How dental crowns from your dentist in Woodbridge can enhance your smiledental crowns

Do you have damaged, broken teeth? Are your teeth full of large, crumbly metal fillings? If you answered yes to either of these questions, dental crowns are right for you. Dental crowns can make your teeth stronger, and they can also make your smile more beautiful. Dr. Marv Thomas at The Dental Spa, with two convenient office locations in Woodbridge, VA, wants to share the facts about how dental crowns can enhance your smile.

Dental crowns are often a much better choice than large fillings because a large filling may actually weaken a tooth, causing the tooth to break. A crown strengthens your entire tooth because it covers the whole visible surface of your tooth, spreading the biting pressure over the entire tooth surface. A crown works much like a suit-of-armor, creating a strong, protective shield around the vulnerable parts of your tooth.

Dental crowns are a perfect choice to repair problems like these:

  • Broken, damaged teeth
  • Worn down, aging teeth
  • Brittle teeth from root canal treatment

Today’s dental crowns can also help enhance the looks of your smile. In the past, dental crowns were made of materials that were strong, but not very lifelike. Thanks to modern materials like high-grade dental ceramic, you can have a crown that improves your smile. When you smile, you want the world to see a dazzling smile, not a smile full of ugly, crumbly metal fillings.

You can choose a full porcelain crown which looks exactly like your natural tooth surface. Porcelain reflects light, providing you with a dental restoration that looks beautiful, and is strong too.

If you prefer another material for your crown, you can also choose full gold or porcelain-fused-to-metal. Dr. Thomas will discuss the advantages of different crown materials with you and help you make the best choice.

Dental crowns are the right choice for just about everyone. They provide unmatched protection and beauty to your teeth, so your smile can really stand out!
