Dentist office in Maryville, TN: Your destination for quality preventive, restorative, and cosmetic care

We are fortunate to have one of the most stunning natural wonders in our backyard. The Great Smoky Mountains are, far and away, the most-visited national park. And, just as our neck of the foothills is a tourist destination, we at Proffitt Dentistry are privileged to be your destination for quality preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental care in Maryville, TN. Dentist Dr. William F. Proffitt, Jr. has more than 35 years’ experience preventing, managing, and resolving oral conditions.

Along with his skilled team at Proffitt Dentistry, he has proactively addressed most dental conditions, such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer in a gentle, precise, and conservative way. Each patient’s case is unique and should be evaluated and treated in a manner that reflects the patient’s desire for good health. Dr. Proffitt encourages his patients to choose good health, good function and good esthetics for a lifetime.

One approach to restorative dentistry is the technique of Biomimetic dentistry.  “Bio” refers to “life,” while “mimetic” translates to “to imitate” or “to mimic.” Dr. Proffitt has spent the last five years learning and becoming proficient in treating decay or disease in a way that best replicates the natural structure of living tissues such as tooth enamel. Such conservative or biomimetic dentistry emphasizes the preservation of healthy, natural tissues using biocompatible (tissue-friendly) dental materials. Even with considerable advancements in dental materials and technologies, there is still no artificial tooth or tissue material that is superior in form and function to natural, healthy tissues. This technique allows you to keep more of your natural enamel.

By its nature, Biomimetic dentistry  is also less invasive and, in turn, less traumatic than more aggressive, conventional approaches to removing dental decay and rebuilding a tooth. Minimally invasive techniques are also generally well tolerated by patients; they are associated with comfortable treatment, low risks of adverse side effects and complications, supporting overall patient satisfaction, and lasting oral health. Just a few of the ways that we conservatively protect health, promptly treat problems, and support functional, stunning smiles are listed below:

  • Tooth-colored fillings made from tissue-compatible, lifelike composite resin
  • Inlays and onlays as alternatives to full-coverage crowns
  • “Gold standard” dental implants to replace a single missing tooth, or a mouthful of teeth
  • Precision-fit partials and complete dentures 
  • “Prep-less” porcelain veneers
  • Cosmetic Clear Aligners/braces

Additionally, advanced technologies such as DIAGNOdent™ laser cavity detection promote early detection and prompt treatment of the leading causes of tooth loss: decay and gum disease. Laser and digital diagnostic and treatment tools are also gentle and minimize trauma to the treatment site. So, post-treatment side effects such as bleeding and discomfort are also minimized, and fast healing is supported. 

All restorative procedures are as cosmetic as they are functional; however, Proffitt Dentistry also offers treatments that are primarily designed with smile aesthetics in mind. These cosmetic treatments include professional teeth whitening (bleaching). To experience the Proffitt approach for yourself, contact us to schedule your appointment at our Maryville office.
