A dental crown is a tooth-shaped restoration that is placed over a tooth to restore its size, appearance, shape, or size. Drs. Fischer and Fischer may suggest a dental crown in Centreville, Virginia, to:

– Hold a weak tooth together
– Restore a broken tooth
– Support a dental bridge
– Restore a tooth that has extensive decay
– Restore a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
– Improve the look of a tooth

Our dentists will examine the tooth and make sure that it can support a dental crown before placing one. The tooth is then shaped to allow room for the crown. At this point, impressions are taken of the tooth and of the surrounding teeth so that your crown can be custom made. Once your dental crown is ready, our dentists will check the fit and color and make any needed adjustments. Then the crown is properly positioned and cemented in place.

We welcome you to contact Fischer Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to learn more about crowns and how they can benefit your oral health and to schedule your next visit. We look forward to helping you reach a healthy, happy smile.
