Improving Smile Beauty With Cosmetic Dentistry

October 28, 2020

Do you wish you had a more attractive smile? We understand the positive impact a beautiful smile can have, which is why your Olathe, KS, general dentists offer cosmetic entistry. With professional teeth whitening and lifelike restorations, we have the ability to transform the beauty of the smile, and also address restorative concerns along the way.

Removing Teeth Stains

How do we remove stains from the surfaces of your smile? We start by taking detailed impressions of your teeth, which we use to create a set of trays. We then send you home with these trays and a powerful bleaching gel. At home, you will add gel to the trays and wear them for about 30 to 45 minutes a day. The trays help ensure the gel is spread eventually across the smile. Over the course of a week to ten days, the teeth could be brightened by multiple shades. The leftover gel and trays can be used for touch-ups down the road to keep the smile bright.

Single Visit Repair

For some, there could be issues with a chipped tooth, or the general shape of the tooth. To correct these issues, we may recommend bonding and contouring. With dental bonding, we use composite resin, shaded to blend with the tooth, repair minor damage, mask teeth stains, lengthen worn-down teeth, and close gaps between the teeth. The process only takes one visit to complete! Contouring involves sanding and buffing the tooth to remove pits, grooves, and rough patches on the surfaces of the teeth. We also dull sharp teeth and reshape overly large teeth too. Again, both can be completed in only one sitting!

Makeovers Using Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain, which we shade to blend with surrounding teeth. The same material is often issued for crowns due to its strength, durability, and stain-resistant properties. The veneers are placed onto the front facing sides of the teeth, enabling us to correct issues with shape and color, repair minor damage, close exposed gaps, and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, in only one visit!

Straighter Teeth With Clear Aligners

For people with serious misalignment, we have an alternative to braces. With a series of clear plastic aligners, we shift the teeth into optimal positions in as little as one year, all without the need for metal braces.
