Cosmetic Dentistry in St. Paul, MN
The most important quality in all cosmetic enhancement is a natural appearance, whether it is repairing a single fractured tooth or creating an entirely new smile. When it comes to the appearance and function of your teeth, experience counts. Dr. O’Neill has over thirty years of experience creating beautiful, healthy, natural-looking smiles. Before opening his private practice, he practiced at the prestigious San Francisco Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, where he perfected the art of creating beautiful smiles.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Having a bright, vibrant smile can give you added confidence in your appearance. Since teeth naturally darken with age, a white smile can even make you look younger! At Highgrove Dental Care, we offer a professional whitening system that gives most patients exceptional results.
We begin by taking impressions of your teeth in order to create custom whitening trays. Custom whitening trays are superior to the over-the-counter variety for several reasons:
Reliable results – Because your trays fit your teeth snugly and were designed specifically for you, you achieve better results. Professional strength whitening gel is superior to the over-the-counter products. Since you will be whitening your teeth under the supervision of Dr. O’Neill, his guidance will help you achieve your best results quickly.
Fewer side effects – Over-the-counter products can be difficult to use and may cause side effects like sensitivity and tender gums. Your custom trays keep your whitening gel where it belongs, limiting the amount that comes into contact with your gums.
We will take a before-and-after shade of your teeth to measure your results. Most patients see an improvement of several shades after just a couple of weeks.
Tooth-Colored Fillings and Cosmetic Bonding
Having dark-colored restorations can make your entire tooth look dark. We can replace your silver amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings that will not affect the appearance of your smile.
Dental bonding – We can use the same tooth-colored composite material to make cosmetic improvements to your smile with dental bonding. Bonding works by adding composite material to your natural tooth structure to make small repairs such as filling gaps, repairing chips, and reshaping your teeth. It is non-invasive, and we do it right in our office!
Porcelain veneers – When you want to completely change the look of your smile, custom porcelain veneers may offer the best results. Useful in changing the shape, size, color, and alignment of your teeth, porcelain veneers allow us to create natural, beautiful smiles.
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain covers that fit over the face of your anterior teeth. Since they are cosmetic in nature, we only need to place veneers on the teeth that are visible when you smile. Our veneers are less invasive than many types, which means more comfortable treatment and less sensitivity.
