O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentist Helps Patients Get and Keep Bright Smiles

If you have been looking in the mirror and wishing that your smile looked just a little (ok, or a lot) brighter, we know how you feel. Dental discoloration is one of the most common aesthetic dental problems that we see in our O’Fallon cosmetic dentist office.

Because we want to help all of our patients maintain bright, white smiles, our dental team has put together this short article describing different ways that you can improve your smile’s brightness. Keep reading to learn more about the whitening options available to you.

Remember the saying “the best offense is a good defense?” This simple truth applies to your smile as well! If you can avoid severe dental discoloration, you will be in a much better spot than if you need to pursue significant whitening treatments in the future. So take the time to clean your mouth thoroughly (including flossing!), as recommended by your dentist.

However, if you do notice that your smile is starting to look dark or stained, our dental team has cosmetic treatments that can help you regain a luminous smile.

· Cosmetic dental whitening treatments lifts stains from your natural dental enamel. Many patients enjoy stunning results after only one or two dental appointments. These results are easily maintained with periodic follow-up whitening treatments (either at-home or in-office treatments).

· LUMINEERS are another option for achieving a brighter smile. LUMINEERS are thin layers of porcelain that cover natural teeth. So if you have dark teeth that you cannot lighten with dental bleaching treatments, LUMINEERS may be a great option for you.

You do not have to live with dark or dull teeth. There are treatment solutions that will whiten your smile and help you smile confidently again! Please feel free to contact our O’Fallon cosmetic dentist office if you are ready to get started!
