What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain that are bonded to your tooth enamel in order to form a more perfect smile. Dental veneers in Anchorage, Alaska are very versatile and are one of the easiest ways to improve most cosmetic dental flaws.

What Can Veneers Fix?

Our experienced dentist may suggest veneers as part of your personalized treatment plan to fix:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Teeth with stains or discoloration
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Teeth separated by large gaps or spaces
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Cracked or fractured teeth

How Does the Dentist Apply a Veneer?

Creating and applying veneers is a simple process, and our dental team has the skill and expertise to make your experience with veneers a positive one. Dental veneers are made from impressions of your teeth that are sent to a dental laboratory. Once they have been manufactured, the veneers are sent back to our office. Normally the teeth receiving the veneers are gently reshaped to accommodate the veneer and to secure the bond. When Dr. Dustin Wilde has made sure that the veneer is the perfect shape and size, it is permanently cemented into place. If taken care of properly, dental veneers can last for up to 10 years.
