Don’t Settle For An Unattractive Smile

Don’t Settle For An Unattractive Smile In Florissant!

No one likes to settle for less than the best, especially with something as important as your smile. At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we have the cosmetic dentistry solutions for your smile issues.

Cosmetic dentistry refers to a group of procedures that, individually or collectively, create positive changes to your smile. One procedure, such as teeth whitening, will go along way toward upgrading your smile. Two or more gives you a complete smile makeover.

Cosmetic Procedures

The term “cosmetic dentistry” means different things to different dentists. One practice might call a dental implant cosmetic, while another will consider it restorative.

With that in mind, here are some of the more common cosmetic dentistry procedures:

  • Teeth whitening. Nothing you buy at the store can can compare to teeth whitening from a cosmetic dentist. The bleaching ingredients may be the same, but professional strength whitening far surpasses anything over-the-counter. You’ll get a dazzling new smile!
  • Porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that are bonded to the front of your teeth. Made to match existing teeth, they can hide cracks, gaps, and other imperfections.
  • Crowns and Bridges. Dental crowns are used to repair damaged teeth by covering them like a cap. This restores them to their natural shape. A dental bridge fills the space left by a missing tooth.
  • Dental implants. Implants are state-of-the-art tooth replacement. Strictly speaking, it’s a titanium post inserted into the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. A replacement teeth is attached to the post. They look and function like natural teeth.

At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we use cosmetic dentistry to complement the overall general and dental health of each patient. We also offer treatment for sleep apnea. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Can I Objectively Evaluate My Smile?

In this post from Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we consider cosmetic dentistry and how it can improve anyone’s smile.

It is no secret that a beautiful smile can be your best physical attribute. After all, people notice your smile first thing. How do you know if your smile is detracting from your appearance?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder; if you look at your smile in the mirror and believe it is unattractive, it doesn’t really matter what anybody else thinks. But what if you are not sure?

There are many problems that are generally considered to detract from remarkable smiles. Missing teeth is a biggie. People who are missing teeth in the back of the mouth may mistakenly believe that the gap doesn’t show. They are usually wrong. When smiling, talking, laughing, or eating, a missing tooth definitely shows – even if the missing tooth is the very last molar.

Yellow or gray teeth diminish the appeal of a smile – even one that is perfectly healthy and aligned – and crooked teeth are often considered unattractive.

When you have a cosmetic dental consultation at Koch Park Dental in Florissant, you will be able to see how the vital elements work together to create a natural-looking smile. With cosmetic dentistry you can get one. We also offer restorative dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today.

Correcting Severe Dental Problems At Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS

Correcting Severe Dental Problems in FlorissantEach restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedure performed at Koch Park Dental in Florissant can address a specific issue. A porcelain veneer can correct the surface of a tooth that is discolored or slightly misshapen. Dental bonding can fill a small chip in an otherwise healthy tooth.

Some dental problems are more extensive and require a combination of procedures. Crown restoration combined with soft tissue grafts can restore a severely decayed tooth with the root exposed. A bone graft and dental implant can restore a missing tooth in an area where the jaw bone has receded. Orthodontia followed by tooth bleaching totally transforms a smile by straightening and whitening.

What is the difference between tooth bleaching and whitening? Whitening is the term for procedures which remove surface stains to restore the degree of natural lightness. Bleaching goes even further by lightening teeth beyond their natural shade. That’s right: you don’t have to resign yourself to yellow teeth even if they have been that way your whole life! The natural shade of your teeth, by the way, like your skin and hair color, is determined by genetics.

We live in an age where most dental problems can be permanently corrected. At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we work miracles with restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Teeth Whitening: Do It Right

Florissant dentist teeth whitening

It’s not a news flash to say that we’d all like to have a beautiful smile, and the whitest teeth possible. At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, teeth whitening is one of the procedures we are asked about the most often.

The color of teeth can vary greatly from one person to the next. In fact, many people have teeth that are yellowish or gray, or otherwise dull and off-color. And that probably accounts for the popularity of whitening toothpastes.

There’s a remarkable range of these toothpastes in any grocery store, along with whitening strips and similar products. They contain abrasives that polish the teeth, and help to dissolve stains.

Types of Stains

There are two kinds of stains on teeth: extrinsic and intrinsic.

  • Extrensic stains. Extrinsic stains are surface stains. We’re all vulnerable to them, because they’re the type of teeth stains that come from things like coffee, cola, and other beverages. Tobacco is also a major staining agent, whether it’s smoked or chewed.
  • Intrinsic stains. These are stains that are within the enamel of the tooth itself. They are often caused by antibiotics such as tetracycline.

What To Do?

Whitening products from the store can be effective. But they do not have the whitening power of professional teeth whitening.

One of the major drawbacks of whitening toothpaste is that the results don’t usually last. They also don’t whiten teeth more than a shade or so, and some patients report sensitivity after using them.

At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, our teeth whitening can whiten your teeth up to eight shades, leaving your with a brilliant white smile. It’s just one of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Are Dental Veneers Reversible?

When people think about improving their smiles with cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are a popular option. At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, veneers correct flaws and leave you with a magnificent smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. We custom fit each one to go over the front part of your teeth, giving them an attractive, completely natural appearance. You can use veneers to fix stained or chipped teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or abnormally spaced teeth.

Veneers are one of the most popular options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are very strong, and are made to match the color and shape of your teeth.

One caveat: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Koch Park Dental in Florissant. We also offer dental implants. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Sparkling Smiles At Koch Park Dental

affordable teeth whitening Florissant

Sparkling smiles are more attractive than dull and yellow ones: you won’t get much disagreement there. Everybody likes to see a pleasing smile, and having beautiful teeth is also healthy for your self esteem. At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we create sparkling smiles every day with cosmetic dentistry.

Unfortunately our teeth lose their luster as we grow older, but we see staining on young patients, as well. To protect teeth from staining, it is vital to brush after meals to remove substances that can stain. After consuming acidic foods or drinks, however, it is better to rinse your mouth with water to dilute the acid. This will protect your enamel.

A great smile is a huge asset. It’s how we express a range of emotions without saying a word. Our goal is to draw your teeth and facial structure into harmony, so that you are able to present the world with the best possible you.

At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, teeth whitening is safe and effective, and just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. We also provide dental implants. Schedule an appointment with us today!
