Addressing problems like gum disease, tooth decay, and failing teeth before cosmetic procedures ensures the best results. After addressing underlying issues, Dr. Boenning and Dr. Dancykier may recommend one of the options below.

Porcelain Veneers

Quality dental veneers are a good option for patients with dull, yellow, or damaged teeth. Our veneers consist of thin porcelain ceramic shells that blend in with the rest of your teeth. They are perfect for repairing chipped front teeth.

Because porcelain veneers reflect light, they look like natural teeth. To learn more about the dental veneer process, see Porcelain Veneers.

Teeth Bonding

Patients with chips and cracks in one or more of their teeth can benefit from dental bonding. Your dentist will apply the tooth bonding material and then mold it into the proper shape onto the teeth. This will restore the tooth structure.

We always make sure that patients are able to bite normally with the bonding compound on their teeth. You will feel comfortable in no time, and most likely forget that you have bonding. To learn more about the benefits of dental bonding, see Teeth Bonding.

Teeth Whitening

In-office teeth whitening can enhance teeth with simple and complex stains. Our dentists use professional bleaching gel that they can use inside the tooth or on the tooth enamel. Patients may receive dental whitening in just one visit to our Towson dental office.

Quick tooth whitening treatment also benefits patients who are going to special events like graduations, birthdays, and weddings. To learn more about the teeth whitening treatments we offer, see Teeth Whitening.

Cosmetic treatments are often the final step to full smile makeovers. Sometimes this includes changing the size, shape, and color of damaged or discolored teeth. Restorative treatments remove an infection, replace missing teeth, and fix the structure of teeth and gums.

After receiving restorative care, our patients can cover cosmetic blemishes or whiten their teeth with our cosmetic dental services. Additionally, improving your teeth can increase your confidence and reverse the effects of aging on your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Our dental care team takes pride in providing patients with smile makeovers. We want our patients to feel confident about the cosmetic treatments they are receiving. If you have any questions or concerns about a certain procedure, please feel free to reach out to us.

Can cosmetic dentistry fix crooked teeth?

Cosmetic dental bonding can painlessly and quickly correct uneven or crooked teeth. Your dentist will apply a composite resin to the front of the affected teeth, allowing the dentist to reshape them. This treatment is ideal for closing gaps between teeth, reshaping them, or even correcting discolored teeth.

Can cosmetic dentistry fix an overbite?

Yes. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can help to fix an overbite. Orthodontic treatment options may include braces and clear aligners. Braces and clear aligners gradually move the teeth into an ideal position over time.

Your dentist can use porcelain veneers and dental bonding to reshape teeth and close gaps to reduce an overbite. Consult with our dentist or orthodontist to determine the best course of treatment for your case.

Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

Many dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic dentistry procedures. Insurance companies usually consider cosmetic dentistry procedures elective or not medically necessary. Some insurance plans, however, may offer limited coverage for certain procedures if they deem them medically necessary. Check with your insurance provider to see what types of coverage your plan includes.

Are porcelain veneers permanent?

Porcelain veneers are not a permanent solution. Your dentist may need to replace them at some point in the future because of wear or damage. On average, porcelain veneers can last for 10 to 15 years.

However, with the proper care and maintenance, your porcelain veneers may last longer. To help extend the life of your veneers, practice good oral hygiene, and brushing and flossing.

How painful is dental bonding?

Tooth bonding is generally not a painful procedure. Most patients report only minor discomfort or no discomfort at all. You might feel some mild sensitivity for the first few days post-treatment because of enamel removal. However, you can usually manage any pain or discomfort with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Are the results of teeth whitening permanent?

Teeth whitening results are not permanent. The effects of teeth whitening may last for several months to a few years. Factors such as the individual’s diet, oral hygiene habits, and lifestyle will determine how long they will last. To maintain the results of teeth whitening, practice good oral hygiene and avoid foods and drinks that can stain your teeth.
