Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Have you been dreaming of a more beautiful smile? While our focus at Catonsville Dental Center is to help patients achieve optimal oral health, Dr. Kayode Onanuga is happy to offer several additional services that focus on the cosmetic aspects of your smile. Contact either of our locations to schedule a consultation. This visit allows Dr. Onanuga to carefully inspect your smile, listen to your dental health goals, and make recommendations for treatments that create the dazzling results you’re looking for.
Do you wish you could brighten your smile instantly? Do you have a wedding or graduation ceremony coming up that you’d love to look your very best for? In-practice whitening here at Catonsville Dental Center creates the stunning results you’ve dreamt of in about an hour. Dr. Onanuga applies a highly concentrated whitening solution and carefully monitors your condition during your visit. After only an hour, you’ll be able to leave with a smile that’s several shades brighter.
At-Home Whitening Kits
If you’d prefer to achieve a brighter smile at a more gradual pace, our team offers an alternative solution: customized at-home whitening kits. Dr. Onanuga provides you with a customized bleaching tray and whitening gel. All you have to do is wear both together for a predetermined amount of time each day. This can be done in the comfort of your own home, and on your own schedule. Some patients notice a change after the very first application, and the most significant changes occur after a couple weeks of diligent use.
Fillings are used to treat a tooth that’s been negatively affected by decay, a crack, or a fracture. The procedure involves removing the affected parts of the tooth replacing them with a composite resin filling that restores structure and improves strength. Here at Catonsville Dental Center, Dr. Onanuga is happy to exclusively offer a tooth-colored composite resin material that’s mercury-free and much more aesthetically pleasing compared to silver-colored fillings. Our tooth-colored fillings also allow patients to preserve the maximum amount of natural enamel, and are much less sensitive to temperature changes.
We often recommend veneers when a patient is correcting multiple aesthetic dental flaws at once, such as chips in the enamel, stubborn stains, or unattractive gaps between teeth. These very thin, high-quality shells of porcelain are precisely designed to fit over existing teeth and create a gorgeous new look for your smile. The process is usually two to three appointments: an initial consultation, impressions and preparation of the treated teeth, and the placement of the finished product.
Here in Catonsville, MD, our dental team wants patients to enjoy revitalizing or health benefits of our treatments and restore the aesthetic value, so they’re able to smile and speak with complete confidence. That’s why Dr. Onanuga is happy to offer all-ceramic options for crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. In addition to blending seamlessly with natural enamel, all-ceramic options are more biocompatible and comfortable for patients.
