Dental Crowns – West Cobb and Marietta, GA

If you have missing, damaged, broken, or decayed teeth, we’re ready to help! Leading Edge Dentistry provides custom-made dental crowns in West Cobb with various options to ensure satisfaction for his patients. We also offers dental bridges for patients who are missing multiple teeth consecutively. Both of these restorations not only improve appearance, but they also positively impact oral health. Keep reading to learn more about these treatment options.

What is a Dental Crown?

Dental crowns offer cosmetic and restorative correction for patients with extensive dental damage, decay, or cosmetic flaws. Repairing smile irregularities with dental crowns in Marietta protects surrounding teeth from damage and keeps the pressure on teeth even to prevent strain. This versatile restoration option is used in a number of situations, including:

  • To repair severely decayed or damaged teeth
  •  As the finishing touch to protect teeth treated with root canal therapy
  •  As part of single tooth implant supported tooth replacement
  •  To support fixed bridge tooth replacement

The entire process is completed over the course of two short appointments. During the first visit, we prepare patients’ teeth and capture dental impressions. The impressions are taken by a trusted dental lab, where the custom crown is designed and crafted. In the meantime, we place a temporary crown to protect the prepared tooth. When patients return for a second appointment, we exchange the temporary for a custom dental crown.

What Are the Different Types of Crowns?

The team has years of training and experience offering high quality dental crowns crafted from a variety of materials, including porcelain bonded to metal, and lifelike ceramic.


In most cases, we recommend all-ceramic restorations, as they provide superior cosmetic results to match their durability. These restorations seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile to create beautiful results. All ceramic dental crowns are made from a single block of porcelain, delivering our patients a crown that matches the size, shape, and shade of your natural smile.

Porcelain Fused to Metal

In some cases, we may recommend porcelain fused to metal crowns. When we use metal, the bonding is strengthened because it usually offers a better fit than all-porcelain crowns. As an added bonus, this option is typically more cost effective.

The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are one of our most popular restorations because of these unique advantages:

  •  Customization: Dental crowns are personalized to match the exact color, size, and feeling of your natural smile.
  •  Confidence: Crowns can correct discolored, misshapen, chipped, or cracked teeth to give patients boosted confidence and self-esteem.
  •  Oral health: Patients can enjoy better oral health overall because their damaged or decayed tooth will now have protection with a dental crown.
  •  Longevity: With proper care like brushing, flossing, and regular visits to our office, you can enjoy your dental crown for years to come.

What is a Dental Bridge?

If you’ve lost one to three consecutive teeth due to decay, gum disease, or facial trauma, a dental crown supported fixed bridge offers comfortable tooth replacement that looks and feels natural. A fixed bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth that are connected to two surrounding dental crowns. The dental crowns are cemented in place over healthy teeth on either side of the gap, supporting the restoration.

The Benefits of Dental Bridges

We offer dental bridges because of the many benefits they give our patients, including:

  •  Durability: Once placed, patients can enjoy a strong and stable smile thanks to their dental bridge.
  •  Comfort: Because dental bridges are fixed, patients won’t have to worry about a denture slipping and sliding around.
  •  Appearance: Dental bridges are custom made to look, feel, and function like your natural smile.
  •  Convenience: Dental bridges can usually be placed in just 2 appointments, allowing patients to receive a complete smile as quickly as possible.
  •  Stability: With dental crowns on either side of the bridge for support, you can feel confident in a stable smile.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This office is amazing! When I arrive for my hygiene visits, the front staff is always very friendly! I don’t have to wait long for the hygienist to bring me back and throughout the visit she explains each step. The doctor is very thorough in reviewing the recommended treatment. When I had to have treatment completed- the doctor explained each step of the procedure. The numbing injection was painless and they made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure. My whole family (including my 2 kids) does not mind visiting the dentist anymore. Dr. Howard and his team are wonderful!

I have been a patient for 25+ years. Dr. Howard and his staff are wonderful. He makes sure that any procedure is painless. I recently had some cosmetic dentistry work performed and could not be more pleased with the results. The changes look very natural and I wish I had done it sooner. Dr. Howard spent a lot of time designing a new smile for me. He provided pictures of what to expect afterwards and it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Leading Edge Dentistry. They are true professionals.

Dr. Howard is an extremely knowledgeable and gifted dentist. I am always pleased with the results and feel I am getting the best care around. They truly are a group worth smiling about.

I had my regular dental check up at Dr. Howard's practice yesterday since this pandemic stuff started. I was a little nervous, because this was my first visit to an establishment like this since the shutdown. I had nothing to worry about. It was an extremely pleasant experience and I felt comfortable from the very initial contact. The office staff were efficient, and made the revised check-in process to ensure the pandemic procedures were followed seem effortless. I only had to wait a couple of minutes for my appointment and was seated in a separate room from other in-coming patients. During the COVID-19 shutdown, Dr. Howard kept his patients informed on all the additional precautions he was taking to ensure that both patients and staff are protected from the virus. I was very impressed with his efforts and the new ventilation system. The office, while always clean and fresh, seemed even more so, if possible. I felt totally comfortable during the whole visit. I trust Dr. Howard and his staff and appreciate all they do.
