For patients experiencing chipped, broken or missing teeth, cosmetic dentistry procedures are more than just an aesthetic step. Instead, they are a confidence and self-esteem booster that means patients can once again show their smile without fear or concern. At the Nashvillle, TN dental office of Joseph P. Wiggs, DDS, Dr. Wiggs knows that a smile is closely linked with a person's self-esteem. That's why he offers a variety of cosmetic dentistry services that not only help a patient look good, but feel good as well.
Examples of cosmetic treatments offered at Dr. Wiggs’ Nashville dentist’s office include:
• Composite (tooth-colored) fillings
• Dental implant restorations

What is a No-Amalgam Dental Office?
Amalgam is a combination of metals that is melted and traditionally used to fill cavities and create onlays and inlays. As a no-amalgam office, Dr. Wiggs does not use metal fillings. Instead, Dr. Wigg’s Nashville cosmetic dentistry office uses tooth-colored composite material. His commitment to beautiful and durable cosmetic treatments ensures you and your dentist are the only people who will know you’ve have a tooth filled or otherwise corrected.
If you currently have amalgam fillings, Dr. Wiggs can replace these fillings with composite, or tooth-colored, fillings. Dr. Wiggs uses this same composite resin to create:
Treatment with tooth-colored material makes your smile appear as natural and luminous as possible.
