Having a nice smile can make a big difference in our patients’ lives. Likewise, having a “bad” smile can affect them as well. We want to help everyone be happy with their smiles, which is why we offer dental crowns, dental bridges, and several other services.
Dental crowns and bridges are a great way to restore your smile and the function of your teeth. Our dentists in Marietta, GA, can show you what restorative dentistry can do, but only if you schedule a visit to our office.

What Dental Crowns Can Do For You
All of our dentists have the knowledge, training, and skills to restore the appearance of your teeth with dental crowns.
We want nothing more than to give you a smile that is as good or better than it’s ever been. Dental crowns can help make that happen.
Typically, dental crowns are used to repair or fix individual teeth. Here are some common issues that we can address with dental crowns:
▪︎ Broken or chipped teeth
▪︎ Worn down teeth
▪︎ Misshapen teeth
▪︎ Cracked teeth
▪︎ Discolored teeth
▪︎ Decayed teeth
All of these issues can be fixed with a dental crown. Each crown is designed to look as natural as possible. When your permanent crown is placed, most people won’t be able to tell which is your “artificial” tooth.
For all practical purposes, your dental crown will feel and function like the rest of your teeth.
Getting a dental crown involves a few simple steps. First, your tooth is prepared to receive a dental crown. The prep work involves removing the decayed, discolored, or damaged parts of your tooth. What remains are the strongest, healthiest parts of your tooth to serve as an abutment to support the crown.
When your dental crown is ready, it is bonded to your tooth. The result is a complete smile and a fully functioning set of teeth.
You may need to wear a temporary crown for a short time until your permanent crown is ready. It won’t take long until your smile is back!
Call 770-744-4619 if you would like to get a dental crown at Atlanta West Dentistry.
Dental Bridges Are More Than The Sum Of Their Parts
Dental bridges have a more specific purpose. They are used to fill in gaps created by missing teeth.
Losing a tooth or teeth can have a bigger impact on your life than just changing your smile. Emotionally, it can affect your self-confidence. Physically, it can make it more difficult to eat.
And if you don’t replace what you have lost, then you may be increasing your likelihood of losing more teeth.
The staff at Atlanta West Dentistry wants you to feel good about your smile, to be able to eat comfortably and to keep all the teeth that you have left.
Dental bridges are created by fusing two or more dental crowns together. Since they are made of the same materials as our dental crowns, you can count on your dental bridge looking natural when it is added to your smile.
Traditional bridges are made by reshaping the teeth on either side of the gap in your smile. This is similar to how teeth are reshaped for dental crowns. Those teeth will support the abutment crowns, which are on either end of your dental bridge. This provides the support to keep your bridge in place.

Another Way To Support Dental Crowns, Bridges
Traditional bridges have a long history as an effective way of replacing missing teeth.
In modern dentistry, however, we can use dental implants as a newer and better kind of support.
Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth. A dental crown can be placed on a single implant to replace a single tooth. Dental implants can also be used to support a dental bridge if you need to replace two or more teeth.
With dental implants, you won’t have to reshape any healthy teeth to secure your dental bridge in place.
