How porcelain veneers from your dentist in Cincinnati, OH, can give you an outstanding smile

Are you hiding your smile because of damage, stains, or uneven, chipped tooth edges? If so, it’s time for you to rejuvenate your smile with porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can give you the smile you deserve, quicker and easier than you’ve ever thought possible. Dr. Janette A. Williams at Montgomery Dental Care in Cincinnati, OH, offers porcelain veneer treatment to give you an outstanding smile.

What veneers can do for you

Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dental treatments available today because they can hide a number of minor and major flaws, including:

  • Stains, blotches, and discolorations from lifestyle habits or genetics
  • Chipped, worn down tooth edges due to grinding, aging, or wear-and-tear
  • Cracks, fracture lines, or areas of broken tooth structure from trauma or an injury

Porcelain veneers can even minimize the appearance of gaps between your teeth by cosmetically making teeth appear closer together. Veneers can also minimize the appearance of overlapping or rotated teeth by cosmetically making teeth appear straighter.

Another major benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are a conservative treatment. This is because your dentist removes little-to-no tooth structure to apply them—just enough to compensate for the thickness of the veneers.

When you choose porcelain veneers, you are choosing a lifetime of beautiful smiles because porcelain is stain-resistant, allowing your porcelain veneers to stay looking new for years.

Your porcelain veneer treatment will require between two and three appointments to complete, including a consultation appointment. During the first visit, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers, and then models are taken of your teeth. These models are sent to a dental laboratory where skilled dental artisans create your new veneers. Once Dr. Williams receives your new veneers, a cementation appointment will be scheduled and the veneers will be permanently bonded on to your teeth

How cosmetic dentistry procedures from your dentist in Cincinnati, Ohio can enhance your smile.

If your smile needs a little bit of renewed vitality, you need to discover the world of cosmetic dentistry. With so many cosmetic dentistry options to choose from, there is a procedure that is sure to enhance your smile. Dr. Janette Williams at Montgomery Dental Care in Cincinnati, Ohio offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options to give you your best smile.

Cosmetic dentistry offers procedures to make your smile more beautiful. If nature didn’t give you a wonderful smile, cosmetic dentistry can change that. Let’s take a look at just a few of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services:

Professional teeth whitening, which is an excellent choice to enhance a dull, aging, yellowing smile; you can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades, and your great results can last for years! Professional teeth whitening products are the safe way to get rid of dark stains and give you a more brilliant, younger-looking smile. The in-office treatment takes only about an hour.

Cosmetic bonding and recontouring, which is the perfect option to repair teeth that are chipped, eroded, worn-down, or broken; bonding uses composite, a liquid material that your dentist can match to the color of your teeth. The composite is sculpted into place and hardened with a blue light. Your bonding treatment will look completely natural and give you a whole, beautiful smile. Bonding is often combined with recontouring to balance out an uneven smile by reshaping jagged, uneven edges of your teeth.

Porcelain veneers, which are a superb choice to hide minor and major areas of tooth damage; they are a versatile, conservative dental treatment and can hide problems like these:

  • Chipped, worn-down, or eroded teeth
  • Cracked, fractured, or broken teeth
  • Blotchy, discolored, or stained teeth

They can even hide some alignment issues including minimizing gaps between your teeth, reducing the appearance of overlapped teeth, and minimizing the look of crowding. Porcelain veneers look completely natural because porcelain is light-reflective and closely resembles tooth enamel. Porcelain is stain-resistant too, so your new veneers will stay looking beautiful for years.

These are just a few of the many cosmetic dentistry options available for you to consider. To find out more about what cosmetic dentistry can do for your smile, call Dr. Janette Williams at Montgomery Dental Care in Cincinnati, Ohio today.

A dental crown from your dentist in Cincinnati, OH, can give you a stronger smile

Did you know that damaging your teeth is easier than you think? It's true! Everyday habits like biting your nails, opening packages with your teeth, and chewing ice cubes can all work to damage your teeth. If you clench or grind your teeth at night, your smile can also suffer major damage.

Fortunately, you can strengthen your teeth and your smile with dental crowns! Here at Montgomery Dental Care in Cincinnati, OH, your dentist, Dr. Janette Williams, offers a wide range of services, including dental crowns to give you a stronger smile. Read on to learn if this treatment could be right for you.

More about dental crowns

Whether your teeth are cracked, broken, or chipped at the edges, dental crowns can help. A dental crown strengthens your tooth by covering its entire visible surface above the gum line, thereby distributing biting and chewing forces across your whole smile. By evenly distributing the pressure and force of chewing, your previously compromised tooth is far less likely to become further damaged.

In addition to strengthening your smile, crowns can also make your smile more beautiful as well! That's because one of the main dental crown materials is porcelain, a light-reflective material that closely resembles natural tooth enamel.

A full porcelain crown can give you the dazzling look you want, and the strength your need for your smile. Furthermore, porcelain is stain-resistant, allowing the crown to stay bright and beautiful for years!

If you need increased chewing strength for your back teeth, you might also consider a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. PFM crowns combine the exquisite beauty of porcelain with the strength of a metal underlay, making them a fantastic choice for back teeth.
