Saint Louis Cosmetic Dentist Helps Patients Understand the Possibilities of Cosmetic Dentistry

Written by Dr. Grayem on May 6, 2014

Ready to take your smile to the next level? Well our Saint Louis cosmetic dentist office is here to provide you with all of the cosmetic care that you need. Every patient is unique, so your exact aesthetic needs will likely vary from what other patients need. Today we’ll be talking about some general categories of cosmetic treatment. Review this list, think about what you envision for your smile, and then talk to you dentist about making your dream a reality.

First, think about whether you want to move any of your teeth (or use Lumineers to make it appear as though your teeth have moved). Common cosmetic complaints that fit into this category include:

· Teeth that are too far apart

· Teeth that are crowded

· Overbites

· Underbites

· Crossbites

· Smiles that are narrow (and thus do not fill all of the horizontal space in the mouth when the patient smiles)

Also consider whether you want to make any changes to your gum tissue.

· Simply treating periodontal disease will reduce redness and swelling in your gum tissue, as well as preventing bleeding gum tissue

· If you have overhanging gum tissue, or oddly shaped gum borders, our dental team can refine these to improve the appearance of your overall smile

The shade of your smile also makes a big difference. Our dental team provides treatments that lighten natural enamel, as well as dental restorations that cover stained teeth.

As you can see, there are many ways that our dental team can help you rejuvenate your smile. Our friendly dental team can give you more information about how each dental treatment works. Just call our Saint Louis cosmetic dentist office and schedule a personal consultation with our team—after we assess your smile we’ll be able to give you a better idea of what will be best for your dental health.
