Porcelain Veneers And Instant Orthodontics

Cincinnati Porcelain Veneers and Instant Orthodontics

If you have been paying attention to orthodontics in recent years, you probably have heard about clear braces and speed braces. These new  procedures have been welcomed by many people, especially adults who want an alternative to traditional metal braces. Both are available at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati.

There’s more good news for men and women who want to straighten their teeth. How about ‘instant orthodontics’?

We’re talking about porcelain veneers. Strictly speaking, they are not orthodontics; usually they are classified as cosmetic dentistry. Veneers are thin ceramic shells that are custom-made to fit over the front part of your teeth. They’re great for fixing slightly crooked teeth, which is why they’re sometimes called instant orthodontics.

Veneers are also a solution for abnormally spaced, stained or chipped teeth.

Along with Invisalign clear braces, porcelain veneers are available at name of practice. Call for an appointment today!

Six 10-Second Healthy Tooth Helps

Montgomery cosmetic dental and tooth implantsIt doesn’t have to take a lot of time to improve your oral hygiene. In fact, you can form a new habit to benefit your oral health in 10 seconds. Here are six tips from Endres Gateway Dentistry on ways to offer add dental care to each day in 60 seconds or less.

Find a better place for your toothbrush.
Look around. In 10 seconds you can probably find 5 places to set your toothbrush that will allow air drying and can inhibit the growth of microorganisms that a closed, moist environment would encourage.

Leave the floss on the counter.
If you want to establish consistency, you need reminders. Deliberately setting out the floss will give you more commitment to use it. And if you see it, you’ll remember that commitment.

Swish.
If you’re in 20 seconds already, might as well grab the fluoride rinse and wash away bits of food after flossing and freshen your breath at the same time. 10 seconds is the minimum but 20 is twice as good.

Smile in the mirror.
Check out those chompers. Examine for 10 full seconds. Scrutinize gums for bleeding or tenderness, missed fragments of food, staining, or other concerns.

Have a water chaser with dark beverages.
Rinse your mouth with a sip of water when drinking cola, tea, or coffee throughout the day. A mere 10 seconds that will suppress discoloration.

Call Endres Gateway Dentistry.

10 digits, 10 seconds, a short conversation and you can secure yourself a consultation with me and my friendly staff. I will examine your teeth for far more than 10 seconds and help keep your smile healthy and beautiful.

Two Hints For When You’re Too Tired To Brush

Montgomery gentle dentist

Too tired to touch a toothbrush? We’ve all been there. In this blog post from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we offer two smart ideas for overcoming exhaustion in favor of brushing and flossing late at night.

Idea #1 Drag Tongue Along Teeth
After a long thankless day as you are lying there in bed and realize you forgot to brush, drag your tongue over your teeth a few times while mentally reviewing how plaque forms. Within 48 hours it can start eating away at the teeth. Then jump up and give your mouth just 2 minutes of gentle, thorough cleaning. It’s that uncomplicated.

Idea #2 Scrutinize the Food You Eat
Another convenient and simple approach is to pay attention to what’s going into your mouth throughout the day. The higher the sugar content the sooner the teeth will need a brushing to avoid harm. Swish with water after coffee, tea or soda if brushing isn’t going to happen soon. Chewing sticky candy leaves debris all over in the mouth as does bread and crackers. Keep this in mind and commit to take care of the particles as soon as possible.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati we are committed to helping patients maintain good dental health. It all begins with daily brushing and flossing! Our services include family and restorative dentistry. Our patients also come from Blue Ash, Loveland, and Montgomery OH. Call us to schedule your next checkup today!

The Endres Gateway Dentistry Guide To Veneers

porcelain veneers cost Cincinnati

It’s easy to see why people love the porcelain veneers we offer at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. They correct a multitude of flaws and and transform smiles from dull to memorable.

If you are thinking about improving your smile with porcelain veneers, you want a trusted dentist with extensive experience performing this treatment. The procedure is more complicated than you may realize.

A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin ceramic shell – about .5mm or 1/64 inches thick. The shell is permanently attached to the front of a tooth and are custom made for each patient. They cover chips, cracks, and stains, and can improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.

While preparing a tooth for a veneer is less invasive than preparing a tooth for a crown, it is not a reversible procedure. A microscopically small amount of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we have long experience with porcelain veneers. They’re just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we use to transform smiles. We see patients from Loveland, Blue Ash, Montgomery OH, and all over Cincinnati. Call for an appointment today!

what are dental implants

A mouth full of unattractive teeth can distract from anyone’s appearance. But having a red-carpet-worthy smile brings you increased satisfaction and self-confidence. You can get that high-wattage smile with cosmetic dentistry from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati.

Cosmetic dentistry is an umbrella term for a range of dental procedures that can improve and enhance your smile. We have many techniques we can use, depending on the state of your smile: we can correct teeth that are discolored, chipped, mis-shapen, and even replace teeth that are missing.

Think You Know How To Brush? Think Again.

Cincinnati tooth brushing tips

You’ve been doing it since you were five. You switch to auto pilot morning and night and get it done. But are you doing it right? At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we find that many of our patients make mistakes in their brushing, and could benefit from some helpful reminders.

Here are important tooth brushing tips:

1. Take your time.
After a long day, you want to get it over with and go to bed. But teeth cleaning takes time and careful attention. Time yourself the next time you brush—you might be surprised at how rapidly you finish. The process should take at least two to three minutes.

2. Don’t forget to floss.
No matter how agile you can be with your brush, it’s all but impossible to clear away the plaque from all those narrow gaps between your teeth. That is where bacteria can easily propagate and start the decay process. Flossing is an important part of the process.

3. Use the right toothbrush.
It is ironic that some people damage their enamel or gums because they brush too vigorously with a rigid brush. We recommend using a soft brush.

4. Don’t keep your tooth brush near the toilet.
This is awful to think about, but each time the toilet is flushed, bacteria is sent far into the air—even if you close the lid. Keep your toothbrush in a clean place and allow it to air dry.

5. Use fluoride toothpaste.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but some toothpastes don’t contain fluoride. It isn’t just for kids, either. Your enamel is consistently under assault from acidic foods and drinks and fluoride helps it remineralize.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, our services include family and restorative dentistry. We get patients from all over, including Loveland, Blue Ash, and Montgomery OH.

The Tea And Teeth Question

Cincinnati teeth bleaching best price

Here’s a riddle from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati: what do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.

Lame jokes aside, a common concern for patients is stained teeth. In this blog post, we’re going to talk a little bit about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages including tea.

Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Daily oral hygiene is crucial.

Between cleanings, rinse with water after drinking tea. Be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, you may want to consider teeth bleaching. We offer KoR teeth whitening, in both take-home and in-office versions. Both are fast and effective ways to brighten your smile.

Professional teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. Patients come to us from Loveland, Blue Ash, Montgomery OH, and the surrounding area. Schedule an appointment today!
