At Rebol Family Dentistry, we can help restore your smile following dental damage. Dental damages like chips and cracks can severely impact the effectiveness of your smile when performing daily tasks like chewing and speaking. Additionally, if allowed to get worse, they can lead to tooth loss.
Dental damages should be restored promptly to avoid further complications. We do not want to see our patients lose a tooth if at all possible. This is why we offer dental crowns to functionally and cosmetically replace a damaged tooth without requiring the need for a tooth extraction. Learn more about dental crowns below.
Dental Crowns in Asheville, NC
Dr. Rebol and Dr. Sparks are your experienced restorative dentists in Asheville, NC. If you have experienced extensive dental damage, they can help restore your smile with dental crowns.
Dental crowns allow our doctors to restore a severely broken tooth without the need for a complete tooth extraction. Instead of removing the damaged tooth, our doctors will shave it down to a foundational core that is strong enough to support a dental crown. This means that patients can have a completely restored tooth that still has tooth-root functionality.
Dental crowns may require two visits to our Asheville, NC dentist office. However, we also offer CEREC same-day dental crowns when applicable. During the dental crown procedure, the dentist shaves down the entire exterior of your damaged tooth to its foundational core. Similar to how porcelain veneers are designed to replace the front-facing portion of your tooth, a dental crown is designed to replace the entire exterior of your tooth.
Our dental crowns are designed custom to your smile using digital impressions. When the dental crown is permanently secured to the foundational core of your natural tooth, you should not be able to notice a difference between the restored tooth and your other natural teeth.
The Uses of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns treat a wide variety of cosmetic and restorative dental conditions. They’re one of the most useful tools a dentist has at their disposal. Cosmetically, they cover the entire tooth. Discolored teeth that don’t respond to traditional whitening techniques can be covered by a custom dental crown. It’s color-matched to the rest of your smile. Dental crowns also cover misshapen or defective teeth, restoring both aesthetics and functionality.
Crowns treat many restorative concerns, too. We preserve your natural tooth structure whenever possible. Crowns keep pieces of a tooth together after severe trauma or decay. You keep your natural tooth structure and don’t have to deal with the consequences of missing your tooth root.
We use crowns to restore the stability of a tooth after a root canal. We clean out the interior of your tooth and fill it with a biocompatible material before sealing it off. However, the dentist makes sure that you get back the full functionality of your tooth. A crown provides this functionality and prevents further decay from occurring in the tooth.
A dental crown is the most popular final restoration for a dental implant. A single implant requires just one dental crown. With multiple implants, individual crowns create a unique tooth for the top of each one. Implants topped with crowns both look and feel like natural teeth.
Do Dental Crowns Hurt?
We will ensure that you do not experience any pain or discomfort during the dental crown procedure. We utilize a local anesthetic to numb the affected tooth during the procedure. If you are nervous about this dental procedure due to dental anxiety, talk to our dentists about your other sedation dentistry options.
