They are used to restore teeth back to their natural shape and appearance, and to also strengthen teeth as well. If you are in need of a dental crowns dentist in Sterling VA, Dr. Sattar can’t wait to help you.
What are Dental Crowns?
The most common use of dental crowns is to fix broken teeth or or teeth that have deteriorated due to tooth decay. They are made of a ceramic material that is very similar to your tooth’s natural enamel which offers a very natural appearance. The dental crown is cemented over top of your existing tooth and will completely cover up the visible portion of your tooth. For less visible teeth, we also offer gold crowns that last longer.
The crowns are prepared in a dental lab by an experienced technician using a mold of your tooth taken in our office. The crown will be sculpted to fit your tooth perfectly so that it looks and feels natural without affecting your bite.
Dental crowns aren’t only used on damaged teeth. They are also used for cosmetic issues such as discolored or misshapen teeth, and teeth that are out of position. They can also be used to cover dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns have several benefits that you should be aware of:
- Cover aesthetic issues on your teeth

After examining your teeth, Dr. Sattar will make a determination of whether or not a dental crown is the appropriate treatment option for you.
