Restoring Your Weak Teeth With Dental Crowns
If you have cracked, chipped, or weak teeth, then you need a viable way to strengthen your teeth and restore the beautiful aesthetics of your smile.
There are a variety of reasons why your teeth may be weak, but if you choose a high- quality provider of dental crowns, then you can rest assured that your teeth will be strong and restored.
Allow our dentists of Fairfax, VA to show you how crowns work and how they can restore your smile by utilizing dental crowns.
Why Are My Teeth Worn, Weak, or Chipped?
There are several potential reasons why your teeth may be worn, weak, or chipped. These include:
- Eating hard foods which can crack your teeth
- Dental hygiene mistakes leading to tooth decay
- Dental trauma
If you have cracked, chipped, weak, or decayed teeth, then a set of dental crowns may be the perfect solution for you.
What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are coverings made of porcelain which go over your entire tooth, giving them both renewed strength and a natural aesthetic.
In the past, most crowns were made of metal. However, with new advances in dentistry, metal crowns are a thing of the past. In fact, your crown will look exactly like a natural tooth, retaining the same strength as your original tooth enamel while also being more resistant to cracks and chips.

The Latest Crown Technology
Our dentists use only the latest technology when it comes to applying crowns. They utilize several techniques to make the crown application painless, quick, and easy. These techniques include:
- E4D equipment
- CAD-CAM scan technology
With E4D equipment, our dentists will be able to create your crowns on-site instead of having to send them to a laboratory. This means that you will be able to get your new crowns quicker than ever before!
This laser-guided equipment will snap images of your tooth, design your crowns, and create your crowns in about an hour!
When we use CAD-CAM scan technology, our dentists will be able to virtually eliminate the process of taking impressions of your teeth. Not only is this easier for you, it is also a more accurate way to design your crowns.
Therefore, you can rest assured that when you get dental crowns, they will fit perfectly, feel natural, and restore your teeth!
