3 Tips For Preventing Dental Issues

Whether you have a history of trouble with tooth decay or want to keep your cavity-free streak alive, it can be a good idea to take a look at your smile care routine. The practices we put in place to manage our teeth and gums can become so familiar that we stop giving them our full attention. Unfortunately, that can lead to seemingly small mistakes that lead to bigger problems in the future. One thing to remember is that your regular dental exams are important for your overall commitment to smile care. Even if you feel confident that nothing is wrong, a checkup provides valuable feedback, and it supports you by removing plaque and tartar present on your smile during your routine cleaning. Our St. Louis, MO dentist’s office is ready to help you in times when you need to address an active problem as well as when you want to make sure your teeth will remain in good condition!

When You Decide To Whiten Your Teeth

When you decide to do something about your embarrassment over teeth stains, it can be exciting to think about what you will look like once your smile looks brighter.

A professional teeth whitening treatment provides results when stains have settled and become difficult to remove. For those who need to address discoloration from internal factors, we can discuss the benefits of other cosmetic services. (more…)

How Crowns Provide Smile Care Solutions

There are real improvements that you can see when you receive dental crowns. They can have welcome benefits for your oral health, but they are not limited to providing functional support. At our St. Louis, MO dentist’s office, we can recommend that you receive a crown that can imitate your natural tooth and provide benefits for your smile! Responding with this kind of restorative treatment can be important for addressing problems with dental decay, concerns about dental damage, and even trouble with teeth that are naturally misshapen or undersized. We can also help you feel more comfortable with your appearance and oral health by providing a new crown to replace an older one that no longer offers the support you require. (more…)
