Cosmetic Dentistry Services at Annapolis Smiles
As we age, our teeth can lose enamel and become chipped, cracked and damaged over time. This will eventually compromise the integrity of tooth structure; leaving your teeth more vulnerable to breaking or requiring extraction to protect overall oral health.
There are a wide variety of cosmetic dental procedures available today. Cosmetic dentistry can support long term dental health by strengthening the teeth and restoring balance in the bite. Keep your natural smile for as long as possible! Find out what today’s cosmetic dentistry can do for you. Our cosmetic dentistry services include:

Smile Design by Dr. Scott Finlay
There is a lot of excitement these days in dentistry about smile enhancement, teeth veneers, and in cosmetic dental esthetics. How do you know what is possible for your smile?
Smile Design is a protocol for managing the shapes, contours, and color of the teeth as they appear in a smile. This protocol and management need to balance with the elements of function and health that are specific for each individual in order to achieve a successful result.
A trained Dawson dentist has the skills to marry the parameters of esthetics with the critical elements of health and function. This is accomplished in a multi-step process beginning with an understanding of what the patient’s goals are. Next, the dentist begins to design a vision of the appropriate changes to the smile that would create the most natural beautiful result. We do this with an evaluation of a series of very specific photographs we take at reproducible angles and magnification.
The 2-Dimensional Plan
This represents our “2-dimensional” plan. If our goal is to create a beautiful smile, then the frame to that smile are the gums that drape the teeth and the lips that encircle them. These changes are then tested out through the use of mounted diagnostic models. The dentist utilizes 2 sets of models.
The first set severs as the baseline and will remain untouched. We then manipulate and shape the second set of models. Often with the use of dental wax to see if these changes can be accomplished and designed to meet the functional and health needs of the patient. This creates our “3 Dimensional Dental Blue Print” that will allow the process to be predictably reproduced in the patient’s smile.
The advantage to this Smile Design protocol is the creation of a system that yields predictable results. It also provides a great opportunity for the patient to visualize what the final results will optimally be before any treatment is initiated.
