Your smile is the first thing that others notice about you. The appearance of your smile can significantly shape how others view you. There are several factors that go into creating a beautiful, confident smile. OHIOSmiles can help you to achieve your ideal smile with cosmetic dentistry.
Professional teeth whitening is a treatment designed to eliminate deep stains and discoloration from your teeth, restoring their bright white brilliance. There are two ways in which teeth whitening can be done. We can provide in-office whitening, or you can whiten your teeth at home with whitening trays. Our in-office procedure takes only one appointment and about an hour of your time. With whitening trays, you can whiten in the comfort of your own home. Treatment typically takes one to two weeks depending upon the level of your discoloration and your goals.
Composite bonding is a treatment used to correct the appearance of teeth affected by minor flaws, such as small cracks or gaps between your teeth, enhancing the beauty of your smile. Treatment uses composite resin; a substance made up of fine glass, plastic, and other materials. Composite resin is tooth colored, and extremely versatile, allowing us to provide a beautiful restoration for many needs. The procedure is quick, non-invasive, and completely painless.
Minimal Prep Veneers
Veneers are another common treatment used to treat minor flaws affecting the appearance of your teeth. Minimal prep veneers are similar to traditional veneers, but they are thinner. Because they are thinner, less, or even no, tooth enamel needs to be removed to accommodate the restorations. Minimal prep veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, covering over the flaws in your teeth and restoring, or enhancing, the appearance of your smile.
Types of Dental Crowns
These can last longer and are much more comfortable than the older versions. However, the material used for your crowns will depend on your requirements and oral anatomy. At OHIOSmiles, Denise Antalis, DDS and Kayla Warner, DDS use their experience to examine your oral anatomy and provide you suggestions for the best dental crown material for your teeth.
Placing Dental Crowns
A dental crown procedure may be recommended for protecting your weak tooth or restoring a broken tooth. It is also best suited for holding a dental bridge, covering a dental implant, and other cosmetic modifications. The dental crown placement procedure is performed in two visits. However, using CAD technology, you can also get same-day crowns made and installed in a single appointment.
Veneers vs Dental Crowns
If you want to improve your smile, there are a number of dental restoration options to choose from. Dental crowns and veneers are the most popular restoration procedures that can improve the look of your teeth. But the two play different roles. Veneers are used to cover the front of the tooth and its edges. You may need several veneers to give your teeth the desired color.
Gum recontouring is a treatment provided to treat an uneven gum line. Today, the procedure is performed using a laser, which is a tool that uses a concentrated beam of light to cut through tissue. The light provides pinpoint accuracy, greatly reducing tissue trauma and bleeding that is commonly associated with traditional surgery using a scalpel. This treatment allows us to restore a more natural, healthy gumline, providing you with a more beautiful smile and greater confidence.
Tooth contouring is a treatment used to eliminate minor flaws in your teeth, restoring or enhancing their appearance. The procedure is done using a tool that grinds small amounts of your tooth enamel away to quickly and effectively eliminate flaws. The tool also buffs and polishes the teeth, leaving you with a beautiful result.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
A full mouth reconstruction involves the use of several procedures to restore the appearance of your smile as well as your oral health. It is a customizable procedure that allows us to tailor your treatment to your needs. We use a combination of cosmetic, restorative, orthodontic, endodontic, and other treatments to provide you with a beautiful, healthier mouth and smile.
A smile makeover is another treatment that uses a variety of different treatments to restore and enhance the beauty of your smile while also restoring your confidence. This treatment focuses entirely on the appearance of your smile. We can customize your treatment, performing any necessary cosmetic treatments, to provide you with the smile you have always wanted.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that are used to plump the skin, restoring lost volume, eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, and giving you back a more youthful, vibrant appearance. There are several types of dermal fillers, allowing treatment to be customized to your needs.
Botox is an FDA cleared treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. It is an injectable treatment that works to block signals from nerves and to prevent target facial muscles from contracting. This allows your skin to smooth out, helping to reduce lines and wrinkles and give you back a more youthful appearance.
