General and cosmetic dentists near Atlanta, GA both use restorations such as crowns and bridges for repairing the smile. Both are made of porcelain and are fabricated specifically for a patient’s needs and desires.
Dental crowns have been used for many years, even decades, to cover up teeth that have been damaged or greatly affected by tooth decay. Dental crowns are made of porcelain which is a ceramic material that closely resembles the natural appearance of tooth enamel. By using a material that is so similar, the dentist can repair the smile and do so in a way that looks beautiful and aesthetic. Dental crowns have also been used for restoring dental implants or for creating dental bridges.
Dental bridges are porcelain restorations that are used within a smile to repair areas where tooth loss has occurred. These restorations utilize the surrounding teeth as support. The bridge is bonded over these teeth to allow a false tooth to float closely about the gum line to act as a replacement and restore function and beauty to the dentl arch. Dental bridges are a wonderful alternative to dental implants and dentures.
