Thanks to today’s advanced dental technology, we at Finney Family Dental can offer an exciting array of cosmetic dental services to keep your smile complete, and looking fantastic. Among the options that our Towson local dentist provides are ceramic crowns, porcelain laminates, bonding, and teeth whitening.
Crowns are a versatile restoration. Whether you have a tooth that needs to be strengthened due to advanced decay or a fracture, or it is misshapen, poorly-sized, crooked, or discolored, our Towson local dentist will augment that tooth with a great-looking ceramic crown. Why ceramic? It’s not only a strong material, but one that has a striking resemblance to the color of your natural teeth, helping it to blend in seamlessly. Impressions are taken and then sent to the dental lab, where it will be created. It will then be fastened and cemented to the top of your tooth.
Porcelain laminates, also called veneers, are one of two highly effective methods for correcting one or several cosmetic issues with multiple or even all of your teeth. Many of the same concerns that are addressed with a crown are done with laminates or with dental bonding, the other choice. Both have specific advantages. Laminates are thin shells that are placed over the fronts of your teeth. They last longer than bonding, but are also typically more expensive. Bonding involves having our Towson local dentist use resins that are soft and pliable. This is done at our office instead of at the dental lab. After the resins are made into the appropriate shape to maximize how your teeth look, a special light is used to harden them.
Over time, due to the natural process of tooth enamel wearing down, and more commonly because of personal habits that include smoking or indulging in red wine, tea, coffee, berries and other products that cause tooth staining and discoloration, you may find yourself in need of whitening done by our Towson local dentist. After just a single session at our office, you will notice outstanding results. Additional visits may be needed, depending on how discolored your teeth are now, and just how white you would like to get them.
