Dental crowns are strong dental restorations that are commonly used to restore a tooth and enhance a smile. Although they improve the oral health of many people quite often, they still might be a bit confusing and even a little overwhelming. This can lead to a lot of questions. So, to help you know a little more about dental crowns in Falls Church, Virginia, our dental team at Ronald Hauptman, DDS and Bahar Rowhani, DDS is happy to help you by giving you the answers to frequently asked questions.

What makes someone a good candidate for a dental crown?

Anyone who needs to restore a broken, severely decayed, chipped, or unattractive tooth is a good candidate for a dental crown. However, the tooth has to be healthy enough to support the restoration, which means the core of the tooth needs to be healthy and strong and the underlying bone needs to be in top-notch condition.

What can a dental crown do for me?

A dental crown can turn a weak, broken, decayed, discolored, oddly shaped, unhealthy, and unattractive tooth into a tooth that is functional, strong, healthy, and beautiful. It can improve your oral health and enhance your smile in many ways.

Does placing a dental crown hurt?

Because your dentist uses a numbing agent to numb the mouth before treatment, placing a dental crown does not hurt. You might feel a little bit of pressure, but you should not feel pain.
