Broken or damaged teeth can be painful and can also jeopardize your oral health. At East Cobb Premier Dental we offer fast, effective repair for cracked, chipped, or damaged teeth by our friendly team of dental professionals. Dr. Christen Ebeling is a top dentist in the Marietta area, offering excellent restorative dental care including dental crowns, inlays, and onlays for damaged teeth.
Restore Cracked or Damaged Teeth
Dental crowns are one option for restoring broken, cracked or damaged teeth to health and function. At East Cobb Premier Dental, Dr. Ebeling uses dental crowns for many tooth repairs when the original tooth is no longer strong enough to withstand pressure or needs protection. Dental crowns offer a durable covering for the entire surface and protect the damaged tooth underneath. Plus, we offer porcelain or white crowns that can be color matched to your smile, keeping your teeth beautiful and healthy.
Dental crowns are used for severely damaged teeth. Whether a tooth has been cracked or broken from trauma, or extensive dental treatments have weakened the structure, a dental crown can extend the life of a tooth for decades. Dr. Ebeling ensures that the new crown fits comfortably and is aesthetically pleasing, restoring your tooth and smile.
Dental Inlays and Onlays
When a tooth is damaged but does not require a complete dental crown, dental inlays or onlays can often be used to repair the tooth. These are porcelain dental treatments that strengthen the tooth surface, without putting excess pressure on the structure. Inlays and onlays are created from impressions made from your tooth in a dental lab, then bonded to your tooth. This puts less stress on the tooth than a large filling, helping protect your teeth from further damage.
If you have a cracked or damaged tooth, contact East Cobb Premier Dental right away. We offer broken tooth repairs with dental crowns, inlays, and onlays to restore your smile.
Dental Implants: The Most Durable Support for Your Restorations
If you are missing a tooth, then you already know how a gap in your smile can impact your self-confidence. Missing teeth can also cause oral health concerns, such as teeth shifting out of alignment and bone loss. The surest way to avoid escalating dental problems and to rejuvenate your smile is with dental implants. Implants are small titanium posts that boast unparalleled support for dentures, crowns, and bridges.
Selecting an experienced implant dentist is the first important step in your restorative experience. Backed with years of service, Dr. Ebeling can place dental implants with confidence and to your satisfaction. To find out more about how dental implants can restore your smile, schedule your consultation with us today.
To place dental implants, most patients need at least two appointments, including a healing period of three to six months in between. In certain situations, same-day implants are available, allowing the patient to leave our office with their permanent restorations after just one visit.
Prior to your surgery, digital x-rays will be taken of your entire oral structure, including your jaw and adjacent bones. Using innovative imagery technology, we can precisely plan your surgery, effectively increasing your comfort level and reducing your recovery time. During the surgery, a small incision will be made at the gum line, and a very small pilot hole will be made. The implant is then placed in that area. Over the next few months, the implant will fuse securely with the surrounding bone. While healing, you will be given same-day temporary restorations that look incredibly natural.
When the implant has fused in place, you will come back for your second appointment. Dr. Ebeling will attach your custom-designed, permanent restorations to the titanium posts, and your new smile will be complete.
Types of Dental Implants
To meet your unique oral health and aesthetic needs, Dr. Ebeling is proud to offer a full spectrum of implant types, including:
- Single tooth, multiple teeth, and full arch implants
- Same-day implants
- Mini implants
- Larger implants for molars
Dental Implants Advantages
When fusing to your existing bone, implant-retained dentures offer the enormous benefit of allowing you to speak, laugh, and chew with total confidence. Implants are also an outstanding option for dental bridge patients. Traditionally, bridges require the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth to be modified in order to anchor the bridge and sometimes those are perfectly good teeth. With implant-supported bridges, your healthy teeth do not need to be altered.
Preserving Your Oral Health
Dental implants also claim a unique advantage that no other form of tooth replacement support can by maintaining the structure of your jaw by stopping the absorption of bone cells. When a tooth root is missing for an extended period of time, the body will reabsorb the surrounding bone cells. This can change the structure of your facial appearance, creating withdrawn cheeks and puckered lips. A dental implant replaces the function of a tooth root and prevents future bone loss, preserving your oral health.

If you are interested in the most stable and long-lasting support for your restorations, contact our office to find out whether implants are right for you.
If you have developed a cavity, it is important that we treat it as soon as possible. Without proper care, the cavity can worsen and you may eventually require root canal therapy or an extraction. We offer several types of fillings for small to moderately sized cavities. Traditionally, metal amalgam fillings have been the most common material for fillings. While these restorations are durable and effective, over time they may begin to show through your teeth. For the most lifelike appearance, consider tooth-colored fillings, which will blend with your smile for a natural appearance.
A dental bridge is designed to replace one or more consecutive missing teeth. A traditional bridge is held in place by crowns attached to the adjacent teeth, while implant-supported restorations are attached to dental implants and do not depend on the natural teeth for support. Dr. Ebeling and East Cobb Premier Dental team will help you determine what type of bridge is best for your needs. We offer bridges made from many durable materials that provide unparalleled support and aesthetic appeal.
Using the latest models and techniques in restorative dentistry, it is absolutely possible for you to have comfortable and natural-looking dentures. Dr. Ebeling is a skilled restorative dentist who stays at the forefront of her field. This allows us to offer the latest denture solutions to East Cobb patients who need extensive teeth replacement.
If you have empty spaces in your smile, you can depend on top quality restorations from our modern East Cobb dental practice. We strive to minimize and even eliminate the consequences of missing teeth, which can include functional and cosmetic issues. A full or partial denture can help you regain the smile you once had or create the one you’ve always wanted. We offer a variety of denture options that can be catered just for you.
For those that have multiple missing teeth but still have healthy existing teeth, a partial denture can be used to complete your smile. Dr. Ebeling offers partials made of premium, durable materials. Depending on your unique needs and preferences, your partial denture can be removable with attachable clips or brackets or anchored into place with dental implants for maximum stability. Dr. Ebeling can discuss what to expect with each method.
For your added benefit, we use state-of-the-art equipment to take precise measurements for your dentures, partials or implant supported dentures. This gives patients the best opportunity to have the most successful results with their dentures. Regardless of what caused you to need restorative dentistry, we want you to have a smile that feels, functions and looks just like your natural teeth!
