LVI-Trained Dentist Serving Oakton, Vienna, McLean and Nearby Northern Virginia

Cosmetic dentist Dr. Michael Chung and his family

If you are self-conscious about some aspect of your smile, it does not have to negatively impact your life. Modern cosmetic dentistry allows Dr. Chung to fix any quirk of your smile or common cosmetic dental problems that may be restricting your daily interactions.

Trained at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), Dr. Chung has the skills necessary to enhance your smile and restore your self-esteem and overall well-being. Here are just a few common dental problems that our talented dentist can fix:

Discolored Teeth

Persistent stains from drinking coffee, tea and red wine develop over years and often leave your smile looking dull and discolored. Tobacco use can also make your teeth turn dark and yellow.

Tooth whitening treatments can brighten your smile and remove years of stains, providing you with a younger, rejuvenated smile.

Unattractive Smile

If your teeth are uneven, overcrowded, too short, or too long, these common dental problems can be corrected with porcelain veneers, which are thin shells placed over your natural teeth to make your smile appear straight, white and aesthetically pleasing.

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay affects patients young and old. If tooth decay is present in your mouth, the dental professionals at Softouch Dental Care will remove the decay and fill it with a tooth-colored material such as a composite resin or stronger porcelain material.

Chips, Gaps, Uneven Spaces

If your teeth are jagged, chipped or unevenly spaced, these common problems can be corrected with dental bonding. With this procedure, a tooth-colored bonding material is applied to your tooth and hardened with a special curing light. Bonding is ideal for minor flaws, while porcelain veneers are used for cosmetic problems that cannot be fixed with bonding.

Cracked, Fractured or Missing Teeth

If you have a tooth that is so badly damaged that it will not hold a filling, a dental crown can be used to reinforce your tooth and protect its surface. If you are missing a tooth or had to have a tooth pulled, it is important that you replace that tooth, as your other teeth will shift toward the empty space. A missing tooth can be replaced with a false tooth or held in place with a dental bridge or dental implant.

If you have an unappealing smile from any of these common dental problems, our cosmetic dentistry services can give you a rejuvenated, aesthetically enhanced smile that can boost your self-esteem and your overall well-being.
