At Nellysford Dental, Dr. Jennifer Rice and Dr. James Rice are pleased to offer crowns for our patients in Nellysford, Virginia and the neighboring communities. Why might you need a dental crown or tooth-shaped cap?

Probably the most common reason our patients require a dental crown is to restore a tooth which has been damaged or decayed. A crown allows you to keep your natural tooth as it fits over the tooth from the gum line on up, by capping it, or encasing it so that it looks and functions just like the rest of your teeth.

Our dental crowns offer your smile many benefits, including protecting and strengthening a weakened tooth, repairing cracked or fractured teeth, can provide support where a dental filling is large, and crowns can restore a tooth when a veneer can’t. Best of all, with proper care, our dental crowns can last many years.

While dental crowns can be made of various strong materials, we are pleased to offer porcelain dental crowns for our patients as well. These provide the best color match of any other material and are perfect for those who may have allergies to metals. These crowns are also ideal for blending in the front of your smile.
