Dental Crowns

Do you have a damaged tooth, a misshapen or discolored tooth, or a painful tooth? Dental crowns may be part of the solution. We craft our crowns from high-quality materials that are compatible with the human body, keeping your teeth and your overall health safe for the long term. If you need a tooth crown, call Dr. Rena Vakay now. 

What Is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is a tooth cap that covers the top and sides of a tooth. We make them from a long-lasting material like porcelain that looks like a real tooth. We can match it to the color of your other teeth, or you can choose an alternate color like gold. 

If your tooth is cracked, broken, or vulnerable in some other way, we can use this quick process: 

  1. Capture professional impressions of your tooth. 
  2. Make your crown in the lab based on the impressions. 
  3. Prepare the tooth shape for the new crown.
  4. Bond the crown to the prepared tooth. 
  5. Adjust your tooth cap as needed to make it look great in your smile. 

We can also craft a full dental crown if you need a tooth replacement. This can rest in the empty socket either attached to a dental implant or placed in a dental bridge. 

Benefits of Dental Crowns

If you have a cracked, diseased, or broken tooth, it is dangerous to leave it as it is. There is a risk of infection because bacteria can slip through the tooth damage into the sensitive tissues within the tooth. 

The tooth crown process will reinforce and strengthen the tooth to stop the damage from spreading, keep out bacteria, and give you back the ability to chew normally. 

You might have a tooth that looks bad in some way, that you have tried to hide in pictures. A new crown will make it look amazing for many years. Overall, dental crowns: 

  • Give teeth strength for a long life. 
  • Fight off tooth decay.
  • Hold the tooth together, preventing spreading cracks. 
  • Look great in your smile. 
  • Only need one or two appointments.

If you’re in the Centreville area of Virginia, contact Centreville Dental Wellness Center for a tooth crown. We can discuss the restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures that will protect your teeth and improve the aesthetics of your smile. 

When Is a Tooth Crown Needed?

After a professional exam, Dr. Vacay or Dr. Abel will recommend the most effective option to restore your tooth and protect your health. This could be a tooth crown. A dental crown is often used to: 

  • Restore a Tooth After a Cavity: A tooth cap reinforces the tooth and keeps it strong long-term after a major cavity.
  • Cover or Replace a Filling: If you have an old tooth filling, it may be at the end of its life. We can remove the filling and protect the tooth with a new tooth cap.
  • Cosmetically Restore a Tooth: We can cover and reshape a tooth that is discolored, damaged, or misshapen. Get a tooth that looks exactly the way you want. 
  • Replace a Tooth: We can craft a full new tooth to replace a lost tooth and put it in place with an implant or bridge. 
  • Protect a Damaged Tooth: If your tooth has been chipped or cracked, a crown gives it new structure and strength.
  • Finish a Root Canal Treatment: A crown is perfect for preventing further infection after a root canal.

When we bond a crown in place, we expect you to be able to chew the foods you like and to smile naturally for many years. If you have any trouble, we’ll quickly examine your crown and adjust or repair it.

What Our Patients Say

Dr Rena Vakay and her staff are truly the best. I have been going to the practice for many, many years and their professionalism is over the top. Long before Covid Centreville Dental Wellness has been top gold standard with office cleanliness. Dr Vakay is honest, bright, top rated and the best doctor I've had the pleasure of working with. The office is always in front of all the new technology. I can't say enough about this practice.

Kim M.

Dr Vakay is THE very best dentist ever. She is the only dentist who uses preventive dentistry rather than reactive. My teeth have never been in better condition. She measures my gums to be sure there is no change or recession every time. She also does beautiful cosmetic dentistry. I am proof!!!

Annie C.

Dr. Vakay and her assistant Christina are true artists. Their cosmetic dentistry skills are top notch. They made 5 new crowns for my upper front teeth and they look and feel beautiful and healthy. They were a pleasure to work with. When I brought to their attention that the color was a little brighter than I had anticipated, they offered to bleach my bottom teeth a second time (at no cost to me). That's true customer service.

Mary S.

I have been coming to Centreville Dental Wellness for 11 years, first to Dr. Judith Thomas and after she retired, to Dr. Jason Abel. My experience here has always been top notch and the entire office staff are professional and informed. I have had a variety of procedures and the office is good at getting me in on short notice, keeping me apprised of financial costs based on what my insurance will or will not cover, and making what could be a stressful time far less so. I highly recommend this practice across the board.

Louise M.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I have never waited more that 5 minutes to get in and seen by either the hygienist or Dr. Vakay. The teeth cleaning is the best I have ever had hands down! My teeth feel and look amazing after having a cleaning at Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

Colleen M.

Dr. Vakay's office is Very friendly, detailed and efficient with their dental care! Old school patient service that doesn't exist any more . She is a "diamond ", shiny star!

Jason Y.

I have been going to Centreville Wellness for over 20 years. First went there by chance (there was no Yelp at the time), but have continued to go based on quality of work, price and customer service. They have certainly made changes to their practice since I first started going there; all of which were good. Dr. Vakay knows whats going on and how to take care of her patients.

Rob M.

Our family has been going to this dental practice for years, even before Dr. Vakay and Dr. Abel were there. We stayed through the transition because of the wonderful care we received. Everyone of the staff with whom I have interacted have not only been great at their jobs, but cheerful, friendly and kind. I trust both doctors. They combine new technology and treatment with old-fashioned, personal care. I highly recommend the practice.
