Porcelain Veneers Q & A
What are veneers?
Veneers help re-create the appearance of your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-fitted to your individual teeth, then one of the skilled cosmetic dentists at G. Nili, DMD bonds them to your existing teeth. Veneers cover up imperfections such as cracks, gaps, stains, or misshapen teeth. They can also restore frail teeth.
Veneers can be constructed out of resin composite materials, but porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain tends to do a better job replicating the look of your natural teeth enamel, too. One of the experienced dental team members explains your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.
What is the process for getting veneers?
After a meeting to talk through your veneer options and the results you’d like to see, you come back for a second appointment. A cosmetic dental specialist then removes a tiny layer of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to make sure the veneers bond and fit properly. After your teeth are ready, your dental specialist makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create custom veneers that are an exact fit for your mouth.
When your veneers are finished, you return to the office, and your veneers are fitted one by one over your existing teeth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, the dental expert applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. In no time your veneers are permanently in place, and you have a new and improved smile!
Why should I get veneers?

- Stain resistance

- Can lighten darker teeth
- Aesthetically pleasing with minimal dental work
