Center for Advanced Dentistry: Services
Boutique Dentistry for Nashville, Tennessee
Looking attractive is one of the essential functions of your teeth, so all dentistry should be cosmetic dentistry. All dental procedures we perform consider the aesthetics of your smile, but we also offer procedures specifically intended to improve the appearance of your smile.
A smile makeover is when we use a combination of cosmetic procedures to give you the smile you desire, whether it is one you have only dreamt of or the smile you used to have but lost. Each smile makeover is custom-designed for you.
Did you know that you can get some of the effects of a facelift without surgery? Restoring the natural proportions of your teeth can get rid of wrinkles, plump lips, reduce jowls, and more!
Porcelain veneers are thin facades of advanced ceramic that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. They can reshape your teeth and make discolored teeth look bright again–you can achieve an entirely new smile in just one procedure.
Dental bonding is a quick, inexpensive procedure that allows you to get small chips, poorly formed teeth, or even gaps between teeth fixed in a single visit. Dental bonding is a plastic paste that can be shaped, then hardened using light.
Your gums are essential to an attractive smile. But they can crowd your teeth, making for a gummy smile, or an uneven gum line can make straight teeth look crooked. Laser gum recontouring lets us reshape your gums with minimal discomfort.
Many foods and drinks can discolor your teeth with stains that get trapped in the enamel. This makes your teeth look unhealthy and contributes to an aged appearance. Teeth whitening breaks down those stains to help restore the whiteness of your teeth.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world because it is safe, effective, and affordable. BOTOX ® Cosmetic can erase many facial wrinkles, and it’s completely reversible if you do not like the results.
A dental implant is a tooth replacement option that is structured like your natural teeth. It has a root designed to bond to your jawbone, so it’s fully anchored. It can be used to replace a single tooth or a full arch, and it can last a lifetime.
Restorative dentistry is used when your teeth have been damaged. Tooth decay, trauma, and tooth wear related to normal chewing or abnormal bite conditions may all require restorative dentistry.
Dental crowns are used to cover teeth that have been damaged, giving them strength and an attractive appearance. Crowns can also support dental bridges, an option for replacing lost teeth.
Inlays and onlays are a kind of ceramic filling used to repair decay to your teeth. Although they are more expensive than composite fillings, they are longer-lasting, more attractive, and can strengthen weakened teeth.
If your tooth has become infected, a root canal can remove the infection and restore your tooth to function. A tooth treated with endodontics can function as well and last as long as a dental implant. Contrary to what you might fear, root canals actually relieve pain more than cause it.
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ or TMD) can cause many symptoms such as jaw pain, headaches, ear pain, ringing in the ears, dizziness, or more. With one course of treatment, we can typically relieve all these symptoms that your doctor has been unable to treat.
Jaw pain is one of the most characteristic symptoms of TMJ. Whether you are experiencing dull muscle pain or sharp, electric nerve pain, TMJ treatment may be able to help.
If you’ve been struggling with headaches and are unable to get relief, TMJ may be to blame. TMJ can cause serious, recurring tension headaches and may even trigger migraines.
Sleep apnea is when your breathing stops repeatedly while sleeping. This can cause serious health problems including mental or emotional disorders, cardiovascular diseases, and even metabolic dysfunction.
Snoring is one of the most common signs of sleep apnea, but it is also a nuisance in its own right. The sound is just part of the problem, which includes obstructed airways that can cause poor, nonrestorative sleep.
Gum disease is one of the most common chronic diseases in the US, and it’s also an oral health problem with serious systemic effects. Gum disease can contribute to heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, pregnancy complications, and other health problems.
Dental anxiety may prevent some people from seeing a dentist for cosmetic procedures, preventive care, or even needed treatment. Sedation dentistry helps anxious patients relax at the dentist so they can get desired or needed treatment.
Preventive dentistry allows us to save patients’ health and their budget at the same time. Preventive dental care is much less expensive than restorative care, and it keeps chronic, systemic illness at bay.
Orthodontics refers to the practice of straightening teeth, which can be done using traditional techniques like wire braces, or more recent innovations such as clear plastic aligners.
Invisalign is an orthodontic approach that uses clear plastic aligners rather than metal wires to straighten teeth. It can be more comfortable, lets wearers enjoy a full range of foods, and is not harder to clean than your regular teeth.
Six Month Smiles is an orthodontic approach that uses traditional wire braces, but uses them smarter to save you time. Not only is treatment time cut in half, but your dental visits are shorter and more efficient, too.
Holistic dentistry means approaching every patient as a whole human being, all of whose complex systems–oral, physical, mental, and emotional–are interconnected, and what impacts one can impact them all. We strive to provide dental treatment that contributes to your improved well being.
