The foundation of any beautiful smile is healthy teeth.
Cosmetic dental services can help patients improve the appearance of their smiles while ensuring the health and integrity of teeth, gums, and jaw. While some patients view dental concerns such as chips and cracks as solely cosmetic, it is essential to know that many aesthetic concerns can develop into more complex dental health complications. Most cosmetic dental concerns should be addressed by your dentist to prevent further damage to your teeth and gums.
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. Dr. Suman Chibb has years of experience providing cosmetic and restorative dental services in Baltimore County. 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 Teeth– Crooked 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. Dr. Chibb 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
Is cosmetic dentistry just for looks?
Many patients see cosmetic dentistry just as a way to improve the aesthetics of your 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 in particular are harder to clean and can lead to tooth decay or an uneven bite.
Is cosmetic dentistry for all ages?
Mostly! Cosmetic dentistry is recommended for people with permanent teeth. Teeth whitening and other services shouldn’t be performed on children, especially when they don’t have permanent teeth. Cosmetic services can be performed on patients as they get older, especially because 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, the line can be blurred between something that’s purely cosmetic and something that has a medical necessity. For example, a chipped or cracked tooth can be considered a medical necessity as well as a cosmetic problem.
