Cosmetic dentistry is not just about creating a more beautiful smile but also supports improving your dental health. Our cosmetic dental services, from Invisalign to dental bonding, porcelain veneers to teeth whitening treatment, encourage patients to maintain their oral health. For example, when patients brighten their smile with a teeth whitening treatment, they are more likely to maintain their results with an excellent oral hygiene routine. During Invisalign treatment, the clear Invisalign aligners straighten the patient’s crooked teeth over time. Straightening teeth makes brushing and flossing easier for our patients. As a result, a brighter, straighter smile is easier to care for in the long run.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Marriottsville, MD
Our cosmetic dental services address problems like discolored, crooked, and injured teeth:
As an orthodontic alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign provides efficient treatment for patients with crooked or misaligned teeth. Invisalign uses a series of discreet aligners that gradually straighten the smile. In addition, patients can eat without dietary restrictions because Invisalign aligners are removable. Invisalign aligners also make it easier for patients to clean their smiles.
Dental veneers are thin shells that cover the front of individual teeth. Our dental veneers are porcelain ceramic, a highly reflective material that we can color-match to the shade of natural tooth enamel. Patients can receive their veneers in just two visits. We design the custom veneers to fit each tooth exactly. We bond single veneers to each tooth and then polish them for a natural shine.
Tooth bonding treatment uses a biocompatible resin material to address dental injuries and tooth discoloration. We sculpt and mold the malleable resin into the shape of a natural tooth. Compared to other cosmetic options like veneers, bonding is more economical. In addition, dental bonding covers tooth discoloration and injuries such as cracks and chips in teeth.
Our professional teeth whitening treatment can provide impressive results. In addition, we offer take-home treatments customized to each patient. A take-home whitening kit consists of custom trays and gel that penetrates the tooth enamel. We take dental impressions to create custom whitening trays to easily deliver the whitening gel to each tooth.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
Learn more about your cosmetic options with answers to these common questions:
Do I need dental veneers or tooth bonding treatment?
Typically, tooth bonding benefits patients with more minor dental injuries, including chips or cracks in the tooth enamel. Veneers may address all teeth in the smile line or those that show when you fully smile. Although dental bonding may have a lower cost than dental veneers, veneers are best for long-lasting cosmetic treatment.
How long is Invisalign treatment?
Compared to metal braces, Invisalign treatment takes less time. The average treatment time for Invisalign is 6 to 18 months. Of course, every patient is different, which means that the length of treatment will vary from patient to patient. However, patients who clean and care for their aligners are more likely to complete their treatment on time.
What are the benefits of take-home whitening treatment?
Unlike store-bought whitening gels, strips, or toothpaste, our take-home whitening treatment can offer convenience and effective results. Patients can comfortably whiten their teeth from the comfort of their own homes. We also customize treatment to each patient. For example, patients with sensitive teeth can receive whitening treatment with minimal sensitivity.
