How Cosmetic Dentistry is changing smiles in Cincinnati

A recent study by the American Association of Orthodontists reveals that one third of Americans are unhappy with their smiles. Most people are aware that their smile is the first thing others notice about them, and that it influences their appearance enough to affect acceptance in school, business, and social settings. The doctors at West Chester Dental Group employ a range of cosmetic dentistry services to help patients in Cincinnati and surrounding areas love their smiles again.

Dissatisfaction with the appearance of your smile usually stems from four general aesthetic concerns. Let’s look at how West Chester Dental Group can help.

Color. Smiles get dingy. Dark colored and acidic foods and beverages stain tooth enamel, as do lifestyle habits like tobacco and ineffective home care. Professional teeth whitening is one of the fastest, most convenient and most economical ways to bring back the brilliance. We offer at-home and in-office options.

Over time, tooth enamel naturally thins, allowing the yellowing dentin layer underneath to show through. Heredity, medications (like tetracycline), and old dental work can tarnish your smile. For deep discoloration that doesn’t respond to whitening, our dentists can restore youthful coloration with luminous porcelain veneers.

Shape. The human eye loves uniformity, especially in the profile of teeth. However, sometimes teeth have unusual contours, or they become worn down or damaged. We use composite resin bonding materials that blend with natural tooth color to enhance the size and shape of teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great choice to disguise imperfections in shape, as well as chips, cracks, and flaws in enamel. Porcelain crowns beautify and protect teeth with areas of damage or large fillings. We also perform enamel recontouring to improve the shape.

Alignment. In a perfect world we would all have straight, even teeth. In reality, teeth may be crowded or crooked; they may overlap or have spaces between them. We help patients look terrific while they straighten with Invisalign clear braces, and we address minor misalignment “instantly” with porcelain veneers.

Gaps. Spaces from teeth that are congenitally missing or lost due to trauma or extraction spoil the symmetry of your smile. They also present oral health hazards. We skillfully close those gaps with porcelain fixed bridges and dental implants.

Despite the many modern techniques at our disposal to enhance your teeth, our dentists and staff believe that the true beauty of your smile radiates from a healthy mouth. We help patients get started on the path to oral wellness with home care education and regular examinations. Call us today at 513-942-8181 to experience the West Chester Dental Group difference.
