What Are My Options For Restoring My Smile? Treating Common Issues With Cosmetic Dentistry

If you are thinking about getting cosmetic dentistry in Tysons Corner, Mclean, or Vienna, the office of Dr. Priti Naik offers exceptional care in a warm environment. Dr. Naik is an experienced cosmetic dentist, and she loves seeing the positive impact these services have on a patient’s health and well-being.  

If you want to know what treatment options are available and how we can help, we’ve compiled a list of common imperfections that you can solve with cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Priti Naik.

Stained Or Discolored Teeth

Tooth staining and discoloration can be caused by the aging process and the everyday wear and tear of teeth. Yellowing can also be caused by use of tobacco and consumption of dark-colored beverages and foods like coffee, tea, and some kinds of berries.

For external stains, teeth whitening is usually the best choice. Teeth whitening uses peroxide to destroy the chemical bonds that hold stains on your teeth. However, some stains, such as stains caused by fluorosis or a reaction to antibiotics like tetracycline, are internal, and can’t be treated with teeth whitening. The appearance of these teeth can be improved with a dental crown or a porcelain veneer to cover the discolored tooth.

Unsightly Dental Crowns Or Fillings

If you have gold or metal crowns and fillings, you may want to replace them with a more natural-looking filling. We offer both tooth-colored fillings, made of dental resin, and porcelain crowns. If you have a good overall level of oral health, we can remove your old, metal dental work and restore the appearance of your smile.

Crooked Or Gapped Teeth

If you have a few crooked teeth, or some minor gaps between teeth, dental bonding may be the right choice for you. Dental bonding uses a resin to “sculpt” your teeth, and fill in minor cosmetic imperfections. Veneers may also be recommended, if you have more significant gaps or issues with your smile.

We also offer Invisalign and other orthodontic solutions for more serious cases of crooked, gapped, or overcrowded teeth that can’t be covered up with a cosmetic treatment.

Misshapen Or Damaged Teeth

If your teeth have been damaged or chipped, porcelain crowns are usually recommended to restore their shape and appearance. This ensures that the tooth is strong and will be protected from further damage.

Inlays and onlays may also be recommended, if the tooth has not been significantly damaged. If the damage is very minor or your tooth is simply misshapen, porcelain veneers may be used to cover up the issue, and reinforce the natural structure of the tooth.
