Cosmetic Dentistry

Do you love the smile you see when you look in the mirror? For many adult patients, this isn’t the case because of countless imperfections that affect teeth over time. If you find yourself constantly pointing out these flaws, it might be time to pursue cosmetic dentistry with the help of Dr. Maria Van Huffel. Our team offers several treatment options that create truly stunning results. If you’re ready to make a change, contact our Gahanna, OH location today and schedule a cosmetic consultation! We love seeing patients from Westerville, Pataskala, and beyond.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

A cavity is one of the most common dental problems a patient faces. Thankfully, having a filling placed to correct damage is a fast and simple procedure. Dr. Van Huffel only offers tooth-colored fillings for increased health and aesthetic benefits. Made of quality composite resin, these fillings offer patients valuable benefits compared to traditional amalgam material. In addition to being virtually seamless in natural structure, they’re also more conservatively placed and less sensitive to uncomfortable changes in temperature.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made layers of dental porcelain designed to fit over existing teeth. By closely mimicking their natural appearance, our team uses them to erase several dental flaws at once for a more convenient and impressive patient experience. Our office has two veneer options – the traditional solution requires a small amount of enamel removal, while minimum prep veneers can be placed as is and removed with no permanent consequences. Dr. Van Huffel works with you to determine which choice is better for your unique circumstances and preferences.

All-Ceramic Restorations

Older patients may be familiar with common silver and gold-colored restorations. While these materials were effective in restoring oral strength and function to a patient’s smile, their noticeable appearance could damage self-esteem for years to come. Here in Gahanna, our team strives to provide quality results that exceed expectations. That’s why we primarily offer all-ceramic restorations as the best of both worlds. These materials are similar to natural teeth in look and feel, providing increased biocompatibility, comfort, and durability in addition to aesthetic value.

Teeth Whitening

Do you love your smile but hate the color of your teeth? Have they naturally become yellowish and discolored as you’ve gotten older? Teeth-whitening is an easy way to refresh your smile and give it a bright, new look. A pearly white smile will never go out of style, so come see us about your whitening options today.
