Regular visits to the dentist can ensure more than just a healthy mouth, but checking in with your dentist can also give you a more beautiful smile. Through a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, Dr. Anderson will have you smiling brighter, exuding more confidence, and feeling happier with your smile. His Kansas City office offers a multitude of cosmetic dentistry procedures, which we have outlined below.
Are you not satisfied with your smile? Discolored or chipped teeth, gaps in between teeth and missing teeth all have the potential to negatively impact one’s ability to be self-confident, and can also make eating, chewing and drinking more complicated. Most of the above issues can be remedied by routine cosmetic dentistry procedures offered here at Dr. Anderson’s office.
From teeth whitening to porcelain veneers, there is a cosmetic dentistry procedure to give anyone a perfect smile.
Teeth Whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures around, with many options for whitening at home instead of the dentist’s office. Someone may choose to have their teeth whitened to remove surface stains caused by things like smoking cigarettes or drinking coffee.
Teeth whitening procedures can be done professionally or at home. If you choose a DIY procedure, Dr. Anderson can provide you with a gel solution for whitening at home with a custom-fit tray for your teeth.
If you have severely damaged, worn out, or crooked teeth, porcelain veneers might be your best option for getting a perfect smile relatively quickly. Porcelain veneers are created uniquely for you and your smile, then bonded to your real teeth.
Lumineers are a kind of porcelain veneers that does not involve any drilling or teeth reshaping. With Lumineers, the porcelain is created as thin as a contact lens and translucent enough to look like real teeth.
Snap On Smile
A Snap On Smile is similar to porcelain veneers, but the results are not permanent. With a Snap On Smile, you will be given an acrylic smile that snaps on to cover your natural teeth. The Snap On Smile can then be removed whenever you want.
Bonding can eliminate unwanted gaps or repair chips in your teeth. Bonding uses a composite resin, which is the color of tooth enamel, so repairs blend seamlessly into your natural teeth.
If you have a cracked, damaged, or missing tooth that needs to be protected or replaced, a cosmetic dentist can provide you with a dental implant. There are multiple kinds of dental implants that may fit your situation, including dental crowns and dentures.
Dental crowns are best for when a damaged or cracked tooth needs to be protected or preserved. A dental crown will cover your entire damaged tooth to maintain it.
Dentures are used when an entire tooth needs to be replaced. Your cosmetic dentist will construct dentures specific to your needs that work just as well as your normal teeth.
