When you decide to receive a smile makeover in Leawood, we will help you determine which steps and procedures are right for your needs. The first step in any smile makeover is to visit our office for a thorough overview of your teeth. Once we check your teeth and gums, we will discuss what aspects of them you are unhappy with. After this process, we will determine the best cosmetic improvement procedures that we can use to enhance your smile.
The first cosmetic procedure we normally suggest is a teeth whitening. It may sound basic, but teeth whitening can actually make a drastic difference in your appearance. When your teeth are whiter, they automatically appear like they are in better health, and they sometimes even seem straighter.
If your teeth are severely misaligned or displaced, we may suggest that you undergo a straightening treatment, like braces before we consider any further cosmetic improvements. A dental straightening will align your teeth and provide you with a more attractive and healthier smile. When you have crooked teeth, you are more susceptible to decay because important areas of your teeth are more challenging to reach to remove bacteria and plaque. Once your teeth are straighter, you will be more able to take care of them adequately, and your appearance will be greatly improved. Afterwards, you may not require any further treatments as part of your smile makeover in Leawood.
If you do not want to go through straightening treatment or you have other dental problems like discoloration, damaged enamel, or slightly overlapping teeth, we often suggest dental veneers. Dental veneers are a thin, and normally, porcelain shell that is bonded to the front of your teeth with a durable dental glue. Veneers are resilient to staining and are strong due to their material. They also gain extra stability from being attached to your teeth. Our veneers cover a variety of flaws with a natural-looking finish. In most cases, other people will not be able to tell that your veneers are not your natural teeth. This is a quick and easy smile makeover procedure.
If you have missing teeth, it can be beneficial to consider including dental replacements as part of your smile makeover in Leawood. We offer many different forms of replacements that range in permanency including bridges and dental implants. We normally encourage patients to consider dental implants. Dental implants are the most attractive and the most permanent dental replacement option available. Our implants will be securely anchored to your jawbone with a rod made of materials that are compatible with your bone and oral tissue. The implant rod will then be covered with a tooth-colored crown that will blend in naturally with your other teeth. Our dental implants are so permanent that they work just like your natural teeth did.
We offer several other cosmetic dental improvement procedures in addition to these. When you visit our office, we will go over all of your options and create the perfect smile makeover plan for your needs. Before you know it, you will have a new smile that you love.
