Dental Crowns & Bridges
If you have damaged teeth, decayed teeth, or teeth that are missing altogether, a custom crown and/or bridge can provide the restored support and strength you’ve been sorely missing. All-ceramic options are available as well for more lifelike results!
Root Canal Therapy
When untreated decay is allowed to spread all the way down to the inner, vulnerable pulp of a tooth, root canal therapy becomes the last option for restoring health and avoiding extraction. This service will involve our doctors carefully accessing the canals and cleaning out bacteria there in a thorough fashion, followed by the application of a filling to seal the space shut and prevent the risk of further infection. In most cases, the placement of a new dental crown is recommended to protect and strengthen the tooth. Root canal therapy may also be necessary for patients from Lyndon, KY and surrounding areas with damaged nerves caused by dental trauma.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are the last permanent teeth to emerge in your smile, and they have the tendency to bring potentially serious problems with them, such as:
- Higher risks of gum disease and general infection
- Partial/misaligned eruptions
- Chronic pain
In these cases, extracting one or more wisdom teeth may be necessary to preserve our valued patients’ oral health and overall wellbeing. At Bell Dental, you can rest assured that our team will handle this procedure as smoothly and comfortably as possible.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures have been the go-to tooth replacement method for hundreds of years now, and today, their cost-effective nature and general reliability is still attractive to many patients in need of extensive restoration. Full models can restore an entire arch of teeth, while partials replicate certain teeth to fit alongside natural teeth on the same arch. Both options are designed to be removable, which allows for easy cleaning and comfortable storage while sleeping.
Are you feeling dissatisfied with your current denture? Implant-retained prosthetics are also available at Bell Dental for a sturdier, more permanent reconstructive solution.

Virtually everyone will experience a cavity at one point or another in their lives, and in turn, they’ll need to have a filling placed to restore the damaged area’s health and structure. Instead of relying on traditional amalgam fillings that stand out noticeably against natural enamel, St. Matthews patients can find a much-improved treatment option at Bell Dental – tooth-colored fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are made of quality composite resin, and they can be shaded and sculpted to compliment your original smile to a tee. Additional advantages include:
- Placing a tooth-colored filling doesn’t require as much removal of healthy structure when compared to traditional materials, making them more conservative.
- Sensitivity to temperature is significantly lessened.
- There are no metallic materials present in tooth-colored fillings, which means they’re ideal for patients with related allergies.
- They can last for 15 years or longer with appropriate care and maintenance.
