Why Aren’t You Smiling?

Cincinnati Dentistry

It’s unfortunate, but true: a lot of people don’t smile because they are embarrassed by the state of their teeth. At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, cosmetic dentistry can improve just about any aspect of your smile!

When we think of smiles, the first thing we think of are the teeth, of course. But we take more than just the teeth into consideration when we design a patient’s smile: skin tone, hair color, the lips, gum tissue – all the things that make up your facial appearance. And of course, that includes the teeth themselves.

We’ll ask you some very specific questions: what is it about your smile that you don’t like, and want to imrpove? A well-shaped smile consists of bright white teeth, set against the appearance of your face.

Here are some of the considerations:

  • Alignment and spacing of teeth. Your teeth may be slightly crooked, or overlapping; there may be gaps between some of them. We can align teeth with clear braces, and improve their appearance with porcelain veneers.
  • Discolored teeth. Teeth grow dull over the years, and get stained from all manner of food and drink. Professional teeth whitening can restore the whiteness to your smile.
  • Missing teeth. A missing tooth is very unsightly. Dental implants can replace a missing tooth and restore your smile! An implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw, with an artificial tooth mounted on top. They look and function like the real thing.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, our overall goal is using cosmetic dentistry to bring your smile into harmony and balance. Patients from Montgomery, Blue Ash, and Kenwood have come to our practice to improve their smiles. We also offer comprehensive family dentistry. Please call us to schedule an appointment today!

Cosmetic Dentistry vs. General Dentistry

Cincinnati Cosmetic Dentistry

This post from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati highlights the differences between general and cosmetic dentistry.

General dentistry, also known as family dentistry, is about preventing and treating oral diseases such as cavities and gum disease. When a problem is diagnosed, like a cavity, a general dentist determines the best way to address it.

Cosmetic dentistry is a term for elective dental procedures that make a smile more attractive. Examples include teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.

Sometimes there is overlap, and sometimes the terminology gets a different spin from one practice to the next. For example, one dentist might call a dental implant cosmetic, while another will call it general or restorative. It’s the same procedure, of course, and used for the same reasons.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we are a full-service practice meeting the needs of all our patients. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry, of course. Our clients also come from from Loveland, Blue Ash, Montgomery OH, and the surrounding area. Call our office to schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!

3 Smart Smile Solutions

smile makeovers Cincinnati

In this blog post from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we focus on three innovative procedures used in smile transformations.

1. Dental Implants
Dental implants are transforming the face of dentistry. For most patients, an implant is the ideal solution for a missing tooth. They consist of a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace a missing root. A crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.

Once the crown is placed, the result is indistinguishable from a natural tooth.

2. Clear Braces
Clear braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn. We offer clear braces from Invisalign.

3. White Fillings
If you had decay in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly improving your smile without crowns.

Endres Gateway Dentistry is located in Cincinnati, but serves patients from Blue Ash, Loveland, Montgomery OH, and the surrounding area. Call today to schedule an appointment.

Are Dental Veneers Reversible?

prepless veneers

When people think about improving their smiles with cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers are a popular option. At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, veneers correct flaws and leave you with a magnificent smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic or composite resin. We custom fit veneers one at a time to go over the front of your teeth, giving them an attractive, completely natural appearance. You can use veneers to fix stained or chipped teeth, slightly crooked teeth, or abnormally spaced teeth.

Veneers are one of the most in-demand options available from modern cosmetic dentistry. They are very strong, and are made to match the color and shape of your teeth.

One thing to remember: a thin layer of enamel must be removed from the front of each tooth being covered with a veneer, in order for them to properly adhere. Once they’re cemented in place, they are permanent. But once they are in place, you’ll have the best-looking teeth of anyone you know.

Porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

The Endres Gateway Dentistry Guide To Teeth Whitening

teeth whitening Cincinnati

So you want to whiten your teeth? Teeth whitening from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati is a way to enhance your smile, look younger, and feel more confident when you interact with people in business or social settings.

Here are five things we recommend when it comes to teeth whitening:

  1. Meet with us for a consultation first. There are several different teeth whitening systems and a consultation will help you identify which protocol is best for you.
  2. It is important to know that whitening does not affect existing fillings, veneers, or crowns.
  3. Decide how many shades lighter you want your teeth to be at the end of the treatment. Depending on the whitening method chosen, your teeth can be improved three to eight shades.
  4. We offer in-office KoR Whitening, and a take-home KoR whitening kit.
  5. With any of the teeth whitening systems, tooth sensitivity may take place. In most cases, it won’t last for more than a day or so. Call us if it lasts longer.

Teeth whitening from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati is just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we make available. Call our office today to find out how we can brighten your smile!

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!
