Why Do I Need Cosmetic Dentistry?

Our doctors understand 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. Patients seeking cosmetic dental treatments often comment to the dentist that they hide their smile because they don’t feel comfortable with it. They’re coming to Just For Your Smile for the best cosmetic solution that they can find. Here at Just For Your Smile, we look forward to serving cosmetic patients located in the Vienna, VA area and at our second location in Potomac, MD, 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 Just For Your Smile we provide a wide array of cosmetic dental services. After a quick consultation, the dentist 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.

Some of the cosmetic dental services we provide are:

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, and those can only be improved with internal bleaching.

You can remove fresh surface stains on your teeth by using a whitening toothpaste, but if they’ve been there for a while, you’ll get better luck with professional whitening. 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!

Why Our Dentists Are Considered Leading Cosmetic Dentists in Vienna, VA and Potomac, MD

Not every general dentist provides cosmetic dental services. Some general dentists are not interested in providing these specialized services or they may not have received the proper training. In addition to having additional training, our dentists have a keen eye and talent for creating fantastic-looking smiles. Here at Just For Your Smile, we pride ourselves in helping our patients, friends, community, and families feel confident about their smiles.
