What your dentist in Danvers wants you to knowdental crowns

Dental crowns are an extremely effective way to protect your teeth from breaking. If you have large, old fillings, you’ve probably noticed that they crumble and break eventually. Dental crowns work differently by protecting your teeth. Dr. Mahshid Mirghassemi at Liberty Tree Prosthodontics in Danvers, MA, wants to share the facts about dental crowns and how they can help your smile.

A dental crown is a strong restoration that covers the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline. By covering the entire tooth surface, when you bite down, the biting pressure is spread evenly across the entire tooth surface. This even distribution of stress prevents your tooth from breaking. The truth is dental crowns strengthen and protect your teeth.

In contrast, a dental filling can weaken a tooth by creating a wedge between different sections of your tooth. When you bite down on a filling, it can create stress on one section of your tooth, and the section can break off, taking both filling and tooth structure away.

Making your teeth stronger is not the only way dental crowns can benefit you and your smile. Today’s dental crowns are fabricated from natural-looking materials like porcelain, so crowns can actually enhance the appearance of your smile. Porcelain is light-reflective, just like tooth enamel. Your dental crowns will look just like natural teeth, only better! Unlike some filling materials, porcelain doesn’t pick up stains from foods or beverages, so your new smile can stay beautiful for years.

At Liberty Tree Prosthodontics, Dr. Mirghassemi uses CEREC revolutionary same-day crown technology to deliver your crown in one day, while you are in the office. No more return visits for crown placement, and no more wearing an unsightly, uncomfortable temporary crown. Now you can have your new smile in just one day!
