Could your teeth benefit from dental crowns? Crowns, offered by your South Atlanta, GA, dentist, Dr. Travon Holt of Dentistry at Camp Creek, can help you renew, repair, or protect your smile.

How dental crowns work

Crowns slide over the tops of teeth, covering them on all four sides. Although the restorations are hollow inside, your dentist will need to make your teeth a little smaller before adding crowns. The restorations are cemented onto teeth and become a permanent part of your smile.

Although it used to take about two weeks for dental laboratories to complete a crown, CEREC crowns make it possible to eliminate the wait. The same-day crowns are created in the South Atlanta dental office in about an hour.

The advantages of crowns

Multipurpose crowns can:

  • Improve Your Appearance: A crown offers an excellent solution if you're unhappy with the way a tooth looks. Adding a crown can completely transform your tooth, making crooked or oddly shaped teeth look straight and uniform. Crowns can also be used to hide discolorations and other imperfections.
  • Straighten Short Teeth: Teeth can shorten due to wear and tear or grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep. In addition to affecting your appearance, short teeth may also change your bite. Crowns offer a simple way to lengthen your teeth.
  • Prevent Fragile Teeth from Breaking: Once a tooth becomes fragile, it's more likely to break. Crowns protect teeth that have weakened due to trauma, wear and tear, cracks, or dental procedures.
  • Treat Broken Teeth: Whether your tooth broke as a result of an accident or a crack, you're probably eager to restore your normal appearance. Your crown is made from an impression of your mouth to ensure that your restoration looks just like your broken tooth.
  • Replace Missing Teeth: Crowns can be attached to dental implants to completely restore lost teeth. Implants are titanium posts that bond to your jawbone and serve as the roots of your new teeth. Crowns are also used to secure dental bridges, restorations that replace one or two missing teeth.

Improve your smile with dental crowns! Call your dentist in South Atlanta, GA, Dr. Travon Holt of Dentistry at Camp Creek, at (404) 629-9290 to schedule your appointment.

Get the inside scoop on the pros and cons of getting dentures.

There are millions of Americans out there right now who are missing one or more permanent teeth. Are you one of them? If so, our South Atlanta, GA, dentists Dr. Travon Holt and Dr. Lola Oh can help you regain a complete smile again. To preserve your oral health and to prevent further complications, you may want to consider getting dentures.

What are dentures?

Dentures are a set of false teeth and artificial gums that are made to fit your mouth based on measurements taken by our South Atlanta, GA, dentist. Custom dentures ensure that they offer you the best fit possible once they are placed. Dentures are also made from the highest-quality material to ensure not only durability but also a lifelike quality. No one needs to know that you have dentures and our dentists will work with you to create the perfect set of false teeth to fit your mouth and meet personal needs.

The two main types of dentures are partial and full, and the type that is right for you will depend on how many teeth are missing. If you have a few healthy teeth left then partial dentures will be ideal for you, while complete dentures are used to replace all upper and/or lower teeth.

What can dentures offer me?

Not only will dentures give you back a full set of teeth but they can also support the cheeks and overall facial structure after tooth loss. Dentures can make chewing, biting and talking easier. No matter how many teeth you are missing, dentures provide an easy and inexpensive solution for getting a beautiful smile back.

Will dentures feel like real teeth?

It’s natural for a new dental restoration to feel a little strange. It’s important to be patient with your new teeth, as it can take a little time to get used to speaking or chewing with your dentures. It’s also normal for gums to feel a bit sore for the first few weeks. Of course, denture should not feel loose. If you experience slipping or loose dentures you should come back into our office for an adjustment.

Patients with a healthy jawbone who wish to improve the feel and functionality of their pre-existing dentures may choose to get dental implants. These metal posts are placed within the jawbone to hold your dentures in place, which can prevent false teeth from moving around while also greatly improving chewing and normal speech.

Whether you are interested in getting dentures or dental implants, turn to the dental team at Dentistry at Camp Creek in South Atlanta, GA, to find out the best tooth replacement option for you. Call us today at (404) 629-9290.
