Feel Like Royalty With A New Crown | Rochester Hills, MI
The early American colonists threw aside monarchy when they fought for and gained their independence from Great Britain.
And yet, we’ve held onto a few symbolic ties to monarchy. All across the country, high schools pick homecoming kings and prom queens. Even beauty pageant winners, like Miss America, gets a crown to wear, and we talk about her “reign” until the next winner is named.
Your dentist can give you a crown, too. And from what we’ve seen, many of our patients who receive them leave our office feeling like kings and queens.
Now, we probably won’t have an elaborate coronation if you get a crown at Hubbard and Leath Dental in Rochester Hills, but we will treat you like royalty while you are here.
Why you might want a crown or bridge
Crowns and bridges are a great way to improve your smile. If you feel like something is missing in your smile, a crown or bridge might be perfect for you.
Here are just a few reasons you may want to consider crowns:
• To replace a missing or decayed teeth. If you are missing a tooth or teeth, a crown or bridge can fill that hole. A quality dental crown or bridge can be used to span the gap between your remaining original teeth.
• To protect weak teeth. You may still have all your teeth, but all of them may not be healthy. If you have experienced tooth decay, you may be better off reshaping that tooth (to remove the decay) or removing it completely and replacing it with a dental crown. If you need more than one tooth removed, a dental bridge may be in order.
• To fix chipped or broken teeth. A dental crown may be used to cover a chipped or broken tooth and to give you the more natural looking smile you want.
• To cover discolored teeth. You might have teeth that have become stained as a result of too many stain-causing foods and drinks (such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks), or you are or were a long-time tobacco use. By reshaping the yellowed parts of your teeth, we can fit you with a dental crown to give you back a pearly white shine.
Crowns and bridges also benefit your remaining teeth. Not only do they provide support, dental crowns and bridges can protect against tooth decay, which could harm your remaining teeth.
Your crown or bridge can do wonders for your oral health and the look of your smile. And that just might give you a reason to smile more often.
More confidence with crowns
We’ve met many patients who have lost self-confidence along with their teeth.
When you are ashamed or embarrassed by how your teeth look, you may not want to go out in public. You might avoid gathering with family and friends. You may try to get out of meeting new clients or customers for your job.
That’s not good for you, your family, your friends, or your career.
Porcelain crowns and bridges can change all those feelings along with your smile. The reason we use porcelain to make our dental crowns is because it looks and feels like real teeth.
That means a finished crown or bridge will blend in with your original teeth, and it may help restore your full chewing power. That means you can eat all the foods you love without worrying about something getting stuck or something coming loose when you take a bite.
When you get your dental crown or bridge, you will look great, and there’s a good chance you will feel even better.
People say a beautiful smile lights up a room for a reason. The people with those kinds of smiles have a lot of confidence to go with it.
In addition to crowns and bridges, you also may want to consider and inlay or onlay.
If you’ve had a filling, you know that it will eventually get old. This can lead to new cavities, damage, or decay in your tooth. Too much damage will make another filling difficult if not impossible.
In those situations, an inlay or onlay can restore the appearance of your teeth. An inlay fits inside the ridges of a tooth and provides a sturdy restoration. An onlay extends over the ridges of your tooth.
Either option looks great, and it may be used in combination with other cosmetic dental services.
Look your best, feel your best
If you want to regain the confidence you used to have in your smile, dental crowns and bridges are an excellent way to make that happen. Our porcelain crowns and bridges look like real teeth, act like real teeth, and function just as well as real teeth.
