Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

We offer several cosmetic dental procedures for improving the appearance of your smile. For instance, options are available for repairing chipped or cracked teeth, as well as whitening stained, discolored, or dull teeth. There are even procedures for transforming the look of crooked or misshaped teeth. Cosmetic dentistry procedures at our office in Annapolis, MD, include:

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: Composite white dental fillings that blend in with the natural teeth, making them a discreet option for restoring teeth affected by decay.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Thin covers permanently bonded to the front of teeth to conceal cosmetic issues and give teeth a flawless new look.
  • Cosmetic Tooth Bonding: A method for repairing teeth that are chipped or cracked with a tooth-colored composite resin material that permanently bonds to the tooth once dry.
  • Tooth Contouring or Reshaping: An option for giving problem teeth a more pleasing look or shape. Contouring can improve the appearance of teeth that are oddly shaped, chipped, too pointy, or slightly smaller or larger than the surrounding teeth.
  • Teeth Whitening: A treatment for brightening a dull smile, whitening teeth, and lifting away certain stains and discolorations.
