Porcelain VeneersNeed a smile makeover? Dental veneers are thin, ceramic shells that fit over the teeth, and they can change your smile for the better! Comprehensive Dental Group, located in Stamford, CT, offers a complete range of dental services. Dr. Irina Pogosian and Dr. Thomas Ohlson of the Group are some of the finest dentists in Stamford, and the following information will help determine if you're a good candidate for veneers. 

1. You want to whiten your smile. 

Tooth staining affects people of all ages. There are several causes of tooth staining including poor dental hygiene, dark beverages and foods, tobacco use, certain medications, as well as several tooth enamel affecting diseases. Dental veneers can give you the bright white smile you've always wanted, and unlike your natural teeth, veneers resist stains remarkably well. 

2. You want to close a tooth gap.

Diastemas are gaps between teeth, and they can form anywhere in the mouth. These spaces may be caused by missing teeth, under-sized teeth, or bad oral habits such as thumb-sucking. Dental veneers are routinely used to fix diastemas by being placed over your teeth to create an evenly-spaced smile. 

3. You want to restore a broken tooth.

Fracturing a tooth is an unfortunately common phenomenon, however, dental veneers can be used to restore these damaged teeth. Veneers can cover these injured teeth and restore their appearance and function. A dental veneer covers the front of the tooth with a thicker section to replace the broken parts.

4. You want to fix your crooked teeth.

For some people, having a crooked smile can affect their self-esteem and confidence. However, you may not need orthodontic treatment to fix your crooked teeth—dental veneers can straighten your teeth without the discomfort and hassle of braces. Veneers are effective in covering up dental flaws and giving people the appearance of a perfect smile. 

5. You want to look years younger.

Your teeth play an important role in defining how old you look. If you want to look years younger, getting dental veneers is a good place to start. Veneers can enhance your smile and make you look younger instantly, which is the exact reason why it's such a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure among Hollywood celebrities!

Same-Day CrownsAfter plain old fear and anxiety over going to the dentist, lack of time is probably one of the biggest reasons that many people skip going to the dentist for regular check ups and dental cleanings or to fix a problem like a chipped or cracked tooth. But in addition to the cosmetic effects, skipping necessary dental repairs and restorations could also affect your oral and general health as a result. But it has never been easier or more convenient to get the dental care that you need. The dentists at Comprehensive Dental Group, Dr. Irina Pogosian and Dr. Thomas Ohlson, offer same day crowns for quick and efficient dental restorations in Stamford, CT.

CEREC Same Day Crowns in Stamford, CT

Thanks to developments in digital imaging technology, it is now possible for your dentist to design and create dental crowns right in the office without sending them out to a lab for fabrication. The crowns can be prepared while you wait, all in a single appointment.

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) same day crowns allow your dentist to take total control of the restoration process, saving you time and cutting out the need for additional office visits while providing a modern, high quality, natural-looking restoration.

How CEREC Same Day Crowns Work

Instead of taking a physical dental impression and sending it out to a third party lab, the dentist takes a digital image with a camera, which is then uploaded to a computer. The restoration is designed using the CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Manufacturing) program and then produced using an onsite milling machine. The crown is bonded in place, and your tooth is as good as new. And the best part is that in most cases, the entire procedure can be completed in as little as an hour.

Cosmetic Dentistry Offers Improvements for the Appearance of Your Smile

People choose cosmetic dentistry to repair a defect in their smile such as a malformed bite, or crooked teeth.  Whatever the reason, the ultimate goal is to restore your smile and bring it back to life.  Your dentist in Stamford is available to offer cosmetic procedures to help you put your best smile forward. 
 

Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening 

It’s not uncommon for years of drinking tea and coffee or bad habits like, smoking to gradually result in a discolored smile. With teeth whitening, eliminating stains and enhancing your natural white can produce dramatic results in as little as an hour.  In-office teeth bleaching performed by your professional Stamford dentist involves applying a bleaching gel to the teeth and activating the whitening solution with special lighting for approximately 30 minutes. 
 
Your dentist in Stamford at Comprehensive Dental Group can also provide you with trays, custom designed to perfectly fit your teeth so that you can continue the bleaching process at home with a less powerful gel. By using the gel and the trays on a regular basis, you can touch up and continue the bleaching process. 
 

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants can replace them and restore function to your mouth.  Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used in order to compensate for tooth loss.  The result is an enhanced smile, in addition to a more youthful appearance. The use of implants can successfully restore function to your mouth and successfully bring your smile back to life.
 

A Hollywood Smile with Veneers

If your teeth are cracked, stained, uneven or chipped, veneers may be the perfect option for transforming the most damaged smile.  These thin, porcelain shells are custom-designed by your Stamford dentist to perfectly cover and match your natural smile to mask most any dental blemish, including stains and cracks. Compared to many treatment options, veneers will last a long time, up to 20 years, and correct the alignment of your smile by covering damaged or misshapen teeth. 
 
Talk to your Stamford dentist at Comprehensive Dental Group about cosmetic dentistry, your goals for treatment, and which options may be best for your teeth. In as little as one appointment, you’ll be smiling bigger and brighter.
