Platte City, MO
The health of your mouth is important. However, so, too, is its appearance. Your smile is the first thing that people notice about you. Flaws in your smile, even minor ones, can have a major impact on the quality of your smile as well as your overall confidence. Platte Valley Dental Care can help you to achieve a beautiful smile, boosting your confidence, with cosmetic dentistry.
Dental BondingDental bonding is a simple treatment used to treat minor cosmetic flaws in your teeth. This treatment uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material made up of plastic, fine glass, and other materials, to correct the appearance of your teeth and enhance your smile. The procedure is quick and non-invasive. There is no need for local anesthetic, and we do not need to alter the structure of your teeth in any way. It is also one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments available. Read more about Dental Bonding.
Inlays and OnlaysInlays and onlays are indirect fillings that are used to treat cavities in the chewing surfaces of your molars. Inlays treat cavities in the crevices of your teeth while onlays treat cavities that affect the cusps. They can be made from many materials, with porcelain being the most popular. Inlays and onlays strengthen the teeth, rather than compromising them like traditional fillings. Moreover, with porcelain, they blend in with the rest of your natural teeth, providing a seamless restoration. Read more about Inlays & Onlays.
Porcelain VeneersPorcelain veneers are another treatment used to address minor cosmetic flaws. These are thin, shell-like structures that are made to be bonded to the front surfaces of damaged teeth. To place them, a small amount of tooth enamel needs to be removed. This ensures that the veneers can sit perfectly in with the rest of your natural smile. Porcelain veneers can be stained to match the color of your natural teeth while also reflecting light just like real tooth enamel. Read more about Porcelain Veneers.
Placing Dental CrownsWhen it comes to improving the structural integrity of a tooth, dental crowns take the top spot. Crowns are non-removable tooth covers that are placed and cemented on the visible portions of a tooth. They encase a natural tooth entirely. Sometimes, a dentist can fit dental crowns that go past the gumline down to touch the tooth’s surface. At Platte Valley Dental Care we utilize dental crowns for a variety of tooth problems. Our dentist, after doing an exam, will decide whether crowns are the go-to option or an alternative treatment may be done. Read more about Placing Dental Crowns.
Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening is performed to eliminate discoloration from your teeth. There are a couple of different ways in which your teeth can be professionally whitened. An in-office procedure called chairside whitening requires only a single appointment and an hour of your time. Results are noticeable immediately. Your teeth can also be professionally whitened from the comfort of your own home with whitening trays. We create custom trays based on impressions of your mouth.
You are provided with these trays and the whitening gel. They are meant to be worn twice a day for a few hours or once overnight while you sleep. The length of your treatment will depend upon your degree of staining and your specific goals. Read more about Teeth Whitening.

Invisalign®Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces. This treatment uses clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth, improving the quality of your smile. The aligners practically disappear from view when placed on your teeth. No one will be able to tell that they are there during the course of your treatment. In addition to improving your smile, Invisalign can also help to improve your oral health and your quality of life. Read more about Invisalign®.
