Preventative care includes things like exams, cleanings, and x-rays. Since these are considered necessary steps toward preventing costly dental problems, they’re usually covered 100% by a dental plan or with a small co-payment per visit.
Sometimes preventative care doesn’t keep your smile where it needs to be. General Dentistry includes an array of procedures such as fillings, crowns, root canals, extractions and more that help to keep your smile as healthy as possible for years to come.

Cosmetic dentistry can help improve your quality of life, restoring confidence and dental health. Cosmetic procedures include crowns, veneers, whiting and more. Most cosmetic dental concerns are caused by underlying health or functional problems.

Recently I was seen in the office for a broken crown. I called and they got me in that day and Dr. Tinsley was able to also fix it the same day! I was so impressed with the office, I’ve already scheduled appointments to bring my children in for their cleanings and check ups.
I had a great experience at this office! After a dental emergency, Dr Rusher saw me immediately and corrected my issue that day. The staff was very professional and friendly. I will be recommending Bardstown Road Dental to all my friends and family.
A Crown is important to protect a week tooth from decay to break or to hold a tooth together. A bridge is use to replace missing teeth making it easier to eat and speak properly.
Full dentures are used to replace all of the upper or lower teeth. They can either be fixed or removable. Fixed dentures are anchored by DENTAL IMPLANTS. This type of restoration provides an excellent and long term solution with no chance of slippage.
Teeth whitening can provide a fresh, white smile and address stains and discoloration that are the result of age and lifestyle habits, including the use of tetracycline as a child.
