Why you should choose professional teeth whitening from your dentists in Dayton, OH, to give yourself a bright smile

You hear a lot about toothpaste that promises to whiten and brighten your smile, but do they really work? The truth is, they can work if all you want is limited whitening that doesn’t last very long. There is a much more effective, longer-lasting solution to a brilliant smile. It’s called professional teeth whitening.

Drs. James and Jamie Shepler at North Main Dental in Dayton, OH, provide a wide range of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including professional teeth whitening.

Let’s look at a quick comparison between whitening toothpaste and professional teeth whitening. Consider that professional teeth whitening is:

Effective, because you can whiten your smile up to 8 shades; whitening toothpaste doesn’t promise amazing results.

Long-lasting, because the results you achieve from professional teeth whitening can last up to 5 years; whitening toothpaste typically lasts only a few weeks.

Quick, because with ZOOM whitening performed in the office, you can have a brilliant smile in about an hour; whitening toothpaste can take several weeks before you notice a difference.

Safe, because ZOOM whitening has been tested and approved by the American Dental Association; whitening toothpaste may or may not be tested and approved for safety.

Your ZOOM whitening treatment begins with the application of prescription-strength whitening gel to your teeth. You sit comfortably for about an hour, while you are carefully monitored by a dental care professional.

After just one hour-long treatment, you will notice an amazing difference! The quick turnaround time makes ZOOM whitening an excellent choice if you want to look your best for a special event coming up.

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.

Years ago, your smile was bright and white. Now, when you look at it, you see teeth and gums that are healthy, but yellow and dull is the teeth whiteningoverall impression you project. Can you change your smile for the better? At North Main Dental in Dayton, OH, Dr. James Shepler and Dr. James Shepler, III, offer Zoom! Teeth Whitening. Safe, supervised, quick and cost-effective, this popular cosmetic service changes dull, dark smiles to brilliantly beautiful once again.

How did your smile get so dull?

There is a long list of factors which contribute to discolored tooth enamel. Simple age is one of them. As time goes by, our tooth enamel just darkens through wear and tear.

However, other things contribute to stained smiles. They include:

  • Dark beverages and foods such as blueberries, coffee, black tea, colas and sports drinks
  • Smokeless tobacco and cigarettes
  • Acidic foods such as tomato sauce and citrus fruits (they actually soft tooth enamel)
  • Neglected oral hygiene habits (brushing, flossing and in-office care)
  • Prescriptions medications such as some antibiotics, blood pressure medications and antihistamines

What you can do in Dayton

You can limit staining dietary choices, drink more water and keep up with your brushing, flossing and professional cleanings. Some over-the-counter toothpastes and rinses improve stains to an extent. However, teeth whitening at North Main Dental Care enhances tooth color dramatically, and you can count on professional supervision of the entire process so you know the treatment is safe.

A whitening treatment starts with an oral examination in which Dr. Shepler makes sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening. He makes sure you have no decay, gum disease or deteriorating restorations. If all is well, he proceeds with one-hour (or so) Zoom! Whitening procedure.

As you relax in the dental chair, the dentist protects your gums and lips with a rubber dam. This device ensures the bleaching gel does not leak onto sensitive oral tissues.

Then, he swabs on the whitening gel. The active ingredient in the gel is concentrated hydrogen peroxide. As it seeps into your tooth surfaces, the gel literally lifts the staining organic material out of the enamel. This oxidizing action is accelerated by a special light. After about an hour, the gel is removed. Amazingly, your teeth will be a full eight to 10 shades brighter, and the effect with last indefinitely.

Cosmetic dentistry is all about making you feel confident in your smile, whether for the first time or for the first time in forever. The caring Dayton dentists at North Main Dental Inc., James M. Shepler, D.D.S. and James M. Shepler III, D.D.S., want to inform you about some of the more popular cosmetic dentistry procedures that are specifically designed to improve the appearance of your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures:


Zoom! Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common methods dentists use to turn your pout into a smile. Your teeth may have become discolored over the years from the foods you eat, beverages you drink, certain habits such as smoking, or even from aging, teeth whitening is an excellent option to perk up your smile so you can show it off to the world.

Dental implants

Another popular choice for cosmetic dentistry is dental implants. Implants are great for people that are looking for a low-maintenance 
solution to removable dentures, that also lasts a lifetime. Crafted specifically for every individual patient, they fit seamlessly into the patient’s mouth. Additionally, it’s a wise health decision to choose dental implants if you are missing one or more teeth. Placing an implant into the vacated spot in the gums prevents bone loss or deterioration in the jaw and also ensures that the tooth above or below the missing one does not grow farther out of the mouth to compensate for the empty space.

Cosmetic Dentistry


Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for those looking to improve their smile. Your Dayton dentist applies veneers to teeth that are able to safely remain in the mouth, but have seen better days looks-wise. Say you’ve got a gap in your teeth that you don’t love as much as you did when you were a kid, or have maybe you’re frequently stressed and have worn your teeth down by grinding or clenching. Porcelain veneers offer a beautiful, bright, natural-looking new tooth to add to your smile.
