"I have been coming to ADG for 12 years. They are so good that even now that I live two hours away, I still drive there for my dental care. Dr. Knowles is the best dentist I’ve ever had. He is officially recognized among his peers as one of the top dentists in Connecticut. My teeth need a lot of looking after and I only go to ADG for dentistry and cleaning visits. Dr. Knowles’ work is of the highest quality, and he treats everyone - patients and staff - with great courtesy and kindness. He is very gentle and patient and he makes sure my comfort is addressed, and he is attentive and responsive to my concerns. John is my hygienist. Like everyone at ADG he is friendly, courteous, gentle, and professional. He knows his job backwards and forwards and he listens to his patients and always does a wonderful job. They take every possible precaution to keep the office safer in a post-Covid world. The dentists have gowns, hats, masks and face shields and everyone in the office is masked. The waiting room chairs are distant from each other and the reception has plexiglas dividers. Everyone on staff is dedicated to the needs of the patient, and they are friendly and professional across the board. Every time I go there I immediately sense the incredible teamwork in the office. I’ve been recommending ADG to people for years: happy to do so on Google."- P.B. / Google / Jul 15, 2020
"Had a good visit. Technician was informed that I was on a blood thinner and was careful in the cleaning procedure. However, I did not like the brushed on fluoride because it did not dissolve and left a lingering bad taste in my mouth. I had to peak off the waxy residue and use mouthwash to try to get rid of the taste hours later than the treatment. My stomach felt upset too. Next time I will go back to the fluoride rinse."- B.C. / Facebook / Jul 10, 2020
A smile makeover can be helpful if you want to improve the overall look of your teeth or have multiple cosmetic or restorative concerns. You may be a good candidate for this treatment approach if you have one or more of the following dental issues:
- Stained or yellowed teeth
- Missing or severely damaged teeth
- Worn, broken, or cracked teeth
- Decayed or chipped teeth
- Misshapen or misaligned teeth
- Other dental concerns
Depending on your unique needs, your smile makeover may include treatments like dental bonding and contouring to repair minor imperfections or dental veneers to correct the shape and length of your teeth. Crowns may be used to rebuild damaged or decayed teeth, while bridges and dental implants may be fabricated to replace a missing tooth or teeth. At Avon Dental Group, we feature an on-site dental lab and offer custom restorations so they blend with your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. Whatever your dental needs might be, our distinguished dentists will work closely with you to personalize your smile makeover plan and meet your concerns and goals.
The Smile Makeover Process
Since each smile makeover is customized and will vary among patients, our dentists will go over exactly what to expect throughout your treatment plan, including the number of visits you may need. We can help you plan out your appointment(s) to complete all of the steps in your makeover. Local anesthesia may be used during some of the procedures, although other sedation methods may be included if you will need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. At Avon Dental Group, we utilize the newest technologies and the finest dental materials when performing smile makeover treatments. We also proudly feature an on-site dental lab and offer custom restorations so they blend with your natural teeth for a seamless appearance. Throughout your smile makeover, our dedicated practitioners will take every measure to help you feel comfortable and answer any questions you may have along the way.
After Your Care
As soon as your smile makeover is complete, it is important to maintain the health and look of your teeth by following a regular home oral care regimen (with flossing and brushing daily). Along with daily care, we recommend that you schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Avon Dental Group so our dentists can track your progress. With proper care and attention, the outcome of your smile makeover treatments can last for many years. Touch-up procedures every few years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your results and keep you feeling confident in your smile.
During your initial consultation, we will create a smile makeover plan that matches both your goals and your budget. The cosmetic treatments in a smile makeover are typically not covered by dental insurance, but some procedures may be partially insured. Nonetheless, our office will talk to your insurance provider to determine your specific coverage and determine any out-of-pocket expenses before getting started. Avon Dental Group accepts a variety of flexible payment options and is proud to partner with CareCredit to bring no-interest financing to our patients.
