Teeth with a flaw in them, whether it’s chipped, discolored, stained, or misshapen, can be a deterrence to your daily lifestyle and confidence. One of the best services to fix that front tooth is a dental veneer, giving you a restored and brighter smile! Dr. Lonnie Anderson and our staff here in Juneau, Alaska, want to help you get your best and most confident smile.
The natural tooth’s flaw can be covered by a veneer, a thin piece of porcelain placed on top of your front tooth. They provide resistance against decay and stains as well as a strengthening agent for the front teeth. Your dentist will use a color swatch to determine the best color for your teeth as well as the best shape that goes best with your natural smile.
First, go into your dentist’s office for a consultation to determine what you need exactly and what specifications you would like with the placement of a veneer. To prepare for a veneer, your dentist will scrape off a small amount of the natural tooth, cleaning and drying it. If your veneer needs to be made in a laboratory, then a temporary veneer may be placed.
After your veneer is made, an adhesive will be placed before the dental veneer is placed. To finalize the process, a special ultraviolet light will cure the new veneer for about a minute. Any excess material removed and your new tooth is given a final polish. Schedule a check-up with Lonnie A. Anderson, DDS to ensure its comfortability and fit.
