Our Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Here at Cool Springs Laser Dentistry, our cosmetic dental treatments help reshape and transform your gums and teeth, providing you with a beautiful, new smile. Before beginning any procedure, we’ll examine your teeth to identify the source of your dental problems. Some imperfections could be symptoms of other dental conditions, which may require another procedure to fix it.
During your first visit, Dr. Rice will discuss your goals and treatment options. Whether you need a dental implant, teeth whitening, or a full smile makeover, she’ll create a custom plan that meets your cosmetic dentistry needs.
A dental crown is like a “cap” used to restore a previously damaged tooth or cover a dental implant. Crowns help enhance the appearance of your tooth as it’s designed to match the shape, size, color, and strength of your natural teeth.
Dr. Rice will cement a natural-looking crown onto your tooth to protect it from further harm and to help improve the beauty of your smile. If you need to repair a broken tooth or protect one, ask us about our dental crowns at your next visit.
Our porcelain veneers help create a uniform appearance for your smile despite being affected by one or more dental imperfections. Veneers are custom-made, thin shells made of tooth-colored materials that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to revamp your appearance.
Each dental veneer is made to enhance the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth and help provide you with a picture-perfect smile. Learn more about our veneers process at your initial consultation.
Here at our Brentwood dental office, we also use dental fillings to restore the function and appearance of a tooth that’s been damaged by a cavity. Dr. Rice will remove the decay from your tooth, clean out the area, and fill the space with our tooth-colored material. A filling will help prevent future decay from occurring and help you maintain good oral health to avoid future complications.
Crooked, crowded, gapped, and misaligned teeth can detract from the beauty of your smile. Wearing traditional, metal braces can also have an impact on your appearance, which may be another reason why you haven’t decided to straighten out your teeth.
Here at Cool Springs Laser Dentistry, we use ClearCorrect aligners to help discreetly realign your teeth without the troubles and embarrassment of metal braces. Each tray is virtually invisible to onlookers and provides you with a customized, efficient solution. Ask Dr. Rice about ClearCorrect today.
Are you tired of living with stains on your teeth? We offer professional teeth whitening treatments that can whiten your teeth up to eight shades brighter in a single appointment. Our new Zoom! LED Whitening System uses quality whitening agents emitted at a lower strength so you experience little to no sensitivity. Each treatment is customized to your unique needs, providing you with a radiant smile.
A “gummy” smile or uneven gums along your teeth can make you feel self-conscious and discourage you from wanting to smile. We can remove any excess tissue with our gum recontouring procedure.
When you visit for your consultation, Dr. Rice will examine your smile and create a personalized treatment plan that will lengthen the appearance of your teeth and reshape your gum tissue. After completing this treatment, you’ll be eager to shine your smile with no hesitation.
