Many patients know that they can whiten their dental enamel and straighten the appearance of their teeth, but they think that, no matter what, they are stuck with the current sizes of their teeth. The truth is, however, that there are cosmetic treatments that can make your teeth appear better proportioned and sized. One of those treatment options is LUMINEERS. Our Saint Louis LUMINEERS dentists have helped numerous patients achieve stunning smiles with this treatment.
If you find that your teeth look too narrow or too short, you have probably noticed that this can make your entire smile seem uneven and unbalanced. It is often easy to bring the smile into better harmony with just a few alterations to the sizes of your teeth.
If one or multiple of your teeth are too short, our dentist can craft a LUMINEER that extends past your natural enamel, and makes your tooth appear longer. This can help to close gaps between top and bottom teeth, in spots where your natural teeth are not long enough to fit together.
Narrow teeth can likewise be altered to appear wider and more substantial. Widening your LUMINEERS is also a way to close gaps between your teeth—giving your smile a seamless appearance. How much wider we need to make your LUMINEERS will depend on how many teeth you are treating with LUMINEERS and the extent of your dental spacing.
Many patients choose to use LUMINEERS for these cosmetic issues because our dentist can place LUMINEERS in just a few dental appointments. This is a fast, non-invasive, and convenient way to transform your smile in a short period of time.

If you are starting to notice some aesthetic problems with your smile, our Saint Louis cosmetic dentist office can help. We offer a wide range of treatments to help you rejuvenate your smile and enjoy fresh, young-looking teeth again. Today we are talking about the cosmetic treatment of dental bonding. Read on to learn more about how this treatment works.
Q: How does dental bonding improve the appearance of my tooth?
A: The dental bonding process involves applying dental resin to the affected tooth in order to improve the appearance or structure of the tooth. Dental resin—shaded to match your natural tooth shade—is applied to your tooth and then cured. Once the resin has set, you are good to go with a fresh and clean looking smile!
Q: How long does it take to complete the dental bonding process?
A: The entire dental bonding process can usually be completed in just one dental visit. Many patients choose dental bonding specifically because it is fast and efficient.
Q: What can dental bonding do? Is it right for me?
A: Our dentist can help you determine whether dental bonding is right for you when we see you at your first appointment. Dental bonding is often used to close gaps between teeth, give teeth more pleasing and proportional shapes, lighten dark dental enamel, and repair cracks and chips in teeth. If you want to fix any of those common dental problems, dental bonding may be the best option for you!
You can keep your smile sparkling and healthy with simple dental bonding treatments. Our Saint Louis cosmetic dentist office is here to walk you through the process and help you decide whether dental bonding is right for your specific needs. Feel free to give our office a call to get started today!
Do your teeth need a little refreshing and rejuvenation? Whether you want to straighten crooked teeth or lighten dull dental enamel, dental LUMINEERS may be able to help you reach your goals. Today our Saint Louis LUMINEERS dentists are talking about the different cosmetic problems that our office corrects with LUMINEERS. Do you see yourself on this list?
Most patients think that they need to go through orthodontic treatment in order to straighten the appearance of their teeth—not so! LUMINEERS can be used to resurface your misaligned teeth, making your entire smile appear straight.
Dull or Stained Dental Enamel
LUMINEERS can also be used to lighten the appearance of a dark or discolored smile. If conventional teeth whitening treatments are not effective for your teeth, you may want to use LUMINEERS to cover dark enamel—your smile will appear white and luminous again.
Damaged Dental Enamel
LUMINEERS are often used to cover damaged dental enamel. Small cracks and chips in your teeth can make your smile appear worn and old. Because LUMINEERS completely cover the enamel surface, they hide dental damage very well.
Gaps Between Teeth
You could use orthodontic treatment to close gaps between your teeth. However, many patients prefer to close these gaps with LUMINEERS, because this treatment delivers results much faster than orthodontic treatment.
If you have one, or multiple, of these problems, LUMINEERS may be able to help you get the perfected smile you want. One advantage of LUMINEERS over other individual treatments—such as teeth whitening and orthodontic treatment—is that, as a patient, you can save time and money by fixing multiple cosmetic problems at once with LUMINEERS.
