Dental Crowns | Brentwood TN
Repairing & Protecting Your Teeth
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing 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, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” 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 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. It is usual for these treatments to last for 20 to 30 years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
How long does it take to fit a dental crown?
Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to our office. Initially, we will remove decay, shape the tooth, and fit it with a temporary crown of either plastic or metal.
On the subsequent visit, we will remove the temporary crown and then fit and adjust the final crown. Finally, we will cement the crown into place and you have a new beautiful looking tooth.

What are the capabilities of crowns?
Crown and bridgework is a very reliable solution 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, crowns and/or 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 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 bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

Patient Review from Libby F
My experience with Dr. Poss and his team was truly exceptional. They always took time to listen to me and addressed my questions and concerns graciously. Drawing near the end of my treatment my teeth look beautiful and my jaw pain and headaches are much improved. I am so thankful for all the work this team put in to seeing my goals met. I recommend them to anyone struggling with TMJ. They are great at what they do and a pleasure to be around.

Patient Review from Teal H
I had a dental appointment today to get a temporary crown on. Dr. Poss at Poss Dental Designs has been my dentist for almost a year and a half. I've had several crowns done by another dentist over the years whom I'd been with since I was 18 and really liked. I started going to Dr. Poss because he's the one I chose to get my 6 Month Smile braces done by--my former dentist didn't offer that service. So . . . what's with the post about it? Well, at 7:30 tonight I received a message from him, personally, on my cell making sure I was doing okay and to let me know if I needed anything to just call. THAT, my friends, is how you do business. If you live in locally, you won't go wrong with choosing him as your dentist. I highly recommend him. Oh! And his staff is also fantastic. 🙂

Patient Review from Cody F
Moving to a new city can be stressful, but I think finding a new dentist is my least favorite part of the process. Thankfully, Dr. Poss and his staff made the entire experience joyful and very convenient. For the first time, I'm actually looking forward to coming back to the dentist!
