What Cosmetic Treatment Works For You? Our O’Fallon Cosmetic Dentist Helps You Decide

Choosing a cosmetic dentistry treatment is a big decision—you want to make sure that you take multiple factors into account when picking between options. Our O’Fallon cosmetic dentists work with patients to weigh the pros and cons of each treatment. We’ll help you consider:

· Your timeline

· Your budget

· The oral health and cosmetic goals you want to achieve

· Your comfort level

· Your post-treatment aesthetic and maintenance goals

Taking all of these factors in combination, we will be able to help you pick a dental treatment that is just right for you. Here are some popular options:

Dental implants: every one of these replacement teeth is grounded into the patient’s jawbone with a titanium root. Dental implants are completely customizable, natural looking, and permanent.

Dentures: this type of dental prosthetic replaces multiple teeth at once. While dentures traditionally sat on top of a patient’s gum tissue, now our dentists can actually secure dentures in place with mini dental implant roots.

Lumineers: Lumineers are porcelain aesthetic restorations. Basically, a Lumineer covers the visible surfaces of a tooth. Every Lumineer is designed to fit the patient, and once our dentist adheres the Lumineer to your tooth, it will stay in place 24/7.

Teeth whitening: this quick and comfortable treatment lightens stained and discolored dental enamel. Our dental team will apply a potent whitening gel over your teeth, and, as you relax in the dentist’s chair, this gel will lift embedded discoloration from the surface of your smile.

Dental bonding: dental bonding allows our dental team to repair and/or resurface a patient’s tooth using dental resin. Once the resin has cured, it will become hard and durable so that it can stand up to the wear and tear of daily life.
