Saint Louis Dentist Helps You Reach Your Goals With Compatible Dental Treatments

Written by Dr. Grayem on Mar 1, 2016

In many instances, the best way for our Saint Louis dentists to help patients achieve their dream smiles, is to combine useful treatments. There are certain treatments that are often employed in conjunction with one another—today we’ll be talking about some of these dental double whammies.

Dental whitening + Dental bonding

If you want to whiten your smile, professional dental whitening treatments can help you achieve full results quickly and affordably. However, some teeth are resistant to whitening formulations—that is where dental bonding comes into play.

Our dental team can whiten your smile as a whole with whitening treatments. Then, if you have damaged or persistently discolored teeth, we can cover these teeth with dental bonding, which I shaded to match your already whitened and brightened smile.

Dentures + Mini dental implants

This is a hugely exciting dental combo for patients suffering from tooth loss! While traditional dentures sat on top of the dental enamel, and were thus sometimes prone to shifting around, modern denture can actually be help permanently in place. Basically, our dental team uses small metal mini implant roots to attach the patient’s denture to his or her jawbone. Once the denture is in place, it stays in place 24/7/. We generally use about four mini implants to stabilize a full denture.

LUMINEERS + Dental implants

If you want to achieve a smile transformation, and you are currently missing teeth, you might choose to use LUMINEERS in conjunction with dental implants. LUMINEERS will cover your existing enamel, while dental implants will be used to replace individual teeth throughout the smile. The results are seamless and transformative.
