Saint Louis Dentist Explains How We Combine Treatments For Optimal Results

Written by Dr. Grayem on May 3, 2016

Many patients who are working to achieve total smile transformations find that they will see the best results by combining certain treatments. Our Saint Louis dentists offer a wide variety of treatments in our office, so that you really can take care of all of your dental needs right here in our comprehensive dental office.

Today we will be reviewing some of the common treatment combinations that we use to help patients. Let’s get started!

First of all, it is very simple to combine professional whitening treatments with virtually any other cosmetic treatment. If you are using dental bonding or dental veneers, for example, to improve the appearance of a few teeth, you can use professional whitening treatments to lighten your visible natural teeth. Keep in mind that it is best to undergo professional whitening first, so that our team can ensure that your restorations match your post-whitening enamel.

If you are dealing with existing dental damage, you may benefit from combining dental bonding and veneer’s treatment. Bonding can be used to correct minor dental cracks and chips, while veneers can make your smile look straighter, more seamless, and better proportioned. Both veneers and dental bonding are custom-shaded to suit the patient, so the end result is very natural looking.

If you are missing teeth, you our dental team can replace individual teeth with dental implants. However, we can also combine implant and denture treatment to provide you with implant-stabilized dentures. These dentures are held in place with titanium implant roots, and are thus permanently embedded in your smile. Many patients find that implant roots make their dentures look and feel more natural!

No matter what your specific dental situation, our Saint Louis dental team is here to help you build the perfect treatment plan for you, specifically. Feel free to call our office to get started!
