Treating Tooth Damage in Owings Mills

We offer a variety of solutions for patients who want to prevent further tooth damage and cover dental injuries:

Tooth Bonding

Dental bonding is an efficient way to treat chips, cracks, wear, and other enamel damage. The bonding material is made of composite resin that we shape and sculpt onto prepared teeth. Then, once the material is the correct color and shape, we cure it with a special light. Tooth bonding is best for patients with small cosmetic imperfections like chips or tooth wear in one or several teeth. Additionally, we can complete bonding treatment in just one treatment for quick yet high-quality care.

Porcelain Veneers

Similar to dental bonding treatment, veneers cover tooth damage for a brighter, more even smile. Dental veneers are porcelain ceramic shells that we bond to the front of the enamel. Veneers may be used to address each tooth in your smile line, or the teeth that are visible when you smile. Dental veneers may be more costly than bonding treatment, but they offer longer-lasting results.

Dental Crowns

Tooth crowns are caps that fully cover teeth. Patients with molar damage, extensive tooth fracture, or wear benefit from crowns. Compared to traditional crowns, porcelain ceramic crowns are a much more natural-looking option. Porcelain ceramic crowns not only protect and strengthen damaged teeth but also brighten the smile. We customize each crown to match the shade of your smile. Our dentists can also use crowns to create a more even bite.


Patients who grind and clench their teeth benefit from a nightguard. Similar to a mouthguard, patients wear a nightguard to protect their teeth. Many patients with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) clench and grind their teeth unconsciously. Wearing a nightguard during sleep prevents teeth clenching and grinding. In addition, nightguards prevent further wear or damage to the teeth and jaw. Not treating bruxism, or teeth clenching and grinding, can lead to further dental damage as well as chronic headaches and jaw pain.
