Cosmetic Dental Care Alternatives to Teeth Whitening , Anchorage, Alaska

When you want to improve your smile, cosmetic dental care offers a variety of treatments that change the appearance of your teeth. Professional teeth whitening isn’t the best option for everyone, so Oral Surgery Associates of Anchorage, AK, offers some alternative treatments for patients with sensitive teeth or crowns and caps that can’t be bleached.

Here, the area’s leading oral surgeons explain two common procedures that can beautify your smile.

Bonding

cosmetic dental care Anchorage AKA common alternative to teeth whitening is dental bonding, in which a tooth-colored resin is bonded to the front of your teeth with a high-intensity light. Afterward, the resin shaped, smoothed, and polished over your tooth for a clean, natural look. Many people like this cosmetic dental care treatment because it’s affordable and can typically be completed in one visit.

Veneers

If you have chipped or severely stained teeth, veneers may be the ideal cosmetic dental care solution. Thin shells are applied to the fronts of your teeth to create the smile of your dreams. Porcelain veneers are a popular and long-lasting option, but they are expensive. Composite veneers last about six years and are more affordable than porcelain. Your oral surgeon will recommend the option that best suits your needs and budget.
