Knoxville dentist describes the dental crowns procedure

Dental Crowns Procedure Knoxville

Patients in the Knoxville, TN area who have experienced oral trauma or tooth loss may benefit from dental crowns. Crowns are made of porcelain and are used to provide strength to teeth that have been affected by trauma, have undergone treatments such as root canal therapy, or to restore a dental implant when patients have lost a tooth. Dental crowns may also be bonded to false teeth called pontics to create a dental bridge. These restorations are extremely versatile and many patients consider them because they are fast, affordable, effective, and beautiful.

Patients who have been told by Dr. Pablo Foncea that they may benefit from the placement of a dental crown often ask about the procedure.

The first appointment may be an examination and x-rays to determine if patients are appropriate candidates for dental crowns. This is when Dr. Pablo Foncea will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of porcelain crowns and help them make a decision in regards to which solution is best for their specific needs and desires. During that appointment, the dentist may also start the preparation procedure. Preparation for a dental crown requires that a thin portion of enamel be removed from the structure of the tooth to ensure a tight, long-lasting bond with the new crown. Then, impressions are made. These are done to help the ceramist fabricate the new crown to fit precisely over the prepared tooth. These impressions are sent out to a dental laboratory where they are fabricated.

If you believe dental crowns may be appropriate for your smile, contact Dr. Pablo Foncea today to schedule your initial consultation appointment and examination to learn more about this popular method of repairing the teeth.
