When pursuing cosmetic treatment, you want to make sure that you end up with a finished smile that looks exceptionally natural, and like it is yours. During the treatment process, our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists take great care in perfecting each patient’s respective treatment plan; here are some of the things we keep in mind:
1. Your natural smile
When we are tailoring treatments to fit your needs, one of the first things we’ll consider is what kinds of natural dental shapes you have in your smile. When crafting replacement teeth or dental bonding, for example, we will make sure that the work we do mimics your existing tooth shapes and sizes, so that you get the customized results you want.
2. The order of treatments
If you are undergoing multiple treatments to achieve your ideal results, the order in which you complete these treatments may be very important. For example, our dental team recommends that our patients undergo professional dental whitening (if they want to lighten their smiles) prior to having their restorations or replacement teeth placed. This allows us to shade your restorations to match your post-whitening treatment shade; thus ensuring a good match.
3. Customizable options
Our O’Fallon dentists customize the aesthetic and restorative treatments that we use to help our patients feel confident about their smiles. Dental bonding allows us to tailor the color of the resin, as well as the size and shape of the bonding that we apply. Restorations like LUMINEERS and crowns are likewise designed to suit the patient in size, shape, and shade. Because we don’t believe in “one size fits all” dental solutions, you will end up with the aesthetic results that feel natural and right for you.
If you are currently suffering from dental damage, you want to seek effective treatment as soon as possible. Prompt treatment will help you minimize your risk of further damage and secondary infections.
If you want to learn more about how our O’Fallon dentists treat dental problems, keep reading this short article. We are reviewing some of the treatments that we commonly use to help patients overcome damage and infections.
Cavity removal + fillings: if you have a dental cavity, our team can remove the damaged tooth structure, and then fill the tooth with an inert substance, so that it looks and feels whole again.
Root canal therapy: teeth that are severely infected or damaged—meaning that the inside of the tooth (where the dental tissues and roots reside) is affected—may need to undergo root canal therapy. During this treatment our team clears away the inner core of the tooth, dental roots, and any damaged dental tissues. Then, we can sterilize the remaining healthy tooth structure, before restoring the tooth with a crown.
Dentures and Dental Implants: for people suffering from tooth loss, our dental team offers a number of treatments that replace missing teeth. Dentures, for example, are used to replace consecutive missing teeth. Dental implants, on the other hand, are stand-alone replacement teeth, which means our team can use them to replace any number of teeth—from one to a whole smile! Every dental implant has a titanium root that holds the replacement tooth in place permanently in the patient’s jawbone.
These are just a few of the restorative treatments that we provide in our dental office. The exact treatments that we use to help you will depend on the current state of your smile, as well as your treatment preferences. So feel free to call our O’Fallon dentists to get more information and to schedule your personal consultation!
