Our Northern Virginia cosmetic dentistry clinics have transformed the smiles of thousands of patients, allowing people just like you to live confidently and care-free. Let’s look at some of the ways our local cosmetic dentist can give you the smile you deserve.

Cosmetic Teeth Whitening

Bright, white teeth are a critical part of a great smile. But teeth can discolor for many reasons. Genetics play a role in the color of your teeth, for example. Staining can occur from smoking or excess consumption of tea and coffee. Poor dental hygiene is another factor, as is age. Fortunately,ouroffice has multiple whitening treatment options that can safely strip away the unwanted stains and restore your teeth to a brighter, whiter shade. We would love to see you for a Complimentary Teeth Whitening consultation to determine what option fits your desired result & budget the best.

Cosmetic Veneers and Crowns

Dental veneers and crowns are used to restore the appearance of stained, damaged or crooked teeth. Veneers are constructed from a thin layer of porcelain or other material that’s then applied to the front of the tooth. Crowns are similar in structure but are placed over the whole tooth. Whether a crown or a veneer is right for you will depend on the condition of your teeth and what your cosmetic goals are – but either is an excellent way to restore your smile.

Cosmetic Bonding

Similar to veneers and crowns, cosmetic bonding is used to restore or reshape teeth, and minimize gaps between teeth. Where cosmetic bonding differs from crowns and veneers is that it’s only applied to the part of your tooth that needs repair. Cosmetic bonding tends to be more affordable than veneers and crowns, and can be a great alternative for those whose budget doesn’t allow for the former.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Implants consist of an artificial root and tooth that are surgically implanted into the gums. They’re designed to replace missing teeth and round out a smile, and are an ideal solution for those who want a natural-looking tooth replacement solution. Implants can be used to replace one or more teeth – and for some, as an alternative to dentures. Implants may be covered by insurance.

Gum Sculpting and Reshaping

Gum sculpting is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes your gums to improve the appearance of your smile. Gum sculpting involves the use of a scalpel or laser to remove excess gum tissue, sculpt uneven tissue, or even graft additional tissue in places where too much of the tooth is showing. It’s an effective option for those suffering from certain gum conditions, or who want to show off more of their smile.

Invisalign® Teeth Straightening

A popular alternative to braces, Invisalign® is an increasingly common solution for discreetly straightening teeth. It involves the use of clear specialized trays that gradually move crooked teeth into position for a straighter grin you’ll want to show off. Invisalign® is both a cosmetic and functional treatment that improves your bite – and your smile.
