Cosmetic Dentistry in Nashville

Your teeth take a lot of wear and tear, but cosmetic dentistry can repair the damage and restore your beautiful smile. The Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry is an award-winning practice that you can trust with your smile.

Aesthetic, or cosmetic dentistry, is all about making a positive change to your smile. Your teeth can lose their luster over time. Maybe they’ve developed a crack or chip here and there, or maybe you’re even missing a tooth. Aesthetic dentistry has solutions for each of these problems.

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures we perform. The Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry offers in-office and take-home procedures, each of which can leave you with a dazzling, awesome smile.

Porcelain veneers are an increasingly popular choice. Veneers are thin, custom-made covers made of medical-grade ceramic. They are attached to the front surfaces of the teeth, and the results are immediate and dramatic. They can be used not only to whiten your smile, but for orthodontic adjustments.

There is also a DURAthin & Micro-thin option, that allows you to improve the appearance of your teeth without having to remove any enamel.

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped covers that fit over a tooth. Crowns are cemented into place to restore the tooth’s shape, size, and strength, as well as improve its appearance.

Dental implants are replacements for teeth that have been lost to extraction, or for some other reason. Leaving a hole in your jaw where the tooth’s root used to be can weaken the bone, so implants are more than just cosmetic. The implant is surgically affixed to the jaw, and the replacement structure is fitted on top of that.

No matter what cosmetic procedure is best for you, the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry can help. With more than thirty years of experience, you can trust your teeth to us. Call today for an appointment.

Mainstream: Dental Implants in Brentwood

Did you know that as many as sixty-nine percent of adults between the ages of thirty-five and forty-four have lost at least one of their permanent teeth? That may seem a little scary, especially if you’re in that group. But the good news is that dental implants, here in Brentwood and across the country, are better than they’ve ever been, and are expected to keep getting better.

Dental implants, as you may know, are replacements for teeth that have been extracted or knocked out. The implant itself is a titanium post that is permanently inserted into the patient’s jawbone. It replaces the missing tooth’s natural root. On top of the post is a support structure called an abutment. A restoration tooth, or crown, goes on top that.

Not so long ago, dental implants were available but uncommon. Today they’re considered part of mainstream dentistry. Most people who are missing a tooth are candidates for getting an implant. There aren’t that many restrictions.

One very real restriction, however, is whether the patient has enough bone in the jaw to support an implant. And patients who have had radiation therapy may not be viable candidates, because the radiation might prevent the implant from fusing to the bone.

What makes dental implants so attractive to many patients is that they are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. And because they are physically attached to the jaw, they don’t have to be removed and cleaned. (They do need to be cleaned, however, just like natural teeth.)

At the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry near Brentwood, Dr. Dennis Wells has more than thirty years of experience with cosmetic dentistry. He and his staff would love to hear from you.

Teeth Whitening in Nashville: Lots of Options

restorative dentistry NashvilleThere are more teeth-whitening options today than ever before, for the people of Nashville and throughout Tennessee.

From whitening toothpastes to over-the-counter home whitening systems, to professional grade systems you can only get from your dentist, all it really takes to get a fantastic smile is a little determination.

When teeth-whitening products first came on the market, they were very abrasive to the teeth. That’s why they worked. But at what cost? Some of those consumer products took off layers of enamel, along with the dullness. Needless to say, that is too high a price to pay.

If you’re out to whiten your teeth, one of the things to keep in mind is avoiding substances that can stain or damage the shade of your teeth. Everything you consumer, from food and drink to liquid medication to tobacco, has the potential to discolor your teeth.

Talk to one of our staff members. Find out about the teeth whitening option you can do at home – it’s convenient, as well as more effective than any toothpaste or over-the-counter product. We also offer an in-office whitening procedure that can give you a dazzling smile in just one appointment.

Imagine: brilliant white teeth in less than one hour! You’ll get even better results by combing our in-office treatment with a home whitening system.

Dr. Dennis Wells and the Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry will be happy to help you to decide which teeth whitening option is best for you and your smile. Call (615) 866-5151 for a consultation, or to find out more.

Ready To Change Up Your Smile?

As we ring in the New Year, the idea of change and improvement is on everyone’s minds. Often this manifests itself in the form of a gym membership that gets a lot of January use and then tapers off. But what if you could make a simple change that positively affects your appearance and that would last for many years to come?

Dental veneers have long been a favorite cosmetic dentistry procedure for patients because of their instant enhancement of your smile. There are a few different options for you to consider.

Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain attached to your teeth that can help improve a number issues, from gaps and discoloration to chips and misalignment. Dental veneers can give you that ‘movie star’ smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Another option that we provide at Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry in Brentwood, Tennessee are DURAThin Veneers and Micro-thin veneers. These two types of prepless dental veneers bond directly to the tooth without any removal of natural enamel that takes place during standard porcelain veneer placement. They have the same smile enhancing effect as porcelain veneers, giving you a gorgeous and more youthful smile.

Dr. Dennis Wells will be happy to consult with you to determine which option would be best for you and your smile. But no matter what you choose, you can be sure that your gorgeous new smile will be the “new you” that you’re looking for. Give us a call at (615) 866-5151 or visit us at 105 Powell Ct Ste 101, Nashville TN 37027.

Replace Those Missing Teeth

Did you know that sharks typically lose at least one tooth a week? Because of how their teeth are arranged in their mouths, the missing tooth can be replaced in a day. That’s approximately 35,000 lost teeth in a lifetime!

Thankfully we will never have to experience tooth loss of that magnitude. But even the loss of just one tooth can be a major inconvenience for us humans. That’s where Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry comes in. We know the frustration, embarrassment and discomfort that can come from having a missing tooth. That’s why we offer top of the line dental implant treatment for our cosmetic dentistry patients to help restore your smile.

Dental implants are a safe and effective replacement for missing teeth. A titanium screw is implanted into your jawbone as a replacement for your tooth root. The implant undergoes a process where it integrates with your jawbone to create a secure and permanent bond. Once placed, the implant is topped with a custom created dental crown to perfectly match your smile. With the proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime. In addition to restoring your smile, a dental implant can also help keep your jawbone and surrounding teeth healthy.

Stop hiding your missing teeth and let Dr. Dennis Wells give you a smile you can be proud of. Call today at (615) 866-5151 or visit us at:

The Future of Dental Implants in Nashville?

dental implants NashvilleDental implants are usually the ideal restoration for those who want to replace a missing tooth. If the jaw bone is too thin, however, the procedure won’t work.

Unlike a dental bridge, a tooth implant consists of a titanium post inserted into the jaw bone. The bone meshes with the post to create a strong base for the natural-looking prosthetic tooth and crown that attaches to the post.

During a tooth extraction, the bone loses the blood circulation at the former site of the root. This contributes to bone recession. In more serious cases, the bone isn’t able to hold the dental implant post.

Bone grafting augments the bone at the implant site and provides the bone density necessary for a successful implant. While effective, the process requires additional time for the new bone to generate. A new discovery may provide a quicker solution for regenerating bone.

In recent years, researchers at Georgia Regents University identified a protein that quickly stimulates the production of new bone. The research team, led by Dr. Ulf M.E. Wikesjo, implanted bone morphogenetic protein in test subjects and discovered that “more new bone formed within four weeks than with conventional bone grafting.”

While this research looks promising, the protein and its effects will require further testing. Our goal is to make dental implants possible for all patients with missing teeth and jawbone recession. To schedule restorative dentistry procedure, contact Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry. We’ll work with you to create a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Losing Sleep Over TMJ in Nashville?

cosmetic dentist BrentwoodAre you one of the many TMJ sufferers? If you are affected by Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, you know how the pain and discomfort can affect your sleeping habits and quality of life.

At Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry, our personalized treatment plans help patients manage their TMJ disorder.

The Temporomandibular, or jaw, joint connects the lower jaw bone to the skull. TMJ disorder is often associated with jaw clicking, locking or clenching, and can cause long-term tooth damage and bone loss.

Symptoms of TMJ disorder include:

  • jaw and facial pain
  • headaches
  • earaches
  • neck pain
  • chewing difficulty

Generally, patients seek out a TMJ diagnosis after unsuccessfully seeking treatment for chronic headaches. Jaw and sinus pain may be widespread, which makes pinpointing the affected area difficult. A specialist can properly diagnose your specific TMJ issues and recommend an effective course of action.

Because a comprehensive treatment plan is most successful, we work hand-in-hand with a network of TMJ specialists, including ENT doctors, neurologists and physical therapists. There are many facets to this often-misunderstood disorder.

If you’re in pain, don’t wait. Call Nashville Center for Aesthetic Dentistry at (615) 866-5151 for a consultation today.
