Dental Procedures to Consider

Dental implants are a dental treatment used to replace a missing tooth or several missing teeth in the mouth. This gives a long-lasting result that no other tooth replacement can offer. They preserve the bone that supports the tooth that can weaken or deteriorate when a tooth is lost. An implant uses a small post that replaces the original root of a tooth. The procedure that is done to place the implant is minor. After a healing period, a custom made dental crown is placed, this replaces the visible portion of a tooth.

Root canal treatment or endodontics is a procedure that is designed to treat the nerve or pulp inside the tooth. This is necessary when inflammation and/or infection exists in this area of the tooth. Without treatment from your Silver Spring dentist, an infection can lead to an abscess and potential tooth loss.

Veneers are an improvement treatment option that can change the size, shape or color of the teeth. These thin coverings are made of a strong porcelain material that looks similar to that of a natural tooth. It is bonded to the surface of the teeth. They help to correct stained teeth, oddly shaped or sized teeth or spacing or alignment problems.

Teeth whitening is a safe way to brighten one’s smile in a short period of time. Your Silver Spring dentists offer in-office teeth whitening and in just one hour’s time.
