Is there one thing you dislike about your smile? Maybe it is a cosmetic dentistry issue like stained or discolored teeth. Maybe you have one slightly crooked or chipped tooth. That is a single issue. If you have two or more issues, it may mean you are a perfect candidate for a smile makeover. James Schmidt, DDS, in St. Louis, MO offers our patients a wide array of cosmetic and restorative dentistry solutions that can each figure into a perfect smile makeover.
A smile makeover is usually defined as a process that requires multiple procedures and treatments. When done in our dental office, it also looks at things like the dimensions of your face, your natural complexion, the esthetics of the teeth and their natural structure, and so much more. This guarantees that you have a healthy, functional and good looking grin.
Of course, we don’t do a smile makeover until we are sure your teeth and gums are in the best conditions possible. Working with a general dentist our patients get any of the treatments needed to be sure their teeth are as healthy as they are attractive. Sometimes, this may mean you require a bit of restorative dentistry that can include fillings, dental crowns and even dental implants. These are all part of the makeover, and once those steps are done, we work with you to create your customized cosmetic treatment plan.
This can include:
Of course, not all of these treatments may be needed. It begins when you visit our dentist office and consult with us about your concerns or complaints. We never look at a makeover as a one size fits all activity, and your treatment plan is going to be customized to your needs, budget and schedule. We use a logical order of activities to ensure the best outcomes, and all patients are given many different options based on their wishes and goals.
One of the simplest solutions, and one that many choose, is porcelain veneers. We can do traditional veneers or Lumineers, and this can make it possible for you to have an almost complete makeover in as little as one or two visits.
Other issues include old amalgam (metal) fillings that are weak and unsightly. We may recommend the removal of them and replacement with a tooth colored filling, an inlay or onlay, or a dental crown. If you are missing teeth, we are going to consider the viability of dental implants as they are a superior and beneficial option, but if this is not possible, we may suggest a dental bridge and dental crowns that will create a stable and attractive replacement.
