Leawood Cosmetic and Family Dentistry offers several cosmetic and restorative dental procedures, but let’s review the most common used for cosmetic dental transformations.

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that adhere to teeth to alter the shape and color. Porcelain veneers are strong and have the translucency of natural teeth. As described by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, veneers do much than just cover teeth with a coating, cosmetic dentists use veneers to correct stained, chipped, oddly shaped and misaligned teeth.

Crowns are used to cover teeth to restore them to their normal appearance and shape. Porcelain crowns are caps or coverings that are tooth-shaped and when in place will cover the portion of the tooth that is above the gum line. Crowns restore teeth damaged by decay, injury or periodontal disease.

Implants are an option to replace missing teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, illness, congenital absence, smoking or old age. Implants have become a popular and effective alternative to bridges and dentures due to the benefits of being natural looking, comfortable and durable.

Bonding is recommended when you need to fill gaps or alter the color of your teeth. When performed by an expert cosmetic dentist, bonding looks completely natural. The positive impact can last for several years. Bonding can result in drastic improvements when combined with other porcelain restorations and whitening.

Teeth Whitening is the least invasive and quickest way to brighten your smile several shades. The teeth whitening process can be used to eliminate stains or discoloration and brighten smiles. Zoom! or KoR laser whitening use light energy to accelerate the teeth whitening process in the dental office.
