If you would like to improve your smile, you couldn’t choose a more experienced or skilled dentist than Dr. Koch. Please call us today to schedule a dental appointment to see how we can improve your smile.
Choosing the Right Cosmetic Dental Treatment
One of the things that Dr. Koch has learned to do really well over the decades he's been practicing is to listen to his patients. And listening is the key to helping you choose the cosmetic dental treatment or treatments that will help you achieve your smile goals.
The first step is to talk to you about what your concerns are and if you have any cosmetic dental treatments you have in mind. So, when you make your appointment for your smile consultation, it’s a good idea to make a list of your questions or concerns.
Doing so helps us help you pinpoint what changes you’d like to see. It also allows Dr. Koch to guide you, make recommendations, and explain all available treatment options. Before we begin your smile makeover, you’ll know what to expect, including the time and expense involved.
Tooth-Colored Dental Fillings
Today we use tooth-colored composite material to create dental fillings that closely match the appearance of dental enamel. You’ll hear these referred to as composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings or dental composites.
The beauty of this material is that it has a translucent quality that is similar to dental enamel. Before Dr. Koch places your filling, he will help you choose a shade so that the repair blends beautifully with the damaged tooth and those around it. Once we’re finished, no one will know you have a filling, and even you may not be able to find the repair!
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
The same natural-looking characteristics make tooth-colored composite material perfect for a procedure called cosmetic dental bonding.
With dental bonding, Dr. Koch builds up layers of the material to cover chips and cracks, corrects uneven spacing between teeth, and hide stained or discolored teeth. The process is simple, and in many cases, we don't need to administer an anesthetic. In fact, Dr. Koch can often repair more than one tooth in a single appointment.
Dental bonding is also an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers. If you’d like the results of veneers without the price tag, dental bonding at our West Chester, OH dental office is a solution you should consider!
Dental veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that are shaped and shaded to blend with surrounding teeth. We bond veneers to the front surfaces of your teeth, and they conceal flaws such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Broken teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Uneven spacing between teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
Dr. Koch can place just one or two veneers, or he can customize a full set to achieve the look you want. In as little as two visits, we can place porcelain dental veneers at our West Chester, OH dental office that conceals numerous cosmetic smile flaws.
Professional Teeth Whitening
You can’t beat a professional teeth whitening treatment to give your smile and your confidence a boost. Dr. Koch offers both in-office teeth whitening and customized take-home kits.
While an in-office whitening session will produce fast results, we highly recommend our professional take-home teeth whitening kits. Over the years, we've found that they provide the most dramatic, long-lasting results.
We customize your take-home kit so that the whitening trays fit perfectly and keep the whitening gel on your teeth and away from tender gum tissue. After wearing your trays for 20 to 30 minutes every day for two weeks, you’ll see results that are about six shades brighter.
All-Porcelain Dental Crowns
You probably think of dental crowns as being a solution to restore damaged or broken teeth. But since crowns fit over a tooth, we can also use them to correct the appearance of teeth that are severely discolored or poorly shaped. If you're tired of dark, discolored metal fillings, Dr. Koch can also use dental crowns to conceal them.
We can choose from a variety of materials to customize a dental crown including all-porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and gold. Patients at our West Chester, OH dental office typically choose all-porcelain because it looks so much like tooth enamel and blends seamlessly with your smile.
We fabricate all our dental restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures at our on-site custom dental lab. Instead of using an outside lab and hoping for the best, we work closely with our ceramicist to ensure that you are thrilled with the outcome!
Full and Partial Dentures
Are you one of the millions of people who are missing at least one tooth? That big gap in your smile is not just a cosmetic problem; it’s also unhealthy. There are several options available today to replace missing teeth at our West Chester, OH dental office. Depending on your needs, Dr. Koch may recommend a dental bridge or full or partial denture to complete your smile.
