Whether you’re having an interview for your dream job or going on a blind date, first impressions are everything. One of the things someone will notice about you when meeting for the first time is your smile. In order to make that good first impression, having a straight, beautiful smile is the key to your success. Studies have shown that people who smile more often are perceived as more confident, approachable and trustworthy. Although looks aren’t everything, having a great smile will give you a greater chance at success with interpersonal and professional relationships. Few people naturally have a perfect smile, but through the cosmetic dentistry offered at Tusculum Dental Care, a great-looking smile is within reach for almost anyone. Continue reading below to learn more about how we can enhance and transform your smile through cosmetic dentistry to help you make a great first impression.

How do I brighten my teeth?

Seeking a whiter, brighter smile is a common aesthetic desire, and many people try to use at-home treatments to achieve their goals. However, it is best to leave these treatments to professionals you can trust. Over-the-counter whitening kits can cause heightened tooth sensitivity, and they don’t last as long. A more cost effective and safer option is to receive a professional dental whitening treatment from experienced cosmetic dentists like the ones at Tusculum Dental Care. Your cosmetic dentist in Greeneville works with whitening agents that are more powerful than any store-bought option and, because your treatment is being overseen by an experienced dentist, you have far less likelihood of heightened sensitivity. A professional whitening treatment takes less than an hour to complete.

What if I have crooked or gapped teeth?

Having crooked teeth or gaps in your teeth can cause insecurity about your smile, and it can also cause oral health problems because crooked teeth are harder to clean. Luckily, there are multiple procedures that Tusculum Dental Care can perform to address these issues. For crooked teeth, Tusculum Dental Care offers orthodontic treatment through both braces and Invisalign. For gapped teeth, both cosmetic bonding and veneers can solve your problem.

What if I want to replace missing teeth?

If you’re one of the millions of Americans living with at least one missing permanent tooth, it’s important to replace it and restore your smile. If you have multiple lost teeth that were next to one another in the mouth, they can be replaced with a bridge. If you’d like a more permanent solution, we also offer dental implants. Finally, if you have multiple lost teeth, you can get the All-on-4 implant system.

What if I have chipped or broken teeth?

Living with broken teeth can cause a great deal of insecurity, but lead to severe damage to your gums and bone structure. Tusculum Dental Care can provide multiple services to fix these concerns, including cosmetic bonding, veneers and a crown, which replaces the exterior of the tooth while protecting the interior structure.

What about my gums?

Your gums are an essential part of your smile. If your gums sit too high on your teeth, it can cause an awkward gummy smile that will make your teeth look disproportionate. If your gums sit too low, you may be suffering from receding gums, which can expose your tooth roots to damage. With their state-of-the-art laser gum recontouring, you can get your gum line reshaped with minimal bleeding, discomfort, and risk of infection. This service offers results lightning fast, no scalpel required.
