Attention!!! - Dear valued patients,

Our government has been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus.
At this time we are closed but will see emergency patients. If you are unsure if you have a dental emergency you can email a picture of the area in question with a description of your concerns and we will reply within 24 business hours.

If you are requesting a prescription or prescription refill you must provide the pharmacy phone number, your full name, date of birth, allergies and a working phone number in case we need to contact you via phone.

If you are currently completing Invisalign treatment we are advising patients to wear your current aligner until we reopen.

In order to keep social distancing, we are asking patients to call upon arrival of your emergency appointment. If we are not updating your information you will be asked to remain in your vehicle until a treatment room is ready for you. Accompanying individuals will not be allowed to wait in the waiting area. Please call or email us with any questions or special circumstances.

In the next few days, we will be reaching out to our patients to reschedule cleanings and non-emergent treatment. You may also contact us to reschedule your appointment via email at

This is a very difficult decision, but as a part of the healthcare community and the community at large, we have to protect the safety of our patients and the team.

Thank you for your support and we hope each and every one of you remain safe during this time.

Cosmetic Veneers and Dental Crowns

Pearly White Smile

Beautify your smile with cosmetic veneers and dental crowns from Franklin area dentists

Cosmetic veneers and dental crowns are two very popular smile enhancement treatments at K&E Advanced Dentistry in Franklin.

Cosmetic veneers

Cosmetic veneers are made of a hard porcelain material that beautifully mimics natural teeth. The choice to have veneers placed requires a consultation with one of our dentists to discuss the treatment and see if veneers are a good option for you. They require less tooth removal than a traditional crown, largely keeping your own tooth structure intact.

Your teeth are minimally prepared for veneers. Then the veneers are created at a professional lab. You return in about a two weeks to have them placed. A special light is used to activate the bonding agent to ensure good adhesion to the teeth. Your dentist will recommend a night guard to protect the veneers if you clench and grind your teeth at night. A follow up visit is highly recommended, to allow the dentist to see how your mouth is adapting to the veneers.

Wafer thin veneers cover the teeth to:

  • Make them look straighter.
  • Lengthen the teeth.
  • Close spaces.
  • Cover twisted, misshapen, or smaller teeth.
  • Cover dark or stained teeth that are resistant to whitening.

Dental crowns

A dental crown is “cap” that is placed over a tooth. Its purpose is to restore size, shape, and strength, and possibly to improve the appearance of the existing tooth, as well.

Getting a crown is generally a two office visit procedure. The first appointment is to prepare the tooth, take impressions, and have a temporary crown placed. At the second visit, roughly three to four weeks later, the permanent crown is placed.

A crown may be needed for a number of reasons:

  • Restore a broken tooth or one that is severely worn.
  • Protect a weakened tooth from breakage, or to hold parts of a cracked tooth together.
  • Cover and protect a tooth that contains a large filling, or a tooth that has had root canal therapy.
  • Restore severely discolored or misshapen teeth.
  • Restore a dental implant.
  • Hold a bridge in place.

We currently offer these types of crowns:

  • Zirconia – metal free, very strong, excellent esthetics.
  • Porcelain fused to noble metal – very strong, used mostly on posterior (back) teeth.
  • Gold – all metal, the strongest of all crowns.

Call our office in Franklin at (855) 912-7677, to schedule an appointment, or to learn more about cosmetic veneers and dental crowns.

I am guilty of avoiding the dentist, until I started going to Advanced Dentistry. They make me feel good about my dental health and I love getting compliments about my teeth.
