Care Philosophy

Is cosmetic dentistry right for you? Cosmetic dentistry is a field of dental expertise that applies modern technology to improve the appearance of an individuals teeth and gums. You may have heard of such procedures as smile makeover or full mouth reconstruction. These are comprehensive services that cosmetic dentistry offers. These procedures usually involve a combination of different dental solutions, depending on the patients desired change in his or her teeth and appearance. Some of the problems that cosmetic dentistry addresses are: irregularly shaped teeth, faulty alignment, overbite or underbite, crowded or widely-spaced teeth, discolored or broken/chipped teeth, lost teeth, and other aesthetic concerns. Cosmetic treatments range from non-intrusive procedures, like teeth whitening or bleaching, to irreversible ones like the installation of a dental implant in the patients jawbone as part of a procedure for artificially replacing tooth loss. For those who want to have their teeth reconstructed to fix damage or simply to alter their regular shape in order to make them look more pleasing, cosmetic dentistry can offer some solutions. Cosmetic dentistry can also deal with tiny details, like artificially reshaping or restoring chipped, irregularly shaped, or discolored teeth through veneers. Veneers or laminates are very thin shells that look like a tooths enamel. These are usually made of porcelain and are planted in front of a persons tooth or teeth in order to correct imperfections. Norwalk Dental in Connecticut specializes in providing clients with such well-crafted porcelain veneers, as well as other cosmetic procedures. The use of dentures is also one of the main services under cosmetic dentistry. Another procedure involves porcelain crowns a kind of dental restoration used to fully cap a tooth or dental implant. This procedure is for those who want protection for their teeth or who desire changes that veneers cannot give. Tooth-colored dental bonding or fillings are used to repair decayed or damaged teeth, while dental bridges are used to merge gaps between teeth. And lastly, another modern technology often offered by cosmetic dentists is Invisalign, a brand of invisible teeth aligners that a person wears to straighten his or her teeth. Depending on the persons objective or desired result, one or a combination of these treatments may be recommended by a cosmetic dentist. This is where a good consultation meeting with an experienced and patient-sensitive cosmetic dentist comes in. Dr. Murray Bruckel, DDS, a cosmetic dentist in Norwalk CT, offers cosmetic consultation to new patients at his office. During this consultation, the patients options for attaining his or her teeth makeover or whatever goal he or she has in mind will be discussed. There will be a thorough examination of the patients teeth, soft tissue, supporting structure alignment, bite, etc. Information from this exam will go through careful evaluation. This will help Dr. Bruckel and his staff to more accurately access the patients needs. Payment options are discussed as well, so that there is a clear understanding prior to start of treatment. Dr. Bruckel of Norwalk Dental finished his internship and residency in 1973 and has been practicing dentistry since. He was invited to become a full-time partner in a prestigious dental practice in New York, but opted to practice in a smaller, more personal and caring setting.
