When people think about cosmetic dentistry, they usually picture treatments like porcelain veneers or teeth whitening. But making your smile as healthy and beautiful as it can be often involves a variety of restorative treatments as well.
Crowns, bridges, and fillings are not normally thought of as cosmetic procedures. However, at the office of Joel R. Koch, DDS, we believe that every restoration, from a simple filling to a full set of dentures, is an opportunity to not only improve your oral health but also beautify your smile.
For over 30 years, Dr. Koch has performed every restorative procedure with an eye toward esthetics. Our on-site dental lab and skilled ceramicist allow you to be part of the process and ensure that you will be thrilled with the results every time.
No matter what you’d like to change about your smile, we’ll help you find a solution:
A veneer is a very thin slice of porcelain that’s bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers look natural, can be used on just one or several teeth, and correct many esthetic dental problems. In just a few visits to our West Chester dental office, we can correct the appearance of teeth that are chipped, discolored, or slightly misaligned.
We offer in-office whitening treatments but highly recommend our professional take-home teeth whitening kits for the best possible long-term results. All our whitening kits are customized specifically for you. Just wear the trays daily for about two weeks. You can expect to see whitening results of about 6 to 8 shades.
The updated material we use for fillings helps us create repairs that look more natural than ever before. Now we can create a filling that looks so much like your own teeth that even you may not be able to find the repair!
This same quality makes composite fillings an excellent, cost effective solution for dental bonding. Bonding is an affordable answer for correcting chips and cracks, filling uneven gaps and spaces between teeth, and concealing dental staining.
Dental crowns are most often thought of as a solution for a damaged tooth. But a crown fully encases your tooth, making it a perfect solution for many cosmetic problems. Crowns can hide an old, dark filling, cover a discolored tooth, and reshape a poorly proportioned tooth.
Millions of people have at least one tooth missing. A big gap in your smile isn’t just unattractive—it’s also unhealthy. Depending on your needs, we may suggest a dental bridge or full or partial denture to restore your smile. If you’re looking for a long-term solution for missing teeth, we’ll be happy to discuss the possibility of dental implants.
With all the amazing advances in dental materials and techniques in recent years, there’s really no limit to the stunning smile makeovers we can customize for you.
Please give us a call to arrange a convenient consultation with Dr. Koch. We look forward to helping you achieve the smile of your dreams!
