Why Choose Comprehensive Dental Associates of Central Connecticut for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that we permanently attach to the fronts of teeth. Their purpose is to disguise aesthetic flaws, including discoloration, cracks, chips, and more. Each veneer is custom-crafted to complement a patient’s unique facial structure and blend in well with the surrounding dentition. The porcelain is highly resistant to stains and durable; with proper care, it can maintain its original beauty for many years. The entire porcelain veneer process usually takes just two appointments.

Metal-Free Restorations

Fillings, crowns, and other restorations can be made out of various materials. Metal restorations are quite durable, but they have the obvious disadvantage of clashing with the color of the surrounding enamel. We offer metal-free restorations, which are made out of tooth-colored resin or dental porcelain. Such restorations are durable and biocompatible, but the advantages do not stop there. They blend in seamlessly with nearby dentition and look natural enough that onlookers may never notice them.

Direct Bonding

During the direct bonding process, we mold a tooth-colored resin over a tooth. We shape it so that it disguises any flaws. Then, a special light hardens the resin. This treatment takes just one appointment and yields natural-looking results. It is a popular solution for patients who want to improve the appearance of just one or two teeth and who want a budget-friendly solution for their smile’s aesthetic issues.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth are not naturally bright white. Plus, daily eating and drinking can allow pigments to seep into the enamel and cause significant staining. If your teeth are looking a little lackluster, visit us to discuss professional whitening treatments. With our in-office procedure, you can achieve dramatic results in a single day. Our take-home whitening kits, which use custom trays shaped to your unique mouth, can deliver a similar outcome after just a few weeks.

Gum Recontouring/Crown Lengthening

Do you have excess or uneven gum tissue that makes your smile appear disproportionate? We can address this problem by gently reshaping the gums, cutting away extra tissue and revealing a greater portion of your teeth. We often use a laser for this procedure to maximize patient comfort and minimize recovery time. Gum recontouring may be a standalone treatment, or it may be used to make room on the teeth for crowns or porcelain veneers.

Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover is not a specific treatment. Rather, it is a treatment plan that aims to correct everything that you do not like about your smile. After we thoroughly examine your mouth and discuss your goals, we will map out a path to help you achieve a healthier, more attractive set of teeth. Your smile makeover might include orthodontic treatment, tooth replacement, veneers, whitening, or other cosmetic and/or restorative treatments.
