How your dentist in Arlington, VA can help your smile

If you are suffering from broken teeth and a broken smile, your smile can be restored with dental crowns! Dental crowns are the go-to dental crownssolution to strengthen teeth weakened by decay or damage. Dr. Mary Gregory, your dentist in Arlington, VA wants to help you discover the magic of dental crowns and how they strengthen damaged teeth.

Modern dental crowns are made of strong materials that are also cosmetically beautiful. When you choose dental crowns you will experience both the strength and natural-looking beauty of dental crowns.

Unlike huge, bulky metal fillings which can weaken your tooth structurally, dental crowns encase the entire visible portion of your tooth, protecting it like a suit of armor. Dental crowns help to shield your teeth from severe biting forces when you chew.

Your dentist in Arlington can replace your old, broken down metal fillings with dental crowns to provide a stronger, more naturally-beautiful smile. You want people to notice your smile, not your fillings!

There are several different dental crown materials to choose from. Consider:

  • A full gold crown--which is a strong crown material usually reserved for back teeth where you need biting strength
  • A porcelain-fused-to-metal crown--also called a PFM crown, which combines both strength and beauty; this crown is perfect for any location in your mouth.
  • A full porcelain crown--which is the most natural-looking crown because it reflects light, just like your natural teeth; these crowns are typically placed on teeth that are visible when you smile.

You deserve to eat the foods you love without worry. You also deserve a smile you can be proud of, a smile that gives you confidence and enhances your life. Dental crowns can provide you with a lifetime of smiles. Don’t wait when it comes to your smile. Contact Dr. Gregory, your dentist in Arlington, VA, and strengthen your damaged teeth with dental crowns. Call today and get started on your great smile!
