Tooth Crowns in Alexandria

Are you frustrated with a discolored or misshapen tooth or worried about the strength of a broken tooth? A tooth crown may be able to preserve your existing teeth or restore your smile.

What Is a Crown?

Also known as dental caps, crowns for teeth are restorative caps that fit over your existing damaged or misshapen teeth. They are shaped like your real teeth, covering your tooth to the gum line.

A tooth cap is designed to help preserve, restore or replace an impaired tooth. If a large filling destabilizes your tooth, a crown may help. If you’ve had a root canal, a crown helps protect your vulnerable tooth from pain, damage and decay. If you have a dental implant, a crown replaces your tooth. There are many other useful applications for crowns, so give our office a call to discover if a crown can help you.

What Type of Dental Crowns Are Available?

Our dentist will review a number of different crown options with you when you come for your consultation. Here are a few types of crowns you might discuss:

Metal

Metal crowns are incredibly durable. Available in several different alloys, you can also choose a gold crown tooth. The drawback to a metal tooth crown is that it won’t blend in with your existing teeth.

Porcelain Fused to Metal

These crowns have the durability of metal and the natural look of porcelain.

Porcelain or Ceramic

Ceramic and porcelain crowns offer a natural appearance that matches your existing teeth. For this reason, a ceramic crown is often a good choice for a front tooth crown.

What Kind of Dentist Does Crowns?

Our general dentists are skilled and can handle many different routine dental procedures, including crowns. Set up an appointment with one of our dentists today to discover if a crown can help restore your tooth’s function.

What Is the Dental Crown Procedure?

Getting a crown is a fairly simple process that takes place after your tooth is properly treated. At your first crown visit, your dentist prepares your tooth for the crown and makes an impression of your tooth. A temporary crown is placed on your tooth while you wait a few weeks for your permanent crown to be made. When your permanent crown is ready, you’ll return to our office and our dentist will cement the crown to your tooth.

What Type of Care and Treatment Is Appropriate for A Crown?

Usually, crowns can be treated like regular teeth. Brush your teeth and floss twice a day. Visit our office for your regular dental cleanings and exams.

Are Dental Crowns Affordable?

Yes, dental crowns are a good way to restore or protect your damaged or weakened teeth. In most cases, your dental insurance or discount dental plan covers much of your dental crown cost.
