Teeth Whitening

A bright smile is about more than just vanity. It can help increase your self-esteem, give you incentive to smile more, and make you feel like a million bucks. At Rockville Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry services. We can do some procedures in our office with just one visit. Additionally, we can make custom trays that you can wear at home to give you a more vibrant smile in as little as a few days!

Whichever you choose, we never recommend buying over-the-counter whitening agents. They won’t whiten your teeth as quickly or effectively. There’s also no way to be sure that they’re safe or healthy for your teeth.

Veneers

Many people confuse veneers with crowns. However, veneers are a little different. Instead of covering your entire tooth, veneers just cover the visible parts. You have two main options for veneers. The first is ceramic veneers, which are produced in a dental lab. The second is a resin-based composite. Both are considered cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Regardless of which you choose, you’ll have your veneers in two to three visits to the dentist. You can make these beautiful covers last for years by properly caring for them.
