Welcome to our Practice

Welcome to Clark Dental Studio!

We’re so glad you stopped by to learn more about our practice. It’s our goal to provide you and your family with the most comfortable and pleasant dental experience you’ve ever had!

Dr. James Kimball established his practice at this location nearly 40 years ago, serving patients from Chattanooga and surrounding areas. Dr. Matt Clark recently purchased the current practice, Clark Dental Studio, and is grateful to Dr. Kimball for the wonderful care he has consistently provided to his patients. We’re very excited about carrying on his tradition of excellence!

Our Core Values Put Your Needs First

We understand that many people are fearful about visiting the dentist. Over the years, our wonderful team has worked with fearful patients, helping them to overcome their fears. Using a friendly, compassionate approach, we’ll show you that it really isn’t necessary to spend your life avoiding dental visits due to anxiety.

When you have scheduled time with us, our focus is completely on you and your needs. We spend the time it takes to get to know you because we’ve found it’s the best way to put you at ease and help us understand your concerns. And when you know you’re being cared for by people who care about your feelings, suddenly dental care seems a lot less challenging!

We are committed to treating all our patients with the highest degree of respect and understanding. If we believe you need a particular procedure, we’ll take the time to discuss why it’s necessary and how it will benefit your oral health. By making decisions together, we ensure that you receive the care that’s best suited to your needs.

We Take the Stress Out of Managing Dental Care

You probably have financial concerns about your dental care, and we want to do everything we can to minimize these worries for you.

If you’re insured, you may have lots of questions about what is and isn’t covered and how it will affect your dental care. Our goal is to take the guesswork out of insurance coverage and benefits and ensure you always receive the maximum benefits offered under your policy.

We work with a number of insurance companies, including Delta Dental, Cigna, Aetna, and River Health. However, we are happy to file all insurance claims for our patients’ convenience. Please contact our Chattanooga dental office with your insurance questions and we’ll find the answers you’re looking for!

If you’re not insured, that's no problem, either. We accept all major credit cards and also offer interest-free CareCredit financing. CareCredit allows you to arrange easy monthly payments that fit your budget. Please contact our office to learn more about this convenient interest-free financing option and apply for instant approval.

Crowns & Bridges

It’s hard to believe the impact that even one missing or damaged tooth can have on your life.

Eating all the foods you love may be more difficult or impossible. Your speech may also be affected. Your self-confidence starts to fade because you just don't feel like smiling openly when socializing.

At Clark Dental Studio, we understand the frustration of having to deal with damaged teeth because you just don't have time in your busy life to deal with one more problem. Fortunately, we offer options that will get your smile back in shape in no time.

Restore Unhealthy Teeth with Crowns

If you’re looking for an effective, time-tested solution for correcting dental problems caused by disease, routine wear and tear, or accidents, a dental crown may be the answer.

Older fillings on your front teeth may cause cosmetic problems like discoloration. An old filling can also weaken the tooth and cause it to chip or break.

Dental crowns allow us to create a restoration that can resolve a variety of problems: 

  • Reinforce and protect teeth damaged by disease, trauma, or decay 
  • Fix functional problems like an uneven dental bite
  • Conceal esthetic flaws like wide gaps between teeth
  • Replace a missing tooth (dental implant restoration)
  • Protect a tooth after root canal treatment

At Clark Dental Studio, we choose to use natural-looking porcelain crowns. Metal-lined porcelain crowns are also effective, but over time, a thin dark line can appear above the tooth, detracting from your appearance. Our durable porcelain crowns are just as effective and can be created to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Replace Missing Teeth with Fixed Bridges

Fixed dental bridges are restorations that consist of an artificial tooth (pontic) and fill the empty space left after the loss of a natural tooth. Bridges are designed as a single unit that includes the artificial tooth and held securely in place by crowns attached to neighboring teeth. 

To create a customized bridge for you, we start by preparing the teeth where the bridge will be attached. Next, we'll take accurate digital impressions to form a mold of your tooth. This information is sent on to a respected dental lab where your restoration is crafted. A couple weeks later, you'll return to our Chattanooga office, and we'll adjust the bridge to ensure a perfect fit and a fully functioning tooth.

Please Call to Arrange an Appointment

Are you tired of trying to live your life around a damaged or missing tooth? It’s inconvenient, unattractive, and can have a dramatic effect on your self-confidence. There’s no reason to put up with these problems when crowns and bridges can easily restore your teeth to full health. Imagine being able to eat all your favorite foods and smile with confidence again!

Please call our Chattanooga dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange an appointment at your convenience.
