If you have a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed, our knowledgeable dentist may recommend a dental crown to restore your tooth. A crown, or cap, is a dental restoration that completely covers the tooth that is damaged. This restores the tooth to its original shape and size and improves the health, beauty, and function of your smile. At Ashburn General Dentistry, we offer dental crowns crafted from several types of materials, including gold, porcelain, acrylic resin, or a combination of these materials. Many patients want our all-porcelain crowns because of the natural, tooth-colored appearance. A dental crown in Ashburn, Virginia can be used in order to:

• Cover and complete a dental implant
• Anchor dental bridges
• Support a filling when little of the original tooth structure remains
• Restore a tooth that is decayed or damaged
• Strengthen a cracked or weakened tooth
• Protect a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment
• Enhance the appearance of a tooth that is stained or misshapen

When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Amit B. Patel will skillfully create your custom-made dental crown and ensure that it will fit with your smile as comfortably and naturally as possible. For more information on the benefits of crowns, we welcome you to contact our friendly dental team and schedule a consultation at our office. We are happy to work with you to improve your smile!
