Dental Crown An Overview
Whether you need a new dental crown or want to replace an old crown, Ridgetop Dental in Reston, VA will provide you with a stable, beautiful result. Dental crowns are a common procedure in our Reston, VA dental office. A dental crown covers the entire tooth and is permanently bonded into place. The crown provides strength, aesthetics and lasting durable function. Dental crowns are stain and decay resistant and can last for many years. Dental crowns can be color matched to blend seamlessly with your smile for beautiful results.

Dental Crown What to Expect
You will first meet with Dr. Datta, Dr. Shaw or Dr. Sensenbrenner to discuss your dental concerns and cosmetic goals. A personalized treatment plan will be recommended and a smile design services may be offered to ensure that your result meets your cosmetic needs.
Before the process of making the dental crown begins, one of our Reston, VA dentists will perform a root canal or fill a cavity if it’s requried. Then they will gently shape the tooth, removing some of the existing tooth structure to make room for the dental crown. If there is not sufficient tooth structure to support the dental crown, the dentist may build up the tooth with a special filling. This preparation helps to create a solid foundation for the dental restoration.
Digital impressions will be taken and used with the CEREC technology to plan and then mill a custom crown that is also color matched to your natural smile and made to fit precisely over your tooth.
After the dentist is sure the permanent crown is a good fit and the color matches, they will secure the restoration to the tooth. They will complete the process by polishing and smoothing the surface. You will leave our Reston, Virginia dentist office with your final restoration in place.
