Even healthy teeth can fall victim to noticeable aesthetic flaws over time, from chips and cracks to lackluster stains and discoloration. If you find yourself hiding your smile in photographs, please consider reaching out to Dr. Malcolm Murray to discuss options for cosmetic dentistry in Fairfax, VA. Our dental team offers several cosmetic dentistry services that can create dramatically beautiful improvements for your appearance. Plus, with Virtual Smile Designing, we show you how the changes will look before you even undergo treatment!
When faced with several cosmetic problems at once, the thought of undergoing multiple procedures to correct them all can be overwhelming. With porcelain veneers, patients can simplify this process for the better by giving their smile a full makeover in one fell swoop. These thin, custom restorations are designed to fit over the front surfaces of teeth hiding years of imperfections and damage from view.
To successfully receive veneers, patients need to have a small amount of natural tooth enamel removed; this makes the procedure permanent, in most cases. Lumineers are also available at MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for patients who would appreciate a prepless, reversible option.
All-ceramic restorations are the perfect blend of durable strength and lifelike beauty allowing patients to enjoy a smile that both looks and feels completely natural. The high-quality material Dr. Murray uses is an ideal match for tooth enamel, even reflecting light in the same way. Their biocompatible, metal-free nature is also great news for patients who suffer from allergies or sensitivities to traditional dental materials. CEREC technology is available at MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, simplifying the creation and placement of a new, quality restoration down to a single, convenient appointment!
Direct bonding is a great cosmetic option for patients who are looking to make minor, affordable adjustments to their look. Our team will use the same tooth-colored composite material we rely on when filling decayed teeth ensuring that it blends in well with the surrounding teeth as we correct your chip, crack, gap, or misshapen tooth structure. With proper maintenance both at-home and in our dental office, the improvements made with direct bonding can last for several years.
Teeth whitening services at our Fairfax dental office create dramatic results that exceed your expectations – in fact, it’s possible to brighten your enamel up to 10 shades or more! Our in-office option is great for patients with busy schedules, while at-home kits are also available if you’d prefer gradual appointments. Dr. Murray offers ZOOM!, Opalescence, and Day White and Nite White so you can be sure to receive the one that best fits your unique needs.
Sometimes, your teeth aren’t the thing that’s holding you back from enjoying the smile of your dreams. When a smile is overly “gummy” or has a misshapen gum line, Dr. Murray can provide assistance with the help of our state-of-the-art soft tissue laser, precisely reshaping the gums in order to create a much more balanced, symmetrical appearance. We may also recommend recontouring for restorative reasons, such as to make the placement of a crown and/or bridge possible.
Not sure what your future smile could look like following cosmetic treatment? Feeling unsure about a certain service and want to spend more time comparing? Our virtual smile design software is designed to simulate what your smile could look like once treatment is completed. All we need is a current photo of your smile and we’ll provide you with an updated photo of what your smile can look like following porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, gum recontouring and more!
