Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentist Hartford CTYour smile is one of the first things people notice about you. If you feel yours isn’t making a great first impression, we have the solution you need! We love helping our patients achieve the smile of their dreams. At JP Dental, we offer a wide variety of services to help you regain a smile you will love showing off.

If you have chipped teeth or need a few cavities filled, our natural-looking tooth-colored fillings may be all you need to regain your beautiful smile. For more complicated esthetic problems, porcelain veneers or even dental crowns may be a more appropriate solution.

Are you an adult who’s bothered by crooked or crowded teeth? If so, you probably dread the thought of spending years in uncomfortable traditional braces. We’re pleased to offer Invisalign clear braces that quickly and discreetly move your teeth into alignment.

Sometimes all you need to achieve a stunning smile transformation is a simple professional teeth whitening treatment. For your convenience, we’re pleased to offer several whitening options to fit your busy lifestyle.

Whatever your cosmetic concern, please give us a call so we can arrange a consultation with one of our doctors. During your consultation, we’ll talk to you about your goals for a beautiful smile and the ways in which we can help you achieve those goals.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants Hartford CTThe loss of just one tooth can lead to a series of events that can seriously compromise your overall oral health. Surrounding teeth can shift into the space left by the missing tooth, and surrounding bone can start to deteriorate. Replacing missing teeth is important, and dental implants are one of the most effective options available today.

Dental implants require the placement of a titanium replacement root into your jaw. Dr. Chung’s experience with placing and restoring dental implants allows him to perform the entire procedure from start to finish here at our Hartford office.

Every case is different, but once the implant has been secured in the jawbone, healing usually takes several months. We’ll be able to give you a better estimate once we’re familiar with your specific case. Once the bone heals, we anchor a replacement tooth like a crown, bridge, or denture to the implant.

Dental implants have changed the way we look at tooth replacement. Dental implants are secure and durable and should be cleaned and cared for in the same way as your natural teeth. There’s a lot to consider when thinking about having a dental implant placed. We encourage you to contact our Hartford, CT dental office today at JP Dental! Our dedicated team is looking forward to helping you achieve your goals. 

 

Invisalign

Cosmetic Dentist in Hartford CTIf you’re an adult with slightly crooked or crowded teeth but aren't interested in dealing with traditional metal braces, Invisalign may be just the solution you need.

Invisalign clear aligners are an innovative approach to correcting minor misalignments quickly and easily. After we determine that Invisalign is a good choice for you, we'll use specialized equipment to develop a comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan.

You’ll receive a customized series of aligners that are designed to gently reposition your teeth into a more ideal alignment. Simply wear the aligners for at least 22 hours each day, taking them out only for brushing, flossing, and eating. They are removable, but keep in mind that the longer they’re worn each day, the faster you’ll see the beautiful final results.

Invisalign clear aligners are comfortable and easy to wear. At JP Dental, we're happy to treat adults with mild misalignments. Individual needs vary, but the average length of treatment for adults with Invisalign is about a year.

If you would like to learn more about Invisalign or see if you are a good candidate, please give us a call. We’ll be happy to set up a consultation to discuss your case and decide if Invisalign is right for you.

Sedation

Sedation Dentist Hartford CTDental anxiety is very common and affects millions of people. The team at JP Dental is sensitive to your concerns, and we’ve helped many patients overcome their fears.

Our first priority is your complete comfort. We know that if you always feel comfortable with us, you’re more likely to keep up with routine dental visits. And those visits are essential if you want to minimize your risk for developing complicated dental problems.

We’re pleased to offer effective sedation options to allow you to get the important treatments you need. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is very mild and will put you in a relaxed and dreamy state. You will be closely monitored throughout your appointment, and all members of your team will do everything possible to make sure you are completely comfortable. The advantage of using nitrous is that there are no lingering effects. You can have your treatment done and then go on with your busy day.

If you need a little more help relaxing, one of our doctors can prescribe an anti-anxiety medication for you to take before you get to our office. When you arrive for your procedure, you will already feel more calm and relaxed. Just remember that you will need a driver to get you safely to and from our office.

If you have questions about any of our services, please don't hesitate to contact our Hartford, CT dental office today at JP Dental! Our dedicated team is looking forward to helping you achieve your dental goals. 

Tooth Extraction

Tooth Extractions in Hartford CTWe’re committed to helping you keep your teeth for a lifetime. With the help of a wide array of services offered by JP Dental, our goal is to do everything we can to try to save a damaged tooth. Sometimes, however, it may be in the best interest of your overall oral health to remove the tooth

There are several cases where our doctors may determine that extracting a tooth is the best option. A tooth may need to be extracted because it’s severely decayed, damaged by advanced periodontal disease, or compromised in such a way that it cannot be repaired. In other cases, a tooth may need to be removed because it’s poorly positioned in the mouth (such as wisdom teeth) or we are preparing you for orthodontic treatment or complete dentures.

Our doctors have performed many different types of extractions, ranging from the most simple to more advanced cases like removal of impacted wisdom teeth. You can be confident that no matter what type of extraction you require, you will receive compassionate care and support from our dental team.

Nobody likes to think about having a tooth extracted. But our relaxing sedation options and the genuine concern of a caring team will help make your procedure comfortable and stress-free. If you do think you need to have a tooth extracted, please contact our Hartford office to arrange a convenient appointment.
