How crowns and bridges from your dentist in Atlanta, GA, can rebuild your smile!

Have you been plagued by damaged or missing teeth? If so, it’s time for you to discover the importance of crowns and bridges! Dr. Travon dental-crownsHolt at Midtown Dental Studio in Midtown Atlanta, GA, offers these restorations, along with a wide variety of other dental services, to give you back a beautiful smile!


What Are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are the answer to rebuilding and restoring damaged teeth. Whether your teeth have become damaged through tooth decay, dental trauma, general wear-and-tear, or aging, these restorations can help!

Crowns can also improve the look of your smile, especially if you have a mouth full of metal fillings. This is because modern crown materials, like porcelain, look just like natural teeth. Additionally, crowns provide important dental protection by covering the entire visible surface of a tooth above the gumline.

You can choose from a variety of materials for your crown, but these are the most popular:

  • Full porcelain, which is light-reflective and looks just like natural tooth enamel; these crowns are a great choice for front teeth.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal, which combines the beauty of porcelain with the strength of a metal underlay; these crowns provide excellent protection for back teeth where more strength is needed for chewing.


What Are Dental Bridges?

If your smile is suffering because of missing teeth, a dental bridge is the perfect choice to fill in the spaces and restore your chewing function. Bridges are fixed in place to become a permanent part of your smile. This means you never have to remove them as you would partials.

Dental bridges consist of lifelike prosthetic teeth, known as pontics, combined with a resin and metal framework which is supported by the adjacent teeth.
