Crowns & Bridges in Alpharetta GA
Even if you are proactive about your oral health care, problems can arise. Fortunately, modern dentistry makes it possible for us to provide numerous dental options that help restore the beauty, health, and function of your smile. At Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry, we specialize in creating restorations like crowns and bridges for teeth that have been affected by decay or other damage.
Dr. Kai Liang believes that we can provide you with the highest standard of dental care by offering cosmetic and restorative treatments that improve your oral health while they enhance the appearance of your smile.
Dental Crowns Restore Function and Beauty
We use dental crowns to protect a damaged tooth and restore it to its original size, shape, and function. The first step when placing a dental crown is to prepare your natural tooth to ensure that your crown fits comfortably and looks natural. We then take impressions that we use to create a model for your new crown. During this appointment, we’ll also fit you with a temporary crown to wear until your final crown is ready to be bonded securely to your tooth.
You may think of a dental crown as being a solution for broken or damaged teeth. But dental crowns completely surround and conceal your natural tooth, so we often use them to solve certain cosmetic problems:
- Conceal severely stained or discolored teeth
- Cover older metal fillings that have darkened
- Replace old, unattractive dental work
Dr. Kai works with the finest custom dental labs in our area that fabricate your dental crown to our specifications. When the process is finished, you will have a natural-looking restoration that exceeds your expectations!
Replace Missing Teeth with Fixed Bridges
A fixed dental bridge is designed with an artificial tooth that sits in the open space. The artificial tooth is attached to crowns on adjacent teeth for support. If you have two missing teeth in the same spot, Dr. Kai may recommend a dental implant for added stability.
When we place a bridge, Dr. Kai follows a similar process as that for placing crowns. He prepares your anchor teeth for the crowns, takes impressions, and sends all our specifications to a custom dental lab that custom crafts your restoration. When your bridge is ready, you'll return to our office, and we will cement it securely in place.
