Dental Veneers

Dental veneers, commonly known as dental contact lenses, are thin, very strong, cap-like veneers that adhere perfectly to the surface of the teeth, transforming your smile in an aesthetic and harmonious way. Dental veneers can be made from a variety of biocompatible materials, the best known and most commonly used being composite resin and all-ceramic.

Clinical Cases

Before the veneer is placed on the tooth, it undergoes a slight preparation so that it can be properly bonded to the original tooth.
In this way, the tooth and the veneer become one, increasing its strength and also correcting its shape, volume and colour.
Normally, these caps are placed on teeth to improve their colour, shape, orientation or size. The perfect smile we are use to see in the celebrity world is usually achieved with these veneers.

Dental veneer treatments should be performed by dentists who specialise in the field of cosmetic oral rehabilitation, in order to maximise the aesthetic results and naturalness of the smile. Ceramic/porcelain is the material of choice as its properties ensure that the colour and shape of your new smile will not change over time. With this treatment, each piece is individually created in a dental laboratory after a consultation to analyse the ideal shape of each veneer. The final result is shown to you digitally to ensure that the treatment meets your expectations!

Although this is a conversational approach, veneers are recommended on teeth that really need them and you must commit to maintaining a strict standard of oral hygiene.

What are the indications for dental veneers?

• To increase the size of teeth for people with diastemas (spaces between teeth)
• Teeth that are shaped differently from one another
• Teeth with a significant colour change, for example because they are stained, discoloured or darkened and cannot usually be corrected by bleaching.
• Teeth that have suffered a lot of wear and tear during their lifetime.
• Fractured teeth as a result of trauma

Often, after orthodontic treatment, it is necessary to coadjuvant with dental veneers to achieve a complete transformation of the shape of your smile.

How are dental ceramic veneers placed?

An assessment appointment is held during which you and the dentist analyse the case in detail, in order to understand your objectives and the different options that can be followed. Each person is looking for different results and it is essential to meet everyone’s expectations, always giving advice on what is recommended.
During this consultation, it is essential to check that your oral health is assured for the veneers to be fitted. Any possible problems, such as cavities, root canal discharge or other complications, must be treated before the veneers are fitted.
Using digital technology, a dentist can imitate the approximate final result and show it to you. This allows him or her to make adjustments based on your expectations, so that you get a unique and personalized result!

Dental preparation appointment

During a second appointment, the dentist will prepare the teeth in a conservative manner that has been studied in advance. During this appointment, it is also necessary to place the temporary dental veneers, while waiting for the dental laboratory to finish each of the final ceramic pieces with the utmost care and attention to detail!

Appointment for the placement of the veneers

At a third appointment, the time comes to proceed with the installation of the definitive pieces. A fitting takes place, during which the dentist makes sure that you are satisfied with the final result, then comes the bonding of the dental veneers to the teeth as well as final adjustments if necessary.

Are dental veneers permanent?

When veneers are fitted they can last for at least 20 years, it is always important that you follow all the hygiene care recommended by the dentist during consultations for this to happen. Follow-up appointments and checks over the years are extremely important. If you follow all the doctor’s instructions, the ceramic/porcelain veneers will not change shape or colour.
