Sink Your Teeth into Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are permanent dental caps that are placed over a damaged tooth to improve its appearance and strength. They are an incredibly common type of dental restoration and are available from every affordable dentist Northern Virginia. Dental crowns can be made from several kind of materials, such as porcelain, ceramic, resin, and stainless steel. The type you receive will be based on your dental concerns and your budget. But no matter which kind you choose, all of them are stronger and last longer than both cosmetic dental bonding and cosmetic dentistry veneers. Plus, they all cost less than cosmetic dental bonding or cosmetic dentistry veneers.

When It’s Time for Treatment

After you’ve discussed dental crowns with an affordable dentist Northern Virginia, you will schedule your procedure, which will require two separate visits. You can expect:

  1. At the first appointment, the dentist will prepare the tooth for the crown by either filing it down or filling it in to create the proper shape and strength.
  2. Then, an impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth will be taken and sent to a dental lab to allow the permanent crown to be constructed.
  3. Before leaving the first appointment, a temporary crown will be placed over the tooth for protection until the permanent crown is made.
  4. Once the permanent crown is ready, you will return to the dentist’s office for final placement.
  5. At this appointment, the temporary crown will be removed and replaced with the permanent crown.
  6. The permanent crown is secured into proper position with a special adhesive.
  7. Once the adhesive has set, you can return home and enjoy the confidence of a better, stronger smile.
