What Are Dental Crowns and Why You Might Need One

If you have a broken, decayed, or misshapen tooth, your dentist may recommend getting a custom dental crown in Vienna, VA. At Tysons Dentistry, Dr. Ardalan Sanati and his wife, Dr. Shohreh Shahram, lead our team in providing exceptional dentistry to patients of all ages. Of the many services we offer, custom dental crowns are one of the most popular because of their comfort, versatility, and aesthetics. 

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a versatile restoration that improves a natural tooth's function, strength, and appearance. Your dentist places the tooth-shaped cap over a natural tooth and cements it in place, so it stays secure and stable. If you have a fractured tooth, large cavity, or large cracked filling, a custom dental crown may be the solution to your needs. Your dentist can make a dental crown from various materials, including porcelain, ceramics, and metals. 

Why Might I Need a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns can correct numerous issues, from restorative to cosmetic. Your dentist can assess your mouth and develop a treatment plan to exceed your expectations depending on your specific needs.

With a dental crown, you can do the following:

  • Conceal a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Stabilize your bite (how your teeth come together)
  • Cover a tooth with deep or severe decay
  • Top a dental implant
  • Secure a dental bridge 
  • Restore a cracked, broken, or damaged tooth
  • Strengthen a brittle or weak tooth
  • Protect a tooth that's undergone root canal treatment
  • Improve your dental function (e.g., chewing, biting)
  • Enhance your smile's aesthetics

Dental crowns can transform your mouth's health and appearance, and your dentist can create a custom crown that compliments your natural smile. No one will ever know your dental crown isn't a natural tooth, and you can enjoy eating, speaking, and socializing with confidence again.
