If you have a broken tooth, a crown could be the solution you need. Dental crowns are tooth-like caps that fit over existing teeth. Crowns can make broken teeth whole again and protect them from further damage. Crowns also strengthen teeth and restore normal biting and chewing functions. In McLean, VA, crowns are available at McLean Dental Care, where Dr. Cecilia Gyllenhoff and Dr. Samuel Cappiello can repair your broken teeth.

How Crowns Help

A crown fits over a broken tooth like a shell or cap. Once in place, the tooth is completely encased inside. Broken areas will no longer be visible. The crown gives the tooth a flawless new look and serves as the tooth’s new exterior. With the crown in place, the tooth will be strong enough to resume normal biting and chewing functions that might have been difficult to perform when the tooth was broken. The crown also protects the tooth from sustaining further damage.

Crowns are custom-made to ensure the perfect size, shape, and fit. Various materials can be used to make crowns, but porcelain or ceramic are popular choices because they closely resemble the look of natural tooth enamel. Porcelain and ceramic crowns readily blend in with the rest of your smile so no one will be able to tell they aren’t your original teeth. Our experienced dentists can repair your broken teeth with custom crowns at our McLean, VA, dental office.

Benefits of Crowns

Repairing broken teeth with crowns offers numerous benefits. Some key benefits include:

  • Fixing broken teeth
  • Strengthening broken or weak teeth
  • Protecting against additional damage
  • Restoring biting and chewing functions
  • Custom made for a perfect fit
  • Look like natural teeth
  • Last for several years

Another benefit of crowns is that they also improve the appearance of broken teeth by giving them a flawless new exterior. Crowns can conceal a diverse range of cosmetic issues. They can be used to improve the appearance of teeth with cracks, chipped areas, and stains or discolorations. Crowns can also improve the look of teeth that are slightly crooked or misshaped.

Crowns can strengthen, protect and repair broken teeth, as well as improve their appearance. For crowns in McLean, VA, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gyllenhoff or Dr. Cappiello by calling McLean Dental Care at (703) 734-0100.
