Dental Crowns

Dentist in Vienna VA

Dr. Maharaja’s most common restorative procedure is dental crown restoration. Dental crowns are a solution for discolored or misshapen teeth, or to fortify a tooth that is compromised by damage or decay. They also address a variety of issues including replacing metal fillings, closing gaps between teeth, decay, cracked or chipped teeth. Advances in both technology and materials means that patients enjoy an improved experience and more natural looking and lasting results.

Traditional Dental Crowns (Traditional)

The dental crown process will require two visits to our office. The initial visit will include laying the foundation for final placement of a custom, color matched dental crown and will include:

  • Tooth preparation: Dr. Maharaja will prepare your tooth by removing any decay or damage and reducing the structure for placing your crown. Dental impressions will also be taken to be used in the fabrication of your crown so that it fits snugly on your remaining tooth structure and comfortably between existing teeth.
  • Final placement: once complete, your crown will be permanently attached, adjusted and then polished for a beautiful result.

Same Day CEREC Crowns (CAD/CAM)

Our office is equipped with the latest technology to provide you with restorations permanently placed the same-day.

The process begins with optical impressions—digital images that allow the dental crown to be custom-designed for your tooth. Using digital images rather than impressions allows for a smooth and comfortable patient experience. This also means no messy impression trays.

The dental crown is made from quality ceramic material and created in our Vienna dentist office using the CEREC milling machine.
