Cosmetic Dentistry

Do you feel confident enough about the appearance of your teeth to share a big smile? Or do you hold back because cosmetic flaws make you feel self-conscious?

A big confident smile radiates warmth, happiness, and positivity. These are all important qualities to communicate in a world of selfies, social media, and video calls, where you need to look and feel your best.

How Cosmetic Dentistry Improves Your Smile

Cosmetic dental treatments in Troy, OH, address whatever you don't love about your smile's aesthetics and improve it. Whether you want to fix a chipped tooth with bonding or create a dramatic smile makeover with a full set of crowns, Dr. Andrew Katerakis can help you achieve your goal.

If you made a wish list of flaws you'd like to improve, would it include any of the following?

  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn down or broken teeth
  • Old, dark fillings
  • Wide or uneven gaps and spacing
  • Slight tooth misalignment
  • Tooth shape and size differences
  • Stained, discolored, or yellow teeth

The first step is an appointment so you and Dr. Katerakis can talk about your smile goals, and he can recommend the treatment to help you achieve them.

Tooth-Colored Fillings and Bonding

Composite resin fillings are aesthetic because we color-match the shade to the tooth to improve its appearance. The material starts with a putty-like consistency so our cosmetic dentist can expertly shape it to match the tooth's contours. He then uses a curing light to harden and set the material, and the result is a virtually invisible, seamless repair.

Dental bonding uses the same material to fill in chips or breaks, even out gaps between teeth, or change a tooth's shape to improve its appearance. Bonding is also an affordable alternative to veneers.

Dental Veneers

When you look at a celebrity with perfectly symmetrical, bright white teeth, there's a good chance they've had some help from dental veneers!

A veneer is a custom-shaped shell covering a tooth's surface. The veneer is designed to conceal broken teeth, discolored teeth, and even slight tooth misalignments to create a uniformly flawless appearance.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a fast and affordable way to improve your smile's appearance and give you a nice confidence boost. Our efficient in-office whitening treatment provides dramatic results and is perfect for getting you ready in time for a big event like a wedding or reunion.

We offer professional take-home kits with custom whitening trays made using impressions of your teeth. Our kits contain varying strengths of whitening gel, with the trays providing even coverage and consistent results.

You will use your trays and gel provided to whiten your teeth at home for about 20 minutes daily. At the end of two weeks, we'll have you return for a follow-up visit to evaluate your progress and see if you are happy with the results or have experienced any sensitivity. 

Zirconia Dental Crowns

Crowns are considered a solution for broken or damaged teeth, but we also use them for cosmetic purposes. Since they cover a tooth completely, we may recommend a dental crown to hide a dark or discolored tooth or change a tooth's shape when veneers aren't an option.
