Recently experience physical tooth damage or dental decay? Dental crowns and bridges from Dr. James Hutson's Marietta office could be dental-crownsthe answer to putting your smile back on track!


How Crowns and Bridges Work

Crowns and bridges can restore your smile by filling in the gaps where teeth are missing. A dental bridge contains pontics, which are artificial teeth that fill in the gaps where natural teeth are missing. At either end of the bridge are dental crowns that hold the apparatus securely in place. Our dentist can fit you for crowns and bridges at our Marietta dental office.


Benefits of Crowns and Bridges

A primary benefit to these restoration methods is how they can completely restore your smile by replacing missing teeth and filling in the gaps that were previously left behind. Another benefit is that bridges secured with dental crowns are semi-permanent, making it so they will not slip out of place unless they are removed by a dentist. Additionally, by restoring your smile, crowns and bridges help alleviate the extra strain that was placed on the teeth previously compensating for their missing counterparts.

Restoring your smile also has the benefit of restoring the natural contours of your face. After all, missing teeth mean that there is less support for facial muscles, resulting in droopy facial features. Additionally, tooth gaps can affect your speech by causing repeated tongue slippage. Closing these gaps reduces sagging by providing additional support for facial muscles, and improves speech by correcting tongue placement.
