In a perfect world, we'd all be born with perfect, indestructible teeth and gums. Playing contact sports, biting down on hard candy and cosmetic dentistrydrinking coffee, red wine and tea to the heart's delight would have no effect on our naturally pearly white, perfectly straight teeth. But in the real world, teeth are vulnerable to chipping, cracking, staining and decay from any number of dietary, genetic and lifestyle factors.

But that doesn't mean that humans are destined to a life of damaged, subpar teeth short of winning some elusive genetic lottery. The dentists at Eldersburg Dental Group in Eldersburg, MD, offer a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures designed to make even the most problematic teeth look and feel as beautiful and healthy as possible.

A New Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry in Eldersburg, MD

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, cosmetic dental enhancements and restorations don't just help to recreate a smile, they also help to recreate self-esteem. From tooth stains and spacing to missing teeth, a damaged smile can have a negative effect on emotional wellbeing and quality of life, as well as on oral health. According to studies, feeling self-conscious and living with bad teeth can hinder job prospects, and even limit social engagements and romantic opportunities.

Many cosmetic dentistry treatments offer effective and minimally invasive solutions for the most common dental problems, including:

  • Teeth stains and discolorations
  • Broken, cracked and chipped teeth
  • Spacing and alignment problems

Professional teeth whitening treatments can significantly and uniformly brighten teeth stained by common culprits like coffee, tea, red wine, dark berries and sauces, and smoking. Although over the counter products like toothpastes and gels can offer some benefit, only a dentist can offer true results. Some stains (usually gray/brown in color) result from trauma or certain medications and require treatment with cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers).

Dental implants consist of a small, biocompatible titanium screw that replaces the root of the missing tooth and a cosmetic crown attached to the implant for a secure and permanent tooth replacement.

Invisalign clear aligner trays are a discreet and non-invasive alternative to metallic braces. Made of removable clear plastic trays, Invisalign is a good orthodontic alternative for adults who need orthodontic treatment but do not wish to wear braces.
