If there is plenty of pad material remaining, you can put a piece of fine sandpaper on a flat surface and lightly sand the brake pad across that to remove a glaze. If the pads are really cooked, toss them. If the rotors have melted pad material on them (and it is often very hard to see), you can lightly sand the rotors. If you got the brakes really hot, the heat damages the brake fluid and new fluid is needed.
