Dental Implants in Asheville
Today, dental implants are the ideal solution for replacing gaps in a patient’s smile. They replicate the entire structure of the patient’s missing tooth, including both the visible crown and the root that’s hidden under the gum tissue. By mimicking nature’s original design in this way, patients can enjoy both health and cosmetic benefits that exceed expectations. Contact the dental office of Dr. John White today to schedule an implant consultation, or if you have any questions our team can help you with questions about the procedure. We’re located here in Asheville, NC, and patients from Hickory to Waynesville are always welcomed.
The Dental Implant Process
Once our team has determined that you’re an ideal candidate for dental implants, we’ll first need to place the actual implants into the jawbone. While several doctors have to refer their patients to outside specialists for this procedure, Dr. White can personally perform it right here in the office, allowing you to stay in an environment where you already feel comfortable and right at home with a team you trust. Once placed, the implants will form a strong bond with your natural tissue over a period of healing, creating a foundation where restorations can be successfully attached.
Cost of Dental Implants
Dental implants allow you to make a lifelong investment in your oral health and your quality of life. Although they can be costly upfront, they are more affordable long-term. When determining how much you can expect to pay, there are several factors you must consider, such as how many teeth you are replacing and the materials that are used. To help pay for the treatment, you can use your dental insurance and CareCredit. During your consultation, we provide you with an estimate based on your treatment plan and discuss your payment options.
Dental Implant Restorations
Our recommendations for your implant restoration will depend on your budget, your current state of oral health, the number of teeth that are in need of restoration, and other factors that are personal to each patient. In cases of single teeth, a metal-free, all-zirconia dental crown can provide beautiful coverage and strength without requiring patients to sacrifice the health of surrounding teeth. When several teeth are in need of restoration, an implant-retained bridge or removable “overdenture” is the more cost-effective option, restoring multiple implants at once in a way that feel stable and confident. Dr. White will work with you to determine the best option for your unique smile and goals!
