While the enamel layer on each of your teeth is very strong and durable, it is still not impervious to problems caused by tooth decay. At the same time, things like a blow to the face, grinding your teeth at night, or a hard fall can actually impart enough force to chip, crack, or fracture your tooth enamel. In a situation like this Buhler Dental Care will often recommend having the entire enamel layer of a tooth effectively replaced by a crown.

In other instances, you might have a tooth in your smile with imperfections like chips, stains or past dental work. At Buhler Dental Care we can also restore the appearance of a tooth by installing a porcelain crown.The particular material that your dentist recommends for the crown will be based on the tooth’s primary function in your mouth and its prevalence in your smile.

Crowns made from base metals and gold alloys are very durable, making them a good choice for molars that are called upon to grind and chew food. A prominent tooth in your smile calls for a porcelain or porcelain fused to metal crown. The shade of the porcelain can be adjusted to match your existing natural teeth.

If you have one or more teeth that need restoration, you should call Buhler Dental Care at (801) 794-9905 to schedule a consultation to see if a crown restoration is right for you.
