When a tooth's damage goes beyond what a filling can repair, a dental crown may be required to restore shape, function, and strength. Dr. Bassiri approaches restorations from three angles: health, function, and beauty. With a porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crown protecting your tooth, you'll enjoy a strong, white smile, built to last.
Placing a crown requires two appointments. In your first visit, expect Dr. Bassiri to prepare your damaged tooth, make an impression, and place a temporary crown. Your new crown will be made in a dental lab to fit perfectly over the affected tooth from dental ceramic that matches your teeth coloring. During your follow-up visit, Dr. Bassiri will remove your temporary and affix the permanent crown in place. He'll then check your occlusion to make sure that your teeth come together properly. If needed, he will make adjustments to your crown before you leave our office.
If you need a dentist experienced in crowns and restorations, call Dr. Bassiri to schedule your consultation today. Our comfortable dental office serves patients from the Fairfax McLean area in Northern Virginia and the greater Washington DC Metro area. We can't wait to create and maintain your sensational smile.
