Teeth Whitening

What says “healthy smile” more than gleaming white teeth, and yet many people with perfectly healthy smiles don’t have teeth whitening treatment in st. louisthose movie star grins they desire. This is because even the healthiest teeth can be discolored due to any number of reasons. Rather than hiding that grin, pay a visit to James Schmidt, DDS in St. Louis, MO and learn about the many teeth whitening options available.

In Office and At Home

When your oral health and hygiene are up to speed and yet you feel self-conscious about the looks of your healthy teeth and gums, it is time to meet with a cosmetic dentist. In our dental office, you can discuss all of your cosmetic needs and wishes and find an array of simple and effective options. For many, teeth whitening is one of the most popular choices because it can so easily, painlessly and effectively improve the looks of your smile.

Of course, not all teeth whitening treatments are alike, and our cosmetic dentist is happy to review the options available to you in our dental office. We offer in-office teeth whitening as well as at home options, and our take home kits are greatly superior to anything you might purchase over the counter at a local pharmacy or department store, simply because we do not offer the same “one size fits all” design.

Instead, any of our teeth whitening treatments will feature custom made “trays” that are designed specifically for your teeth. Your treatment will involve two visits to the dentist office, with the first to make the trays and the second to do the first treatment. You can then take home the trays and extra whitening products and use them twice daily for half of an hour or overnight over the course of several weeks. Once you get the degree of whitening desired, you need only visit periodically for further applications.

We make the remarkable Sinsational Smile available too.

This is a revolutionary treatment in which your teeth can be many shades brighter with just a single, 20-minute treatment. Again, this system uses specialized trays that are pre-filled with the powerful whitening agent. You visit our office and the comfortable trays are placed on the upper and lower jaws. These are amazingly comfortable, and once they are in place, we use a special LED light to activate the formula and do the rapid whitening.

There is a take home option for this approach too, and it comes in the form of a unique maintenance “pen” used to accurately apply the formula to the area along the gum and anywhere discoloration may have appeared.

Why Whiten?

You may not have even considered some teeth whitening in our dental office and you may have paid a visit to a cosmetic dentist because you are a bit self-conscious about your smile. However, whitening does more than erase the problems created by aging, coffee or tea drinking, smoking and medication. It also boosts your self-confidence and leaves you much happier. No longer hiding your smile or feeling embarrassed by discoloration does wonders for your self-esteem too.

What are Clients Saying About Us

  • I cannot express my gratitude for your contribution in changing my life. I have been unable to wear my dentures for many years. This caused serious adjustments in my eating habit, my physical appearance, and my self confidence. People made fun of me making faces when chewing the limited food I ate. I had given up simple things like steak, corn on the cob, salads, nuts and most of all, smiles. This may seem trivial to you, but this Christmas I plan on purchasing many pounds of mixed nuts. Every time I eat them I will give a silent thanks to you for helping make it possible to eat them. It has been about 10 years since I have been able to enjoy such simple things. People tell me I look 10 years younger and have a great smile. Your contribution may have been just another day at work for you. But an uplifting life change for me. Appreciation doesn’t describe how much this means to me. Thank you and may you be blessed as I have been.

  • Thirty three years ago I had crowns installed on several of my front teeth, for cosmetic reasons. This year I realized it was time for a change , I went to Dr. Schmidt for a consultation this spring, and today I cannot stop smiling. Dr. Schmidt replaced the existing crowns , added 4 existing crowns on top, and eight veneers on the bottom teeth. It took 4 painless procedures to give me the confidence to smile again.
  • I felt that my comfort and concerns were the most important issue at hand! Your entire office made me feel important instead of the other way around. Thank you. I have always feared the dentist and also have an irrational fear of loosing all my teeth like my parents. To all of you, thanks, for making me feel important today. Your professional and comforting office deserves to be commended.
