What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

The term cosmetic dentistry refers to the skillful combination of art and science to improve the attractiveness and functionality of your smile. Even minor cosmetic dental treatments can make a significant difference in your smile, and dramatically improve the way you look and feel about yourself.

If you want to positively affect the appearance of your smile, Dr. Marlin and the skilled team at Prosthetic Dentistry of Washington D.C. can address a variety of dental issues, such as:

  • Missing teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Cracked, chipped or broken teeth
  • Dull, worn or misshapen teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • A “gummy” smile

The cause and extent of dental problems are unique to each patient. Dr. Marlin will conduct a thorough oral exam and carefully explain each of your treatment options. Honest, straightforward communication is a cornerstone of our approach to outstanding patient care. By helping you understand your condition and options, you are more empowered to make informed decisions about your own treatment plan.

Our Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

The natural elegance of your smile encompasses more than just the appearance of your teeth. It involves the contours and structure of your entire face and the confidence you display when interacting with others. The condition of your teeth and gums can affect your self-image, comfort, health, and even your posture.

Prosthetic Dentistry of Washington D.C. offers a variety of cosmetic dental solutions to help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve, including:

  • Porcelain veneers: One of the most versatile cosmetic dental solutions available today, dental veneers are thin, customized shells of ceramic material that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to conceal a wide range of cosmetic imperfections.
  • Porcelain crowns: The quality of dental crowns made at our in-house laboratory are second to none. We take great pride in crafting porcelain crowns that match the color, shape and translucent qualities of beautiful, natural teeth.
  • Teeth whitening: A dazzling, white smile can give you a healthy, vibrant appearance and boost your self-confidence in social and professional settings. Our professional teeth whitening services can be an affordable solution to revamp your smile.
  • Tooth-colored fillings: You don’t have to settle for metal fillings any longer. The tooth-colored fillings offered at Prosthetic Dentistry of Washington D.C. are safer, more durable and seamlessly blended with the natural appearance of your teeth.
  • Gum contouring: If you suffer from a “gummy smile”, Dr. Marlin can help you achieve the ideal gum contours you desire and create a naturally beautiful smile.
  • Dental implants: Allowing missing teeth to go untreated can jeopardize your health and appearance. Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement options and Dr. Marlin is one of the most respected and renowned implant specialists in the nation.
  • Smile makeover: More than a single treatment, a smile makeover is a combination of customized procedures designed to comprehensively improve the appearance of your whole smile.

It’s important to remember that cosmetic dentistry is not solely focused on aesthetics. Many procedures correct more than just cosmetic flaws; they strengthen your bite, restore your oral health and enhance your overall well-being.

Dr. Marlin works diligently to create world-class smiles without ever sacrificing the functionality and health of your teeth and gums. Contact Prosthetic Dentistry of Washington D.C. to begin the journey toward your perfect smile.

    “Before I sought Dr. Marlin’s help, I had very weak, damaged teeth. I was constantly worrying when one may break. I felt very self-conscious about my smile, especially in photos. However, the idea of having drastic dental work done at a fairly young age was foreign to me and provoked a lot of anxiety. As a result, I found myself putting the process off.
    This all changed for me when I began researching prosthodontists in the area and decided to meet with Dr. Marlin and his team. He listened to my concerns and assured me that my teeth would not only be corrected with porcelain crowns, but that they would look natural and congruent with my features. His team worked tirelessly to ensure the function and aesthetics of my teeth were exceptional and to my liking.
    I was so impressed to see that the crowns his team developed looked almost identical to my natural teeth prior to the wear and damage just as I had hoped they would. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and I feel as if a huge weight has been lifted having addressed my dental issues with such a professional and talented team.
   Thank you, Dr. Marlin and team for the amazing job you did, for your kindness and understanding throughout the process, and for being so accommodating to my schedule and fitting me in sometimes at moment’s notice.
    You guys are the best!!”
