Having Confidence in Your Smile

Cosmetic dentistry is about making your dreams come true. If you ever hide your smile because you’re unhappy with your teeth, it’s time to consider our cosmetic smile solutions. Smiling with confidence feels great and is an essential social and professional asset, yet many people avoid showing their teeth in public or in photographs because they don’t like what they see. If that sounds like you, then you might be a great candidate for treatment with a cosmetic dentist.

Dr. Brush understands that your smile is part of who you are and your identity. Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you. Here at Sheila L. Brush, DDS, PC, we look forward to serving cosmetic patients located in Laytonsville, Maryland, as well as the surrounding areas.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on improving the aesthetics of your smile. If you find yourself uncomfortable with your smile and sometimes stop yourself from smiling then cosmetic dentistry is something you should consider. Here at Sheila L. Brush, DDS, PC, we provide a wide array of cosmetic dental services.

After a quick consultation, Dr. Brush will be able to suggest cosmetic dental procedures that will not only you feel comfortable with your smile but will also help strengthen your teeth so that your smile can last your entire lifetime.

There are many benefits to receiving cosmetic dental solutions. Some of these include:

  • Improved self-esteem
  • Improved oral health
  • Improved appearance
  • Improved function

Every smile is different, so our solutions are customized to fit your individual needs. Your personalized cosmetic dental treatment may include:

Dental Stains and Teeth Whitening

There are two types of stains that you can have on your teeth. Surface, or “extrinsic” stains, caused by smoking and diet occur on the surface of the enamel. “Intrinsic” stains are deeper and happen inside the tooth. Most whitening treatments with the exception of internal bleaching are targeted towards extrinsic stains.

For longer-lasting results against extrinsic stains, professional whitening treatments are more effective than any whitening toothpaste. To get that brighter smile, you’ll need to actually change the color of your teeth. You can do this using a bleaching agent. The bleaching agents most products use are hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

These chemicals break stains into smaller pieces, making their color less concentrated and leaving your teeth much whiter! A great way to do this that is convenient, customized to your teeth, and professional is with our practice’s in-house whitening treatment.

What are Veneers?

For teeth with aesthetic imperfections that go beyond stains, such as chips or slight alignment problems, veneers could be a good solution. A veneer is a custom-made thin layer of porcelain or resin that covers the front surface of teeth.

Veneers improve the overall aesthetic of a smile by changing the shape, closing up spaces between front teeth, and covering up significant stains from coffee or red wine. The porcelain veneers are hand-painted and glazed for the most aesthetic and natural tooth look possible.

Dental Bonding for Damaged Teeth

A simpler option than veneers is dental bonding, in which we apply a tooth-colored resin to a misshapen tooth or one that has been chipped, cracked, or damaged by decay and harden it using a special ultraviolet or laser light. We then trim, shape, and polish it to make sure it matches the rest of the smile. Bonding is a great alternative to silver fillings and it will blend in much better!
