Your smile is an integral part of your appearance; you want it to make a positive impression, and represent you well.
If you are unhappy with the current state of your smile, please know that you are not alone! Many people contact our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists looking to achieve smile transformations. We are here to help you evaluate your treatment options, so that you can ultimately decide which aesthetic solution meets all of your needs.
One of the things that you want to consider when exploring your options is your ideal treatment timeline. If you need to achieve results quickly, you may benefit from professional dental whitening, dental bonding, and/or porcelain veneers. When you meet with our dental team, let them know if you are on a deadline for a special event like a wedding or reunion. We’ll work within your timeframe!
It’s also worth noting that different aesthetic solutions require different types and levels of post-treatment maintenance. Professional whitening treatments, for example, will need to be repeated bi-annually or annually in order to maintain bright, white enamel. On the other hand, porcelain veneers are naturally stain resistant, so these restorations will continue to look bright and fresh for years to come.
Another obvious consideration is budget. We offer treatment options to fit a number of different budgets, so that cosmetic treatment is never out of reach. Professional whitening is a very affordable way to refresh natural teeth. In order to achieve a more dramatic smile transformation you may look into dental bonding or porcelain veneer; with dental bonding being the more affordable of these two options.
The key to successful cosmetic treatment is really to weigh all these different treatment factors, and to give them their appropriate weight. The best way to get started is to contact our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists to schedule a personal consultation.
