Dental crowns restore damaged teeth, offering protection and enhancing appearance. They’re a standard service at Dental Center of Tysons Corner.

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown encases a tooth, often used for restoration or enhancing smiles. Crowns vary in material—metal, ceramic-on-metal, all-ceramic—chosen based on location and aesthetic preferences. Front teeth typically require all-ceramic for natural appearance, while ceramic-on-metal combines aesthetics with durability.

What are dental bridges?

A dental bridge is a non-surgical solution for replacing missing teeth, offered at Grove Dental Clinic. Supported by two crowns, the new tooth blends seamlessly with surrounding teeth, crafted from ceramic or porcelain for a natural appearance. Dr. Chaudhry, our cosmetic dentist, ensures the new tooth looks and feels exceptional.

Before the Procedure

For cosmetic reasons, whitening teeth before dental crowns or bridges is recommended. Dental Center of Tysons Corner provides teeth whitening procedures for a brighter smile, ensuring crowns and bridges match newly whitened teeth. Planning for some downtime post-procedure is advisable due to tooth sensitivity.

Process

For natural-looking results, trust a skilled cosmetic dentist like those at Dental Center of Tysons Corner, who prioritize patient comfort with sedation dentistry. Impressions of the teeth are taken before crafting crowns or bridges in a dental lab.

For dental crowns, the tooth is prepared by removing enamel to accommodate the crown. A temporary crown is placed while awaiting the permanent one. Upon return, the temporary is replaced with the permanent crown using dental bonding.

With dental bridges, crowns are placed on adjacent teeth, anchoring the synthetic tooth in place. This restores missing teeth naturally and enhances functionality.

After the Procedure

When receiving dental restorations, teeth may be sensitive post-preparation. Wearing a temporary crown is necessary until the permanent one is ready. We utilize sedation dentistry to ensure comfort during and after the procedure, recommending oral pain medication for a few days afterward.

The advantage of crowns lies in their protective function, allowing comfortable consumption of favorite foods without discomfort. They restore mouth functionality, facilitating normal eating, drinking, and speaking. Ideal for those with sensitive, cracked, or chipped teeth or who’ve had a root canal. Similarly, bridges offer stability for eating and speaking normally, suiting individuals with active lifestyles. To explore these options, call 703-259-8843 to schedule an appointment at Dental Center of Tysons Corner, where we prioritize beautiful and functional smiles for Mclean residents.
