Though one of the goals of all dental procedures, along with preserving overall health, is to enhance the appearance of a patient and ensure that they have a beautiful, friendly smile. The term ‘cosmetic dentistry’ is generally applied to dental work that is specifically intended to improve the look of someone’s teeth, gums, and overall attractiveness. Such work can include, but is not limited to, teeth whitening, removing enamel to reshape teeth, bonding ceramic composites to a tooth’s surface, applying dental bridges, otherwise known as ‘false teeth’, to an area with significant tooth loss, bonding porcelain or composite veneers to the surface of damaged or unhealthy teeth, and using gum lifts that reshape the natural gum line. Though cosmetic dentistry often involved utilizing metals like gold to reshape teeth in the past, technological advances now allow for the application of porcelain and composite materials that give a smile a natural, healthy, and appropriately colored look.
Whether they’re looking forward to having the rough edges of a tooth smoothed over in a way that seamlessly blends in with the rest of their mouth, eager to have discolored or damaged teeth covered by a veneer, or simply looking to have what is now a yellow or brownish smile transformed back to pristine white, anyone in search of a dentist in Murfreesboro, TN should feel free to contact our offices.

Did you know that the better you look the more confident you feel?
It’s no secret that, when your smile is radiant, when your teeth are straight and white, when your facial appearance is attractive, you can create a welcoming first impression. The “million-dollar smile” can be taken literally–in that it can translate to a better paying career.
Recent research shows a connection between how much is in your paycheck and your appearance. A study released by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis found that more attractive people earned five percent more an hour than their less good-looking counterparts!
It may not be fair, but it’s a fact.
Just about everybody would agree that a dazzling smile is an important social asset, according to the results of a survey conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. By the same token, 74 percent of those surveyed said an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances for career success.
