Cosmetic DentistryCosmetic Dentistry Can Change Your Life
Self-improvement is a positive attribute even when it comes to your smile. There’s no reason why improving your appearance should be viewed as superficial or unnecessary. We want to be our best in all aspects of who we are. Cosmetic dentistry is an investment you make in yourself. Many people aren’t expressing themselves and reaching their full potential because they’re self-conscious about physical imperfections. Covering your mouth and not smiling is no way to live life to the fullest. After undergoing a cosmetic dental procedure our patients report that they smile more and enjoy improved confidence in social and professional situations. A simple cosmetic dental procedure can create a chain effect that can transform your life.
At West Hill Family Dental we offer the most sought-after cosmetic dental procedures. If you’re looking for a cosmetic dentist in Rocky Hill CT you’ve found the right place.
VeneersManufactured from medical-grade ceramic, dental veneers are made individually for each patient to resemble natural teeth. They look very realistic and can resolve a number of cosmetic problems. People with cracked, stained, or damaged enamel,are all good candidates for veneers. Veneers are applied to the front of each tooth using a dental adhesive. To learn more about veneers, click here.
Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening can be performed comfortably, and in as little as one visit. Teeth whitening should occur after plaque, tartar and other debris are cleaned from the surface of each tooth. The process lightens the patient’s teeth several shades until they are white and bright. Teeth become gradually stained over the years from food, drink, medication, and smoking. Teeth whitening can spur new and better habits. To learn more about our teeth whitening services click here.
Cosmetic BondingCosmetic bonding refers to the repair of decayed, damaged or discolored teeth using material that resembles the natural color of tooth enamel. The decay on your tooth will be removed and the bonding will be applied to the tooth’s surface and then sculpted into the right shape. Finally, its cured with a high-intensity light. Cosmetic bonding effectively covers damaged teeth and gives an appearance of a healthy tooth – which it will be after the procedure. Bonding is one of the least expensive cosmetic dentistry procedures available to patients with tooth decay, chipped, or cracked teeth.

What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is more than just teeth whitening. Dr. Hemphill is able to transform your teeth’s shape, color, alignment, fill in gaps and discreetly restore decayed or damaged teeth with tooth-colored fillings. With advancements in cosmetic dentistry, it is now possible for patients to achieve nearly perfect teeth with enhancements that are virtually undetectable to friends, family, and peers.
Good Candidates for Cosmetic Dentistry
If your healthy teeth have imperfections you would prefer to change to enhance your smile, you may be a good candidate for cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is not meant to change your overall appearance. The aim is to provide a positive change that compliments the health and natural appearance of your teeth. There are several reasons to choose cosmetic dentistry:
- Affordable – Cosmetic dentistry is now very affordable allowing you to achieve the look you deserve without breaking the bank.
- Improves Health – Although the procedures are considered purely cosmetic, they have a big impact on your overall health. Teeth and other oral problems can negatively impact your dental and overall body health. Cosmetic dentistry can address these problems.
- Improves Self-Image – Having an undesirable smile can really bring people down. It keeps people from having healthy social interactions. Simple cosmetic dentistry can give you a new outlook on life and an increase in self-confidence.
- Improves Quality of Life – Dental complications can limit your biting and chewing capability. Quality of life improves when your teeth function as they should and you stop concealing your natural urge to smile.
- Improves Your Appearance – The truth is, whether we like it or not, 90% of people judge someone’s appearance from their smile. It’s important to feel confident when you smile, and smiling releases positive hormones that make you feel good.
- Improves Work Performance – We communicate with co-workers with our mouths and our smiles. When you stop thinking about how your mouth looks and focus on your work, overall performance increases.
What Our Patients Say
West Hill Family Dental has been serving my entire family for 10 years. They have always been great and treat us like family. I will continue to use them because of the high level of care and comfortable atmosphere.
Today was my first visit with West Hill Family dental. The staff was awesome! So warm and welcoming! I felt at home the moment I walked in the door. Melissa (hygienist) was awesome and very sweet. Dr. Hemphill was very personable. I am a nervous Nelly with the dentist but they really helped me feel comfortable.
"Going to the Dentist," isn't something most folks look forward to. Fortunately, the Team at West Hill Family Dental makes that experience an enjoyable event with a friendly, thoughtful and genuinely concerned approach to both routine care and one-off emergencies. The atmosphere is relaxed and positive; everything from scheduling to changes is accommodated with little fuss and a genuine enthusiasm to see you at the next opportunity. And the overall quality of care, execution and attention to customer needs are unmatched by most practices, and certainly by the cookie-cutter pop-ups that abound elsewhere. Highly recommended, family-oriented and very professional in every aspect of care and delivery - they're definitely on the list of recommendations to new residents and neighbors!
In the past I have had bad experiences with dentist and I have switch many times and I think I have finally found my forever home. Kim and Monica at the front desk are amazing they make sure that if you have any concerns, they will accommodate you in any way they can. They also socialize with you which makes visiting the dentist feel like visiting family. This is by far the best dentist I've ever been to and would recommend them to anyone.
