Cosmetic Dentistry in St. Louis
Cosmetic dentistry is a form of dentistry that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. Issues with the appearance of your teeth can have a negative effect on your self-confidence. With our cosmetic dentistry services, you can get the smile you have always wanted. At St. Louis Hills Dental Group, we have a variety of cosmetic dentistry services available. Your smile is what makes you who you are, let us help make yours the best it can be.
We may recommend a dental bridge if you are missing one or more teeth. A dental bridge, like its name, bridges the space created by one or more missing teeth. They are useful to restore your smile, the shape of your face, and to repair your bite. Our dentists will either connect the dental bridge to your existing teeth or attach it to an implant. They are made from a variety of different materials ranging from gold to porcelain. We will find the best material to suit your needs for a beautiful smile.
A dental crown may be necessary if a tooth has become significantly damaged. Not only will a dental crown strengthen the tooth, but it will also improve its appearance and shape. A crown is placed either on top of a damaged tooth or over an implant. We have crowns made from a variety of materials and will recommend the best ones to suit your needs and budget.
Over time, teeth have a tendency to darken or sustain cracks and chips. These unwanted blemishes can be remedied by installing dental veneers. Manufactured using medical-grade ceramic, dental veneers are created uniquely, perfectly resembling your natural teeth. Veneers will restore your smile back to perfection, giving you the confidence to be you again.
Our composite bonding service is perfect if you have damage to your teeth. We use a material that is similar to the natural color of your tooth’s enamel. Unlike other types of cosmetic dentistry like veneers and bridges, bonding can be completed in a single visit. It is also one of the easiest and more affordable cosmetic services. Most patients are in and out within 30 minutes to an hour. No preparation is necessary! Bonding gives the appearance of a healthy, natural tooth to restore your picture-perfect smile.
Over the years, your teeth can become stained and lose some of the brightness they once had. Eating and drinking certain foods and drinks like coffee, tea, and wine can cause a significant level of staining. Smoking is also a leading cause of yellowing. Fortunately, teeth whitening is one of the simplest cosmetic procedures we perform. This can be done fairly quickly in our office in just a single session. While home kits and remedies can be somewhat useful, our teeth whitening services are significantly more effective and safer.
