Same Day Crowns
Using computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), crowns can be made in one office visit while the patient waits. After taking a digital scan of the mouth using an intraoral camera, the computer produces a 3-D image of the teeth and gums and suggests the ideal dimensions of the needed crown. The dentist fine-tunes the virtual restoration and a "milling" machine carves the crown out of a ceramic block, ready to be bonded to the patient's tooth. The entire process takes less than two hours.More information
Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information
Dental implants provide a comfortable, permanent solution to lost teeth. The dental replacements are attached to titanium posts that actually fuse to your jawbone and become natural anchors, so your new teeth will remain securely in place without the need for messy adhesives. A fully restored smile is as healthy as it is beautiful by promoting bone growth and reducing the risk of receding gums.More information

The Dental Services We Provide
Corrective Dental Procedures
Are you unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth? We encourage you to call us at 901-309-6821 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures like Invisalign® clear aligners. Our team will work with you to determine what method works best for your lifestyle and dental needs. Invisalign treatment is a wonderful option for working adults because it produces similar results to traditional metal braces, but utilizes a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are virtually invisible. You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious. Make Great Southern Smiles your home for Invisalign clear aligners in Germantown!
Regardless of how meticulous we are about our oral health care, unforeseen situations can result in damaged enamel, cavities, gum disease, or even bone loss. Whether the cause is physical trauma or untreated decay, we will work with you to find the dental treatment option that is perfectly suited to your individual oral health needs.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
We recommend that you visit us at least twice a year for a regular check-up and professional teeth cleaning. A professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home just can't handle. Professionally eliminating this build-up of plaque and tartar helps to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The best dental care we can provide for you is preventative care. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning prevent small problems from becoming more complex and difficult to treat.
Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or simply getting older. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at Great Southern Smiles can restore the brilliance of your smile. The Zoom! teeth whitening method has a proven track record of dramatically improving the whiteness of your smile by up to six shades in a very short amount of time.
Innovative Technology for Dental Care
Here at Great Southern Smiles, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, at Great Southern Smiles we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution dental images that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, gum disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.
