cosmetic dentistry Gaithersburg, MD Have you ever wished that your teeth look straighter and brighter? Achieving a dazzling smile can enhance your self esteem and help you feel proud to show off your beautiful teeth. Cosmetic services focus on the aesthetic of your smile – position, alignment, color, shape and spacing are the keys to a great smile. Here at Schneider Family Dentistry, we have the experience and state-of-the-art equipment to create excellent smiles. We use several diagnostic tools including digital scanners and photography to custom design your perfect smile. Here are some cosmetic services we offer:

  • If you need a to restore a broken, chipped or cracked tooth, or if you need a replacement tooth, we can make a crown or onlay in single visit – no temporaries needed! We use our CNC Mill to create ceramic covers for worn and chipped teeth while you wait. We custom design and custom color match every tooth and then harden them in a vacuum kiln to over 2100 degrees for a long service life. This precise process ensures a tight, long-lasting fit and the most natural aesthetic.
  • Sometimes moving teeth into the correct position is needed – in that case we use clear aligner therapy (Invisalign) to discreetly work towards that goal.
  • Other times, we find that adding a new surface to a damaged or discolored tooth is necessary, and we may use our industry leading eMax ceramic material to create a veneer or onlay.
  • Tooth whitening, sometimes called bleaching, helps to brighten your smile. We offer highly effective in-office whitening treatments as well as at home treatments that you can do at your convenience.
  • Laser gum treatments are sometimes needed to recontour or heal sick and misshapen gums, and our in-house Periodontist can correct bone defects or missing teeth using advanced bone-grafting and implant techniques!
  • Dentures are removable teeth that replace missing teeth and bone to improve the sunken-in look that often accompanies missing teeth. This also improves bite and chewing stability and can add years to remaining teeth.
  • Today’s bonding materials allow us to repair worn and chipped teeth and replace missing enamel in one easy visit. Replacing old, corroded fillings with new adhesive fillings can make your teeth look new again and add strength to prevent the tooth from breaking in the future.

Whether you are looking for a small upgrade or to correct years of neglect, we have the tools to get your smile to the “next level!”

Veneers Gaithersburg, MD


Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. We recommend this treatment to anyone experiencing discoloration that cannot be fixed with whitening or if your teeth are damaged. Porcelain veneers are also an option if you’re unhappy with the shape or look of your natural teeth.

Porcelain Crowns Gaithersburg, MD

Porcelain Crowns

Getting porcelain crowns is the best way to have a very natural looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. There are times when they decay is so bad that we just have to use a porcelain crown. We also use them with severely damaged teeth or teeth that have already had multiple fillings. Porcelain crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard! There are several types of porcelain crowns so it is important to discuss which type is best for you with your dentist.

A common request we receive is how to make a smile whiter and brighter. This is a relatively simple and quick treatment option that can be performed periodically. Certain foods and beverages, such as wine and coffee, stain the teeth and contribute to discoloration. The teeth whitening process provides a solution that lightens the shade of the teeth.

Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry is not very common, though there are many benefits to using laser during procedures. Wounds from the surgery heal much faster because there is less damage to the surrounding tissue. Lasers minimize bleeding and post-surgical bacterial infections. Often, anesthesia and sutures are not needed after procedures when a laser is used.

Lasers can be used for many different dental procedures. It is an efficient way to find cavities. It can be used to fill them without the need for anesthesia. It can be used to remold gums that grow up and over a patient’s teeth. Many dentists use a laser for dental surgery, like cutting out extra tissue in the mouth, to remove tumors, and much more.

Laser dentistry makes procedures much smoother, more efficient, and less painful for patients. People who are afraid or very anxious at the dentist should find dentists who offer laser dentistry. They will be surprised at how painless it can be to come to the dentist.
