O'Connor, you no longer have to live with imperfect teeth that detract from your appearance and embarrass you. Our team can help you get the smile you have always wanted by matching your unique needs with the right cosmetic treatment option.
What Are My Options for Cosmetic Dentistry?
There are a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can be used to enhance the appearance of your smile; Dr. O'Connor will help you determine which type is right for you. At your first appointment, he will use facial photography, 3D imaging technology, and a thorough exam to make recommendations about what treatments will help you meet your goal smile. Some of the procedures offered by our St. Louis cosmetic dental office include:
• Porcelain inlays and onlays to repair cracks and blemishes
• Porcelain fixed bridges for replacing multiple teeth
• Porcelain veneers to cover damaged, severely discolored, or disfigured teeth
• Porcelain crowns for protecting damaged teeth
• Composite fillings for repairing cavities discreetly
• Teeth whitening to remove stains and discoloration
What Is a Cosmetic Dentistry Procedure Like?
For simple cosmetic dentistry procedures, Dr. O'Connor uses simple local anesthesia or nitrous oxide to ensure patient comfort. Longer procedures may involve the use of conscious oral sedation. No matter what type of procedure you're undergoing, our team will put your comfort first to make the experience as simple and hassle-free as possible.
In most cases, you can return to work the same day as a cosmetic dentistry procedure. In some cases, you may need to avoid hard or sticky foods for a few days after your appointment. Dr. O'Connor will fully review after-care instructions with you on the day of your appointment.
