Patient-Focused Dental Care
Whether you need a check-up, have a toothache, need a dental cleaning, a crown, oral hygiene education for you or your children, or are considering a smile makeover or a second opinion, our Nashville dentist Dr. Kristin Rushing is here to serve you.
We start first by listening to your concerns and requests. After a thorough exam we work together to create a treatment plan that focuses on your needs, desires, and keeping or restoring your teeth for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Our Nashville general dentistry services include cosmetic resin fillings, metal-free dental crowns, and we leverage modern dental technology such as digital x-rays and records as well as a laser cavity detector so that we can find and address issues when they are small. By correcting small cavities before they cause toothaches treatment is quicker, easier, and not as costly. We strive to preserve as much as your natural tooth as possible!
Keeping Nashville Smiles Beautiful
In our South Nashville dental office, we use tooth colored dental fillings that are color matched to your teeth so your smile will always look its best. The older metal or silver amalgam dental fillings can put stress on teeth. When the tooth is weak or has a cavity it can result in a broken tooth. Newer dental filling materials allow for white or tooth colored fillings that form a bond with the enamel that does not put the same stress on the tooth. We can help you with teeth whitening as well as other options to help whiten and brighten your smile, too.
Fixing Broken or Damaged Teeth
Our Nashville Dentists will evaluate the best way to restore a damaged or broken tooth for years of function. When a tooth has broken sometimes a crown is best option to preserve the integrity of the tooth for years to come. We can help with a variety of restorative and cosmetic dentistry options. If a cavity is deep and affecting the nerve a root canal may be needed. Our goal is to help you keep your teeth for a lifetime, but sometimes that is not possible. When a tooth is badly broken and abscessed, sometimes an extraction is the only option. When that happens, we are available to consult on options to replace a missing tooth.
