Same Day Appointments in Shelton, CT



At Smile Dental Center, our patients are our first priority. Although we recommend making an appointment in advance if possible, we also understand that dental emergencies don’t always arrive on schedule. When you have a sudden toothache, damaged appliance, or another dental health surprise, we are here to help.

In most cases, we are able to accommodate same-day appointments that work with your schedule, to get you the fast attention that you need.


In an emergency situation


A dental emergency is any situation where you may lose a tooth without immediate attention. If you have an injury that knocks a tooth out of your mouth or causes a tooth to become loose or fractured, please come to our offices and we will see you immediately. We are able to treat most dental emergencies, and the cost is usually less than going to the ER.

Call 911 or visit the ER if you have an emergency that requires urgent medical attention during non-office hours.


Our patients come first


We always try to provide the best care for our patients, in a way that is convenient and accessible to you.

Whether you need to schedule an appointment for your child right after school, or you only have a short lunch break to come in — we understand how difficult it can be to fit your oral healthcare into a busy schedule. When you are juggling work, home life, and other obligations, it might be hard to find the time to make an appointment.

However, putting off treatment can lead to the damage getting worse. That is why it is important to respond quickly when you have a persistent toothache, swelling, or another dental issue. We want to make sure to address problems early on, to keep your teeth healthy.


Before your appointment


In many cases, our same-day patients are dealing with an immediate issue, ranging from persistent pain to a damaged crown or appliance. If you are experiencing tooth pain or swelling, there are a few things that you can do before your appointment to help reduce discomfort.

  • Ibuprofen is an over the counter pain medication that will also help to reduce swelling and inflammation.
  • You can use a cold compress, applied 15 minutes at a time, to reduce swelling and pain.
