You Be The Judge

smile makeover cost Cincinnati

If you are researching cosmetic dentistry in Montgomery OH, you may have heard claims that it can provide you with a ‘perfect smile’ or a ‘celebrity smile.’ Are these simply exaggerations? We invite you to judge for yourself.

A smile makeover involves multiple procedures which may include the following:

Tooth Implants

A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.

Orthodontia

Orthodontic options include traditional metal or ceramic braces, ‘behind-the-teeth’ (lingual) braces, and clear aligners.

White Fillings

If you had dental caries in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, dramatically improving your smile without crowns.

Dental Crowns

There are many different kinds of crowns that serve different purposes. We perform an intensive examination to ensure the crown you get is perfect for you and your smile.

Inlays/Onlays

Inlays/onlays are indirect fillings, which means that they are fabricated in a lab and placed whole on the tooth. A traditional direct filling is applied to the tooth while the material is malleable and then shaped by the dentist. Where possible, an inlay or an onlay can be a less-invasive alternative to a complete crown.

Composite Veneers

Veneers can correct chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size.

Teeth Whitening

There is nothing like a wonderful white smile to give you optimal confidence.

Dental Bonding

Dentists use bonding to correct tooth troubles caused by decay, chips, or cracks. Large spaces between healthy teeth can be filled with bonding material, and bonding can guard tooth roots if the gums have loosened.

Enamel Shaping

Just one slightly misshapen tooth can downgrade the characteristics of a smile even if all the other teeth have a pleasing appearance.

Gum Contouring

If you have a gumline that is too low or too high and detracts from the presentation, gum contouring can reshape the gumline and transform your smile.

Perfect smiles with cosmetic dentistry are possible—but don’t just take our word for it. Come see the Endres Gateway Dentistry smile gallery and judge for yourself. Even better, schedule an appointment to visit our office. We serve the Montgomery, Blue Ash, and surrounding Cincinnati area.

Almost Undetectable: Clear Braces in Cincinnati

Invisalign clear braces produce excellent results in many patients. Most people love them because they are comfortable and convenient, and almost undetectable. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets or rubber bands. You can get Invisalign clear braces from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati.

Invisalign braces are so inconspicuous that some people call them invisible. They look a lot like an athlete’s mouth guard. The proper term for such braces is “aligner.” They are made of clear plastic and are worn over your teeth to gradually bring them into alignment.

One of the things that people like best about Invisalign clear braces is that they are removable. You can take them out at mealtime, and when you brush your teeth at night. You should wear them while you sleep, however. For the best results it’s recommended they be worn for at least twenty-two hours each day.

Invisalign clear braces are a great choice for adults who didn’t have braces when they were younger, but don’t want to wear traditional braces at work. They are not, however, right for everyone, such as patients with severely rotated teeth.

To find out if Invisalign clear braces are right for you, schedule a consultation with Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. We also provide family dentistry, and a full range of cosmetic dentistry services. Make an appointment with us today.

Crooked Teeth And Cavities

fast braces Cincinnati

Straight teeth are more appealing than crooked teeth. But appearance is not the only reason to seek orthodontic care. As we know at Endres Gateway Dentistry, clean teeth are easier to care for, and tend to be healthier.

When uneven teeth begin to crowd together, it becomes difficult to make essential daily cleanings effective. And when your teeth aren’t cleaned properly, problems with plaque build-up, cavities, and gum disease may ensue.

If you are curious if your teeth are crowding or if your bite is not aligned, please pay us a visit. We’ll evaluate whether you need to see an orthodontist, and if so, recommend one near you.

If you feel that the appearance of your teeth is an issue, ask us about a smile makeover. There are many cosmetic dentistry procedures performed daily. These include teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, and crowns.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we provide family and cosmetic dentistry. We can correct your bite with Invisalign clear braces. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Persistent Dry Mouth? We can help

The Endres Gateway Dentistry Guide To Dry Mouth

At Endres Gateway Dentistry we are specialists in all aspects of oral health, from family dentistry to orthodontics. We serve patients from all over the Cincinnati area.

Many residents in our community experience dry mouth occasionally. Some develop dry mouth in social situations or when they are under a lot of stress. Sporadic or infrequent dry mouth is usually not a serious problem. But constant dry mouth, known as xerostomia, is not only irritating, it can lead to acute health problems.

Never take your saliva for granted. It plays a vital role in maintaining your health. One of its roles is to help digest your food. The moment food enters your mouth, saliva starts breaking it down so your body can metabolize it. If you don’t produce enough saliva to carry out this task, your body may not be getting all of the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.

Saliva also functions as a disinfectant by cleansing the mouth of leftover food, bacteria, and fungi. This helps prevent tooth decay and infections. Many people don’t realize that some of the foods we eat are very acidic, and that saliva helps counteract those acids in our mouths.

Dr. Eleanor Endres and her staff at Endres Gateway Dentistry have been treating xerostomia since 2007. For starters, Dr. Endres recommends cutting back on caffeine in such drinks as cola, coffee, and tea. Not only do these beverages stain and discolor your teeth, the caffeine can contribute to dry mouth. She also recommend drinking water throughout the day to make sure you are adequately hydrated.

Tobacco and alcohol can also contribute to dry mouth. So can certain medications. IF you have been prescribed a medication and also have dry mouth, consult with your physician to see if dry mouth is a side effect.

Dry mouth is not a natural part of aging, so call Endres Gateway Dentistry today and schedule an appointment if your dry mouth is getting worse as you grow older.
