Learn More About How Our O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentists Achieve Various Aesthetic Effects

Written by Dr. Brace on Jul 28, 2015

As a dental patient, you have a wide variety of treatment options when it comes time to rejuvenate your smile. Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists employ a number of different techniques and treatments in order to transform smiles.

Today we are going to be talking about some of the treatments we offer—what they do, and whom they can help.

Let’s start with one of the fastest and easiest cosmetic options: professional dental whitening. During this treatment, our dental team applies a whitening formulation—usually in the form of a gel—to the patient’s dental enamel. This gel goes to work minimizing existing stains, and restoring the smiles to its previous level of whiteness.

Another cosmetic treatment option is the dental Lumineer. A Lumineer is an individual cosmetic restoration. These restorations, which are made of porcelain, are attached to individual teeth. They cover the outer surfaces of the teeth, and give the smile a new appearance, and, sometimes, a new structure. This treatment is versatile—Lumineers are used to whiten smiles, straighten smiles, and make smiles appear more balanced.

Let’s say that you are currently missing teeth; if this is the case, we have attractive restorative options to suit your smile. Dental implants are stand-alone replacement teeth, while dentures and bridges are used to replace multiple teeth in a row. All of these prosthetics are shaped and shaded to suit the patient’s individual smile and appearance.

Sometimes, people are able to achieve the results that they desire by using only one of these treatments. Other times, our dental team combines different treatments in order to effectively transform smiles.

The best way to figure out which treatments would work for you is to schedule a consultation with our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists. We look forward to hearing from you, and working with you!
