Dental restoration is a large part of what we do at Cakmes Dental Studio. We know that everyone’s needs are different, so we work with each of our patients to find an individualized solution that will leave you with a healthier and happier smile. Two of the more complex dental restoration services we offer include porcelain crowns and bridges. These procedures are done for a variety of different reasons, including protection, restoration, and cosmetic needs. 

Porcelain Crowns

Crowns are dental prosthetic caps that are fitted over an original tooth. They are typically used to restore a broken or fractured tooth or for protecting a tooth, but can also be used for attaching a bridge or making cosmetic improvements. While crowns can be made from many different materials, porcelain is commonly used to match the natural color of your teeth. At Cakmes Dental, we offer both traditional and Cerec (CERamic REConstruction) custom crowns. Cerec allows us to create custom dental crowns for you in just one visit, as opposed to traditional crowns which would take several appointments. After your porcelain crown has been cemented into place by your dentist, it’s important to treat your crown like a natural tooth. Be sure to brush and floss your teeth twice per day to prevent cavities from forming under or around the crown. 


Having missing teeth can lead to more significant dental issues over time, including shifting teeth, overbites or underbites, and even gum disease or infection. Dental bridges are false teeth that are used to fill in missing teeth or replace gaps to prevent movement. Like crowns, bridges can be made from many materials, although porcelain is a common choice. Bridges also have the cosmetic benefit of restoring and enhancing your smile. During the procedure, Dr. Cakmes will use surrounding teeth as anchors to affix the dental bridge to, keeping it secure in place. 

For over 30 years, Cakmes Dental Studio has offered the Knoxville area the highest quality of dental care available. We use the latest technology, combined with our expert team, to give you the individualized care you need. Dental restoration, such as crowns and bridges, is just one of the many services that we offer at our studio.

National Dentist’s Day

Blog Single

Every year we take time to celebrate the many dentists who help to keep our teeth clean and healthy as part of National Dentist’s Day. This day takes place annually on March 6th and allows us to show appreciation to dental staff as well as pay attention to our own dental care. There are many ways you can observe this day as an appreciative patient!

Thank Your Dentist and Dental Staff

Letting your dentist know that you’re thankful for their help in maintaining your overall dental care goes a long way. This could be as simple as a quick “thank you” next time you’re in the office for an appointment. A nice thank you card or post on social media is also a great way to show your appreciation. If posting on social media, be sure to include the #NationalDentistsDay hashtag.

Schedule A Dentist Appointment

It’s recommended that all adults and children have a routine dental health checkup twice each year. If you’re due for a checkup, give your dentist a call and schedule an appointment. Regular cleanings are important in keeping your teeth, mouth, and gums all healthy. Your dentist will also be able to identify any early warning signs so that you can get the best care right away. Best of all, routine checkups leave your teeth feeling clean so that you can have confidence in your smile. 

Monitor Your Dental Health

Take extra time on National Dentist’s Day to make it a goal to improve your dental health. For example, if you only find yourself flossing occasionally rather than every day, commit to a regular flossing routine. Also pay attention to your brushing behaviors, ensuring that you brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time. 

What better way to celebrate National Dentist’s Day than by taking care of your teeth and scheduling a dentist appointment? At Cakmes Dental Studio, we’re thankful for our wonderful dentists, Dr. Nick and Steven Cakmes, and our entire dental staff, as they allow us to provide our patients with the highest quality of care, day in and day out. If you’re due for a dental cleaning or checkup, give us a call at (865) 584-6163 or contact us; we’d love to hear from you for any of your dental needs!
