“I do a doubletake at my own reflection!”
Our patients often catch a glimpse of thier new smile in the rear view mirror or in a glass door and have to go back for a second look. It’s amazing what cosmetic dentistry can do!
Porcelain veneers from our our experienced cosmetic dentists are thin porcelain shells that can dramatically change your smile. The extremely durable veneers can last up to 20 years once they are bonded to the front of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can help disguise cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth. They are also stain resistant.
Teeth Whitening is a popular treatment at Germantown Dental Group since many people experience stained or discolored teeth due to aging, coffee, tea, soda, wine, or tobacco products. We offer Zoom!® teeth whitening in our office, which uses hydrogen peroxide gel and a UV light to provide significant results. If you prefer to whiten your teeth in the privacy of your home, we also offer at-home whitening trays.
Six Month Smiles®
How would you like to achieve straighter teeth and a more confident smile in about six months? Six Month Smiles® is an advanced new orthodontic treatment that may be an ideal option for your needs. Designed to discreetly straighten the teeth and correct bite issues much faster than more traditional techniques, the braces used for Six Month Smiles® are clear and the wires are tooth-colored, making them less noticeable to others. Plus, the innovative mechanical design of Six Month Smiles® makes it possible to move the teeth into a more desirable position using less force than traditional braces, often making the treatment more comfortable.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, plastic teeth aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. The teeth aligners are virtually undetectable to others and can be removed at any time, allowing you to conveniently eat food, drink, brush your teeth, and floss without any trouble.
Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, can reduce excess gum tissue that may be causing a “gummy smile.” Our team can use an advanced laser designed to remove extra soft tissue to improve balance and symmetry between your gums and teeth. This procedure can ultimately make your smile look more even and healthy.
Composite Bonding can transform your smile by fixing misaligned, cracked, worn or discolored teeth. This procedure is an alternative to porcelain veneers and uses a strong resin to improve the shape of the affected teeth. The resin is sculpted onto the tooth and then hardened by a special light. A final polish should bring it to its beautiful, natural-looking result.
Porcelain onlays can be used as filling material to replace old metal fillings or repair teeth affected by cavities and decay. These treatments are custom-crafted for the best possible results, and are made to blend in with the natural color of your teeth.
When a tooth is severely damaged both aesthetically and functionally, a porcelain dental crown can restore strength and support while significantly improving its appearance. Dental crowns are custom-designed for the best possible look and fit, covering the entire tooth with results that often last for decades. The crown is specifically made to blend in with your surrounding teeth – once it’s been placed, it should look and feel so natural you may have trouble distinguishing it from your original teeth. These treatments have proven effective for many years, adding protection to a damaged tooth while enhancing the appearance of your smile at the same time.
Tooth-colored fillings are now the standard at Germantown Dental Group, eliminating many of the problems associated with metallic, “amalgam” fillings. These treatments are designed to fill cavities using a stronger, composite material that is completely mercury-free. Not only do tooth-colored fillings offer more durable results, they also blend in with your original tooth for a much more natural appearance. Plus, by ridding our practice of mercury-based materials, we cut down the amount of hazardous waste released into the environment.
