Do misshapen or chipped teeth have you hiding your smile? Are gaps between teeth or stains keeping you from smiling, too? Even if teeth are straight, there are other smile concerns that orthodontics can’t fix, but here at My Creative Dentist, our Greenwich cosmetic dentists can provide you with veneers that will give you the confidence to smile again.

Here at My Creative Dentist, either of our Greenwich cosmetic dentists, Dr. Greenberg or Dr. Yeterian, will speak with you and conduct a thorough examination. They’ll determine what work will be needed to reach the smile you desire. Veneers are thin porcelain fixtures that rest over the tooth and are natural in appearance. Depending on where the work is done, the veneer may be affixed to the front of the tooth or over the complete tooth. This option is great if you wish to make minor adjustments to your smile without going through the rigorous and time-consuming procedures associated with orthodontics or if your concerns rest in the color or appearance of the tooth. Porcelain veneers can be applied to the entire mouth, a group of teeth, or even a single tooth if desired. Your visit with either Dr. Greenberg or Dr. Yeterian will help determine which teeth will need veneers in order to create the most seamless smile.
For smaller corrections, dental bonding may be your solution. This procedure is similar to veneers in that it helps cover up and alter tooth appearance, only dental bonding uses a tooth-colored resin, that is then hardened with a special light, that hides imperfections. Dental bonding and veneers can fill gaps between teeth, fill cracks in teeth, replace areas of tooth removed due to decay, lengthen teeth, alter the shape of teeth, as well as alter the appearance of the tooth. Here at My Creative Dentist, we have the solutions to solve your smile’s issues. Our Greenwich cosmetic dentists are dedicated to providing comprehensive and individual care to each and every patient.
Your root canals can become problematic when they get infected and inflamed. There are several possible causes for this but the solution is usually the same: root canal therapy. But before you picture a scary and unpleasant procedure, My Creative Dentist wants to assure you that if you need root canal therapy, our Greenwich dental practice will perform it in a comfortable environment and that in all likelihood you will feel little or even no pain at all during the process. Our dentists, Dr. Masis Yeterian Jr. and Dr. Richard Alan Greenburg, are highly qualified and experienced in root canal therapy.
Greenwich Dental Care
Certainly it is possible to have a root canal problem without feeling any pain at all, but the most obvious sign indicating a need for root canal is pain, typically severe pain. Sometimes it is more acute when you try to eat. In addition to pain, a tooth that is sensitive to hot or cold can also indicate a root canal problem. Other signs you should be aware of are having swollen or tender gums, discoloration or darkening of your tooth, or a pimple on your gums that is persistent or that is recurring. Experiencing any of those symptoms should motivate you to call our Greenwich dental practice to schedule an appointment. Having one or more of those symptoms does not ensure that you are dealing with a root canal issue, but it is cause to be examined.
If you are examined and a diagnosis of root canal infection is determined, root canal therapy will usually be the recommended treatment. Sometimes, if the infection is particularly severe, you will be given a prescription for an antibiotic to take in advance of the procedure. When you come to our Greenwich dental practice for your root canal therapy, the process will generally require two visits along with a third for fitting your dental crown. You will receive a local anesthetic before the procedure begins. Our dentist will drill away the top portion of the tooth to gain access underneath. The damaged pulp, nerve, and any debris will be removed and the infected area will be cleaned thoroughly. At this stage, the tooth no longer has feeling and so any pain you were feeling from the infection should now be eliminated. The remainder of the work is centered around the creation of your permanent crown.
Root canal therapy at our Greenwich dental practice is a great way to save your natural tooth while eliminating the pain and discomfort you were feeling from the infection of the root canal area.
