How might Knoxville area patients repair a chipped or broken tooth?

Chipped or Broken Tooth solutions with Crowns

When one or more teeth have become chipped or broken, it is essential that Knoxville patients have a dentist repair these problems as soon as possible to avoid pain and further damage to the structure of the tooth. Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts helps patients in restoring their smiles after trauma, infection, disease, and decay with restorations such as dental crowns.

Crowns, which are sometimes referred to as “caps,” are porcelain restorations fabricated to bond over a natural tooth to restore function and beauty. They are made using impressions of the teeth after preparations have been made, including the removal of tooth enamel. Patients can enjoy new crowns in just a few weeks, after they are custom made through an outside laboratory with a ceramist.

Crowns are just one of many restorations used to repair chipped or broken teeth. In some instances, such as breakage on the anterior teeth, porcelain veneers may be preferred. They are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth for cosmetic improvements. Additionally, patients may be candidates for composite bonding, which is a resin material that is applied to the tooth, shaped, and polished to provide similar correction.

Dr. Pablo Foncea of Sequoyah Dental Arts will first consult with patients to ask them about the concerns they may have with their smiles. Whether it’s cosmetic or functional, crowns may help. Crowns are made to match the existing teeth to blend in and look as natural as possible. We provide cosmetic procedures that do not stand out as “fake” or as fabricated replacements. Instead, we focus on providing quality materials that closely mimic the appearance of tooth enamel for a beautiful, functional restoration. Patients may need to undergo an initial examination and x-rays to determine candidacy for crowns, and patients can ask any questions they have about the process and treatment during their initial appointment.

When used to restore the function of a tooth, dental crowns are sometimes covered by dental insurance, which will help reduce the cost of treatment. Additionally, our practice works with patients to assist them in attaining the services they require to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. Contact our practice today to learn more about our payment plans and financing options for general, preventative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures.
