Serving Brentwood, Belle Meade and Green Hills Areas of Nashville TN
Regular brushing and flossing are crucial to maintaining good oral hygiene. However, sometimes patients need more than just regular preventive care to maintain their dental wellness. Meanwhile, certain aesthetic issues may develop with your smile. We want you to know how Devine Dentistry can use cosmetic dentistry to not only improve the appearance of your teeth but also make your smile healthier. That’s why we came up with this information to help you get honest about your smile makeover needs.
Cosmetic dentistry can restore your smile
Even with diligent at-home dental care, you probably will experience tooth decay at some point. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 90 percent of Americans over the age of 20 have some form of decay. Restorative and cosmetic dentistry often go hand in hand.
A modern dental office in Nashville like Devine Dentistry uses treatments that address both of these components, such as:
- Cavities – Areas of small decay can be repaired with a tooth-colored filling. In addition to being metal-free and retaining more of the natural tooth structure, a composite filling can be matched to the shape and color of your other natural healthy teeth.
- Fractured or broken tooth – A broken tooth can cause serious problems: tooth loss, throwing your bite out of alignment, and the risk of developing a serious infection. Your Nashville cosmetic dentist Dr. Brian Devine can place a customized dental crown to repair a broken tooth, replace its damaged exterior, and prevent the tooth from being lost. Our crowns are made with dental porcelain, a beautiful, durable material that can mimic the shade, shape, and overall appearance of your other healthy teeth.
- Replacing a lost tooth – Living with a missing permanent tooth has serious long-term consequences on your oral health. It impacts your ability to chew, affects the quality of your bite, and leads to deterioration of the supporting bone structure. Plus, you also have an unsightly gap in your smile that can make you self-conscious. Replace a missing tooth by receiving a dental implant in Belle Meade. An implant represents the most lifelike and durable method of tooth replacement currently available in the field of industry. Meanwhile, the implant screw itself replaces the root of the lost tooth, providing stimulation to the jawbone and preventing the otherwise inevitable bone loss.
