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,
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.

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
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.
