Wear and tear take a toll on every part of your body, including your teeth. Luckily, refreshing your smile can be as simple as visiting your Franklin, KY, dentist, Dr. J. David Fowler, for a cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Cosmetic treatments that will help you look your best

  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a fast, effective and inexpensive way to renew your smile. Whitening only takes about one hour in the Franklin dental office and can give your smile a much-needed boost. Whitening results vary from person to person, but many people notice a three- to eight-shade difference after the treatment.
  • Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are hollow restorations that slide over teeth once they're reduced in size. Crowns restore the normal height and width of broken teeth, keep fragile teeth from breaking, and improve the appearance of discolored, short or oddly shaped teeth. Thanks to same-day crowns, you now only need one appointment to receive a dental crown.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign treatment subtly straightens your teeth with clear, removable aligner trays. The trays exert constant pressure on your teeth, slowly closing spaces, alleviating crowding, straightening crooked teeth, and correcting bite problems. You'll wear your trays for about 22 hours per day and will remove them to floss, brush, eat and drink.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Made of a thin layer of porcelain, veneers are designed to hide imperfections in the fronts of your teeth. The restorations conceal chips and cracks, improve the color of discolored teeth, make oddly shaped teeth look more uniform, lengthen teeth, close gaps and can even whiten your entire smile. Veneers are attached to the fronts of teeth with dental cement and may last 10 to 15 years or longer.
  • Dental Implants: Implants are the only restoration method that replaces missing teeth from the roots to the crowns. Tiny titanium posts known as implants are placed in your jawbone during minor oral surgery. Once inside your jawbone, the implants begin to bond to the bone. The bonded implants serve as the roots of your new teeth and are connected to dental crowns to restore the visible parts of teeth. Implants offer excellent biting power and can last your entire life with proper care.
