At Family and Cosmetic Dentistry – Dr. James L. Schmidt & Associates in St. Louis, MO we provide all our patients with access to a long list of cosmetic dentistry solutions. However, as your preferred dentist in St. Louis, we want you to realize that cosmetic dentistry does more than simply improve the looks of your smile. Let’s take some time to look at what we offer and how a cosmetic dentist also helps to improve the health and function of your teeth and gums.

Treatments Available From Our Cosmetic Dentistry Specialist

What cosmetic dentistry options are available to our patients? Currently, we provide services such as:

Any one of these treatments may be all that you need to obtain a picture-perfect smile, but also consider that patients who need more than a single form of cosmetic dentistry can consider a smile makeover. This is a customized plan for treatment, which does much more than address cosmetic issues. It could involve everything from implants to other restorative treatment, too.

We encourage patients to set aside any notions of cosmetic dentistry being entirely esthetic. This is because some cosmetic concerns are actually impairing function or creating dental issues. Consider a misaligned smile. This is something our team can address with Invisalign as well as veneers. If we do use Invisalign, it could make it easier to keep your teeth in top condition, to improve jaw function and eliminate risks of uneven wear. This would mean that a cosmetic correction was also functional and beneficial!

Because we begin any cosmetic plans on a foundation of optimal oral health, we begin by ensuring your teeth and gums are in the best shape. We will do any necessary care such as fillings or treatment for gum disease before we begin cosmetic work, and that means a benefit of cosmetic dentistry is optimal oral health.
