Dalin-Feigenbaum Dental Associates, LTD
11722 Studt Ave.
St. Louis, MO 63141
(314) 567-5612

Dr. Dalin and Dr. Feigenbaum offer one treatment that is highly effective in transforming your smile. These dentists found the typical in-office treatment to cause dehydration in patients. Since additional treatment was required at home, they opted for the at-home treatment with a much more potent bleach solution than offered at most places. You’ll go home with a bleaching tray to be worn an hour a day and dramatic results will appear after just a couple of weeks.Related: Top Tattoo Parlors in St. Louis

Masterpiece Smiles
269 Clarkson Road
Ellisville, MO 63011
(636) 394-5200

Dr. Mike Frith of Ellisville is the proud dentist behind many fabulous smiles in the St. Louis area. His work also earned him recognition among his peers when the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry announced him as the first accredited cosmetic dentist in St. Louis. Dr. Frith prefers a power-bleaching method to whiten teeth as it results in a faster process for the patient. The in-office treatment consists of two parts to amplify the white factor in your new smile. After molding a tray to fit your smile, you wear the tray and solution for two weeks. The second part takes place in the office where Dr. Frith applies an additional solution to get the ideal whiteness for your teeth. Be sure to sign up for the “whitening for life” program for an extra $99, and as long as you keep up with your regular visits, you can continually touch up that white smile for the rest of your life.
