What Makes a Smile

Personal taste varies, but in general, you know a great smile when you see it, and so do those around you. In fact, the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that your smile is your best personal asset and heavily affects how people treat you in social settings.

So, you want your smile to reflect your personality, but stained enamel, a gap between the two front teeth, and other defects impact your image and self-confidence. Here's where cosmetic dentistry in Dayton comes in.

Dr. James Shepler and Dr. Jamie Shepler ask their patients to come to North Main Dental for a personal consultation. This friendly discussion is then used to its best advantage, as you will discuss all the ways you would like your smile to change, allowing your dentist to arrive at realistic ways to achieve those goals. Your consultation will also include a complete oral examination and X-rays.

 

Offered Treatments

Zoom! Teeth Whitening: Effectively bleaching a variety of dental stains, Zoom! chairside whitening is one of today's most popular cosmetic dentistry services. Accomplished in just one hour, this safe whitening process lifts organic matter from tooth enamel, leaving it bright and shiny. The results are amazing!

Composite Resin Bonding: Dr. Shepler uses a tooth-colored mixture of glass particles and acrylic to reshape and strengthen chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth. The material is layered and hardened with a special light, creating a bond which lasts.

Porcelain Veneers: These shells of dental porcelain camouflage the front of teeth which have more extensive cosmetic problems such as large chips or stains that don't respond to whitening. Veneers are permanent, strong and realistic, blending in well with the rest of your smile.

White Fillings: These restorations rebuild decayed teeth with seamless, tooth-colored composite resin. Unlike metal fillings, they bond right to existing tooth structure and actually flex every time you bite and chew.

Invisalign Clear Aligners: This customized orthodontic system improves smile alignment for healthier, straighter teeth in half the time of conventional braces. Great for older teens and adults just like you! Invisalign appliances are completely unnoticeable, removable, and easy to maintain.

Dental Bonding Has a sports injury or accident left you with teeth that are chipped or cracked? Whether your chipped or cracked teeth are putting your oral health at risk or they are simply unsightly and embarrassing, visiting a dentist at North Main Dental Inc. in Dayton for cosmetic dentistry is an excellent way to restore your beautiful smile once again.

One procedure your dentist may recommend is dental bonding. Dental bonding is a fairly common cosmetic dentistry procedure that Dayton dentists perform on a routine basis. The procedure involves applying a piece of tooth-colored resin material to a damaged tooth in order to fill in the missing space, stabilize the tooth and improve the tooth's appearance.

Why Would Someone Need a Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding can be used for a number of various purposes. For example, a dental bonding can restore decayed, cracked or chipped teeth. It can be used to fill gaps in between the teeth, to lengthen teeth or to change the shape of a tooth. A bonding can be used to protect a tooth in case of a cavity or to protect a tooth root in the event of gum recession.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bonding?

Of all of the restorative cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at North Main Dental Inc. in Dayton, dental bonding is one of the cheapest. It is also fairly quick and easy, as it can be done right in office. It doesn't require much tooth removal, and it may not even require anesthesia. Unfortunately, however, dental bonding is not as stain resistant or as durable as a crown or veneer.

If you are embarrassed about your misshapen smile, make today the day you do something about it. Call North Main Dental Inc. in Dayton to find out if dental bonding is the appropriate cosmetic dentistry procedure for you.
