Cosmetic Dentistry in Silver Spring: What Are Your Options?
When it comes to addressing your goals with cosmetic dental care, treatment planning plays an important role. Dr. Dechter or Dr. Moy will meet with you to create a personalized cosmetic treatment plan. We will base it on your oral health condition and goals. As part of your dental exam and evaluation, we will look for any underlying problems that could impact the longevity of your results. It is important that we perform any cosmetic treatments on a healthy and stable foundation.
We have treatment options for changing the color, shape, and overall appearance of your smile. After meeting with you, our cosmetic dentist will suggest the best options for meeting your expectations. The following are cosmetic dental treatments that we can provide to enhance your smile.
Professional teeth whitening at our dental office will brighten and restore the natural color of your teeth in just one or two dental visits. If you’re looking for an increase in confidence, or just a brighter smile, professional teeth whitening could be a great option for you. This relatively affordable cosmetic procedure can help lighten discoloration and remove surface stains without causing discomfort or damage. It is important to note that teeth whitening procedures will not change the color of fillings or crowns.
We provide professional in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to brighten our patient’s smiles. Each method of professional teeth whitening treatment that we offer is different, but each comes with brilliant results. Professionally whitening teeth leads to more effective results compared to store-bought toothpaste, strips, and whitening gel. To learn more about our teeth whitening treatments, see Tooth whitening.
Dental bonding can close the gap between two front teeth, or cover deep stains that teeth whitening can’t fix. Like dental veneers, tooth bonding addresses chips, cracks, and other injuries or inconsistencies in the dental structure as well. We will also color-match the dental bonding composite resin to natural teeth, similar to how we match tooth-colored fillings. With tooth bonding, our patients can fix their tooth imperfections with results that blend in seamlessly. To learn about our dental bonding procedure, see tooth bonding.
Porcelain veneers can cover misshapen, discolored, or damaged teeth, and reshape uneven teeth. Crafted from porcelain ceramic, our veneers are thin shells that cover the front of the tooth enamel. Veneers are permanent restorations for patients with injured or stained teeth. In addition, dental veneers are stain-resistant and can keep your smile bright for years to come.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to improve the look of your smile. Either porcelain or composite material, we customize them to fit over your existing front teeth, covering up any discoloration, chips, and gaps. We can even use them to reshape a misshapen tooth. Veneers provide a more conservative alternative to crowns and require minimal removal of tooth enamel. Despite their thin appearance, they are very strong and often last for many years with proper care. To learn about your veneer options, see Porcelain veneers.
Clear aligners are an innovative method for teeth straightening that uses customized plastic trays to gradually and gently shift your teeth into place over time. The aligners are discreet and comfortable unlike traditional braces, making them a popular choice amongst teens and adults.
The best part about clear aligners is that you can remove them when it’s time to brush and floss, and even during meals, so you don’t have to compromise on routine oral hygiene as you would with metal brackets. Clear aligners are best for mild to moderate crooked teeth issues. To learn more about our clear aligner options, see Clear aligners.
Tooth crowns are porcelain ceramic caps that we can provide to cover dental implants, tooth damage, and deep tooth stains. Dental crowns are durable and look just like natural teeth. This is because we can color-match them to blend in with your natural tooth enamel. We can provide you with same-day dental crowns using CEREC technology in our Silver Spring dentist office. To learn more about our same-day crowns services, see Dental crowns.
Although considered a restorative dental procedure, the placement of dental implants still improves your smile cosmetically. Fill in the spaces that missing teeth leave behind with this dental restoration. Dental implants are a great investment for people looking to maintain their overall oral health and facial structure. The success rate of dental implants is incredibly high and once they fully integrate in your jaw bone, you cannot distinguish them from your healthy natural teeth.
Patients can enjoy their perfect fitting smile that looks and feels natural without any more hassle of needing specialized cleaning or replacement every few years like with dentures. The restoration process allows for a permanent improvement in overall look and feel that lasts up to two decades with proper oral hygiene care. Investing in dental implants allows patients to regain confidence in their overall appearance knowing that they have a well-functioning, carefree smile. To learn about our dental implant services, see Dental implants.
Your cosmetic treatment plan includes one or several of these cosmetic treatments. It may take a single dental visit or several visits to get the smile that you love. During your consultation, we will present all options, explain the costs, and what to expect. We will also answer all your questions so you can make an informed choice about your dental care.
