A cosmetic dentist focuses on creating your picture perfect smile. Even the most challenging cases can have exceptional results with the advances in cosmetic dentistry methods. As a Cincinnati cosmetic dentist, our office has many available choices to improve your smile. This includes implant fixtures, bridges, dentures, inlays, onlays, composite bonding, teeth whitening and veneers. Not every cosmetic dental procedure option is right for everyone, so each patient must discuss their individual treatment goals with Dr. Khetarpal to find the most effective treatment option.

It is possible to rid your teeth of the staining from eating and drinking. Teeth whitening in Cincinnati is convenient, effective and affordable when you see Dr. Khetarpal. Whether you choose one teeth whitening treatment alternative or the other depends on how quickly you wish to see results and the relative costs; do-it-yourself kits usually yield results in a couple of weeks, in our dental office you can see results within fifteen or twenty minutes. It may be necessary to combine both types of treatment to address some staining and produce the optimum result.Learn more on teeth whitening
Implant placement has become the standard of care when it comes to replacing teeth. Implant fixtures are often used as an alternative to the less stable, more short-term restoration with a conventional fixed bridge or conventional denture. Implants have two components: The implant fixture (screw) which integrates with the bone like a root, and the abutment to which the replacement tooth restoration is attached. If conditions are ideal the dentist or oral surgeon may be able to place both the fixture and abutment in a single procedure. After a three- to six-month period of integration the final dental restoration will be attached to the abutment.Learn more on dental implants
Smile Makeover Design
Maintaining your teeth is a very prudent investment that pays dividends for a lifetime. Studies have shown that the way a person’s smile looks influences their self-esteem and how they are perceived by others. An otherwise attractive smile can be compromised by decaying and/or missing teeth. Replacing or repairing teeth also protects the remaining teeth from decay and failure. If one’s smile is compromised by decaying or missing teeth, those areas should be addressed. We can provide many different treatment options to produce the desired smile.Learn more on smile makeovers
To treat worn enamel, and small chips and cracks, dentists will often recommend dental veneers. The porcelain or composite resin material used to make dental veneers provide a natural-looking restoration. Each patient will have a veneer specially constructed for them. Once the affected tooth has been ground down and prepared, the veneer is placed.Learn more on cosmetic veneers
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a normal method of treatment for decayed or fractured teeth. If it is determined that the patient is an ideal candidate for root canal treatment, the treatment may take one or two appointments depending on the extent of the damage. Some Colerain-area general dentists do perform root canals, but many will refer their more challenging patients to an endodontist (root canal specialist). Advances in technology make it possible for this type of treatment to be carried out under a surgical microscope to allow better visualization and identification of affected canals requiring treatment. There are cases where a tooth cannot be salvaged and is recommended for extraction.Learn more on root canal treatments
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Most teenagers and young adults undergo the extraction of their wisdom teeth. Not everyone will require their wisdom teeth extracted. But, the vast majority of patients will experience some repercussion from the presence of the wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth, if left in place, may affect the effectiveness of a patient’s bite, and can cause temporomandibular joint issues and headaches. Wisdom teeth in the lower jaw are often more difficult to remove than those in the upper jaw. Wisdom teeth extraction is carried out in the dental office under IV sedation. Those patients with heart or metabolic disorders (eg: diabetes) may be booked in the hospital for the removal under a general anesthetic.Learn more on wisdom teeth extraction
If you are looking to replace several missing teeth, dentures may provide the best solution. Depending on how many teeth are being replaced in one location, a patient may have a complete denture, partial denture or overdenture fabricated. Any one of these restorations may be supported by the remaining gum (soft tissue) or tooth material, or by implant fixtures. Dentures are usually made out of a polymer material that is more durable than plastic. Gum irritation and erosion of the underlying jawbone may occur if dentures are not looked after.Learn more on dentures
Crowns are made from usually two materials: Porcelain only or porcelain surrounding a metal core. The type of teeth being restored will establish which materials are used to restore them. Molars will normally need a porcelain-to-metal-based crown, whereas teeth along the smile line would do well with all-porcelain. For a crown to be placed the affected tooth will need to be ground down and root canal. The overall treatment usually takes two visits to your Cincinnati-area dental practitioner.Learn more on crowns
