Here are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments we offer:
This is the most popular cosmetic treatment that our Annapolis, MD, dentists perform. After all, it is the most effective way to get a visibly whiter smile in a short period of time! Those who are dealing with dull, yellowing smiles due to foods, drinks, or aging can benefit the most from professional teeth whitening. In-office whitening can remove stubborn stains and get your smile several shades whiter in anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.
Patients dealing with more minimal imperfections such as a small discoloration or tiny chips in a tooth may want to consider dental bonding, which is the simplest and least expensive cosmetic treatment available. Bonding can even be performed during your next routine checkup!
Treatment involves using tooth-colored resin to cover stains and hide small imperfections such as chips, cracks, and gaps between your teeth. If you have one tooth that throws the rest of your smile out of whack, then bonding may be the right option for you.
These thin porcelain shells are custom-made to cover the front of your teeth. They are bonded to your teeth with dental resin and are great for patients looking to hide a variety of imperfections including:
- Misshapen teeth
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps between teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
Veneers can even improve sensitive teeth by providing a durable outer barrier to protect them. Veneers can alter the overall shape, color, and size of your teeth. In some cases, they can even improve the alignment of your smile, foregoing the need for braces.
