Dr. James Shepler and Dr. Jamie Shepler of North Main Dental, Inc provide comprehensive dental care for families in Dayton, OH. Dental bonding is just one of many dental services we offer to keep your smiles healthy and beautiful. Bonding repairs chips in teeth and can keep your smile looking great for years.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a composite resin material that a dentist can sculpt directly onto a tooth to change its shape. It is designed to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. Your Dayton, OH, dentist uses dental bonding to repair chipped teeth and make other cosmetic corrections.

Getting dental bonding

The procedure for getting dental bonding is routine and painless. The tooth is etched with a solution that prepares it for bonding. Then your dentist applies the bonding to fill in the chip and the material is cured with a special light until it hardens. You can come to our office with a chipped tooth and in one appointment leave with a beautiful smile again!

Caring for dental bonding

When you have dental bonding in your mouth, it is prone to staining. You should be careful with certain beverages like coffee, wine, and soda. Enjoy these occasionally and with water so your teeth get rinsed at the same time. Any tobacco use stains your teeth and dental bonding, and your dentist will recommend quitting smoking to prevent oral cancer.

Maintaining a great dental hygiene routine will be important, too. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. With great care, your bonding can last and look great for years.

At North Main Dental, Dr. James Shepler and Dr. Jamie Shepler repair teeth with dental bonding to keep smiles looking beautiful. Contact us for an appointment in Dayton, OH, at (937) 275-0076.

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.

Whitening

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.

Veneers

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.

Bonding

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.

How Invisalign from your dentists in Dayton, OH can give you an outstanding smile, easily and comfortably
 

If you have rotated teeth, chances are you have trouble flossing. If you have poor alignment in your jaws, you may be self-conscious about it. If this sounds like you, it’s time for you to investigate Invisalign, the most discreet orthodontic treatment available.
 

You don’t have to travel to an orthodontist for Invisalign treatment. Dr. James M. Shepler and Dr. Jamie Shepler at North Main Dental in Dayton, OH offer full-service dentistry, including Invisalign, to give you an outstanding smile.
 

Invisalign isn’t like conventional brackets and wires. In fact, Invisalign doesn’t use any metal parts at all. Instead, Invisalign uses smooth, clear plastic appliances, known as aligners. These aligners offer important benefits like these:

  • A beautiful appearance, because the aligners are clear; that makes them almost invisible to people around you.
  • Comfortable teeth straightening, because the aligners are smooth, with no sharp parts to irritate your tissue.
  • Unrivaled convenience, because you can remove the aligners to eat the foods you love, and you can remove them to brush and floss, without using cumbersome tools.
  • Fast results, because Invisalign treatment is completed in an average of 9 to 15 months.
     

Invisalign treatment goes like this:

  1. You receive your first set of aligners, and you wear them for 2 weeks.
  2. You move on to a new set of aligners, which you also wear for 2 weeks.
  3. You keep progressing to a new set of aligners every 2 weeks, as your teeth comfortably move into the proper position.
  4. You will visit your dentist every few weeks to track your progress.
     

Invisalign can correct many major alignment and positioning issues including:

  • Overbite or underbite
  • Crossbite or open bite
  • Rotated, crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Overlapped teeth
     

You and your smile deserve to enjoy the benefits and comfort of Invisalign. To find out more about how Invisalign can help you achieve an outstanding smile, call Dr. James M. Shepler and Dr. Jamie Shepler of North Main Dental in Dayton, OH at (937) 275-0076. Call today!

Teeth whitening is a popular service because it helps patients achieve a bright smile fast. Zoom! teeth whitening is a procedure provided at North Main Dental Inc. that can make enamel up to eight shades whiter in as little as one hour. Whether you want to improve your appearance for a special event or something as simple as a video call, North Main Dental Inc. performs this chair-side treatment right here in our Dayton, OH, office. Call us today to begin your journey to the smile you've always wanted.

What Is Zoom! Teeth Whitening?

For those who desire a more youthful look and confidence boost, Zoom! teeth whitening delivers instant, long-lasting results. You'll relax in our Dayton, OH, dental chair, while one of our dentists place a protective cover around the lips and apply a gel that safeguards the gums. During the process, goggles that block-out UV rays shield the eyes. Then, a combination of concentrated bleach and high-intensity light shines directly at the teeth to dissolve stains and activate the whitening process. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Shepler will give you aftercare instructions to take home. These may include avoiding foods that stain for up to seven days. Touch-ups are required every few months to prevent discoloration, as well as regular brushing and flossing.

If you're dissatisfied with the shade of your enamel, consider Zoom! teeth whitening to transform your smile. During an initial consultation, we can determine if you're a candidate for this procedure after performing an oral examination and discussing any current tooth sensitivity. For more information about Zoom!, teeth whitening, or other services provided by North Main Dental Inc., visit our website.

If you've heard of dental implants, you know they are the most realistic, reliable and bone-loving tooth replacements available. Bonding to your jaw bone, they serve as tooth roots and preserve the surrounding jaw bone. At North Main Dental in Dayton, OH, your dentists, Dr. James Shepler and Dr. Jamie Shepler, recommend these tooth replacements because they look and act just like natural teeth.

Your dental implant surgery and restoration

Depending on your need, Dr. James Shepler, our in-house dental implant expert, inserts a single implant or multiples to serve as the foundations for crowns or full or partial dentures. From preliminary exam, impressions and treatment plan to digitally-guided implant surgery to the final restoration, your restorative procedure is comfortable, safe and reliable. In fact, dental implant procedures succeed up to 98 percent of the time, reports WebMD.

Dental implants are made from biocompatible titanium. That means your jaw bone loves it, adhering to it through osseointegration and creating a stable anchor for a metal post and ceramic dental crown attached at a later date. Or, if you require more extensive tooth replacement, Dr. Shepler may insert multiple implants to carry a full or partial denture.

After your implant procedure

Living with your dental implants resembles life with real teeth. You brush twice a day and floss to keep implant sites clean and healthy. If you smoke, consider quitting because tobacco is the biggest threat to implant retention.

Also, be sure you see your dentist in his Dayton, OH, office for six-month cleanings and exams. Your dentist will check the condition of your implants, surrounding tissues and crowns or dentures. Over time, implant restorations may require replacement due to normal wear and tear. The titanium implants themselves, however, should last you a lifetime, states the Institute for Dental Implant Awareness (IDIA).
