“Now that the procedure is over, I find myself reaching for that ice-cold glass of water with no fear. I can have that hot cup of coffee whenever I want. Just more confidence in being able to smile and not having to smile or retouch the picture if I needed to. I’m really glad that I found Divine Smiles.” – Valerie

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental-grade ceramic that are placed on the front of the teeth. These shells are translucent and mimic the appearance of natural enamel. They are stain-resistant and long-lasting, making them a great choice for someone looking to cover up minor cosmetic flaws and achieve a durable and beautiful new smile.
If you have structural issues with your teeth, you may need dental crowns instead. Porcelain veneers can help with very minor structural issues, but if you have significant decay or weakened teeth, a crown will probably be better. Crowns replace more of the tooth and can take more biting force.
In some cases, patients may benefit from a combination of treatments in order to achieve the best results. For example, our office provides Glo Professional Whitening to improve the cosmetic appearance of your existing teeth and match the appearance of your veneers for your ideal look. A customized “smile makeover” can help if you have multiple issues with your teeth that need to be addressed.
In addition to porcelain veneers, we offer Glo Whitening to help you see your most brilliant smile. Many individuals seek whitening treatment separate from or along with veneers in order to achieve even, dazzling teeth. The Glo system employs a patented device that combines LED light and heat to activate a specialized hydrogen peroxide gel. This technology expedites the whitening process, potentially delivering quicker and more effective results. Our team will spend time learning about your needs to determine the best cosmetic treatments for you. In many cases, Glo is an excellent method for helping your smile shine its brightest.
Enjoy Confidence In Your Smile
Porcelain veneers offer a practical solution to minor cosmetic and functional concerns about your smile. Unlike more involved or invasive procedures, veneers allow you to achieve a fully restored, beautifully-customized smile with no downtime. From correcting general wear, like stains, cracks, and chips, to subtle shape adjustments, you can maintain the integrity of your teeth while achieving long-lasting results.
With Porcelain Veneers Woburn and Winchester patients can address a range of cosmetic dental issues, including:"
Veneers are sometimes called “instant orthodontics” because they can be placed over teeth with minor misalignment, gapping, or crowding without the need for orthodontic treatment. However, if you have moderate to severe misalignment issues, you may benefit more from orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign. Dr. Clancy will let you know your options after examining your teeth during your consultation.
At our practice serving patients in Woburn and Winchester Porcelain Veneers are best suited for the ideal candidate who:
If you have gum disease, this will need to be treated before having porcelain veneers placed. In addition, poor oral hygiene habits will need to be corrected. Porcelain veneers are not an instant fix for decay and will not last if you don’t take care of them.
Neuromuscular issues such as TMJ often require more extensive treatments to correct a misaligned bite. Once your bite is corrected, though, porcelain veneers can be used to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. If you are seeking TMJ treatment but are also interested in veneers, let Dr. Clancy know so that he can create a comprehensive functional and aesthetic treatment plan for you.
Finally, candidates need to realize that this treatment is irreversible and will require care. Veneers require the natural teeth to be altered a little bit so that the veneers can fit comfortably, and once the teeth are adjusted, there’s no turning back. Veneers can last an incredibly long time with proper maintenance, but if they are damaged or fall off, they will need to be replaced.

Achieving Your Ideal Smile
The placement is minimally invasive and painless. During your visit, Dr. Clancy will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of your natural enamel. Although the veneers are wafer-thin, the removal of some enamel is necessary to ensure that they fit comfortably and seamlessly into your smile.
Abrading the enamel is not painful, but we can use a local anesthetic to reduce any discomfort you may feel. We also offer the NuCalm system to help our patients relax during treatment.
Once your teeth have been prepared, we will take scans to be used in crafting your custom veneers. Dr. Clancy will work together with you to help you decide on color and shape. Although many patients want to choose the brightest shade of white, we often counsel against this, as it can look unnatural. However, we will always work to meet and exceed your goals and will perform work that aligns with your personal objectives.
If your case requires outside lab work, you will be provided with cosmetically pleasing temporary restorations for your comfort and convenience while your porcelain veneers are being created for you. When one to ten veneers are required, we use a same-day approach, letting you enjoy your results almost immediately. If 11 to 32 veneers need to be crafted, this process may require an additional day for outside lab work. We will always ensure you leave with a temporary restoration that is cosmetically pleasing and comfortable. We will also let you try on and preview your permanent veneers before they are cemented, ensuring that you are entirely pleased with the result.
During your second appointment, we’ll fit your custom veneers. You’ll be able to see how they look in your mouth, and we’ll make sure that they are comfortable. If there are any problems, or if you change your mind about the shade or shape once you see them in your mouth, we can send them back to the lab to make corrections.
If there are no problems, Dr. Clancy will cement the permanent in place, and you will leave our office with a brand-new smile. In many cases, Dr. Clancy can perform same day dentistry with our CEREC machine, allowing you to leave your appointment with your most beautiful, confident smile. Whatever your situation, we emphasize providing beautiful results in the most timely manner possible, helping integrate your dental care into your daily life.
Porcelain veneers offer an exquisitely natural-looking and long-lasting smile transformation while supporting the structure, longevity, and functionality of your teeth. With custom-designed veneers, you can rest assured that your results will seamlessly complement your surrounding features and support your ideal aesthetic results. Overwhelmingly, patients are thrilled with the cosmetic quality of their smile, the ease of treatment, and the functionality and longevity of their results.
Long-Lasting & Beautiful
Porcelain veneers can last for decades if they are taken care of properly. If you do not practice good oral hygiene, drink and eat foods damaging to tooth enamel, or use your teeth for damaging activities such as opening packages or chewing on pencils, then you will likely have to replace one or more within a few years. Caring for your teeth overnight is also an important component of veneer maintenance. If you have conditions like TMJ that could place extra wear and tear on your teeth, we may recommend a nighttime appliance to help prevent damage. Our goal is to help you keep your veneers intact and beautiful for years to come.
Comfortable & Confident
Because porcelain veneers preserve more of your teeth’s natural structure than other procedures, recovery is minimal. You will be able to eat, drink, speak, and use your teeth as normal immediately after your treatment. Porcelain veneer treatment recovery typically involves little to no discomfort and a relatively short adjustment period. Following the procedure, patients may experience some mild sensitivity or discomfort, which usually subsides within a few days. You may want to avoid hot or cold foods during this time.
While there may be a slight alteration in speech or bite initially, most patients find adjusting to their veneers to be an easy and stress-free experience. You will be able to resume your regular activities immediately after your procedure, with no significant downtime required. However, it's essential to follow post-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Clancy, such as maintaining good oral hygiene and attending follow-up appointments. Overall, porcelain veneers offer a quick and effective way to enhance your smile with a straightforward and manageable recovery process.
Luckily, they don’t require a lot of special care. You can treat porcelain veneers just as you would your normal teeth. We recommend following these guidelines to make sure that your veneers last as long as possible:
Dr. Clancy will also give you guidelines in person regarding how best to care for your porcelain veneers. Maintaining good oral hygiene is the best way to ensure both long-lasting veneers and great oral health, so it is essential to brush, floss, and keep on top of your regular dental checkups. You should never use your teeth as tools, whether you have veneers or not. Crunching on hard candies or ice can also easily damage both natural teeth and veneers. Sticky candies such as toffee are bad for your natural teeth because they can get stuck in the crevices and cause decay, and they are bad for veneers because they can loosen the veneers and cause them to fall off over time.
At our practice in Woburn Porcelain veneers offer the healthiest solution and most authentic results compared to other materials. Porcelain is also the most durable, making this type of dental veneer the preferred option for most patients, celebrities, and dental professionals.
Your natural teeth will remain intact, and your porcelain veneers will protect your teeth for years into the future. You will have to have a portion of your real tooth roughened as part of the procedure so that the veneer will stick, but our team works hard to ensure that we preserve as much of the existing tooth as possible.
While your porcelain veneers will help protect your teeth, it is still possible to get cavities after your permanent veneers have been placed. Practicing good dental hygiene, keeping up with dental appointments, and avoiding damage to your veneers and teeth can prevent the development of cavities or other concerns.
Yes, porcelain veneers can be placed over broken teeth to restore a full, healthy smile and optimal function. However, there are limitations, depending on the extent of damage to the existing tooth or infection. During your consultation, Dr. Clancy will perform a thorough assessment to determine the best treatment for your unique smile and goals.
General care can keep your porcelain veneers looking and functioning beautifully indefinitely. However, tobacco, grinding your teeth, using your teeth as tools, poor dental hygiene, sports, eating certain foods, and abrasive toothpaste can all cause unnecessary wear to your veneers.
Dr. Ryan Clancy and every member of our team are here to help guide you to your healthiest, most confident smile. Take the first step by scheduling a full assessment of your concerns, and begin designing your ideal smile and personalized treatment plan.
