At Bast Dental Clinic, we understand that it is important to offer a cosmetic dentistry option for the repair of minor to moderate dental issues. When your tooth is chipped, cracked, disproportionately sized or discolored, all you need in some cases is a way to cover the problem while providing your tooth’s structure the support it lacks. For that reason and more, we are proud to offer porcelain veneers to our patients in Fairbanks, AK.

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are fused to the front surface of your teeth to improve their color and shape, and – most importantly – their structure. When your tooth suffers any form of damage, the integrity of the enamel is compromised, which poses as a threat to the tooth’s dentin where all the nerve endings are located. The porcelain veneer protects the tooth’s inner structure while creating a perfect outer appearance.

Porcelain is the ideal material for the veneers, because it closely resembles the color and structure of a tooth’s natural enamel. The procedure is quite simple: We remove a thin layer of the damaged enamel and replace it with a porcelain veneer. The end result is a tooth that perfectly matches its surrounding healthy teeth in every way.

Please note that although this procedure can solve a variety of dental problems, your Fairbanks cosmetic dentist will determine whether this treatment is right for your individual needs.
