Tooth Crowns Procedure from Dr.Pablo Foncea, Sequoyah Dental Arts

Knoxville, TN area patients who are interested in providing extra protection, coverage, and restoration for their smiles may be introduced by Dr. Pablo Foncea at Sequoyah Dental Arts to dental crowns. Dental crowns have been used in general and cosmetic dentistry for many decades to improve the health, beauty, and function of the smile while protecting natural teeth from damage.

Dental crowns are also referred to by patients as “caps.” They cover the entire visible portion of the tooth. These porcelain restorations are custom-made to look like the existing teeth in the smile for seamless integration. Dr. Pablo Foncea works with a quality dental laboratory that can fabricate beautiful restorations including porcelain veneers, bridges, crowns, and dentures.

Dental crowns do require a certain procedure for placement. The tooth that requires the crown will need to be prepared. This requires filing down the natural tooth enamel to prepare the tooth for placement of the crown. This reduces the bulk once the restoration is placed. Filing down the tooth is done in the dental office and is then followed with a series of impressions. Molds of the tooth are made and sent to the dental laboratory. This allows the ceramist to fabricate a dental crown that is a precise fit for the patient’s tooth. Creation of the crown can take a week or two before it is sent to Sequoyah Dental Arts for placement.

Patients are welcomed back into the dental office for the placement of their dental crown. This is done quickly and easily in the dentist’s chair as the crown is bonded into place. Patients will be able to go about the remainder of their day without interruption, but with a more beautiful, fully restored smile!

Dr. Pablo Foncea understands that patients may feel uncertain about having certain dental procedures done. Because of this, he educates his patients on the procedures necessary for the dental services in his office so there are no surprises before, during, or after their treatment.
