What is cosmetic dentistry? 
Cosmetic dentistry procedures focus more on the aesthetics of your teeth than their functionality. There are many cosmetic dentistry procedures with a variety of end results. Depending on your preferences, your cosmetic procedure can address the color, size, shape, or alignment of your teeth or even replace missing teeth. Dentists often use cosmetic dentistry procedures in conjunction with each other or other restorative dental procedures to correct issues with the smile.

Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry in Hanover, MD

  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a common procedure to significantly lift the color of the teeth in one hour-long sitting.
  • Porcelain Dental Restorations: Porcelain closely resembles natural tooth enamel. Dental laboratories craft dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures from this versatile medium.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants replace a missing tooth permanently and securely. The implant lies within the jawbone under the gap and is made to last a lifetime.
  • Dental Bonding and Contouring: Dental bonding and contouring most often help repair chipped teeth. Dentists mold the bonding materials directly onto the tooth then use dental contouring techniques to sculpt it into the right shape to fit seamlessly into your smile.

Can cosmetic dentistry help me? 
A good candidate for cosmetic dentistry is in good oral health and free from teeth decay or gum disease. Your dentist will treat teeth with these issues prior to performing any cosmetic procedures. Additionally, a good cosmetic dentistry candidate has a strong at-home oral care routine to keep both their teeth and any cosmetic dental work healthy and clean between their biannual dental examinations and cleanings.
