What are veneers?
Veneers are thin, porcelain shells bonded directly to the surface of your teeth in order to repair flaws and generally enhance the natural beauty of your smile. At Alaska Dental Arts, dental veneers are considered one of our most versatile treatments. Veneers are ideal for repairing broken teeth, discolored teeth, misshapen teeth, and teeth with any number of unsightly flaws. Dr. Derek Lowe offers veneers to help you feel more confident in your smile while also helping each tooth function properly. We can use dental veneers to repair a single tooth or make dramatic changes to your entire smile.
How are veneers made?
It generally takes two visits to our dental office to gather all of the information necessary, prepare your teeth, have your veneers created, and cement them in place. Your veneers are custom made for each tooth and will be permanently cemented into place once we ensure that they fit perfectly. Generally, a small layer of tooth enamel is removed to accommodate the thickness of the veneer and prevent it from looking too bulky. Having your veneers made begins with a cosmetic consultation with our dentist. To schedule yours, call our friendly dental team today. We are excited to help you transform your smile with our high-quality dental veneers in Fairbanks, Alaska!
