Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Joel Nathanson offers a full range of cosmetic dental services—everything from teeth whitening to veneers to cosmetic crowns to cosmetic orthodontics—all from the convenience of our Hunt Valley dental office. Regardless of your aesthetic concerns, we can give you a smile you’ll want to show off!

Are you dealing with crooked, crowded, or discolored teeth? They are the most common complaints we hear from our patients, and are all easily corrected with cosmetic dentistry at Nathanson Dental.

Tooth Discoloration

Teeth whitening: Our tooth-whitening treatments can make teeth considerably whiter in many cases. Our system of in-office whitening coupled with take-home trays creates great results that can be touched up at your convenience. Just wear your trays for a few hours or overnight for one night each month to keep your smile white.

Veneers: If there’s difficulty actually whitening the natural tooth structure because of old fillings or other restorations, we may recommend Lumineers® porcelain veneers. Lumineers cover the front side of the teeth, eliminating discoloration and correcting misshapen teeth.

Crooked or Crowded Teeth

When the issue is teeth that are either crooked, or in some cases too crowded or too far apart, Dr. Nathanson may suggest orthodontic treatment. You may have had orthodontics when you were younger, but because you didn’t wear your retainer, your teeth relapsed into their old positions. This applies to most of us, so you’re part of a very big club if this happened to you. Thankfully, our orthodontic services can return the straightness of your smile, sometimes in just a few months!

Invisalign®: Invisalign is very popular because it doesn’t use brackets or wires at all. It’s a set of clear aligners that you can remove when eating, brushing, and flossing. You can even see what your teeth will look like in advance with our Clin-Check process! In addition to giving you a preview of your smile, it also provides an approximation of how long the treatment is going to take.

Six Month Smiles®: Six Month Smiles uses highly aesthetic clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, so it’s very difficult to see them from a distance. This treatment works faster than Invisalign, and is appropriate for more advanced tooth-movement needs.

Maintaining Your Smile

The most important thing you can do to keep your new smile looking great is visiting our Hunt Valley dental office for professional cleanings and exams on a regular basis. This allows Dr. Nathanson to identify any developing problems that may affect the health and beauty of your smile. While you’re here, take advantage of our fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies or catch up on your favorite Netflix show!

You’ll also want to brush and floss every day to remove tooth-discoloring plaque and maintain the health of your teeth and gums.

We realize that you have many options when you’re choosing a dental office for yourself and for your family, and we want to make this a special place where you get the best dental experience from people who really care about you. We go out of our way to make you smile!
