Serving the Dayton and Springfield, Ohio areas, Dr. Ian M. Rae's practice features porcelain veneers and teeth whitening, both of which dramatically improve the appearance of his patients' smiles. Porcelain veneers are ideal if you have cracked, crooked, or chipped teeth, while teeth whitening can give you a bright, luminescent smile. Contact our cosmetic dentist today to schedule an appointment with us. Whether you have minor imperfections or major cosmetic flaws, your teeth can be whiter, straighter, and more attractive with a cosmetic treatment plan designed and implemented by top Ohio dentist Dr. Ian M. Rae, D.M.D.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an innovative treatment for correcting the appearance of your teeth. Many cosmetic imperfections, such as cracked, chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth, can be corrected with porcelain veneers placed by Dr. Rae at his office in the Dayton and Springfield, Ohio area. Often, a full mouth restoration includes treatment with porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front surface of teeth and remain permanently fixed, leaving you with an attractive, natural-looking smile. Before placing porcelain veneers, Dr. Rae buffs your teeth, removing a micro-thin layer of enamel. Next, he makes a mold of your teeth so that your porcelain veneers fit perfectly over your natural teeth. Then Dr. Rae places the veneers, making sure their fit and color are aesthetically pleasing. Lastly, using a specialized light, Dr. Rae hardens the adhesive, permanently fixing your new porcelain veneers.

One of the most attractive features of porcelain veneers is that they look completely natural. The porcelain material in porcelain veneers is much like the enamel of your teeth. Since porcelain is translucent, it allows light to be absorbed and then reflected off of the dentin of your natural teeth. It is this luminescent effect that gives porcelain veneers their natural appearance. With porcelain veneers placed by Dr. Rae, you can have straight, white, uniform teeth that look like healthy and natural.

ZOOM!© Teeth Whitening

Cosmetic teeth whitening is one of the most popular and minimally invasive ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Advances in bleaching and laser technology make it possible for you to lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in just one office visit. At our office in the Dayton and Springfield, Ohio area, we use ZOOM!© teeth-whitening products that deliver outstanding results quickly, conveniently, and safely.

ZOOM!© In-Office Teeth Whitening Treatment

ZOOM!© in-office teeth-whitening treatment is ideal for those who would like to see teeth-whitening results immediately after treatment. In one 45-minute session at our office, Dr. Rae and Dr. Luna can dramatically whiten your teeth. After preparing your mouth so that only your teeth are exposed, Dr. Rae and Dr. Luna applie the special ZOOM!© gel to your teeth. When exposed to the penetrating ZOOM!© light, the gel breaks up stains and discolorations on your teeth, leaving them dramatically whiter.

ZOOM!© Take-Home Teeth Whitening Treatment

Patients can choose to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own homes with ZOOM!® take-home teeth-whitening trays. With the ZOOM!© take-home whitening trays, customized for you by Dr. Rae and Dr. Luna, you can whiten your teeth whenever and wherever is most convenient for you. Many of our Dayton and Springfield, Ohio patients choose to wear their teeth-whitening trays twice a day for one half hour to an hour. Others wear their teeth whitening trays at night while they sleep. Either way, with take-home teeth-whitening treatments, you are able to control the teeth-whitening process to achieve the shade you desire.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a convenient and affordable solution for many cosmetic imperfections, including chipped and cracked teeth, and teeth with unattractive metal fillings. The advanced dental material (composite resin) used in dental bonding can be closely matched to your teeth's natural color, providing not only repair of structural tooth damage, but also natural-looking results.

Within a single office visit, most types of cosmetic flaws can be corrected with dental bonding. After Dr. Rae selects the resin that most closely matches the color of your teeth, he roughens the targeted tooth to prepare it for the application of the resin. He applies, shapes, and then hardens the resin with a specialized light. Lastly, Dr. Rae buffs and polishes the tooth to give it a natural appearance. The resin is long lasting, provides protection against further cracks and breaks, and it corrects the appearance of your teeth so you can have an aesthetically pleasing smile.

Total Smile Makeover

If you have complex aesthetic imperfections, Dr. Rae can design a total smile makeover for you that completely transforms the appearance of your teeth. By combining treatments such as porcelain veneers and tooth-colored fillings or teeth whitening and dental bonding, your teeth can look straight, healthy, and naturally white.

For patients with both cosmetic and restorative issues, Dr. Rae may suggest a full mouth restoration that can include dental implants, crowns, or bridges, in addition to cosmetic treatment. If you think you are a candidate for a total smile makeover or a full mouth restoration, contact our cosmetic dentist to arrange a consultation.

Cosmetic Computer Imaging

Our practice offers cosmetic computer imaging so that you can preview the transformations that porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and our other cosmetic treatments can provide.

With computer imaging technology, we take a digital photograph of your smile and then manipulate the image to simulate the results of cosmetic treatment. As you describe your ideal smile to Dr. Rae, he alters your photo to give you a realistic idea of what can be done to improve your smile's appearance. Through dialogue with Dr. Rae and viewing various images, you take an active role in designing your new look so that you feel confident with your treatment choices.
