Veneers Q & A

Why should I consider veneers?

Veneers help re-create the appearance of your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. Dr. Nishime at Advanced Restorative Dentistry custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers hide defects such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. In addition, they help reinforce frail teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. One of the experienced dental team members explains your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What should I expect if I decide to get veneers?

After an initial consultation to discuss the type of veneers that are best for your teeth and the results you hope to achieve, you return for another appointment. Dr. Nishime 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, Dr. Nishime takes a mold of your teeth to create your individualized veneers in the dental lab.

When the veneers arrive from the lab, you return to the office and have them custom-fitted to each of your teeth. Once your teeth are entirely prepared for the bonding process, Dr. Nishime applies a unique adhesive and light beam. This step helps the cement bond firmly to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

What is great about veneers?

Veneers offer a natural-looking solution for broken, crooked, or misshapen teeth. Veneers also offer these advantages:

  • Resistance to stains
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Reinforce weak teeth
  • Less expensive than some other dental procedures like crowns
