One of the top reasons why people go to the dentist is to seek help for their cosmetic concerns. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with ateeth whitening perfectly aligned bright, white smile. Find out more about the various types of cosmetic treatments available to you before your upcoming visit to Wichita Dental Group, serving the Wichita, KS area with modern, top quality treatments.

Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening or teeth bleaching is a simple procedure that can be performed in a dentist’s office or at home. Staining on teeth can be caused by certain habits (ie. smoking), aging, drinks, foods, and medications. Before starting any whitening treatments, make sure your dentist has ensured you are free of plaque, tartar, and other debris. While there are home bleaching kits to help with brightening up your smile, only dental-grade whitening bleach can remove stubborn stains from deeper layers of your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers
Everything from tiny gaps between the teeth to broken and chipped enamel can be repaired with veneers, one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. That is because veneers are designed to hide aesthetic problems giving your smile a renewed look. Crowns also help improve the appearance of individual teeth. 

Dentures and Bridges
For some patients who are interested in cosmetic dentistry, dentures and bridges are a viable solution for tooth loss. A complete denture is designed to cover the gum line when a patient has an entire row of missing teeth. A partial unit or bridge uses your other teeth as anchors to fill in smile gaps. Dr. Lewis can create a custom device for you in a matter of weeks.

Dental Implants
Although dentures are the right choice for some patients who have missing teeth, others may be candidates for a more enduring tooth replacement solution: dental implants. They are screw-shaped devices that are inserted into the gumline to provide support for a porcelain crown instead of just covering the outer part of the gumline.
