Crowns from Our Alexandria Dentists

Finding the Solution to Fit Your Needs

Dental crowns are a very popular option for patients looking to restore damaged, weakened, or unsightly teeth. These are metal, ceramic, or porcelain teeth “caps” that fit over the existing tooth to restore your teeth to their natural or desired shape, color, and size.

Dental crowns are only placed over adult teeth and can be used as a solution to a variety of issues, such as:

  • Broken teeth
  • Teeth that are severely worn
  • Weak teeth
  • In conjunction with a dental bridge
  • When teeth need larger fillings
  • To cover implants
  • To correct discolored teeth
  • To correct misshapen teeth

    If you suffer from any of the above, contact King Centre Dental at (703) 854-9955 and speak with our friendly team. We are ready to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.

    The Advantages of Crowns

    Dental crowns can be used for cosmetic dentistry or as a seal to your teeth after a root canal treatment. High-quality dental crowns are known for strengthening the teeth, which means that if used for your root canal, there will be no need for any retreatment and your teeth will remain strong.

    Other advantages of dental crowns include:

    • The size, shape, texture, and color can be controlled and custom-made
    • They can restore the look and function of broken, cracked, or filled back teeth
    • They can be used on damaged or broken teeth

      How Long Do Crowns Last?

      Out of all dental restoration procedures, crowns tent to be the longest-lasting at anywhere between 5 to 15 years depending on your oral health habits. Older metal-made crowns, however, can result in a dark gray discoloration near the gum line, especially as light reflects on it. Thanks to today’s advancements in dental technology, crowns are now more natural-looking and are made with the highest quality material. Newer crowns are fabricated to reflect light like natural teeth and will not cause any discoloration over time.
