Let’s Talk About Your Smile

Let’s Talk About Your Smile I’m Eleanor Endres of Endres Gateway Dentistry. My office is located at 9380 Montgomery Rd, Ste 204 in Cincinnati. One of the best things about being a dentist is interacting with my patients. During initial dental consultations, I listen carefully to my patient’s short and long term dental goals.

I enjoy discussing options and developing effective treatment plans tailored specifically to each person. Some of my patients desire a total smile makeover. I explain in detail the treatments available including teeth whitening, dental veneers, orthodontia, crown restoration, and dental implants.

If a patient is nervous about undergoing treatment, we discuss oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation, sometimes called oral sedation dentistry, is a great option for anxious patients. Dental visits do not have to be painful!

After the treatment has been completed, it is very gratifying for me to see my patient’s reaction to their new smile.

I never get tired of creating dramatic smile transformations for the best patients in Ohio!

If you have been considering a smile makeover, let’s talk about your smile. Call Endres Gateway Dentistry at 513-914-4918 to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation.

7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

Cincinnati Cosmetic Dentist

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the Cincinnati area, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. Today in the Endres Gateway Dentistry dental blog, we explain 7 ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process

7) Teeth can be shaped to look longer. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.

If you are in the Montgomery, Blue Ash, or Kenwood area and are in need of dental care or have cosmetic dentistry questions, please give us a call at 513-914-4918.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry

Affordable Cincinnati Cosmetic Dentistry Are you wondering if your Ohio dental insurance covers cosmetic dental procedures? Many dentistry patients assume their dental insurance won’t cover any cosmetic dental procedures. This is probably true for tooth bleaching or first-time dental bonding. Many dental insurance plans cover orthodontia and any treatment needed to repair damage from an injury. Our practice accepts a range of insurance and financing options.

Types of Coverage

  • Dental insurance plan
  • Dental supplemental insurance plans
  • Medical insurance plan
  • Worker’s Compensation plan

Some dental insurance plans cover replacement porcelain veneers in certain circumstances. Check with your carrier for benefit specifics if you need replacement veneers due to deterioration. We can then discuss dental treatment options such as replacement veneers or porcelain crowns. When the work is completed, we may be able to help you submit your dental claim form if your plan requires one.

If you are in need of any kind of dental treatment; from a cleaning to major restorative work, come meet our friendly team, undergo a thorough evaluation and discuss financing options. Even if you do not have dental insurance, let’s talk. Top quality dental treatment is a wise investment and may be more affordable than you think.

Not Happy With Your Gums? Ask About Contouring

Gum Contouring In Cincinnati

Some Cincinnati and Cincinnati dental patients who are interested in a full smile makeover might want to consider gum contouring. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is helpful for people who feel that their gums rest too low or too high on their teeth.

If you feel that your gums cover too much of the surface of your teeth, it may seem that your teeth are too small and out of proportion with your mouth. For Montgomery, Blue Ash, and Kenwood residents who have teeth that appear too long, gum contouring may help with your appearance, but your Cincinnati dentist may also feel that it is necessary to counteract gum recession, a condition that can lead to periodontal disease.

Talk to your Cincinnati area dentist about gum contouring. Many periodontists in the Cincinnati area perform this procedure, as well as some general dentists.

I’m Doctor Eleanor Endres, and I’ve been practicing dentistry in Cincinnati since 2007. One of the most rewarding things about my job is seeing my Montgomery, Blue Ash, and Kenwood patients gain renewed confidence in themselves after undergoing simple cosmetic dentistry procedures.

We are currently accepting new patients, so if you are looking for quality dental care in the Cincinnati area, call us today at 513-914-4918 for an appointment!

White Fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings in Cincinnati Hello! Welcome to the Endres Gateway Dentistry dental blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our outstanding Cincinnati dental practice. If you have read some of our previous articles, we are glad you checked back with us. We post new articles regularly.

My name is Eleanor Endres, DMD. I have been practicing dentistry in Cincinnati since 2007. Endres Gateway Dentistry is a full-service dental office located at 9380 Montgomery Rd Ste 204 in Cincinnati. In addition to providing comprehensive examinations and deep cleanings for patients in the Cincinnati area, we perform all types of tooth restorations.

When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, a dental restoration is needed to restore the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations. A dental filling is used to repair decayed or damaged tooth surfaces. Most people have a few fillings in their mouth.

If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with nearly-invisible fillings that are tooth colored. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old silver fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly and relatively inexpensively by getting rid of the metal.

If you would like to replace your amalgam fillings, call us at 513-914-4918 to schedule a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients and would be happy to show you around our Cincinnati dental office and introduce you to our friendly team.

Smile – it increases your face value!

I enjoy using my years of training and experience to provide premium cosmetic dentistry for my patients in the Montgomery and Blue Ash area.

Do Veneers Make Teeth Look Bigger?

Montgomery cosmetic dental and tooth implants

A well-designed veneer does not make your tooth look larger – unless you want it to. A veneer can correct many cosmetic dental problems and is a minimally invasive restoration. During the placement of some porcelain veneers, an extremely thin layer of enamel is removed from the tooth.

If you have teeth with damage, discoloration, an irregular shape or minimal to moderate misalignment, you have several dental remedies to choose from. Don’t worry if you feel that veneers seem to have more cons than pros for you. You have alternative options. We can analyze your smile, your needs, and your goals to develop a perfect plan.

Endres Gateway Dentistry offers the highest standard of dental care and the full spectrum of vital services including:

Endres Gateway Dentistry has been improving smiles since 2007. We’ve scheduled Blue Ash patients for Invisalign. We’ve served patients from Kenwood with cosmetic dentistry. We’ve performed popular procedures like porcelain veneers for our patients in Montgomery. And we can advise you on any restorative, preventative, or cosmetic procedure in which you are interested.

Ask us about invisible braces, the cost of a dental bridge, or how long it takes to whiten your teeth.

With our busy schedules, we don’t want a long wait to see the dentist. Doctor Eleanor Endres’s team schedules carefully so we can keep your consultation convenient, pleasant, informative and thorough. Our staff is friendly and equipped to do it right.

Smile Makeovers: First Things First

smile design Cincinnati

Hello, I’m Doctor Eleanor Endres of Endres Gateway Dentistry. Thanks for visiting my blog. In today’s post, we will focus on something that happens occasionally when a patient requests cosmetic dentistry from their Cincinnati dentist.

Let me set the stage. The patient comes in for a consultation about a smile makeover. We’ll call him Mr. Jones. The dentist listens carefully as he explains the esthetic problems that he wants to remedy. Mr. Jones wants to fix two chipped teeth, get a dental implant for a tooth that is missing altogether, and whiten his whole smile. He describes what he envisions for his smile after undergoing treatment.

The dentist performs an examination of his entire mouth and takes x-rays. The dentist discovers some additional problems. There are three teeth with moderate decay, one tooth with acute decay, gum disease, an old crown with a crack in it, and severe bone recession at the potential dental implant site where the tooth was extracted ten years ago.

The dentist explains that these issues need to be addressed before the smile makeover is performed. Mr. Jones says that the smile makeover is his first priority and plans to deal with the other problems sometime in the future.

How does the dentist advise Mr. Jones? The dentist will probably explain that the lasting success of a cosmetic dental procedure such as porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or tooth whitening is influenced by the condition of the mouth at the time of treatment. There must be a solid, healthy foundation, so to speak, on which to build the smile makeover.

First things first. It makes no sense to attach a veneer to a decayed tooth that may need a root canal. A dental implant may not integrate with the surrounding bone structure if placed at a site where there is bone recession. Tooth whitening will probably not produce favorable results where there is gum disease and exposed tooth roots.

Can Mr. Jones ever have his dream smile? Yes! There are treatments to repair all of the problems mentioned previously. But just like many other things in life, the order of operations is critical.

If you are interested in a smile makeover or simply need a check-up, schedule an appointment by calling 513-914-4918. I look forward to discussing both your oral health and esthetic concerns.

Is Your Smile In A World Of Hurt?

full mouth reconstruction Cincinnati

Do you have severe tooth damage, bone loss, or few or no teeth still intact? This post is for Cincinnati area residents whose mouths are in a world of hurt.

First off, we feel for you. We understand how severe dental issues impact you every day of your life.

Whatever the cause of the condition – chemotherapy, recreational drug use, eating disorder, severe mouth injury, disability, inadequate oral hygiene, or simply poor overall health – there is hope.

Full mouth reconstruction can restore your previously healthy, pleasing smile or give you the dazzling smile you never had. Patients who undergo full mouth reconstruction regain their confidence to smile, eat, and speak normally. How would that affect your life?

Replacing missing teeth and adding bone through grafting restores underlying facial structure, improving or preventing that “sunk-in” look that arises when teeth are gone and the jawbone recedes.

Full mouth reconstruction (sometimes called full mouth restoration) is a term which refers to a combination of dental procedures that restore a smile for people with several damaged or missing teeth. Treatment may include any combination of the following procedures: crowns, inlays/onlays, dental bonding, white filling replacement, tooth implants, porcelain veneers, implant-anchored dentures, gum contouring, soft tissue grafts, bone grafts, and tooth whitening.

Dental implants are generally the best tooth replacement for Endres Gateway Dentistry patients with missing teeth. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. If there is not enough bone to anchor an implant, bone grafting may be carried out to augment existing bone. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the abutment and beautiful crown. Dental implants are indistinguishable from original teeth in both form and function.

If you currently have dentures, speak with us about implant-anchored full or partial dentures. Significant improvements can be made even if you only get two or three tooth implants.

Crowns (sometimes called caps) are used when there is enough viable tooth structure that the tooth doesn’t need to be extracted. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured. A crown can fix a bite misalignment and is usually required after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.

Endres Gateway Dentistry offers a full menu of cosmetic dental services including total mouth reconstruction. Cosmetic dentistry may be more economical than you think. Talk to us about financing or a multi-procedure treatment schedule that allows you to pay as you go. Restoring a healthy smile may be the best investment you ever make.

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Endres Gateway Dentistry In Cincinnati

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Endres Gateway Dentistry In Cincinnati Have you ever wished your Cincinnati cosmetic dentist could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.

Unlike a crown procedure, your Cincinnati dentist does not need to remove tooth structure to place the restoration. If the teeth in question have decay, come see us immediately.

Call 513-914-4918 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, veneers are used alone and in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures to create complete smile makeovers. Because they can correct cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’.

Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled Cincinnati cosmetic dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be made in any size or shape.

Are veneers at Endres Gateway Dentistry
strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, talk to Eleanor Endres. Dr. Endres will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.

How long do veneers last?
Some Endres Gateway Dentistry smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look terrific!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.

Are porcelain veneers affordable in Cincinnati
?
The cost of cosmetic dental veneers at Endres Gateway Dentistry is competitive with other premium cosmetic dental practices in the Cincinnati area. We use what we believe is the top Ohio dental lab to create our veneers and a significant portion of the cost of veneers goes to the lab. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive in Cincinnati than crowns and orthodontia. For questions about the cost of porcelain veneers, call our office at 513-914-4918
