A patient undergoing a dental checkupPatients can put their trust in Dr. John Goodman, who proudly serves the greater Kansas City area. He offers advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures as well as state-of-the-art technology that aids in the dental care process.

There are plenty of dental procedures out there for patients with various needs, but we want to use this blog post to focus on the most popular dental treatments available.

Teeth Whitening

Many people experience stains on their teeth or discoloration of their smile. This is particularly common with older patients given the nature of age-related dental staining. In order to make your smile look its brightest and whitest, many patients turn to teeth whitening. Advanced teeth whitening treatments can leave your smile looking several shades lighter in just one visit to the dentist.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments available. By using porcelain veneers (which are thin shells of dental ceramic), a dentist is able to address the following aesthetic dental problems:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Major dental stains
  • Tooth gaps
  • Uneven teeth
  • Cosmetic malocclusion

Using just porcelain veneers, a full smile makeover can be achieved, and a patient will be able to smile with absolute confidence again.

Dental Bonding

Also known as tooth bonding, dental bonding is a process in which a tooth-colored resin is painted onto a patient's teeth to mask chips, cracks, and stains. Dental bonding can also be used to address minor tooth decay and spacing/symmetry issues. This tooth-colored resin blends in seamlessly with the natural tooth structure, allowing patients to smile with absolute confidence following a treatment session.


Dentures are an ideal treatment option for people who have experienced significant tooth loss, so much so that they are missing most or all of their teeth along a dental arch. A denture will restore the appearance of a patient's smile and also his or her ability to bite and chew. If a full or partial denture is not an ideal treatment for a patient, the use of a dental bridge may be most ideal.

Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover is a combination of multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures that improve the overall look of a patient's smile. These treatments target the teeth and gums, enhancing general dental health while enhancing aesthetics in the process. Smile makeovers can give you the smile of your dreams.

Dr. Goodman made me feel very comfortable but also finally gave me hope for having that "beautiful smile" that we (with not so good teeth) always wish for.
