Natural-Looking Dental Restorations Lebanon TN
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing dental crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and apparently beyond repair by a filling, we can use all ceramic or porcelain fused to gold dental crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth (dental bridge) to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long-lasting correction of major dental problems.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting dental crowns requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary dental crown which is tooth-colored and made of acrylic.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary dental crown and then fit and adjust the final dental crown. Finally, we will cement the dental crown into place and you have a new, beautiful-looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of dental crowns?
Dental crowns and dental bridgework are very reliable solutions for major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, or wear and tear. Major problems can usually be corrected using these techniques. Material used in these repairs is either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Where accidental damage has occurred, resulting in lost teeth, or where teeth have broken away through excessive wear, or as the result of old fillings breaking, dental crowns and/or dental bridges can be used as a long-term solution.
Many people have unexplained pain from filled back teeth, which is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. Placing dental crowns on these teeth relieves the pain and allows a return of full dental function for these teeth. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and cause “appearance” problems due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and dental bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, dental crowns can prevent breakage.
