Covering TeethDo your front teeth overlap? Are there gaps between the teeth that show when you smile? You might think that the only way to improve your smile’s appearance is through traditional orthodontic treatment. While that’s a proven method of transforming smiles, other fast, reliable options are available. Dr. Jeffrey Smith of St. Charles MO offers a range of cosmetic dentistry solutions for people who want to change the way their smile looks. We know that you want choices, and that’s what we offer!

Modern Cosmetic Dentistry

Gone are the days when dentistry offered one-size-fits-all solutions. Modern cosmetic dentistry treatments deliver a range of solutions for the unique needs of St. Charles patients. The first step in the process to transform your smile is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Smith. He’s an experienced and accomplished cosmetic dentist who can help you determine which aesthetic treatments will provide the results you desire.

At your consultation, the doctor will examine your teeth and ask you questions about your smile likes and dislikes. A picture really is worth a thousand words, so feel free to bring images of smiles that you find attractive. After discussing your goals for your smile, Dr. Smith may recommend:

  • Invisalign clear braces: This innovative orthodontic solution employs clear acrylic aligners that gently move teeth into a more attractive arrangement. Invisalign can also correct bite alignment, which is the way your top and bottom teeth fit together. Most Invisalign wearers complete treatment in less than a year.
  • Porcelain veneers: Since veneers can alter the shape and size of teeth, they can be used to close small gaps or more aesthetically align the teeth that show when you smile. It just takes a few visits to our St. Charles dentist’s office to design and apply porcelain veneers. This custom cosmetic dentistry solution can last up to 15 years.
  • Cosmetic bonding: This aesthetic treatment is considered an economical alternative to veneers. Using composite resin tinted to match your tooth color, Dr. Smith can improve the appearance and alignment of front teeth. Bonding doesn’t last as long as veneers, but the price can be an attractive incentive to choose this cosmetic dentistry solution.
