Achieve a Permanently Flawless Smile
Composite and Porcelain Veneers in Anchorage
Veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure that involve putting a thin layer of material, such as composite resin or porcelain, over the surface of your tooth. This procedure is a popular choice for covering unattractive stains, covering chips or cracks, reshaping crooked or uneven teeth, or closing gaps between teeth.
What You Need To Know About Getting Veneers
- Permanent Solution: To ensure the veneer adheres to the surface of your tooth and look natural, we’ll need to remove some enamel from the front and sides of your teeth. This means that you can’t go back to your natural teeth.
- Healthy Foundation: You’ll need healthy gums and decay-free teeth before your veneers are placed. During your consultation, we’ll need to examine your oral health to determine if you’re a good candidate for veneers.
- Careful Maintenance: Veneers typically last about 15 years, but they may come loose or chip and break. You may need to wear a protective night guard if you grind your teeth, and you’ll need to avoid chewing on hard objects or biting your nails. You’ll also need to practice great oral hygiene to prevent cavities from forming underneath the material.
- Stain Prevention: Porcelain or ceramic veneers are resistant to staining and should stay beautifully white and bright with regular oral care. However, composite veneers can stain with coffee, tea, and other dark-colored substances.
