John M. Beasley Family Dentistry offers preventive, restorative, and general dentistry services to patients in Lawrenceburg, TN, and surrounding areas. For four decades, our dentist and team have helped patients of all ages achieve the smiles they have always wanted.
Brushing and flossing are great, but they aren’t enough to protect you from gum disease, decay, or other problems. Regular dental exams, usually performed every six months, allow our hygienists and dentist to check your teeth, gums, and soft tissues of the mouth. Catching oral health problems early means we can treat them early — and that means nipping issues in the bud.
Dental Cleanings & Evaluations
Your regular visits to our office also include professional dental cleanings, including removing tartar and plaque buildup before it causes serious gum issues. We also offer oral cancer screenings and periodically take digital x-rays to visualize what we can’t see during an exam.
Healthy gums have been shown to help prevent heart attacks and stroke.
Preventive services also include sealants for kids. Sealants are applied to the chewing surface of the teeth and help seal out plaque and food. Sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80% in molars!
Restorative & General Dentistry
Restoring your teeth to normal function is a very important part of our jobs. This includes fillings, dental crowns, dentures, and other procedures to repair problems including decay, missing teeth, loss of tooth structure, and more.
For procedures that used to require messy molds, we use a technologically advanced intraoral camera. We will take computer images rather than subject you to the molding process!
If you have a dental implant that has a loose, broken, or lost crown, Dr. Beasley can restore your implant to full function. Please bring your crown with you if it is has come off!
We also perform extractions. There are times that require a tooth to be pulled, either due to extensive decay, injury, or not fitting into the jaw. Ask us about wisdom tooth removal!
A dental bridge is utilized when tooth loss occurs due to decay, gum disease, or injury. The bridge closes gaps between teeth and looks and acts like a natural tooth. Dental bridges are permanently cemented to adjacent teeth and will help to maintain the position of your remaining teeth.
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the teeth to enhance the look of chipped, stained, or broken teeth.
When you are missing teeth, dentures are used to restore the functionality and health of your mouth and teeth. Dentures can help restore your confidence in your smile!
Over time, coffee, smoking, tea, and other factors can cause tooth discoloration. With professional teeth whitening, you can help reverse the effects of this discoloration, leaving you with a smile you are proud to show off.
