What your dentist in Lansing wants you to know
Dental crowns offer many benefits that dental fillings just can’t match. In fact, for badly damaged, broken teeth, dental crowns are the best option to help you regain a strong smile. Dr. Scott Stone at Smile by Stone in Lansing, MI, wants to share how dental crowns can benefit you and your smile.
Dental crowns work differently than dental fillings because a dental crown encases the entire visible area of your tooth above the gumline. A crown protects your tooth like a suit-of-armor so that when you bite down, the force and pressure of biting are spread out evenly across the tooth surface. Your tooth is protected against breakage from biting down on foods.
In contrast, a dental filling can weaken your tooth by creating a separation between different sections of your tooth. When you bite down, one area of your tooth can feel the pressure and both the filling and a part of your tooth can break off.
In addition to making your teeth stronger, dental crowns can also make your smile more beautiful. If you have old, ugly, crumbly metal fillings, you should consider replacing them with beautiful porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns enhance your smile because they provide:
- Natural-looking beauty; porcelain is translucent, or light-reflective, just like your tooth enamel, so porcelain crowns look naturally beautiful, just like your teeth.
- Worry-free beauty; porcelain is stain-resistant, so your new porcelain crowns will stay sparkling white for years.

Why settle for a damaged, broken smile when you can have a strong smile that helps you enjoy the foods you love? Why settle for a smile filled with ugly metal when you can have a beautiful smile that enhances your appearance? The answer is dental crowns made of pure, sparkling porcelain.
