Porcelain Veneers – Fairhope, AL

Create the Smile You’ve Always Dreamed of Having!

 

When it comes to enhancing your smile, many dentists offer some of the latest advancements in cosmetic dentistry. Whether it’s the strongest whitening gel yet or a new technique for directly bonding composite resin, they’re always working hard to offer you the best solutions possible. When you visit Dr. Drew Knight at Fairhope Modern Dental, you can get your smile’s imperfections covered with high-quality porcelain veneers! They offer a long-term solution to many issues that other cosmetic treatments can’t provide.

To learn if porcelain veneers are right for you, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment today!

What are Porcelain Veneers?

 

Candidates for porcelain veneers must have good oral health before they can receive any cosmetic treatments at all. That means you should not have any untreated tooth decay or gum disease before receiving porcelain veneers. Once Dr. Knight confirms that your mouth is healthy and ready for treatment, you’ll need to tell him that you’re okay with removing a small amount of enamel for placement. While removal is minimal, it’s still something to think about beforehand.

Once you’ve handled these two factors, you’ll start discussing your smile needs! Covering a single tooth or multiple teeth is incredibly straightforward with porcelain veneers!

How Can They Benefit My Smile?

Porcelain veneers are capable of hiding multiple imperfections at the same time, so you can consider them you’re one-stop solution for hiding any problems you have. With porcelain veneers, your dentist can:

  • Cover cosmetic chips or cracks sustained from trauma
  • Hide severe discoloration as a result of aging or other causes that teeth whitening won’t help
  • Make crooked teeth look straight, without the metal hardware
  • Remove gaps, whether they be in front or neighboring teeth
  • Make teeth appear larger, longer and more uniform with the rest of your smile

What to Expect During the Procedure

Since porcelain veneers are customized to match your natural teeth, your dentist works hard to make sure they have the correct shape, size and color based on your needs. During the first appointment, you’ll have your teeth measured and prepped so they can properly receive veneers. Then, you’ll have impressions taken so they can be sent to a dental lab for fabrication. During this time, you’ll wear temporary veneers to help you get acclimated to your future radiant smile!

After about two weeks, your veneers will be fully fabricated and ready for placement. After removing the temporaries, we’ll use a bonding solution to help the veneers adhere more effectively. Once placed, we’ll make sure that they meet your exact expectations and make adjustments as needed. With proper care, veneers can last between 10 and 15 years!
