Vienna, VA Dental Crowns
Restore your smile with natural looking dental crowns to seal areas of tooth decay or damage, or to replace one or more teeth with a dental crown and bridge or dental implant.
Living with one or more cracked, broken or worn down teeth can be distressing. By the age of 35, over 60% of adults in America have lost a permanent tooth. At Priti Naik DDS, our dental crowns are customized to look and feel just like your natural tooth or teeth to restore smiles for healthier and more aesthetically pleasant smiles. Our patients deserve to embrace healthy and functional smiles with dental crowns in Vienna.
Why Choose A Dental Crown?
Teeth are exposed to the elements of age, decay and even genetics on a daily basis. While not every smile is the same, restorative dentistry is versatile to match each patient’s needs no matter what they may need dental care for through the years. The most common reasons to have a dental crown placed are as follows:
- To seal a tooth when a regular dental filling is not sufficient
- To repair a cracked tooth or protect a fractured tooth
- Covers a dental implant or builds a crown and bridge
- May be used to restore a tooth after root canal treatment
- Can be used in cosmetic dentistry to restore a worn or discolored tooth
Crowns restore the health and structure to the teeth by adding strength, shape and functionality to the smile. After dental crowns, your restored tooth may be stronger than before.
A natural look and feel
Our crowns are customized in our Vienna dental office based on molds and digital x-rays taken of your mouth. After shipping your molds and X-rays to a local dental laboratory, we combine our efforts to create a crown that matches the color, width, height, and shape of your tooth to create a perfect crown for you. Until the permanent crown is created, a temporary crown is placed and sealed over the old surface of your natural tooth. To make sure the surface is accommodating for both the temporary and permanent crown, Dr. Naik will carefully shape and adjust the tooth for its optimal fit. The entire process takes a few very brief appointments.
Durability and Resilience of a Dental Crown
The team at Priti Naik DDS takes pride in the effort, action, and final product of our Vienna dental crowns. We only use precious metals, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, or all-porcelain (ceramic) crowns. Because they are a natural looking, versatile and strong dental solution, all-ceramic crowns are highly recommended. An average crown lasts around 5 to 8 years or longer with proper dental care. By brushing and flossing regularly and coming in every six months for a regular checkup, your smile remains healthy and protected throughout the years.
