One of veneers’ most attractive qualities is that they are made of thin shells of ceramic that mimic tooth enamel’s translucent appearance. Since we carefully match the shade of your veneers to match surrounding teeth, you can be confident they will provide a natural-looking, seamless appearance.
Veneers Customized for Your Smile
Preparing your veneers in Fairfield, CT, starts with mess-free digital impressions to ensure your restorations closely match the shape of surrounding teeth. We also remove a thin layer of tooth enamel so that when we place the veneers on your teeth, they sit snugly along your gum line for a natural appearance.
Another way we ensure you are happy with the results is to involve you from your consultation to the final placement of your veneers. Before Dr. Vayner begins any work, he will ask you about your expectations, answer your questions, and explain the process for getting dental veneers.

In addition to veneers, we also offer Lumineers, dental bonding, and porcelain crowns which are all excellent options for improving your teeth’s appearance.
Dental Crowns, Bridges, Inlays & Onlays
CEREC same-day crowns are a great choice if you appreciate the convenience of having your restoration completed in a single appointment.
The Process for a CEREC Same-Day Crown
We start by numbing the tooth so you’re comfortable and pain-free. Next, we prepare the tooth by reshaping it slightly and taking mess-free digital impressions. If you opt for CEREC, we mill your final crown here at our Fairfield, CT, dental office while you wait.
We offer CEREC same-day dental crowns and traditional lab-made crowns, which are both excellent options. Our lab-made crowns use the highest-quality materials and are ideal for patients who prefer multiple appointments over a single two-hour appointment.
A lab-fabricated crown takes about 2–3 weeks, and when it’s ready, you’ll return to our dental office so we can check it for fit and cement it securely to your tooth.
Why We Recommend Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a fixed prosthetic that protects cracked, damaged, discolored or broken teeth and creates a natural-looking, lasting result. Using a high-quality dental crown offers numerous benefits:
- Preserves natural tooth structure
- Protects a very damaged or broken tooth
- Strengthens a worn tooth
- Conceals a discolored tooth
- Supports dental bridgework
Do You Need a Same-Day Dental Crown?
Whether you want a CEREC same-day crown to reduce the number of visits to our office or prefer a traditional crown made in a custom dental lab, we would be happy to help you. Please call Jack Vayner, DDS, to schedule a convenient appointment at our Fairfield, CT, dental office.
Dental Exams & Cleanings
We follow the American Dental Association’s recommendation that preventive exams and teeth cleanings occur every six months or as the dentist recommends. These services at Vayner Family Dentistry in Fairfield, CT, help us prioritize your family’s dental needs, regardless of your oral health goals.
Preventive Dental Exams
Dr. Vayner thoroughly evaluates the condition of your teeth, gums, jaws, and overall oral health. He checks for signs of cavities, tooth decay, or periodontal disease, and if he needs a more in-depth view, he may recommend an x-ray of your mouth.
If he detects an issue, he will discuss with you the need for a filling, tooth replacement, fluoride, or other procedures as needed.
Expert Teeth Cleanings with Our Hygienist
A teeth cleaning with one of our skilled dental hygienists takes about 30–40 minutes and includes the following:
- Checking your gums for signs of periodontal disease
- Removing plaque and tartar on your teeth and at the gumline using high-quality equipment
- Polishing your teeth to remove surface stains
- Reviewing preventive measures and tips for improving your brushing and flossing skills
- Reviewing your diet and explaining how it affects your teeth and gums
If we find evidence of gum disease, our hygienist will recommend the appropriate periodontal treatment depending on how advanced it is.
Are You Due for Your Next Teeth Cleaning?
Dental exams and teeth cleanings are most beneficial when scheduled regularly every six months. If you are due for your next dental checkup, please call our Fairfield, CT, dental office to schedule an appointment.
Implants are dental appliances with a screw-shaped base of titanium embedded into your jawbone. A dental implant is a fixed and permanent solution because it replaces a missing tooth root.
Once the area heals following implantation, a prosthetic crown is affixed, filling the space left by a missing tooth and rejuvenating your smile!
To qualify for an implant, patients must have healthy gums and adequate jaw bone density to support the screw-shaped base. Wondering if you’re a candidate? Call us today, and we’ll be happy to assess your unique oral health situation!
Benefits of Dental Implants
There are many benefits to replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant in Fairfield, CT:
- Looks and feels like a natural tooth
- Reduces jaw bone loss
- Lasts a lifetime with proper care
- Boosts your self-esteem and speech clarity
- Restores comfortable chewing function
- Protects surrounding teeth from shifting and overuse

Cavities are highly preventable but still very common. At Jack Vayner, DDS, we offer tooth-colored fillings, also called composite fillings, that are very strong and durable.
Benefits of Composite Tooth Fillings
One benefit our patients appreciate about these fillings is that they mimic the appearance of tooth enamel. Because we match the shade of the filling to your smile, we can create an invisible, seamless tooth repair.
We commonly use tooth-colored filling material to restore a decayed tooth or to improve a tooth’s appearance with cosmetic bonding. Because the material blends seamlessly with your smile, we also use it to create composite veneers, also called direct veneers.
The Process for Getting Composite Fillings
Before placing your filling, we use a strong local anesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable and pain-free throughout the procedure. Next, we remove any bacteria and decay from the affected area.
You and Dr. Vayner choose a shade of white that matches the surrounding teeth, then places the material in the tooth. Another benefit of composite fillings is that we can preserve structure by bonding the material directly to the prepared tooth’s surface.
The final steps are shaping and smoothing the filling for a natural appearance, hardening it with a special curing light, and polishing it to give it a natural sheen.
