Dental VeneersWhen a patient desires a perfect “Hollywood smile,” he or she is more than likely going to need veneers to achieve it. It is one of the most popular and effective cosmetic treatments used in dentistry. Get a clear understanding of the veneers installation procedure and the benefits that you’ll enjoy thanks to this treatment. Then you can feel confident about making a decision about your smile when you visit Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA, for a consultation.

The Veneers Procedure
The process of getting veneers includes four main steps. At the initial consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and take X-rays to ensure that your teeth are healthy on the inside. If they are and you decide to go with veneers, your teeth will be prepped at that visit or a later appointment. Your dentist will then take molds of your teeth, which a technician will use to design each customized veneer out of porcelain material. The fourth step is to bond the veneers using white bonding cement and then shape them to perfection.

Veneer Benefits
The most noticeable benefit of veneers is how they make your smile look. It is an instant change for the better that improves the color, shape, and spacing of your teeth. There is no need to wait months or years for a more beautiful smile when you choose veneers—the entire process takes just a few weeks and a few visits with your Sudbury, MA, cosmetic dentist. Veneers also fix the front surfaces of the teeth when they are damaged and protect them. Porcelain is very durable and resistant to cracking, chipping, and staining.

Life with Veneers
You may be surprised by how life-changing it is to have veneers. You’ll have to get used to the newfound freedom of flashing your smile at every opportunity instead of hiding your teeth from the world. Many patients seek this treatment in advance of an important life event, like a wedding or business conference. Keep your veneers looking smooth, polished, and white by seeing your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and wear a custom mouth guard at night to prevent grinding. 

Schedule Your Smile Makeover
If you feel it’s time to pay your smile more attention, explore cosmetic dentistry with a dentist. Call (978) 443-5500 today to schedule a veneers consultation with Dr. Reina Garcia at Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA.

The dentists in Sudbury, MA, know their patients want to have better-looking smiles, but sometimes the cost can be too high. For veneersthat reason Dr. Reina Garcia suggests dental veneers.

Veneers are used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged.

Here are some things veneers can help with:

  • Stained teeth or discolored, due to poor hygiene, drinking coffee and tea, smoking, chewing tobacco or even antibiotics containing tetracycline.
  • Mishappened teeth, which includes: crooked, worn or chipped teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, uneven surfaces and uneven spacing, like overcrowdedness.

When you come into the Sudbury office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If he or she decides it is, then any underlying issues, like cavities, will need to be resolved first. Then a model of your teeth will be sent to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.

When your veneers finally arrive, your dentist will remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth then cement the veneers. Removing some enamel, which is an irreversible process, prevents your teeth are protruding. On the contrary, they will feel smooth, even and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.

Other advantages of getting veneers include not using very much anesthesia. Also, veneers have an impressive color stability which makes them highly resistant to staining. So you'll be able to sip your tea or coffee without any worries.

Veneer Care:

Brush twice a day and floss at least once before bed. It's important to prevent the buildup of plaque that may result in cavities and other serious issues.

For more information on veneers, contact your dentists in Sudbury, MA, by calling (978) 443-5500. Dr. Garcia will be more than happy to help you with your dental needs!

What your dentist in Sudbury wants you to knowcosmetic dentistry

If you are unhappy with the smile nature gave you, there is good news! You can do a lot to change your smile from dull to dazzling, thanks to cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry procedures can redesign your smile, giving you a brilliant smile, guaranteed to attract attention. Dr. Reina Garcia at Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA wants to share just a few of the many cosmetic dentistry services available to enhance your smile.

If you have small chips, cracks, enamel defects, or other small damage to your teeth, consider dental bonding. This procedure is easy, non-invasive, and usually requires no anesthetic. The bonding treatment uses composite, an innovative liquid resin that can be matched perfectly to your existing tooth color and shape. The composite is shaped perfectly and hardened using an ultraviolet light. The result: your tooth is whole again and the damaged areas are hidden.

If your smile is dull and yellow from stains or aging, consider a professional teeth whitening treatment which can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter. The dramatic results can last up to 5 years! The whitening treatment is performed in the office and takes about an hour. The result: a sparkling white smile that people will notice.

If you have large areas of damage, cracks, or just don’t like the look of your smile, consider porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin laminates of sparkling porcelain that are permanently cemented onto the front surfaces of your teeth. Porcelain resists stains, so your smile will stay white for a lifetime. The result: a dramatically enhanced, celebrity-perfect smile.

If you have gaps in your smile because of lost teeth, consider dental implants, the most natural looking and functioning tooth replacement available today. Dental implants are stable, beautiful, and will never decay. They become a permanent part of your smile, virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. The result: a fully-restored smile that looks natural and functions well.

If you want to give your smile a little TLC, consider cosmetic dentistry. For more information about what cosmetic dentistry can do for you and your smile, call Dr. Garcia at Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA today!

Your smile is often the first thing others notice about your outward appearance. Showing off your best possible smile can make face-to-veneersface interactions and first impressions more enjoyable and help you feel great about the way you look. However, sometimes it takes some help from your dentist to get to that point. Find out the facts about dental veneers and how they can help you achieve a smile you love with Dr. Reina Garcia at Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA.

What can dental veneers do for me?
Dental veneers can overhaul your smile to give you a new look. On the other hand, veneers can also provide subtle changes to your teeth. The results and effects of your veneers on your look depend completely on your preferences and expectations for your final results. Some of the most common issues corrected by veneers include:

  • chipped teeth
  • cracked teeth
  • discolored teeth
  • yellowed teeth
  • slightly misaligned teeth
  • slightly gapped or overlapped teeth
  • uneven teeth

Can dental veneers compliment other cosmetic dentistry services? 
Dentists often use several cosmetic dental procedures in conjunction with each other to provide the results you want. Veneers work well with many other cosmetic procedures, especially if you only receive veneers on a few teeth. While teeth whitening does not work on the porcelain of the veneers, it can help you whiten the natural teeth in your smile. Your dentist can then match the color of the veneers to your natural teeth. Other procedures like dental implants or bridges can fill in the gaps in your smile alongside veneers. Consult with your dentist to determine the best cosmetic procedures for you.

Dental Veneers in Sudbury, MA
A good candidate for dental veneers is in good dental health with no cavities or gum disease. Candidates should also have realistic expectations for their veneers and understand that veneers are a permanent and irreversible commitment. Veneers usually require two dental appointments about two weeks apart. This gives the dental laboratory enough time to customize each veneer for your individual teeth.
