We Address All Cosmetic Concerns

Cosmetic dental concerns can commonly affect the health and function of your smile. Our dentist in Owings Mills can address all of your cosmetic issues.

Addressing aesthetic concerns as soon as they begin to develop will allow for conservative and effective treatments. The following are the more common dental problems we address in our family-friendly dentist office.

  • Crooked TeethCrooked teeth affect the appearance and function of your teeth and bite. Crooked teeth can make it difficult to clean all surfaces of teeth and lead to higher rates of tooth decay. Invisalign® clear aligners are a discreet and efficient way to realign teeth without the hassle of traditional braces.
  • Damaged Teeth– Cracks, chips, or breaks make teeth more susceptible to infection. Once the enamel is compromised, bacteria can enter the tooth and cause the inner pulp to become infected causing painful symptoms. Dental bonding can repair damaged teeth and seal out bacteria.
  • Missing Teeth– Lost teeth compromise the structure, function, and aesthetics of your smile. Replacing missing teeth is essential for long-term oral health. Our practice offers advanced treatment options for replacing missing teeth and restoring the health and beauty of your smile.
  • Yellow Teeth– Improving the appearance of discolored teeth and teeth with white spots can drastically enhance your smile. Professional teeth whitening is not the only way to get white teeth. Other treatments, like dental crowns, can fix specific instances, without having to get a full teeth whitening procedure.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Who is a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

A good candidate for cosmetic dentistry is someone who has good oral health and hygiene but wants to improve the appearance of their teeth. This could include people with stained or discolored teeth, gaps or spacing issues, misaligned teeth, or chipped or damaged teeth. Consult a qualified dentist to determine if you are a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry.

Is cosmetic dentistry just for looks?

Many patients see cosmetic dentistry just as a way to improve the aesthetics of their smile. But cosmetic problems with your teeth can have an impact on your overall oral health, not just the look of your smile. Crooked teeth are particularly harder to clean and can lead to tooth decay or an uneven bite.

Is cosmetic dentistry for all ages?

Mostly! Most Dentists will only recommend cosmetic dentistry to individuals with permanent teeth. Children should not have any cosmetic procedures performed on them, especially when they don’t have permanent teeth. A dentist can also perform cosmetic services on older patients. Seniors tend to have more cosmetic problems with their teeth.

Does my insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

Insurance doesn’t usually cover cosmetic dentistry procedures that have no medical necessity. However, sometimes there is a grey area between whether or not tooth repair is purely cosmetic or something that has a medical necessity. For example, dentists consider a tooth that is cracked a medical necessity as well as a cosmetic problem.

Can cosmetic dentistry fix crooked teeth?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry can fix crooked teeth through treatments such as orthodontics, dental veneers, tooth bonding, dental crowns, and contouring. However, your treatment plan will depend on the severity of the misalignment and the patient’s age and oral health. A cosmetic dentist will help you determine the most suitable procedure for your case.

Can cosmetic dentistry fix an overbite?

Yes, cosmetic dentistry can fix an overbite. Depending on the severity of the overbite, cosmetic dentists may recommend treatments such as traditional braces or clear aligners, like Invisalign, to gradually shift the teeth into the correct position. In some cases, orthognathic surgery may be necessary. Consult a cosmetic dentist to determine the best treatment plan for your needs.
