Germantown TN Dentist
If you are unhappy with the look of your smile, you will want to visit us at Dove Family Dentistry. Our two expert cosmetic dentists, Dr. Joseph Dove and Dr. Anthony Polk, are able to provide you with different treatments for a more beautiful smile. Our Germantown TN dentist can provide you with teeth whitening, veneers, and other cosmetic dental options.
Many patients come to see our Germantown TN dentist for teeth whitening. We are happy to offer patients take-home kits for teeth whitening and bleaching. We find that our patients enjoy being able to have their teeth whitened in the comfort of their own home, at their own convenience. This way, patients are also able to more tightly control the amount of tooth whitening and brightening that their teeth will receive. When patients have reached their desired level of tooth whitening, they simply stop using the kit. Many patients also come to see us with other types of cosmetic smile problems. When a smile problem is purely cosmetic, it can often be corrected using veneers. Dental veneers are thin shells which are made of porcelain, and are made to permanently attach to the front of the tooth. A patient may need one or several porcelain veneers to have the desired cosmetic tooth correction. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, but extremely strong, and last for many years. Porcelain veneers can generally be applied to the patients’ teeth without the need for any type of local anesthesia. Porcelain veneers can be used to correct many cosmetic tooth problems including: teeth that are too short; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are chipped; teeth with surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are seriously discolored but cannot be corrected using dental whitening methods; and many other types of cosmetic teeth problems. Our dentist will assess your individual situation and let you know if porcelain veneers can be used to give you the beautiful smile you desire.

If you want to make sure that you have healthy gums, you will need to make sure that your teeth stay clean. Most often, gum disease is caused by plaque and tartar which builds up on teeth. Even with the most diligent at home dental care, some plaque will remain on teeth. Additionally, tartar is a hard and mineralized substance which tightly adheres to teeth; it can only be removed by a professional dental cleaning. So, it is important to not only clean your teeth at home, but also to come in to our Memphis dental office for professional dental cleanings – that is, if you want to have healthy teeth and gums.
At Dove Family Dentistry, we stress the importance of preventive dental care. Our two top-notch dentists are Dr. Joseph Dove and Dr. Anthony Polk. We hope that our patients all come in for teeth cleanings on a periodic basis, generally every six months. This will help ensure that our patients’ gums stay healthy. If gums develop gum disease, the infection can travel down to the jawbone and cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. Gum disease can also spread to other parts of your mouth, or the infection can travel through your bloodstream and reach other parts of your body. Dumb disease has been associated with heart disease and high blood pressure as well, as with other serious medical problems. It is very important to make sure that you do not develop gum disease, and if you do that it is treated in a quick and effective manner. At our Memphis dental office, we help our patients avoid gum disease by encouraging them to have periodic dental cleanings.
At our Memphis dental office, our dentist may discover that you have gingivitis or advance gum disease. Gingivitis is a precursor to gum disease, and can easily be treated by having several dental cleanings over the following months to make sure that your gums return to good health. Dental cleanings will also help ensure that you do not develop dental cavities as all tartar and plaque is removed at this time. Gingivitis can be discovered during a dental cleaning, or during a comprehensive dental exam. If tartar or plaque are allowed to stay on teeth for an extended amount of time, you may have deep pockets form between your teeth and gums. At this point you will have gum disease which needs to be treated by a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment.
