A crown is a dental cap that completely covers a severely damaged tooth and restores your tooth's appearance and functionality. Crowns come in a variety of materials to suit your particular needs. This restorative dental procedure not only improves your teeth's aesthetic appearance, but also helps prevent bone loss and improves the overall health of your smile.More information
Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or the natural aging process. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at Monocacy River Dental Care can restore the brilliance of your smile. Our professional whitening techniques can brighten your teeth by several shades in a remarkably short period.More information

Professional Teeth Whitening with Opalescence Boost

We offer a variety of options for improving your teeth's appearance and we will work with you to determine the best teeth whitening treatment for your personal needs and lifestyle.

Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home with a teeth-whitening kit.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Monocacy River Dental Care is proud to be your Invisalign provider in Frederick, Maryland. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces for correcting dental misalignment or spacing problems. Your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports. Working adults are able to maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious. Invisalign Teen is specially designed to complement your adolescent patient's lifestyle, which also encourages their enthusiastic participation in a way that traditional metal braces simply can't match.
If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, then porcelain veneers may be right for you. Veneers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are permanently bonded to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come. Dental veneers can also provide relief from the tooth pain associated with worn enamel.
Are you experiencing a toothache? Have you chipped or broken a tooth? Do you need a professional dental examination to find the cause of your pain? At Monocacy River Dental Care we offer a comprehensive suite of restorative procedures from fixing a cracked tooth to root canal therapy. These services do more than just improve the appearance of your smile. Our goal is to provide pain relief, restore function, and ensure future oral health.
At Monocacy River Dental Care, we apply a custom, natural-looking crown (or "cap") in cases where decay or trauma has done too much damage to completely restore the original tooth. Crowns are an excellent alternative to extraction that offer long-term durability, protection from decay or cracking, and an improved, natural appearance.
A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could require tooth removal and cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.
Here at Monocacy River Dental Care, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, at Monocacy River Dental Care we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution digital images and x-rays that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, periodontal disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.
Emergency Dental Care in Frederick, Maryland
A severe tooth cavity, physical trauma, and other oral health problems can be incredibly uncomfortable, and we are here to treat dental issues that just can't wait for your regular check-up. Whether you're suffering from a painful cavity, cracked tooth, or a loose filling, please don't hesitate to give Monocacy River Dental Care a call! Research shows periodontal problems can potentially elevate the risk for other health issues, including diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Your health and comfort are our first priority. If you are in the Frederick, Maryland area and experiencing serious oral pain, call us directly at 240-815-6949 and one of our team members will schedule a consultation with you during our regular business hours.
If you need a surgical tooth extraction, we can save you the time and money of making an extra trip to see an oral surgeon. This procedure requires only local anesthesia and can be performed here at our dental clinic.
TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have symptoms like pain or a clicking sound, you will be happy to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Early detection and treatment are important because some types of TMJ problems can lead to a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or even more serious conditions.
