Cosmetic Dentistry in Washington DC
While general dentistry focuses more on the health of your teeth and gums, cosmetic dentistry centers around the appearance of your smile. In some cases, the two go hand-in-hand.
When your vision for your smile is to improve certain aspects for both health and esthetics, our Washington DC cosmetic dentists offer several ways to transform them, such as:
- Bonding: We apply a bonding liquid to the surface of your teeth, followed by a plastic resin. This can be done to restore cracked and chipped teeth, or it can be used to re-sculpt misaligned teeth.
- Inlays and Onlays: Made of gold, silver, resin or porcelain, inlays resemble fillings but provide more strength. Onlays cover more of a tooth’s surface than inlays.
- Veneers: Usually composed of porcelain, veneers are bonded to the front surface of teeth and can cover significant damage as well as slight misalignment and unevenness.
- Whitening: We offer two distinct methods of teeth whitening in our Washington, DC office for our patients. Our in-office treatment can be done in a single visit, or our take-home bleaching trays are custom fit for maximum convenience.
When preparing the surface of your teeth for veneers or other general and cosmetic procedures, we use air abrasion technology. As opposed to the conventional drill, air abrasion is much quieter and more gentle on your teeth. It’s a more pleasant experience for our patients and can be more efficient than the alternative.
