    The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

    Last updated 10 months ago

    Sedation dentistry offers many benefits to both patients and dentists. Various options allow you to receive the dental care you need quickly, easily, and without feeling anxious.

    This video explains the levels of dental sedation available and how they can benefit you. For short, routine procedures, nitrous oxide allows you to relax during dental work and recover quickly to return home after your appointment. For longer and more involved dental work, oral or IV sedation offer greater relaxation and pain control for patients.

    If you’d like to learn more about dental sedation and whether it could be right for you, contact your dentist at Dental Care of Stamford by calling (203) 803-1815. We offer comfortable, convenient dental care for children and adults six days a week. Browse through out website for more useful dental care information.

    Conditions that May Be Treated Using Dental Veneers

    Last updated 10 months ago

    Dental veneers are wafer-thin, porcelain shells that cover the fronts of your teeth. They can cosmetically enhance your smile for a variety of reasons. Your cosmetic dentist can tell you if you are a candidate for this minimally-invasive dental procedure.

    Discolored Teeth
    Teeth can become discolored for many reasons, ranging from staining caused by foods and medications to injuries sustained to the roots of the teeth. The natural aging process also contributes to discoloration of tooth enamel over time. Not all teeth respond well to bleaching, and those with sensitive teeth may find this procedure uncomfortable when performed repeatedly. Dental veneers provide you with a whiter smile in exactly the shade you want using stain-resistant porcelain that will last for years to come.

    Damaged Teeth
    Minor cosmetic damage to your teeth can be corrected with veneers. If you suffer from bruxism, years of clenching and grinding your teeth can wear away enamel and cause your teeth to look flat or shortened. Small chips and other damage can also detract from the overall look of your smile. Your dentist can apply veneers to as many or as few teeth as needed to correct shortening or damage and create an even, healthy-looking smile. Repairing the look of these teeth can improve the overall appearance of your face as well, making you appear younger.

    Crooked Teeth
    Dental veneers can correct some types of tooth misalignments without the need for orthodontic treatment. If your teeth suffer from minor crowding or spacing, your cosmetic dentist may be able to improve their look with veneers instead of braces. You can quickly transform your smile into one that is even and appealing for a lower investment of both time and money.

    If you have questions about dental veneers, contact the dentists at Dental Care of Stamford by calling (203) 803-1815. We offer a wide variety of dental services to ensure that you will love your smile. Check us out on the web to read through our blog and learn more about general and cosmetic dentistry.

    Understanding the Causes of Tooth Discoloration

    Last updated 11 months ago

    When asked to think of a perfect smile, most of us imagine straight, proportional, and shiny white teeth. This ideal smile can seem difficult if not impossible to achieve at times though, due mostly in part to the many sources of discoloration that we expose our teeth to on a day-to-day basis. Discoloration can be broken up into three basic categories including extrinsic, intrinsic, and age-related discoloration. While the latter is rather self-explanatory, its helps to note that other two are caused by stained enamel—from coffee, wine, or other dark beverages—and darkened dentin, which develops after early childhood exposure to antibiotics, fluoride, or tooth trauma.

    No matter what type of discoloration your teeth may be suffering from, you can brighten them up with help from your Stamford cosmetic dentist. Using at home or in-office products, the team here at Dental Care of Stamford can help you achieve that perfect white smile you've always dreamed of. To learn more about your whitening options, call us at (203) 803-1815.

    Understanding the Different Stages and Symptoms of Gum Disease

    Last updated 11 months ago

    One of the most important reasons to visit your Stamford dentist for regular cleanings is to avoid the unpleasant symptoms of advancing gum disease. Although it is one of the most common oral diseases in the United States, periodontal disease can be difficult to treat, especially as it advances. Here is a look at the different stages and symptoms of gum disease:

    Bleeding After Brushing
    The earliest stage of periodontal disease is commonly known as gingivitis. Gingivitis is characterized by swollen, red gums that typically bleed after you have brushed your teeth as well as bad breath. It is typically caused by a buildup of plaque between teeth that inflames and irritates surrounding gum tissue. Fortunately, gingivitis can be easily treated by your Stamford cosmetic dentist during one brief and painless cleaning service. 

    Tooth Decay or Loss
    If gingivitis is not properly treated by a dentist, the teeth and gums can quickly develop periodontitis -the second stage of gum disease. During this stage, bacteria inside the mouth infects the gums and teeth, causing them to pull away from one another. As the jaw bone becomes infected, it loses its ability to hold onto the teeth. Once periodontitis has advanced to the final stage of gum disease, teeth may have already fallen out, leaving gaps in the smile.

    Increased Blood Pressure
    When simple gum inflammation evolves into worrisome periodontal disease, the repercussions may not be isolated to the mouth. Other symptoms that one might experience as a result of gum disease are high blood pressure and possibly even heart disease. Once bacteria in the mouth enters the blood stream, it can find its way into the lining of the heart, where it exacerbates any pre-existing conditions and sets the stage for new problems.

    If you experience bloody gums after brushing your teeth each night, schedule an appointment with the professionals at Dental Care of Stamford. We can eliminate the inflammation in your mouth with a thorough cleaning and leave you feeling confident in your smile once more.
