Do or Not To Do Veneers. Ask the Right Dentist!


Do or not to do veneers is common question that had been asked for years. It is a hard procedure that should be taken seriously. Personally, I would recommend to do it for fixing a broken or cracked tooth. I had 5 veneers done on my front top teeth during my teen years. I admit, having them initially was a positive experience for me. It gave me some confidence as I had a nice smile and the veneers were comfortable and functional at least 20 years. I know, that is a good sign. However, the next chapter is not going to be anything as rather then the opposite of positive experience. After 21 years, the veneers slided, the edges at the gum line cracked and discolored, also as it has been shifted a bit, the bacteria was becoming an issue. After dragging my feet for 2 years I finally decided to have them redone (not the cheapest process). The experience so far was awful. In the process of removing the original veneers, they had to grind my teeth down to these short stumps to remove the original bonding. It allowed the new veneers to wrap around each tooth. It actually was painful. Then they put a big piece of plastic over the stumps (temps) to imitate your new veneers. The idea is to make sure everything comforts and fits and once this is done, they make the porcelain veneers. The temps were uncomfortable and we made some tweaks but they were comfortable enough. I was told it had to do with the plastic material and that the final result would be okay, but the replacement veneers didn't fit my mouth properly and after two weeks of experiencing some pain and not being able to function, I had to have them removed. That is made me to start looking for another dentist to get more consults and see if someone can help me to fix it as I was going through a lengthy process of trying to get the comfort and function in my bite back in temporaries. I found Doctor Michael Ofir in Cambridge (Avalon Dental Center) who explained me why I’m having such experience now and how we can fix it. So far I found some hope, thanks to Doctor Ofir. I’m getting some progress and soon I’ll get back my beautiful smile!

That’s why it is good to think wisely and consult with a doctor if the veneers a good fit for you. In my situation they were work good for 20 years - that’s is good result for sure, but consider that I really didn’t need them I would think twice before doing the procedure. Also it is really important to find the right dentist that’s why my advice to make a good research. Take some consultation and see what is best for you.

Oh wow! That's why I ended up with lumineers, I didn't want to cut my teeth almost in half. Less pain and stress.

I think that there are always bad or good stories. I am lucky that my story is good. I would recommend Dr.Ofir as I was really happy with my veneers.

    Going into the veneers process I really didn’t know much about how it all worked and I did not know anyone personally to talk to about it. So I was simply searching reviews. I hopped on Google to find the most reputable cosmetic dentist in Massachusetts area to do a consult. I found the Dental Veneers and Lumineers and I really loved their reviews so I contacted them. It was really awesome consult and I made an appointment. And finally made my way to Dr.Ofir Michael, the Dental Veneers and Lumineers a serendipitous discovery if I've ever had one. He's a very professional dentist and, lucky for me, I was able to have him work on my own smile. After evaluating my teeth and listening to my own hopes and dreams for their future look, Dr.Ofir Michael explained he'd apply veneers on the top and bottom of my teeth. During the consult, Dr.Ofir's assistants took molds of my mouth to create the look of temporary veneers, which are sculpted using a liquid composite. Everything is taken into account when creating your new smile, from the way you talk to the shape of your face, so that’s all works together seamlessly. At my next appointment, he applied the temporaries to my teeth (around a three-hour procedure). Once my teeth were done and ready the final procedure was super easy! They removed my temporary teeth, gently placed my new teeth in one by one to ensure I loved them and then bonded all of them. Once everything was bonded I was good to go and my veneers were on. Finally, I came back once more for a bite check and final approval. It was a crazy feeling! When you see your new teeth for the first time it is amazing and I will tell you it takes a few days to get used to them but now they feel like my own teeth and I don’t even see them as veneers. Now when I look in the mirror I feel so much more confident that I found Dental Veneers and Lumineers . My smile is brighter, the teeth fill out my mouth much better, and my whole face has a different. In the days following my final veneers appointment, I found myself smiling much bigger and wider. My smile has changed and my confidence has changed and it is all because of my teeth! Dr.Ofir Michael has completely changed my outlook more than I ever thought possible, and I couldn't be happier. Overall I am so happy with my experience and so happy that I took the plunge. If you’re considering veneers I highly recommend finding Dr.Ofir Michael, Dental Veneers and Lumineers in Massachusetts area and just go in for the consult to see what he says!
