If you’re experiencing a severely damaged or lost tooth, you’re unable to enjoy the full function and vitality of your smile. Here at White Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, our crown and bridge services replenish the durability and seamless beauty you sorely miss after dental damage occurs. Our doctors are happy to help patients who’d like to replace cracked, metal restorations with all-ceramic, aesthetically minded alternatives that look as good as they feel. Our Goode dental team looks forward to welcoming you!
As much as we would like it to, a cracked or severely worn tooth can’t heal itself naturally. With a customized dental crown from our Goode, VA practice, patients strengthen and revitalize a hurting tooth, restoring it to its former glory. Dental crowns can also be used as finishing touches for root canal treatment and dental implants, as well as to correct purely cosmetic issues such as misshapen teeth.
The creation and placement of a dental crown usually requires two appointments. Once we’ve determined that a crown is the right choice for your smile, Dr. White will carefully prepare the tooth and take impressions. A temporary crown will be custom created and worn so your confidence and complete smile isn’t disrupted while we wait for your permanent restoration from the lab. Once we’ve received your customized crown, we’ll call you back to place it snugly over the tooth and ensure that it’s comfortable and secure.
The material your crown will be crafted from depends on its location in the mouth and the amount of stress it endures on a daily basis. Drs. Julia and Brandon White are happy to offer all-ceramic, tooth-colored options so patients enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
