Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments Create a Smile You Can Be Proud Of
Dr. Steven Balloch and Dr. Avinash Bidra understand how important your smile is to you. It influences not only how others perceive you, but also how you perceive yourself. A beautiful smile projects self-confidence, warmth, and vitality – making you look younger and healthier. We offer options such as porcelain veneers and teeth whitening at our Glastonbury office near Hartford, Connecticut. When combined, these procedures can provide a comprehensive smile makeover. The best part about this approach is that we can give you such a smile in an office visit or two. We invite you to read about some of the cosmetic procedures that we offer and then to contact our office to schedule a cosmetic dentistry exam. During this exam, we will honestly discuss your options with you, showing you exactly how you can achieve the smile you have always dreamed of having.
During your consultation, your dental goals and expectations will be discussed. Once it has been determined that you are a good candidate for dental veneers, we will prepare your teeth, so the porcelain veneers can be crafted of thin layers of porcelain. Dental porcelain veneers are custom made to match the size, color, and translucence of the patient’s teeth.
When you come back to the office a few weeks later, your veneers will be ready. In order to bond the porcelain veneers to your teeth, we will simply apply them with bonding cement, and cure them under a high-intensity lamp.
The GLO teeth whitening system and KöR Whitening can help revitalize and beautify your smile in just an hour and a half. Able to improve the whiteness of your teeth by six to eight shades after a single treatment, GLO is a quick and convenient way to improve the appearance of your teeth.
For patients who may not be able to afford porcelain dental veneers or do not have the time for a crowns procedure, dental bonding can be a good solution. Dental bonding not only delivers beautiful results, but is often accomplished during only one visit to our office. We will apply tooth-colored dental resin to the affected teeth, sculpting it into the desired shape and location. After the resin is hardened with a high-intensity light, your teeth will be polished and you will be given instructions on how to keep your bonded teeth looking beautiful for years to come.
A smile makeover is a customized dental plan that Dr. Balloch creates for your unique needs. Your smile makeover may include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, and even some restorative procedures. The goal of a smile makeover is to create the beautiful smile you desire and give you the confidence you have always wanted. We can also help you to budget for this beneficial treatment.
