Should I Get Veneers?

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers cover the front of a tooth, transforming the tooth’s shape and color. A veneer is made up of a thin layer of porcelain or a composite material, which is of a medical-grade. Many patients decide to have veneers placed to cover discolored teeth, eliminate a gap between teeth, cover chipped or cracking teeth, or to reshape a tooth. The process requires at least two trips to the dentist, and can greatly improve the look of your smile. The team at Lane Family Dental will use current technology and make sure you are comfortable with the procedure before your veneers are placed. The end result is natural, and a beautiful new grin.

How Are Veneers Placed?

Going to the dentist is difficult for many patients, but knowing what to expect ahead of time can put you at ease and make your visits enjoyable. When your dentist places porcelain veneers, you can look forward to these steps:

  • First, your teeth will be examined for any damage or decay and those issues will be handled prior to veneers being placed. It is important to address any dental or gum issues prior to placing veneers, to achieve optimum and long lasting results.
  • Second, your dentist will remove enamel from your tooth, in preparation for making the veneer and ensuring the veneer sits naturally on the front of your teeth.
  • Next, an impression of your mouth will be made so a temporary veneer can be built. You will have temporary veneers while waiting for final production of the permanent product.
  • Once the permanent veneer is ready, you will go back to your dentist and have the permanent veneers placed.

A patient requesting veneers to address these cosmetic issues should also have overall good dental health, without any decay or gum disease. If you are experiencing unhealthy gums or have other dental issues such as an infection, your dentist will first treat your medical needs and then assess for placement of porcelain veneers.

Types of Veneers

The following types of veneers are most commonly used:

  • Porcelain veneers: made of a durable material, these veneers will match the color of your existing teeth and are considered the most traditional type of veneer.
  • Composite veneers: these veneers can usually be applied in one office visit, and are more economical than other forms of veneers.
  • Lumineers: this type of veneer is the thinnest veneer, but also the strongest. Application is normally pain free as there is no need to drill or grind a tooth prior to placement. Lumineers are long lasting, and can be applied in two visits.

Benefits of Veneers

The confidence that comes with a pretty smile is immeasurable, and veneers play a large role in building that confidence. Benefits of veneers include:

  • Covering up discolored or stained teeth
  • Closing a gap between teeth
  • Reshaping a misshapen tooth

Veneers also protect teeth from suffering further damage, ensuring the aesthetic benefits of an improved smile are long lasting. Your teeth will appear healthy and natural with veneers, and the color blends in to give you a bright smile.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff ?

The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.

I had so much built up anxiety from not going to regular dental check ups like I probably should have but the staff was phenomenal! They all made me feel comfortable, didn't judge me, and had great hospitality. The hygentist was sweet, and gentle. I have not experienced that in a long time. I'm actually excited to go back in a few months for another cleaning. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt like I chose the right place to go.

This is the second time I’ve gone here and I’m still blown away by the service and attention to detail. Prior to these guys, I used to dread dental visits. At this office, they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We just had our first child three weeks ago and I had to bring him with. I hoped that he would sleep through, but of course he woke up as soon as I showed up for the appt. He was hungry, but instead of getting upset with sticking to time schedules, they encouraged me to make sure he ate enough and burped before we started. He was still fussy, so their receptionist (she is amazing) held him while their dental hygienist (she was also awesome) did my x-rays and then we tucked him in the chair with me during the cleaning. Love it! My teeth are super shiny clean and both this mamma and her baby are very satisfied customers. ^_^

When Your Child Knocks Out a Tooth

As long as you know what to do when your child knocks out a tooth, you can react with confidence. The calmer the situation, the better your child’s chances of a good outcome.

Dr. Jason Lane suggests the following steps:
1. Locate the tooth.

There is a possibility the tooth was partially fractured instead of knocked out. If it was a baby tooth, then just focus on calming your toddler and stopping the bleeding.

2. Clean the tooth.

If it looks like a permanent (adult) tooth was displaced, hold it by the crown and rinse it in a bowl of milk without scrubbing it, as this could damage tiny fibers that aid in reattachment.

3. Reinsert the tooth.

Carefully place the tooth back in its socket. It’s okay if it isn’t perfectly oriented – being back in place will keep it safe and protected until we can look at it. If you aren’t able to put the tooth back, bring it in a secured container of milk to our Wasilla dentist.

4. See Dr. Lane ASAP.

Try to contact Lane Family Dental to find out when we can see your child.

Whether you were able to reinsert the tooth or not, it’s imperative that Dr. Lane has a look at it to see what can be done. If the tooth winds up being a loss, he will discuss options for eventually filling in the gap.

Don’t let the next dental emergency catch you off-guard! Contact our Wasilla dental office today to plan a time to meet Dr. Lane. That way, you’ll know who to call in the event your child knocks out a tooth.

3 Tricks for Keeping Your Smile White

Almost anyone can waltz into a dental office and request teeth bleaching. Keeping your teeth white after whitening, however, is the real trick. If you’re planning to try a professional tooth whitening treatment, then you’ll want to be prepared in advance to make your new look last.

1. Avoid Dark-Colored Foods

Dark pigments will quickly settle into grooves and pores in your tooth enamel. Try limit how often your teeth are exposed to things like:

  • Red wine
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Soda
  • Berries
  • Curry
  • Tomato sauce

Additionally, tobacco use will cause tooth-staining. If you can cut back on cigarette use, your teeth (and body) will thank you for it.

If you DO want to splurge on a soda every now and then, try drinking it through a straw!

2. Brush and Rinse Often

Perhaps you can’t avoid staining foods altogether. That’s another reason why regular brushing and flossing are so important. In addition to keeping teeth healthy, good oral hygiene helps prevent stain buildup.

Make it a practice to drink water with each meal to help wash away dark colors. The longer you let them sit on your teeth, the more damage they can do.

3. Have A Maintenance Program

Whitening your teeth just once isn’t usually enough to keep them looking bright for the rest of your life. After a professional treatment, it’s good to do occasional touch-ups with at-home whitening kits after your regularly scheduled dental cleanings.

Let Dr. Jason Lane and the rest of our skilled team here at Lane Family Dental get you started on the path to a brighter smile. We’ve got the tools and tips you need to get your teeth white and keep them that way! Call today to schedule your visit.

Four Things You Didn’t Know About Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a great way to preserve your natural tooth. The full coverage restorations help to protect the integrity of your bite, while also enhancing how it looks. But here are four things that you might not have known about dental crowns:

They Need to be Flossed Around

The margin of your crown is the area where the restoration meets your tooth. This area needs to be flossed daily. Otherwise, bacteria could creep in under the crown and cause an entirely new area of decay. Even worse, it might not be possible to spot it on an x-ray, depending on how far the decay reaches.

You Can Break a Crown

Your crown isn’t made of indestructible titanium, like a dental implant. Don’t use it to open bottles or tear apart packages…or do anything that you wouldn’t do with a natural, healthy tooth.

Yes, There are Still Gold Options

Most crowns are made from porcelain. Durable and aesthetic, porcelain crowns blend in well with your smile. But sometimes gold is still used, especially for upper back teeth that take on a lot of biting and chewing forces day after day.

You Need to Have Enough Healthy Tooth to Anchor a Crown in Place

A crown can only be anchored on top of a tooth when there is enough structure to support it. Enamel that is worn or completely broken off to the gumlines does not leave you with enough tooth to stabilize a “cap.” In some cases a buildup or post can help, but otherwise the tooth will need to be pulled.

Visit Lane Family Dental in Wasilla to find out if your tooth needs a crown!

A rinse you swish for a minty blast may contain no benefits whatsoever for your teeth or gums. These rinses are considered cosmetic. Therapeutic mouthwashes, on the other hand, have ingredients designed to target the cause of problems like gingivitis, decay, and bad breath.

Check your rinse label carefully to see whether it offers any therapeutic benefits. Even better, look for the ADA (American Dental Association) Seal of Acceptance. This means that the product has been proven to do what it says, whether freshen bad breath, fight cavities, or reduce gum inflammation.

What Kind?

You need to be aware of your unique oral health condition in order to choose the right mouthwash. Not just any kind will work. If you are prone to getting cavities, then you’ll need a rinse that’s rich in fluoride. Are you battling gum disease? A mouthwash that fights plaque and gum inflammation will help you out.

Technique Matters

Rinsing isn’t a very hard task. But to get maximum benefit, you should follow the directions for mouthwash use as given by Dr. Lane. Visit him and the rest of our team in person to find out which rinse is right for your smile.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff ?

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.

The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.

I had so much built up anxiety from not going to regular dental check ups like I probably should have but the staff was phenomenal! They all made me feel comfortable, didn't judge me, and had great hospitality. The hygentist was sweet, and gentle. I have not experienced that in a long time. I'm actually excited to go back in a few months for another cleaning. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt like I chose the right place to go.

This is the second time I’ve gone here and I’m still blown away by the service and attention to detail. Prior to these guys, I used to dread dental visits. At this office, they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We just had our first child three weeks ago and I had to bring him with. I hoped that he would sleep through, but of course he woke up as soon as I showed up for the appt. He was hungry, but instead of getting upset with sticking to time schedules, they encouraged me to make sure he ate enough and burped before we started. He was still fussy, so their receptionist (she is amazing) held him while their dental hygienist (she was also awesome) did my x-rays and then we tucked him in the chair with me during the cleaning. Love it! My teeth are super shiny clean and both this mamma and her baby are very satisfied customers. ^_^

Fight Bad Breath with These 4 Simple Tricks

Bad breath, or halitosis, is probably the ultimate social faux pas. Save face socially by following these four rules for sweet breath.

1. Drink Lots Of Water

Dry mouth leads to a proliferation of bacteria. All those germs can raise a big stink! Keeping your mouth hydrated is one of your first lines of defense in keeping halitosis at bay.

Tasty and refreshing beverages may be high in sugar, caffeine, and acids that can actually dry you out and damage your teeth. Swap out some of your favorite drinks for water as often as you can.

2. Add Some Spice To Your Smile

Natural herbs and spices are great ways to freshen breath and have been used by many cultures for centuries to do just that.

Chewing gum may contain sugar that’s just bad news for your teeth. To give your breath a sweet and clean scent after meals, opt to add things into your diet like:

  • Fennel
  • Cloves
  • Mint leaves
  • Parsley
  • Cinnamon
  • Cardamom
3. Brush Daily

Pure and simple, great oral hygiene is one of the best ways to keep your breath fresh. Letting plaque buildup for hours on end won’t do you any social favors! A quick rinse before you leave the house isn’t sufficient. Make regular brushing and flossing a solid part of your routine to maintain a healthy and sweet-smelling smile.

4. Visit A Dentist

Bad breath could be an indicator of something far more serious, especially if nothing seems to work to fight it. Visit Dr. Jason Lane for a smile evaluation to find out whether your bad breath struggles are due to a dental infection or gum disease.

Vitamin C – Why Essential to Your Family’s Smiles

Like any concerned parent, you want the best for your family in terms of nutrition. Not only that, but you want to make sure that all the equipment that processes the nutrients is working smoothly. This mean having healthy teeth to chew food with!

Vitamin C plays a very important role in your family members’ overall health as well as in keeping their teeth strong.

Why Get Vitamin C?

This vitamin is important in the formation of connective tissues like bone and cartilage. It boosts the immune system to fight disease and promotes healing. Every single person’s body needs a fresh supply of vitamin C on a daily basis, since we aren’t built to store it for long.

Where To Find Vitamin C

If your family has a hard time accessing fresh fruit and vegetable sources of vitamin C, then a supplement may be in order.

Where possible, try to get this mineral in food sources like:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Red peppers
  • Oranges and grapefruits
  • Strawberries
  • Carrots

Don’t rely on fruit juices since they tend to be too acidic, which is bad for teeth.

How Vitamin C Affects Smiles

Even in the cleanest of mouths, gums lacking in vitamin C can easily bleed. That’s one way to know that you could have a deficiency of vitamin C.

Your body needs this vitamin to strengthen the bone and tissues anchoring teeth in place. If infection sets in, lots of vitamin C can help keep it at bay. This makes it a key ingredient in the fight against gingivitis.

Should You Get a Denture?

You might be considering a denture if:

  • Your natural teeth are causing you a lot of trouble
  • You have few or no natural teeth left
  • You had a serious accident that damaged a lot of your teeth

Dentures have been the go-to solution for missing teeth for a very long time. But as dentistry has evolved, new techniques and treatment options have emerged.

Partial Dentures

You might be missing several teeth, but that’s not always an excuse to simply pull the good ones left over.

A partial denture supports false teeth on a frame so that they fill in the empty spots. The denture uses your existing natural teeth for support.

Dental Bridges

Don’t like the idea of taking a partial in and out?

Go for a more “fixed” option with a fixed dental bridge.

Bridges span gaps between teeth that are missing one or two neighbors between them. They stay anchored in place with the help of dental crowns on a couple existing teeth.

Implants

Dental implants are ideal for replacing a single tooth. But they’re also great for anchoring dentures and bridges. An implant is a permanent and very secure solution. It appeals to people who want the most natural and easy-to-care for smile possible.

Classic dentures could be the perfect solution for some people. But you should keep your mind open to other possibilities that better meet your needs.

Dentures And Denture Alternatives In Wasilla

To find out which tooth-replacement option is right for you, contact Dr. Jason Lane. He will gladly have a relaxed one-on-one discussion with you to review your situation and suggest a replacement option that will suit your lifestyle.

How Do Crowns Stay On Your Teeth?

Looking at a traditional crown, it might appear to be a piece of metal hammered right over the tooth. However, that’s not actually how it works. The process for dental crowns is far more complex than most people realize.

Basic Crown Process

First, our dentist trims your tooth to get rid of any damaged parts. It’s just like taking the peel off an orange! Next, Dr. Lane takes an impression to see how the tooth is supposed to fit in your bite. He uses this mold to design the “cap” outside of your mouth.

The next step is to check the fit of the finished crown. It slips over your tooth like a glove and makes it look whole again. If that looks good, Dr. Lane cements it in place.

What If Your Crown Comes Off?

If a cap pops off your tooth, you’ll notice that your tooth looks like a stubby cone. It may or may not be sensitive, but there’s no need to panic as long as it’s not causing pain.

Try to clean out the inside of your crown, checking for pieces of broken tooth. If you can, gently place it back onto your tooth. Visit your local drugstore to pick up a temporary dental cement. This will help keep your crown secure until Dr. Lane can replace it for you.

Need A New Dental Crown?

At Lane Family Dentistry, we provide a variety of restorations designed to last for many years while enhancing the natural beauty of your smile. Dr. Lane will help you decide on the crown that’s right for you when you schedule a consultation with our team. Call today to get started!

Fantastic customer service! Everybody there is very friendly and easy to talk to. They explained everything that was going on with my teeth, provided a plan to get them back in good shape, and cleaned em up real nice. It may have been a while since my last trip to a dentist, but I don't remember the visits being so relaxing.

Great atmosphere, staff, and dentist. I had a bad experience the last time I went to the dentist so I was petrified to go in but this place was totally relieving. Me and my family will always be coming here with our dental needs.

My husband and I recently found Lane Family Dental. We are both so pleased with their professionalism, modern equipment and outstanding care. The people at the front and Dr. Lane's dental assistant are bright, cheeful and professional as well. Living in Talkeetna we are so pleased they have two offices, one being in Willow which is quite convenient. Thank you Lane Family Dental for providing such great care to the Mat-Su Valley.

I'm pretty self conscious about my teeth, when I went into Lane Family Dental I felt very comfortable, and welcomed as soon as I opened the door. The staff here are amazing! I also enjoy how customer based the office is with refreshments, massage chairs and Netflix. After 10 years of trying to find a good dentist, Dr. Lane is by far the best.

I had so much built up anxiety from not going to regular dental check ups like I probably should have but the staff was phenomenal! They all made me feel comfortable, didn't judge me, and had great hospitality. The hygentist was sweet, and gentle. I have not experienced that in a long time. I'm actually excited to go back in a few months for another cleaning. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt like I chose the right place to go.

This is the second time I’ve gone here and I’m still blown away by the service and attention to detail. Prior to these guys, I used to dread dental visits. At this office, they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and happy. We just had our first child three weeks ago and I had to bring him with. I hoped that he would sleep through, but of course he woke up as soon as I showed up for the appt. He was hungry, but instead of getting upset with sticking to time schedules, they encouraged me to make sure he ate enough and burped before we started. He was still fussy, so their receptionist (she is amazing) held him while their dental hygienist (she was also awesome) did my x-rays and then we tucked him in the chair with me during the cleaning. Love it! My teeth are super shiny clean and both this mamma and her baby are very satisfied customers. ^_^

Prepare Your Child For Their First Dental Visit

Your child’s initial dental appointment can be a nerve-wracking one! Dr. Jason Lane and our team love kids and we know that it can be hard for them to understand what’s going on. Dental care, however, is essential to your child’s healthy and happy smile.

Here are some ways you can work with us to make your little one’s first visit a relaxing one.

Talk it Up Positively

Your child will pick up on your feelings about the appointment. Try to keep your tone upbeat and casual. Don’t give them anything to worry about by using “trigger” words like “hurt” or “afraid.” Even if you say “this won’t hurt” or “don’t be afraid,” your son or daughter will probably single out just those bad words and wonder whether there is anything they should be concerned about.

Get Them Used to a Healthy Smile Routine

Little kids who are used to having mom or dad clean their teeth are usually okay with letting a dentist check their mouths. In terms your child can understand, help them to see how a dental visit connects to their healthy smile.

Trust Us to Know What to Do

If you’re looking for a qualified pediatric dentist in Wasilla, you’re not going to find any better than Dr. Lane. Lane Family Dentistry specialists have combined decades of experience in treating kids. We know just what needs to be done so that we get the information necessary for an accurate diagnosis and successful treatment.

We can help your child a lot more easily with your support! Contact our team today to learn more.

About a year or so ago I discovered Lane Dental. Due to circumstances in my life I hadn’t been to a dentist in a really long time. They were very caring and kind. Since then I’ve had some teeth removed and am currently having a partial made. They have been patiently working with me and my insurance. Asia has been wonderful to work with for my scheduling and Dr. lane has been so kind and gentle. His assistants have been a real pleasure also. Thank you to the entire staff ?
