Advanced and Convenient Why Patients Choose Midnight Sun Dental
The Finest Materials
Instead of traditional dental porcelain, we craft our veneers out of state-of-the-art IPS e.max®. IPS e.max is a porcelain-like material that near-perfectly replicates the color and translucency of natural enamel. IPS e.max can be precisely molded in our in-office CEREC® machine to fit perfectly in your smile.
Veneer treatment typically requires at least two appointments because patients need to wait a few weeks for a dental lab to create the veneers. However, our offices in Anchorage and Eagle River feature cutting-edge technology that allows us to create your veneers ourselves in less than an hour.
No Pressure and No Commitment
We Offer Free Consultations
We don't want our patients to feel pressured into a treatment they might not be ready for, which is why we offer free consultations. You can visit our Anchorage practice to learn more about your options with no added pressure or commitment. Contact us today to learn more.

Life With Veneers How To Make Your Restorations Last
Avoid Biting Hard Objects
While the porcelain used to make your veneers is incredibly strong, it is not indestructible. Try to avoid biting your nails, chewing on pens, or opening packages with your teeth.
Avoid Certain Foods
To protect the integrity of your new restorations, you should use caution when biting into especially hard or sticky foods like ice or taffy.
Get Care for Teeth Grinding
Talk with our dentist if you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), as this can damage your new restorations. Our dentist may be able to fit you with a night guard to help protect your teeth from being worn down.
Prioritizing Your Oral Health:
The Secret to Maintaining Your New Smile
Porcelain veneers look just like your enamel. While they blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, they also need a little help from you to make sure your smile looks its best.
After you receive veneers, your teeth, gums, and new dental solutions will have to be maintained with an at-home oral care routine and regular dental appointments with Dr. Latteier and our team. Be sure to brush your teeth, veneers, gums, and tongue twice each day, floss once a day, and use a dentist-approved mouthwash. This routine can help your veneers last for years to come.
Straight Talk For Every Patient
When you choose Midnight Sun Dental, you can trust that you are receiving care from a team that has your best interests at heart. We will only recommend dental veneers or other cosmetic procedures if we truly believe that they can help you achieve your cosmetic goals and improve your quality of life.

Dental Veneer FAQs
What Do I Do If My Veneer Falls Off?
Contact us so we can help you as soon as possible. If a porcelain veneer falls off, you may be worried about your exposed tooth, but it will likely be fine. You will just need to be a bit more careful with it until our dentist can see you.
Can You Treat Just One Tooth With a Veneer?
Yes, we can. A porcelain veneer can refine just one tooth, or several, depending on your needs. If you notice a flaw in a single tooth, you do not need to commit to any cosmetic treatment beyond that area. Our dentist can determine your treatment options during a consultation. A veneer may be the best solution, but you may also benefit from a dental crown or dental bonding.
Can a Tooth With a Veneer Get a Cavity?
While a porcelain veneer cannot get a cavity, the underlying tooth can. That is why it is so important to maintain proper oral hygiene while wearing your restorations.
Can I Drink Coffee and Wine With Veneers?
Yes, but use caution—the porcelain used to make your dental veneers is stain-resistant, but your surrounding teeth are not. Stains on surrounding teeth can make the color of your smile look very uneven, since the veneers will retain their color. When it comes to enjoying foods and drinks that can stain teeth, enjoy them in moderation, use a straw when possible, and brush as soon as you can afterward. Periodic whitening can also help keep the shade of your smile uniform.
