Comprehensive Dental Care
At Menees Family Dentistry, we know that comprehensive and preventive dental care are key components to your oral health and overall health. Dr. Laura uses state-of-the-art technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent dental conditions before they are even detectable to the naked eye—meaning she can treat the condition before it becomes painful and costly. Maintaining your 6-month exams with your Prairie Village dentist, along with proper at-home care, can put you on the right track to excellent dental health.
Dental Cleanings & Exams
Maintaining your 6-month cleaning and exam with your Prairie Village dentist can help keep your smile healthy and beautiful.
Custom Athletic Mouthguards
Our custom mouthguards protect your smile from trauma and preserve your teeth for years to come. Anyone participating in any sport or athletic training should consider getting a custom-fitted plastic mouthguard. The mouthguard fits snugly on the teeth, adding protection from sports-related injuries to your teeth and gums.
For night-grinders or jaw-clenchers, Dr. Laura can make you a custom-made nightguard to help protect your teeth and jaw while you sleep. Nightguards can even help reduce the number and severity of morning headaches.
Dental sealants can help prevent cavities from forming on the molar teeth. They fill the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth where food particles commonly get caught. Although dental sealants are typically recommended for children, adults can benefit from sealants, too!
Oral Cancer Screenings
Dr. Laura is trained to screen for oral cancer before a patient even has any symptoms. Finding oral cancer in the early stages can make treating the disease more effective.
Our team at Menees Family Dentistry believes that everyone deserves a beautiful and healthy smile. If you feel good about your smile, you exude self-confidence. Dr. Laura provides several cosmetic dental treatments that can enhance your smile and boost your self-esteem.
Invisalign® Clear Braces
If you are dissatisfied with the position of your teeth but don’t want to spend years wearing traditional metal braces, consider Invisalign—the clear alternative to metal braces. Invisalign’s transparent aligners are so subtle that most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them!
Invisalign uses a series of clear, comfortable aligners that are switched out approximately every two weeks to reposition your teeth to their perfect positions. Dr. Laura will come up with a very precise plan for your smile outcome, and based on this plan, aligners will be custom made for each step of your Invisalign treatment. Your aligner trays are comfortable for the sensitive tissues of your gums and cheeks, and you can remove them when eating, brushing, and flossing.
Call to schedule a complimentary Invisalign consultation with Dr. Laura so she can create a custom Invisalign plan for your individual orthodontic needs!
If you cover your mouth when you speak, laugh, and smile because you’re embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth, Dr. Laura can help you! Porcelain veneers are a great solution for chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth. Veneers are also a great alternative to braces for teeth that are widely spaced or overlapped. Let Dr. Laura help you create a smile you are proud to show off with porcelain veneers.
Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings, also called composite fillings, are a great alternative to traditional silver fillings. Because they are tooth-colored, composite fillings look just like your natural teeth, making them unnoticeable to the unaided eye.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening can take years of stains off of your smile. Whitening your teeth is a safe, conservative, and comparatively inexpensive way to brighten your smile.
We offer both in-office whitening and take-home custom whitening. With our in-office whitening, you can get the bright, white smile you've always wanted in just one office visit.
If you would rather whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, Dr. Laura can create custom whitening trays for you. Just add a small amount of our professional-strength whitening gel to your tray and then get back to your busy life. In about 30 minutes, you could be seeing a whiter smile!
Let Dr. Laura help you achieve the smile of your dreams!
If you avoid eating in front of people because you are embarrassed by your teeth or dentures, Dr. Laura can help you restore your smile to its former health. Missing teeth can take the joy out of eating your favorite foods and smiling and laughing with your friends. With state-of-the-art restorative dentistry, we can help you regain confidence and get back to doing all the things you love!
Dental crowns are a functional and long-lasting restorative treatment for teeth that are damaged or severely decayed. Crowns can be used alone or in conjunction with other restorations like fixed dental bridges. Crowns improve more than just the appearance of your smile—they restore damaged teeth and protect them for years.
If you’re only missing one or two teeth and aren’t ready for a full set of dentures, a dental bridge could be the perfect solution. A dental bridge combines the best aspects of crowns and dentures to literally “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth. Bridges are usually very affordable, too!
If you have been living with ill-fitting dentures for many years, you may have started believing that slipping, clicking, and messy adhesives are just a fact of life. Think again! Dr. Laura takes pride in her ability to design and fabricate dentures that are incredibly comfortable and natural-looking. Whether you need a partial denture, a full denture, or a reline of your existing set, we ensure that your dentures are as functional, beautiful, and affordable as possible.
Dental Implant Restorations
If you have had a dental implant placed at a specialist’s office, we can then provide the custom restoration, or dental crown, on top of the artificial tooth root. We design this dental implant restoration to match the look and feel of your other teeth so it will blend in naturally. You can brush and floss this restoration just like normal, and it will last for many years with proper care. You’ll be able to enjoy a fully functioning smile once again!
Kid-Friendly Dental Care
We know that your children need customized dentistry that takes into account their past dental experiences, their unique needs for communication and education, and their present level of dental anxiety. We treat your children with care, making sure they are comfortable with our team and their treatment before starting the exam.
We also want your children to have fun while they are at Menees Family Dentistry. We have plenty of kid-friendly amenities that will have your children excited to come back to visit us!
