Why choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

By coming in for a professional whiting treatment, you will receive customized, safe, and powerful results. We are proud to offer GLO Science Professional Teeth Whitening for a beautiful smile. We partner with GLO directly to provide you with the latest innovation of teeth whitening technology for an effective, enjoyable, and pain-free whitening experience. Your in-office visit of chair-side whitening can brighten your smile up to 12 shades whiter in under an hour, without sensitivity using GLO warming heat and light technology combined with a peroxide whitening gel. You will receive your own take-home GLO-ing mouthpiece and repeat a similar process at home to maintain your results.

What Is Bonding, Shaping & Contouring?

Dental bonding involves the application of a special type of dental resin to reshape and restore your teeth. The bonding material is applied directly to your tooth, and Dr. Morrison will then shape and sculpt it until it looks just like a natural part of your smile. This treatment is often used to restore chipped, uneven, and misshapen teeth. Shaping & contouring (also called enameloplasty) are often used alongside dental bonding. This procedure involves buffing away a thin layer of enamel from some of your teeth to create a more even, attractive, and appealing smile.

How Can Veneers Improve My Smile?

Veneers are very thin, tooth-shaped dental prostheses made of durable porcelain. They are designed to fit over the front surfaces of your teeth and correct a wide variety of cosmetic issues. Whether you have serious stains, gaps, chips, misshapen or slightly-crooked teeth, veneers can help! Veneers are extremely durable, look and feel completely natural, and can be placed in just two short appointments.

What Is a Cosmetic Makeover?

If you require multiple cosmetic treatments to achieve the smile of your dreams, this is known as a cosmetic makeover. At Morrison Cosmetic Dentistry, we specialize in smile makeovers and Dr. Morrison will develop a comprehensive, custom-tailored treatment plan to address every need and preference in order of importance.

How Much Do Cosmetic Treatments Cost?

Cosmetic dental treatments can vary greatly in cost depending on the specific procedure, the materials used, the level of specialized technology used, and how many teeth the procedure needs to be performed on. 

Teeth whitening, dental bonding, and enameloplasty are on the lower end of the cost spectrum when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. These are minimally invasive procedures that don’t require multiple appointments, expensive materials, or outside dental labs.

Veneers and porcelain crowns, on the other hand, are more costly. Porcelain produces great aesthetic results but is the most expensive material used in tooth restorations. These procedures require multiple appointments and the restorations are fabricated by outside dental labs which contributes to higher costs. 

Smile makeovers can also have a large range in cost, depending on how many treatments a patient is getting and the severity of their dental imperfections. Book a consultation with our Chevy Chase dentist Dr. Morrison and we can give you a quote on the cost of your cosmetic treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Most patients who are in good oral health and who have insecurities or concerns about their smiles are great candidates for cosmetic dentistry. However, your eligibility for specific cosmetic treatments will depend on the severity of your concerns and the condition of your gums and jawbone. 

Teeth whitening is typically a good choice for most people. Dental bonding is a great option for those with minor tooth damage like small cracks and chips but more severe damage will require restorative treatments like dental crowns. 

To qualify for dental implants, we will need to determine that you have sufficient jawbone density to support the implants or you may need to undergo bone grafting procedures. At your cosmetic consultation, we will examine your teeth and gums and take x-rays to rule out tooth decay and gum disease. 

Any active oral health problems will need to be treated before we can prioritize cosmetic dentistry. An ideal candidate is in good oral health and wants to fix problems such as tooth discoloration, cracks or chips in their teeth, small gaps, crooked teeth, or they are unhappy with the size or shape of their teeth.

Can I Get More Than One Cosmetic Treatment At a Time?

Yes, depending on your concerns with your smile, multiple treatments may be utilized to address your different goals. Typically a cosmetic makeover is the best choice when you have more than one issue with your smile. 

A cosmetic makeover is a completely personalized cosmetic dental plan that addresses all of your aesthetic goals for your teeth. We may combine a couple or many treatments to formulate the best possible result that fits within your budget. Paying for a cosmetic makeover can be a financially smarter decision than getting a bunch of treatments done individually.
