Written by Dr. Brace on Sep 15, 2013

Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished that you could improve the smile that stared back at you? If the answer to that question is “yes,” rest assured that you are in good company! Many adult patients want to refresh and rejuvenate their teeth, and thanks to cosmetic dentistry, it is now easier than ever to achieve this goal.

Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentist office prides itself on helping patients figure out exactly how they can improve their smiles. Do you see yourself reflected in this list of common cosmetic complaints? If so, cosmetic dentistry treatments can probably help you achieve your aesthetic goals!

There are many visible dental changes that occur because the teeth are aging. For example…

· As your teeth get older, your dental enamel thins. This allows more dentin (the yellow layer below the enamel) to show through the surface of the tooth. Patients with this problem notice that their teeth are looking dark, dull, or yellow.

· Over time, staining substances—like coffee, tea, and soda—leave their marks on our teeth. This results in brown streaks on the dental enamel, or just generally darker teeth.

· Teeth are subjected to a considerable amount of wear and tear every day. Consequently, your teeth may acquire some cracks or chips. There are cosmetic and restorative treatments—like veneers and dental bonding—that can rectify this damage.

· If you have lost teeth, either due to infection or dental accident, it is imperative for both the appearance and the health of your smile that you seek treatment from a dentist.

Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentist office treats these dental issues, and many more, every day. Please give us a call if you are unhappy with the current state of your smile. With all of the comfortable, convenient treatments available, there is no reason to live with a smile that you don’t love!
