Columbus Cosmetic Dentist - Teeth Whitening Bexley - Ohio

If you have been looking in Columbus for a cosmetic dentist, our office offers many cosmetic dentistry services from veneers, to teeth whitening, and bonding. We service the Columbus, Ohio and Bexley, Ohio areas and welcome new patients.  Our staff will ensure your cosmetic dental procedures are consistent with all your treatment goals.

Veneers

A veneer is a thin covering that is placed over the front of a tooth that may be chipped, discolored or needs an uneven space corrected. Veneers can greatly improve the appearance of your smile. There are two types of veneers available: ceramic veneers which are thin, extremely durable shells made in a lab and composite resin veneers made by the cosmetic dentist in our Columbus office. To do a ceramic veneer or laminate (as they are sometimes called) the dentist removes a small amount of enamel from the front and side of your tooth to make room for the veneer and then takes an impression so the shape of the preparation and surrounding teeth can be replicated. During your second visit to the office your temporary veneers are removed, your dentist places the final veneers to check for fit and shape. After all adjustments are made the veneers are bonded to the teeth with dental cement. Further adjustments can be done at a subsequent appointment if needed.

Composite veneers can generally be done in one appointment. The tooth or teeth are prepared or reshaped and then the dentist carefully bonds and sculpts the composite material in a color that matches your other teeth. A special light is used to harden the composite and then the veneer is smoothed and polished to look like a natural tooth.

To be a candidate for veneers, the tooth or teeth must be free of decay and active periodontal disease. Columbus Cosmetic Dentist can treat these conditions before a veneer is made. If you would like to improve your smile, call Columbus Cosmetic Kaufman Dental Group to schedule a consultation or to get more information about dental veneers.

Whitening

Our Columbus cosmetic dentists also perform teeth whitening.  It is a natural occurrence that our teeth darken as we age. Sometimes the darkening of our teeth is accelerated by abnormal grinding or clenching habits that patients may develop through their lives. And sometimes we are just born with darkish looking teeth. To help restore your youthful smile or lighten the natural shade of your teeth we provide custom made clear retainers that are worn with whitening gels to lighten your teeth. We also offer in office whitening for faster results.

Bonding

A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly and painlessly restore your smile’s natural beauty. During the procedure, a thin coating of plastic resin is painted over the damaged tooth and shaped, strengthening them and making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
