At Sequoyah Dental Arts, we create custom dental crowns to protect a damaged tooth from any further decay or damage as well as to restore the beauty and function to your smile

Dental Crown Before After

When might I need a crown?

You may need a crown if you:
• have a cavity that is too large for a filling
• have a missing tooth and need a bridge
• need to cover a dental implant
• have a tooth that is cracked, worn down or otherwise weakened
• have had root canal treatment—the crown will protect the restored tooth

Our custom porcelain crowns are also used when you want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile! Porcelain is the most life like material available and is strong enough to cover a damaged area for up to 20 years.

In order to begin the crown process, Dr. Pabo Foncea will examine the tooth to determine if it is stable enough to place the crown. Then, he will prepare it for the crown and place a temporary crown while the permeant one is made in the dental lab he works with. The temporary crown will protect the tooth until this happens. Once the permanent one arrives, you will have your second appointment in order to seat it or attach it to the original tooth. Dr. Foncea will then be sure that the new crown fits in the correct alignment with your bite.  This important piece makes a huge difference in the comfort and longevity of your teeth.

What are Dental crowns? How can they make your smile look perfect? Watch this video to learn more about dental crowns as Dr. Pablo Foncea from Sequoyah Dental Arts near Knoxville, TN explains.

Why are Dental Crowns used?

Dental Crowns are used to rebuild broken teeth, and to prevent teeth from fracturing.

In our office, we use a tooth color restoration. This acts as a new layer of protective enamel that replaces broken, weakened, or missing in your tooth.

How do we make crowns last a lifetime?

Today there is absolutely no need for an ugly crown. At Sequoyah Dental Arts, our crowns are lifelike and Strong! We want them to last a long time.

Is it possible to get natural-looking crowns?

We blend art and science to create natural-looking crowns. Our goal is your happiness and ours with the way they look.

Lost a crown on Friday PM. Called Monday and they worked me in. Perfect! Love this practice! Pablo and company are as near perfection as a practice can be. Been with them since he bought Dr. Diftler’s practice over a decade ago. Love em. Highest possibl praise. They have seen me through a couple of rough episodes. Great care. Plus he goes to Central America and does extensive Pro Bono work there.

Did I mention Dr. Foncea was number 2 in a class of over 400 at Boston University! Smart, well prepared, kind, and painless. Yeah I’d recommend them!
