Dental crowns are used to restore badly decayed, chipped, cracked, weakened, discolored, and damaged teeth. Dr. Mark Makela uses dental crownshigh quality dental crowns at his practice in Petoskey, MI as a solution for restoring teeth that have been weakened or damaged. Read on to learn about how dental crowns help restore damaged teeth.

Strengthen Your Teeth- If your tooth has been severely damaged by decay, a filling can't replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A dental crown will make the damaged tooth stronger.

Improve Your Smile- Crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be placed to cover badly discolored, broken, cracked or misshapen teeth. All-porcelain crowns are smooth and translucent, matching the shade and size of your natural teeth. They look just like normal teeth.

Support Damaged Teeth- Dental crowns hold together cracked or broken teeth. In many cases dental crowns last up to 40 years. Maintaining good oral hygiene will help your dental crown last longer.

Restore The Function of Teeth- Dental crowns restores teeth to their normal shape, size and function. Dental crowns can help you chew better. They will also restore your ability to speak. Dental crowns restore full function of your damaged teeth.

Save Your Teeth- Teeth that have been weakened can be saved by covering them with a crown. When teeth are severely damaged by an infection, tooth decay, or trauma, the teeth become weaker. This leaves them prone to further damage unless your Petoskey dentist does something to preserve them.
