A Comparison of Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Going to the dentist for cosmetic dentistry can be a great way to ensure that your smile stays in tip-top shape, while ensuring complete oral health.

But what cosmetic dentistry procedures actually work and are worth your time? With the right knowledge and the advice of your dentist, you can know exactly what it takes to achieve the smile you have always wanted.

Cosmetic dentistry treatments

While many think of cosmetic dentistry only as invasive procedures, there are simple procedures to be aware of as well.

The following are the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Teeth whitening

First, teeth whitening is the easiest, least expensive and quickest cosmetic dentistry procedure to improve your smile.

While there are over-the-counter teeth whitening kits, it is best to have your teeth whitened at a dental office, as they have stronger whitening solutions and can ensure the treatment is administered in a safe way.

In some cases, individuals with sensitive enamel can actually damage their teeth with over-the-counter solutions, which is why it is important to consult with a dentist before starting teeth whitening. However, a properly administered, professional teeth whitening treatment can quickly remove stains and leave you with a beautiful, fully white smile.

Dental veneers

Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic dentistry treatment option that is able to repair and improve various tooth problems, including restoring the appearance of chipped teeth, worn teeth or severely stained teeth. There are two different types of dental veneers a dentist may use: composite or porcelain veneers.

Dental veneers are a great way to restore the length, shape and color of a tooth and work for anyone looking to improve a smile quickly without an invasive procedure.

Originally referred to as “Hollywood teeth,” dental veneers have since been made affordable and can benefit your smile in a tremendous way.

Composite bonding

For anyone suffering from chipped teeth, cracked teeth or worn enamel, composite bonding is an excellent way to restore their look, feel and function completely.

Composite bonding, which is one of the most common and most affordable cosmetic dentistry treatment options, is performed by filling in a cavity or chipped part of a tooth, and then bonding it and securing it into place with a high-intensity light.

This cosmetic dentistry procedure can be done in one simple dental visit, and you can walk out with a beautiful, full smile, especially if receiving a deep cleaning and teeth whitening on the same visit.

Dental implants

Dental implants are perhaps the best cosmetic dentistry treatment option to replace missing teeth.

A dental implant is placed through a surgical procedure in which the implant is put into the gums and next to the jawbone, and then fused into place. The artificial tooth is then placed, leaving you with a tooth that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

Although it may seem invasive, a dental implant is a fairly simple procedure for most dentists.

DentistWe believe in the old saying “prevention is better than cure.” Every one of our patients gets the benefit of a dentist who spends time on oral hygiene education along with providing tips for preventing cavities and infections. While providing preventative care, we practice a form of holistic dental medicine. We will spend as long as it takes to ensure that your teeth remain clean, diseases free, and in the best shape possible, so that you never have to experience a dental emergency or a situation where medical intervention is required.

Professional dental care

Naturally, if a situation does arise where we have to provide one with intervention, the best place to be is with a dentist. We will bring all of our experience to bear so that we can cure whatever ails the patient as fast and as efficiently as possible. Once we have rid the patient of the dental problem, we can turn our attention to assuring that the problem never reoccurs. To do this, we will give patients all the tools they need. The most powerful of all tools that any medical provider can give a patient is information. The better informed a patient is, the more likely it is that the patient will make the right choices for his or her teeth.

As a dentist, we know that the information age has made things far more accessible to everyone, which has in a sense taken away the personal touch. We love it when a patient comes to our office with questions, so the internet is definitely a great resource. As long as patients are using the internet as a way to supplement information, and to know when it is time to call us for help, it can be an outstanding tool. For those seeking better ways of caring for their teeth, the same is true.

Find an accurate source of dental information

Where it becomes challenging is when the information online is highly technical or confusing. What patients need to remember is twofold. First, the internet has a massive size and scope. Each day there are millions of people around the world searching for a million things. As people look for everything from dental crowns to baseball caps, there are an equal number of websites and experts that offer advice. This leads to the second thing patients should remember. None of the people online are addressing one's needs specifically because they are writing for a broader audience.

There is only one place for you to get the kind of personalized information you need to make important dental and oral health decisions, and that is with your dentist. Nothing beats being able to talk to a medical provider face to face when you want to have answers about your dental health. As a dentist, we provide information about oral health on our blog but always suggest visiting our office for an official diagnosis so that we can provide you with details about your health and create a treatment plan that is designed to fit your needs.

Cosmetic DentistAs a cosmetic dentist in Leawood, we have a myopic focus on the aesthetics and appearance of your teeth. We have found that there is a case to be made for ensuring that your teeth look as good as they function. Smiles are considered a powerful tool in your tool chest. The better your smile, the higher your advantage at work and in social settings. As such, we have perfected a number of different techniques and procedures to ensure that your teeth and the rest of your mouth, remain in optimal condition aesthetically.  With the vast array of knowledge on the internet, what a cosmetic dentist does has become well known to the general public.

Our bread and butter, or daily, procedures consist of things that you have either heard of, read about or know someone that uses them. These include teeth whitening for brighter, whiter teeth, braces to straighten teeth, dental implants and dentures to replace lost teeth, and dental crowns of veneers to fix cracked and broken teeth. There are also a few procedures that Asha Dental performs that are not as well known, outside of cosmetic dentist circles. One of these involves the gums and is instrumental in improving the appearance and the health of a person's mouth.

As a cosmetic dentist, we know that your gums are as important to how you look as your teeth are. Additionally gums are critical to the health, wellbeing, and sustenance of your mouth. Unfortunately, gums come under frequent attack from gum diseases. One disease, periodontitis, caused the gums to become separated from the teeth. This unnatural separation leads to the formation of deep pockets within the gums themselves. The reason these pockets need to be removed is that they are unsightly and because they provide an ideal hiding spot for plaque. It is extraordinarily hard to brush away the plaque in these deep crevices, which in turn means that you will have a buildup of plaque bacteria inside these pockets which could lead to additional infections or diseases based on your already weakened immune system.

Removing the pockets is the only option. To do so, we will first numb your gums with a local anesthesia that is injected directly into the gums. Once the gums are sufficiently numb, we will remove the excess loose gum tissue and contour the gums so that they do not lose their shape. Finally, we may place putty over the gums to allow them protection and sufficient time to heal.

Gum contouring is another one of those procedures that we do to make sure that your mouth looks its very best. Sometimes a person has gums that are too long. This can have the effect of giving you a gummy smile, which can be fixed by removing the excess gum tissue. At other times, we need to graft to the gums because they gums are too short. Gum contouring is an easy way to make sure you have the right shape and length of gum, which can be accomplished in our clinic under local anesthesia. As a cosmetic dentist, these are two of the many ways we can improve how your gums look while also keeping them healthy.  To learn more, we invite you to call (913) 440-4199 and schedule a consultation.

Cosmetic DentistOur cosmetic dentist office can transform your smile from dull to brilliant. No matter what your particular needs are, we know how to help. Some of the most common treatments we employ are listed below to provide you with insight regarding our viable methods.

Fillings: If you need a filling to remedy a cavity, we can provide you with a tooth-colored filling that will look natural against the color of your tooth. Our fillings are durable and will protect your vulnerable teeth from more damage for years to come.

Bonding: In our cosmetic dentist office, our dental bonding is made of a similar material as our composite resin fillings, but it is used to fill in chips and cracks in your teeth to improve esthetic value. If you have a minor imperfection that you would like covered, dental bonding is an attractive and long-lasting solution that requires minimal chair time. Our bonding solution is also tooth-colored, so it blends in with your natural tooth color.

Crowns: We use crowns to cover damaged teeth that are too impaired to be fixed by a filling or bonding. They cover your entire tooth for the most protection against decay and further damage. We can offer you attractive, natural-looking crowns that match your other teeth. While natural looking, they are so durable that can withstand immense pressure and are stain resistant.

Teeth Whitening: To brighten a dull smile, our cosmetic dentist office can give you a thorough teeth whitening strategy that can be implemented as needed to achieve the white shade you desire. A whitening can transform your smile in a simple, but effective way.

Dental Veneers: Our veneers are very thin, tooth-colored shells that can be applied to the fronts of your teeth as attractive coverage for crooked or discolored teeth. Veneers are long-lasting and are a minimally invasive way to cover up dental flaws and to restore teeth that have been damaged in an accident.

Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is a semi-permanent replacement for missing teeth. If you have one missing tooth or several missing teeth, our dental bridge provides fabricated teeth that match your other ones. The bridge will fit into the gap created by your former teeth. The false teeth will be secured in place by two crown anchors attached to your strong existing teeth.

Dental Implant: A dental implant will be your most attractive and permanent replacement option. Our cosmetic dentist office will secure a titanium rod into the root opening that was left by your former tooth. This rod will be attached to the replacement tooth to hold it in place. With time, the titanium rod will graft with your jawbone to create the most permanent solution to a missing tooth.

For all your esthetic dentistry needs, our cosmetic dentist office can help. We can provide you with comprehensive care so that no imperfection is left unrefined. You will be pleased with the timely, durable, and attractive solutions we can provide for your dental needs.

Cosmetic Dentist Procedures That Will Make You Smile

Cosmetic DentistIf you have teeth you are unhappy with, modern cosmetic dentist office procedures make it easier than ever before to attain the smile you have always wanted. If you need a self-confidence boost, want a more attractive smile, or are concerned about health risks due to crowded teeth, we can help. We provide a variety of cosmetic dentist office procedures with the ability to improve your teeth. Learn more about the services we offer and how we can give you your best smile.

Teeth Whitening: We offer in-office and at-home whitening solutions that range in effectiveness and simplicity. We have options that can suit any budget while still providing you with whiter teeth by eliminating stains and discoloration. A simple teeth whitening cosmetic dentist office procedure can provide you with surprising results. 
Dental Bonding: If you have chipped or cracked teeth or a single discolored tooth, we can provide you with dental bonding, which covers injured teeth and imperfections with a malleable solution that is permanently hardened after being placed in the correct area. This option will quickly and easily fix small dental imperfections.
Dental Contouring: Dental contouring can be employed to align and reshape crooked or misshapen teeth. We will gently buff areas of each tooth to create a more attractively shaped structure. 
White Fillings: If you have metallic fillings and would like a tooth-colored update, we can remove your dated fillings and replace them with a more attractive option. Our white fillings will blend in with your tooth color perfectly and look natural when you smile. 
Dental Veneers: Our veneers are thin, porcelain shells bonded to the fronts of your teeth. They effectively cover discolored, misshapen, and oddly spaced teeth and also improve the look of jagged or chipped teeth edges. Veneers are customized for your individual needs and attractively cover dental flaws, improving your appearance drastically. 
Dental Implants: If you have missing teeth, you should consider receiving our dental implants instead of getting traditional dentures. Dental implants last forever, look and feel more natural, and are created to match surrounding teeth. Our implants are planted into your jawbone for a permanent foundation. 
Dental Bridges: If you don't want a removable dental replacement, but prefer to avoid the cost and procedure of dental implants, dental bridges are an excellent option. A fabricated tooth is held in a gap by two crowns placed over abutment teeth. This is a more permanent option than dentures and provides a natural looking replacement.

These are only a few of our most common cosmetic dentist office procedures that can improve the appearance and health of your teeth. Most of our treatments are minimally invasive and do not cause discomfort during or after the process. We use appropriate anesthetics as needed to offer you the most comfortable visit possible. You will be pleased with your improved smile and quick results. Our quality materials, products, and procedures provide long-lasting and beautiful teeth resilient to staining and wear.

A Cosmetic Dentist Can Improve Your Health While Improving Your Smile

Cosmetic DentistAs a cosmetic dentist, we know that the world of cosmetic dentistry is a vast, and expanding, one. Today there are a numerous procedures and process that we perform that make the science and art of cosmetic dentistry directly associated with the health of the mouth as a whole.  When you start to look at the roots of all dentistry, you will find that people embarked on a quest for better, and hence healthier, teeth because they wanted to look good. Lost teeth or blackened teeth so disturbed humanity that we created an entirely new medical group to deal with it - dentists. Today cosmetic dentistry is starting to come into its own. Not only are we committed to our core value of giving back a great smile, but we have also made a large impact on the overall health and well-being of our patient's mouths.

How can cosmetic dentistry, which even sounds like it is more focused on looks, actually influence the wellbeing of your mouth? The answer to that lies in two simple facts. First when you have better-looking teeth, you tend to make better decisions about how to treat them. For example, people who have had their teeth whitening done and are conscious about their teeth staying white will tend to avoid excessive caffeine, including tea, coffee, and cola products. This is actually a better lifestyle choice. The second way that cosmetic dentistry makes a difference in your mouth is that the actual processes we use to give you a better smile have a direct impact on the health of your mouth. In fact, cosmetic dentistry practices have become so commonplace that most people cannot even fathom a world in which a procedure like placing a dental crown over a broken tooth is not available.  In fact, a dental crown is a perfect example of how a cosmetic dentist can restore the function of a tooth while simultaneously improving its appearance.

Among common conditions that we treat, malocclusion makes a frequent appearance. A malocclusion is basically a misalignment of the teeth. People commonly see this as teeth that are overlapping, unsightly gaps between the teeth, too many teeth in the mouth, or a smile filled with crooked teeth. While malocclusion is, in and of itself, not harmful it can have some harmful effects on the mouth. When you have teeth that are misaligned and misplaced, there is a natural crowding that occurs between some teeth making it a lot harder to clean. Toothbrushes and floss are unable to get between these gaps and clear away the plaque and bacterial buildup. This then can lead to cavities, bacterial infections, and even more serious problems like gingivitis and periodontal disease. As a cosmetic dentist, we can fix these gaps and eliminate these potential problems along with the strain misaligned teeth put on the jaw, teeth, and facial muscles.

Malocclusion, because of the pressure it puts on the jaw, teeth, and muscles, can make it easier for a person to break or chip a tooth. It can also lead to excessive pressure on the temporomandibular joint, which in turn can lead to a condition known as temporomandibular joint disorder or TMJ. As a cosmetic dentist, we can address this and other oral health issues in our dental office.

Answer These Questions During a Consultation With a Cosmetic Dentist

Cosmetic DentistWhen you schedule an appointment with a cosmetic dentist, be prepared to answer questions about what you like and don't like about your smile.  The more detailed you can be the better as it will allow us to make a customized recommendation and treatment plan to address all of your concerns. The more we know about your preferences and even personality, the better job we can do at customizing the perfect smile.

Here are some questions that you should be prepared to answer:

What don't you like about your smile?  This is a big one and be prepared to share details.  For example, let us know if you don't like gaps in between your teeth rather than not liking your smile altogether.  Specifics can be very helpful.  We can certainly make recommendations based on a complete smile makeover, but it still helps to know what your main issues are.

What is your schedule like?  We need to know how much time you have available to get dental treatments and if you have a set deadline for needing the work done.  For example, if you have a major event coming up like a wedding or high school reunion you will probably want to have your smile corrected first.  Knowing the deadline allows us to determine which treatment options can be completed during that timeframe.  Simultaneously, we need to know if you have difficulty making it in for dental appointments due to work or family responsibilities.  By knowing when you are available, we can book your cosmetic dentist appointments accordingly.

What is your relationship like with coffee and wine?  If you tend to drink or eat a lot of things that can stain your teeth – tell us.  We won't scold you but will provide solutions to help keep your teeth white anyway.

How do you feel about your gums?  Do you like how your gums look or do they take up too much of your smile?  If you feel that they are the wrong size, it can be corrected with a cosmetic procedure.

Do you like the size of your teeth?  Many people feel like their teeth are either too large or too small for their smile or their frame.  These issues can also be addressed through cosmetic procedures.  Even some celebrities have had their teeth enlarged in order to avoid looking like their teeth were too childish.

How white do you want your teeth?  It is important that you are comfortable with the appearance of your smile, and this includes the shade of your teeth. Make sure to tell us how white you want your teeth to become.  Some people are uncomfortable with brilliant white because they feel it is unnatural looking where others want their teeth as white as possible.  In most cosmetic procedures, there is an element that requires us to know what shade of white you like and we can show you examples if that would be helpful.

We can address your smile challenges in our cosmetic dentist office so let us know what you do and don't like about your smile so that we can craft the perfect one.
