Crosspoint Family Dental is the leading provider of veneers in the Westford, MA area. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic, cemented over the front of your teeth. Veneers are used on teeth that are discolored, chipped, oddly shaped, unevenly space or crooked. Veneers have a longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding and highly resist permanent staining from common things such as coffee, tea and cigarette smoke.
Indirect vs. Direct Veneers serving Westford, MA
There are two types of veneers. It is generally used to improve the tooth appearance but is occasionally used to protect the tooth surface.
- Direct Veneers – A direct veneer is built over the tooth surface by hand. This is usually referred to as bonding. This is most commonly done using a composite resin, identical to the tooth color. This is a more simple procedure and can be done in a single appointment. Although this is a less expensive technique, they do tend to deteriorate more quickly.
- Indirect Veneers – An indirect veneer is fabricated in a dental laboratory and is generally constructed from porcelain. During the first appointment, teeth are prepared, impressions are taken and the teeth are given a temporary coating. After two to three weeks, the veneers are back from the dental laboratory and the temporaries are removed. This is when we bond the veneers to the teeth.

Our Happy Patients
I am a new customer to the dental practice but am very pleased with the level of care that I have a received so far. My hygienist, Stephanie, was very thorough (and gentile) during the cleaning/exam and went above and beyond to assist me with my insurance coverage. 5/5 would recommend to anyone in search of a new dentist!
I have been going to this practice close to 20 years. There was a different doctor before however even the new team is great. No complains over any of their treatments or recommendations.
