leawood cosmetic dentistryDo you want to see improvement in the appearance of your smile? Then you need cosmetic dentistry, treatments designed to address the visible portions of your smile and offer stunning results, sometimes in one visit. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS, dentist talks about our selection of cosmetic treatments, which can be used to offer major smile transformation, sometimes in as little as one to two visits!

Starting Your Cosmetic Treatments

To begin, we want to see you for a consultation. Our team will talk to you about your concerns with the appearance of your teeth and gums, and then we will conduct a detailed examination with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to assess the cause and severity of these imperfections. The images and measurements enable us to plan treatment with precision, choosing one or several procedures to help correct your concerns. Every smile is unique, which is why we offer a personalized approach to care. Along with the cosmetic treatments we discuss in today’s blog, if you need restorative dentistry, we can provide lifelike fillings, crowns, and bridges that blend with your smile, and discuss dental implants to address tooth loss, which look and function like natural teeth. Even with restorative and prosthetic dentistry, we offer a cosmetic approach.

At-Home and In-Office Teeth Whitening

One of the more common treatments people seek involves removing teeth stains. Discoloration could be the result of multiple factors, such as the foods and drinks we consume, poor oral hygiene habits, or even the use of tobacco products. But we can offer professional whitening to remove the stains and offer results more dramatic than store bought options. If you need results quickly, we can offer in-office treatment to remove stains in as little as one to two hours. We also have take-home trays and gel to brighten teeth by up to eight shades in about a week, tackling more severe staining and limiting tooth sensitivity in the process. We can then discuss changes to your routine to keep your teeth bright!

Porcelain Veneers

If you have multiple concerns, we can offer a smile makeover with porcelain veneers. These very thin shells of porcelain are crafted to be placed onto the front and sides of the teeth. They instantly change the color and shape, masking discoloration, repairing damage, and reshaping teeth, and even closing spaces and black triangle spots between the teeth. Our team can even correct the appearance of minor misalignment too! Veneers look natural and can stay in place for years to come, so you enjoy lifelike results and a chance to smile with confidence again. The process takes two visits, one to prepare the teeth and gather detailed images, the second to place the completed restoration that transforms the beauty of your smile.


If you have crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth, then do not assume braces are the only way to obtain a straighter smile. You could benefit from Invisalign! We could craft a series of clear and cozy aligners, which fits comfortably and gently shifts your teeth into proper position. The aligners are clear, comfortable, and make minimal impacts on your daily life when compared to braces. They are easy to clean and use, travel with you as needed, and help you obtain results in a shorter time frame, sometimes in as little as one year. You do not have to change your diet, brushing and flossing is much easier, and you can even remove them for special events too.

Tooth Jewelry

Do you like the idea of jewelry on your teeth to give your smile an extra sparkle? Then with Twinkles® Tooth Jewelry, we can provide stunning and gold-encased jewelry safely to the surfaces of your teeth. These can stay in place as long as you like, but can be removed later without causing damage to your tooth enamel. Don’t opt for other options that could harm enamel, talk to our team about professional and safe tooth jewelry.
