If you are unhappy with the way that your smile currently looks, don’t despair our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists offer the treatments you need to reclaim an attractive smile. Today we’ll be talking about some of the cosmetic changes that we can help you achieve.

Whiter Teeth

Young dental enamel is naturally more luminous and white than older enamel. This is because teeth collect stains over time, and dental enamel thins as at ages—making the dental surface appear darker. The good news is that our dental team can make your smile look years younger using professional dental whitening treatments, dental bonding, and/or LUMINEERS.

Blemish-free Enamel

Cracks and chips in your teeth can also mar your smile. If you have minor dental damage, our dentists are here to help you correct these issues to improve the aesthetics and the functionality of your smile. We can patch small cracks and chips using dental resin—this process is called dental bonding. WE can also cover damaged enamel with porcelain LUMINEERS. Both of these treatment options deliver sturdy, natural looking results.

Attractively Aligned Smile

If have teeth that are misaligned—crooked, crowded, or unevenly spaced—our dental team is here to help you achieve a more seamless and straight smile. We’ll assess the extent of your dental misalignment, and then perfect your smile using dental bonding or LUMINEERS. Using these two treatments we can deliver dramatic, visible results in just a few dental appointments.

The best way to figure out which treatments might be right for you is to schedule consultation with our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists. There are many factors that go into choosing a cosmetic treatment—we’ll help you weigh the pros and cons of all of your options. Give us a call, we look forward to helping you discover your dream smile!

If you lose a tooth, you want to know that you’ll be able to find a tooth replacement solution that fits your lifestyle, budget, timeline, and dental goals. That’s why our Saint Louis dental implant dental office offers so many replacement tooth options for patients today. From dentures, to bridges, to dental implants, you’ll be able to find a tooth replacement treatment that works for you—and you wont have to live with that hole in your smile forever.

 

Now dental implants have revolutionized the dental world, because they are the first replacement tooth option that looks and feels like a natural tooth. Dental implants are anchored into the jawbone with small titanium screws, and then capped with natural looking restorations. Over time the titanium bonds to the natural bone, forming a tooth root similar to a patient’s natural tooth root.

 

Dental implants are a great tooth replacement option for anywhere from one tooth to an entire smile. If, however, you already have dentures or bridgework that you’re pleased with, you can actually use dental implants to enhance your existing replacement teeth.

 

Dental implants can be strategically placed along the gumline to anchor bridges or dentures. With a few dental implants, you’ll find that your dentures/bridges feel more stable in your mouth, and are more natural to wear. Additionally, dental implants can help take the strain off of your existing natural teeth, as without the dental implants, your natural teeth would still be responsible for holding the dentures or bridges in place.

 

Dental implants don’t need to replace dentures or bridges, they can actually be used with them to increase functionality and appearance. If you already have dentures that you love, they can most likely be retrofitted to work with dental implants.

Many times, when patients think of having a “pleasing smile” they think about how their smile will look—for example, having white, straight teeth. But equally important to the appearance of your mouth is the smell of your mouth. If you have persistent bad breath, you’ll probably find that you don’t like to get close to people, laughing, smiling, or talking.

 

If you’ve been suffering from bad breath, don’t be embarrassed; this is actually a common problem among adults. The important thing to know is that you have treatment options that can help freshen your breath and give you the confidence you need to interact with people.

 

Obviously certain foods like garlic, onions, and seafood can give your breath a strong odor. But most chronic bad breath is actually caused by malodorous bacteria in the mouth. This is the same bacteria that you can minimize by brushing and flossing regularly. You can also eliminate oral bacteria by using a mouthwash morning and night. Mouthwash will help you kill the bacteria you missed brushing and flossing, plus most mouthwashes have a pleasant scent to freshen breath beyond brushing and flossing.

 

Another important thing to do in order to keep fresh smelling breath is to maximize healthy saliva production. If you skip meals, or don’t drink enough water through the day, you may find that your mouth gets very dry. Because saliva naturally neutralizes acid, it’s important to keep your saliva production up by eating and drinking water in order to freshen breath.

 

These simple at-home tips, when used in conjunction with professional dental cleanings, can make a world of difference in your dental health. Give our Saint Louis dental office a call for more information or to schedule a consultation for a personalized evaluation of your oral health.
