Do you wish you could transform the appearance of your smile? With cosmetic treatments, we can enhance the shade and shape of your teeth, often in only one visit! In today’s blog, your Kansas City, MO, dentist talks about cosmetic dentistry, and how we can use these treatments to improve smile beauty.
First, we will offer a consultation to talk to you about your smile and what you hope to see improved. We then examine your teeth and gums thoroughly to assess the cause and extent of your esthetic concerns. From there, we will create a custom treatment plan that uses one or more of these treatments to improve the overall beauty of your smile.
Teeth stains are a common complaint, as multiple factors could lead to dental discoloration. For dramatic and long-lasting results, you should undergo professional teeth whitening treatment instead of relying on over-the-counter strips and toothpastes. Our team can provide a custom-made set of trays that fit your teeth comfortably. We then send these home with you, along with multiple syringes of a powerful bleaching gel. You simply fill the trays with the gel and wear them daily for the amount of time our team recommends. The trays keep the results even across your smile, and you could see your smile become eight shades bright in as little as one to two weeks!
Bonding and Contouring
With bonding and contouring, we can tackle multiple issues with your smile’s appearance in only one visit. For the bonding portion, we will use the same composite resin we employ as part of our fillings. This lifelike material can be color matched for your teeth, and used to repair damage, correct misshapen teeth, mask teeth stains, and close embarrassing gaps between teeth. Contouring involves sanding and buffing the outer structure to correct minor damage, address overly large or misshapen teeth, and dull sharp, jagged, or pointed portions of structure. We can even smooth out pits, groves, and rough patches in the outer surfaces!
If you have an uneven gum line or excessive gum tissues, this could make teeth appear small, uneven, or misshapen. With gum contouring, we employ advanced dental lasers to gently reshape the line and remove excess issues, so your smile is transformed in one visit. Lasers also prevent swelling, bleeding, and infection, and require little to no anesthesia, so you can return to normal activities after a day of rest.
These are thin shells of porcelain that we place onto the front of each tooth, instantly altering the color and shape. For many, these offer a smile makeover in as little as two visits. Each is custom-made from porcelain, which we color-match to blend with your smile. In as little as two visits, we can address discoloration, damaged teeth, misshapen structure, gaps between teeth, and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment too.
If you have dental misalignment, you may assume braces are your only route to an even smile. But with clear aligners, made from a BPA-free place and custom-made to fit comfortably, we can use a series of them to shift the teeth into optimal position. They’re removable, which makes eating and brushing/flossing easier, and they provide optimal results in as little as one year to 18 months for some patients.
Botox and Dermal Fillers
Botox and dermal fillers can be used to fight common signs of aging, removing fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nose, mouth, and the forehead. We administer them through injections at specific places on your face, and the results can last for months to come. These can be administered during routine checkup and cleaning visits too. In addition to improving facial esthetics, we can use these to relax muscles in the jaw and face, fighting painful symptoms of TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding) and bring relief.
