Cosmetic Dentistry

The goal for our patients is that they not only have teeth that are healthy but also to have a beautiful smile. If your smile isn’t all that it could be, perhaps you should consider cosmetic dentistry at our Chesterfield, MO dental office. We offer many different options to fit a variety of budgets.

Make an appointment today to talk to Dr. Scott Mahlin about how we can improve the look of your smile through cosmetic dentistry.

Here are some of the cosmetic treatments we offer:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental crowns
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants

Natural-Looking Tooth Restorations

When teeth are damaged, you might not be able to chew correctly. A damaged tooth can also be vulnerable to infection or further damage.

Tooth-colored fillings—Most of us will have at least one cavity in our lifetime, and with today’s tooth-colored fillings made from a composite resin material, restorations are virtually invisible. If you still have old amalgam (metal) fillings, we can replace those with durable composites for a seamless look.

Cosmetic bonding—Using the same composite material we use for tooth-colored fillings, cosmetic bonding offers a quick way to repair minor flaws in your smile. We can fix gaps, cracks, and chips—and usually in just one dental appointment.

Dental crowns—Teeth that have been weakened by a large filling might benefit from a dental crown to restore its strength. We can also use dental crowns to cover up a tooth that is damaged or stained, restoring function and form.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure—and for a good reason! It’s fast and affordable, providing dramatic results in a short amount of time. We can make custom trays for you to use with our at-home whitening treatment. Over a period of a couple of weeks, you’ll wear these trays in the privacy of your own home but with the same outcome as our in-office treatment.

Porcelain Veneers

Mimicking the same translucency of your natural teeth, porcelain veneers are ultra-thin tooth covers that go over the teeth that show when you smile. Veneers can cover up many different issues with your smile. They can add length, camouflage gapped teeth, hide misaligned teeth, and more.

Tooth Replacement

Living with missing teeth is about much more than aesthetics. Having even one missing tooth can frequently lead to even more tooth loss. Missing teeth can also make chewing and speaking more of a challenge.

Full and partial dentures—Dentures have been around for a long time, and today’s prosthetic teeth look, function, and fit better than ever.

Dental implants—Generally considered the best in tooth replacement, dental implants are placed to replace a missing tooth root. Over a healing period of a few months, they integrate and create a permanent replacement root. We can restore the implant with a dental crown to replace one missing tooth, or we can attach a dental bridge or even dentures.
