How your cosmetic dentist in Oakville, Missouri can help your smile

Teeth can become damaged for many reasons. Dental decay, traumatic injury and aging are just some of the causes of tooth damage. No matter what the cause is, chances are a permanent dental crown is the perfect solution to restore full chewing function and beauty to Dental Crownsyour smile. Dr. Aaron M. Schertzer, your cosmetic dentist at Advanced Dental Arts in Oakville, Missouri wants to help you discover what permanent crowns can do for you.

Permanent dental crowns from your cosmetic dentist in Oakville can also provide a strong replacement for old, bulky and unsightly metal fillings which can break over time. A permanent crown will encase the entire visible part of your tooth. It fits like a suit of armor, protecting your tooth against breakage from strong biting forces. Dental crowns are also recommended for teeth that have had root canals because these teeth can become brittle, weaker and more prone to breakage.

Sometimes teeth are so badly damaged that there is not enough tooth surface to place a crown. In these cases, your cosmetic dentist in Oakville may need to place metal posts inside your tooth, surrounded by a metal framework. This procedure, called a build-up, provides additional surface to place the crown.

Your cosmetic dentist in Oakville offers a full range of crown materials, each with its own advantages. You can choose from:

  • Full gold, which is the strongest crown material and usually reserved for back teeth where you need strength for chewing
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal, which is strong and beautiful, suitable for any location in the mouth
  • Full porcelain, which is the most natural-looking crown material; porcelain reflects light just like your natural teeth. Porcelain crowns are an excellent choice for teeth that are visible when you smile.

You can restore your damaged teeth with permanent dental crowns. Today’s dental crowns make a practical, beautiful addition to your smile. They can help ensure you have many years of great smiles!
