Reasons You Might Need A Dental Crown

How dental crowns from your family dentist in Newburgh, NY, can strengthen your smile.

Dental crowns can strengthen your teeth, giving you the chewing ability you need. Dental crowns can also make your teeth more beautiful, improving your appearance and increasing your self-esteem.

Dr. Ricardo Rios at Middle Hope Family Dental in Newburgh, NY, offers a wide variety of family dental services, including dental crowns to strengthen your smile. He proudly serves residents of Newburgh, and Marlboro, NY, and he can help your smile too.

So, how do you know if you need a dental crown? You may need a dental crown if you have a tooth that is:

  • Damaged from severe tooth decay
  • Badly broken and missing significant tooth structure
  • Weakened from previous root canal treatment
  • Heavily restored with a large, old filling

Dental crowns provide the strongest protection available because they cover the entire visible surfaces of each tooth.

Dental crowns increase the surface area available for chewing, so you chew your food better. When you chew your food better, it helps your digestion, which aids your overall health.

Many dental crowns are made of porcelain, which has some amazing properties. Porcelain is light-reflective and looks very similar to natural tooth enamel. A full porcelain crown blends into your smile beautifully.

Full porcelain crowns are an excellent aesthetic choice for your front teeth, but for back teeth, you might need a little more strength.

Your back teeth can benefit from a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. These crowns have a strong metal framework, providing both durability and beauty.

Dental crowns can protect your smile, and make your smile more beautiful too. To find out more about how a dental crown can help you and your smile, call Dr. Ricardo Rios of Middle Hope Family Dental in Newburgh, NY, and serving residents of Marlboro, NY, at (845) 565-4150. Call today.
