Straightening and Brightening Smiles
Teeth whitening is an extremely popular cosmetic service and with good reason. Whitening lightens the stains that build up on teeth over time, resulting in a whiter and brighter smile. Our in-office whitening treatment works quickly and effectively to improve the color of your teeth. We invite you to learn more about our teeth whitening page.
Fixing crooked teeth is another popular service at our office. We often offer the Invisalign system as an alternative method to metal braces for straightening teeth. In the Invisalign system, a series of personalized clear aligners shift tooth placement over time. Many patients opt for Invisalign because it is more discreet than traditional metal braces. This system can be used for both teens and adults. Contact us to find out if you would make a good candidate for Invisalign. Learn more on the Invisalign page.
Other Cosmetic Services
In addition to straightening and whitening teeth, we do restorative work, such as fixing chips or capping broken teeth. We also handle implants if you are missing a tooth. Using the latest technology, we’ll work with you to come up with a plan for fixing tooth issues and create a treatment plan based on these factors.
If you need a cavity filled, we use a tooth-colored material that blends in with your surrounding teeth. We can also fashion tooth-colored crowns instead of using metal. There are many techniques we are able to employ to enhance your smile and we enjoy doing this type of work for our patients in the St. Louis area.
