Spring and summer are great times to hold weddings and a lot of people do – which means you may be traveling to multiple weddings to see loved ones tie the knot in the coming months. If you want to ensure your smile looks great in pictures that will mark such a special occasion, call Dental Care Center of South Kansas City at 816-399-5539 to learn about the various options we provide for a smile makeover.
Because every patient has unique imperfections when it comes to their grin, we offer a large variety of cosmetic dentistry options for you to pick and choose from to design your own comprehensive makeover. With our help you may just be able to:
- Feel ultra confident when you see friends and loved ones that you haven’t in quite some time
- Get a gorgeous grin that will go with any attire at the various weddings you attend, whether you’re the groom or bride-to-be, part of the wedding party, or just a guest
- Look back at pictures of the special day and know that your smile looked great
- Enjoy compliments from friends, loved ones, and maybe even some new acquaintances
Depending on whether your insurance considers a treatment “necessary,” there’s a very good chance that your policy will not cover cosmetic services. But we want to do all we can to allow you to achieve the smile you want so we accept a variety of payment options. You can even use third-party financing from companies like CareCredit that frequently offer interest-free options.
It can be difficult to find the time to visit the dentist with how hectic everyone’s lives are these days. To make scheduling visits a little easier for you, we offer some morning and evening hours. Aside from closing a little early at 4:00 p.m. on Fridays, we keep the nine-to-five schedule you likely expect and also:
- Open early at 8:00 a.m. Mondays through Wednesdays
- Offer super early visits starting at 7:00 a.m. on Thursdays
- Stay late until 6:00 p.m. on Mondays and until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Give Your Grin The Star Treatment With A Smile Makeover
If you still have all of your adult teeth, including your wisdom teeth, you have 32 sites where a smile flaw could be. And that doesn’t even include your gums! We know that even one imperfection can make you feel self-conscious about smiling openly, and that it only makes it worse if you have multiple flaws to fixate on.
We want to help all of our patients feel good about the way their smile looks. Laughing, grinning, and other instances where your teeth become visible are typically very happy occasions, and we don’t want your worries about a less-than-perfect set of teeth to ruin those beautiful moments.
To help you determine which cosmetic options are best for your particular case, we will be happy to:
- Listen very carefully and intently to your particular concerns
- Help you determine what your goals are for your smile
- Answer any questions that you have about any service you are interested in
- Provide recommendations that we think will help you turn your dream smile into a reality
To learn some basics about the various ways we can cosmetically improve your smile, read on below. If your teeth are not healthy enough for cosmetic treatments, we’ll do our best to improve your oral health and then get to work making your smile gorgeous.
Cover Up Many Flaws With Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin tooth-colored shells that we can bond onto your teeth to give them a beautiful and consistent look. Some patients even get veneers on all of their teeth that show while smiling for a cohesive, consistent look. They can be used to conceal many issues, including:
- Minor cracks
- Stubborn stains and discoloration
- Teeth that look slightly crooked
- Small gaps between teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
- Teeth that are worn-down
Hide Multiple Smile Issues With Tooth Bonding
Like dental veneers, tooth bonding is a very multi-use cosmetic option. It can be used to cover up many of the same problems as veneers, but is much more affordable. We use a special material that is tooth-colored and color-matched to your smile so it will blend in and be impossible to notice.
Brighten Up Your Chompers With Teeth Whitening
If you’re self-conscious about the shade of your teeth and want to do something about it, we offer multiple professional teeth whitening options. You can get a fast treatment in-office or choose to lighten the shade of your teeth on your own schedule using a take-home treatment kit.
Regardless of which you choose, our whitening options will be more effective and safer for you than store-bought options. You’ll be smiling wide and proud in no time!
Give Teeth The Ideal Length With Teeth Contouring Or Crown Lengthening
Whether you’ve dealt with a dental damage issue (like worn-down teeth) or your teeth are just naturally a length that you find less than perfect, we can make them the size you want with a teeth contouring or crown lengthening treatment.
If you decide to get these treatments, we’ll either remove a small amount of enamel from the tips of your teeth or use a state-of-the-art dental laser to remove a little bit of gum tissue to make your teeth appear longer.
Get A Great Balance Of White Teeth & Pink Gums With Gum Treatments
If you worry that you have too much gum tissue, resulting in a “gummy smile,” we can provide a gum reshaping treatment. Your gumline will be even and have just the right amount of pink in your grin in no time!
Or perhaps you have the opposite problem and your gumline has pulled back from your teeth, making them look too long. In this case, we can give you a gum recession treatment.
No matter the particular concern you have about your smile, we can help you feel better about it.
