How Dental Crowns from Your Dentists in Berlin, Connecticut Can Rebuild Your Smile

Is your smile weakened because of damaged teeth? If so, it’s time to rebuild your smile with dental crowns! If you’ve been thinking your only choice is large fillings, think again. Dental crowns can give you a strong, beautiful, and best of all, natural-looking smile. Drs. Michael S. Tosatti and Samantha C. Matus in Berlin, Connecticut, are experts in the dental field and are ecstatic to apply a crown on your damaged teeth and make your smile beautiful again.

How Do Crowns Work?

A dental crown encases your tooth in a covering that protects it from breaking. Dental crowns spread the stress and pressure of biting and chewing out across the entire surface of your tooth. This even distribution of pressure helps keep your tooth from breaking. A filling doesn’t provide as much protection because it separates your tooth structurally, which can make the tooth weaker and more prone to breakage.

If you have teeth that are badly damaged with not much tooth structure remaining, your dentist may need to place a post inside your tooth and create a metal framework to support the crown.

What Are They Made of?

Today’s dental crowns are made of natural-looking materials that look just like tooth enamel. Porcelain is a common material used in dental crowns because it is durable, and also reflects light, making it virtually indistinguishable from tooth structure. Also, because porcelain is stainless, your crowns can also enhance the beauty of your smile in addition to strengthening your teeth.
