Your smile is your best asset; it is the first thing people see and is always what they remember about you. If your teeth are discolored, decayed, cracked or chipped, not only is this very painful, but damaged teeth are also unattractive and don’t reveal your natural smile. If damaged teeth can be saved and don’t need to be pulled, the best solution is to strengthen and support the structure of those teeth with a dental crown. This will restore the integrity of the tooth again. You should be happy to know dental crowns are readily available at the office of Dr. Wendy Willoughby, DDS.
By using a professionally fitted, custom-made crown to cover and protect the damaged tooth, you will save that tooth from complete decay and having to be pulled. There are times when it is impossible to save a tooth, but if the dentist is able to perform a root canal and repair your original tooth, a crown is the best solution for restoring your radiant smile.
How is a Dental Crown Made?
Crowns are unique, individually crafted, “false teeth” made from a mold that our dentist makes. Once you and our dentist have decided to go ahead with the molding and crown, it will be sent away so that the finished crown can be created.
Crowns come in solid silver metal or gold partial metal covered with porcelain or solid porcelain, and they are priced accordingly. Their value is immeasurable when you consider that the tooth and your smile will be saved. Replacing instead of extracting a damaged tooth provides many benefits.
Crowns offer incredible cosmetic and oral health benefits. Here are some of the many benefits of getting a crown:
- It will match all of your teeth in terms of shape, size, tone, and texture for a complete smile again.
- Your radiant smile will be restored for many years, even decades.
- You will be able to eat whatever you want again with no pain.
- It will strengthen a weak tooth or a tooth that has had root canal surgery and prevent it from further damage.
It is important that you use an established and experienced dentist when getting a crown to ensure that they match and are properly fitted. You can always turn to Dr. Wendy Willoughby, DDS and her team in Asheville. Contact our office today to set up a dental appointment and get started!
