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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What To Expect During Your Consultation

/

During your free consultation, Dr. Latteier will perform an oral exam and review your aesthetic goals to determine if porcelain veneers are the best treatment option, or if another cosmetic treatment would be a better fit. If you are a good candidate, we can design and place your veneers on the same day.

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.

Life With Veneers How To Make Your Restorations Last

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. With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last for 10 years or longer.

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

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.

Dental Veneer FAQs

Dental Veneers Anchorage Alaska

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. 

Dental Veneer Treatment Alaska

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.

Dental Veneer Cavity Treatment Alaska

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. 

Dental Veneer Treatment Protection Against Coffee

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.
