- Invisalign - This revolutionary orthodontic treatment uses clear acrylic aligner trays in lieu of metal brackets and wires to move the teeth in a virtually invisible way.
- Smile Makeovers - A smile makeover involves a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures, everything from placing composite fillings to dental implants to porcelain veneers, to truly “makeover” a person’s smile.
- Porcelain Veneers - Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are placed onto the front surfaces of the visible teeth. They cover cosmetic flaws, such as deep staining, misshapen teeth, gaps, and the like, and create a perfect, beautiful smile.
- Porcelain Crowns and Bonding - A porcelain crown covers a damaged tooth all the way down to the gumline, restoring strength and function to the tooth, and allowing the person to keep the underlying natural tooth for the duration. Composite bonding covers flaws such as chips or small gaps between teeth.
- Porcelain Crowns and Bonding FAQs
- Tooth-Colored Fillings - These fillings, made from composite resin, are virtually invisible when we place one in a tooth with decay. That’s wholly different from the silver spot on a tooth from a silver amalgam filling.
- Porcelain Filling FAQs
- Teeth Whitening - That cup of java, bowl of raspberries, and glass of red wine all conspire to stain the enamel of our teeth. We offer two different teeth whitening treatments, Zoom! and KöR Whitening, to remove the stains and whiten your teeth several shades.
- Tooth Whitening FAQs
- Gum Contouring - We can reduce a gummy smile using our diode laser. The laser energy quickly removes excess gum tissue while instantly closing and disinfecting the area. This makes the crowns of your teeth (the visible portion above the gum line) appear longer.
- Laser Dentistry - We use our diode laser for gum contouring, clearing periodontal pockets of gum disease, and other treatments.
- Dental Implants - Dr. Mandy, Dr. Mark, and Dr. Krista are big fans of dental implants for replacing a missing tooth or two and for anchoring bridges. Implants consist of a titanium implant base that screws down into the jawbone. Because the body accepts titanium, it grows new bone around the implant, making it a permanent part of the jawbone. We attach a post to the implant base and a porcelain crown/artificial tooth to the post. Your new dental implant then functions and feels just like a natural tooth, and it will likely last the rest of your life.

What’s the difference between cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry?
Aesthetics versus function. That’s basically the difference between cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry. Most people associate the dentist with placing fillings and bridges, maybe replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant. Those kinds of dental treatments are all about keeping your oral health in good shape: they’re addressing functional problems.
Cosmetic dentistry is concerned with the aesthetic appearance of your teeth and overall smile. Cosmetic treatments may seek to whiten stained teeth or use composite resin bonding to mask a chipped tooth. Goals can overlap, for instance a crown can save a tooth with heavy decay, but a crown can also completely change the aesthetic shape of a misshapen tooth. Cosmetic dentistry has the goal of giving you a dazzling smile without addressing overall oral health and function problems such as gum disease or decay. At Aesthetic Dentistry, Drs. Mandy, Mark, and Krista use cosmetic dentistry to improve patients’ tooth shape, whiteness, alignment, and overall appearance.
Why would someone want to have cosmetic dentistry done?
Those flaws we mentioned above, we all have them. It could be a slight gap between your two front teeth, or you could have a chipped tooth. You could even be missing a tooth that you knocked out in a Turkey Bowl football game and never bothered replacing.
That’s where our three talented dentists can use various cosmetic treatments to cover those flaws. These are some common flaws that cosmetic dentistry would improve:
- Fixing a chipped tooth
- Whitening a badly stained tooth
- Applying veneers to make the teeth uniform
- Fixing a gummy smile
- Closing a gap between teeth
- Changing the shape of a tooth
- Lengthening the crown of an overly short tooth
- Covering badly pitted teeth
Are your various cosmetic dentistry treatments painful?
Most of these procedures offer aesthetic improvements to the quality of your smile; they’re not restorations. There are a few exceptions, as implants, bridges, crowns, and Invisalign aren’t simply cosmetic in nature. But treatments such as bonding and teeth whitening are painless. Replacing old silver amalgam fillings with virtually invisible composite resin involves a minor amount of local anesthesia. Placing porcelain veneers or crowns are painless procedures.
With a dental implant, there is a small amount of discomfort after we place the titanium implant base as your gums need to heal for a few days. But the limited amount of pain is such that there’s no need for prescription pain medication.
You’ll be amazed at how comfortable even laser gum contouring is.
What if I suffer from dental anxiety?
Have no fear, literally, of Dr. Mandy, Dr. Mark, or Dr. Krista and our team at Aesthetic Dentistry of Georgetown. We offer two types of dental sedation to help our anxious patients manage their fear. We offer nitrous oxide and conscious oral sedation to keep our patients completely comfortable. A nice side benefit of sedation is that it creates a slight amnesic after effect where you have little recollection of your visit.
