Going Maskless This Summer? It’s Time to Upgrade Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry!

TeamCosmetic Dentistry

If you’re like most Americans, you probably rejoiced at the recent announcement from the CDC about masks no longer being needed for anyone who has been vaccinated. There’s no clearer sign that we’re moving past the COVID pandemic in Fairfield, CT and throughout the United States, than the fact that we can stop wearing masks when we’re socializing at summer gatherings or running errands and start greeting people with a smile again—a real smile. 

There are, however, some people who didn’t mind having to wear a mask this past year because it allowed them to hide their smiles. Crooked teeth, chips, stains—face masks worked well to hide a multitude of imperfections. If you find yourself with mixed feelings about dropping the mask, it’s a great time to upgrade your smile with cosmetic dental work. Today’s cosmetic dentistry is more effective than ever and there are treatments available that fit into just about any budget. Here are some of the ways we can help you transform your smile this summer.

Teeth Whitening

A simple teeth whitening treatment can make a dramatic difference in your smile, and even take years off of your appearance! If stains and discoloration have accumulated on your teeth this past year, teeth whitening will give your smile a refresh. For the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time, consider in-office Zoom teeth whitening. If you have only minor stains or you’d prefer to whiten your teeth from the comfort of home, we offer at-home whitening treatments that use professional-grade whitening gel for impressive results. You can only purchase these kits from a dentist, which means they’re much more effective than those you can buy in stores.


Most adults aren’t thrilled with the idea of having to wear traditional metal braces while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth without the hassles of braces. The system is discreet, comfortable, and convenient. Instead of metal wires and brackets, clear plastic aligners are used to gently reposition your teeth. Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible, which means you won’t have to feel self-conscious about your smile even when you’re not wearing a mask!

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a great way to give yourself a smile makeover because they can be used to address a wide range of cosmetic issues, including chips, gaps, stains, length, size, shape, and even minor misalignments. While a full set of veneers on all of the teeth that are visible when you smile will give you dramatic results, even a single veneer on a tooth that is chipped or badly discolored can make a noticeable difference in your smile and your self-esteem. Your veneers are designed just for you in our on-site lab taking into consideration your facial proportions, treatment goals, and the appearance of surrounding teeth, yielding results that look natural.

Cosmetic Bonding

Bonding is an affordable option that can accomplish many of the same things as veneers, although they have a shorter lifespan. This procedure involves applying a tooth-colored resin material directly to the tooth to cover over or fill in stains, gaps, chips, and other cosmetic concerns. When applied by a skilled cosmetic dentist like Dr. Donald Miller, bonding will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Restorative Dentistry

There are also many restorative treatments that improve the look of your teeth in addition to the function, strength, and health. We offer natural-looking crowns, dental implants, dentures, and bridges to help you feel confident about your smile at maskless summer get-togethers and events.
