A beautiful smile projects the image of health and can add confidence in your appearance. If you have ever considered improving the appearance of your smile, St. Anthony Village Dental Care offers a full range of services to address your cosmetic dental concerns – from small improvements to a whole new look!
If your teeth appear worn, shortened, misaligned, or do not look uniform, porcelain veneers offer a smile-improving solution!
Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like restorations that fit over the front of your teeth and can re-create your smile. At your consultation appointment, we will discuss your dream smile and what you hope to achieve with veneers. The size, shape, and shade of your new smile will be natural looking and veneers can conceal most flaws.
We remove a small amount of tooth structure to make space for your veneers so they do not look bulky or out of place. We permanently adhere your veneers to your natural tooth structure and make any final adjustments necessary to ensure a comfortable, functional bite as well as an esthetic smile.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
If you have some small chips, discolorations, or a narrow gap between your teeth you wish to eliminate, cosmetic dental bonding can provide a non-invasive and affordable way to improve your smile.
We use the same tooth-colored composite material to add to your existing tooth structure and correct small imperfections. Because bonding material is added to your teeth, you can avoid losing healthy tooth structure. We can complete most bonding procedures in one day!
We match the shade of your bonding to your natural teeth so that your smile appears seamless and natural.
It is important to note that bonding does not whiten like your natural teeth. If you would like a whiter smile, you should do so before cosmetic bonding.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Numerous over-the-counter products on the market promise a brighter, whiter smile, but they do not always deliver. With the guidance and expertise of Dr. Joseph Osterbauer, we can help find the whitening products that will work best for you.
At our St. Anthony dental office, we offer three ways to whiten your teeth:
Whitening strips – We will show you how to use whitening strips properly to get the most out of your treatment. Whitening strips work great for patients who have light staining or discoloration.
Take-home professional teeth whitening – We create custom whitening trays and provide you with whitening gel to brighten your smile in the convenience of your own home. Dr. Osterbauer will discuss the type of professional whitening gel that will work best for you and give you the results you hope to achieve.
We will go over how to use your trays, how long to wear them, and how much gel to use. You can save your custom whitening trays for future whitening.
In-office professional teeth whitening – For patients who want results fast, in-office whitening helps us get a jump start on your whiter smile by using a professional grade whitening gel application in our office. We repeat the application several times. You will notice a significant difference when you walk out the door!
