Nova Dental Center Offers Customized Dental Crowns that Transform Smiles
Teeth that sustain severe damage from an injury or decay may be too weak for a traditional dental filling. In some cases, it is impossible to repair a chipped, broken, or fractured tooth with bonding materials. At Nova Dental Care, Dr. Bing K. Hoang is transforming how major restorations are done by offering customized dental crowns that strengthen teeth and blend in perfectly with the patient’s smile.
In the past, patients often had to accept that getting a dental crown was an uncomfortable process that didn’t necessarily lead to the most aesthetically-pleasing results. However, that has all changed thanks to Dr. Hoang’s revolutionary approach to providing compassionate and effective dental care.
Dental crowns are placed directly over a patient’s remaining tooth structure to support a weakened tooth after a root canal, to repair a broken tooth, or to provide a more uniform look for misshapen or uneven teeth. Crowns are also used to provide support for other dental restorations such as a dental bridge.
Because dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials, Dr. Hoang can create a customized restoration that addresses each patient’s unique needs. Currently, Nova Dental Center offers four main types of materials for dental crowns: porcelain, ceramic, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and composite resin.
The material used is determined during the dental consultation when Dr. Hoang assesses the patient’s oral health and overall appearance of their smile. He considers factors such as the location of the tooth and its function to determine which type of material works best for the crown. The patient’s preference for the crown is also an important part of the selection process. While some people love the look of a metal crown, others prefer a more discreet restoration that blends in with the surrounding teeth. Dr. Hoang makes it his goal to give every patient a dental crown that makes them smile.
After the material is selected, the dentist prepares the tooth and takes impressions, which are sent to a professional lab that creates a customized tooth that matches the size and color of the other teeth in a person’s mouth. The crown is then carefully checked by Dr. Hoang to make sure that it has a precise fit and appearance before it is permanently placed in a patient’s mouth.
With over 15 years of experience serving the Springfield, Virginia community, Dr. Hoang provides professional dental crown services with an emphasis on personalized results. Dr. Hoang also provides dental services in Annandale, Burke, Fairfax, Falls Church, Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax Station, Lorton, and Woodbridge. With options that blend the durability of metal crowns with the aesthetics of porcelain materials, a dental restoration is an opportunity to improve the function and appearance of your smile.
