We’re Not a “Drill and Fill” Practice
Our goal is to focus on your family’s long-term health with preventive and conservative methods.
Gum (Periodontal) Therapy
Do you have red, swollen, or bleeding gums? It could be a sign of gum disease. Aside from the risk of losing your teeth, gum disease can lead to other health risks, including diabetes, heart disease, birth defects, and so much more. It’s recommended you eat a balanced diet, practice excellent oral hygiene, and visit our family dentists on a regular basis.
At Smile Connections, we want to save your natural teeth. We may pursue options such as scaling and root planing or deep cleanings to heal your gums gently. Ask us about our gum therapy options!
Crowns in a Day
We’re not kidding! It’s possible to get beautiful, durable crowns in one day. With the advancements in technology, Smile Connections has a CEREC machine to craft high-quality and natural-looking crowns – all in one visit!
No longer will you have to come back to our office for multiple appointments and wear temporaries.
Our family dentistry in Wichita, KS thrives on the power of prevention. We always let you know what’s going on with your mouth and educate on what needs to be done to keep your smile for the rest of your life.
Some prevention methods we use are sealants – a thin coating usually painted on your back teeth (those hard-to-reach places) to prevent decay. We also offer fluoride after every hygiene appointment to give your smile that extra defense it needs.
Do you grind your teeth at night? It’s okay – it’s a common problem among many Wichita residents. Grinding your teeth not only deteriorates your enamel, but it can cause future TMJ problems, affecting your overall quality of life.
Dr. Volker and Dr. Meng offer customized night guards, which fit comfortably around your smile while protecting it from the nightly grind.
When a tooth gets decay, a filling is needed to save the tooth. We most often use composite (tooth-colored) fillings – These fillings look the most like natural teeth.
You can smile proudly with your tooth-colored fillings and look like you’ve never had a cavity.
Laughing Gas (Nitrous Oxide)
We offer Nitrous Oxide for anyone who fears dental treatment. Nitrous Oxide is a safe and effective way to help you relax and feel at ease during your entire appointment. In fact, you may lose your fears altogether and begin to love dentistry.
Crowns and Bridges
When a tooth is missing, a bridge can be fitted between two teeth to fill in the gap with a natural-looking tooth. With a severely decayed tooth, a crown is placed to restore its function, beauty, and shape. We also offer CEREC to help craft your tooth in only one appointment!
