Teeth. Dental veneers

Dental veneers are a way to give your teeth a makeover without having to undergo any major dental work.

Nowadays, the health of our teeth and the way they look is very important and that is why we try to take care of them as much as possible. Dental veneers are made of porcelain or composite resin, and are matched to the color of your natural teeth. They are placed on the front or back of your teeth to cover the gaps between them or repair damage caused by decay.

The procedure is performed in one office visit, and you can usually expect about two weeks of recovery time before resuming normal activities.

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry that can be used to correct the appearance of your teeth. They are a great option for patients who don't want or can't afford to perform a dental treatment expensive on your smile, but you still want to improve it. Veneers are made of porcelain, which is stronger and more durable than natural tooth enamel. They are placed over the patient's existing teeth, and then bonded with a bonding agent. The color of the veneer usually matches any natural tooth color of each patient's teeth.

In which cases are veneers used?

Veneers are often used for esthetic reasons, such as:

  • Improve the aesthetics of your smile by covering discolored or chipped teeth
  • Make the appearance of your mouth more symmetrical by correcting gaps between teeth
  • Strengthening weak teeth

Types of dental veneers

There are two types of dental veneers. On the one hand we have porcelain veneers and on the other hand we have ceramic veneers.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain is the traditional choice for veneers, and it is what you will find on many people's teeth. Porcelain veneers are made from a type of clay that is fired at extremely high temperatures. The results are beautiful: a smooth, shiny surface that looks like your natural teeth.

Ceramic veneers

Ceramic veneers are newer than porcelain veneers, but they are also much more expensive and take longer to install. Ceramic veneers have a smoother appearance than porcelain veneers because they do not have pores on the surface that collect dust or food particles like the pores of porcelain. They are usually more expensive because they require special machines to make them...

Dental veneers are an excellent way to improve your smile. Among the advantages they can offer, we find:

  • They can be adapted to almost any tooth, so they do not require crowns or bridges to correct crooked or discolored teeth.
  • They are reversible, which means you can remove them if you decide you no longer like them.
  • They are less expensive than other treatments, including the teeth whitening and implants

However, it is true that depending on the type of dental veneer chosen, it may be more or less expensive or require more work for its placement or care.
