Sometimes a bite that is uneven or teeth that are crooked, stained, dull, chipped or even missing result in an imperfect smile that can cause a lack of confidence or lowered self-esteem. The good news is that nobody has to live with a smile that they don’t feel confident showing to the world. Our cosmetic dentist in Stamford at My Creative Dentist can remake your smile and get rid of the imperfections so you can proudly put your best smile forward.
There are several procedures that our cosmetic dentist in Stamford can perform to help your smile. A common complaint is that a patient’s mouth contains one or several teeth that are chipped, stained or cracked. Depending on the extent of the stain, crack or chip our dentist can fix the problem using either a porcelain veneer or crown. For surface cracks or chips on the front of a tooth or a stain a porcelain veneer might be the best approach. A veneer is a thin sheet of a porcelain material that is shaped to fit over the front of the tooth and cover the imperfection without damaging the underlying tooth any further. For more extensive repairs our dentist uses a porcelain crown, which is fabricated to exactly mimic the shape and size of the natural tooth and is placed over the tooth. First the tooth is prepared for the crown by having some of the natural material removed.
A very common procedure that our cosmetic dentist in Stamford performs is whitening dull or discolored teeth. Our practice can perform the whitening procedure in our office in just one visit or supply our patients with an at-home whitening kit that they can use in the convenience of their homes. The results of either of these whitening procedures are teeth that are several shades whiter. Our dentist can also restore injured teeth and replace missing teeth that have been lost to decay, injury or have been extracted through either a dental implant or the use of bridges or dentures. Our orthodontic programs will straighten crooked teeth and fix malocclusions. Don’t live with a smile you don’t like call our office for an appointment.
