Dental crowns make it possible to restore beauty and function to damaged teeth. Dental crowns provide a strong outer shell that allows damaged teeth to bite and chew food again. Additionally, dental crowns restore beauty by creating a flawless new exterior. When used with bridgework, crowns also help fill in the gaps where teeth are missing. Here our office in Sherman, TX, Dr. Julie Folger and Dr. Ralf Poineal can help you decide if crowns are right for you.

How Dental Crowns Help

Dental crowns look like natural teeth but are hollow shells that fit over existing teeth like a cap. Once a crown is in place, the tooth will be completely enclosed inside. Dental crowns help by protecting, strengthening, and restoring damaged teeth. With a crown over a damaged tooth, that tooth will be protected from sustaining further wear and tear or damage. The crown also gives the tooth a strong exterior for performing normal biting and chewing functions the tooth might previously have been too weak to carry out.

In addition to restoring function to damaged teeth, dental crowns also restore beauty in several ways. Teeth that are extremely worn down or damaged might no longer look their best. Dental crowns improve the appearance of those teeth by providing a flawless outer shell. Additionally, beauty can be restored to teeth with cosmetic issues, such as chips, cracks, or discolorations. Once dental crowns are in place, all anyone will see is your beautiful new smile.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns can also be used in conjunction with bridgework to restore your smile when several teeth are missing. In the middle of the bridge are pontics, which are artificial teeth that fill in the gaps where natural teeth are missing. At each end of the bridge is a dental crown. The dental crowns help hold the bridgework securely in place.

Dental crowns can be placed over existing teeth on either side of the gap or they can be placed over dental implants if needed. The skilled dental professionals at our office in Sherman can restore your smile with crowns and bridges.

Porcelain VeneersDental veneers can reshape your worn or damaged smile into something to be truly proud of. From tweaking a single tooth with a small imperfection to covering your visible smile to give you a totally different look, porcelain veneers’ versatility can benefit patients in many different situations. Find out more about dental veneers and what they could mean for your smile with Dr. Julie Folger and Dr. Ralf Poineal in Sherman, TX.

What are dental veneers? 
Dental veneers are a super-thin, shell-like covering for your tooth. A dental laboratory creates each veneer by hand and customizes it to fit perfectly into your smile. The veneer attaches permanently to the surface of a tooth and masks its appearance to give it a new look.

Can porcelain dental veneers help my smile?

Dental veneers can help your teeth in a variety of situations. Dentists most often use veneers to treat:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • slight misalignments
  • slight gaps
  • yellowed teeth
  • discolored teeth

Porcelain Dental Veneers in Sherman, TX 
If you think you can benefit from this powerful dental treatment, consult with your dentist to ensure that this is the best dental procedure for you. In some cases, other cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening or even orthodontics may be better suited to treating your smile.

Porcelain dental restorations and natural teeth alike require a committed at-home oral care routine. The American Dental Association recommends brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once. In addition to seeing your dentist at least twice a year for routine examinations and professional cleanings, this at-home routine will keep your mouth healthy and free from teeth decay and gum disease so you can enjoy your veneers for years to come.
