Dental crowns from your dentists in Portage, Michigan can give you a stronger, more beautiful smile.

If you have a weakened smile because of damaged teeth, you can strengthen it with dental crowns. Today’s dental crowns can give you the smile you deserve. Dr. Keith Wester and Dr. Jennifer Sarantos at Wester Dental Care in Portage, Michigan offer dental crowns to give you a stronger, more beautiful smile.

Most people don’t think of dental crowns as a versatile dental treatment, but they are. That’s because dental crowns can cover up many unsightly issues with your smile, in addition to restoring your full chewing function and a strong bite.

Dental crowns can provide the strength you need because they cover the entire visible surfaces of your teeth above the gumline. When you bite down on dental crowns, the pressure and chewing force is distributed evenly.

Dental crowns can provide the beauty you want because one of the dental crown materials is porcelain. Porcelain reflects light, just like your natural tooth enamel. In fact, porcelain so closely resembles tooth enamel that once a porcelain crown is placed, it’s difficult to tell the crown apart from your natural teeth.

Full porcelain crowns are the most aesthetically beautiful choice and are suitable for any area of your smile, especially your front teeth, and the teeth that are visible when you smile. For back teeth, it may be helpful to have a little more strength for chewing. In the back areas of your smile, you may want a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. These crowns combine the beauty of porcelain with the strength of a metal underlay.

You deserve to have a strong, beautiful smile, and now you can, thanks to dental crowns. To find out more about the many advantages of dental crowns, call Dr. Keith Wester and Dr. Jennifer Sarantos at Wester Dental Care in Portage, Michigan. Call (269) 327-1119 today.
