Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Cosmetic Dentistry

How can we help you?

Cosmetic Dentistry

While promoting your oral health through routine visits and dental treatments is our top priority, the team at Naylor's Court Dental Partners also wants you to have a smile you'll love to show off. Those treatments we offer that are primarily concerned with how your teeth look comprise cosmetic dentistry in Pikesville, MD.

One misconception about this branch of dentistry is that it only addresses superficial tooth problems. But the reality is that cosmetic dental treatments have numerous gains beyond appearance, for your oral health, but also your mental health and overall well-being.

Dental and Mental Benefits of Cosmetic Dentists in Pikesville

One treatment that addresses a dental problem and enhances appearance is tooth-colored fillings. Our dentists use a composite resin matched to your tooth color in order to repair tooth decay that has penetrated your tooth enamel. This service eliminates the cavity but also looks perfectly natural.

In addition, these resins are so attractive and versatile that we use them to correct tooth flaws like discoloration, teeth gaps, chips, and misshapen teeth.

The positive psychological impacts of a smile you're proud to display are well-documented. Even just the act of smiling has the potential to make you and the people around you feel better. Smiling releases endorphins and promotes stress relief.

The social benefits are also considerable, especially when making a first impression. Whether you have a first date, an important job interview, or want to make the best impression on an average day, your bright and open smile can be an asset in every way.

If you're not happy with your smile, it can affect your confidence and make you self-conscious. In the past, people who were unhappy with their smiles had few options for improving their appearance. But all of that has changed. Our Pikesville, MD, dental practice offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments, including:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Tooth-colored fillings 
  • Dental bonding
  • Dental crowns
  • Invisalign
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental implants

So, what are these cosmetic dental treatments? Let's jump in!

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that a cosmetic dentist bonds to the front surface of the teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of the teeth and make them look straighter, whiter, and more uniform. Veneers can also repair chips and discoloration in teeth. 

Tooth-colored fillings have transformed the look of dental fillings, making them more visually attractive and just as functional. This type of filling is made of composite resin and comes in various colors to match the color of your teeth. 

Dental bonding is a tooth-colored resin (the same as tooth-colored fillings) used to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Our dentists match the resin to the color of your natural teeth, which can also be shaped and polished to blend seamlessly. 

Dental crowns are porcelain or ceramic caps placed over teeth to protect teeth that are cracked or broken, support a dental bridge, hold together parts of a tooth, or cover up a discolored or misshapen tooth. Crowns are also custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth. 

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, customized aligners to gradually straighten teeth. The aligners are smooth and comfortable and nearly invisible when worn. Invisalign treatment is an effective way to improve the alignment of your teeth without using traditional metal braces. 

Teeth whitening is performed at our Pikesville dental office using the Zoom! Teeth Whitening System. Zoom uses a special light to accelerate the whitening process, which helps our patients achieve dramatic results in a single session.

Dental implants are small metal (titanium) posts placed into the jawbone under the gums. Once in place, they act as artificial tooth roots and provide a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Implants are an option for people who have lost teeth due to injury, gum disease, or other conditions.
