Have you ever wished your Anchorage cosmetic dentist could whiten and reshape your existing teeth as easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With prepless porcelain veneers, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently bonded to your natural teeth.

Unlike a crown procedure, your Anchorage dentist does not always need to remove tooth structure to place the restoration. This is a cosmetic procedure, and not suitable for teeth with decay. If the teeth in question have decay, we will recommend a different treatment.

At Excellence In Dentistry in Anchorage, porcelain veneers are used alone and in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures to create complete smile makeovers. Because they can correct cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes referred to as ‘instant orthodontics’.

DURAthin Veneers Allow Same Day Smile Makeovers

DURAthin veneers are not traditional porcelain veneers. Traditional porcelain veneers fit over teeth after we remove enamel to create room for them. We usually apply DURAthin veneers directly over your natural teeth. This offers several benefits. First, it means you can get your smile makeover the same day. You don’t have to wait for a lab to craft the veneers. You also don’t have to wear temporary veneers while you wait. Plus, the procedure is completely reversible, which alleviates the dental anxiety some people have about traditional veneers.

However, DURAthin still offers many of the advantages of traditional veneers. You can achieve many cosmetic effects at the same time with just one procedure. In addition, you can enjoy long-lasting results. Some of our DURAthin patients see great results for 15 years or more.

Inexpensive Same Day Smile Makeovers

The cost of cosmetic dental veneers at Excellence In Dentistry is competitive with other premium cosmetic dental practices in the Anchorage area. We use what we believe is the top Anchorage dental lab to create our client’s veneers and a significant portion of the cost of veneers goes to the lab. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive than crowns and orthodontia. For questions about the cost of porcelain veneers, call our office at (907) 349-0022.
