Coronavirus Updates

Time to start thinking about “What’s next?” 

Hopefully we will be entering Phase 2 very soon and this will signify that less of the virus is around, but we still need to keep our guard up! Let me share with you exactly what we have done to protect us all.

One of the major improvements we have done is to install 4 Reme Halo air purification systems to protect the entire office. 

These units have the following features and benefits:
• Dual ionizers to reduce airborne particulates (dust, dander, pollen, mold spores)
• Kills up to 99% of bacteria, mold and viruses
• REME® reduces sneeze germs by 99% in the time a sneeze can reach three feet.
• New zinc ions kill 99% of viruses on surfaces
• Unlike portable units that are limited to the room in which they are placed, the REME HALO® provides whole home and building purification.
• Easily integrated with your existing HVAC system. The unit doesn’t take away living space and operates silently.
• Two (2) quick release features for easy, no tool, cell replacement
• Incorporates an adjustable shroud around the REME® cell, which allows customization of the advanced oxidation plasma output.

It has the following applications:

• U.S. Military approved for mold reduction in field hospitals.
• U.S. and International Hospital approval for the fight against infectious diseases: 99% reduction of Staph (MRSA).
• Major U.S. city school reports 20% reduction in absenteeism.
• Tested and approved by the Chinese Government for protection against the deadly SARS virus.
• Approved by the USDA, FSIS, and FDA for use in food processing plants. Employed to reduce microbial contamination of food being processed.
• Cruise lines use it as a safety measure against Norwalk Virus outbreaks

The REME HALO® can be installed in a wide variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications where a ducted HVAC system exists. Here are some examples:

• Single family homes, apartments, condos
• In hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and doctor’s offices
• Schools, daycare centers, colleges and universities
• Fitness centers, locker rooms, athletic facilities
• Office buildings
• Veterinary clinics, animal hospitals, kennels,
• Hotels, motels, and resorts.
• Food processing and manufacturing plants/facilities
• Restaurants, diners, and bars
And to review, some changes and protocols you will see when it is time for your next appointment:
  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • Other than when you are having dental treatment, wear a face mask at all times.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • We will take your temperature with a hands-free forehead thermometer.
  • Once seated in the dental chair, we will ask you to gargle with hydrogen peroxide.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines,  since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Please ask Elena or Bonnie for cups.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
Types of appointments we are now scheduling
  • Emergencies of any kind
  • Patients in which treatment may have been delayed, but could cause more damage by waiting any longer
  • Patients in the middle of treatment and any delay would cause more problems
  • Hygiene appointments for all patients that have active periodontal disease
  • Anybody that has had gum disease in the past, and could develop an emergent problem if a cleaning appointment  is postponed any further
  • As always just call if you have any questions on what can be done at this time

Porcelain veneers - Boston, MA

Transform Your Smile with No Recovery Time

Quick Treatment

Compared to other procedures, porcelain veneers produce relatively fast results and do not require any recovery time. The procedure can be completed in just two appointments at our Brookline, MA office, allowing you to achieve a beautiful smile within weeks.

Comprehensive Coverage

One of the benefits of veneers compared to other cosmetic treatments is how many issues they can address in one procedure. They can provide the appearance of a whiter, straighter, more symmetrical smile by fully concealing discolored, chipped, uneven, or misshapen teeth. 

Natural-Looking Results

The porcelain used for veneers is highly lifelike and reflects light like natural tooth enamel, so you can expect your new smile to look gorgeous and natural. Although they are thin, porcelain veneers can provide long-lasting benefits when cared for properly.

Placing veneers is a fairly simple process...for the experienced cosmetic dentist

Veneers Cover the Front Surface of the Tooth, Concealing:

Unevenly sized teeth or gaps can make your smile look misaligned. While orthodontic treatment with ClearCorrect® might still be a better option for severe misalignment, dental veneers can often address minor issues.

Chips & Cracks

Chips and cracks can make your smile look unhealthy and unbalanced. By concealing cosmetic imperfections caused by tooth damage, these porcelain restorations can help your smile look its best.

Internal Staining

Some stains (like tetracycline stains) cannot be removed with teeth whitening alone. If your smile is affected by permanent stains or internal discoloration, our dentists may recommend dental veneers.

Veneers Are Impressively Long-Lasting

A commonly  asked question at our Brookline, MA office during a consultation for porcelain veneers is; (read our blog post) on “How long will my porcelain veneers last?” Review of the scientific literature will reveal a general consensus of about 10-15 years and a success rate of about 93%, for that time period. However, having a clear understanding of what factors insure success, and what measures can be taken to increase longevity can add more years to your beautiful porcelain veneers.

However, certain factors can affect the success of your veneers, including: 

Condition of Dental Enamel

In order for veneers to be bonded in place, our dentists will need to remove a small amount of enamel. Veneers typically last longer for patients who have a strong, healthy foundation.

Clenching or Grinding

Although porcelain is very strong, it can become prematurely worn or fractured if you clench or grind your teeth. An oral appliance that protects your teeth during sleep can prevent this from happening. 

Oral Hygiene

Porcelain is resistant to stains and decay, but your underlying tooth structure is not. If you don't practice good oral hygiene, you are more likely to acquire cavities and put your dental veneers at risk.

Do You Qualify for Veneers?

Before receiving veneers, patients at our Beacon Street office in Brookline, undergo a full oral exam to help our dentists determine whether they are good candidates for veneers. In general, good candidates for veneers have

Treatable Concerns

Because dental veneers cover the whole front of a tooth, they can conceal a wide variety of dental imperfections including small chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and misshapen teeth. They can be used on any number of teeth and are an excellent component of a smile makeover. However, if you have severe dental damage or missing teeth, you might be better suited for restorative treatments, such as dental crowns.

Good Oral Health

Patients who are considering any type of cosmetic dentistry treatments should be in good oral health. If you need gum disease treatment, a professional cleaning, or restorative dental work, these can be administered at our Boston office prior to the placement of your porcelain veneers. 

Your Treatment Options

Traditional Veneers

Traditional veneers are made by a trusted, offsite lab and are typically placed over two appointments. Traditional porcelain veneers involve some removal of tooth enamel, and impressions of your teeth must be sent to our dental lab.

Minimal-Prep Veneers

Minimal-prep veneers can be created and placed in a single appointment for patients who qualify. Minimal-prep veneers are even thinner than traditional veneers, and little, if any, enamel is removed. 

Which Option Is Right for You?

The only way to determine which option is right for you is to meet with one of the dentists at our Brookline,MA, office.

Not every patient is eligible for minimal-prep veneers. For example, traditional veneers can be more effective if the goal is to fill a gap between your teeth without using orthodontics. Minimal-prep veneers are best suited to changing the color of your smile and correcting minor imperfections. Patients who want to enlarge the look of small or worn teeth may be good candidates for minimal-prep veneers, but on other patients, they can look bulky.

The Treatment Process


You will first meet with one of our skilled dentists so they can perform a thorough examination and discuss your treatment goals and budget with you. Together, you will determine whether traditional or minimal-prep veneers are the best option. If you are receiving minimal-prep veneers, they typically can be placed in a single appointment to provide you with immediate results.

Preparing the Teeth

If you are receiving traditional veneers, your dentist will prepare each treated tooth by removing a small amount of enamel (less than 1 millimeter). Once the tooth or teeth have been prepped, we will take impressions of your smile to send to our off-site dental lab. An expert dental ceramicist will create your porcelain veneers to our exact specifications.

Placing the Veneers

Once your porcelain veneers are ready, you will return to our Brookline office to have them placed. An acidic solution will be applied to lightly etch your teeth and create a more durable bond. Your dentist will apply dental cement to the backs of the veneers and then press them onto your teeth. We will then use a special curing light to harden the tooth-colored cement. Your dentist will ensure your bite is properly aligned and make any necessary adjustments.
