Porcelain veneers, a natural cosmetic treatment to improve your dental aesthetics

Treatment with porcelain teeth veneers consists of the application or bonding of a thin layer of porcelain or composite (as a contact lens) on the external face of the teeth with the aim of harmonising them, changing their colour, texture, shape, even their position and, therefore, improving their appearance.

The placement of porcelain dental veneers is a dental treatment in which the outermost part of the tooth is replaced by porcelain with highly aesthetic properties, similar to natural enamel. It is the most requested treatment of all the different dental aesthetic techniques.

Non invasive porcelain veneers to improve the appearance of your mouth

Aesthetic porcelain veneers are the cosmetic dental treatment that many film and television stars undergo in order to achieve the best possible aesthetics, and they can be performed on almost any patient who requires them.

Based on this fact, and as long as the discrepancies are not excessive, the treatment of veneers for teeth can correct aesthetic problems due to a malposition of the front teeth, without resorting to orthodontics and obtaining good results in a relatively short period of time. This makes it a treatment in high demand and quicker to perform than other treatments.

Dental veneers to replace teeth that are visible to others

When tooth preparation for porcelain veneer, dental veneers are placed on the outside of the tooth with the intention of improving its appearance. In this way, a dental rejuvenation is carried out that allows for the modification of some aspects such as the shape, size, position or colour of a person’s teeth.

This system is a very effective solution for correcting teeth that are slightly crooked/misaligned or for solving the fracture of teeth or those that have worn down/suffered dental wear or darkened with the passage of time. In addition, it is possible to bond them to a single tooth or several teeth, adapting to the needs of each patient.

Whitening techniques can substantially improve aesthetic problems caused by tetracycline staining, however, the most successful and definitive treatment for this aesthetic problem is obtained with the subsequent placement of porcelain veneers.

Dental veneers: steps prior to fitting them

Veneers are small works of art handcrafted in just half a millimetre that are bonded as a new layer of natural enamel.

Before the veneers are fitted, it is necessary to carry out a good study by analysing models and photographs in order to make a SMILE DESIGN. This design can be carried out either digitally (computerised design) or analogically (by diagnostic wax-up) in order to preview the final result.

This design must be based, among other aspects, on the morphology of the patient’s face to achieve a balanced smile and facial harmony.

After the selective reduction and impressions of the teeth, the patient will wear acrylic temporaries made on the same day in the clinic, as a preview of the final result, while the veneers are fabricated in the dental laboratory.

Veneers are thin pieces of translucent ceramic. They must have a uniform and adequate thickness of 0.3-0.5 mm to be resistant to fracture, so it is necessary, in certain cases, to make a small reduction of the tooth, as well as to control this minimum ceramic thickness, avoid overcontouring of the teeth and obtain greater naturalness once they are cemented.

Eva Berroeta Dental Clinic, the best dentist for porcelain veneers

Dental veneers are a system that is increasingly in demand. This is due to their multiple advantages, among which we must highlight that:

  • It is not always necessary to grind the tooth
  • The type of material used makes them very resistant
  • They achieve a very natural look
  • It is a painless process

Veneers are small works of art handcrafted in just half a millimetre that adhere as a new layer of natural enamel, but once they are in place they must be cared for:

  • Avoid biting down on food or hard objects
  • By using unloading splints when practising contact sports or when sleeping, especially in bruxist patients.
  • Performing regular check-ups and maintenance with your dentist at least once a year.
  • By means of a correct oral hygiene to preserve gingival health, thus avoiding possible recessions, of course, the appearance of caries.

That is why at the Eva Berroeta Dental Clinic we are committed to their use, adapting to patient demand and always offering the best solutions. To do this, we collaborate with the best ceramists in the country, obtaining results that will satisfy the patient.
