Dental Crowns: Strong and Beautiful

At our clinic, we understand the importance of a confident and healthy smile. As part of our top-tier dental services, we offer dental crowns to our esteemed patients in the Northern Virginia communities. Dental crowns are an effective solution for preserving damaged teeth and enhancing your smile. However, as with all dental procedures, it's essential to understand the pros and cons.

Pros of Dental Crowns

  1. Restores Your Smile: Dental crowns can cover discolored or misshapen teeth, providing a more appealing and natural-looking smile that can boost your confidence.
  2. Enhanced Durability: Crowns are designed to endure the rigors of biting and chewing, making them a long-lasting solution to oral health issues.
  3. Protective Shield: A dental crown acts as a shield for a damaged tooth, protecting it from further harm and potentially saving it from extraction.
  4. Comfort and Convenience: With modern technology, dental crowns can be custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly, offering comfort and convenience in your journey to oral health.

Cons of Dental Crowns

  1. Invasive Procedure: To fit a crown, a portion of your tooth will need to be removed. While necessary, this process is invasive and irreversible.
  2. Potential Discomfort: Some patients may experience sensitivity or discomfort following the placement of a dental crown.
  3. Maintenance: Like natural teeth, dental crowns require regular care and good oral hygiene to prevent problems like gum disease or decay in the remaining part of the tooth.

Remember, our dedicated team will be with you every step of the way, ensuring you get the VIP experience you deserve. We're committed to helping you achieve and maintain optimal oral health. 

Frequently Asked Questions


Question: Dental crowns seem to be an invasive procedure. I'm not comfortable with the idea of removing a part of my tooth.
Answer: It's completely understandable to have concerns about undergoing an invasive procedure. However, the part of the tooth that is usually removed is typically already damaged. The objective is to prevent further decay and maintain your oral health. Also, our team of professionals is highly skilled and experienced, ensuring that the procedure is as comfortable and painless as possible.
Question: I'm worried about potential discomfort or sensitivity after getting a dental crown.
Answer: Some sensitivity or discomfort can occur initially after the crown placement, but this is typically temporary. We can recommend suitable sensitivity toothpastes or other remedies to help manage this. If the discomfort persists, our team is always available for follow-up care.
Question: Dental crowns seem to require a lot of maintenance.
Answer: While it's true that dental crowns require care, the routine is not different from the one you should already be following for your natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are all that is needed to maintain your dental crown.
Question: I'm worried about the cost of dental crowns.
Answer: We understand that cost is a significant factor in making healthcare decisions. While it's true that dental crowns can be an investment, they are also a long-term solution that can prevent further dental issues, which could potentially be more costly in the future. We also offer various financing options and will work with you to find a solution that fits within your budget.
Question: I'm not sure if I need a dental crown or if there are other less invasive options available.
Answer: Each patient is unique and dental crowns may not be the best solution for everyone. We always recommend a consultation where we can evaluate your specific needs and discuss various treatment options. Our goal is to ensure you receive the treatment that is best suited for your individual oral health needs.
