Dental Services in Annapolis, MD
Our cosmetic, general, and restorative dental services improve the appearance and health of the teeth and gums. Here you can learn about each of our treatments:
Cosmetic Dental Care
Cosmetic dental treatments enhance the look and function of the smile. Continue reading to learn more about the cosmetic dentistry services that Lighthouse Family Dentistry provides.
Clear Braces and aligners: ClearCorrect uses invisible aligners to straighten crooked and misaligned teeth. The discreet and removable aligners are comfortable and easy to care for. They also typically work faster than traditional braces. To learn more about ClearCorrect aligners, see Clear Braces.
Porcelain Veneers: Dental veneers are porcelain ceramic shells bonded to the front of the tooth enamel. They are a permanent cosmetic treatment. Porcelain veneers restore function to your bite while also repairing the aesthetics to your smile. They are also extremely durable and are color matched to your natural tooth enamel. To learn more about porcelain veneers, see Porcelain Veneers.
Dental Bonding: Tooth bonding treatment uses a malleable, biocompatible material to cover tooth stains and injuries. It is a more economical option, though not as permanent as veneers. To learn more about dental bonding, see Teeth Bonding.
Teeth Whitening: Our in-0ffice and take-home whitening treatments can help patients brighten their smiles. In-office whitening offers immediate results. Take-home treatment is great for patients who want to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their homes. To learn more about teeth whitening services in our office, see Teeth Whitening.
General dental care helps prevent the development of future health problems. Continue reading to learn more about the general dentistry services we provide in our office.
Sports Mouthguard: Patients who play contact sports need to wear a custom mouthguard. A custom-made mouthguard offers a proper fit to protect against dental injuries and tooth loss. It also makes it easier to speak and breathe while playing on the field or court. If you or your child plays a sport that requires a mouthguard, contact our office today. To learn more about custom sports mouthguards in our office, see Custom Mouthguard.
Dental Emergency: Contact our office if you have a dental emergency. We will help alleviate your pain and find the right treatment for your needs. Dental emergencies may include anything from a toothache to a knocked out tooth. To learn more abut dental emergencies and how to deal with them until you can see a professional, see Emergency Dentistry.
Family Dentistry: As a family dental office, we aim to provide services to patients of every age. We also help patients care for their child’s smiles. Additionally, our team offers cosmetic and restorative services for aging smiles. To learn more about family dentistry services, see Family Dentistry.
Laser Dentistry: Dental lasers can treat patients with infected gums, a gummy smile, a tongue tie, or a lip tie. Lasers offer a painless and safe way to treat the mouth’s soft tissues. They allow for pain free dental procedures, without the need for invasive procedures. To learn more about how we use lasers to aid in our dental procedures, see Laser Dentistry.
Dental Sedation: Sedation dentistry, oral conscious sedation, can help you feel relaxed during dental care. Dental sedation may also be used to calm the nerves of patients who have dental anxiety. To learn more about the types of sedation we offer in our office, see Sedation Dentistry.
Tooth Extraction: Dental extractions help patients who have impacted or severely infected teeth. Many patients will require extraction when their wisdom teeth do not erupt properly. To learn more about tooth extractions, see Tooth Extraction.
Restorative Dental Treatment
Restorative dental care addresses tooth damage and loss, as well as gum infections. Continue reading to learn more about the restorative dentistry services Dr. Meiser offers in our Annapolis, MD office.
Dental Bridge: Dental bridges can be used to replace a row of missing teeth. Although traditional bridges are held in place by adjacent natural teeth, we recommend implant-supported bridges. When bridges are secured by implants, they offer longer-lasting treatment. To learn more about dental bridges, see Dental Bridge.
Dental Crown: A tooth crown is a porcelain ceramic cap that can cover a dental implant or natural tooth. Patients with damaged or worn teeth benefit from sturdy dental crowns. They are color matched to your natural enamel, so they blend in with your smile. To learn more about dental crowns, see Dental Crown.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are titanium metal posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw bone. Once an implant is healed, it is a permanent replacement for a missing tooth. Implants may also support dentures and dental bridges. To learn more about dental implants, see Dental Implants.
Dentures and Partial Dentures: For patients with multiple missing teeth, we recommend partial and full dentures. Partial dentures replace several consecutive missing teeth, while full dentures replace whole arches. Dentures can be removable or secured with dental implants. To learn more about dentures and partials, see Dentures & Partials.
Gum Disease Treatment: Our dental office provides a variety of treatments for patients with periodontitis or gum disease. We can remove infected tissue and have you smiling in no time. Routine care can also reverse symptoms like gum inflammation, bleeding gums, and irritation. If left untreated gum disease progresses rapidly, and can result in tooth loss and heart disease. To learn more about gum disease treatment, see Periodontal Disease Treatment.
