Cosmetic Dentistry & Veneers
Be Confident with a Beautiful Smile
If you aren’t in love with your smile, you aren’t alone! Whether it’s discoloration, chipped or worn teeth, gaps, or other imperfections, many people would like to improve their appearance.
Dr. Jeff Cummings and his Waltham team are experts in cosmetic dentistry. Operating on the belief that everyone deserves a smile they’re proud of, they offer a range of cosmetic dentistry services to suit every patient’s unique needs.
What are Custom Veneers?
Custom veneers are thin porcelain or composite resin shells designed to cover the front surface of the teeth. They improve the appearance of teeth by changing their shape, size, length, or color to be more flattering to the face.
Veneers can also be used to easily correct minor dental problems like chips, gaps, cracks, and discoloration.
How Do Custom Veneers Work?
To ensure the best fit for custom veneers, a small amount of your existing enamel is removed to create space for the thin veneer. We then bond the veneer to your tooth using a specially-formulated adhesive.
Custom veneers are a popular choice because of their durability and beautiful, natural appearance.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic (porcelain) that fit on top of the front surface of a patient’s tooth. They’re extremely durable, stain-resistant, and have a natural appearance that very closely resembles real teeth.
They’re also highly customizable—their size, shape, and color can be specifically chosen to match a patient’s needs and preferences.
With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers can provide a beautiful, natural-looking solution to cosmetic dental issues for many years!
We used porcelain custom veneers to replace older, composite veneers on this patient’s upper front teeth and lower front teeth.
We replaced four of this patient’s teeth with custom porcelain veneers and drastically improved the overall look of their smile!
Clear Aligners for Teeth
Clear aligners for teeth are an alternative to traditional braces. They are able to straighten teeth and correct some bite issues without the need for metal brackets or wires.
Clear aligners are transparent, removable trays that are custom-fit to snap onto your teeth and provide nearly invisible coverage that can gradually shift your teeth into their proper position over time.
They’re an attractive and effective solution popular with both adults and young people alike!
In this patient case, it took less than six months to achieve the desired result with our clear aligners for teeth.
This patient was able to see this significant difference in less than one year!
Personalized Cosmetic Dentistry
Using a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments, we can get your smile looking younger, healthier, and more attractive. You’ll want to share it with everyone you meet! In addition to our porcelain veneer services, our expert team can assist you with:
Composite Custom Veneers
Made of a tooth-colored composite dental resin, composite veneers are applied to the surface of the tooth to change and improve its size, shape, or color. Like porcelain veneers, they are a great option for patients with minor cosmetic imperfections like chips, gaps, or discoloration.
Composite veneers require less—if any—preparation of the tooth’s surface and can be applied in a single office visit. With proper care, they can last for as many as ten years.
This patient’s left front tooth was improved with a composite veneer. The procedure needed no novacaine and took only twenty minutes!
Teeth can wind up stained or discolored over time due to age, lifestyle, or other factors. We offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening options to help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile!
Dental bonding is a minimally-invasive treatment that can help improve the appearance of chips, gaps, and other minor imperfections. Completed in-office in a single treatment.
White Restoration & Dental Fillings
White restoration refers to a process of using tooth-colored dental fillings to repair cavities, chips, or cracks in the teeth. They can also replace older metal fillings for a more natural-looking result.
