Thanks to advances in modern restorative and aesthetic dentistry, you can achieve many of your dental goals in a short period of time. In today’s article, our O’Fallon dentists will be giving you more information about some of the treatments and therapies that deliver results quickly…
Start with a comprehensive cleaning
The first step in any treatment plan is a complete professional cleaning. Our dental team will clear away any plaque that has accumulated in your mouth, as well as tartar. Tartar is actually plaque that has calcified on to the tooth structure. Tartar is very difficult to remove on your own at home, but we have the tools and technologies to clear it away quickly.
Once you have completed a professional cleaning you will notice that your mouth feels much fresher. You may also be able to see an aesthetic improvement, since plaque and tartar can look yellow or dark.
Correct damage with restorations
When teeth are damaged, either due to infection or trauma, we need to repair them, and, in some cases, rebuild them from the root up. The fastest restorative treatment options are those that utilize composite resin. For example, dental bonding, which is used to resurface enamel, lengthen teeth, close gaps in a patient’s smile, and improve bite function is completed in just one appointment.
If you are ready to improve the appearance of your smile, you have a number of convenient and effective treatment options at your disposal. Professional teeth whitening treatment, during which our team applies a topical whitening agent to the smile, can deliver measurable results in just one appointment. The aforementioned dental bonding is often used for cosmetic reasons. But, if you would rather use porcelain than use composite resin you can choose custom-crafted veneers to resurface your smile. Veneers only take two or three appointments to design, craft, and place.
