Tooth Crowns in Falls Church

If you have a tooth that is deeply damaged by decay, you may be a candidate for a tooth crown.

Why Is a Dental Crown Used?

Crowns for teeth are remarkably versatile. They are basically dental caps designed to cover your damaged or discolored teeth down to the gum line. This tooth cap is durable, providing you with the function you need for everyday living.

What Type of Dentist Places Crowns?

General dentists are skilled in performing crown procedures, so give our office a call for an assessment.

What Type of Dental Crowns Are Available for Placement?

A tooth crown can be temporary or permanent. Temporary crowns are usually made of resin or stainless steel, lasting a few weeks to a few months. Permanent crowns have a much longer lifespan and come in a variety of materials.


You’ve probably seen a gold crown tooth and wondered at its purpose. Gold is just one of the alloys used in metal crowns, which are known for their excellent strength and longevity. These are ideal crowns for back teeth because they can withstand strong biting power.

All Porcelain or All Ceramic

A ceramic crown is natural-looking and fits with your existing smile. Ceramic or porcelain crowns are often chosen as a front tooth crown, but they’re prone to cracking so durability may be an issue.

Porcelain and Metal

Porcelain fused to metal crowns, or PFM, offer the best of porcelain and metal. These feature a metal framework that offers an ideal surface for cementing the crown to your tooth. It’s also very robust, so it stands up well to long-term use. The metal frame is covered with porcelain which can be matched to your existing tooth color.

How Does the Dental Crown Procedure Work?

The process can usually be completed in two visits to our office. If you need a root canal or a dental post implant, that process needs to be completed before your crown visit. At your first crown appointment, our dentist will make an impression of your tooth and file away some of your tooth to help the crown fit more precisely. Depending on your situation, a numbing agent may be used. A temporary crown protects your tooth until your second crown visit. When you return to our office after a few weeks, your permanent crown is cemented onto your tooth, and your dentist makes any necessary minor adjustments.

What Kind of Care Is Needed with a Crown?

You don’t need to practice any special routines for your crown. Simply continue your good oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing and keep to a regular schedule of dental cleanings.

What Are the Costs Associated with Dental Crowns?

Your dental crown cost depends mostly on the type of crown you select. Often, crowns are partially covered by dental insurance. We’re always happy to review your options with you so you can find the right crown for you and your budget. Give us a call today to set up an appointment.
