What is a Dental Crown

A crown is a type of dental procedure in which a cap that encircles the tooth/dental implant is placed on the tooth. Crowns are bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.

Crowns are not primarily cosmetic procedures and are usually done to protect the tooth. Crowns are often used to improve the strength of the tooth and also the appearance. Crowns are also used when restoring on a dental implant to provide a tooth-like shape and restore function.

What are our Crowns made of?
Crowns can be made from many different types of materials: i.e porcelain or gold .

Dr. Le uses porcelain (tooth colored crown) because they resemble your natural teeth.  Porcelain crowns have good aesthetic properties and are cast to fit the impression taken already by our dentist. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.  Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Getting Dental Crowns at My Fairfax Dental
Before any dental treatment,  there is a consultation with Dr. Le to outline the exact procedure. A crown procedure usually requires two appointments.

  1. Preparation: During your initial appointment Dr. Le will prepare the tooth to be crowned by removing any decay and shaping the tooth for the Crown. Then we will take custom impressions of your tooth to ensure a perfect fit. This custom impression is used to then prepare the temporary Crown which will protect the prepared tooth and allow you to have no interruptions while the final crown is specially made.
  2. Delivery: During your second appointment Dr. Le will remove the temporary crown and clean tooth before your new crown will be carefully placed and cemented firmly to ensure the spacing and bite are accurate.

After Getting Dental Crowns
Dental Crowns can last for years if the patient maintains it. Immediately after your Dental Crown has been placed, there may be some getting used to your new Crown. We recommend that patients avoid sticky foods and chewing gum for the first day.


Crowns should be treated same way as natural teeth and patients should brush and clean their teeth at least twice a day and make regular dental visits.
