Are you wondering if dental veneers are for you?

Dental veneers are specially designed, natural-looking tooth coverings that can be attached to the front of your teeth to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Dental veneers are made from either porcelain or a resin-composite and bonded permanently to the teeth. They offer a long-term solution to stained, damaged, or unsightly teeth.

As we will explain in our initial consultation, veneers are a popular treatment option for managing a number of different cosmetic dentistry concerns. Some of these concerns include broken, stained, chipped, or small-sized teeth. While some people choose an entire set of veneers, you may choose one or two to fix improve your smile. However, in order to create a more symmetrical smile, most people get at least six veneers fitted to their teeth.  We would love to talk with you about your smile and help you choose what will work best for you. You may have questions for us, which we will be sure to answer as we discuss your options.

Are there different types of veneers?

Usually, dental veneers are made of porcelain, however, composite materials are also used, and depends on the patient. Applying traditional veneers made from porcelain requires a longer preparation process than composite veneers.

To ensure a smooth surface for the veneer, the natural tooth often needs to be ground down slightly. By grinding the tooth down and removing some of the enamel, it is easier to apply the veneer. However, it’s important to remember that the procedure is irreversible, and once you have a veneer, you will require veneers for life.

When applying composite veneers, the procedure is a little different. While the tooth may need some preparation, it tends to be far more minimal than traditional veneers.

A key difference between these two types of veneers is the fact that traditional veneers usually require local anesthetic, while composite veneers don’t tend to require any anesthetic.

Are veneers different from dental implants and crowns?

Veneers are not the same as dental implants or crowns. Despite serving a similar purpose, there are different ways to fit a veneer and they have different results. There are big differences between the three types of dental solutions. Veneers cover the front of the tooth, while implants replace the entire tooth and crowns encase the whole tooth above the gum line. Veneers act as a covering plate on the tooth, whereas dental implants and crowns are more invasive. Although they do have some health benefits, veneers are more for cosmetic reasons. Dental implants and crowns have a cosmetic aspect to them but are more for health purposes.

The route that you and your dentist choose to resolve your dental needs greatly depends on your needs and the desired outcome. Are you getting veneers to improve your smile or save your teeth? The answer will bring you to a different set of solutions.

Contact A Professional

When you contact us for an initial consultation, you will have an opportunity to ask questions so you know if veneers are right for you. How long it will take, what the costs are, how to care for them, and how long you can expect them to last will be answered during this meeting. We can even show you a digital representation of what your new teeth and smile will look like!  This way, you know what to expect before we schedule the treatment. Please give us a call today to talk about how dental veneers can help you look and feel your best!

Consider Invisalign In Your Journey for a Beautiful Smile

When it comes to achieving a picture-perfect smile, it’s easy to feel like your teeth are inadequate. This is especially true if they aren’t as dazzling white or perfectly straight as those you see all over social media. As a result of this, it’s easy to struggle with your self-esteem and feel uncomfortable about your appearance.

The good news is that when it comes to most alignment issues with your teeth, most of the time it’s fairly easy to correct.

For instance, if your teeth are not as straight as you would like them to be, then you may have thought about getting braces to straighten them or using Invisalign to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. While most people have their teeth straightened during their teenage years, that doesn’t mean that it is not possible to have your teeth straightened once you’re older.

Until fairly recently, there was only one method of teeth straightening available: the use of metal braces. However, in recent years, thanks to advancements in 3D printing, a new option has become available – teeth straightening through the use of ‘invisible’ braces made from strong plastic molds.

Don’t settle. Get the best
Dental Partners of Boston is great. They fixed 50 years of mediocre dental work and my lack of braces as a child in short order. I recommend the practice without reservation. And their COVID preparations were fully over the top. I felt safe the entire time. No short cuts. Just great service and attention to detail.

What smile types can be corrected using Invisalign treatment? 

What’s great about the use of clear braces, such as Invisalign, is the fact that the new technology has been designed to meet the needs of varying smile issues. So whether you have an overbite, an underbite, or a crooked smile, Invisalign should be able to help alter it and move your teeth back into a straighter position.

Overbite: Upper front teeth close in front of the lower teeth Underbite: Lower teeth protrude past upper front teeth Crossbite: Upper and lower jaw don’t line up 

  • Gap Teeth: Extra space between teeth 
  • Open Bite: Top and bottom teeth don’t meet 
  • Crooked Teeth: There isn’t enough room in the jay for teeth to fit normally 
  • Generally Straight Teeth: When you just want small adjustments for a more beautiful smile Mix of Baby and Permanent Teeth: Beginning orthodontic treatment for children with adult teeth coming in among baby teeth

How do you know if Invisalign is a good option for you? 

When it comes to determining whether Invisalign treatment is a good option for you, please contact us to come in for a consultation. We will discuss your goals for your smile and advise the best course for you. We will help you consider the cost and the time the treatment will take to work effectively.

Invisible braces are great if you’re someone who gets self-conscious, as when they’re in place, they’re barely visible, hence the name. Most people have to wear Invisalign braces for between one and three years to see the finished result, however, some people only need to wear them for six to 18 months. The time period braces are required for is determined by how your personal type of correction is needed.

We will be happy to meet with you and answer all your questions about Invisalign invisible braces. Please contact us to request an appointment today.

Are You Hiding a Chipped or Broken Tooth?

A woman holds her hand over her mouth while taking a selfie. Caption: Stop hiding your smile! Contact us about fixing your chipped or broken tooth.

For all the wonders of modern dentistry, one of the biggest challenges dentists face in 2020 is trying to soothe those who feel unable or uncertain about receiving dental treatment. Many believe that certain dental problems are simply issues they must live with, lest they have to encounter extensive reconstructive work.

But the truth is, today modern cosmetic dentistry is more nuanced, exacting, and welcoming than ever. Through attentive care of a patient’s dental health, we can prevent major dental issues by resolving them while they are manageable. Modern dentistry can fix problems large and small, but the best path is to start when the patient is young. As the patient grows, the dentist can watch for signs of potential future problems and resolve them early.

Many people seem to believe that living with a chipped or cracked tooth is part of normal wear and tear, but that needn’t be the case. In fact, cosmetic dentistry can help repair or replace a chipped or cracked tooth with care, efficiency, and finality. Cracks or chips can happen to anyone.

High-quality service…
Rosaria S.

My ’emergency’ visit earlier today could not have been better. I was ‘fit in’ to a very busy schedule and was taken care of just as though I had been expected for an appointment. Everyone was personable and efficient and thoughtful. Dr.O’Toole came through…. yet again!!! THANK YOU.”

Cracked Tooth

There are three common treatments we utilize for cracked teeth. Veneers remedy minor tooth damage while dental implants and root canals are two treatments for major tooth or teeth damage and repair.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers help strengthen and cover cracks on the front surface of the tooth, while dental crowns remedy other crack orientations. The use of composite resin and laser reaction to help fill and seal a minor crack with care. Both procedures are quick, easy, and help completely resolve the aesthetic and functional issues of minor dental cracks.

Dental Implants

If your dentist feels the tooth is beyond saving, dental implants may be an option to protect against further nerve damage and infection. A periodontist will install a titanium post to the jaw and from there a dental crown to ensure the tooth looks and functions like a natural tooth. This can help completely restore your dental health and will thoroughly repair your functional dental strength.

Root Canals

A root canal is a thorough procedure in which protecting the health of your dental environment is a must. If the crack is too deep it may begin to affect the interior pulp, and that can prove to be a problem. Cleaning the nerve chamber and cleaning the potential infection will restore strength to your tooth and ensure no further complications are caused. The dentist places a crown on the tooth to replicate the natural whiteness of the tooth and strengthen its exterior.

Chipped Tooth

Chips are much more common than cracks, although they may be less serious.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is the process of using the aforementioned composite resin to properly mold and shape your cleaned tooth back to its natural state. This can help restore their natural look without intensive or invasive work. Cosmetic bonding is most commonly for faint chips.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are mostly reserved for chips that are deeper or require more work than simple composite adjustments. Dentists may suggest dental crowns if they can help to strengthen the original tooth. Additionally, dental crowns can look natural with composite resin. Of course, it’s hard to assess in the mirror if your aching tooth is suffering a crack or chip. For that reason, we would warmly recommend making an appointment with Dental Partners of Boston to speak to a professional. We look forward to speaking with you!

Discreet Braces for Adults

The world of dentistry has made massive strides over the last twenty years. We provide highly successful services such as adult orthodontics that have beautiful, long-lasting results. We continually add top talent to our team of experienced dental professionals so our clients get the results they seek. For this reason, we have been nominated Top Dentist in Boston Magazine more than once.

Our own Dr. Yael Frydman is a Boston Top Dentist who provides orthodontics for adults who want to straighten their teeth. Most alignment dental work takes place over the course of a person’s childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood. However, some adults may not have had access to dental care in their adolescence. Adults sometimes lack confidence in the way their teeth appear and therefore hesitate to seek solutions. It’s important to know that 1 in 5 of Dr. Frydman’s patients are adults! In other words, adult orthodontics is common.

However, braces themselves can be perceived as unfashionable and an inconvenient dental tool. We understand and empathize. Thankfully, we have many other alternatives available, including the best discreet braces for adults including Invisalign.

Highly recommended
Brian H.

Dr. O’Toole and his staff are extremely competent; they take the time to explain the process, their findings and options. They are also very pleasant and do not attempt any ‘hard sell’. I recommend them.

Discreet Braces

Almost 20% of those who wear braces are those making use of adult orthodontics care. With this in mind, there is no shame in wearing braces for adults to gain more confidence in your smile. But what options are there?

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign is a hugely popular and proven form of teeth adjustment, helping to straighten misaligned teeth in as little as six months. These aligners are clear plastic and custom-made for your mouth so they are virtually unnoticeable. Your dentist uses 3D imaging or impressions of your mouth to create the Invisalign aligners. The snap-on aligners fit comfortably within your mouth. They are, far and above, the most popular choice for discreet dental orthodontic care available today.

Clear Braces

Clear braces are traditional braces that offer clear designs. They are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces and provide all of the alignment force of metal braces. They are more than worth your attention.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are simply ceramic instead of metal brackets that help fix bite problems. As the brackets are completely transparent they allow the natural enamel of your teeth to shine through. The brackets attach with wires and rubber bands just like metal braces.

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces sit behind the teeth, allowing them to remain secure yet mostly invisible. They are a popular option for those who return for several fittings over the years.

Why Choose Dental Partners of Boston?

As a group practice, we have an exacting approach and high standards relating to all practices of dentistry. We understand the sensitive nature of dental work. We are very interested in helping adults improve their dental health and the cosmetic appearance of their smiles.

Ask anyone what the most notable signs of healthy teeth are. Undoubtedly, they will mention a bright smile and white teeth. This is because white teeth signify good oral health and contribute to how attractive our smile is to others.

A beautiful smile is often taken as a visual impression of good health. Feeling able to give the world a care-free smile is important for our confidence and how we express ourselves. For this reason, we offer excellent teeth whitening services.

If you would like your teeth lightened by several shades and look naturally luminous, you’re in the right place. At Dental Partners of Boston, we will discuss your goals for your oral health and help you attain them.

Amazing Dental Experience
Michaela M.

Dr Wright was wonderful and very thoughtful. She addressed all of my concerns and put me at ease in the chair. She made the process simple and explained everything in detail!

The BrightSmile Whitening Procedure

The BrightSmile whitening system is among the best teeth whitening systems available today and our same-day results will delight and amaze you. It’s a relatively simple cosmetic option and a straight forward procedure and usually takes about one hour.

We first clean your teeth and check for any problems that might interfere with the treatment. Some issues we check for include sensitivities, loose fillings, chips, or fractures. We need to check that your teeth are in good condition before we enhance their brightness.

Next, we protect your lips and gums from the whitening agent and isolate the teeth before treatment. We do this because the whitening agent is powerfully effective and we don’t want to discolor your lips or gums. We will apply a gel developed from hydrogen peroxide, carefully applying it evenly for best results. A non-invasive laser accelerates the whitening action.

Home Strips Vs. Professional Care

Many over-the-counter teeth whitening products are sold in stores that have low quality control. To most, however, it is quite apparent that having a professional whitening treatment will have noticeably superior results. For example, we will be able to tailor treatments to your needs and situation.

No matter how careful you are applying the teeth whitening kit at home, a professional touch is always worthwhile. A practiced hand is almost always safer in a controlled clinical setting.

Why Choose DPB?

Dental Partners of Boston has a team of qualified dental specialists, and we take our patients seriously. We offer a range of excellent services and have a reputation throughout Boston for our reliability, professionalism, and impeccable standards. Please contact us to schedule a consultation today.

Are You Considering Cosmetic Dentistry?

Caption: Ask us about cosmetic dental treatments for the beautiful smile you desire.

Many elements factor into how you feel about yourself and the level of inner confidence you possess. Some people are beaming with self-confidence while others need a little help getting to the level they want. There is no shame in it. We all want to feel confident. That’s why people choose cosmetics to better their appearances such as using skin care products, hair care products, manicure their nails, and get cosmetic dentistry.

Of course, a vital underpinning of fantastic self-confidence is ensuring that you smile from ear to ear without insecurity. For some, this is easier than others. Less than perfectly calibrated teeth, damaged teeth, stains, and other consequences of wear and tear can cause someone’s beaming smile to feel tainted.

Cosmetic dentistry, such as that provided by Dental Partners of Boston, can improve a smile while retaining a patient’s natural look and beauty. We recommend that you contact us for a personal consultation to help you assess your needs. We can ensure you have more than one reason to smile.

The following examples are some of the services we provide to improve your health and your confidence.

Chipped Tooth Repair

Of course, a simple chip can happen anytime, anyplace, from eating hard foods to general wear and tear, or as the unfortunate consequence of an accident or injury. You needn’t have to put up with a cracked or chipped tooth, as our consultants will help you find the best solution necessary for a quick and easy repair.

Complete Smile Makeovers

Complete smile makeovers are fantastic opportunities to get the smile you have always wanted. Cosmetic dentistry can take as little as one treatment or a combination of treatments.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are high-quality porcelain laminates that bond to your teeth. The excellent, robust, ultra-thin material covers the teeth by sliding over them, helping to cover stains and minor damage. This can be light, unintrusive dental adjustment that helps strengthen and improve the aesthetic of your dental situation.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is the use of enamel-colored resin composite that is utilized to repair a tooth suffering from damage. For example, dental bonding treats cracks, decay, and stains and works exceptionally well for uneven teeth or recessed gums.

Dental Implants

Tooth loss can damage your confidence, but you needn’t feel stuck with it. Dental implants with small titanium posts replace tooth roots and allow for excellent jawbone connectivity and rigidity. The installed crowns atop this foundation can grant you a beautiful tooth repair option. Your dentist may recommend dental implants after your dentist assesses if the tooth is beyond repair. Dental implants can restore your smile even in the most damaged conditions.

Gum Depigmentation

Gum discoloration isn’t necessarily harmful or caused by poor hygiene. Although some habits such as smoking or drinking coffee can cause discoloration. Some medications can also cause discoloration. For some people, uneven coloring on the gums is hereditary. Gum depigmentation is the simple and effective procedure of using a non-invasive laser to react with the water content in your gums. The results of this treatment are even, healthy pink gum pigmentation with long-lasting results. The process is usually completed within 30 to 60 minutes with two follow up visits.

Teeth Whitening

Staining and discoloration can take place due to the general wear and tear of daily living. There is no shame in enjoying regular teeth whitening to restore your natural color. Our do-it-yourself teeth whitening kit is a popular choice. Still, in-office teeth whitening is also a great option that can help you ensure the treatment is effective. Both methods will help you ensure your teeth are whitened by several shades.

What You Need to Know About Dentures

Dentures with dental tools. Caption: Achieve a beautiful and functional set of teeth with custom dentures.

Dentures with dental tools. Caption: Achieve a beautiful and functional set of teeth with custom dentures.

Ask the average person what they think of dentures and most would likely tell you that dentures are for the elderly, but this is not true. For certain, the elderly are the primary users of dentures, but there are other segments of people that use dentures. For example, people who have suffered an injury or poor dental health because they lack access to dental care. There’s no rule suggesting that age is a limiting factor for their use. Dentures regularly help people from all walks of life and age groups.

Dental Partners of Boston is proud to offer denture treatment for those in need for whatever reason. Dentures are a remedy for those who need teeth replacement, and it’s best to contact a specialist to schedule a consultation. Another solution to missing teeth is dental implants, which is a superior option to permanently replace missing teeth. However, not everyone qualifies for dental implants for various reasons including health bone and gums. We will go over your options based on our consultation visit with you.

Highest quality, professional service!
Peter K.

Thorough and easy Covid-19 safety procedures. Very knowledgeable staff. I feel I am in good hands when I visit.

Who Needs Dentures?

When thinking of dentures, some may picture an elderly person dunking their dentures in a glass of water to soak. However, those who have received dentures have discovered how far they have come in the last twenty years of dentistry. They are functionally advanced and thoroughly hygienic as they serve as dental replacements.

The truth is, anyone could need dentures after tooth loss due to gum disease, injury, or difficulties with oral health. Therefore, there’s no shame in asking about dentures or any other dental procedure for that matter. You’ve most likely met people who wear them. Thanks to how discreet and realistic they are, it would be difficult to tell someone is wearing them.

Dentures unlock your ability to eat with comfort, smile naturally, improve dental health, and regain your confidence.

What Options Are Available?

There are two types of dentures: complete and partial.

  • Complete dentures are full replacements for patients who may have suffered full or near full tooth loss. Complete dentures require removing the weakened few teeth left to provide an easy-to-wear full set. Thanks to the nature of complete dentures, they fit perfectly and guarantee a beautiful new set of teeth.
  • Partial dentures are for those who still retain some of their teeth and do not need a full arch created. We take our time to ensure your partial dentures fit in with the natural lining of your teeth, filling the gaps reliably with a gum-colored base instead of with an artificial aesthetic.

Things You Should Know

As your dental situation changes for the better it can sometimes alter how you speak. It may take a couple of weeks to get used to your new set of teeth (we recommend slowly working up to harder and varied foods).

We recommend semi-regularly visits to ensure your dentures are being cared for properly, remain comfortable, and retain their strength. This way, we can provide the best denture experience for you.

One appointment could be all you need to start the road to regaining confidence in your smile. We look forward to speaking with you and answering all of your questions.

A New Treatment for Receding Gums

Woman smiles with healthy gums and teeth

A woman holding a coffee mug smiles with bright white teeth. Caption: Receding gums makes your teeth vulnerable. There is a new procedure to fix that!

Receding gums is a condition where your gums pull back from the tooth surface. This causes the root surface of your teeth to be exposed. This form of gum disease is a serious consequence of poor oral health, which may lead to tooth loss.

Receding gums has a number of causes, including aggressive brushing over time, plaque buildup, smoking, hormonal changes in women, family history of gum disease, diabetes, and HIV. Certain medications can cause dry mouth, which increases your risk because your mouth has less saliva than it should. When you have a dry mouth, the tissues in your mouth can become vulnerable to bacterial infections and injuries.

Receding gums is something that is most common in adults 40 years of age and over. For this reason, people often think that it is a normal sign of aging and can go untreated.

Symptoms of Receding Gums

Symptoms of receding gums include the following:

  • bleeding after brushing or flossing
  • bad breath
  • red, swollen gums
  • pain at the gum line
  • exposed tooth roots
  • visibly shrinking gums
  • loose teeth

Receding gums will be diagnosed by a dentist who will give you an examination.

Pinhole Treatments for Receding Gums

In the past, the only way to cover exposed dental roots was via gum grafting surgery. The procedure would stitch over the exposed root harvested gum tissue from other areas of the mouth. Traditional gum surgery was something that often created a lot of bleeding, and many patients found it uncomfortable. Today, however, the solution is far better with the pinhole surgical technique. During pinhole surgery, the periodontist makes a tiny incision above the affected tooth or teeth. Then tiny collagen strips are placed inside of the incision, holding the tissue in place and encouraging healing. This means it is far more comfortable for the patient and there is a reduced chance of infection. The incisions are so small that it means that patients also won’t have to live with scarred gum tissue.

What to Expect from Pinhole Surgical Technique?

Not only is it a far more comfortable procedure, but the pinhole surgical technique is faster. Dentists are able to treat several teeth at one time. Most patients will see the desired results in one or two pinhole surgical treatments. In the past, traditional gum surgery often required several sessions.

While some patients experience some bruising and swelling following pinhole surgery, the procedure does offer instant results. This means patients can enjoy full gum coverage immediately following the procedure, fending off dental sensitivity.

Who Qualifies for Pinhole Surgical Treatment?

If you have gum recession, you are likely to qualify for the pinhole surgical technique. You will need to make an appointment with the Dental Partners of Boston to determine whether the pinhole surgical technique is right for you. During your consultation, you will find learn about the benefits of pinhole surgery and how it can alleviate your symptoms.

Restore Your Smile with a Full Mouth Reconstruction

A man smiles after full mouth reconstruction.

A man stands leaning against a wall smiling. Caption: Full mouth reconstruction will restore both your smile and your confidence.

Have you ever had a bad day and in your worst mood, but then you felt joy when someone made you laugh? Or suddenly grinned back at someone smiling at you? Smiling is contagious. When you smile, your brain releases endorphins, neuropeptides, dopamine, and serotonin, which lowers your heart rate and blood pressure, decreases stress levels, relaxes your body, and lifts your mood.

Of course, you may be holding back your smile if you have damaged teeth, which can lower your self-esteem and confidence. But now is the time to start enjoying all the great benefits of smiling. This is why all of us at Dental Partners of Boston work together to provide you with a full-mouth reconstruction when needed. We want you to smile uninhibitedly.

Smile Restoration with a Full Mouth Reconstruction

Full mouth reconstruction is one of the most complex procedures in dentistry. It involves a series of procedures, which solve severe dental problems and cosmetic concerns. Although the processes involved aren’t all cosmetic, it can include some cosmetic fixes, such as teeth whitening as part of the treatment.

You may consider consulting with us about a full mouth reconstruction procedure if:

  • You have tooth damage following gum recession or gum disease.
  • An accident that has caused damage to your mouth or loss of teeth.
  • Your teeth have become worn down by tooth grinding or acid erosion from food, beverages, or acid reflux.
  • If you’re experiencing jaw pain or headaches caused by jaw misalignment

What Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures Will You Need?

While a full mouth reconstruction may be necessary to restore your oral health and improve your cosmetic concerns, no two procedures are alike. Only the Dental Partners of Boston dentist working on your full mouth reconstruction can determine the right procedures for your unique dental needs. However, some of the reconstruction procedures include:

Dental implants

Dental implants are the most permanent dental reconstruction method. The procedure involves the placement of a titanium root in the jawbone, with a crown over the implants. This procedure restores a significant amount of functionality, which means you can eat your favorite foods without experiencing any pain or difficulties. What’s more, implants help prevent bone resorption.


Dentures are artificial arches of removable upper and lower teeth. Most patients can adapt well to upper dentures because of the suction created between the denture base and the palate. However, lower dentures may require an adhesive.

Although dentures are a popular full mouth reconstruction option, they have some drawbacks. For example, because they’re removable, they can shift when eating or chewing. This means that you may not be able to eat your favorite foods. Also, they don’t prevent bone resorption.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns may be an excellent option to restore your smile if you have fractured or decaying teeth. Your prosthodontist will reshape your teeth so that the crown can fit over it. Once your prosthodontist has created your permanent crown, it will be inserted and restore the functionality and appearance of your teeth.

Porcelain veneers

If your front teeth are discolored or misaligned, artificial shells, known as veneers, can be created and placed over your teeth to match the color of your other natural teeth.

Discuss Your Full Mouth Reconstruction Options

Do you suspect that you need extensive dental work to restore your smile and oral health? Take the first step and contact us to schedule a consultation. During this appointment, we will discuss your concerns and needs, and help you determine the right full mouth reconstruction procedure for you.
