Our oral health partnership
Regular visits to the St. Louis Dental Center allow us to identify and treat everyday problems before they become big ones. Our approach is to partner with you in the maintenance of your oral health. General treatments usually fix problems like cavities, gum disease, and tooth decay.
A dental implant connects to the upper (maxilla) or lower (mandible) bone in your jaw. The implant is a base for individual replacement of teeth, bridges, or a denture. To have an implant, you need healthy gums and adequate bone. Integration of the implants into the bone helps your replacement teeth feel more natural, and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored material that are bonded to the front of a tooth to improve its color, shape, size, or length.
Fillings are often necessary to repair worn, damaged, or decayed teeth. A small amount of the affected tooth is removed and replaced with a durable material to prevent further damage and restore the tooth's strength.
A root canal saves a tooth that would otherwise be extracted. The unhealthy nerve, which causes the problem, is removed, allowing the tooth to be retained for a lifetime in many cases. Our modern anesthetic techniques offer a more comfortable experience for our patients.
