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.
