Discover some of the dazzling benefits of our whitening treatment.

Most people, at some point, will deal with discolored or stained teeth. Everything from coffee and red wine to berries and tomato sauce can cause discolorations over time. If you notice that your teeth look a bit dull and dingy these days, our Midtown Wichita, KS, cosmetic dentist Dr. John Lewis can provide a professional whitening treatment to improve your smile. Here are the benefits you can expect when you turn to us for bleaching,

Faster Results

If you have an important occasion or event coming up and you want your pearly whites to be, well, whiter than the professional whitening treatment we offer our Midtown Wichita, KS, patients are going to provide far faster results in a shorter span of time than at-home whitening.

A professional whitening gel is far more powerful, containing a very highly concentrated percentage of hydrogen peroxide. This means that the gel doesn’t have to remain on teeth nearly as long as at-home whitening to get the results you want. With professional whitening, you’ll get a whiter smile in just a fraction of the time.

Safe, Effective Treatment

Whitening your teeth yourself offers no guarantees. Some patients may even notice tooth sensitivity with at-home whitening systems. That’s because these treatment options aren’t tailored to your smile needs. That’s where our Midtown Wichita, KS, dental team comes in.

Our whitening is tailored completely to you. So, if you tell us that you are prone to tooth sensitivity, we’ll take that into account and may even recommend fluoride treatment before whitening to minimize sensitivity. This is something that over-the-counter whitening just can’t offer.

Amazing Results Without the Work

Another reason to turn to our dental team for whitening is that all you have to do is kick back and let our team of professionals get to work to help you get a more radiant smile. Whitening treatment only takes about one hour, and most people see visible results in just one session. This is significantly easier than having to fill trays with whitening gel (and then having to clean them thoroughly after each application) and then sit with the trays for up to 30 minutes each night or fight with whitening strips.

If you are interested in getting teeth whitening treatment from our Midtown Wichita, KS, team of dental professionals then call Wichita Dental Group at (316) 265-0849 to schedule a no-risk consultation.

Find out how dental veneers could transform your smile and appearance.

Do you find yourself hiding your smile in photos? Do special events and business meetings have you self-conscious because your smile is discolored, misshapen, or crooked? If so, then you may be wondering how our Wichita, KS, cosmetic dentist Dr. John Lewis can help. Porcelain veneers have become a popular way to enhance and completely makeover your appearance. Here are some facts about veneers.

They fix most cosmetic dental issues

These thin porcelain shells can really do so much to alter and improve a person’s smile. Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile and can fix most issues that our patients here in Wichita, KS, are concerned about. Since veneers are designed to cover the entire front surface of your teeth, they can correct these common imperfections,

  • Excessively short or stubby teeth (veneers can lengthen them)

  • Chips and cracks

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Malformed or oddly shaped teeth

  • Severely discolored teeth

  • Crowding or slightly crooked smiles

  • Gummy smiles

  • Pitted enamel or other texture issues

They can reduce tooth sensitivity

There are many reasons people deal with tooth sensitivity but one of the most common reasons is worn-down or thin enamel. This is common in those who grind their teeth. If you develop tooth sensitivity, which causes lingering discomfort in the teeth after being exposed to hot or cold temperatures, know that porcelain veneers may be able to reduce or even get rid of your sensitivity. If you’re looking to reduce sensitivity with veneers, talk to your dentist first.

They can give your teeth an extra strengthening boost

Veneers are incredibly resilient because they are made from high-quality porcelain. This means that by simply applying this thin layer of porcelain to the front of your teeth we can actually help reinforce and strengthen your teeth. While porcelain veneers should not be used as a restorative treatment when teeth aren’t structurally sound, they can help to provide additional support for your healthy natural smile.

They are customized to you

Dental veneers are made to fit your needs and your smile. After all, everyone has differently sized and shaped teeth and so you need a dentist who will take all these factors into account, along with the results you want, to craft porcelain veneers that give you the smile you’ve always wanted to have.

Are you interested in getting porcelain veneers here in Wichita, KS? If so, our dental team would be happy to sit down with you to discuss your smile needs and goals. Call Wichita Dental Group today at (316) 265-0849 to schedule a no-risk consultation.

Which cosmetic dental treatment will give you the ideal smile?

There are so many cosmetic options available to patients these days that it can be difficult to figure out which one will give you the results you want. Our Wichita, KS, dentist Dr. John Lewis and his cosmetic dentistry team have worked with patients dealing with a wide range of imperfections to help them achieve smiles they can feel truly confident in. By simply answering these questions, we can help you figure out which cosmetic dentistry option is best suited to your needs,

Do you have yellowing or stained teeth?

Most people start to notice their smile getting dull over the years. Everything from the foods we eat to smoking cigarettes to older age can alter the color of our teeth. Luckily, Dr. Lewis and his team can get your smile several shades whiter, often in just one hour with a chairside whitening treatment. If you’re looking to get a whiter smile for an important event that’s coming up, or simply to feel more confident, our cosmetic dental team can help.

Do you have chipped or misshapen teeth?

We offer a variety of ways to correct chipped, cracked, and oddly shaped teeth. The treatment we recommend will depend on the severity of these flaws. Small chips and cracks can be covered with dental bonding, which uses the same tooth-colored resin that fills teeth after cavities. Dental veneers can also be bonded to the front of your teeth to alter the shape, size, and appearance of your smile. If you’re looking to make widespread changes to your teeth, then dental veneers may be a better option.

Are your teeth crooked or misaligned?

Most people don’t have a perfectly straight smile, but if your crooked teeth are making you feel self-conscious, we offer everything from dental veneers to orthodontic treatment options such as Invisalign, which can help everyone from older teens to adults get the smiles they want.

What are your goals for cosmetic dentistry?

For our Wichita, KS, dental team to understand what you’re hoping to achieve through cosmetic dentistry, you need to have a clear-cut idea first. Do you want a whiter smile? Do you hate that gap between your front teeth? Do you wish your smile was straighter? Write down what’s necessary for you to have your dream smile, then bring it with you to our consultation.

Tags: Preventive Care  

When you're proactive about your oral health, you'll enjoy many benefits, including a beautiful smile for life. At Wichita Dental Group in Wichita KS, our family dentistry team, headed by Dr. John Lewis, provides the in-office care and counsel you need to ward off damage and high-cost procedures.

Strong teeth and pink, intact gums, according to your Wichita, KS Family Dentistry team

They're the basis of a healthy smile. To keep teeth and gums functioning and attractive, brush twice a day to remove the plaque which leads to gum disease, cavities, and tooth loss. Use fluoride toothpaste for its enamel-strengthening properties and cavity prevention.

Also, floss daily using strand floss, a water flosser, or inter-proximal brushes. You'll remove the food particles your toothbrush cannot. Include water throughout your daily routine to wash teeth and gums and increase saliva--important for its antibacterial qualities.

Next, eat well. As Americans, we all know the good from the bad food choices. Limit sugar, carbs, and acidic foods. Consume several servings of fruits and vegetables daily.

Lastly, if you smoke, think seriously about stopping. Tobacco causes bad breath, gum disease, and oral cancer. The Oral Cancer Foundation says that when you quit the habit, your chances of developing this awful malignancy drop by 50 percent.

What does preventive care involve? Dr. John Lewis provides biannual appointments for a cleaning and exam. Professional care offers many benefits to patients of all ages, including:

  • A check for dental decay and gum disease
  • Assessment of dental bite, jaw joint function, signs of wear and condition of crowns, fillings, veneers, and other existing dental work
  • A fast and easy inspection for oral cancer (lumps, sores, areas of discoloration)
  • X-ray imaging according to a set schedule

Dr. John Lewis will share his exam findings with you, show you ways to improve oral hygiene and tell you what, if any, restorative services you need. Also, he may advise you on cosmetic changes which would improve your smile appearance and self-confidence too.

Other preventive services

Wichita Dental Group offers customized mouth guards to protect you, or your youngster, during sports. There are also sealants, which coat back teeth with a thin layer of plastic that is impervious to the bacteria and acids which cause tooth decay. Sealants are great for both kids and adults.

Why treat it when you can prevent it?

At Wichita Dental Group, Dr. John Lewis and his staff work with their patients to stop oral health problems before they gain a foothold. So, why not call your family dentist at his Wichita KS office to arrange your routine cleaning and check-up? Call us at (316) 265-0849.
