Cosmetic Dentistry Services at ASE Dental

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that our dentist affixes to the front of the teeth for a flawless smile. Your veneers are customized to cover unwanted cosmetic imperfections including, chips, cracks, deep stains, and more. Dr. Bassford will create your porcelain veneers to enhance your teeth’s color, shape, size, or length to give you the smile you’ve been dreaming of. 

Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening can be used to eliminate deep stains from your teeth and brighten your smile. In as little as 30 minutes, our cosmetic dentist can help eliminate years of built-up stains and elevate your smile up to eight shades brighter. With our professional treatments, patients report feeling little to no sensitivity like they do with over-the-counter whitening products, making our in-house procedure safer and more reliable. 


With SureSmile, patients can discreetly straighten their smiles and correct other orthodontic issues. If you’re suffering from overcrowded, gapped, or crooked teeth, SureSmile may be the best treatment option for you. Dr. Bassford will examine your smile and oral health to create custom clear aligners to deliver precise teeth alignment with the help of advanced technology.

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns & bridges can restore the health and beauty of your smile. A dental crown is a custom cap placed over your tooth that protects and enhances your tooth. A dental bridge is typically used for patients who have suffered tooth loss. Depending on your case, Dr. Bassford will decide if one of these treatments is best for you. If not, she may recommend dental implants as an alternative. 

Dental Fillings

Dental fillings are used to protect a tooth that’s suffered from decay. Our tooth-colored fillings won’t only protect your tooth, but they’ll also blend perfectly with your natural teeth. If you’re suffering from a cavity, our Silver Spring dentist will restore your tooth before treating it with a cosmetic filling. 

Cosmetic Contouring

If you want to reshape your tooth’s enamel, then cosmetic contouring is a great option. Also known as tooth reshaping, Dr. Bassford offers cosmetic contouring to patients looking to enhance minor dental flaws. Whether you’re trying to eliminate stains, repair chips or cracks, or improve overcrowding teeth, cosmetic contouring can help.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
What can be done about chipped teeth?
Does insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?

Typically, most dental insurance providers won’t cover cosmetic treatments because they’re deemed a personal choice rather than a necessary medical procedure. In some cases, companies may pay a portion of the cost if cosmetic treatment is needed to complete a restorative procedure.

Otherwise, we work with CareCredit, a financing option that allows you to receive treatment for any dental procedure and allows you to pay at a monthly rate. Ask our Silver Spring dentist about this option during your consultation, and we can help you apply for it.

What can be done about chipped teeth?

If you have chipped teeth, our Silver Spring cosmetic dentist may recommend porcelain veneers. Veneers are a fast, natural-looking cosmetic solution that can cover several dental imperfections. Dr. Bassford will assess your tooth’s damage and help determine which treatment method will work best for your needs.
