Porcelain veneers can be an incredible option for a number of situations. Maybe you have a tooth that is a bit dicolored, or you have a tooth that is crooked, or you have gaps in your teeth that you want to fill. Even if you have tried whitening your teeth to get rid of yellow discoloration, veneers may be the better option! Veneers are made of porcelain that are placed on your natural tooth that create the natural look of your real teeth. Veneers will make your smile look better and brighter than before!
Whenever you see a model or some sort of celebrity that happens to have a smile that is perfectly bright, white and straight, it is more than likely that veneers have something to do with it. Everyone wants to have such an incredible smile! At Fairhope's Sweet Water Dentistry, Dr. Phillip Greer is known for doing porcelain veneers that are able to help bring on an incredible smile that you have always dreamt about.
Here's how it works: When putting on the veneers, only a very small layer of the original tooth will have to be removed prior to application. With the veneers, the natural teeth with remain almost completely intact with just a small portion that has to be modified in order to get a perfect fit. The bond that takes place in between the porcelain veneer and the original tooth is crucial. This bond provides both esthetic perfection as well as stability that is going to be crucial in order for the veneer to function properly. A bonding material that is light sensitive will be put into place in between the veneer and the tooth and then completely hardened by way of a curing light.
There are a number of advantages that come from having porcelain veneers! The main one is the fact that it is extremely difficult, or nearly impossible, to tell the difference between a real tooth and veneers! Custom veneers will be able to resist a number of stains as well, including cigarette smoke, coffee and tea. If you are interested in getting veneers, contact us at Sweet Water Dentistry!
