Glastonbury Cosmetic Dentist Enhancing Smiles
Showing off your teeth should always be a happy moment, not one that's tinged by shame and embarrassment. If you’re struggling with dental flaws, please reach out to our Glastonbury, CT team for the personal attention and high quality work you deserve. Our cosmetic options are designed to seamlessly erase stains, cracks, and other unpleasant imperfections leaving you with a smile that's every bit as radiant as you’ve dreamed of. Contact our practice today to schedule your first consultation with Glastonbury cosmetic dentists, Dr. Brad Heim or Dr. John Carroll!
Older patients are surely familiar with the traditional amalgam material that was once solely used to repair cavities. Today, Dr. Heim and Dr. Carroll are happy to offer a much-improved alternative – tooth-colored fillings. Made from composite resin, this treatment option can be closely shaded to match your natural smile for a more pleasing look overall. It’s also more conservative (meaning that we can better preserve the natural tooth), and comfortable, eliminating the presence of metallic materials that can react to temperature changes.
The placement of a tooth-colored filling only requires one appointment for patients from Rocky Hill and surrounding areas. After ensuring you’re appropriately numb, our team will remove decay from the tooth, clean the area, and then apply the composite resin into place. Once the filling has been precisely sculpted into a pleasing shape and hardened with a special light, you’ll be ready to return to your day.
Thankfully, gold and silver restorations aren't the only option for image-conscious patients any longer. Our doctors provide customized crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges, and more that have been precisely crafted from all-ceramic materials ensuring a beautifully natural appearance that feels great in the mouth.
All-ceramic restorations offer patients several valuable benefits including:
- The quality porcelain materials we rely on are so lifelike that they even have the same translucent qualities as your natural enamel, reflecting light in the same way.
- Because there are no metals present in all-ceramic restorations, patients with sensitivities or outright allergies can enjoy them just fine.
- All-ceramic restorations provide plenty of needed durability, and they can actually strengthen the remaining structure of your tooth/teeth over time. With the right balance of homecare and professional maintenance, they \ thrive for several years to come.
Veneers are often considered as the cosmetic alternative to dental crowns, covering the front of your teeth instead of the entire structure. For patients with smiles suffering from several aesthetic flaws at once, these wafer-thin restorations can be a godsend hiding years of discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and more under a newly gorgeous, movie-star appearance. They’re even more resistant against staining than your natural teeth, which means you enjoy the improvement for that much longer.
