Many people feel that a bright, white smile helps embolden their sense of the self-confidence. At the same time, something as simple as chronic dental stains and other minor cosmetic imperfections can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile’s appearance.
Fortunately, people living in the Anchorage, Alaska, area can always turn to a professionally trained dentist like Dr. F. Todd Wortham & Seth Jorgensen to explore their cosmetic dentistry options. After assessing the nature and severity of your dental stains and other imperfections on your teeth, he might recommend dental veneers.
The thin shells are often made from either dental grade porcelain or a special composite resin that can be shaded to mimic naturally white tooth enamel. These materials are often less receptive to dental stains than natural tooth enamel, which makes your white smile easy to maintain.
Attaching them to the faces of your teeth requires our dentist to lightly etch the surface tooth enamel to create sufficient texture to hold the dental work in place. A strong dental adhesive is then used to tightly bond each dental veneer to its corresponding tooth.
Our dentist will explain any basic care and cleaning measures to help you maintain your dental veneers for many years to come.
