Improving Your Education
We like our patients to understand their own dental health as clearly as possible, since this allows them to make informed decisions about their own care. Please feel free to browse through any of the following educational topics, and call our Bowling Green dental office if you need more information!
A Whole New Reason to Smile
Although most people would like to smile with confidence, knowing their teeth are white, shiny, and healthy looking, most people's teeth are also prone to discoloration over time. Aging, drinking coffee or tea, and using tobacco are some of the top culprits behind this.

Restoring a Shapely Smile
Simple Steps, Dramatic Results
Chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or even slightly crooked front teeth can cause people not to smile. And that's no way to live! Fortunately, we have a couple of simple ways to restore such teeth, giving you an entirely new-looking, long-lasting expression of confidence and happiness: either with composite resin bonding or applying porcelain veneers.

We Find Decay the Easy Way
One of the most important things we do for our patients is identify and fill cavities. Since even the smallest spot of decay can threaten the integrity of the entire tooth, finding and filling cavities is the key to preventing further problems of all kinds.

A Restoration with a Solid Foundation
Tooth Root Substitutes
Sometimes, people lose permanent teeth due to accident, injury, disease or extraction. In such cases, we find dental implants to be a secure, functional replacement option. They're superior to many other replacement choices because they actually restore comfort and beauty, while also remaining functional for the long run.

Root Canal Therapy: Easy Does It
Your teeth contain several layers: the outer protective enamel, a secondary layer of dentin, and an inner soft 'pulp' tissue layer. This inner pulp "chamber" contains your tooth's nerves, veins, arteries and lymph vessels--all of which function to keep your tooth alive and well.
