Saint Louis Cosmetic Dentist Explains How to Achieve Different Aesthetic Effects

Written by Dr. Grayem on Jul 28, 2015

Because every smile is unique, our dental team works to provide plenty of aesthetic options, so that we can match the patient to his or her ideal treatment.

In today’s short article, our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists are going to be explaining how we use various treatments in order to achieve cosmetic results. We hope that this information helps you feel more comfortable taking steps to improve your own smile!

Let’s start by talking about some of the dental treatments that deliver results in just one appointment:

Professional dental whitening: these dentist-administered whitening formulas lighten existing stains, and help to restore a smile’s brightness and luminosity. Many patients see visible results after just one whitening session.

Dental bonding: in just one appointment our dental team can cover problematic enamel, or damaged teeth, with natural looking dental resin. Once the resin has cured (hardened) the dental patient is able to resume his or her normal routine right away.

Dental enamel reshaping: if some of your teeth are misshapen, or have uneven edges, our dental team can smooth away imperfections buffing away irregular dental enamel.

Gum tissue contouring: using dental lasers, our dentist can refine uneven gum tissue borders, and eliminate overgrown oral tissues. This treatment can make your smile look more balanced and proportionate. As the laser goes to work, it actually seals the gum tissue that is alters, which promotes tissue healing. Consequently, there is very little post-treatment recovery time needed before the patient can get back into his or her daily routine.

As you can see, you have a number of excellent, and efficient, cosmetic treatments at your disposal. Our Saint Louis cosmetic dentists are happy to give you additional information. Just give us a call, or use our website to submit a question directly to our dental team.
