Michael P, Ipswich, MA

“Dr, Polan and his staff provide a comfortable, professional environment. They use the latest equipment and techniques. My wife and I have been going to Dr. Polan for several years and have always been completely satisfied with his services.”


Wendy G, Beverly, MA

“I had a wonderful time!!! Everyone was “exceptional” hence the reason it is in the title of the business. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a dentist.”


Diane V, Salem, MA

“Warm, welcoming environment. They do great work cleanings & crowns! 1 visit crown is awesome. I would definitely recommend to a friend, especially if they have insurance. Prices can be too high if you have to pay out-of-pocket.”


Meredith

“Every time I go to Dr. Polan’s office the staff is always happy and helpful. I am never under stress because they make me feel so relaxed and in professional hands. I can’t imagine going to another dentist because any other dental office would be a disappointment. The state of the art equipment and top education is the finest.”


Ron T

“My experience at Exceptional dental is always the same. I receive state of the art professional care which is delivered in a manner that feels like family. I would and do, highly recommend them to anyone seeking the best, delivered with a smile.”


Dan

“I learned about Dr. Polan from an ad in the Salem News. What stood out for me was the website that was on the ad and it said be cpapfree.com. Now being someone with obstructive sleep apnea, and knowing all about cpap masks because i tried wearing one before and could not do it, I did a double take when reading the ad. I had to make sure it said what I thought it said. I called the number on the ad and off i went to see Dr. Polan.

I also should note I had not seen a dentist in 10 years and he somehow found a way to take enough of my fear away. To make a long story short, I not only made an appointment for oral appliance therapy to treat my sleep apnea, but i made a dental appointment as well. So I conquered two goals with one person. What else could one ask for? Thank you.”


North Shore Magazine: The Best of Health, 2009

Challenge….. That is the word that best describes what fuels Dr. Benjamin Polan’s life and work. He has heli- skied at the top of the mountains of Colorado, as well as, while an instructor at Sunday River, successfully taught terrified adult beginners how to ski. Dr. Polan carries that love into his work.

Here at Exceptional Dental patients are treated as a whole person. We strive to have a comfortable relationship with each and every one of them. That is the very reason Dr. Polan has invested in the absolute latest technology that benefits the patient’s experience. Technology such as CEREC the in-office-crown system, with CEREC a patient can expect to have a tooth restored in just one visit. Most dentists would agree that dealing with a profoundly frightened patient is a challenge.

The Exceptional Dental offers Sedation Dentistry to those patients who would otherwise forgo dental care. Under sedation a patient will calmly and easily receive much needed dentistry. Another challenge Dr. Polan often faces in his practice is dealing with chronic pain in our TMJ patients. The average dentist has never gone any further than dental school to increase their knowledge and skill of patient pain associated with TMJ. Dr. Polan continues that education today which may explain his high success rate with these patients.

The Exceptional Dental also provides solutions and care for those who suffer from snoring or sleep disorders. We can create a dental appliance for those who cannot tolerate the popularly prescribed CPAP appliance. This is just a glimpse of what can be done by Dr. Polan at Exceptional Dental.

Challenge…. Dr. Polan will meet another one this summer as he travels to Israel to volunteer to provide much needed dentistry to some of the impoverished children of Jerusalem.

Dental bonding is fast, simple and inexpensive

Bonding is used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities and broken or chipped surfaces. Bonding can also be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.

Dental tooth bonding has many unique characteristics that can offer extensive health and cosmetic advantages. Dental bonding is a relatively fast and inexpensive procedure which can usually be completed in just one dental visit.

Kiss your stains, chips, and gaps goodbye

With dental bonding, changes and improvement are noticeable almost immediately. An experienced dentist such as Dr. Benjamin polan in Beverly, MA will be able to fix cracked or gapped teeth and rectify stains or discoloration in only a short period of time. Due to the ease of use in treatment, dental bonding has been one of the most popular choices for desired cosmetic changes in recent years.

The composite resin used to repair or bond the tooth during the procedure is nearly identical to your tooth’s natural appearance. It’s applied to your tooth with a simple bonding material, and offers a quick solution to chipped or damaged teeth without tooth removal or  surgery.

Essentially, bonding offers a quick, low-cost alternative to porcelain crowns or veneers, and with proper care, bonding can last from three to ten years. It does not require additional care other than the standard twice daily brushing and flossing. There are many health benefits of dental bonding as well. A tooth bonding treatment can cover nerve endings that have been revealed by receding gums, or act as an alternative to other forms of dental fillings, often at a lower cost.

  • Cover a misshapen or badly discolored tooth
  • Restore a tooth after a root canal
  • Cap a dental implant

Big changes come with a tiny piece of porcelain

There are many options available in the field of cosmetic dentistry to improve on the small imperfections mother nature has left. Dental veneers are one of the best options to improve the chips, cracks and discolorations left by accidents, illness, or smoking.  Veneers are thin coverings bonded to the front and edges of the tooth. Made of porcelain, the veneer has the delicate translucence of fine china, giving the shell a natural appearance.

Dental veneers can also mask undesirable defects such as teeth:

  • stained by tetracycline.
  • damaged by an injury.
  • weakened as a result of a root-canal procedure.

They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth.

Veneers are usually made by a dental lab technician working from a model provided by a dentist such as Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA. Veneers are usually irreversible because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell.

Enhance your smile in just three visits

Typically, veneers are completed in three appointments.

During the first visit, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the added thickness of the veneer. Usually, about half a millimeter of the tooth is removed, which may require a local anesthetic. During the same visit, a mold is taken of the teeth, and sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers.

During the “bonding” visit, the veneers are placed on the tooth surface with water or glycerin on the teeth to check their fit and get a sense of the shade or color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, they can be adjusted with various shades of cement to match the color of your teeth. Once a special cement is sandwiched between the veneer and tooth, a laser causes a catalyst to be released, hardening the cement.

During a two-week period of adjustment, you may notice the change of size and shape in your teeth. It is important to brush and floss daily. After one or two weeks, you`ll return for a follow-up appointment.

Walk away from imperfections

There is no reason to suffer embarrassment over tooth imperfections. Whether it’s a small chip, crooked teeth, or discoloration that’s always bothered you, an experienced dentist like Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA can help improve your appearance and boost your self confidence.

Why a better smile?

Your smile is so much more than just teeth

Your smile is so much more than just teeth

Your smile is so much more than just teeth

Your smile is so much more than just teeth

Aristotle once famously said, “The whole is more than the sum of its parts.” Comprised of your gums, lips, teeth and surrounding bone structure, your smile is significantly more than just another part of your body.

Facial expressions are an essential means of communication. Your smile can welcome people, put them at ease and display your confidence. It is capable of bridging cultures, language barriers, and generation gaps.

What Constitutes a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a general term for various cosmetic dentistry procedures that can improve one’s smile. Some examples of cosmetic procedures are:

  • Teeth Whitening is one of the most common ways to quickly, comfortably and safely enhance your smile.
  • Dental Veneers can greatly improve a smile. Made from porcelain, they are very thin facings that are fastened to your teeth. They can be used to whiten teeth, fix chips, close gaps and cover any breaks in an easy and affordable manner.
  • Dental Implants are used to replace missing teeth or tooth roots. They help in the preservation and restoration of bone in the jaw, which also helps to preserve and restore the shape of your face.
  • Dental Crowns offer health, strength and beauty to teeth that have been broken, stained or decayed.
  • Dental Bridges assist in filling the gaps that have been left by one or more missing teeth.
  • Orthotics are used for the purpose of straightening crooked teeth, providing a straight, gorgeous smile.

To understand which cosmetic procedure will be effective for you, an inspection from Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA will be needed. He will thoroughly inspect your jaws, teeth and facial structure, and from there can recommend the treatments best suited for giving you the smile that you have always desired.

Why a better smile can have a positive effect in your life

A straight, pearly smile helps convey health, youth and intelligence. In today’s world, despite what some may choose to believe, appearances really do matter. Whatever you’re doing, be it assisting a customer, going out for a job interview, going on a date, meeting with a client or setting an example for your children, your confidence will help you get through any challenge. It’s often said that a smile is a window to the soul, and when your smile is at its best, you’ll be able to show off a beautiful, confident soul.

Often, an unsightly smile can be a side effect of poor oral health. More than just a cosmetic issue, poor oral health can lead to a host of adverse effects. Infections, abscesses and various levels of pain can all be associated with subpar oral health. Luckily, many of these issues can be rectified or prevented with proper dental work from Dr. Benjamin Polan in Beverly, MA.

Give the world the gift of a new smile

A smile is so powerful that it can actually promote the release of serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that invokes feelings of well-being and happiness. Anything is possible with the expertise of a competent cosmetic dentist. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us and get started down the road to having a vibrant, confident smile that no one will be able to ignore.
