Your family dentist in Oakville, MO, can give you an outstanding smile

Do you have any damaged or broken teeth? Dental crowns could be the key to restoring your smile! Here at Advanced Dental Arts in Oakville, MO, your family dentist, Dr. Aaron Schertzer offers a wide range of dental services to patients of all ages, including dental crowns to help your smile. Read on to learn more!

What dental crowns can do for you

Dental crowns help rebuild the strength of your smile by covering the entire visible surface of the tooth, above the gumline. When you bite down on a dental crown, the biting stress is spread across the entire surface of your tooth, protecting your tooth from breaking. A large dental filling doesn’t provide the same level of protection, and can actually weaken your tooth by dividing your tooth into sections.

Dental crowns also help restore the beauty of your smile because of their porcelain construction. Porcelain is a beautiful, light-reflective material that closely resembles the look of natural tooth enamel, thus allowing your crown to blend right in with your other teeth. When a porcelain crown is placed, all people will notice is your beautiful smile, not your dental restoration.

Full porcelain crowns are one of the most natural-looking dental restorations available and are suitable for any area of your smile. However, you may need additional strength on your back teeth to protect against biting and chewing stress. For back teeth, you may want porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, also known as PFM crowns. These crowns combine the beauty of porcelain with the strength of a metal underlay.
