Dental crowns at Chantilly Dental & Implant Center
Dental crowns are very common dental restorations. When a tooth has suffered large or deep cavities crowns are often used to preserve and reinforce the tooth. This allows you to preserve your natural tooth and protect it against further decay and cracking.
We do believe that preserving our own teeth serves best for our patient’s interest. Whenever possible, we recommend our patients to keep their own teeth. Only when the teeth are not restorable or not worth keeping in regards with patient’s oral health we recommend extraction.
All ceramic crowns
The modern crowns offered at Chantilly Dental Center is metal-free and look incredibly natural. Since we use only 100% ceramic crowns, you can be assured of an excellent, beautiful smile as well as it proven biocompatibility. No allergies or inflammatory response from our crowns can occur for the material reason.
Quality assured – all manufactured in our in-house lab
We don’t outsource our laboratory work to an overseas dental lab. It is our belief all the restorations must be manufactured under entrusted quality control because it is very difficult to directly evaluate work process and materials in outsourced labs.
Most dental offices prescribe their lab work to a dental laboratory and the lab fabricates the restorations. Thus communication between the dental office and the dental lab is crucial to get the desired restoration. Failure to communicate often results in re-make or modification of the restoration, which causes loss in time and money.
All of our crowns are digitally manufactured from our cad-cam milling system in our lab with utmost accuracy and precision, so you don’t have to worry about the fit of your restoration. To ensure production of dental crowns of high quality, all cases are carefully fabricated by our experienced technicians with scrutiny and are constantly discussed with Dr. Koh. Our state-of-the-art digital office, on-site lab technician, and advanced milling machine can provide you with expedited service when necessary.
As mentioned, we do not send out to an offsite laboratory for crown fabrication. Rather, our in-house lab team crafts these restorations onsite, communicating with you face to face so that we can offer you highly customized crowns or veneers. For example, shade information about your crown cannot be transferred from patient to the dental technician with 100% accuracy no matter how hard the dentist try with prescriptions. We try to minimize these shortcomings with face to face communication between the patient and the technician.
All of our crown patients will have their own custom shades from our technicians. Cookie-cuttered shade guides are used only for a reference purpose, not as the only shade information that a doctor prescribes to a technician. Our ceramist will see you directly for the customized shape, size and color of your crown.
We guarantee your satisfaction for your restorations.
