Spotlight-Ready Smiles

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.

Even a small improvement can have a big impact. One of the most popular procedures are porcelain veneers.

What are porcelain veneers? Veneers are paper-thin shells of durable material (ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin) bonded to the teeth to provide strength and add beauty to any smile. They mask flaws like gaps or chips.

What if you are missing one of your teeth? Dental implants are a great option.

What are dental implants? Dental implants are artificial roots made from lightweight titanium. They are implanted in the jaw to anchor a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we use cosmetic dentistry to enhance and improve smiles. We also offer restorative dentistry and other procedures. Also serving the Loveland, Blue Ash, and Montgomery OH areas. Call for an appointment today!

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!

The Techno-Toothbrush

Are electric toothbrushes any better at cleaning your teeth than manual toothbrushes? The answer depends on who you ask, because both have their advocates. In this article from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we aren’t going to recommend one over the other. We’re just going to take a look at the world of the electric toothbrush.

Electric toothbrushes have been commercially available in the United States since the 1960s. But they first appeared in Switzerland, where they were invented. They caught on quickly, and have evolved considerably since then. When it comes to electric toothbrushes, there is a lot of choose from.

Those earliest electric toothbrushes did not have rechargeable batteries; you had to plug them in. That wasn’t really much of an issue, unless you like to walk away from the sink while you brush.

Rechargeable batteries are standard in most modern electric toothbrushes. In fact, they have features that those 1960s inventors probably never dreamed of. Some models have:

  • Timers, so you can make sure you brush at least two minutes
  • Digital alerts, to remind you it’s time for a new brush head
  • Pressure sensors that tell you if you’re brushing too hard
  • Multiple brush head capability, so different types fit
  • Variable brushing features like pulsing and oscillating capability

Sonic

And then there’s the sonic toothbrush. Sonic toothbrushes take electric brushes to a whole new level. Toothbrush manufacturers consider them a subset of electric brushes, but we think they are in a class by themselves.

Sonic toothbrushes can deliver up to 40,000 strokes per minute. Compare that to an ordinary electric toothbrush, which deliver between 2,500 and 7,000 strokes per minute. That’s quite a difference. For some people, that’s over the top. But advocates say that sonic toothbrushes out-perform any other type of toothbrush you can find.

When all is said and done, it depends on the person doing the brushing. A manual toothbrush used properly does a fine job cleaning your teeth. But you can always take it to the next level with a standard electric, or even a sonic, toothbrush.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, what we really want is for each of our patients to brush and floss their teeth twice a day. It’s the best way to ensure good dental health. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

How Can You Improve Your Smile Quickly?

Porcelain VeneersWith porcelain veneers from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, you can revamp your smile without significant restorative dental work.

Porcelain veneers are glass-like, wafer-thin covers that are attached to the front of your teeth. Porcelain has been used in dentistry for many years because no other restorative material is such an excellent match for natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is translucent and can be matched to the color of any tooth. It is stronger than enamel and resists stains.

Dental ceramists who fabricate porcelain veneers are both artists and technicians. They create beautiful paper-thin wafers that adhere to teeth, correcting chips and stains. Porcelain veneers can also straighten crooked teeth for patients who don’t need orthodontic work.

Patients who receive porcelain veneers appreciate the less-invasive process of enhancing their smile. Newer techniques require no removal of healthy tooth enamel.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, porcelain veneers are just one of the cosmetic dentistry procedures we offer. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Tooth Whitening And Your Dentist

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures we provide at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. It seems everyone is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter.

Many individuals are turning to over-the-counter products to whiten their teeth. These can be effective, but come with certain drawbacks.

Here is some basic advice on teeth whitening:

First, we encourage you to visit our office before starting a whitening system. We can help you determine whether your teeth can be whitened safely and effectively. We can also recommend whitening products that will work best for you.

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products will provide varying degrees of whitening. If used incorrectly, they can lead to issues like sensitivity, over whitening, spotty coloration, and even damage to your tooth enamel.

Avoid Problems By Seeing Endres Gateway Dentistry First

We recommend you talk to us at Endres Gateway Dentistry before beginning any self-treatment. We’ll discuss the various whitening systems and check your teeth to make sure you will get the best possible tooth whitening results.

There won’t be a hard sell, but we can also talk about professional teeth whitening. We use KoR whitening, a highly effective teeth whitening system. There is an in-office treatment that can transform your smile in one office visit, and a professional-strength take-home kit you can do at your convenience, and will deliver results that are superior to anything available at the grocery store.

Wear A Crown

Wear A Crown In Cincinnati

A dental crown is a cap or covering that fits over a tooth to restore it to its original shape and size. At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we place a lot of dental crowns.

Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. We usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.

Dental crowns have been used successfully in dentistry for decades.

Dental crowns are useful in smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.

Once they have been placed, a crown fully encases the part of a damated tooth that sits above the gum line. They fit over the tooth in much the same way a thimble fits over the tip of a thumb or finger. Once they are in place they can endure the constant pressure of daily chewing, just as well as the rest of your teeth.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati we place a lot of dental crowns. Other services include family dentistry. We serve the Loveland, Blue Ash, and Montgomery areas. Make an appointment with us today.
