Learn about your cosmetic dentistry options from your Washington, DC dentist.

Would you like to feel better about your smile? Cosmetic dentistry treatments can conceal a chipped tooth, brighten your smile, change cosmetic dentistrythe appearance of a tooth or replace missing teeth. Dr. Leslie Bonner, your Washington, DC, dentist at The Bonner Dental Network, discusses several popular cosmetic dentistry treatments.

Teeth whitening

Improving your smile can be as simple as whitening your teeth. Whitening gets rids of stains that dull teeth and can even help you look younger. Professional whitening offers quicker, more impressive results than do-it-yourself kits and can last several years if you avoid foods and beverages that stain teeth.

Porcelain veneers

You'll want to consider veneers if your teeth are in good condition but you're self-conscious about a cosmetic issue. Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Dentists use them to lengthen short teeth, cover gaps, whiten teeth and conceal chips, cracks, discolorations and oddly shaped teeth.


Crowns improve the appearance of teeth and also strengthen weakened teeth. They're used to lengthen teeth, restore fractured teeth, change the appearance of oddly shaped teeth and conceal chips, discolorations and other cosmetic issues.

Tooth replacement options

There's no need to live with a missing tooth, thanks to bridges, dentures and dental implants. Bridges and partial and full dentures transform your smile and restore your ability to chew and bite. If you're looking for a more permanent tooth replacement option, you'll want to consider dental implants. Implants replace the roots of teeth and bond to your jawbone. As long as you take care of them, you'll probably never have to replace them.


Do you hate the thought of wearing a mouthful of metal while you straighten your teeth? Invisalign offers a better option and doesn't require wires and brackets. You'll receive a series of clear, removable aligner trays that will gradually re-align your teeth. You'll use a new set of aligners every two weeks and will remove your trays to eat.

Isn't it about time you improved your smile? Call Dr. Bonner, your Washington, DC dentist at The Bonner Dental Network to find out which cosmetic dentistry treatment is the best choice for you.

At The Bonner Dental Network in Washington, DC, we understand that your smile isn’t just about your teeth. Wrinkles and fine lines dermal fillersaround the mouth, nose, eyes, and forehead can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and reluctant to show off those pearly whites you’ve worked so hard to maintain.

Dermal fillers such as Botox® are a wonderful way to rejuvenate your appearance. Filling in smile lines creates a new dimension to your look, allowing your smile to light up with confidence once again. The dentist's chair isn't just for those biannual checkups anymore--it's a place to give yourself a sense of satisfaction and pride in your entire look.

Complete Your Smile With Dermal Fillers

Botox® injections reduce wrinkles by preventing repetitive muscle contractions that create those unwanted lines on your skin. Crow’s feet, smile lines, laugh lines, and wrinkles in the forehead are a few of the most common concerns that dermal fillers can address.

This simple treatment is done in-office, usually does not require anesthesia, and can be repeated as needed for lasting results. After your injection, you'll notice that your skin has a more youthful look within several days.

For most people, a single treatment lasts about 4 to 6 months. Patients frequently find that their wrinkles are less obvious when they do return--since the muscles are being trained to relax and move in a slightly different way. They even often continue to do so even after the injection wears off.

Dermal Fillers in Washington, DC

Even the most perfect set of teeth isn’t worth much if you feel uncomfortable when you smile. Dermal fillers can rejuvenate your appearance and give you that sense of pride and confidence you deserve.

Have gum issues that are affecting the look of your smile? This can easily be treated!

When we think about beautiful smiles we don’t often think about the gums. But if you have uneven or excessive gums (also referred to as uneven gums“gummy smiles”), then you are probably a bit self-conscious about how your smile appears to others. If this sounds like you then it’s time you talked to our Washington DC cosmetic dentists--Dr. Leslie Bonner, Dr. Kevin Gregory and Dr. Mina Sawires--about gum treatments that can have your smile looking healthier and more even.

What causes uneven gums?

There are a number of reasons why your gums are uneven, excessive, or receding including genetics, a specific health issue, or even taking certain prescription medications.

Gum recession can cause your gums to appear too low and make teeth look longer. This can expose the tooth root causing pain and sensitivities. This gum recession can lead to serious issues like tooth loss and decay. Gum recession is often caused by gum disease, which can also cause both bone and tooth loss.

Should I consider gum contouring surgery?

While not medically required this procedure is great for those looking to improve the aesthetic appearance of their gums. While gum contouring can also be recommended for those with gum issues due to periodontal disease, this procedure is ideal for those just looking to change the overall shape of their gums to get a more attractive smile.

What is the procedure like?

This surgery is performed right here in our Washington DC dental office using traditional tools and laser dentistry. We will talk to you about which method is the ideal one for giving you the best smile. We will also talk to you about your goals for treatment and may mark the new gum line so you can decide if that is the look you want.

Then a local anesthesia will be injected into the area to numb it. We will use either lasers or manual tools to reshape the gums, removing excessive gum tissue when necessary and even some of the bone at the front of the tooth’s roots to get the best overall look.

The Bonner Dental Network, P.C. is happy to offer cosmetic dentistry to the Washington DC area. If you are looking to get a more fabulous smile then it’s time you gave us a call.
