Is Your Smile Holding You Back?

St. Charles cosmetic smile makeover

Have you ever taken an unexpected trip to the supermarket looking completely disheveled in a rush to purchase an emergency item – say cough medicine or a must-have poster board for your child’s school assignment?

On such an occasion you will inevitably bump into someone you know. How do you feel in your baggy sweatpants and a stained T-shirt? Or worse yet, pajamas.

Our outward appearance affects the way we feel inside. In professional situations, don’t you feel more self-assured when you are wearing flattering, pulled-together business clothes? Aren’t you more likely to voice your opinion when you are comfortable in your own skin?

When meeting someone for the first time, don’t you feel better when you are having a good hair day or have cleared up a recent bout of acne? Blind dates are brutal when you don’t feel at the top of your game.

Attractive clothing, well-groomed hair, and a fit body boost self-assurance for most Florissant folks. But do you know what people notice before any of these characteristics? Your face. Specifically, your smile and eyes. Multiple studies have shown that dazzling teeth and eyes immediately capture attention. Now, it’s difficult to change your eyes unless you get colored contacts. But remarkable smiles are within reach because Florissant dentists can work miracles with innovative cosmetic dentistry.

With specialized training, finely honed skills, modern equipment, and quality lab services, skilled dentists can turn unattractive smiles into stunning first-impressions using a variety of cutting-edge cosmetic dental procedures. Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS patients who have received smile transformations report feeling more confident, more attractive, more effective at work, and happier in their relationships. Some even say that they take more risks and see more success.

If you are not comfortable with your smile, you are probably not aware of the effect it has had on your confidence and self-image. Don’t hide behind an unattractive smile any longer. Call Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS at 314-837-7744 today to schedule an informative cosmetic dental consultation.

Dental Miracles Seen And Unseen At Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS

white fillings Florissant

Quality dental care and cosmetic dental procedures can be extremely visible. Think porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and teeth whitening. Today, however, let’s discuss some purposefully unseen procedures that can contribute to a healthy, stunning smile. In today’s post, we will review three innovative cosmetic dental treatments: white fillings, invisible braces, and dental implants.

White Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings, white fillings, or invisible fillings are tailored to blend seamlessly with your natural tooth color. These are out of strong composite resins and porcelains. If you would like to get rid of the silver amalgam fillings in your teeth, white fillings are the. You can’t go back and get rid of those cavities, but you can make the silver disappear.

Invisible Braces
Orthodontia has become less visible with the availability of invisible braces. Custom invisible braces are worn either over teeth or behind the teeth. Invisible braces are effective and convenient. Though they are not always the best tooth-straightening option, they have helped many individuals straighten their teeth for a dramatic improvement in their smile.

Dental Implants
Sure, the crown of a tooth implant is clearly visible. But the important part—the component that makes them so much stronger than a dental bridge—is anchored into your jawbone. A titanium post secures your restoration to offer the look, feel, and strength of a natural tooth. If you are missing one or more teeth, think about dental implants.

At Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS we are enthusiastic about creating desirable smiles for our valued dental patients. We provide a full menu of general, preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments including complete smile makeovers.

Some of our most popular treatments at Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS include dental implants, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign. Contact Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS today at 205-933-0323 to schedule an informative consultation.

4 Smile Boosters

St. Charles cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Hi, my name is Dr. Martin Buchheit. My dental practice, Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS, has been serving the Florissant, Missouri area since 1987. Today in my St. Louis dental blog, I would like to highlight four ways you can improve your smile.

1. Teeth Whitening is quick and non-invasive. External tooth whitening occurs when teeth whitening agents bleach the teeth directly. This can be done in your home or in the office of your dentist.

2. Dental Implants are another common procedure that many Florissant residents seek. A dental implant is secured into the jawbone to replace the roots of a lost tooth. A natural-looking crown is affixed to the implant. Along with improving the appearance and restoring tooth function, the dental implant does double-duty by helping to preserve bone support.

3. Dental Bonding can be done with various materials such as porcelain and composite resins. With recent advances in cosmetic dental services, these materials can more precisely replicate natural tooth structure and natural appearance. This procedure is commonly used to correct chipped or cracked teeth.

4. Periodontal Plastic Surgery is an exceptional solution for gum recession and cosmetic irregularities. You can remove a “gummy smile” or remedy an uneven gum line.

I hope this post has helped you to get better acquainted with some highly effective cosmetic dentistry treatments. A combination of procedures can be used to give Florissant dental patients a complete smile redesign.

Let’s Talk About Your Smile

Let’s Talk About Your Smile I’m Martin Buchheit of Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS. My office is located at 2149 Charbonier Rd in Florissant. One of the best things about being a dentist is interacting with my patients. During initial dental consultations, I listen carefully to my patient’s short and long term dental goals.

I enjoy discussing options and developing effective treatment plans tailored specifically to each person. Some of my patients desire a total smile makeover. I explain in detail the treatments available including teeth whitening, dental veneers, orthodontia, crown restoration, and dental implants.

If a patient is nervous about undergoing treatment, we discuss oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation, sometimes called oral sedation dentistry, is a great option for anxious patients. Dental visits do not have to be painful!

After the treatment has been completed, it is very gratifying for me to see my patient’s reaction to their new smile.

I never get tired of creating dramatic smile transformations for the best patients in Missouri!

Filtered Florissant Water And Oral Health

Filtered Florissant Water And Oral Health

A simple way for St. Louis residents to choose beverages that won’t harm their teeth is to keep it simple and make water their go-to drink. However, for safety, thrift, and convenience, many dental patients choose to drink bottled water or filter it themselves at home.

Filtered water can be detrimental to oral health if it doesn’t contain fluoride, which is a great tooth decay preventer.

If you choose bottled water and are wondering if any naturally occurring fluoride has been removed, you can check the label. If you prefer to filter your own tap water, look to see if the American Dental Association has given the filter its seal of approval.

 

Water filters that carry the ADA seal don’t remove fluoride, so you can be sure that the fluoride is still in your water and benefitting your teeth.

I’m Dr. Martin Buchheit, an experienced Florissant dentist serving the Chesterfield, Maryland Heights, and St. Charles areas. I am passionate about helping my patients have healthy mouths and beautiful smiles. Contact us today at 205-933-0323 and we can answer any questions you have about dental health, cosmetic dentistry, or smile makeovers.

Hiccups In Your Dental Routine

Chesterfield cosmetic dental veneers

The most common times people stop to brush their teeth are morning and night – either before or after breakfast, after dinner, or at bedtime. Common concerns that come with this routine involve hiccups in the schedule, from family life, shift work or exhaustion.

Sometimes after dinner isn’t super cut and dried. Many St. Louis families face irregular weeknight routines. As the school year progresses, some have games to attend, band concerts, play practice, youth groups or other weeknight commitments. An irregular schedule usually disrupts regular dental maintenance.

Many St. Charles workers have daily commutes or shift work to battle with. Due to the changing landscape of Florissant’s job market and the greater variety in shift schedules we see patients who are adjusting to irregularities in sleep patterns. This leads to exhaustion and often sleep takes priority over consistent brushing – either morning or night.

The most important time to be sure to brush is after eating sugar or carb-intensive foods. These foods kickstart bacteria growth on the teeth without vigilant attention.

Highly acidic foods weaken the enamel, so it is best to swish with water immediately after consuming acidic foods to reduce the acid. Then brush about 30 minutes later when the mouth is less acidic. The fluoride in toothpaste helps remineralize the enamel.

Dr. Martin Buchheit’s hygiene staff at Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS has been assisting Missouri families since 1987 to prevent hiccups in their dental routines. See how we demonstrate professional and educated instruction at http://www.kochparkdental.net/about-us/.

Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS provides more than just cosmetic dentistry or general dentistry. In addition to Invisalign, restorative dentistry, dental implants, and root canals there is hygiene education, teeth whitening and cleanings to be discussed. Sure, the cost of cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers, invisalign braces and dental bridges can all seem confusing. The key is to stay on top of the critical habits that you can control. We can help you make sense of the other stuff.

Regular checkups are important for catching decay, infection or other troubles early so let us make an appointment for your next preventative visit and keep those hiccups from causing permanent damage. Call us at 314-837-7744 to schedule!

Which Tooth Whitener Works Best?

Dazzling White Teeth in Florissant What is the best professional tooth whitening system to use in Florissant?

There are two types of dentist-supervised tooth whitening systems available in St. Louis. In order to determine the best choice for your teeth, schedule, and budget; you need to understand the differences in the systems.

Both systems use a bleaching agent containing peroxide. Florissant dentists who offer professional in-office tooth bleaching use a whitening gel with a high concentration of peroxide. Some Maryland Heights in-office tooth whitening systems use a light that causes the tooth bleaching agent to work faster.

When a special light is shined at teeth on which the whitening gel is applied, it causes the peroxide to break down into free radicals, which are active oxygen molecules. This process naturally occurs without the light, but the light makes it happen faster. That is why you can get whiter teeth in just one hour.

Most Florissant cosmetic dentists also offer take-home tooth whitening systems. Although these procedures take a bit longer to work, they achieve the same dramatic results. For many St. Charles and Chesterfield patients, this is the most affordable teeth whitening system.

At Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS, we offer safe and effective teeth bleaching. Our Florissant cosmetic dentistry patients can’t believe how great their teeth look when they remove the stains and restore the brightness. If you would like to learn why our system is superior, schedule a consultation by calling our office at 614-451-2100.
