If nature and genetics didn’t provide you with a great smile, you can do something about it. Cosmetic dental procedures can turn your cosmetic dentistryordinary smile into a spectacular statement about you. Dr. Thomas Kemlage and Dr. Andrew Kelmage at Kemlage Family Dentistry in Fenton, MO, want to tell you about three important cosmetic dental procedures that can enhance your smile.

Dental bonding uses a material known as composite. In liquid form, composite can be shaped and sculpted perfectly to match your existing teeth. A color of composite is selected to match your tooth color, creating a virtually invisible restorative treatment. After the composite is placed, the material is hardened using a high-tech curing light. Composite bonding is the perfect choice to fix these unsightly dental issues:

  • Cracks, chips or breaks in your teeth
  • Discolorations and stains from medications or smoking
  • Excessive wear due to aging or bite problems
  • Abnormally shaped teeth due to genetics

Contouring is a procedure that can be done independently or combined with bonding. Contouring can reshape teeth to create a harmonious, aesthetically beautiful smile.

Veneers can make a dramatic difference in your smile. They are thin shells of porcelain that are cemented onto the front surfaces of your teeth. Veneers are a conservative treatment because your dentists only remove a minimal amount of tooth surface, just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers. Veneers can correct aesthetic issues such as:

  • Cracks, chips, fracture lines and enamel defects
  • Discolorations and stains
  • Slight gaps or overlaps between teeth
  • Abnormally shaped teeth

These are just a few of the services available at Kemlage Family Dentistry. For a complete listing of treatments, please visit the services page on the website at http://www.kemlagefamilydentistry.com/services.html
