Dental imperfections, from cracks to chips to a tooth missing entirely, affect the look, health and function of your tooth, making it crucial to visit your dentist for repairs. Dr. James Hutson in Marietta, GA, can restore the health of your damaged smile with crowns and bridges, the comfortable and durable choice for dental repair.

What are crowns?

Dental crowns are a discreet way to fix a tooth which has fractures, chips, protrusions, voids, severe discoloration or other noticeable damage or imperfections. A crown, which is tinted, sized and shaped to fit your tooth, is cemented over the affected portion of the tooth and cured under a special light to make it permanent and strong. A dental crown protects your tooth from bacterial growth and decay, as well as from damage to the surrounding teeth. A crown will also improve your ability to bite, chew, and brush.

Crowns are discreet, blending in perfectly with your tooth so it looks natural, healthy and attractive.

What are bridges?

If you are missing a tooth entirely, or have a tooth that requires removal due to damage or decay, dental bridges offer a permanent and attractive replacement. While dentures or dental implants are a popular choice if you have multiple missing teeth, a bridge is an affordable and effective way to replace one or two teeth.

A bridge consists of an artificial tooth, sized, shaped and tinted to match the surrounding teeth, which is supported by the teeth on either side and bonded in place for a strong, effective and discreet repair.

Both crowns and bridges from our Marietta, GA, office are customized so they are natural-looking and comfortable and are crafted to last.

Bring your smile back to its best with crowns and bridges from the Marietta, GA, office of Dr. Hutson. Call us at (770) 424-7525 to learn more.
