Veneers

If you are hesitant to smile because of stained or chipped teeth, there is a solution that can provide a quick, natural-looking upgrade.

Dental veneers can obscure surface-level imperfections and give you a brighter, straighter, healthier-looking smile.

At Midnight Sun Dental in Anchorage, AK, we can design and place your veneers in a single appointment.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin laminates that dentists affix to the visible surfaces of teeth, concealing cosmetic flaws like discoloration, cracks, chips, or minor misalignment.

Why Choose Us for Veneers?

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.

Same-Day Results

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.

Cosmetic dentistry can completely transform your smile. If you have a stained, slightly misaligned, or chipped tooth, a veneer can provide subtle, yet striking results. Our dentist crafts veneers from porcelain, so they are indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Same-Day Veneers Step-by-Step

With same-day veneers, you can walk out of our Anchorage-area office with a brilliant new smile in one visit.

Tooth Preparation

Before a veneer can be placed on a tooth, our dentist must remove a thin layer of enamel. This ensures that the veneer lies flush alongside adjacent teeth and doesn't appear bulky. Dr. Latteier will administer a local anesthetic before precisely reshaping your tooth. 

Digital Impressions

Once the small amount of enamel has been removed from all of the teeth being treated, we will use our digital imaging technology to create a precise model of your modified bite. Because we use digital impressions, you won't have to bite into uncomfortable dental putty.

Veneer Fabrication

We will then use our sophisticated CEREC machine to create your dental veneers. Dr. Latteier will first upload the digital model of your bite to the machine. Then, the machine will analyze the model to determine the dimensions of your prepared teeth. Next, the machine will sculpt blocks of porcelain-like IPS e.max into custom-crafted veneers that should fit perfectly over your prepared teeth. This whole process can be completed in less than an hour.

Veneer Placement

Once your veneers have been fabricated, Dr. Latteier will attach them to your prepared teeth with durable dental cement. The veneers should blend seamlessly into your smile and obscure the cosmetic imperfections that were making you self-conscious. You can walk out of our office with a brilliant new smile that you'll be able to show off right away.

That Puts You First

Dentist and patient

Dr. Latteier understands the importance of an attractive smile, which is why he wants to make cosmetic dentistry accessible to his patients. He offers free consultations and financing plans, giving patients the resources they need to achieve a dazzling smile. Having served in the military, he does everything he can to work around the busy schedules of the military families in the Anchorage area.

Our dentist also believes in the importance of education — both for himself and his patients. He continues to learn about advances in dental care while keeping his patients informed on how to care for their oral health.

Filler

If you've noticed damage on just one tooth, you may be wondering about your possible treatment options.

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.

Life With Veneers

Once your porcelain veneers are in place, you will care for them just like you care for your natural teeth. Be sure to brush and floss every day and visit our Anchorage office at least twice a year for routine cleanings and checkups.

Veneers can withstand normal biting and chewing, but they're not indestructible. You should avoid biting your nails, chewing on pens, or opening packages with your teeth. You should also exercise caution when biting into especially hard or sticky foods.

If you follow all aftercare instructions and take reasonably good care of your dental veneers, they should last 10 years or longer.

What Do I Do if My Veneer Falls Off?

If a 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. Contact us so we can help you as soon as possible.

Prioritizing Your Oral Health: 

The Secret to Maintaining Your New Smile

Woman smiling

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.
