"I was fortunate enough to have had Dr Boulard help me after an accident that knocked out my front teeth. Because of the extensive damage, I scheduled a consultation with Dr Boulard expecting reconstructive surgery, and it took no more than 2 hours for him to draw up a plan and I left the office that day relieved of pain (still no teeth). After many months of work, Dr Boulard proved his skills and expertise repairing my teeth making them look better than they did before and function as well. As someone who hates going to the dentist, he made sure I was comfortable throughout each procedure. Dr Boulard has an amazing team at his side. He details as a perfectionist would, but also makes the comfort of his patients his number one priority. He was extremely accommodative with scheduling and working with my insurance."- N.A. / Google / Oct 20, 2022

"As someone that loathes going to the dentist and having major anxiety about it I got lucky to have found Dr. Boulard and his amazing staff. From the very onset they treat you with the utmost respect and class. By the time you leave your first appointment you realize you made the right choice as they treat you like family. After the first conversation with Liz making the appointment I knew this was possibly the right place. And it was cemented the second you walk through the door and you're greeted by Liz her radiant smile and the feeling that you belong there. Easiest five star rating I've given. If there was an option for ten or fifteen stars they'd earn them all!! If you're on the fence hop over and give something to smile about a call."- B. / Google / Jan 19, 2022
"After delaying dental care for over a year, I found Dr. Boulard and have had two visits with his practice. I could not be more pleased! The staff is friendly and competent and showed deep concern for my needs and well being. After experiencing the intolerance and contempt the medical community at large has for those who cannot safely wear a face mask, I am overjoyed at the treatment and respect I received here. After my dental surgery, I got a follow-up call from Dr. Boulard himself, which I thought was so nice and caring. These folks stand head and shoulders above the rest and I am so grateful to have found them!"- L.P. / Office Visit / Jun 10, 2021
"I’ve been a patient with Dr. Boulard for 14 years. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my teeth! Always makes me feel comfortable and never a painful experience. I love the fact that they have high tech scanners so I never gag, no more gunky impressions. and they have up to date technology, with the option of also getting Invisalign. The rest of the staff is lovely and the office manager, Olga, is amazing! They are so efficient and well mannered. I highly recommend!"- D.S. / Google / May 24, 2021
Who needs dental veneers?
Veneers may be used to rapidly hide chips and stains on your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are unevenly spaced or shaped. During your consultation, Dr. Boulard will listen to your objectives and expectations so he can customize your treatment. Dr. Boulard will also determine whether you're a good candidate for veneers by assessing the total health of your mouth. You may not be considered for veneers if you have periodontal disease or if you have a dental history of routinely clenching your jaw and grinding down your teeth.
Dr. Boulard's Veneer Technique
When you have developed your personalized treatment plan with Dr. Boulard, he will take dental impressions using our iTero digital scanner. Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab where your custom Zimmer Biomet veneers will be made out of high-quality porcelain material. You will come back to our office for a second visit for the application.
As soon as your porcelain veneers are in our office and ready to be placed, Dr. Boulard will carefully remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This creates space for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond on the tooth. You will have a more natural result that lasts a long time. Once your porcelain veneers are bonded, Dr. Boulard may make minor adjustments to the fit on your teeth to make the veneers more comfortable.
How do I take care of my dental work?
Since veneers do not require numbing injections or sedation, you should be able to get back to your daily tasks following your appointment. You may experience sensitivity to hot and cold food for a couple of days, but this should subside naturally. Veneers should be cleaned just like your own natural teeth with frequent brushing and flossing. While cosmetic veneers are more resistant to stains compared to your natural enamel, you should still avoid staining food and drinks to keep your veneers bright. To prevent chipping your veneers, you should not chew on hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Continue to have regular dental examinations and cleanings at Something To Smile About so that we can monitor the condition of your porcelain veneers, teeth, and overall oral health. Dr. Boulard will tell you if your veneers need to be repaired or replaced.
