Shiny, white, even teeth are the hallmark of a perfect smile. That's the kind of smile we all want but may need a little help achieving. If age, damage, or lifestyle habits have prevented you from having teeth you're proud to show off, your dentists can offer you a cosmetic dentistry procedure that fits your needs.

At North Main Dental Inc. in Dayton, OH, we offer many cosmetic dentistry options that will boost your smile and your confidence.


Smoking, age, coffee drinking are all things that can cause your teeth to become yellow, gray, or dull. At-home whitening kits, which often come in the form of strips or gels, can help whiten teeth to a certain degree but for dramatic and long-lasting results a professional whitening at our Dayton, OH, office takes whitening to another level. We use stronger hydrogen peroxide than over-the-counter kits contain.


Crooked, unevenly spaced teeth or teeth with surface damage can be renewed with veneers, a quick and effective way to conceal imperfections. Braces, retainers, and other straightening implements are conspicuous and take months or years to achieve results, but veneers, which are bonded to the front of your teeth, offer instant perfection.

Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth due to injury, decay, or age, dental implants may be the best cosmetic dentistry choice for you. Dental implants use small, screw-like posts to serve as a root for an artificial tooth. Permanent, durable, and attractive dental implants give you a complete, healthy-looking smile and improve your ability to bite or chew.


Chipped or cracked teeth can be repaired with dental bonding, which uses a tooth-colored composite to fill in or cover the damage. The composite is tinted and molded to match the rest of your teeth and is then cured under a light until it hardens. Bonding is strong and durable for a fully functional and natural-looking tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry ProceduresToday's cosmetic dentistry procedures are better and more accessible than ever. At North Main Dental in Dayton, Drs. James and Jamie Shepler offer several aesthetic treatments which change drab, damaged teeth into spectacular smiles. Whether you need a small correction or a full smile makeover, this artistic team can rejuvenate your smile.


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.


Come See Us!

Drs. James and Jamie Shepler love seeing their patients smile with health and confidence. If you'd like to enhance your teeth and gums, arrange a consultation at North Main Dental. Come in and share your ideas with us! We know we can translate them into your best smile. Call today: (937) 275-0076.

Give your smile that like cosmetic tweak it needs to really shine.restorative dentistry

Who says that in order to get the perfect smile that you have to keep coming back to the office time and time again just to get the results you want? Who says that you have to go through numbing needles, drills or other more invasive options to get the smile of your dreams? Here at North Main Dental, our Dayton, OH, cosmetic dentists, Drs. James and Jamie Shepler, understand that not everyone has the same cosmetic needs or goals. If you have more minor adjustments to make to your smile then simple dental bonding might be able to help you.

What is dental bonding?

During dental bonding, a material known as composite resin is applied and shaped over minor cosmetic defects such as chips, cracks, discolorations, and even small gaps between teeth. While you might know composite resin as the tooth-colored material used to fill a cavity, in this situation, the resin is used purely for cosmetic purposes.

What are the benefits of dental bonding in Dayton?

There are many benefits to getting dental bonding. First and foremost, getting the smile you want shouldn’t be expensive or take up a lot of your time. Bonding is one of the simplest and least expensive ways to cosmetically improve and enhance your smile.

Bonding can also be performed in one visit and often when you are already here for your routine dental exam and cleaning. Bonding can take anywhere from 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the issue, how many teeth you want to treat and which teeth are being treated.

Furthermore, dental bonding is completely non-invasive, which means that you won’t have to undergo drilling, needles or even numbing gel. We just choose the bonding resin that most closely matches the shade of your tooth and then we apply, shape it and then harden it permanently to the tooth. It’s that simple!

No matter whether you have questions about dental bonding or you want to find out if it’s the right way to fix your minor imperfections, don’t hesitate to call North Main Dental in Dayton, OH. Getting the ideal smile shouldn’t be difficult; dental bonding could help.

Even subtle improvements can have a dramatic impact on your smile. Maybe your teeth are already straight, but regular coffee or red wine drinking has left them looking dull or stained. Anything from minor chips and cracks to broken or even missing teeth can be fixed with cosmetic dentistry. In some cases, such as when teeth are missing, it is not just a matter of how good your smile looks, it is also a matter of oral and general health.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry

There are several options to choose from depending on the problem. The most common cosmetic dental treatments include:

  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Bonding
  • Dental implants

Veneers and bonding can be used to change the size, shape, and color of a damaged or unattractive tooth. Problems like chips and cracks, minor to moderate spacing, stained and discolored, or uneven teeth can be corrected - sometimes in as little as a single appointment - with bonding or veneers.
