At Naylors Court Dental Partners, we understand when patients want to take their smiles to the next level. We offer a variety of cosmetic dental options in Pikesville, MD to help them along, and we can typically find options that fit most lifestyles and household budgets.

Children's Dentistry

young baby sitting & smiling holding toothbrush I children's dentistry pikesville MDDid you know that baby teeth begin growing in at about six months of age, but most children in the U.S. don’t visit a dentist until they’re two years old? The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that infants see a dentist within six months of the first tooth erupting. A children’s dentist in Pikesville can help foster a lifelong positive attitude towards oral care and dental visits.

Are there any misconceptions?                                          

There are many misconceptions about the best time to start dental visits. For example, parents may think their child doesn’t need to see a dentist until permanent teeth come in or until their child has lots of teeth.

But the truth is that healthy baby teeth (called primary teeth) lead to healthy permanent teeth. Primary teeth help preserve the space for permanent teeth, aid in proper chewing, and even improve speech development.

What about anxiety?

Many children may feel anxious about the loud sounds and pointy equipment at dental visits. A children’s dentist in Pikeville understands that waiting until a child is older may result in more anxiety about dental visits. Introducing oral care when children are very young can relieve feelings of uncertainty later. For these reasons, you should start dentist visits within six months of the first tooth erupting. Call today if you have any further questions. 

Cosmetic Bonding and Recontouring

Image of dentist inspecting a patient's teethTooth bonding is an excellent procedure for repairing a tooth that has become discolored or damaged. Made out of the same material as a tooth-colored filling, the plastic resin used will blend in seamlessly with your natural tooth color.

Are there any preventative steps?

With proper care, you can expect composite bonding to last for up to a decade. Although the composite material is strong, keep in mind that it is not as strong as your tooth enamel. To help extend the life your tooth bonding, it’s crucial that you avoid chewing on hard candy, ice cubes, and other substances that can cause cracks in the bonding material. Avoid such habits as biting your nails and chewing on pen caps as these can also weaken the bonding material.

What else should I avoid following the procedure?

Because the bonding material is subject to staining—particularly in the days following the procedure—it’s best to avoid coffee, tea, and tobacco products right after the bonding material is applied.

As always, brush and floss your teeth regularly at home, and see your dentist twice each year for checkups and cleanings to protect your oral health.

Don't hesitate to contact us!

For more information on dental bondings from your Pikesville dentist, call Naylors Court Dental Partners today. We are happy to answer any questions you might have!

You take excellent care of your teeth but are unhappy with the appearance of your smile. Maybe you have a tooth that is discolored, misshapen, or that overlaps another tooth. Your dentist in Pikesville wants you to love your smile and would be happy to speak to you about dental bonding or recontouring. These are noninvasive and typically inexpensive ways to upgrade your smile.

In some cases, patients opt for both treatments depending on the aesthetic issue.

Dental bonding means your dentist uses a composite resin material to reshape your tooth or conceal discoloration or cosmetic damage like chips or shape issues. In this process, your dentist is adding material to your tooth—the same material used in tooth-colored fillings.

In dental recontouring, your dentist removes negligible dental material to reshape a tooth, correct an overlap, or buff out a cosmetic chip. Your dentist can also use recontouring to correct pointy or long teeth, giving you a more symmetrical smile.  

So, when you think about dental bonding, consider that your dentist is adding material to a tooth or teeth. When you think about recontouring, consider that your dentist is removing material.

Of course, your dentist can use both options to change the appearance of a tooth or teeth as well.

Schedule your tooth bonding and recontouring consultation today.

Crowns and Bridges

crowns pikesville mdCrowns Made Custom for You

Crowns are made by taking an impression of the tooth after it has been shaped for the crown.  This impression is sent to the dental laboratory to make the crown.  While the crown is being fabricated, a temporary crown is placed to protect the tooth. In addition to this process, we also remove any decayed part of your tooth, replacing it will a filling. Your customized, permanent crown is designed to look natural and cohesive with the rest of your smile. 

Contact Us

If you have further questions about crowns, please don't hesitate to call us at Naylors Court Dental Partners, today!

dental crowns owings millsRepair Broken or Damaged Teeth

Crowns can be necessary for many conditions.  Often times teeth crack or break as a result of large fillings, tooth decay, grinding your teeth, or a misaligned bite.  When the tooth structure has been compromised, a crown is often prescribed to protect the tooth from further breakage.  The crown covers the entire outside of the tooth, providing a strong, bracing action to support the underlying tooth.

Crowns are able to improve one's oral health as well as the aesthetic of one's smile. For more information on crowns or to book an appointment, call our Pikesville dental office today.

Our team will choose a shape and color for your crown that matches your teeth, providing you with a natural looking tooth.  In some instances, patients may choose to whiten their teeth prior to fabrication of the crown.  This allows us to match the crown to their new whitened tooth color, giving them a natural aesthetic smile.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a metal post inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of a tooth.  It is often the most ideal option for replacing teeth, as they provide the most natural tooth replacement option available. In addition to looking natural, dental implants are strong and have the same look and feel of your real teeth. They also are very safe, helping to prevent further tooth loss.

Emergency Dentistry

At Naylor’s Court Dental, we are here to treat your dental emergencies quickly. If you have a dental emergency in Pikesville, MD, or suspect you might have one, contact our dental office as soon as possible.

A dental emergency can occur when you least expect and may include:

  • Toothache or tooth sensitivity
  • Jaw pain or swelling
  • Tooth knocked out
  • Tooth broken or loosened
  • Damaged restoration
  • Bleeding
  • Object lodged in gums or between teeth

If your oral health symptoms do not fit the above criteria, contact our team regardless. It is impossible to list every oral health scenario that could threaten your dental health, but our team can advise you over the phone. And we will never leave you in pain.

Typically, we treat dental emergencies on the same day or as soon as possible. Your emergency visit is designed to relieve pain, stabilize your situation, and—in some cases—schedule additional treatment once you’ve found relief under our care.

Treatments may include:

  • Extraction
  • Root canal therapy
  • Dental crown
  • Treatment plan

If you have a dental emergency, or suspect you might, contact your emergency dentist in Pikesville as soon as possible. We are here to help you through your dental emergency.

Dental emergencies tend to crop up when you least expect—on the eve of a family vacation or the day before a big job interview.

Your emergency dentist in Pikesville understands how these situations can derail your plans and rob you of your sleep. For these reasons, we offer emergency dental appointments, and it is always our goal to see you as soon as possible.

Typically, we see patients with excruciating toothaches and swelling due to root infections that require root canal therapy, but there are all kinds of dental emergencies out there. Let’s look at these complications and talk about prevention.

Typical dental emergencies besides toothaches include:

  • Tooth or restoration knocked out
  • Tooth or restoration broken
  • Soft tissue trauma

The best way to prevent infections and decay—the leading cause of dental emergencies—is to visit your dentist regularly for dental exams and teeth cleanings. It is also crucial to brush and floss twice daily at home.

If you suffer from bruxism—grinding and clenching your teeth while sleeping—it’s important to wear a nightguard at night. If you play sports, be sure to wear the proper face gear and mouthguard.

The above tips can help you avoid many types of dental emergencies.

Gum Disease Treatments

periodontist owings mills | gum disease treatment pikesvilleWe Develop A Treatment Plan Just For You

At your initial evaluation, we will evaluate your gums and determine if you have periodontal disease.  The severity of your periodontal disease condition helps define the best treatment regimen.  Non-surgical gum disease treatment often includes scaling and root planning to remove the plaque and tartar from below the gums and the use of antibiotics.  In some cases, surgical treatment is necessary to restore the health of a patient's periodontal condition.

Contact Us

Periodontal disease treatment often also includes restoration of faulty fillings and replacement of missing teeth to provide a healthier oral environment. Contact us to schedule your consultation to treat your gum disease today!

 

Periodontal disease means an infection of your soft and hard tissue. Without consistent and daily brushing and flossing, plaque (or bacteria) can build up on teeth and become hard. If you do not remove plaque, it forms into tartar that cannot be removed with a toothbrush alone.

Only your Pikesville dentist or dental hygienist at Naylors Court Dental Partners can remove tartar. If Pikeville patients do not get this treated, gum disease will advance to bleeding gums, pain when chewing, and, ultimately, tooth loss.

While many factors contribute to the development of periodontal disease, the most common variables are:

  • Smoking
  • Improper oral hygiene
  • irregular dental cleanings 
  • Systemic disease
  • Crooked and overlapping teeth
  • Diabetes
  • Hormonal changes
  • Dry mouth from medication
  • Illness
  • Heredity 

What Are the Symptoms of Gum Disease?

While gum disease can sometimes be asymptomatic, meaning symptoms are mild or unnoticeable, there are some signs you can look for. If you notice one or more of the following symptoms, call your dentist at Naylors Court Dental Partners today so we can prevent long-lasting oral damage. 

Symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Consistent bleeding
  • Swollen gums
  • Gum soreness 
  • Constant odor
  • Pain when chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Receding gums

Are you experiencing abnormal pain, tenderness, bleeding, or swelling? These are likely caused by an oral health issue that will not go away without treatment from your Pikesville dentist. Please call us at (410) 684-0173 to schedule an oral examination.

Contact Us

Luckily, our Pikesville dental office offers treatment for gum disease, working to treat any existing damage and prevent further development of the disease. If you are suffering from any of these symptoms, give us a call today for a dental consultation. 

Invisalign

Invisalign in Pikesville

Our Pikesville, MD dentists use Invisalign treatment to correct many common smile alignment problems, including overcrowding, spacing, and other misalignments. Invisalign is an excellent treatment option for many people, but it’s not right in every situation. 

You are a likely a good candidate for Invisalign if:

  • You are an adult or in your late teenage years
  • You have mild or moderate smile alignment problems 
  • You do not have severe overcrowding and do not need teeth pulled before you begin your orthodontia 
  • You are committed to wearing your alignment trays for at least 22 hours each day 
  • You will continue to brush, floss, and care for your teeth as you usually would 

If you meet the above criteria, our dentists will likely approve you for Invisalign in Pikesville. Unfortunately, Invisalign braces are not the right choice for patients who have severe overcrowding or complicated malocclusion problems. If your orthodontic needs are more involved, we will recommend traditional metal braces. 

Please feel free to contact us for a complimentary Invisalign evaluation. If you are a candidate for Invisalign, we can get your treatment started right away. To discover what Invisalign can do for your smile, contact our dental office at (410) 684-0173 today!

Our Pikesville Dentists Create A Treatment Plan For You

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign clear braces is typically shorter than it is with traditional metal braces. The exact length of treatment time, however, varies from person to person.

Your Invisalign treatment plan will be unique to your smile and your individual needs. Invisalign creates straighter smiles by using a series of clear plastic aligners, and you will wear each aligner for several weeks on average. Each aligner will slowly push your teeth into position, and once you can comfortably wear one aligner, you will move to the next. 

The length of your treatment will depend on how much your teeth need to move into alignment. For some patients, this takes only a few months. For others, it takes several years. Invisalign treatment usually takes between six months and two years, with the average case lasting about one year. Remember, your smile is different from everyone else's, which means your treatment will be, too. 

The best way to put a timeline on your Invisalign treatment plan is to schedule a consultation with our Pikesville dentists. We can evaluate your smile and provide an estimate of how long your Invisalign treatment will take. We can also recommend any tangential or related procedures that should be done alongside your orthodontia.

To schedule a dental appointment to discuss Invisalign, please call us today at (410) 684-0173.

clear plastic aligner I invisalign pikesville mdInvisalign treatment can give a patient many benefits:

1)  Straighter, more beautiful smile

2)  Healthier gums - properly aligned teeth have tighter gums which lead to better periodontal health

3)  Easier oral hygiene - straighter teeth are easier to maintain with regular brushing and flossing

4)  Improved chewing - the proper alignment of teeth allows the teeth to come together evenly, thereby improving a person's ability to chew

Straighten Your Teeth

If you want a straighter smile but are looking for an alternative to traditional metal braces, you may want to consider Invisalign invisible braces

Clear, Attractive Plastic

Invisalign is an orthodontic alternative that straightens teeth without metal and wires. Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear removable trays, also known as aligners. As their name implies, the plastic Invisalign trays are “invisible” and are very hard to detect once they are in your mouth. Many people choose Invisalign because of its subtle, barely-there appearance that allows them to wear their Invisalign aligners at work and social functions discreetly. 

Advanced, Modern Technology 

Our Pikesville dentists design Invisalign trays using advanced dental computer technology. This technology allows us to move your teeth into their final position over time incrementally. If you choose Invisalign clear braces, you can expect your treatment to last anywhere from six to 24 months. 

You will need to change out your Invisalign liners every few weeks as you move through your treatment program. You will still need to visit our dental office from time to time for check-ups, but you will have fewer trips to the dentist than you would with traditional braces.

Porcelain Veneers

If you take excellent care of your teeth, it can be disappointing when teeth are not straight. And if you’re like many of us, you may not want to wait six months or longer to upgrade your smile.

Fortunately, your dentist in Pikesville, MD offers dental veneers to give the illusion of a straight smile.

Dental veneers are thin shields that your dentist bonds to the front of your teeth. These shields give the illusion of straight, symmetrical teeth—meaning your teeth not only look straight, but they also appear to be of the same length.

For a long time, veneers were Hollywood secrets. Today, we offer these celebrity caliber veneers in Pikesville, MD.

Issues veneers can conceal:

  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Gummy smiles

Veneers are also easy to care for and do not require extra steps. Simply brush, floss, and visit your dentist regularly for dental exams and teeth cleanings. A member of our team will also provide aftercare instructions to help you make the most of your new smile.

Contact Our Team for Veneers in Pikesville, MD

If you would like to learn more about our veneers, or if you’re ready to schedule a consultation, contact a team member today.

porcelain veneers pikesvilleCustom-Crafted Veneers for You

Porcelain veneer treatment typically takes two appointments.  During the first appointment, the teeth are shaped to accommodate the placement of the veneers.  Temporary veneers are then placed to simulate the final veneers while the dental laboratory fabricates the porcelain veneers.  At the second appointment, the final porcelain veneers are bonded into place, giving the patient a more aesthetic smile.

Contact Us

If you feel your smile could benefit from porcelain veneer treatment or any of our other offered cosmetic services, do not hesitate to call our Pikesville office to book a consultation!

If you are dreaming of a movie star smile, porcelain veneers can help you get there. Dentists all over the world use porcelain veneers to hide imperfections in teeth and to make smiles look beautiful—and now, you too can get porcelain veneers in Pikesville, MD. 

Thin Coverings for Teeth

It’s helpful to think of porcelain veneers as shells or masks for your teeth. Veneers are thin, wafer-like pieces of porcelain that go over the front of your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers cover up blemishes and can hide cosmetic concerns such as stains, chips, and cracks. 

We bond porcelain veneers to existing tooth structures, which means that most of your natural tooth remains in your mouth when you receive porcelain veneers. Because porcelain veneers stay on top of your teeth, we do need to shave down a small portion of each tooth to make room for the veneer that will go on top. Our porcelain veneers in Pikesville are tooth-colored and designed to match the exact shade of your natural teeth, which means they are virtually undetectable. 

Porcelain veneers are permanent, and they can completely transform your smile. Our Pikesville dentists use porcelain veneers as a tool in smile makeovers when patients have teeth that are misshapen, too short, or have gaps between them.

Tooth Colored Fillings & Other Restorations

teeth colored fillings pikesville

Most adults will need to get a cavity filled at least one time in their lives, so it’s understandable to want to understand your different options when it comes to your filling. When dental issues go untreated, patients tend to miss work to treat dental problems with recurrent trips to the dentist.

While cavities don’t sound like a scary issue, if left untreated, they can lead to dental pain, broken or fractured teeth, and tooth abscesses. Severe dental pain makes it hard to concentrate at work and can only your Pikesville dentist can treat it. 

Natural-Looking Fillings

Your tooth-colored filling, also known as white filling, will look natural and will blend in with the rest of your smile. At Naylors Court Dental Partners, we may recommend tooth-colored fillings for a visible portion of your smile. 

Silver-Colored Fillings

Most people know of silver-colored fillings, or dental amalgams, which are made with a mixture of different metals. Silver fillings are very durable, making them a better choice for molars that withstand a lot of chewing and biting force. 

Both types of fillings can repair cavities, but your Pikesville dentist may recommend different fillings for various reasons. 

Upon evaluation of your teeth, we will determine the type of filling that is best for your tooth. We only use composite resin fillings (white fillings) that bond into teeth, because these fillings place less stress on teeth than the silver amalgam fillings. Because they are white, these fillings will also look very natural when you smile.

Contact Us

If you need a natural composite filling, contact our office today to schedule your appointment!

teeth colored fillings pikesville

Tooth-colored composite resin allows your dentist to protect and stabilize a compromised tooth, or beautify your smile and correct minor smile flaws. 

Protect Decaying or Damaged Teeth

Dental fillings are used to protect and stabilize a tooth that has been weakened as a result of decay. Typically, fillings are enlisted to treat cavities, but they serve other purposes as well.

Your Naylors Court Dental Partners dentist can determine if you have a cavity that requires removing decay and using a dental filling. Tooth decay that is left untreated can result in severe pain and necessitate a root canal to save your tooth.

Your dental filling can last over ten years if there are no issues. During every dental checkup and exam, Dr. Virmani will check your filling to ensure it is not loose or needs replacing. 

Dental fillings are also used to treat teeth that have been slightly chipped, broken, or fractured. Your Pikesville dentist will likely recommend a tooth-colored or white composite filling. Fractures and chips can happen through injury, a slip and fall, car accident, or any other hard contact to your teeth. Even chewing on hard surfaces like pencils, ice, or hard candy can cause damage to your teeth. 

Improve Your Smile

While people commonly associate fillings with cavities and dental work, your Pikesville dentist can also apply white-colored filling to yellow or discolored teeth. As we age, our teeth can become stained due to the foods and beverages we enjoy, or through smoking and drinking alcohol.

Through a cosmetic dental procedure known as dental bonding, you can create a beautiful, white smile. If you have yellowed and stained teeth that don’t seem to improve after teeth whitening, contact Naylors Court Dental Partners to go through your options.

Contact our Pikesville Dentist's

At our office, we utilize tooth-colored composite fillings to match the rest of your smile. If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, cavity, unevenly sized teeth, yellow or stained teeth, we can correct your dental issues in just one dental visit. For more information on fillings, contact our dental office today.

 

Simple, Painless Procedures

Dental Anxiety | Fillings Pikesville MDPatients often avoid going to the dentist because they worry their procedure will be painful or uncomfortable.  Contrary to popular belief, dental fillings are relatively simple procedures.  We work with you to make the procedure as painless as possible, and we strive to maintain the highest level of comfort possible.  After fillings, a mild sensitivity may be noted for a few weeks, but the procedure as a whole are relatively painless.

ZOOM Teeth Whitening

At Naylors Court Dental Partners, we use ZOOM tooth whitening in Pikesville. It is the best product we have used, and our patients absolutely love their results.

ZOOM rids your teeth of brown, yellow, and other unsightly tooth stains, and it is far superior to store-bought kits and drugstore gels. Besides, when you whiten your teeth without input from a dental professional, you run the risk of ongoing tooth sensitivity and abrasive products. There is also the likelihood that you’ll be unhappy with the results—uneven bleaching and resistant tooth stains.

It’s important to remember that your dentist relies on prescription-strength gels and advanced technologies when whitening your smile!

Your Pikesville dentist always makes sure you’re a good candidate for any cosmetic treatment before beginning work, and this includes professional teeth whitening. Considerations may include any restorations or dental health conditions like gingivitis. However, dental health conditions do not necessarily rule you out as a candidate for professional teeth whitening. Your dentist may recommend alternatives or pretreatments before your teeth whitening.

Contact Our Dental Team for Professional Teeth Whitening

If you would like to schedule a tooth whitening consultation, or if you have any questions about ZOOM teeth whitening, we are here to chat with you today.

Teeth whitening does not cause damage to a patient's teeth.  The main ingredient in teeth whitening, hydrogen peroxide, has been used safely by dentists for over 100 years.  Some patients report mild sensitivity for about 24 hours after the whitening procedure.  We will take many measures to help reduce sensitivity during teeth whitening.

teeth whitening pikesville mdIf you have yellow or brown stained teeth, you might feel embarrassed by how your smile appears in pictures or when you meet someone for the first time. Nothing can enhance and improve your image instantly the same way professional teeth whitening does. 

If you are interested in professional teeth whitening in Pikesville MD, we can provide tips and advice to allow you to keep your teeth fresh and white for as long as possible.

Your Habits May Affect Your Results

The long-term results of professional teeth whitening are dependent on many factors. An individual's habits can impact the longevity of teeth whitening. For example, coffee and tobacco use can both cause teeth to stain, thereby lessening the effects of teeth whitening. 

A good rule of thumb—if you're wondering about what might stain your newly whitened teeth—is to imagine a white shirt. Anything that could stain that white shirt will certainly stain your teeth. Tomato sauce, curries, turmeric, red wine, dark teas, and more can start to cast a dull cast on your teeth. 

Possibly the worst thing that can create yellow or brown stains is smoking or tobacco products. If you just got a professional whitening treatment, you probably want to protect your investment and keep your beautiful smile for as long as possible. Consider this an incentive to quit! Smoking also affects other areas of your oral health; for example, it often causes gum disease. 

However, regular appointments with your Pikesville dentist and the use of touch-up whitening trays can help maintain a bright, white smile.
