Cosmetic Dentistry Overview

The DentaLink | Cosmetic Dentistry | Dentist Despers
Dr. Allan Link and the caring staff at TheDentaLink take pride in offering cosmetic dental work to residents of the St. Louis area. A comfortable dental experience, start to finish, and the cleaner, brighter smile that results from experienced cosmetic dentistry, can be life-changing.

As a past speaker at the National Meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a member of the International Academy of Dental Facial Esthetics, Dr. Link is a true advocate. He doesn't just look at teeth – he looks at what teeth can do for the entire face, supporting it structurally and enhancing lip fullness. TheDentaLink will work with your plastic surgeon, who understands that you need good dental support for long-lasting results. With a conservative philosophy he believes in, whenever possible, restoring natural teeth.

TheDentaLink provides cosmetic procedures such as:

  • Cosmetic laser dentistry
  • Our state-of-the-art laser technology is more comfortable and predictable, with shorter recovery, time than a scalpel. We see your teeth as a work of art and your gums as a frame for that painting. Using lasers, we shape that frame to illuminate the beauty of your smile.
  • Veneers and Lumineers©
  • Permanent coverings that enhance the shape, size, and color of your teeth.
  • Snap-On Smile and Snap-It!
  • Removable veneers for special occasions or as a quick, affordable smile fix with no shots or grinding.
  • Invisalign and Red White and Blue invisible braces (an economical alternative to traditional orthodontics)
  • Dental implants
  • Traditional and mini-implants to replace lost or missing teeth.
  • Teeth whitening
  • Our most commonly requested cosmetic procedure, with several options available.
  • Metal-free restorations
  • Non-metal crowns and tooth-colored fillings.
  • Partial and full smile makeovers!

With LUMISmile technology, we'll provide (at no charge) a computer-generated picture of how you'll look in your new smile, to help you make good decisions about an investment in cosmetic dentistry.

Nothing makes you feel good like a beautiful smile. Not only do you look better, the physical act of smiling relieves tension. Call TheDentaLink today to find out how Dr. Link can give you the smile of your dreams.

Dental Cosmetic Treatment

The DentaLink | Cosmetic Dentistry | Dentist Despers
While patients often think of visiting their dentist for fillings, cleanings, and examinations, dentists in the community can also be helpful in enhancing the appearance of the smile. Cosmetic dental treatments are used to improve the smile's aesthetics. They are super affordable and make dramatic changes to improve the confidence of patients.

Several cosmetic procedures are performed at the practice of TheDentaLink, LLC:

  • Dentures - the replacement of missing teeth can be achieved with dentures. Our partial dentures are made with comfortable, discreet DuraFlex materials and our full dentures are fabricated using 3D printing.
  • Veneers - porcelain veneers can provide coverage of imperfections. These thin ceramic facings are bonded into place over the front of teeth and can last several years with proper care.
  • Orthodontics - using Invisalign orthodontics, patients can easily improve the alignment of their smile in a discreet way with clear aligner trays.
  • Dental implants - dental implants are versatile posts. They are used to replace a single tooth, stabilize dentures, or anchor a dental bridge in place.
  • Teeth whitening - professional whitening is the way to go! When over-the-counter products fail to provide noticeable results, our team can use stronger bleaching products for dramatic changes.
  • Gum contouring - patients struggling with the appearance of a "gummy smile" or an uneven gum line can enjoy our cosmetic laser that can reshape the gum line and frame the smile.
  • Metal-free restorations - metal does not have a place in the smile, which is why we offer metal-free restorations including bridges and crowns. These are made of beautiful ceramics to ensure quality enhancements.
  • Composite resin bonding - also known as dental bonding, composite resin bonding is used to fix broken or unsightly teeth. It is an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers and is completed in just one appointment.

Dr. Allan Link and his team are experienced providers of cosmetic dental treatment for new and existing patients in their two local practices. Whether you are located in Ballwin or Saint Louis, we have a practice ready available for you. Contact us today to book an appointment at TheDentaLink, LLC! 

Cosmetic Procedures

The DentaLink | Cosmetic Dentistry | Dentist Despers
Improving the aesthetics of the smile is easy with a dentist who offers cosmetic procedures. Dr. Allan Link and his team are experienced in providing cosmetic dentistry options for new and existing patients at TheDentaLink, LLC. They serve patients in and around the areas of Saint Louis and Ballwin. This practice also offers general, preventative, and restorative dentistry options.

Cosmetic procedures are used to enhance the appearance of the smile. When patients are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth, the color of their smile, or even the appearance of their gum tissues, our team can help. From simple teeth whitening procedures to extensive smile makeovers, we have it all!

Teeth Whitening
Over-the-counter whitening products often fail to provide the results patients hope to achieve. We offer professional-grade options for patients ready for fast, beautiful smiles!

Dental Implants
Replacing a missing tooth can be achieved with dental implants, which restore the smile for a lifetime with minimal care and attention.

At TheDentaLink, LLC, we provide alternatives to traditional orthodontics including our Invisalign service. Invisalign uses clear trays to reposition the teeth gently into better alignment.

Porcelain veneers are commonly used to cover imperfections of the natural teeth including misalignment, breakage, and spacing. We offer both traditional veneers and no-prep Lumineers.

When all the teeth in the dental arch are lost or extracted, it is important to find a way to repair the smile quickly and effectively. Many of our patients choose full cosmetic dentures, which are created in our office using today's 3D printing technology for optimum fit and function.

Composite Bonding
Also known as "dental bonding," composite resin bonding is used to improve aesthetics. It is a great alternative to more expensive solutions such as veneers and is often completed in just one visit.

At TheDentaLink, LLC, we offer two convenient locations for patients including offices in the Saint Louis community as well as Ballwin, MO. Contact our practice today to book a consultation appointment with Dr. Allan Link to learn more about cosmetic dental procedures used to enhance the smile! 

Cosmetic Laser Dentistry

The DentaLink | Cosmetic Dentistry | Dentist Despers

At the practice of TheDentaLink, LLC, cosmetic dentistry solutions are readily available for patients. We want everyone to have access to procedures that can enhance the smile and give individuals the confidence they need. From veneers to teeth whitening and dental bridges to dental implants, we offer it all. Patients worried about the appearance of their gum tissue along the dental arch may want to speak to our team about gum contouring solutions.

Gum contouring is often done to fix what patients refer to as a "gummy smile." A gummy smile is a smile in which there is excess gum tissue. It can cause teeth to look extremely short and throw off the natural balance of the smile. Dr. Allan Link and his team can address this by removing some of the gum tissue for a more attractive look.

To accomplish this, our team provides laser dentistry. Lasers ensure better comfort for patients while facilitating faster healing and reduced bleeding. They help in providing a precise improvement that cannot be achieved with traditional tissue cutting. Patients find this amazing technology makes treatments easier to undergo with less anxiety. Even so, our dentist provides sedation for fearful patients who may feel overwhelmed at the idea of undergoing a treatment such as gum contouring. This treatment is completely safe when performed with lasers cleared by the FDA for cosmetic purposes.

Dramatic results are achieved with laser gum contouring, and many patients wish they had the procedure done years before! The confidence patients experience with this treatment is often worth every penny paid. Since this is an elective procedure, most dental insurance providers will not offer coverage. However, our practice offers financing plans for cosmetic procedures such as this.

Dr. Allan Link and his team are dedicated to providing patients with comprehensive dental care in his state-of-the-art facility. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of cosmetic dentistry and the laser treatments available, contact TheDentaLink, LLC to book a consultation appointment. We welcome new and existing patients of all ages in our family-friendly dental practice.
