The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that a person's smile speaks to who he or she really is inside. Do you think your smile reflects your real self--or not? If not, Drs. Bradbury and Amato, West Hartford, CT cosmetic dentists, invite you to explore the Cosmetic Dentistrypossibility of a smile makeover.

A Smile Makeover

Does the term "smile makeover" sound expensive or too Hollywood? it doesn't have to be. In fact, Dr. Bradbury and Dr. Amato feel that even simple aesthetic changes give you a smile you'll love without investing huge amounts of time and money.

Each smile makeover starts with a comprehensive oral exam to check for dental decay, gum disease, bite and condition of restorations such as fillings and crowns. The West Hartford cosmetic dentists take digital x-rays and photos as needed to get a complete picture of teeth, roots, bone structure and overall facial appearance. If teeth are healthy, the doctor proceeds with a treatment plan aimed at improving how your smile looks.

Cosmetic Treatments Offered

One of the simplest and quickest ways to brighten tooth enamel is professional teeth whitening. Superior to over the counter products such as strips and rinses, whitening with Drs. Bradbury and Amato changes tooth color by up to 8 shades. 

Safe and long-lasting, professional teeth whitening uses potent hydrogen peroxide gel that lifts staining organic material right out of tooth enamel. By limiting staining foods and drinks, stopping smoking and performing good oral hygiene daily, teeth whitening results last indefinitely.

Another excellent cosmetic service is composite resin bonding. Using an innovative material composed of glass and acrylic, composite resin fills small gaps and mild overlapping or repairs hairline fractures and chips. The resin flows on and hardens under a special curing light. Repairs are seamless and match natural tooth color perfectly.

When damage or discoloration is more involved, porcelain veneers improve tooth shape, cover stains and even act as "instant orthodontics," smoothing tooth alignment and disguising small gaps. Made of fine dental ceramic according to Dr. Bradbury's or Dr. Amato's specific instructions, veneers also strengthen tooth enamel.

Veneers are a permanent restoration because the West Hartford cosmetic dentist removes a thin slice of enamel from the front side of the teeth receiving ceramic shells. This painless procedure allows the porcelain veneers enough space in the mouth for comfortable chewing and clear speaking. Permanently bonded with tooth-colored cement, porcelain veneers stay in place for years with good dental care at home and at the dentist's office.
