Our team welcomes new patients from Fletcher, NC and surrounding areas.
A dental crown is designed to cover the visible white surface of an individual tooth, preserving its natural structure while also rebuilding it. Crowns can be crafted from several materials, and Dr. White will help you determine which one best fits your personal needs. Our office is proud to offer metal-free zirconia crowns as a solution that’s both aesthetically pleasing and seamlessly lifelike.
Patients may benefit from a new crown for a wide variety of reasons, including:
- A tooth is badly decayed to the point that a tooth-colored filling can’t adequately treat it.
- A tooth has been significantly damaged and is in need of additional support.
- A tooth is suffering from severe cosmetic flaws that need correction.
- A single dental implant is in need of restoration.
- A tooth treated with root canal therapy is in need of restoration.
- The patient has lost one or more teeth in a row and is in need of a dental bridge, which consists of multiple crowns anchored together as a sturdy replacement.
The restoration process typically requires two to three appointments at our Asheville practice. First, Dr. White will carefully prepare the tooth or teeth in question and take detailed impressions, sending this information along to a trusted dental laboratory. In the meantime, he’ll place a temporary crown in order to protect the tooth and ensure that any disruption to your daily routine in the interim is kept at a minimum. Once we receive the finished product, patients will return to our office so that we can cement it in place and make any final adjustments.
