Dental Crowns and Bridges In Atlanta
If you are looking for dental crowns and bridges in Atlanta, you have come to the right place. Dr. Kelle Dennis and her team at Peach Valley Dental are experts in these procedures. We are pleased to offer a variety of restorative dental services to our patients. Peach Valley Dental offers affordable crowns and bridges that will give you full function and a healthy-looking smile.
Sometimes referred to as “caps,” dental crowns are prosthetic, tooth-shaped coverings that restore function and aesthetics to missing or damaged teeth. If you have any of the following conditions, a crown may be a great option:
- A heavily damaged tooth that is still structurally sound
- A tooth that also needs a root canal treatment that cannot be sealed properly with a filling
- A broken tooth
- A tooth that has sustained heavy wear
- A missing tooth that requires a dental bridge
Additionally, if you have a missing tooth—or if you are in need of a tooth extraction—and you wish to have a dental implant placed, we will place a crown on the implant to complete that process. From an aesthetic perspective, crowns are indistinguishable from natural teeth. They can protect a weak tooth or a damaged tooth so you can avoid an extraction and maintain full function. They also maintain proper spacing in your mouth, which prevents neighboring teeth from shifting.
As their name implies, dental bridges span the gap left by a missing tooth. Bridges require two crowns—one on either side of the missing tooth—with a prosthetic piece that stands in for that missing tooth. The bridge is one solid unit that looks like three individual, natural teeth.
Like crowns, bridges also keep neighboring teeth in place. Not only is this beneficial in maintaining spacing, but it keeps your bite aligned properly. Without this, teeth grinding, jaw pain, and headaches become more likely.
Dental Bridge vs Implants
We often get questions from patients regarding their options for replacing missing teeth. Bridges and implants are the most common solutions. Both offer benefits such as a natural look and restoring teeth function.
Dental implants can replace individual missing teeth without requiring additional dental work to the neighboring teeth. Bridges, however, can be a little more affordable than implants. If you have questions regarding either of these options, ask us at your next appointment or schedule a consultation so we can better assess your specific needs.
Regardless of whether you need a crown or a bridge, we have the ability to make your prosthetic look like the rest of your natural teeth. We are able to precisely color-match the final product so you can maintain a great-looking smile.
