Cosmetic Dentist in Farmington, CT

Patients seeking cosmetic dentistry in Farmington, CT know that they can trust Dr. Thomas G. Peters to provide them with exceptional care backed by years of experience and extensive training. As a cosmetic dentist in Farmington, he is also a Master of the Academy of General Dentistry, he is among a prestigious two percent of dentists in America to earn this designation.

Dr. Peters offers the following cosmetic dentistry solutions to patients in Farmington and the surrounding areas:

Teeth Whitening

With Zoom! Teeth Whitening, Dr. Peters can effectively eliminate years of stains from your teeth, revealing the healthy, brilliantly white enamel beneath. Even persistent stains – including those caused by coffee, red wine, tea, and tobacco – are erased with the help of customized trays and powerful teeth whitening formula that blasts away stains deep below the tooth’s surface.

You can choose from in-office or at-home whitening trays, both of which will produce outstanding and longer-lasting results than kits sold in stores. Individuals who choose to whiten their smiles in-office can expect to see a dramatic change in their smile in about an hour, whereas, those who prefer to whiten their teeth at home will see a clear improvement within two weeks.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are ultra-durable, ultra-thin layers of dental porcelain that are carefully bonded to the visible surfaces of your teeth. They are capable of masking a variety of aesthetic flaws, including chips, cracks, uneven spacing, discoloration, and uneven size or shape. Porcelain veneers can typically be placed in as few as two visits to our office, making them an ideal solution for patients looking for a quick cosmetic dentistry solution.

As a permanent, non-reversible option, porcelain veneers are designed to create a natural, healthy-looking smile, and can be applied to as many teeth as you prefer. Their ability to resist stains is much greater than regular tooth enamel, but it is important to take steps to keep your veneers looking bright and beautiful, as they can become discolored over time if you’re not careful.

Porcelain Crowns

If you have a damaged or severely decayed tooth, a porcelain dental crown can be used to cover your entire tooth. Whether caused by poor oral hygiene, facial injury, or even a crack or chip, dental crowns offer structural integrity and a lifelike appearance. The porcelain material that is used to craft your custom crown will ensure a natural look and years of durability.

Using dental crowns, Dr. Peters can provide strength to a natural tooth and seal off any areas to prevent infection from reoccurring. You’ll begin to notice just how quickly you can return to normal functionality after receiving your restoration, which will not only improve your appearance but increase your confidence as well.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

If a cavity is present, there’s no need to worry about receiving a filling that will shine a spotlight on your dental work. Instead, Dr. Peters will use composite resin, which is a tooth-colored material that is shaded to match your enamel, to repair teeth following treatment for a cavity.

Not only will it seal the tooth and protect against future infection and tooth sensitivity, but it will blend in with your smile, making it almost impossible for anyone to notice that you have a filling. Using composite resin, it eliminates potential health risks and creates beautiful, healthy-looking smiles.

Whether you are looking to give your smile a quick boost with teeth whitening or are in need of a custom solution like veneers or crowns, cosmetic dentistry is a great way to restore your smile, improve your appearance and boost your confidence levels. Farmington Valley Dental is your premier destination for cosmetic dentistry that not only meets your expectations but exceeds them.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

Is Cosmetic Dentistry Expensive

You don't have to be rich to invest in the smile of your dreams. The diversity of cosmetic treatments available means there's a solution to fit your budget. Your cosmetic dentist in Farmington, Dr. Thomas G. Peters, will learn more about your goals and budget to create a personalized treatment plan. Dr. Peters accepts various payment methods to keep his services affordable, like a monthly payment plan through a third-party financing company.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?

Every situation differs, so there's no way to know how long the process will take until Dr. Peters first examines your mouth. During your initial consultation, he may find you need a little prep work. Your teeth and gums must be healthy before any elective services. After any preliminary treatments, you can get started on your smile transformation.

Dr. Peters will explain how long you can expect the process to take. Some procedures only require 1-2 appointments, while others may take several months, like Invisalign.

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Every procedure has a different lifespan and several factors can affect the duration of your results. No matter the procedure, you can get the most from your investment by committing to good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss every night. Limit your consumption of sugars and starches to reduce your risk of decay. Moderate hard and chewy foods. It's best to stop any bad habits, like smoking, crunching ice, or chewing on your fingernails. Schedule a cleaning and checkup with your dentist every 6 months to keep your dazzling smile healthy and beautiful.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Your comfort is always Dr. Peter's priority. Depending on your treatment plan, he may use numbing medication to block any pain. At most, you may feel some pressure or vibrations. Some procedures can make your mouth sore for a few days after the effects of any numbing medications dissipate. You can manage any tenderness with an OTC pain reliever and eating soft foods. Dr. Peters will review any additional aftercare instructions.

Can Teens Benefit from Cosmetic Dentistry?

Many teens are candidates for cosmetic dentistry; however, some procedures aren't durable for teenagers. Dr. Peters will examine their mouth and learn more about their concerns to determine if cosmetic dentistry is right for your child. He will help them achieve a beautiful, confident smile to be proud of.
