Problems Dental Crowns Fix
Northern Virginia, including Arlington, Tysons Corner, Alexandria, Fairfax, and McLean, Virginia Cosmetic Dentistry
At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, Arlington Cosmetic Dentists, Dr. Lee and Dr. Oh use dental crowns to design cosmetic improvements as well as to correct therapeutic problems. There is really quite a wide range of patient needs and problems dental crowns fix because of their versatility.
DENTAL CROWNS STRENGTHEN TEETH
Our northern Virginia cosmetic dentists use only all-porcelain crowns because they have several advantages:
- All-porcelain crowns can be colored and shaped to blend more naturally and aesthetically with your teeth
- All-porcelain crowns have strong composition
- All-porcelain crowns are resistant to expansion and contraction when exposed to heat and cold
- All-porcelain crowns are a perfect material for dental implants
DENTAL CROWNS PROTECT AND RESTORE DECAYED OR DAMAGED TEETH
A tooth that is cracked, chipped, broken or severely decayed can be protected with a dental crown and have its original shape restored so that it feels and functions as it did before becoming damaged. All-porcelain crowns protect the remaining tooth as well as metal crowns do. All-porcelain crowns can be expected to last ten or more years if cared for properly.
TOOTH CROWNS AS DENTAL BRIDGE ANCHORS
Dental bridges are wonderful devices to replace missing teeth and keep your natural teeth from moving out of position. In the past bridges clipped in place, and had to be removed for cleaning. Occasionally they would become lost, get broken, or even change shape enough to lose their original fit. Today, the cosmetic surgeons at Galleria Dental Aesthetics can anchor your dental bridge to neighboring teeth with crowns that will hold them in place permanently. The result is that you maintain them as you would your natural teeth, and because the bridge is immobilized there is less chance of abrasion against your gums and loss of valuable supporting bone structure.
DENTAL CROWNS IMPROVE YOUR SMILE
Why feel like “snaggletooth” when our cosmetic dentists can give you an endearing smile that makes you feel proud? Porcelain crowns can be placed on any tooth and are one of several fixes for damaged teeth. Other options for less damaged teeth, like porcelain veneers or inlays and onlays may be worth considering as well, so ask your cosmetic dentist which treatment is best for you.
