Cosmetic Dentistry in Anchorage
With advances in cosmetic dentistry, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped or misshapen teeth. For years, we have helped countless individuals improve their appearances with veneers. Veneers are custom-made, durable shells specially prepared to make your teeth look natural. They are affixed directly to the tooth, often without the need for an anesthetic. Veneering is a simple procedure requiring just a few appointments.
There are two types of veneers:
Ceramic veneers (sometimes called laminates), are extremely thin shells made of a strong and durable dental ceramic. The dentist removes a small amount of enamel from the front and sides of the tooth. This makes room for the veneer and prevents the restored tooth from feeling or looking bulky or unnatural. Impressions are taken and sent to a dental lab that makes the ceramic veneers to fit your individual teeth. After completion, the final veneers are bonded to teeth.
Composite veneers generally are done in one appointment. After the tooth is prepared and reshaped, the dentist carefully bonds and sculpts the composite material in a color that matches your other teeth. A special light is used to harden the composite. The veneer is smoothed and polished to look like a natural tooth.
