How can I know if this type of dental treatment is right for me?

Good Candidates for Cosmetic Dentistry

Our practice in Kansas City may recommend this type of dentistry if:

You Are in Good Oral Health

Tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health conditions should be treated before any cosmetic procedure. If root canals, crowns, or other restorative treatments are necessary, they must be completed first.

You Want an Improved Smile

We want every patient to feel confident in their smile and be proud to show it off to the world! If minor imperfections stop you from smiling as wide as you wish you could, our team is here to give you the treatment that gets you looking your best.

You Have Realistic Expectations

Once your dental goals are determined, our professionals will work closely with you to deliver results you’re over the moon about. From before and after photos to a detailed breakdown of your treatment plan, we make sure you know what to expect every step of the way.

What are some of the most common dental procedures used to enhance the smile?

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

To help you achieve the best possible results, Dr. Goodman uses photography, other cases featured on our website, and a diagnostic wax-up of the teeth to help patients visualize their final smile. We also rely on great communication and careful listening so we can create a treatment plan that meets the patient's goals, lifestyle, and budget.

There are several treatment options available, depending on the needs of the individual. Here are some of the most commonly performed dentistry procedures at our Kansas City practice.

Porcelain Veneers

If you want to conceal cracks, chips, or stains, dental veneers may be the solution. They can also be a great way to improve the appearance of misshaped, gapped, or slightly misaligned teeth. In addition to traditional veneers, we also offer same-day veneers at our dental office. Porcelain veneers cost $1,650 per tooth.

Dental Bonding

Like veneers, bonding can correct a wide range of cosmetic dental issues. However, instead of using dental porcelain, Dr. Goodman will use a tooth-colored, composite resin. Bonding does not require any alteration of your teeth, and the results typically last about five years.

Snap-On Smile

Snap-On Smile® can instantly transform your smile. This custom-crafted device will be designed to look natural and maintain your normal bite alignment. Simply place it over your teeth when you want to wear it, and easily remove it whenever you choose.

Teeth Whitening

We offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to help patients achieve brighter, more beautiful smiles. During an in-office Philips Zoom!® treatment, you will experience immediate results in just 90 minutes. If you choose take-home treatment, we have two different options. We offer the GLO Science Pro Whitening and Opalescence home whitening kit. At the end of treatment, you can expect dazzling results that highlight all the best features of your smile.

Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is a customized procedure that combines multiple cosmetic treatments to completely transform your smile. Our dentist will carefully plan your makeover to meet your dental goals. Your input is essential, and we will ask you to describe the smile you wish to achieve in great detail.

We offer clear aligners much like Invisalign® to address orthodontic problems such as overcrowded, overlapped, jutted, twisted, or gapped teeth. Clear aligners like Invisalign can also address bite issues such as underbite and overbite.

Gum Contouring

If you have a gummy smile or uneven gum line, Dr. Goodman can perform the laser gum contouring procedure to eliminate excess tissue and create a more attractive frame for your teeth.

A closer look at porcelain veneers...

Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain shells that fit over the front of your tooth to conceal cosmetic imperfections such as chips, cracks, minor misalignment, and discoloration. Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel so the veneer blends seamlessly with your other teeth for beautiful and natural-looking results.

Dr. Goodman and his staff were honestly incredible. I’ve never been to a dentist that’s taken his time to talk me through recommendations, and had the best interest of the client in mind. I would absolutely recommend him! Probably the best dental experience I’ve ever had.
