Our Saint Louis Cosmetic Dentist Discusses Aesthetic Upgrades Available To Patients

Written by Dr. Grayem on Jan 19, 2021

How you do feel when you look at your smile in the mirror? Confident? Attractive? Or maybe disappointed? Or frustrated?

Our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists are here to help all of our patients develop positive associations when they see their smiles. And achieving attractive aesthetic results may be easier than you think…

Kiss Damage Goodbye

The first step in any treatment process is to correct existing dental damage, so that it does not spread and become more severe. In many cases, oral health issues and aesthetic problems can be treated concurrently, with the same solution. Personalized restorations, for example, repair damaged teeth while making them look whole and healthy.

Improve Alignment

Another common aesthetic goal among patients of all ages is a straight and seamless smile. Whether you are dealing with crowded teeth, bite irregularities, or large gaps in your smile, there are treatments available to help your smile appear straight and seamless. Orthodontic treatment, for example, moves your teeth over a period of time, while options like veneers cover visible enamel in order to resurface your smile.

Brighten And Whiten

Because healthy, young teeth are white and shiny, we associate luminous dental enamel with youth. If your teeth are looking dull, or if they have developed stains from foods, drinks, and tobacco products, now is the time to refresh your smile. Topical professional whitening treatments lift stains from your teeth, but you could alternatively choose to cover unattractive enamel with porcelain or composite restorations. 

If you are unhappy with the current state of your smile for any reason, our Saint Louis dentists are here to help. You can always contact our team by giving us a call, or by using the Contact Us form on our website. You don’t have to live with an unattractive smile forever, and you don’t have to go through the treatment process alone!
