Dental Treatments in Clinton, MD
Do you have dull, discolored, or stained teeth? In our Clinton, MD dental office, we provide treatments to brighten discolored teeth. Common causes of tooth discoloration include tobacco use, poor oral hygiene, pigmented foods and beverages, and certain medications and medical conditions. All of our dental services have treatment options that can brighten the teeth and address problems like missing teeth, dental injuries, and routine dental hygiene.
Cosmetic Dental Solutions
At Horizon Family Dental Care, patients can whiten their teeth using take-home and in-office professional teeth whitening treatment as well as cosmetic dental options that brighten the tooth enamel. Whitening the tooth enamel professionally or covering deep stains with dental bonding or porcelain veneers enhances the appearance of the smile. It is also easier for us to evenly whiten teeth when they are straight and uniform. We recommend Invisalign for patients with moderate orthodontic problems.
General, preventative dental care and good oral hygiene can remove staining caused by foods and beverages that cling to the tooth enamel. At routine dental visits, our dental hygienists provide a deeper clean using special dental tools. Cleaning the teeth in this way can remove superficial stains. As a family dental office, we are proud to offer our dental services to patients of all ages. Maintaining the smile not only brightens teeth but also prevents dental emergencies and tooth infections. However, if patients require preventative care including tooth extractions or custom mouthguards, we can help.
Restorative Dental Care
Replacing missing teeth not only creates a fuller and healthier smile but can be color-matched to natural teeth or brighten the teeth altogether. Dental implants, dental bridges, dentures, and All On Four restorations are capped off with dental crowns. Tooth crowns can be brightened to blend in with other natural teeth or whiten the smiles of patients with missing teeth altogether.
Options for Deeply Stained Teeth
Dental veneers and tooth bonding treatment are great cosmetic dental options for patients with deep tooth stains. Intrinsic staining, which is caused by the inner layer of the tooth, called dentin, cannot be treated with professional whitening. These deep stains can be covered by dental bonding material and porcelain veneers. Dental bonding uses biocompatible material that is color-matched to teeth. This material is shaped onto the front of the tooth to add structure and brighten the smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
We offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening for patients with extrinsic dental stains. Extrinsic staining is caused by pigmented foods, beverages, tobacco products, and other external factors that discolor the tooth enamel. The whitening treatment that we provide in our office uses a professional-grade whitening solution that is applied to the teeth. Before applying the gel, we ensure that the gums are protected from irritation with a barrier. We repeat the whitening process several times until patients achieve their desired enamel shade.
Take-home teeth whitening uses custom trays and whitening gel that are worn for specified amounts of time. Patients who would like to try take-home treatment will need to visit our office so we can take impressions of their teeth. These dental impressions are used as the basis for their whitening trays. Once complete, patients will return to our office for their custom trays and instructions on how to use the trays at home.
