When you are ready to improve the appearance of your smile, our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists are here to help you reach your goals! This article is all about the aesthetic and oral health issues that our team considers during the treatment process. Keep reading to learn more…

Begin With A Strong Foundation

As our team starts to build a customized treatment plan, we first prioritize an existing oral health issues that need to be addressed. We do this for two reasons:

  • Improving dental aesthetics without addressing dental health leaves your smile at risk to developing additional damage down the road.
  • Many common oral health problems can be effectively treated with oral health solutions that also transform dental aesthetics: for example, dental bonding, custom crowns, and porcelain veneers. 

Improve Proportions 

Another thing we keep in mind is how well-balanced and proportional your smile appears. Many people have over-sized or disproportionately small teeth. In these cases our team can use a combination of treatments—gum tissue reshaping, custom crowns, dental veneers, composite bonding—to create a harmonious overall effect.

Refresh And Whiten

Once the heavy lifting is done, it’s time for those finishing touches that take your smile to the next level. Tooth whitening treatments erase years of built-up stains, working to restore your teeth to their natural shades. And remember, if whitening gels aren’t right or effective for you, there are cosmetic treatments that resurface and cover your real enamel. 

Well-designed, personalized treatment give patients the results that they want without hassle, discomfort, or inconvenience. Our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists are happy to provide you with any additional information you may need. We look forward to speaking with you!
