Dealing with dental damage? Our O’Fallon restorative dentists can help!

We offer a number of effective, convenient, and attractive solutions to dental damage. In this short article, we are going to be reviewing a few of them. We hope that this information gives you a better idea of all that is possible in the world of modern dentistry. 

Dental Bonding

The term “dental bonding” refers to the application, shaping, and curing of composite resin to the natural tooth surface. This treatment is used to close gaps between teeth, correct dental damage, and cover dark or stained enamel. One of the key advantages of dental bonding is that our team is able to complete treatment, from start to finish, in just one appointment.

Porcelain Crowns & Veneers

Porcelain restorations are used to improve dental aesthetics, as well as to rebuild or repair missing portions of a patient’s tooth. Because porcelain mimics the appearance of natural enamel, it is an ideal choice when it comes to restorative and cosmetic dentistry. 

Dental crowns are designed and shaped to fit over dental damage, while veneers are thin shells that are applied to the dental enamel. Depending on what type of damage you are dealing with, as well as your treatment goals, you may end up using only one of these treatments or a combination thereof. 

Tooth Replacement Options

Adult tooth loss not only affects dental aesthetics; your oral health is compromised as soon as you lose a tooth. The tooth replacement options that we offer are designed to replace the visible tooth root, and, through dental implant technology, the missing tooth root. Timely treatment can help you avoid future related issues like loss of jawbone density.

Every restorative and cosmetic dentistry plan is personalized to suit the patient’s needs. When you meet with our O’Fallon dentists we’ll be able to assess your oral health and make recommendations for your smile, specifically. We look forward to speaking with you!

Taking steps to improve the appearance of your smile may be significantly easier than you think. Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists provide a wide range of cosmetic and restorative treatments, so that we can meet our patients’ respective needs quickly, conveniently, and comfortably. The first step is to figure out what, exactly, you want to improve about your smile! Here are some things to consider…

Address Damage First

It is vitally important that we promptly address dental damage, before it creates additional problems. If, for example, you are battling periodontal disease, our team may recommend that you undergo gum disease treatment before we begin orthodontic care. On the other hand, if you are dealing with cracked or chipped teeth, we can simultaneously repair your tooth and improve aesthetics with personalized restorations.

Improve Dental Alignment

Whether you have crooked/crowded alignment, or you’re dealing with large gaps between teeth, orthodontic treatment will move your individual teeth into better positions. This creates an attractive smile that actually functions optimally and is easier to clean. It is also possible to achieve the appearance of a straighter smile using strategically placed restorations like veneers. 

Refresh Your Smile’s Shade

Another way to quickly improve the appearance of your smile is to undergo whitening treatment. Topical whitening formulations lift stains from the surface of your smile, helping to restore your tooth to its natural shade. However, you may alternatively choose to cover your visible tooth structure with porcelain restorations or dental bonding. Basically, no matter why or how your dental discoloration developed, we can help you turn back the clock.

Proportion Matters

Our eyes are drawn to symmetrical, balanced smiles. So, if part of your smile—be it gum tissue, large or small teeth, or irregular enamel edges—seems out of proportion, our team can help to refine your smile. 

Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists are here to help you achieve your dream smile, your way. Give us a call to learn more!
