An unappealing smile can leave you feeling self-conscious throughout your day. The exact nature and severity of the imperfections will directly dictate the cosmetic dental treatments that Dr. Elliot Einbinder recommends.

Many people with stained teeth will turn to retail level whitening products like whitening toothpaste and whitening strips. Unfortunately, these products are only potent enough to resolve minor surface stains.

For moderate to deeply stained teeth, Dr. Elliot Einbinder will need to perform a professional dental bleaching treatment. Once their whiteness and luster has been fully restored, you can then maintain your smile with whitening strips or whitening toothpaste.

If your teeth also have chips or visible fillings, Dr. Elliot Einbinder can restore the faces of each tooth by installing porcelain dental veneers. These are basically thin porcelain shells that shaded bright white, and cemented onto the faces of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material will only be subject to minor surface stains in the future. This will give you a white and appealing smile for many years to come.

If one or more teeth have been compromised by decay or past fillings, Dr. Elliot Einbinder might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain crown.

If you are unhappy with your smile’s appearance, you should call Dr. Elliot Einbinder’s Pikesville, Maryland clinic at 410.486.3898 to explore your cosmetic dental options.
