Do you look in the mirror and wish your smile was more attractive? Your cosmetic dentist in St. Louis, MO, also serving Oakville, MO, Dr. Aaron Schertzer, can help you improve your appearance with a variety of cosmetic dentistry services and procedures.

What cosmetic dentistry option is right for you?

Even minor tooth issues can mean big problems for your smile. Tiny chips or discolored teeth are hard to hide and may make you feel self-conscious every time you open your mouth. During your visit to your St. Louis, MO, cosmetic dentist also serving Oakville, MO, we may recommend one of these smile-enhancing procedures:

  • Bonding: Bonding is an excellent choice for many types of imperfections and is one of the least costly cosmetic dentistry options. It's a good option if you want to cover a discolored tooth, hide a crack, fill in a chip or gap, or improve the appearance of a tooth. Bonding involves applying flexible composite resin to your tooth, shaping it, then hardening it with a curing light.
  • Teeth Whitening: If your smile has lost its luster, why not brighten it with teeth whitening? Whitening removes stain-causing pigments from your tooth enamel with professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel. After a one-hour whitening session, you can expect to see a three to eight shade improvement in your smile.
  • Veneers: Veneers conceal many imperfections and don't require any major changes to your tooth structure. The thin shells are cemented to the fronts of your teeth after a tiny amount of enamel is removed. In some cases, it's not even necessary to remove any enamel. Veneers are often used to change the shape and length of teeth, close slight gaps, improve the appearance of discolored teeth, and hide imperfections like chips, cracks, and uneven surfaces.
  • Dental Implants: Implants make it possible to create a brand new tooth from top to bottom. Titanium posts replace your missing tooth roots and bond to your jawbone. They're connected to dental crowns, restorations that replace the tops of teeth, to create brand new, fully functioning teeth.
