What are dental veneers?
Ultra-thin shells made from either porcelain or resin (Porcelain Veneers or Composite Veneers), these are used to renew the look of your teeth while restoring the strength of your dental enamel. They are attached directly onto your teeth with specific dental procedures, all custom-made to fit the contours of your smile.
Why should I use veneers?

How does the process of getting Porcelain Veneers work?
Porcelain Veneers can take 3 appointments to complete the entire process. We start by removing a half millimeter of your dental enamel cleaning the tooth to determine the correct shade of the veneer at this time. Using high-tech equipment, we will make an impression of the teeth which will be sent to a laboratory for the construction of your veneer.
Once your model has been created, we will remove the temporary, and clean the tooth thoroughly. Once is clean we cement the veneer onto your tooth carefully following the exact model contour closely, hardening the cement with a special light beam.
inally, we will remove any excess material and polish the veneer. Your smile will look brighter and natural instantly! Usually, we do not apply anesthesia during this procedure, still, it is available for low pain tolerance patients.
How does the process of getting Composite Veneers work?
Unlike Porcelain Veneers, which are a single-crafted veneer bonded to your tooth, Composite Veneers are added to the tooth in mouldable layers. The shade color is chosen and then the teeth are cleaned. Each layer is hardened with a light beam before the next one is applied, giving the shape and color desired to finally polish to give a natural look. Finally, all excess is removed and the veneer is polished again.
This procedure could take 5 to 7 hours on average to be complete. Usually, we do not apply anesthesia for these procedures, still, it is available for low pain tolerance patients.
How do I take care of veneers?
Luckily, maintaining veneers is fairly easy—just keep up a proper oral hygiene routine! We recommend:
- Brushing 3 times a day for 2 minutes.
- Flossing daily your teeth. (To avoid spots between the interdental spaces )
- Wearing a bite guard at night is a great way to protect them.
- Avoid eating hard foods like almonds, or cracking shells with the front veneers.
- Instead of biting some foods like apple or pear, preferably cut them in several pieces to avoid fractures.
- Professional cleaning every 6 months.
- Check for yearly follow up of your veneers to avoid possible issues.
