Restoritive & Cosmetic

Redesign Your Smile

We can replace old silver fillings with natural looking tooth-colored ones, and we have a number of methods available to whiten teeth. We can also redesign your smile to create one that is harmonious and in balance with the rest of your facial features.

Veneers & Laminates

From Average to Outstanding in Just a Few Steps

Many people desire a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile, but have chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or even slightly crooked front teeth. Often, porcelain Ohio veneers or laminates can provide these people with a completely new-looking smile in just a few simple appointments. If this sounds like you, we will be glad to help evaluate your specific situation, listen to the exact changes you have in mind, and help you visualize your end results. This may involve a diagnostic 'wax up', reviewing photos of similar case outcomes, or using a computer enhancement program to provide you with several options prior to performing the actual procedure.

Fortunately, most Cincinnati veneers can be applied in two simple appointments. Afterwards, you'll just need to clean and floss your new smile daily, visit us regularly for professional care and maintenance of your Ohio veneers, and consider wearing a night-guard to prevent any accidental gritting or grinding pressure to your Ohio veneer while you sleep.

Tooth Whitening

Bringing Out Your Very Best Smile

If you'd like to smile more confidently, knowing your teeth are their whitest and brightest, you might want to consider dentist-supervised Ohio tooth whitening. Cincinnati tooth whitening is a safe, effective, and lasting way to lighten most people's smiles, available in a wide variety of methods and concentrations for various kinds of teeth. Simply talk with us about the criteria for best results and how whitening could impact your particular situation.

Removing Stains with Boost Tooth Whitening

Ohio tooth whitening treatments are most successful in removing yellow, brown, or orange tinges resulting from age, coffee, tea, or smoking. However, dark gray tones from fluorosis, smoking or tetracycline use, often will not whiten as dramatically; artificial materials such as silicants or porcelains do not whiten at all. Finally, sensitive teeth, teeth with periodontal disease, and teeth with worn enamel typically do not respond well to whitening.

Supervised at-home tooth whitening methods produce results via daily sessions over one or more weeks of wearing a customized gel-filled tray appliance, and may result in about a 4 to 6 shade improvement as seen on the dentist's shade scale. Afterwards, you can best preserve your new, brighter smile by limiting habits such as smoking, drinking coffee, and drinking tea.

Onlays

Porcelain onlays and crowns can provide strength to back teeth that have chips, cracks, or large fillings. Onlays are more conservative and aesthetic, because more tooth structure can be preserved. With porcelain, metal margins are not present.

Fixed Bridges

A Stable Solution that Renews Your Smile

If you’ve lost teeth due to accident, injury, or gum disease, we can create a permanent 'bridge' appliance to replace the missing teeth. Not only does a bridge fill the missing space, thereby preventing repositioning of remaining teeth, but it also corrects an altered bite, improves chewing ability and speech articulation, and supports facial structures to preserve your appearance.

How a Cosmetic Dentistry Can Help

So what's a fixed bridge actually like? Well, the restoration is permanently joined onto the neighboring 'abutment' teeth on either side of the toothless area and consists of three basic units: the false tooth or teeth (called a pontic) and two abutment teeth crowns. The most appropriate style depends on the strength and health of those neighboring teeth, as well as the location of the toothless span in relation to the rest of your dentition. If healthy adjacent 'anchor' teeth aren't available, a surgically implanted metal post or dental 'implant' may be an alternate choice. And finally, for a large span of missing teeth, a removable partial denture or implant-supported prosthesis may be our recommendation.
