Leaders in Biomimetic Dentistry
Here at Cosmetic Dentistry of Knoxville, we are proud to offer biomimetic dentistry to our patients. Treatments such as crowns or root canal treatment require healthy tissue to be removed but our dentists have extensive training in preserving as much tooth structure as possible while restoring complete dental function. In fact, Biomimetic Dentistry is such a conservative approach, removing only the damaged portions of a tooth, that it can often reduce or even eliminate the need for crowns or root canal therapy altogether.

I am a very anxious patient, and I had quit going to the dentist about 6 years ago when I moved back to Knoxville. I researched reviews carefully, because I knew I had problems that needed immediate attention. I chose Dr Bailey after much thought, and I'm so glad I did. Dr Bailey is painless and easy to talk with about pending work. One of my favorite things about her practice is that she, her dental assistant, and her hygienist all have such calming personalities. That is necessary for me. The ladies at the reception area are always cheerful and welcoming. Take it from a nervous Nellie, you can't do any better than this office.View On Google

Dental implants are titanium roots that are directly anchored to the jawbone, providing a lifetime of support and stability. A dental implant acts as an artificial tooth root, serving as a solid foundation for a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking tooth that blends in with the rest of your smile.
Dental crowns protect damaged or decayed teeth from further damage. If left untreated, the tooth is vulnerable to fractures, infection, or further decay. Along with an added layer of protection, crowns can provide cosmetic benefits and are made of stunning materials such as porcelain.
Are you missing one or more teeth? A dental bridge is customized prosthetic teeth created to renew your ability to eat and chew properly. Once placed, a bridge functions like natural teeth and prevents surrounding teeth from shifting. For added support, bridges can be attached to dental implants.
For patients missing multiple teeth, dentures can replace a full arch of missing or extracted teeth. Along with restoring chewing ability and improving speech, dentures also help maintain facial structure by filling out the lips and cheeks. Dentures are custom-made for your comfort and can be used with implants for unbeatable support.
Dental bonding can treat a range of issues from cracks or chips to gaps between your teeth. Dental bonding uses tooth-colored resin to sculpt and repair the tooth. Patients can enjoy results in just one dental visit, making bonding a simple, convenient, and cost-effective option to improve your oral health.

Our Advanced Technology
Our Tekscan T-Scan™ device allows us to precisely measure the amount of force that occurs as the teeth meet, indicating any issues with the jaw. This technology has been revolutionary in helping patients who suffer from TMJ disorder, or teeth grinding. We can plan precise treatment that relieves your symptoms and addresses dysfunction in the jaw.
Laser dentistry is a versatile tool used to treat tooth decay and reshape the gums. During treatment, a beam of light is used to treat affected areas with absolute precision. Laser dentistry is more comfortable and conservative than traditional methods. Our dentists also have extensive training in laser dentistry and prioritize patient comfort.
Don't Delay Restorative Care
Many people think that a cavity isn't a big deal. But did you know that a cavity can eventually lead to a missing tooth if left untreated? Plaque gradually damages your tooth and makes it more susceptible to infection over time, which can spread to surrounding teeth. Our state-of-the-art facility can treat a range of oral health conditions to ensure they don't become more significant issues down the road.
