An unappealing smile can leave you feeling awkward in social situations, but you do not have to endure a smile you don’t love. Dr. Evan Wheeler offers custom-made dental veneers to beautify your teeth and can help you determine if this treatment is right for you.

Dental veneers are thin cosmetic shells created to cover the face of a tooth and improve a variety of cosmetic flaws, including stains, chips, and crooked or too short teeth. Typically, dental veneers are made of porcelain material because it can be matched to the shade of your natural tooth structure or lightened to make your smile look whiter.

Your dental veneers will be created in two visits to Evan L. Wheeler, DDS, PC. First, our dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, including dental X-rays, to determine if your tooth enamel is sufficient and healthy enough to bond to your dental veneers. If previous dental work or a lack of strong enamel, a tooth may be too compromised for a dental veneer and our dentist may need to place a dental crown instead.

Following the dental exam, we will take an impression of your teeth to send to the dental lab. Talented dental technicians will custom create your dental veneers and submit the final product to our office. Once ready, we schedule your second appointment, where Dr. Evan Wheeler will remove some tooth enamel from the face of each designated tooth to accommodate the dental veneers. Finally, your new veneers are cemented into place.

We invite you to contact Evan L. Wheeler, DDS, PC today to learn more about the process of receiving dental veneers in Fairbanks, Alaska, to help you decide if you would like to move forward with this treatment.
