Dental Crown Oakton VA

Dental Crown An Overview

Dental crowns are a highly durable and aesthetic dental restoration used to treat a range of dental concerns. The dental crown is designed to cover the entire tooth and can be color and shape matched to fit your natural smile. Stain and decay resistant, a dental crown is permanently attached to a prepared tooth or dental implant and can last for many years.

Crowns can be used to stabilize a tooth after a root canal or to repair damaged or decayed tooth. Dental crowns are commonly attached to dental implants to replace a missing tooth.

Dental crowns are used to:

  • Repair chipped, cracked or damaged teeth
  • Correct discolored teeth
  • Reshape a misshapen tooth
  • Reinforce a tooth post root canal
  • Strengthen anchor teeth for a dental bridge
