Cosmetic dentistry is powerful; we see first-hand how patients walk taller and exude greater confidence following treatment at our office in Overland Park. At Dentistry by Shane Nelson, DDS, we are privileged to facilitate these transformations in smiles and self-confidence. However, as a holistic and biological practitioner, Dr. Nelson takes cosmetic dental services to the next level. Our natural and comprehensive principles support treatments as conservative, safe, precise, gentle, and long-lasting as they are stunning and lifelike in their appearance. Enhanced or rebuilt teeth and tissues completed at our practice are indistinguishable in how they feel, look, and function from natural and healthy tissues.
Take a look at just a few of the ways our unique treatments makeover your smile safely and comfortably:
- Safe, comfortable, and versatile bleaching – The KöR® whitening system is appropriate even for patients with current concerns or a history of teeth sensitivity associated with ingredients designed to lift stains. KöR® is formulated to desensitize teeth and prevent discomfort. Additionally, in some situations this deep bleaching method distinguishes it from other professional treatments by removing stubborn or intrinsic discoloration, for instance, gray-blue stains related to excessive and early tetracycline use.
- Non-toxic, tooth-colored fillings and restorations – As a mercury-free practice, we do not place metal restorations, such as silver-colored amalgam fillings that contain mercury. Our biocompatible “white” fillings and other restorations not only blend in well with the surrounding teeth but are also non-toxic and appropriate for patients with sensitivities and allergies to metals. Notably, we are trained and equipped to remove amalgams that contain mercury safely. As a “mercury-safe” practice, we minimize the risk of exposure to this known toxin during the filling, removal, and replacement process called the SMART technique (Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique).
- A range of tissue-preserving treatments tailored to your one-of-a-kind needs. For instance, teeth recontouring and gum contouring present minimally invasive, low-touch ways to dramatically revamp your smile. In addition, we use ultra-thin porcelain veneers that require minimal alteration of tooth enamel to fix a variety of imperfections, from gaps to chips. The less enamel removed, the better-tolerated procedure, the greater satisfaction patients receive from their veneered appearance, and durability.
As with all treatments at our practice, cosmetic dental processes are also complemented by gentle techniques and technologies. Depending on your needs, we may recommend ozone therapy or laser dentistry with the revolutionary Waterlase iPlus® system. We assure you that there is nothing to fear and that nothing stands between you and your best smile. Contact us today at (913) 297-7800 to schedule your appointment.
