Dental Crowns Marietta, GA

Given their versatility, dental crowns are used by dentists for a variety of reasons. Contrary to a dental filling, a dental crown encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that sits above the gum line, akin to a “cap.” To better understand why a dental crown might be needed, consider the following.

When a tooth has been weakened by decay, a dental crown provides much needed support, preventing the tooth from breaking or chipping. Similarly, if a tooth is already broken, misshapen or discolored, a crown can restore its structure and appearance. In another case, if a tooth has received a large dental filling, and very little of the tooth’s natural structure is left, a crown can provide added support. Dental crowns also serve as anchors for dental bridges, and are used regularly to cover dental implants. Without question, there is great value in dental crowns, as both a functional and cosmetic restoration.

What Are Dental Crowns Made Of?

As with dental fillings and other restorations, permanent dental crowns can be made from stainless steel, gold, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin or ceramic (WebMD).

In most cases, a stainless steel crown is more of a temporary measure needed to protect a tooth while a permanent crown is being fabricated. The final crown, depending on where it is located in the mouth, will likely be comprised of some type of base-metal alloy if the crown is being placed on a molar. Otherwise, porcelain-fused-to-metal is a more favorable choice if a patient is concerned that their tooth will be visible when they talk, laugh or smile. In other words, this type of crown material can be placed on front or back teeth, and blends well with one’s natural tooth color. The same is true for all-ceramic and all-porcelain varieties.

When it comes to dental crowns, the good news is that they have a long lifespan (5-15 years), especially when patients remain committed to good oral hygiene and regular visits with an experienced dentist.

  • Kim P.

    Dr Patel answered my call for practically in the middle of the night. He came and had no other appointments for the day! Just to help me. The facility was immaculate and him and his hygienist were so helpful. I wish I remembered her name. It had been a while since I had been to the dentist and they never made me feel judged. Great team of people. If you are looking for a dentist give Dr. P and his team a try you won't be disappointed! See u in 2 weeks Dr. P.!i

  • Lisa O.

    Hands down the best dentist I have found. I took all three of my kids and myself. This is a welcoming, child-friendly team. It is readily apparent how well this team works together to make every patient, no matter what age, feel comfortable. I appreciate these people so much. Thank you for being such an outstanding dentist team, Pure Smiles!

  • Carmelita Ch.-H.

    Doctor/Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Always make sure you feel comfortable. Pam is an excellent Hygienist. Office space is always clean and tidy. I would recommend this office as we have been going there for the past 12 years.

  • Hudson H.

    I usually HATE the dentist! I saw all these good reviews and was a bit skeptical, but after visiting this office I now know they’re all legit. Pure Smiles made me feel comfortable and was very considerate to me. I normally leave the dentist angry, this time however I was so pleased! Everyone was empathetic and went over and beyond to help me. Everything from scheduling to payment options, they cared. I actually want to floss now.

  • Michelle P.

    I only have positive things to say about Dr.Patel and the staff at Pure Smiles in Marietta. I was in bad shape with a wisdom tooth that needed to be removed. I was seen the same morning that I called, and everything was finished in under an hour. I received a check-up call that afternoon, which I felt was very thoughtful. I went back for an overall exam the following week, and I left their office feeling great about my future dental health. Do not hesitate to call Pure Smiles. The staff is kind, efficient, and up-to-date on dental advances.

  • Kashni S.
