Veneers

Smile Transformations Faster Than You'd Believe

Do you wish you could have straighter, whiter, even teeth? Porcelain veneers can be the answer to misshapen teeth, deep discoloration, gaps, and chips. Veneers are made of thin porcelain that covers and is bonded to your teeth. It looks natural and is made from the most advanced dental ceramic available. Veneers can improve your whole smile, making it look as if you had years of orthodontic treatment. Or they can address specific issues with single teeth. They blend perfectly with your natural teeth for a gorgeous smile!

Whitening with Bleaching Tray

KöR™ Whitening – Your Brilliant Smile Is Waiting

KOR Professional Teeth Whitening St. Louis MOWe are excited to provide a great teeth whitening procedure called KöR Whitening. There are many professional methods available that do a great job for routine whitening. But sometimes even the best treatments have a hard time improving severely stained teeth. An example is the staining caused by taking the antibiotic tetracycline. But now, with KöR Whitening, even these severely stained teeth can go brilliantly white. If you've been seeking a better way to brighten your smile, this technique will amaze you.

We also offer a professional-strength take-home whitening option with custom-made whitening trays to fit over your teeth. We give you supplies and instructions to complete the procedure at home. This safe and effective process brings results in 1 – 14 days.

Natural-Looking Filling Alternatives

Mercury-silver amalgam has been a popular filling material for years, and the restoration it provides does the job reasonably well. Unfortunately, it doesn't bond to the tooth as well as we like, and this can allow bacteria to settle under the filling, resulting in decay. Also, many patients aren't happy with the obvious look of a metal filling. Today, we offer a composite resin restoration that looks natural and blends with tooth color. The tighter bond with tooth enamel means strengthened tooth structure and reduced chance of future decay.

Improper Bite Alignment Could be Giving You Headaches and Jaw Pain!TMJ Bite Alignment Treatment St. Louis MO

You may have heard the term "temporomandibular joint disorder," also known as TMJ or TMD. The TMJ-related headaches, aching or popping jaws, shoulder pain, and neck pain can sometimes be caused by dental occlusion, or a bad bite. Teeth are often ground down over the years or lost due to accident or dental disease. When this occurs, your jaw cannot settle into a naturally relaxed position. Poor positioning is a major cause of tension in the muscles in the jaw, which can lead to a variety of pain. You may have already grown accustomed to living with some. Through a highly technical procedure called a full mouth rehabilitation, we can restore your dental occlusion, returning your jaw to the position that nature intended. If you have been living with the pain and discomfort described above, we invite you to discover the improvement this procedure may bring to your quality of life.
