Hannibal Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

Serving Hannibal and St. Louis, Missouri and Quincy, Illinois areas

The whole field of dentistry has improved immensely in recent decades over what our grandparents used to know. Computers and lasers have made dental work faster, less painful, and easier to talk about with your dentist. They have also given rise to the field of cosmetic dentistry. Traditional dentistry still focuses on dental repair, basic oral hygiene and general dentistry procedures like dentures and partials. But cosmetic dentistry has a different focus.

A cosmetic dentist like Dr. Janes looks at your teeth and gums as your “smile” – a dynamic part of you, rather than pieces of tooth enamel or gum tissue. A person’s smile includes their entire facial shape, their jawline, the way they hold and move the head, and their overall posture. Dr. Janes considers all these things when he begins planning your dental work.

Smile Makeovers have been publicized and popularized by TV shows – but they are genuinely dramatic events in the life of whoever has them. They transform your smile, while keeping it natural-looking and in harmony with your overall appearance and personality. That is because cosmetic dentistry is part science and also part artwork. A good eye is required for a general dentist to become a successful cosmetic dentist.

Dr. Janes is also a fully-trained neuromuscular dentist. That means he can correct your bite – the way the upper and lower teeth come together – and your jaw joint alignment. You can read more about this on our Neuromuscular Dentistry and TMD page, and the other pages which are linked to it.
