Our Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments in Columbia, MD

Teeth Whitening

While most of us know that things like coffee, tea, and tobacco can stain our teeth, discoloration also occurs naturally over time. Despite the fact that discoloration is very common, some people are embarrassed of having slightly discolored teeth. However, if you’d like to fix this problem and give yourself the whitest smile possible, we recommend our teeth whitening procedure. Our Columbia, MD office uses specialized teeth whitening gel that removes the stains on your teeth and restores them to a bright, white appearance.

Composite Bonding

Bonding uses a composite resin to fill in any chips, gaps, or cosmetic imperfections in your teeth. This resin will match the color of your teeth and it will be sculpted into the exact shape needed to make your tooth look whole and natural again. This is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures due to its fast treatment time and painless process.

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain layers that are applied to the front of your teeth. These can be used to cover up a variety of cosmetic issues, including discoloration, poor tooth shape, gaps, or chips. The coloration and texture used for the porcelain will make it look like it’s just a part of your natural tooth. In order for the veneer to fit comfortably, a small amount of enamel will need to be shaved off to make room for the veneer. In as few as two visits, the veneer will be applied and your smile will look better than ever!

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Crowns are customized ‘caps’ that are placed over your existing (and damaged) teeth in order to restore your tooth’s size, shape, function, and appearance. Because they cover the tooth completely, they’re perfect for fixing just about any cosmetic issue.
 
Bridges are designed to cover gaps that are caused by missing teeth. They will usually include two crowns that cover up the teeth that are on each side of the gap and a replacement tooth that’s attached to the crowns to bridge the gap where the missing tooth is. The bridge is made of porcelain and it can be customized to match the color and size of your teeth, ensuring that your new smile will look completely natural.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is rooted into your jaw, giving you a more permanent fix when you’re looking to replace missing teeth. It’s designed to not only look like a natural tooth, but act and function like one as well. You’ll be able to eat and clean it in the exact same way you would one of your natural teeth. Dental implants require healthy oral tissue and a strong jawbone to be properly supported so it’s important for you to meet with our treatment coordinator to see if you’re a candidate.
