When you come into our Crossville dental office for your consultation you’ll receive a full assessment and find out if crowns are right for you. Porcelain crowns are often indicated in the following cases: decayed teeth, broken or fractured teeth, large fillings, fractured fillings, teeth that need root canal surgery, cosmetic enhancement.
When it comes time to place your crown, the tooth and adjacent gum are anesthetized. While the area is numb, Dr. Shanks will prepare the tooth, removing any decay and shaping the surface to facilitate the new crown. When these preparations are completed, the finished crown will be secured in place with permanent adhesive. Dr. Shanks will then carefully evaluate the spacing and bite.
Sedation dentistry with Dr. Shanks allows his patients to relax while undergoing restorative and cosmetic dental procedures like dental implants and full arch restorations. In addition, dental sedation enables patients to overcome anxiety from discomfort up to phobia about even visiting the dentist. Plus, sedation allows you to group various procedures into a single visit and have little or no recollection of the procedure.
Here, your comfort is our priority; that’s why Northside Family Dentistry provides options to help you relax during your treatment at our Crossville, TN office.
