Fortunately, our Midtown, GA dentists, Dr. Laura Koch and Dr. Andrew dental crownsSoulimiotis, have the answer you’ve been looking for to get your smile back to the way it use to be. Find out more about dental crowns and bridges and what situations may warrant getting one of these restorations.

Dental Crowns

This tooth-shaped restoration is placed over the entire crown of a tooth. The purpose is to protect the tooth’s structure and to strengthen the tooth. Crowns can be made from metal amalgam or can be made from more natural, tooth-colored materials like porcelain.

Dental Bridges

A dental bridge is used to fill the gap created by your missing tooth or teeth. If you’ve lost a tooth, our Midtown cosmetic dentist may recommend getting a dental bridge. A dental bridge is secured into place using two dental crowns, which are cemented over healthy natural teeth. A dental bridge can also prevent the rest of your teeth from shifting out of place.

Why you should get restorative dentistry

A missing tooth can cause a host of other issues for your smile including teeth misalignment, jaw deterioration and facial structure changes. By choosing to get a dental bridge you can prevent these issues from happening.

Plus, having missing teeth can put quite the damper not only on your appearance but also how you feel about the way you look. If your self-esteem has taken a hit on account of missing or damaged teeth then it’s high time you considered getting dental crowns and/or a dental bridge.
