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. Porcelain veneers are actually porcelain that is placed to create the look of natural teeth as a way of making the smile more bright and beautiful than ever before. It goes without saying that porcelain is the material of choice when you want to successfully change the shape, size and/or the color of the teeth for a great smile. Porcelain veneers can be an incredible option for a number of situations, including a tooth that is misshaped or if the color of your tooth is a bit off. You may also want veneers for cracked teeth or to fix gaps in between teeth. Even if you have tried whitening, veneers may be the next best option.
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. It is nearly impossible to tell that you have veneers because they look so much like natural teeth, thanks to the custom porcelain finish. Custom veneers will be able to resist a number of stains as well, including cigarette smoke, coffee and tea!
