The family of dental practices is like a mighty oak with many branches along a central trunk. You can visualize it this way because every dental specialist must first train in general dentistry, earning a dental degree before focusing on a specific discipline.

However, exceptionally skilled dentists, like those at Naylors Court Dental Partners, commit themselves to gaining new expertise in the latest techniques that help teeth look and function their best without limiting themselves to one. This is why we can offer patients both cosmetic dental services along with orthodontics. So, while these two types of dentistry are intended to improve your smile, they go about it differently.

How Cosmetic Dental Treatments Enhance Teeth

To select an excellent cosmetic dentist near me in Pikesville, MD, you want a team of dental professionals with years of experience in smile solutions. The distinguishing feature of cosmetic dentistry is that it works with teeth surfaces rather than the underlying structure. This is because so many treatments cover and conceal teeth imperfections.

Here are some examples of our cosmetic dental services:

  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental crowns
  • Professional teeth whitening
  • Full smile makeovers

The advantage of these services is that we help you choose which option will work best for your needs and budget.

Orthodontic Treatments Align Smiles by Moving Teeth

When your teeth, jaw, and bite alignments don’t quite line up, surface treatments won’t do the job. This is when you turn to orthodontic treatments, and our dentists prefer more modern options like Invisalign ® clear aligner trays. Rather than using clunky metal brackets and wires to move your teeth, clear aligners manipulate them through a progressive series of trays, each one gently repositioning each tooth into its newly planned positions.

Often orthodontic and cosmetic dental treatments may be combined to provide you with an aligned smile that is bright, clean, and impressive.
