One of the simplest pleasures in life is eating. It gives you an excuse to take a little break, and something little to look forward to throughout the day. Of course, that might not be the case if you have missing teeth. They can make it difficult for you to eat, talk, and even affect your confidence. There are multiple procedures to help restore your missing teeth, but none of them are as thorough as dental implants in Wayland. They can help you look forward to meals again. (more…)

On December 31st, 2016, any unused dental benefits you have will simply disappear. Well actually, they will go back to the insurance company. Every year, people lose billions of dollars in dental benefits, but they still ask, “How can I afford to see the dentist near me?” This is because many people do not know exactly how much they are covered, plus the dental insurance companies have an incentive to not let you know if you have any money left to use. This not only means a loss in dollars, but in vital care as well. Here are 4 reasons you should be sure to use your dental benefits with your dentist in Wayland before the end of the year. (more…)

My last blog discussed how spring is finally here (despite the recent snow) and I’m seeing a lot more smiles. We all feel better when the icy grip of winter has subsided and we are now faced with beautiful warmer days.
Wayland Dental specializes in helping you to achieve the smile of your dreams. Over the next few blogs I’ll be talking about specific ways in which we do this for our patients.
Today I’d like to give you some more information about what dental veneers are and how they can make your smile more beautiful. It is not uncommon for patients to relate to us that they are not satisfied with the color, shape, or position of their teeth. Some people did not have orthodontics when they were younger, they were given tetracycline antibiotics as a children which discolored their teeth, or they have many large discolored old fillings. Others have worn their teeth down through years of grinding at night. Dental veneers are exactly as they are described, thin veneers of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of the teeth, much like press on nails for fingernails. The thin porcelain structures are bonded using a dental cement to your teeth and are very durable. By using this technique we are able to alter the appearance of your teeth to create the smile that you have always wanted in just a few visits! Of course dental veneers do have limitations for esthetic corrections, so if tooth position is a problem, orthodontics may be needed to align the teeth more properly to create that WOW smile. In my next blog, I will discuss orthodontic correction for dental cosmetic purposes. Visit our website Wayland Dental if you would like more information about dental veneers.

Every year I take great enjoyment out of the summer season. There is nothing better than taking in a Red Sox game with the family, travelling to the Cape to catch some sun, or heading out west to Tanglewood. But, with all things in life, such good things must come to an end in New England, and now we start to face the reality of the Fall season approaching. As a parent, my focus is typically on the fact that school will be in session soon. This also means that the football, basketball, and hockey players in the house will be back on their respective fields of play.
At Wayland Dental, we can play a part in the safety of the resident athlete by providing them with a custom athletic mouthguard that will help to protect their teeth and jaw from the inevitable bump on the playing field. Store bought mouthguards can be uncomfortable which leads to a lack of compliance by the athlete in wearing them. A mouthguard that is in the gym bag on the sidelines is not nearly as effective as one which is being worn during play! We can fabricate a custom fit appliance that wont leave the user with the desire to toss it out after the first use. The process is easy and quick and will go a long way to preventing sports related trauma. As you make your school shopping list of pencils, notepads, and backpacks, put a sports mouthguard on the list and give us a call at 508 651-0500 to discuss further how we can help to keep those pearly whites from damage. Happy end of summer!
