People are hard-wired to remember faces. While many accepted this notion as common knowledge, a National Institutes of Health study confirmed it in 2014. After extensive measuring of automatic responses, the researchers revealed that “impressions from faces are fast and automatic.” To make that first impression a good one, your smile is an asset central to your face.
And when those in West Chester, OH, are less than happy with their smiles, Dr. Joel R. Koch D.D.S. is here to help. With over 30 years of experience, he can perform nearly every cosmetic dental procedure available today.
Common to All Treatments is Listening
Before Dr. Koch even touches an instrument, he will practice one of his most effective skills: listening. First, he will encourage you to discuss your smile goals, concerns, and the treatments you might prefer. Then, Dr. Koch and his team will guide you, explain the available therapies, make recommendations, and cover all variables like cost and time to completion. Some of the most popular treatments are:
Cosmetic Bonding for Simple Repairs
With dental bonding, Dr. Koch uses the same material as tooth-colored fillings, and layers it to restore minor chips and tooth fractures, and covers teeth that have become discolored. The process is simple, and in many cases, requires no numbing agents. Often, Dr. Koch can repair multiple teeth in a single sitting.
Porcelain Veneers Restore Whole Surfaces
Porcelain veneers consist of thin ceramic chips that Dr. Koch will adhere to your tooth for instant improvement. Veneers resist staining and maintain a brilliant sheen for many years if you treat them carefully. Veneers also minimize tooth sensitivity as they can replace damaged enamel that may otherwise allow hot and cold sensations to irritate your tooth nerve.
We Create Our Own Crowns!
While dental crowns often follow root canal therapy, they also may be used for cosmetic reasons. Since crowns fit over a tooth, they can cover all tooth surfaces, while a veneer only covers the front-facing surface.
We build our custom dental crowns at our on-site custom dental lab. So rather than wait weeks for an outside lab to create a crown, we can have it done here on the same day.
Teeth Whitening for Professional Results
Teeth whitening is a safe and affordable way to improve the look of your smile. Dr. Koch offers both in-office teeth whitening and customized take-home kits.
In-office teeth whitening produces fast results, but our take-home kits provide the most noticeable and durable improvements. We create a custom tray so that it fits perfectly. After using your trays for 20 to 30 minutes every day, after a couple of weeks, your results will be a stunningly white smile.
