Carefully Planning Treatment With Veneers

When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, different patients will have different experiences with treatment. This is because a successful procedure should be personalized to make sure that you see the results that you desire. This is true even when patients come in for the same kind of procedure. When it comes to care with porcelain veneers, our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office will provide restorations that are made to address your specific esthetic concerns. In addition to providing the right improvements, personalized veneers can do a better job preserving a natural look. Their slim design makes it easier to provide treatment while minimizing changes to your tooth structure. Despite their size, they are stronger than you may expect, allowing them to maintain their appearance for many years. (more…)

Holding Dentures With Dental Implants

If you are looking into your first set of dentures, or if you are growing tired of having problems with loose dentures, you can be eager to learn about alternative approaches to prosthetic dental work.

Having Trouble With A Loose Denture?

If your denture no longer feels as comfortable as it used to, or if it feels harder to keep it in place, you can be understandably concerned. After all, your prosthetic has an important task – it can provide beneficial cosmetic improvements, and it can make routine dental functions easier. People who have removable dentures may grow uncomfortable over time because of jawbone deterioration. Without the stimulation from the roots of your teeth, the bone can lose density, and that can affect the fit of your restoration. With a dental implant-held denture, you can put this issue behind you. Our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office is prepared to help if you are bothered by a loose denture, or if you are looking into your first full prosthetic arch. (more…)

Fortunately, you can come to your Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist for help with your cosmetic concerns. A professional whitening treatment can remove stains that have made you self-conscious about the way you look. With the right procedure, you can enjoy a big confidence boost! (more…)
