Are you looking to improve the appearance of your front teeth? Dental veneers are widely used to improve the appearance of front teeth and are a much more conservative option than a full dental crown. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of staining, large gaps, large fillings, chipped teeth, or overall shape. Veneers are a thin covering over the front and biting end of the tooth used to restore the beauty of a smile. Over the years Drs. James and Jamie Shepler have helped many patients who opted for veneers and now have the confidence to smile again. If you're interested in veneers, set up your first appointment today with North Main Dental Inc in Dayton, OH.

Dental veneers are made in a lab from long-lasting porcelain materials. The shade can be chosen to any desired color to whiten the appearance of your smile. Dental veneers are usually placed on the anterior, or front teeth, where the chewing forces are not as hard as the back teeth. The process of placing veneers is relatively easy, requiring only two dental appointments. In some cases, only one appointment is needed. It depends on the fabrication process.

The first appointment is to “prep” the teeth and takes an impression to be sent to a lab to fabricate the veneers. Veneers are fairly conservative in the preparation as it requires a small amount of space to be created on the face (front), bottom, and sides of each tooth to allow space for the veneer to be placed and look natural. You will leave the office with temporary veneers for the next week or two while the permanent veneers are being made.

The second appointment is to place the veneers and make minor adjustments if needed. What a difference it makes in the appearance of the teeth! If you’re interested in learning more, give Drs. James and Jamie Shepler a call today! Contact North Main Dental Inc in Dayton, OH, at (937) 275-0076.

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that mimic the look of real tooth enamel. They are bonded to the front of your teeth and can easily hide these gaps to give you a more even smile.

Hide Imperfections

Just about any dental imperfections, from internal discolorations to chips and cracks, can benefit from dental veneers. Hide a wide range of cosmetic flaws in your smile quickly and for the long term. After all, veneers are custom-made to cover your teeth, providing you with a flawless smile.

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.

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.

Some dental problems are easier to address than others. If you have a cavity or severe tooth decay, your dentist will most likely perform veneersa root canal or use a filling if the cavity is not too large. Problem solved. Crooked and misaligned teeth can be fixed with orthodontics, and even a lifelong smoking habit no longer has to mean yellow, severely stained teeth, thanks to the ubiquity of professional teeth whitening treatments.

Sure, no one wants to get a root canal or braces, but they are straightforward solutions to some of the most common dental and oral health problems. However for many people, smaller problems like cracks, chips, discoloration, and misshaped teeth make up the smaller, "quality of life" type of dental problems that can make a person hate their teeth, which in turn can affect their overall levels of confidence and self-esteem as a result.

Get Dental Veneers in Dayton

So what is a person to do when they need to fix a few teeth, but don't need something as extensive as a dental crown or Invisalign? The answer is dental veneers. Made up of a thin and durable layer of porcelain similar to the layer of enamel on a natural tooth, the dentists at North Main Dental in Dayton, OH use veneers to fix a number of cosmetic issues including small chips and cracks, and for minor tooth reshaping and discoloration. Veneers are ideal for the type of surface corrections that can drastically improve a person's smile. They are placed directly over the surface of the tooth and designed to match the color and texture of the enamel for a realistic and natural looking smile.

Veneers are one of the more versatile cosmetic dental treatments available, and offer one solution for several small problems, all in one treatment.

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.
