Cosmetic dentistry can help you get a more radiant smile.

Whether you have a discolored tooth or a smile that has yellowed over the years, our Annapolis, MD, family dentists Drs. John and Michael Ruland offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry options that can turn your dull, stained smile into something radiant. Here are the top three cosmetic treatments that can remove or hide dental stains,

Dental Bonding

Stains are a fairly common dental problem. Everything from foods we eat to medications we take to smoking can lead to brown and yellow stains. If you have a small discoloration in a tooth, it may not be reason enough to get whitening. In this case, bonding may be the best solution for hiding minor stains.

With bonding, a tooth-colored resin is applied to the tooth, where it will fully cover the stain. Bonding resin is matched to the color of your tooth before it is placed. Then the resin is molded and hardened directly to the tooth. Bonding is completely non-invasive and can be performed in just a single dental visit.

Teeth Whitening

One of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments today, professional teeth whitening helps adults get brilliant, stain-free smiles in as little as one session. In-office whitening removes stubborn stains that regular brushing and routine dental cleanings can’t. Along with breaking up tough surface stains, it can also lighten the actual color of your teeth. In less than one hour we could get your smile up to eight shades whiter.

Dental Veneers

Sometime stains may not respond as effectively to whitening treatment. If you are dealing with severe, dark internal stains that affect one or more teeth, then dental veneers may be the ideal cosmetic dentistry to fit your needs. Our Annapolis, MD, dental team creates custom veneers, which are thin porcelain layers that are bonded to the front of your teeth to hide common imperfections while also improving the overall length and shape of your smile. If stains are too widespread for bonding and too stubborn for whitening, veneers could easily give you a smile that is as white as you want.
