Would you like your Eldersburg, MD, dentist to fix your smile?

It's understandable that your smile is important for first impressions, especially for job interviews, dates, or weddings. This is why your Smiledentist offers tooth contouring and reshaping for patients. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can save you plenty of time, money and a more confident smile.

Here are some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures your dentist provides:

  • Bonding: This is when your dentist in Eldersburg applies a composite resin on to your chipped or cracked tooth, contours the resin so it matches your other intact teeth, then solidifies the resin using a curing light. The bonded tooth will blend in with the rest of your teeth, giving you a smile you don't have to be embarrassed.
     
  • Veneers: These are ultra-thing porcelain shells that are installed to the surface of your teeth. They have color stability, which means they are resistant to staining and fix dental issues like, uneven spacing, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped, or discolored teeth.
     
  • Whitening and bleaching: Teeth naturally become darker as we age, with take-home kits to whiten teeth or in-office teeth whitening treatment, your teeth become several shades lighter. Just be sure to stay away from eating certain foods, like blueberries, smoking, chewing tobacco, and drinking too much coffee and tea.
     
  • Implants: They are state-of-the-art installations that fix dental gaps and re-invent your smile. The process of getting a dental implant is simple and only requires local anesthesia. Your dentist removes any remnants of the old tooth, drills into the jawbone, inserts a titanium post, which is biocompatible so your body will not reject it, then you wait for about six months for osseointegration to occur, the implant fusing to your jawbone. Then an abutment and a crown matching your teeth are placed to complete the procedure.

If you have any questions or concerns about cosmetic dentistry, be sure to contact your Eldersburg, MD, dentist today!
