Porcelain Veneers, A Facelift For Your Teeth?

porcelain veneers price St. Louis

Porcelain veneers are an effective and versatile cosmetic dental option. They fit over teeth to improve appearance, and are available from Koch Park Dental in Florissant.

Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are a fantastic way to repair a myriad of tooth imperfections such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shape or minimal misalignment.

Have you ever looked for a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your solution! Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.

How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to upgrade and the overall condition of your teeth. We can guide you on the most effective strategy.

The thickness, enamel color, alignment, and shape of your teeth affect the result, as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them constructed in the same time at the lab.

The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to fabricate the veneers to the specific size, shape, color, and quality of translucency.

Many patients wonder if veneers are as durable as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years.

In addition to porcelain veneers, Koch Park Dental in Florissant provides general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!

This Is The Year For A New Smile! Cosmetic Dentistry in Florissant

Maryland Heights Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are not familiar with the latest dental advances, you might not realize what cosmetic dentistry can do for you. At Koch Park Dental in Florissant, we can make positive changes to your teeth and smile.

Even a small enhancement can make a big difference in your smile, and a big difference in your smile can improve your self-confidence. One such small step available with cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening.

There are a lot of whitening products available at the grocery store, and they can have a positive effect on the whiteness of your teeth. But they cannot match the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.

All teeth whitening products involve bleaching, and professional-grade products are much stronger than any over-the-counter toothpastes, gels, or strips. We provide our patients with take-home whitening. First we make special trays that are custom-fitted to your bite. A whitening gel goes into the trays, and you wear them overnight for a few weeks. The result is a dazzling white smile.

We also offer another popular procedure, porcelain veneers. These are thin shells that are attached to the front of your teeth. They can mask many imperfections, from gaps to chips to yellow teeth.

These are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures for improving your smile. To find out more, contact us at Koch Park Dental in Florissant. We also provide general dentistry.

Multi-Procedure Dental Visits Save Time

Multi-Procedure Dental Visits in Florissant

For straight teeth in the St. Louis area, look no further than Koch Park Dental, where Dr. Martin L. Buchheit and his team deliver quality dental care in a safe and fun environment.

If you are planning extensive cosmetic dental work, you may be wondering whether to do it all at once, or spread it out one procedure at a time. Here are some things to think about:

Time
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing is speedier than in it used to be. Still, some procedures such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants may require a period of healing.

It is easier physically and psychologically to have the fewest dental visits possible. You should also consider how your dental visits and any healing periods will affect your employment and family life. You will have less down time if you receive several procedures at once.

Aesthetic Results
While we routinely achieve great outcomes when doing a smile makeover in steps, multiple porcelain veneer restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.

Sedation Dentistry
When you come in for a smile analysis, we can discuss oral sedation dentistry. Many cosmetic dental patients benefit from this safe and effective solution for pain and anxiety management. Conscious sedation is especially useful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

Cost
In the long run, it is more affordable to do multiple procedures at once. At Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS, we are able to complete several procedures in one visit. We understand that complete smile transformations are a significant investment. We would be happy to discuss financing options.

Dental services at Koch Park Dental also include teeth whitening and Invisalign clear braces. Call us at 314-254-8458 to schedule a no-pressure consultation.

Do Veneers Make Teeth Look Bigger?

Chesterfield cosmetic dental and tooth implants

A well-designed veneer does not make your tooth look larger – unless you want it to. A veneer can correct many cosmetic dental problems and is a minimally invasive restoration. During the placement of some porcelain veneers, an extremely thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth.

If you have teeth with damage, discoloration, an irregular shape or minimal to moderate misalignment, you have several dental remedies to choose from. Don’t worry if you feel that veneers seem to have more cons than pros for you. You have alternative options. We can analyze your smile, your needs, and your goals to develop a perfect plan.

Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS offers the highest standard of dental care and the full spectrum of important services including:

Invisalign
restorative dentistry
dental implants
root canals
porcelain veneers

What Can Veneers Do For St. Louis Smiles?

porcelain veneers cost St. Louis

Hello, and welcome to our Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. They are generally used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.

If you visit your dentist for veneers, he or she will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a small portion of the enamel on the tooth has to be removed so the veneer can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

I hope that this blog entry has helped you to understand a little more about veneers and how they can help you to improve your smile. Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS offers all the services you need to create your very best smile. Ask us about gum contouring, smile makeovers, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces.

If you are looking for a dentist with expertise creating beautiful porcelain veneers, give Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS a call. My name is Dr. Martin Buchheit and I have been practicing dentistry since 1987.

Please call 314-254-8458 and a member of our friendly staff can schedule an appointment for you and answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry.
