Brighten and Lighten Dental Discoloration With Help From Our Saint Louis Dentists

Written by Dr. Grayem on Nov 8, 2015

One of the fastest and simplest things that you can do in order to improve the appearance of your smile is to lighten your teeth. The truth is that stained and dull teeth simply look older than fresh, white teeth. If your smile is discolored, it may be making you look years older than you really are, and than you need/want to look.

That’s where our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists can come in and help. Because we understand that the whiteness and brightness of a patient’s smile is such a big issue, we offer a number of different treatments that can help you brighten your smile.

The fastest, simplest way for many people to lighten their smiles is by using professional dental whitening treatments. Whitening treatments minimize stains on the patients’ teeth. Our dentist applies a whitening gel to the enamel surface, and this gel goes to work lifting discoloration from the tooth.

Whitening treatments can deliver exceptional results after just one or two sessions. Plus, this treatment is totally non-invasive and comfortable. Consequently, whitening treatments work well for a number of different types of dental patients.

However, not all teeth are effectively whitened with gels. For those patients with hard to treat staining, or those patients with textural irregularities in their enamel, our dental team offers treatments that resurface discolored/unsightly teeth.

Using porcelain Lumineers our dentist can cover, and thus refinish, dark or dull teeth. We can also use dental resin to cover natural enamel—this treatment option is called dental bonding.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways that our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists can help to restore your smile’s brightness and luminosity. You don’t have to keep living with a dull and discolored smile. Just give our office a call to start rejuvenating your smile right away.
