Crowns and bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that can cover, restore and protect your existing teeth or attached to dental implants as replacement teeth. At East Cobb Family Dentistry, we offer porcelain and traditional crowns and bridges.
Sometimes, teeth become weak, severely worn down or damaged, broken or cracked. In order to restore your tooth, we can cover it with a dental crown that is the same size, shape, and even color and strength of your former tooth.
We have a variety of materials that are used to create these high-quality restorations. The process of restoring your tooth with a crown or bridge typically takes two appointments.
If you have missing teeth and want an affordable way to replace them, you may be a good candidate for a dental bridge. Dental bridges are fixed porcelain restorations that are permanently joined in a row and can either be supported by natural teeth with crowns or by dental implants. Dental bridges look and feel like natural teeth.
How we build your bridge depends on how many missing teeth you have and want to replace. It also depends on the location of the missing teeth, as well as the size and length of the roots, and the amount of bone support each anchor needs. The process of replacing your missing teeth with a dental bridge takes at least two appointments.
