A Focus on Patient Satisfaction Improving Smiles throughout Glastonbury
If I could, I would give 6 stars for Dr. Balloch and his staff. I have been a patient for over 10 years and cannot imagine going anywhere else. In 2008, I had an accident that left three of my front four teeth chipped in half. This happened over Labor Day Weekend yet Dr. Balloch responded to the dental emergency call and cemented the teeth back on before school the following day. Recently, Dr. Balloch placed three crowns and one veneer in place of the broken teeth and I could not be happier. The porcelain teeth are highly personalized for my mouth and my smile now looks fantastic.
The meticulous and passionate work by Dr. Balloch has left me with a confident, natural-looking smile that I am extremely happy with. I highly recommend Dr. Balloch for any general, reconstructive, or cosmetic dentistry.
At the age of seven, a truck hit me ...broke away jawbone and busted out a number of my front teeth. I spent much of my life being self-conscious about my teeth and doing my best not to smile. Dr. Balloch and his entire staff worked with me to create a smile that I have been told "lights up the room". He demonstrated a commitment and level of expertise I have never before experienced. It is with gratitude and sincerity that I say I loved the experience and I love my smile.
A dental crown may be recommended if you:
Have Sufficient Remaining Tooth StructureA crown is only able to cap teeth that have enough healthy structure remaining. When teeth are too structurally compromised to support a crown, extraction is the only option.
Are Committed to Long-term CareThese restorations can last for many years as long as patients take proper care of them. That means brushing and flossing every day and visiting the dentist every six months for regular checkups.

Emphasizing Patient Care and Comfort We Put Glastonbury First
I myself have unfortunately had a wide range of dental problems over the years and Dr Balloch has rectified all of them with great skill and caring. In the specific instance where I needed cosmetic surgery to correct the accidental loss of front teeth, Dr. Balloch sprang into action to give me beautiful temporary teeth right away. Then he initiated a sophisticated process to provide wonderfully crafted permanent replacements. All through the process Dr. Balloch married the perfect combination technology, precision, and even a great artistic eye.View On Google
Outstanding. Hard to describe how beautiful my teeth look. I was a complicated case, and Dr. Balloch and his entire team was completely focused on ensuring everything worked perfectly. I had many extra visits (due to my own issues) and I was always given priority and extra care. The temporaries were so beautiful it was hard to believe the permanents would be even better - but they are. All issues resolved and I couldn't be happier. Tremendous service by the entire staff and amazing outcome. Highly recommend.View On Google
