Cosmetic dentistry isn’t just about creating a pretty smile. With cosmetic dental treatments, patients can improve their oral health and the comfort of their smiles. For example, patients who undergo in-office teeth whitening are motivated to keep their results by brushing and flossing at home. Straightening crooked teeth with clear aligners can make it easier for patients to care for their smiles with a good oral hygiene routine. Patients who choose cosmetic dentistry treatment in our Dundalk, MD dental office benefit from healthier and more aesthetically pleasing teeth and gums.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Dundalk, Maryland
Dr. Mohamed Hassan and his team at iSmile offer these cosmetic treatments to patients:
As an alternative to traditional metal braces, clear aligners offer discreet and straightforward treatment. The clear aligners are removable. Because of this, patients can clean their aligners after they eat or drink. Patients can also eat sticky, crunchy, and hard foods without worrying about damage to their aligners. Additionally, the aligners are more comfortable than braces which require regular appointments to tighten brackets and add new wires.
Tooth bonding treatment uses a composite resin material that creates bright and uniform teeth. Bonding is a more economical option than veneers and benefits patients with minor dental damage, including chips or cracks in their enamel. In addition, the dental bonding material can fully cover the front of teeth or add structure to the top or bottom of the tooth.
The Zoom! in-office teeth whitening allows patients to whiten their teeth in under one hour. Zoom! uses a concentrated whitening gel that, when activated with a curing light, lifts tooth stains and creates a brighter smile. Whitening treatment can brighten the smile and minimize stains caused by foods and beverages, nicotine use, and poor oral hygiene. Additionally, this in-office whitening treatment can lift stains in just under one hour. Zoom! is a great option for patients attending special events, such as weddings, birthdays, and graduations. This treatment delivers quick results with minimal side effects.
Cosmetic Dental FAQs
Read answers to popular questions to learn more about cosmetic dentistry:
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover combines multiple cosmetic dental treatments for patients who want to address more than one cosmetic problem. For example, if a patient wants a brighter and straighter smile, we recommend clear aligners followed by Zoom! whitening treatment. Request an appointment with our team, and we will create a custom treatment plan to makeover your smile.
When will I see results from professional teeth whitening treatment?
Many patients will see results from Zoom! after just one in-office treatment. For example, our in-office whitening treatment allows patients to receive a brighter smile in under one hour. Unfortunately, Store-bought or over-the-counter whitening treatments often do not produce effective or quick results.
How do you treat deep tooth stains?
Patients with deep staining or intrinsic stains benefit from veneers or bonding treatment. Sometimes professional whitening is not enough for patients with tough stains. Often, tooth discoloration may result from tooth wear exposing the dark underlayer beneath the enamel. These stains are intrinsic which can arise because of something within the tooth.
Do I need dental veneers or tooth bonding treatment?
Dental veneers and tooth bonding treat similar cosmetic problems. Porcelain veneers are more costly than bonding treatment but are best for significant areas of discoloration or damage. Alternatively, dental bonding can address more minor imperfections but may not last as long as veneers. We will take your budget and current oral health needs before recommending a cosmetic treatment.
