Veneers With A Fairhope, AL Dentist
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. Porcelain veneers are actually bits of porcelain that are 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.
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.
Porcelain veneers can be an incredible option for a number of situations, including a tooth that has formed improperly or there is coloration that is a bit off. You may also have a tooth that has become fractured or cracked, or there are gaps between your teeth that should be addressed. Even if you have tried tooth whitening to get rid of stains, veneers can be the next best option.
There are a number of advantages that come from having porcelain veneers put on, which include just how difficult it can be 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.
