All smiles are beautiful; smiling helps connect people to one another, it helps people feel better and helps you feel more confident, attractive, and assertive in your life. Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, hormones produced in the brain, causing a reduction in pain, a boost in the pleasure sensors, and overall well-being. However, when you notice imperfections in your teeth, such as chips, discolorations, and a misshapen appearance, becoming self-conscious about your smile can result in a lot of missed opportunities in life. If you’re worried about the gaps in your teeth and have spent years hiding your smile, then Dr. Kim can help.

Dr. Kim’s Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Seneca Valley Dental in Germantown, MD

Dr. Kim personalizes his cosmetic treatments with each and every one of his patients by understanding their medical history. A person’s oral health takes great account into what procedures can be done and what treatment options are available to them. Dr. Kim offers a variety of cosmetic treatments to craft your smile to the look you desire, including:

Implants

A tooth that’s lost altogether will require an implant to fill the gap in between the gums and teeth, and give a tooth that lasts a lifetime. An implant procedure will involve a steel post drilled deep into the bone beneath the gum, and on top of the post will sit a dental crown. These implants can last anywhere from 15 to 30 years, and while are typically the most expensive procedures available, Dr. Kim is known to be an affordable dentist, offering various dental prices without insurance and care credit services to help with payments.

Veneers

Veneers act as a shell in front of the discolored or decaying tooth, and aesthetically improve the physical appearance. Dr. Kim’s veneers are made of strong, thin porcelain that fixes many oral problems such as replacing damaged enamel, covering up irreversible stains, and protecting the tooth from infections in the dentin and root.

Dentures

Dentures provide the all-around solution for people with multiple missing teeth or have a severe case of infected, decaying teeth. Dentures work to replace the teeth with a mold of perfectly straight, white teeth that are worn along the gums. Dentures are easily removable and are known as one of the more affordable sources for a movie star smile

Crowns

Crowns help to cover teeth that have become damaged, especially if chipped or cracked in an accident.Crowns can restore teeth back to their healthy, beautiful form by sitting over the damaged tooth, with the enamel of the tooth filed down to accommodate for the crown. Crowns typically last as long as 25 to 30 years when properly cared for, and give those with tooth problems a new alternative to having the perfect smile.
