A Smile Makeover Can Help You Look and Feel Your Best
Your smile is one of the most noticeable, expressive aspects of your appearance. Feeling confident about your smile allows your personality to shine through, making a lasting positive impression on everyone around you. Dr. Byron J. Nordhus provides custom smile makeover treatments at his Wichita practice, helping patients transform their smiles with combinations of teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, gum reshaping, and other treatments. He will tailor your treatment plan to your unique needs and goals to give you a beautiful smile and boosted confidence.

We offer a full suite of cosmetic dentistry procedures, and Dr. Nordhus will recommend treatments to help you achieve the smile you envision. If you are concerned about long, disproportionate, slightly misshapen, or chipped teeth, Dr. Nordhus can perform recontouring, a process of shaping your enamel for a more symmetrical look. He can also conceal chips or cracks with dental bonding, using a tooth-colored filling material to restore the texture and color of your tooth.
For more complex cases, Dr. Nordhus may recommend porcelain veneers. These thin shells are placed on the front surface of the tooth to conceal imperfections such as chips, cracks, gaps, and inconsistent shaping. Veneers are often used in combination with laser gum reshaping, which uses a special laser to contour uneven or excessive gum tissue. Dr. Nordhus can also replace more noticeable amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings for a more natural look. For patients with a misaligned smile, he may suggest Invisalign®, a discreet alternative to traditional braces that uses a set of clear plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth. Dr. Nordhus will examine your teeth, your facial structure, and other aspects of your appearance to determine which treatment options will achieve your desired results.
As a teenager, Dr. Nordhus had braces, and he remembers how the results of his treatment boosted his self-confidence. He understands that enhancing your smile is a uniquely personal process, so he will take the time to listen carefully to your goals and plan your treatment accordingly. Dr. Nordhus will patiently explain his recommendations so you can make an informed decision about the course of treatment you wish to take. You can feel confident knowing that he will be with you every step of the way, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction. We offer CareCredit℠ financing to make the cost of treatment affordable.
Beauty with Precision
Dr. Nordhus has been practicing dentistry for more than 15 years, and performs each of our cosmetic treatments with the utmost care. To ensure that you experience beautiful results, we also use some of the latest digital dental technology. With our iTero™ intraoral digital scanner, we can take digital impressions of your teeth to craft veneers and other prosthodontics that fit your smile precisely and provide the best aesthetics. We also use this scanner to prepare Invisalign® treatment for patients, ensuring beautiful results.
We are happy to be the first office in Kansas to provide the Solea Laser, a hard-tissue laser that removes decay from within your teeth with ease. The Solea laser takes the place of a traditional dental drill, which requires anesthetic shots to numb the area where patients are receiving treatment. Using the Solea laser, Dr. Nordhus can efficiently remove decay without the need for any type of shots.
