What are the Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry?

With cosmetic care, we can:

  • Brighten tooth stains
  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Reshape teeth
  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Repair chipped, cracked, and broken teeth

A beautiful, healthy, and comfortable smile can improve your self-confidence. Treating your smile can also help support overall physical health and well-being. Benefits of cosmetic dental care include:

  • Improved Aesthetics: Cosmetic dentistry’s primary benefit is improving your smile’s appearance. Cosmetic procedures can correct many concerns, like stained, crooked, chipped, or cracked teeth. We can enhance your tooth shape, size, color, and alignment. As a result, cosmetic care can give you a brighter and more attractive smile.
  • Enhanced Self-Confidence: A beautiful smile can boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. Feeling good about your appearance makes you more likely to smile, laugh, and socialize without feeling self-conscious. Improved self-confidence can positively impact your personal and professional relationships, public speaking abilities, and quality of life.
  • Youthful Appearance: Cosmetic dental treatments can reverse the signs of aging in your smile. Stained, worn, or chipped teeth can make you look older. Teeth whitening, veneers, or bonding can create a more youthful and vibrant smile to make you look years younger.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services in Timonium, MD

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the smile’s aesthetics. While this care aims to improve the smile, it can also encourage you to care for your teeth and gums. As your Timonium cosmetic dentist, we want to help you improve your smile. The aesthetic services we provide in our office include:


Clear Invisalign aligners are an alternative to metal braces that comfortably straighten crooked teeth. Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear plastic aligners to realign teeth.

Many patients find Invisalign a more comfortable alternative to traditional metal braces. Clear aligner treatment often has a shorter overall treatment time than braces. Invisalign also has no dietary restrictions because patients can remove their aligners to eat or brush their teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are porcelain ceramic shells that cover the front of teeth. They allow patients to maintain the function of their natural teeth while covering damage or stains. Veneers can cover small tooth gaps, chips, or slightly crooked teeth.

In addition, because veneers are thin shells, they only require a small amount of enamel preparation before bonding. However, veneers are permanent

Teeth Bonding

Dental bonding uses a composite resin we apply and cure to teeth. Bonding addresses chips, cracks, and other damage. This treatment is also a more economical alternative to veneers.

We place bonding material on the tooth enamel. We color-match bonding to blend in with the smile. For this reason, we can cover a single discolored tooth in addition to damaged teeth. Then, we shape the material to the shape of your natural tooth. Finally, we cure the material.

Teeth Whitening

Do you have years of tooth stains? Consider teeth whitening. You can complete professional Zoom! whitening in our office or may at home for convenient care. Zoom! uses a whitening gel and light that can brighten the tooth enamel by multiple shades.

We can also create custom trays in our Timonium office for take-home treatments and touch-ups. Home whitening provides a simple way to brighten teeth in the comfort of your own home.

How Does Dental Bonding Work?

Bonding agents are the foundation of cosmetic dentistry. Tooth bonding material can change the shape, size, and appearance of teeth. They change the color of discolored teeth and add more tooth structure to damaged teeth.

Dental fillings and veneers often use composite resin used in bonding. This tooth-colored bonding material ensures restorations adhere to teeth. We also color-match resin so it blends in with the smile.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover uses multiple cosmetic and restorative treatments to create a functional, beautiful smile. We will recommend a smile makeover to transform your smile if you have these problems:

  • Worn teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Short or long teeth
  • Chipped and cracked teeth
  • Missing teeth

We ensure you are in good health before a smile makeover. Our office can treat gum and tooth infections before cosmetic care.

Then, we will examine your teeth to note your cosmetic problems. Then, we will create a personalized treatment plan that consists of several cosmetic services to improve your smile. In addition to the usual treatments, we may recommend dental crowns, inlays and onlays, and dental implants.

Our office will ensure this plan matches your goals and budget. Personalized care ensures your smile makeover matches your needs. While this process can take time, a smile makeover can create your dream smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Do you have questions about cosmetic dental care? Learn more with questions about cosmetic dentistry in our Timonium MD office:

Do cosmetic dental treatments only fix the smile’s appearance?

Cosmetic dentistry can improve the look and function of teeth. Treatments like veneers or tooth bonding can help protect teeth from more damage. Chipped or cracked teeth can become worn down or lost if an infection reaches the root canal.

In addition, patients with straighter, brighter teeth are often more motivated to maintain their results. Many maintain results through regular dental care and good oral hygiene.

Will insurance cover my cosmetic dental treatment?

Dental insurance does not cover cosmetic procedures because they are non-essential. Schedule a dental visit with us, and we can help you determine your options for coverage. Companies that offer payment plans like CareCredit can keep treatment within your budget.

Can I whiten veneers or bonded teeth?

Professional teeth whitening treatment with Zoom brightens stained teeth. Dental veneers or tooth bonding can cover stained teeth. However, we cannot professionally whiten bonding or veneers. Bleaching agents will not affect veneers or bonding treatment.

We may recommend a dental cleaning to remove surface stains. If this does not work, we may replace old, discolored restorations for a brighter smile.

Is cosmetic dentistry permanent?

Cosmetic procedures are rarely permanent. Teeth whitening can last anywhere from six months to three years. Bonding can last three to seven years, and veneers last fifteen or more years.

The amount of time your cosmetic restoration lasts depends on how well you take care of your smile. Even with Invisalign, you must wear your retainer to ensure the results last.

What’s the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment?

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic services. This non-invasive treatment is easy to access for many patients.

Tooth stains are a common concern because most people have this problem at some point in their lives. Stains come from many sources, from foods and drinks to medicines. Teeth whitening treatment helps restore confidence in your smile.

Should I get cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry treatments are not essential. However, we may recommend treatment if we see certain issues. The choice is entirely up to you. You can benefit from cosmetic care if you want to treat chipped, crooked, or stained teeth.

Sometimes, oral health problems can cause cosmetic dental problems. We may recommend services that could help your smile look and function better.
