Cosmetic Treatments Can Address These Dentistry Conditions and More

Damaged Teeth

Chipped and cracked teeth may not affect your oral health too much, but they can make you reluctant to smile. Veneers and dental bonding can hide these imperfections. 


Even if you've been diligent with oral care, you may notice a dull or discolored smile. In-office teeth whitening can effectively brighten your smile in as little as an hour. We also offer convenient at-home whitening treatments.

Missing Teeth

A gap can make you hide your smile. Without the proper dental care, missing teeth may also cause your jawbone to shrink, giving your face an aged, sunken look. Implant-supported restorations are the best dental solution for missing teeth and can keep your jawbone strong.

A veneer is a porcelain shell that attaches to the front of a tooth to hide aesthetic flaws. Porcelain is a versatile material that can be matched to the same color and shape as your teeth. This dental option can give you an even, brighter smile after just two visits.

Teeth Whitening

No matter how rigorous your dental hygiene is, it's natural to see discolored teeth over time. Consuming teeth-staining foods like tomato sauce, coffee, tea, and more can change the color of your teeth. Teeth whitening at our Hamden, CT, dentist's office can dramatically brighten your smile by several shades in just one short visit.

More About Teeth Whitening

Dental Bonding

During a dental bonding treatment, our dentists use a composite resin that matches the color of your teeth to cover imperfections. Cracks, chips, discoloration, and slight misalignment can all be concealed with dental bonding.

Dental Implants

When you lose a tooth, the gap in your smile can cause your other teeth to shift and your jawbone to atrophy. Dental implant-supported restorations are a cosmetic and restorative treatment that fill in the gaps in your smile. The implants serve as artificial tooth roots, providing an anchor for crowns, bridges, and dentures and keeping your jawbone strong and healthy.

Dental Crowns

If you have a damaged tooth, a dental crown can make it look like new and protect it from further damage. Crowns can also be used to improve the appearance of misshapen or deeply discolored teeth. Our CEREC® machine allows us to make same-day crowns, eliminating the need for temporary ones. We can create your custom crown and place it in a single visit.

Lynn Fasano

Affording Elite Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is not covered by insurance, and while most restorative procedures are covered by insurance, dental implants are not.

Sometimes, financial barriers keep dental patients from requesting procedures that would improve their confidence and appearance. Understanding this led our Hamden, CT, practice to accept flexible financing through CareCredit® – a third-party financing option that allows patients to break down cosmetic dentistry payments into low or even no interest monthly installments.

Another Top-Notch Review From a Hamden, CT, Patient

"I couldn't write a better recommendation if I wanted too. It was my three year old daughter's first time at the dentist and the second she walked in to the second she walked out, she was treated as if she was the president. The staff and everyone there was so good to my daughter and also myself and my wife. The dentists were thorough and informative and did a great job. I couldn't recommend a dentist office enough!" Lawrence Cifarelli

How Cosmetic Care Can Improve Health

While improving the appearance of your smile may be your priority, it should be noted that many of the cosmetic procedures we offer can significantly elevate your oral health as well. Let's take a look at how dental crowns and dental implants can heighten your health.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be purely cosmetic, as they can be placed on teeth that are too discolored to respond to teeth whitening treatments. That being said, the treatment can be considered restorative since it offers many health benefits. Placing a crown over a severely traumatized tooth can protect you from widespread health issues. This is achieved because a crown protects you from oral infection and gum disease, problems that can lead to diabetes, heart disease, and more.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are highly sought after by patients who want to transform their smiles by replacing missing teeth. They are the only restorative dentistry solution that prevents the dangerous jawbone atrophy that occurs as a result of missing teeth. If you do not replace your teeth, your jawbone will deteriorate, leading to both a sunken, aged appearance and the danger of further tooth loss. Tooth loss can exacerbate health issues while also making you more susceptible to more problems.
