Restorative Dentistry Provides Endless Benefits

Improved Oral Health

Untreated decay or damage can spread to surrounding teeth and gums, putting your health at risk. Restorative dentistry repairs and strengthens your teeth to ensure a healthy smile and protects it from further damage.

Eliminated Pain

Oral health issues that have progressed can lead to a host of painful symptoms. Our dentists utilize modern technology and techniques to accurately identify where the pain is coming from, which areas are affected, and how to best treat them.

Restored Function

Damaged or missing teeth can make daily activities like eating or speaking a challenge. Restorative dentistry improves your quality of life by restoring function, allowing you to eat your favorite foods and meet people with confidence.

Higher Self-Esteem

Certain dental conditions such as chips or cracks can make you self-conscious about your smile. Restorative dentistry not only improves the function of your teeth–it can also enhance your appearance and boost your self-image as well.

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.

Doctors Bailey and Sliger have proven to be one of the best health-care choices our family has ever made. Their tools, techniques, and up-to-the-minute training put them years ahead of our previous dentists, yet their costs are comparable. Again and again, Dr. Bailey has gone the extra mile — research, consultation with others, time and care — to be sure our complex dental problems were diagnosed correctly and solved. We’ve been satisfied with every interaction with Dr. Bailey, her colleague Dr. Sliger, and her friendly, accessible staff. We’re grateful and happy to recommend her.

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.

Implant-supported crown

Dental Implants

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

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.

Dental bridge

Dental Bridges

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.

Implant-supported denture

Dentures

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.

Chipped tooth

Dental Bonding

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.

Dental implants fuse to the jawbone to provide rock-solid support and stability for years to come.

Our Advanced Technology

Here at Cosmetic Dentistry of Knoxville, we're proud to use the most advanced dental technology available to date. We believe in working smartly and efficiently to save you time in the dental chair and ensure you have the best results possible.

Tekscan

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

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.

Advanced decay can penetrate a tooth. Our dentists can often save a tooth without root canal therapy, but this procedure remains a trusted and effective treatment option as well.

Comparing Restorative Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry

There is some overlap between restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, but the main difference is the intent. Cosmetic dental care is based on aesthetics, with the goal to improve the appearance of your teeth and gums. Restorative dental care is based on addressing decay, infection, or pain to achieve a healthy smile. Many restorative procedures have aesthetic benefits, such as dental crowns, bonding, or dental implants. Whether you're interested in addressing just one or a combination of both, our team can provide expert care in all areas to the residents of Knoxville.
