the primary focus of smile design is to reach the best aesthetic result for your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the visual appearance of your teeth, mouth, and smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Traditional dental treatments focus on oral hygiene and the prevention, diagnosing, and correction of oral disease. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the visual appearance of your teeth, mouth, and smile. Missouri River Dental has accomplished these goals with a combination of our skills, artistry, and science, all designed for your personal treatment plan. Our team has been trained to focus on preserving as much of your natural teeth as reasonably possible, to attain a natural looking repair, while maintaining or improving your surrounding bone and gum tissue. General or family dentists usually address dental problems that require necessary treatment, whereas cosmetic dentistry can provide an elective, or desired, treatment or services.

 

The entire team at Missouri River Dental is committed to providing a patient experience unlike any other. The foundation of that philosophy is our personable and professional staff. We collectively strive to blend technology, art, and healthcare for each patient. Our goal is to provide you with an individualized patient experience unlike any other you have had at a dental office. We strive to create a positive and comfortable atmosphere for our patients while still meeting their dental needs, wishes, and exceeding expectations.

Which Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Benefits You?

There are a few factors to consider when Missouri River Dental designs your cosmetic dentistry treatment plan. Not all procedures are appropriate for you, and you may have other dental concerns that could eliminate specific procedures from your plan. Before our team considers performing any cosmetic dentistry procedure, the health and integrity of your teeth, gums, and jawbone must be evaluated.

 

To create your personal treatment plan, we begin with a consultation appointment. At this visit, we will complete a series of examinations to evaluate your oral health in its current condition. These exams might include:

 

  • A thorough oral exam including teeth, gums, face, neck, and all soft tissues.
  • A periodontal exam of your gums, and an oral cancer exam.
  • X-rays if beneficial, the number and types depending on your specific need.
  • Impressions of both arches if needed.
  • A bite analysis and a TMJ analysis.
  • Identifying and documenting any existing issues and imperfections.

 

After the necessary exams are completed, we will design a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan perfect for enhancing your smile. You could require more extensive restorations due to the loss of functionality or the spread of disease and decay. The necessary exams will develop and establish the baseline for your plan.

 

If you currently have healthy teeth, you may only be looking for a restoration option that addresses abnormally shaped teeth or unsightly discoloration. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry treatment, each patient is utterly unique. It is essential for your cosmetic dental plan to be created for your personal circumstances to achieve your best results.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Take?

The duration of each cosmetic procedure will vary. If your treatment plan requires more than one restoration appointment, the process will take a little longer. With dental technology constantly improving and the updates that we continue to implement at Missouri River Dental, the process of completing most cosmetic procedures continues to become more efficient.

 

Teeth whitening is simple and quick whereas a dental implant might take several months. You will differ in the procedures your treatment plan recommends.
