Finding the perfect dentist is important, and Newfield Dental is the best dentist in Stamford CT. We offer regular cleaning and check-ups and specific treatments.
It is recommended to visit your dentist every six months—twice a year—for a cleaning and oral exam. Our dental hygienist will perform prophylaxis, a deep cleaning of the teeth and gums, to promote oral health. Your mouth will be thanking you for the plaque and stain removal and fresher breath.
However, if we noticed your teeth might need work, we have the tools and experience to treat them. Dr. Gong and Dr. Poon perform the following treatments or procedures:
Tooth fillings: We are a mercury and silver-free practice, as silver fillings have many disadvantages—the metal, which contains mercury, wears down and breaks easily, staining and not protecting your teeth. Instead, we do tooth-color restoration fillings. Not only are the resin onlays more natural-looking, it is also sturdier so the tooth remains intact. Plus, it contains fluoride to prevent decay.
Dental sealant: This simple procedure is highly effective at preventing tooth decay. A tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted on the surface of your teeth. It “seals” the gaps of your teeth, protecting the enamel from plaque and acid. The sealant lasts several years and reaches nooks and crannies that flossing and brushing cannot.
Dentures: Our natural-looking dentures are made of plastic, porcelain, or a combination of both, and are fabricated to fit you. You can choose between conventional—placed after teeth are extracted and gums are completely healed—and immediate—placed after teeth are extracted and gums heal under the denture.
Bridges: Bridges are designed to replace missing teeth to help you speak, chew and maintain proper alignment of your teeth. You can choose between permanent bridges (fixed) or removable ones. Bridges promote oral health, as missing teeth can cause gum disease or other harmful disorders.
Dental implants: Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth. It involves two phases. During the first phase, metal anchors, tooth root substitutes, are surgically placed in the jawbone. During the second phase, we will uncover the implants and place a small healing collar to attach to the new tooth.
Dental crowns: Dental crowns are a great replacement for damaged or missing teeth. We replace crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like natural teeth. We shape the porcelain-based tooth and cement it in to fit perfectly.
Tooth extractions: Teeth may need to be removed for several reasons—severe decay, advanced periodontal disease, broken or poorly positioned teeth. Tooth extractions can cause chewing difficulty, jaw pain, and shifting teeth. To avoid such complications, we may discuss alternative treatments or tooth replacements after the extraction.
Non-surgical root canals: Root canals are one of the most common dental procedures performed. This simple procedure will protect your natural teeth from the need for implants or bridges. If the center of your tooth, the pulp, is infected, we may suggest this procedure. The infected pulp is removed and the root canal system is thoroughly cleaned and sealed under local anesthesia.
