If you are looking for a way to get a beautiful smile in the Anchorage area, dental veneers may be the best choice for you. You no longer need to be embarrassed and self-conscious about your appearance. Covering your existing teeth with conservative restorations like veneers will give you confidence. Thus, allowing you the freedom to smile and laugh as you desire and deserve.
Dental veneers can cover up most cosmetic oral issues including chipped, unevenly-spaced, or discolored teeth. Veneers can be a long lasting way of fixing oral imperfections. Many people with oral cosmetic issues choose dental veneers because it is a relatively simple procedure.
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are sturdy and long-lasting thin tooth covers that are custom made for the front side of each tooth. When you meet with Dr. Gregorin we will discuss your dental cosmetic desires and your options will be carefully explained to you. Veneers are not the same as dental crowns, as they only cover the front surface of the tooth. Crowns cover the entire tooth, therefore, making veneers a more conservative option.
What are Veneers Made Out Of?
Dental veneers generally are either porcelain or composite. For porcelain veneers, a mold will be taken of your teeth so your custom veneers can be created. On average, this can take up to two weeks. Once the veneers are ready, they will be affixed on the surface of your teeth with a bonding procedure.
Composite veneers can be created chairside, which means you can leave the office with your new veneer restorations the same day. Generally, the structure of each tooth will need to be altered for placement of the composite veneers.
