Cosmetic dentistry includes any dental treatments or services that enhance and improve the appearance of your smile. Some, like teeth whitening, are considered to be strictly cosmetic in nature. But others, like dental fillings or crowns, that you may think of only as a way to solve oral health problems also have cosmetic benefits.
At Gladnick Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we can address just about any flaw that mars your smile and makes you feel self-conscious. And in many cases, the treatments we use at our Rockville, MD dental office also improve your oral health.
The tooth-colored filling material we use is a composite of plastic resin and glass particles that mimics the appearance of dental enamel. We use the material for fillings because it’s strong and durable, while its natural-looking appearance also makes it perfect for correcting problems like chipped teeth or broken teeth.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Our teeth may become dull and discolored due to the dark foods and drinks we consume, cigarette smoking, or poor oral hygiene. Professional teeth whitening at our Rockville, MD dental office lifts stains and leaves you with a fresh, bright smile. We’re pleased to offer both in-office and customized take-home whitening kits.
Internal Tooth Bleaching
Tooth whitening treatments typically address dental staining on and just below the surface enamel of your teeth. But tooth discoloration that occurs after root canal treatment requires a different process to correct. If you’re bothered by a dark tooth that's the result of root canal treatment, talk to us about internal tooth bleaching.
Invisalign and Clear Correct
If you want a straighter smile without the inconvenience of metal braces, clear aligner therapy could be the perfect solution. Invisalign and ClearCorrect are short-term orthodontic systems specifically designed for adults who want to straighten their teeth in a discreet, comfortable manner.
Removable clear aligners are virtually undetectable, so most people won’t notice you’re wearing them. Using clear aligner treatments like Invisalign and ClearCorrect, adults can see results in as little as 12 months. There are some differences between the two, such as the type of materials used, and Dr. Gladnick will help you decide which is right for you.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
Since we have to alter your tooth to place a dental crown, we usually don’t recommend them strictly for cosmetic reasons. But sometimes a tooth is poorly shaped or proportioned and interferes with your dental bite. Placing a crown not only helps correct your bite, but it also improves the appearance of your smile.
