The Many Uses Of Dental Crowns

Posted: Feb, 07, 2023

Dental crowns from your dentist in Clinton Township, MI, can rescue your smile.

As you age, your smile ages with you, often resulting in tooth wear, damaged tooth structure, and other issues. Dental crowns can restore a more youthful smile. You can have excellent chewing function without worrying about breaking your fillings or teeth. You can also have a beautiful smile!

Dr. Ramakrishna Nallapaneni of Riverside Family Dental in Clinton Township, MI, offers a wide range of dental services, including dental crowns to help your smile.

Dental crowns provide superb tooth protection because they encase your entire visible tooth structure in a protective cover that is strong and looks natural. These are just a few of the many uses of dental crowns:

  • Replacing large, old, or crumbled metal fillings
  • Hiding unattractive, stained tooth structure
  • Protecting weakened or compromised tooth enamel
  • Restoring large areas of tooth decay or damage
  • Repairing age-related tooth wear, abrasion, or erosion

A common dental crown material is porcelain, which closely resembles natural tooth structure. In fact, porcelain dental crowns are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Porcelain also reflects light, giving your smile a dazzling appearance. A full porcelain crown is a great choice for front teeth and teeth that are visible when you smile.

For back teeth, a little more strength is often recommended. Porcelain can be fused to a metal foundation. This is known as a porcelain-fused-to-metal or PFM crown. PFM crowns provide superb strength with the beauty of porcelain.

Porcelain and PFM dental crowns offer some important benefits like these:

  • Natural-looking beauty
  • Decades-long protection
  • Stain-resistance


You and your smile deserve to enjoy the benefits of dental crowns. To find out more about the many uses of dental crowns and how they can help your smile, call Dr. Nallapaneni of Riverside Family Dental in Clinton Township, MI, at (586) 468-0983 now!
