At Apex Dental in Northborough, Dr. Robert Gauthier offers patients porcelain veneers as an option for correcting the appearance of chipped, damaged or slightly crooked teeth that are in the smile zone. Porcelain veneers can provide beautiful, natural looking and long lasting results with proper oral health care, including regular visits to Dr. Gauthier for preventive care.
Porcelain veneers provide patients with the smile they desire and are expertly crafted to fit in with the rest of their natural teeth. Many patients will choose porcelain veneers when looking to improve the appearance of the front teeth, or those that are seen most prominently when smiling.
Dr. Gauthier will evaluate each patient and provide digital images of what their restorations will look like when complete using digital technology. Porcelain veneers will be custom made from digital 2-D and 3-D images using CEREC technology. In most cases, patients will receive their custom made restoration the same day- no more waiting and having to wear temporaries!
As an alternative to porcelain veneers, Dr. Gauthier also offers tooth bonding for patients who want to cover a chip or crack in a tooth that is noticeable when smiling. Dr. Gauthier is an experienced cosmetic dentist and can offer patients excellent results with this more cost effective alternative when it is a suitable option.
Tooth bonding is called a “direct restoration” and is a process where a cosmetic resin material is attached directly to the tooth. Little or no tooth preparation is needed for the bonding procedure. The material is matched to a patient’s natural tooth color, providing aesthetically appealing results for correction of minor cosmetic issues.
