Dental Crown Services in Knoxville
A dental crown is a cap that can be used to replace a missing tooth that is apart of a bridge. Dental crowns can be made to match the natural color and shape of the tooth to strengthen and restore your smile. Crowns are used in cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry for a variety of purposes.
A crown may be used for a tooth that is:
- In need of protection after a root canal
Dental crowns are made using a variety of materials, including porcelain, zirconia, metal, ceramic, or a combination of materials. Factors such as the location of the crown, the amount of remaining natural tooth, and if the tooth will show when you smile help the dentist determine the best material for your crown. The process begins with preparing the tooth and scanning the area for the crown.
The scan is used to create a new crown that will perfectly fit over your existing tooth or on an implant to replace a missing tooth. After the crown has been made, we will check to make sure the fit is right before cementing your crown into place.
Careful brushing and flossing and avoiding hard foods can help your crown last for years. The lifespan of a dental crown depends on various factors, including your oral hygiene practices and habits like teeth grinding. On average, dental crowns can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years or more.
If you have one or more missing teeth, a crown or bridge can provide a sturdy and effective restoration. A dental bridge is a dental appliance that is designed to replace two or more missing teeth. We offer crowns and bridges in Knoxville to restore missing teeth with the procedure that is most effective for each patient.
Several options are available for bridges, such as:
- Fixed bridges
- Removable bridges
- Partial dental bridges
Bridges are often held in place by the teeth on either side of the space where multiple teeth are missing. These are called the anchor teeth or abutment teeth. If there are no teeth to anchor the bridge, or these teeth are weak, dental implants with crowns can be used to hold the replacement teeth in place. We can explain your options and recommend the best type of dental bridge for you.
