Dental Crowns

When teeth are affected by decay or trauma, it weakens the structure of the tooth and compromises your oral health.

At Fairfax Family Dental Care, our dentists use meticulously crafted dental crowns to repair your teeth and help prevent future damage.

Emergency Dental Crowns Care When You Need It Most 

Have a broken tooth or crown that fell off? Call us right away for around-the-clock emergency dental care. Our dentists are available to restore your tooth, provide a temporary crown, and begin the process of creating your reliable restoration. If you have saved your crown, we may be able to reattach it to the tooth.

What Sets Us Apart?

Expertise

Our practice was founded in 1986 and has been providing top-tier dental work, including crowns, ever since. Our three dentists on staff provide collective knowledge and expertise not found at the typical dental office.

Welcoming Environment

We're proud to have some of the warmest, most helpful dental staff who have been with us for 15 to 20 years and love what they do. We strive to help you feel informed and supported throughout the dental crown process.

Honest Dentists

Here at Fairfax Family Dental Care, our dentists have your best interests in mind. We will never recommend a dental crown if you don't actually need one. If a dental filling or other more conservative procedure will suffice, we'll recommend that course of action first.

I discover this place for an urgency that I had on a Sunday. And it was the only place open that I found close home. Doctor Touraj Kamali was the person that take care of me, went for a broken crown that I did back in my home Country, Dr. Kamali was amassing and did a really good job. The crown, I must say looks even better that the one I had before. I’m glad I found this place, of course they are now my primary dentist.

My wife recently broke her bonding tooth. After searching quite a few places who takes a Dental emergency on Sunday Fairfax Family Dental Care happened to be one and Dr. Kamali took amazing care of her . Dr. Kamali explained the process thoroughly and suggested the best option for her which we should have done 5 years ago. And i paid less amount for Posterior crown than what i paid for bonding for her before. He is fantastic ! I will definitely recommend my friends and families ,also to anyone in need of dental work.

Am I a Candidate for a Dental Crown?

In general, those considering dental crowns must have sufficient healthy tooth structure remaining. During a consultation at our Fairfax office, our dentists can help determine if this treatment option is right for you. You may qualify for a dental crown if you have:

  • A tooth that is chipped, broken, or fractured
  • Significant dental decay
  • A weak tooth that needs reinforcement
  • Dental erosion due to bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Finished root canal treatment
  • A dental implant that needs to be restored

While crowns are a common restorative treatment option, they are also used for cosmetic purposes. Dental crowns can be used to conceal misshapen teeth or to address intrinsic stains and discoloration that don't respond to teeth whitening.

The Extraordinary Benefits of Dental Crowns

Durable

Dental crowns are designed to withstand tremendous force. They restore your ability to eat and chew without worrying about breaking or damaging your tooth. Whether you had a root canal or chipped tooth, crowns can help.

Natural-Looking

Due to advanced materials such as porcelain or zirconia used in dentistry today, crowns look and feel incredibly natural. They are crafted to blend in with your natural teeth, so no one will ever know you had dental work.

Long-Lasting

Crowns are a reliable and long-term prosthetic that provides a wealth of benefits. Dental crowns have an average lifespan of 15 years, but they can last over two decades with proper care and maintenance.

By far the best dental experience I have ever had. I dread the dentist most times, but they make visits quick, painless, and even enjoyable at times. Also, can't recommend Dr. Milan Simanek enough. Theres on specific dental assistant to who is phenomenal, but her name is escaping me. Overall great place.

The Dental Crown Treatment Timeline 

In most cases, dental crown placement can be completed in just two office visits at our Fairfax, VA, office.
We use a trusted local lab, which is just a few blocks away. This ensures a higher quality of control over the finished product.
We use a trusted local lab, which is just a few blocks away. This ensures a higher quality of control over the finished product.

Preparation

During the first appointment, your dentist will visually assess the treatment site and takes x-rays or scans to determine the severity of the problem. If he determines a crown is necessary, the next step is removing a small amount of natural enamel. This prepares your tooth for bonding and makes room for your new crown.

Impressions

Next, impressions are taken. We use traditional impressions because they are more accurate. The impressions are sent to our trusted local lab, which is just a few blocks away. This ensures a higher quality of control and allows us to provide any customizations with ease due to the close relationship we've built with them.

Fabrication

A trained technician crafts your permanent crown out of your selected material, such as porcelain, at our partner lab. Crown fabrication usually takes one to two weeks. In the meantime, a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth from any damage.

Placement

Once the dental lab finalizes your permanent crown, you'll return to our office for placement. The temporary crown is removed, and the final crown is placed onto the tooth. Our dentist checks your crown's size, shape, fit, and color before permanently bonding it in place using high-quality dental cement. Patients leave our office with a beautiful crown that is indistinguishable from their natural teeth.

Recovery and Aftercare

While you are wearing your temporary crown, it is important to avoid hard or sticky foods that could damage or dislodge your restoration. If possible, you should chew on the other side of your mouth until your final crown is bonded into place.

Immediately following your dental crown placement, you may notice slight tenderness and sensitivity. These side effects are to be expected and should diminish within the first few days. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities right away.
