We are proud to offer dental crowns at the dental practice of Dr. Alan J. White, D.D.S. to help you restore your tooth’s size, strength, and shape.
A dental crown in Staunton, Virginia, is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the entire visible portion of your tooth, improves its appearance, and restores its health. It also has the ability to:
- Protect a fragile tooth from breaking
- Restore a broken tooth
- Rejuvenate a tooth that has been worn down
- Support a tooth that has a large filling
- Make a cosmetic alteration
- Cover a dental implant
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Disguise a severely discolored tooth
If you are interested in utilizing a dental crown, we are able to place the restoration within one day! Thanks to our CEREC® machine, your tooth will be restored within one visit at our office. The process of placing the crown will first begin with your dentist numbing the tooth and surrounding area with a local anesthetic. When your mouth is numb, he will shave the surfaces of your tooth to allow room for the crown. Your dentist will then take any measurements needed to create your crown with our CEREC® machine. When your crown is ready, he will check the produce and make any needed adjustments to make it fit perfectly with your bite and smile. When he finds the perfect placement, the crown will be permanently cemented to the tooth.
