Patients are looking for a trustworthy, caring cosmetic dentist in Frederick, MD, and have come to rely on the Frederick Dental Group, with Dr. Dave Verma and Dr. Arpana S. Verma. We specialize in serving people who are afraid to go to the dentist. In fact, our motto is, “We cater to cowards!” Our patients appreciate how we explain their dental situation in easy-to-understand terms, and even offer a free second opinion if they have questions or concerns about a recommended treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Traditional dentistry is concerned with oral hygiene, and prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral disease. But today, many people want to use cosmetic dental care to revitalize their smile or get a complete dental makeover, and so they turn to the premier practitioners of Frederick cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Dave Verma and Dr. Arpana S. Verma. We offer state of the art care for both necessary treatments, such as dental hygiene and periodontal health, and cosmetic dental services such as:

Lumineers

One of the specialties we offer for cosmetic dentistry in Frederick, MD, is lumineers. These are very thin and highly translucent porcelain that are bonded to your teeth. Because they are so thin, they reproduce the natural appearance of enamel. Also, there is little or no tooth reduction or grinding needed before they are applied. And they are durable enough that they usually resist wear and last over 20 years. To find out more about lumineers, click here.

Veneers

Many patients looking for a cosmetic dentist in Frederick are interested in veneers. These are a great way to reshape and redesign your entire mouth. Veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry care where a layer or shell of tooth-colored porcelain or composite is placed over tooth surfaces to correct problems such as:

  • Worn tooth enamel
  • Uneven tooth alignment or spacing
  • Discoloration
  • Chips or cracks

Although porcelain laminate veneers are considered part of the field of cosmetic dental care because they give a patient a bright, white smile and shapely, beautifully aligned teeth, they also protect the surface of damaged teeth, and so may reduce or eliminate the necessity of more expensive hygienic treatments.

Bridges

If you are missing one or more teeth, you should discuss the advantages of dental bridges with one of our cosmetic dentist Frederick MD. A dental bridge is a great way to replace missing teeth and provides both esthetic and dental health benefits. It not only improves the look of your smile, but it will prevent structural changes to your mouth and jaw, and allow you to eat and speak without difficulty.

Dental bridges are created from your existing teeth, making a bridge across an area where a tooth is missing. Bridges can be made from gold, metal alloys or porcelain, and are designed to be strong and durable. Existing teeth are reshaped to make a base for the bridge, and then a custom designed bridge is made consisting of crowns to place on the reshaped teeth and hold the replacement tooth in position, and the replacement tooth itself. And if we cannot help with a standard dental bridge be sure to ask us about a cantilever bridge or an Implant. Click here for more information on bridges.

Bonding and White Filling

Bonding is a popular treatment used by our Frederick cosmetic dentist practice. Bonding is used to increase the attractiveness of a patient’s smile by correcting cracks or gaps in teeth, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth. With these popular cosmetic dental services, composite resin is applied to the affected tooth or teeth. The resin is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. The resin is then hardened with a special wavelength light, and then it is polished, giving the patient a new, vibrant smile. Read this article for more about bonding and white filling.

These are just a few of our most popular procedures, but we can also cover a whole lot more, from gum reshaping, enamel shaping, or even gum grafts; we can also help people with almost any dental care need.
