Cosmetic Dentistry: What to Expect
Concern for our patients is our top priority. We strive to develop long lasting relationships with our patients and become true partners in their healthcare. Comprehensive consultations are essential for our dentists to understand your specific needs and goals. These consultations are an opportunity for the dentist to listen to your concerns, evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums and present you with options that can help you achieve the smile you want.
Choosing the Best Cosmetic Dentist
It is important to know that any dentist can call him or herself a cosmetic dentist. When considering a dentist for cosmetic procedures, it is important to look at their credentials as well as examples of their work. Our dentists have completed thousands of hours in post graduate training, focused in the area of cosmetic and restorative dentistry.

Smile Solutions for Crooked Teeth
Many patients are unhappy with the appearance of their smile because they have misaligned teeth. They may be crooked, or they may be poorly spaced, uneven in length or asymmetrical. Depending on your specific concerns, there may be a number of approaches to correcting your smile:
We offer Invisalign® invisible braces for people with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. A series of clear aligners are worn over several weeks or months to gently reposition your teeth. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible and removable for the most discreet and comfortable treatment. Learn More
In some cases, the cosmetic dentist may use a bio-compatible, tooth colored resin to reshape teeth that are misaligned or asymmetrical. Tooth bonding is an affordable option and great for children or teens. Learn More
Porcelain veneers are a great option for adults who want to straighten their smile without braces. These thin ceramic shells are very natural looking and extremely durable. Learn More
Like veneers, dental crowns are used to cover teeth that are misaligned, asymmetrical or uneven in appearance. In smile makeover procedures, these restorations are generally made of porcelain or ceramic for a highly aesthetic look. Learn More
Smile Solutions for Discolored Teeth
When you ask most people what they want to change about their smile, they'll say they'd like it to be whiter. There are many options for improving the appearance of stained, dark or discolored teeth. Our cosmetic dentists also offer options for patients who have white spots on teeth, which often appear in patients who've worn traditional metal braces.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to brighten your smile. In our Annapolis dental office, we offer several tooth whitening options including: Zoom in-office whitening and custom made, take-home bleaching trays. Learn More
In some cases, tooth bonding may be the best way to improve the appearance of one or two teeth that are dark or discolored. The cosmetic dentist will apply a bio-compatible tooth colored resin directly to the tooth to match the color of neighboring teeth. Learn More
If you have teeth that are discolored because of tetracycline or have teeth with stains that are resistant to bleaching, our dentists may recommend porcelain veneers. These are thin shells of porcelain that are applied to the front and sides of teeth. Learn More
Smile Solutions for Worn Teeth
Over time, teeth will wear and become dull or have small chips. Tooth grinding and clenching can make tooth wear worse. Our dentists offer a number of treatment options for patients with worn, chipped or broken teeth, including:
Tooth bonding is an affordable treatment that can be performed in a single office visit. The cosmetic dentist will apply a tooth colored resin directly to the tooth to cover a chip or break for a virtually indistinguishable restoration. Learn More
If you have significant tooth wear or chipped teeth, the dentist may suggest porcelain veneers, which are a longer lasting and more stable restoration compared to tooth bonding. Learn More
A dental crown reinforces and adds strength to teeth that are worn, chipped or broken. Sometimes called "tooth caps", these restorations are usually made of tooth colored materials like porcelain. Learn More
