When Teeth Take On A Discolored Look

Enamel stains are often responsible for changes in the color of a person’s smile. There are a wide variety of foods and drinks that can leave these stains, and they can steadily accumulate even when your oral hygiene routine effectively prevents cavities. However, this is not the only cause of discoloration. For some individuals, problems within the tooth structure will cause changes that cause dullness and discoloration. Our St. Louis, MO dental practice can help you if you need to take on either of these issues and make your smile brighter. We can recommend treatment based on your needs in order to produce the right changes and give you lasting confidence in the way you look. (more…)

Will The Holiday Season Hurt Your Child’s Smile?

The holidays can be packed with fun activities, many of which feature an array of seasonal treats. Between the increase in sweets and the effect of traveling on daily routines, this can be a tougher time for people to keep up with good oral hygiene habits.

It may be a time where they are more vulnerable, but this does not mean there is no way to protect them. Between your own daily support and care from our St. Louis, MO dentist’s office, you can help them enjoy the holidays while remaining safe from potential problems with tooth decay! (more…)
