Cosmetic Dental Treatments: What Are Your Options?

While many treatments are implemented to improve upon a patient’s dental health, sometimes their cosmetic appearance can be equally as important. At our Stamford dental center, we have a multitude of treatment plans that will provide our patients with a smile they can be confident about.

One of the most common dental problems that many patients experience is the desire to have straight teeth. With today’s technology, there is no need for the classic metal braces that deter many adults from seeking out the teeth they desire.

Invisalign is an increasingly popular method that allows for patients to comfortably straighten their teeth. These clear aligners move your teeth little by little until finally, they reach a completely straightened position. After about 9 to 15 months, Invisalign patients experience the results they have always desired. With the help of one of our skilled dental technicians to mold your aligners, the perfect smile is in reach.

Along with a straight smile, many patients seek to achieve the look of perfectly white teeth. Restoring the brightness of your smile is a quick and easy process that eliminates yellowing and staining.

Known as dental bleaching, this process removes the stains from your enamel in just a week or two. Our dental office will provide you with a special bleaching agent on clear splints that are easy to apply. Patients of all ages can experience teeth that appear nice and clean from the magic of this teeth whitening service.

When a patient is suffering from extremely stained teeth, it is highly recommended that they consider porcelain veneers if they seek to improve their cosmetic appearance. Veneers are thin coverings placed onto the surface of the tooth that are versatile and durable. Crafted from the highest quality porcelain, our Stamford dental center will ensure much longevity from our veneers.

Inlays and onlays are another example of the advanced dental services we provide to the Stamford, CT area. Damaged, injured teeth are susceptible to infections, sensitivities, and other ailments that make your mouth extremely uncomfortable. Inlays and onlays are similar to dental fillings, but provide much more strength to the injured tooth upon placement.

An inlay is a molded fitting that sits on the cusps of a tooth, typically in order to fill a cavity or address a case of major tooth decay. It restores tooth structure and allows patients to chew comfortably again.

An onlay, on the other hand, is fitted atop of a tooth’s biting surface. Similar to an inlay, the onlay is used for restoration of a damaged tooth. Both inlay and onlay procedures are quick and painless and will have the patient experiencing pain-free biting and chewing when complete.

In the case of a chipped, discolored, or cracked tooth, patients are directed to bonding procedures. This type of dental care restores a tooth back to its natural appearance with the use of a piece of plastic resin. The resin is molded to the desired shape and polished once it has set, leaving the tooth appearing as normal as possible.

Whether you are seeking to straighten your teeth or repair a dental injury, this Stamford dental center has what you need. We understand that the cosmetic appearance of your smile is certainly a top priority. If you feel as if restorative and cosmetic dentistry is right for you, take a look at the services we offer today.


While we take the steps necessary to open our practice to our patients, infection control has always been a top priority. Be assured we continue to actively monitor the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) so that we are up-to-date and compliant with any new guidance that may be issued.
