Searching for a general dental office that you can trust to take care of your family’s dental needs can be tough. If you are looking for a dentist in the St. Louis, Crestwood, Kirkwood, Webster Groves, or Affton, MO areas who is equipped with the latest technologies and provides gentle, compassionate, non-judgmental care, you have found the right place! At Crestwood Dental Group, we provide a wide array of general dentistry services for the whole family.

Dr. James Maxwell is highly trained in advanced general dentistry techniques and has invested in the latest technologies and materials, such as laser dentistry and high-quality ceramics and composites, to provide you with the best possible care. Common general dentistry services we provide include:

  • Tooth-colored fillings – Gone are the days when having a cavity means that you need to have an unsightly silver filling placed; tooth-colored composite fillings are invisible to others when you smile or speak
  • Dental bonding – We can use the same type of tooth-colored composite material to repair issues with the shape or structure of your tooth, such as chips, breaks, or even cosmetic issues such as permanent stains or teeth that are a different size or shape for a beautiful, symmetrical smile
  • Crowns – A highly versatile dental restoration, crowns can be used to repair and protect teeth that have been damaged, replace a missing tooth on a dental implant, affix a dental bridge in place, or even change the aesthetics of a toot
  • Root canal therapy – When a tooth has become infected deep within the pulp or has severe pain or sensitivity, root canal therapy is often the best—and only—way to save your natural tooth; this treatment is highly effective at stopping pain and preventing it from returning
  • Tooth replacement options – If you are facing tooth loss, we offer a number of options to replace your missing teeth for a natural appearance and functional smile, including dental implants, full and partial dentures, all-on-4 “teeth in a day,” and dental bridges
  • …and more

At Crestwood Dental Group, we are dedicated to providing a personalized experience rather than a one-size-fits-all care approach. We take the time to perform a thorough evaluation and walk through your options with you so you can feel confident about your path towards a healthy smile. To schedule your appointment, call our office today at (314) 463-5655.

Fact or myth? Expensive toothpastes are always better than cheaper ones. Myth, different toothpastes are better for different teeth and situations. Sometimes moderately priced toothpaste can be more effective. Ask the dentist about what might be best for your teeth and always look for the ADA seal of approval.
