What Is Cosmetic Dentistry? And How Can It Help the Residents of Wichita, KS?

Woman with bright smile

Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental procedure that can improve the appearance of your smile. Though the procedures aren't usually necessary to improve the functionality of your mouth, they can sometimes offer similar benefits as restorative dentistry procedures. After a comprehensive exam, our dentist can perform one cosmetic procedure or a combination of procedures to fully rejuvenate your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a versatile treatment that cosmetic dentists use to correct a variety of imperfections while improving the symmetry and beauty of your smile. These thin, durable shells cover the front surfaces of your teeth. When in place, veneers conceal stains, discoloration, minor misalignments, chips, cracks, and unevenly spaced teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening bleaches extrinsic stains, giving you a brighter, whiter smile. A 90-minute in-office application of whitening gel produces immediate cosmetic results. We also offer convenient take-home kits so you can bleach your teeth without a trip to the dentist's office. To suit your needs, we offer KöR® deep bleaching and surface whitening.

If you wish to straighten your smile without conspicuous metal braces, Invisalign is an excellent alternative that is discreet and convenient. Using a series of clear plastic aligner trays, the Invisalign system gradually shifts your teeth into proper alignment. We offer different Invisalign packages, including Invisalign First for children.

Dental Bonding

If you have cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth, dental bonding can improve the appearance your smile. During dental bonding treatment, a dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin that fills or covers cosmetic imperfections. The bonding material is custom matched to the shade of your teeth for natural-looking results.

Laser Gum Reshaping

If you have uneven or excessive gum tissue, a dentist can use a safe soft tissue laser to reshape your gumline. This high-tech tool cauterizes and seals the gums while cutting. This results in less bleeding and a lower risk of infection than traditional gum shaping techniques. Laser gum contouring creates an attractive new frame for your teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Rather than the metal fillings of the past, many dentists offer tooth-colored fillings to restore damaged or decayed teeth. This metal-free material provides better cosmetic outcomes than traditional amalgam fillings while retaining proper shape and structure. With good oral hygiene, your tooth-colored fillings can last for many years.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are often considered a restorative dentistry procedure. Yet porcelain and porcelain fused to metal crowns have a number of cosmetic uses, particularly when treating severely fractured teeth. Cosmetic dentists use these strong aesthetic caps to protect a damaged tooth while improving the overall aesthetics of a patient's smile.

Given how many dental imperfections can detract from your smile, a single treatment will not be enough to address complex dental problems. That's when a smile makeover is the best option. Dr. Nordhus will combine several cosmetic procedures into a single treatment plan. He can also incorporate restorative options such as dental implants into your makeover, enhancing the beauty of your smile and your dental health.

Appear Inviting

Smiles are friendly, inviting, and can make you seem more approachable to your peers. Smiles can put people at ease and even encourage feelings of happiness in others.
