My Family Dentistry provides Knoxville with the highest level of care combined with the latest techniques and technologies. We offer state-of-the-art dental procedures for all of our patients, whether that means regular checkups, cavity fillings, implants, veneers, smile makeovers, or gum disease . We also screen every patient for oral cancer as part of the basic exam. Your continued dental health is our greatest concern, and we have the experience, skills, and knowledge to help you meet your goals.
Finding the right provider can be tricky, especially if you experience anxiety when going to the dentist. That’s why Dr. Wes Mullins and our team at My Family Dentistry practice “comfortable dentistry,” designed to provide a relaxing and stress-free experience every time you visit.
We offer a range of popular general and cosmetic dentistry services. Read more about them below.
My Family Dentistry is proud to provide white fillings, which look better and last longer than previous options. For years, silver/mercury fillings—called metal fillings or amalgams—were the standard.
Unlike amalgams, white fillings give more natural-looking results and can actually strengthen your teeth. Using these modern restorations can dramatically decrease tooth cracking and the need for root canal treatment.
We are also proud to provide high quality, custom dentures for patients who need them. One of the biggest complaints about dentures is that they can slip or remain loose even after fitting. If dentures or partials are part of your treatment, we’ll make the effort to ensure they look great and fit exactly right.
The benefits of properly aligned teeth go far beyond a confident smile. They include healthier teeth and gums, easier cleaning, and reduced risk of decay and gum disease. When teeth are properly aligned, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, allowing for a stronger defense against potential periodontal problems.
With Invisalign™ you can have straighter teeth in as little as 9 to 15 months. The best part is that no one will know you’re straightening your teeth, because that’s how the Invisalign system was designed. They’re clear and comfortable, with no wires or headgear. Invisalign is also easily removable, allowing you to eat and drink what you want, and making brushing and flossing easy.
Smile makeovers with porcelain veneers
If you have misshapen teeth, gaps, or deep discoloration, dental veneers may be the best solution for you. Dental veneers are thin covers made of tooth-colored ceramic, crafted to cover the front surface of the teeth to make them look more uniform and attractive. We use porcelain veneers because they resist stains better than old-fashioned resin veneers, and they’re much stronger.
Tooth whitening, re-contouring, bonding, and more!
Need more of a touchup than a full makeover? We also offer KöR Deep Bleaching™, which is the next stage in the evolution of teeth whitening. Instead of using harsh chemicals to bleach stains, the KöR process works by allowing oxygen to penetrate deep into the enamel of your teeth, dissolving the molecules that cause discoloration in the first place.
We also provide services like…
- Re-contouring: minor fillings that soften the edges of teeth, improving function and comfort
- Bonding: applying a thin plastic coating to your teeth to fill gaps, mask discoloration, or reshape teeth
Besides semi-annual checkups, cleanings, children’s dental evaluations, fillings, and other standard dental procedures, My Family Dentistry offers the full Dental Care Procedure. This additional dental service includes screening every patient for oral cancer during every exam.
Oral cancer can be painless in early stages and may not even be noticed by the patient. Often, the issue is only discovered when the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes of the neck, after which treatment becomes more complicated. That’s why early detection is so important.
Gum disease laser treatment
Our cutting-edge laser treatment for gum disease and near-painless root canals (yes, really!) mean that even those procedures can be done comfortably and with minimal recovery time.
Sleep apnea device
If you or your partner have trouble sleeping because of snoring and other symptoms of sleep apnea, you may benefit from sleep apnea devices like the Dental Crafters’ custom-fit Intraoral Snoring Therapy (IST) Appliance.
Comfort is essential to quality sleep, which is why the custom-fitted Dental Crafters’ appliance includes a telescoping stainless steel tube that allows you to open and close your mouth—and even move your jaw to the right and left—while maintaining the forward position of the jaw. This FDA-approved sleep apnea device is also very durable, and will even reduce damage from teeth grinding.
Your Teeth Today
For more than 30 years, dental implants have been used to replace damaged or missing teeth, but they require lengthy healing intervals before a replacement tooth can be placed. Recently, great advancements in oral surgery techniques and restorative dentistry have allowed patients to have failing teeth removed or missing teeth replaced with beautiful new teeth in just one day.
For most patients, these techniques allow Dr. Mullins and his team to effectively give you new teeth in a single day. Whether you have one or more teeth that need replacing, My Teeth Today™ can be used to immediately give you back the smile you have always wanted with natural-looking implants.
