Dental crowns from your dentists in Sherman Oaks, California can give you an outstanding smile.
There are many ways dental crowns can help your smile. They can both strengthen a damaged tooth and make it more beautiful too. Dr. Michael Amir and Dr. Larry Hamer at SC Dental Group offer dental crowns to give you an outstanding smile. They proudly serve residents of Sherman Oaks, and Encino, California and they can help your smile too.
Dental crowns help your smile by restoring damaged, broken teeth. A dental crown covers the entire visible surface of your tooth, above the gumline. It fits your tooth like a glove, and when you bite down on a crown, the crown protects your tooth from breaking. It does this by spreading out the biting and chewing stress, across the entire surface of your tooth.
Dental crowns can also help your smile by giving your smile a more natural, beautiful look. One of the most common dental crown materials is porcelain, and porcelain reflects light, just like natural tooth enamel. Porcelain so closely resembles tooth structure, that after a porcelain crown is placed, it blends perfectly with your natural teeth.
Full porcelain is an excellent choice to provide the most aesthetically beautiful, natural-looking crown. These crowns are often placed on front teeth and teeth that are visible when you smile.
Sometimes you need extra strength for chewing, so you may want to consider a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. These crowns provide the beauty of porcelain and also the strength of a metal underlay. PFM crowns are often placed on back teeth where you need increased strength.
If your smile is damaged and needs a little extra help, think about dental crowns. To find out more about the benefits of dental crowns, call Dr. Michael Amir and Dr. Larry Hamer at SC Dental Group, serving residents of Sherman Oaks, and Encino, California. Call (818) 905-5400 today.
