Time To Improve Your Appearance? Evaluate Your Smile. If You Want To Upgrade Your Image, Invest In Your Smile

Using cosmetic dental work, we are able to help your smile light up a room whenever you enter. By way of various methods, we’ll create that attractive smile of which you’ve been fantasizing.

Natural-looking solutions such as state-of-the-art metal-free crowns, veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays appear, feel and function like your very own teeth. And, did you know, cosmetic dentistry could very well remove creases and lines near your cheeks, lips and the rest of your face… without cosmetic surgery?

Dr. Busch and Dr. VanYperen’s knowledge and experience in aesthetic and rejuvenating dental care is well recognized in the North Kansas City area.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Once we are in sync with your concept of your perfect smile, we analyze the overall shape of your face, the architecture of your nose and cheekbones, and the character of your eyes. However, it is the shape and contour of your lips that is the highest priority. Our cosmetic team will also take note of a number of other factors such as the balance of your eyes and nose in relation to your other facial measurements.

Our cosmetic smile team can restore your smile to make you appear more youthful, make your smile brighter and bigger, reduce lines and wrinkles around your mouth, quickly make crooked teeth straight, and, finally, take your sex appeal to the next level.

Don’t forget, though, Dr. Busch and Dr. VanYperen and the smile team aren’t just thinking about making your smile beautiful. We believe that 90% of a beautiful smile happens when we make your smile healthy, well built, and in balanced occlusion so that you can enjoy good health, good food and a good laugh now and then.

The Social Science Behind Cosmetic Dentistry

Surprising Research Results:

When participants in a 2008 independent survey had been questioned, “Precisely what would you most want to improve about your own smile?” The most typical answer was: “Brighter & Whiter Teeth”.

When questioned, “What sorts of things do you think make a smile unattractive?” The most typical responses were:

  • Discolored, Yellow, or Stained Teeth
  • Missing Teeth
  • Teeth That are Not Straight
  • Rotting Teeth & Cavities
  • Gaps & Spaces in Teeth
  • Unbrushed Teeth

Practically all Americans (98.7%) think a smile is a vital social asset. 97% of adults think an attractive smile really makes a person more appealing to those of the opposite sex. Three-quarters (76%) of adults truly feel an unappealing smile can easily damage a person’s odds for job success. For better or worse, appearances are critical these days.

According to further studies by poll takers in and around North Kansas City, many people take around three seconds evaluating your appearance before they start to create a list of perceptions about your:

  • academic level
  • job competence
  • success
  • personality
  • society standing
  • dependability
  • personal mores

As expected, your smile is likely your most powerful attribute.

We offer a wide choice of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures to change your smile, including porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges and onlays, implant-supported dentures and/or partials, natural-colored fillings using bonded composite, gum sculpturing, and smile bleaching.
