Are Dental Veneers Reversible?

prepless veneers

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!

Go Back In Time

cosmetic dental and implants St. Louis

So you’ve lost some teeth and now are reluctant to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and take back that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants from Koch Park Dental in Florissant, you can!

For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so natural that implant recipients forget they ever lost a tooth in the first place.

A dental implant is anchored into the jawbone with a durable metal post. It doesn’t slide around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it protects healthy jawbone and prevents bone recession. After the post is totally enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are firmly attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the treatment at once.

If you’ve lost multiple teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures.

Another way to go back in time is to lighten your teeth to the sparkling color they were when you were a teenager. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, talk to Dr. Buchheit about your goals and budget.

Have you ever wished your smile looked like it did before you had any tooth decay? (Many of us can’t remember that far back!) Talk to us about tooth-colored fillings. White fillings match your teeth, and significantly improve your smile without crowns.

Perhaps you have chipped a tooth. We have numerous solutions to correct that trouble as well. Talk to us about your goals for your smile.

At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we look forward to formulating a custom treatment plan to transform your smile. In addition to dental implants, our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Call today!

Five Fast Ways to Improve Your Smile

cosmetic dental and implants Florissant

Do you have a special event coming up? Perhaps a wedding, graduation, milestone birthday, anniversary, or reunion? These celebrations usually involve a lot of photographs and, of course, you want to look attractive. You may not have time to lose 20 pounds, but you can transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry from Koch Park Dental in Florrisant.

Here are five cosmetic dental procedures that can usually be performed in one office visit.

1. Veneers
Porcelain veneers have been a celebrated treatment for decades but we never fail to be amazed by the terrific results they furnish. A veneer is a super-thin layer of porcelain bonded permanently to the tooth. A veneer can cover a chip, hide a crack, make discoloration disappear, or fix a misshapen tooth.

2. Gum Contouring
Perhaps your teeth are remarkable and healthy but you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation. Gum contouring can reshape the gumline and perfect your smile. Book a consultation with Dr. Buchheit today for a thorough examination and experienced advice regarding your gumline.

3. Enamel Shaping
Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the characteristics of a smile even if all the other teeth have a winning appearance. We can reshape the tooth so it blends in seamlessly.

4. Bonding
Dental bonding just gets better and better as additional materials are developed. Bonding is used in a multitude of applications to correct teeth with cosmetic and structural problems. The newest prep methods are minimally invasive – leaving you with more of your own tooth structure.

5. Teeth Whitening
Make your smile pop with professional in-office teeth whitening. There is nothing like a terrific white smile to give you ultimate confidence.

Cosmetic dentistry is an investment that will bless you with increased self-esteem every day. At Koch Park Dental in Florrisant, we look forward to getting your smile ready for all those hugs, laughs, and, of course, pictures. We also offer dental implants and other services. Call today!

The Ultimate Anti-Aging Treatment

Florissant Pediatric DentistryWishing for a whiter smile but not sure how to get it? New to tooth whitening jargon? At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we educate patients on the variety of teeth whitening procedures. We do smile whitening every day.

Toothpaste Can’t Erase All Stains

Almost every toothpaste claims to lighten teeth, but as we age our teeth gradually turn yellow or gray, despite all the whitening toothpastes we use. Tooth enamel, while one of the toughest substances in the body, is porous. Over time, the food and drinks that come in contact with our teeth lead to staining and discoloration. You probably have already discovered that a toothbrush cannot clean these microscopic pores.

Powerful Peroxide

Carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide are the two main smile whitening substances. They can penetrate the outer layer of your teeth to expel the build-up and help restore the previous color.

Call Koch Park Dental to schedule a teeth whitening appointment and we will explain the difference between these tooth bleaching ingredients and how they may affect your smile whitening results. Teeth whitening is just one of our cosmetic dentistry procedurs. We also offer dental implants. Schedule an appointment today.

Teeth Whitening For A Whiter Smile

Florissant Tooth Whitening For Whiter SmilesTooth whitening is one of the easiest and most rewarding cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer at Koch Park Dental in Florissant. There are already a lot of whitening options out there. How do you find the one that’s best for you?

Visiting our office is a good start!

Whitening your teeth is an advanced dental procedure that you won’t want to get wrong on the first try.

Teeth whitening has become extremely popular. It seems like everyone wants to have the brightest possible smile. From toothpastes and strips you can buy at the store, to the professional-strength procedures we use, there are a lot of options.

A lot of things we do every day can really to a number on the whiteness of your teeth. Coffee, tea, and red wine are just three commonly-consumed beverages that stain enamel. Plus, teeth just grow dull with the passage of time.

While there are plenty of over-the-counter products out there, none of them can match the whitening power of the professional whitening systems we use. All whitening is achieved with peroxide, but our professional-strength products out-do them all.

Teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer at Koch Park Dental in Florissant. We also offer dental implants. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.
