Composite aka Bonding veneers
BONDING veneers are performed in the office with highly esthetic composite resin and are usually done in a single appointment. Composite resins are a synthetic material initially developed to replace metal restorations (“metal shims” or amalgams) and which have evolved improving their properties.
The resins have several advantages such as offering good aesthetics; can be done in a single appointment; its cost is generally lower than ceramic restorations and it can be easily repaired and modified. However, they have certain disadvantages, since over time they can lose their shine and polish becoming dull, they can become pigmented with certain foods and / or drinks; can be delaminated or fractured and are conceptually less resistant than ceramics.
- 2 days procedure in the dentist office.
- Last between 5 to 7 years .
- Requires maintenance every year with your personal dentist.
- Composite veneers are cheaper than Porcelain Veneers.
Ceramic or porcelain veneers
Are thin adhesive restorations, which are performed in two or more dental appointments, since the intervention of the dental laboratory is required for their preparation. These restorations are considered minimally invasive, as it is generally not necessary to wear down the tooth.
Ceramic veneers have more advantages than resin veneers, as they have better aesthetic properties; they are highly resistant to fractures; they have a higher survival and success rate. They do not pigment, they do not lose their polish, shine and color.
However, they also have certain disadvantages such as the need for several appointments, they are more expensive than resin veneers and if necessary, they are more difficult to repair.
Currently, the material of choice for the production of ceramic veneers or lenses is Lithium Disilicate.
If the patient needs or wants to have veneers, the best advice is to think of the treatment as a long-term investment in oneself, in our own appearance and our own smile.
- 2-7 Days procedure of laboratory.

ABOUT DENTAL CROWNS IN MEDELLIN – COLOMBIA
The part of the tooth visible in the mouth is known as the crown. As it is used to eat it is essential that it be strong and hard. Depending on the case, it can be natural or artificial. The latter, which is placed on a tooth or dental implant, is ideal for those who have problems in some of their teeth. And it is that, they play an important role in the aesthetic recovery processes and return to the patient the maximum functionality in the chewing processes. At VENEERS COLOMBIA we explain what their types are so that, if you need any, you can choose the most suitable one together with the dentist.
Before knowing its classification, it is important that you bear in mind that this procedure is carried out on the molars and premolars, since they are the parts that suffer the most over the years. These are necessary in cases like the following:
- When a tooth has excess reconstruction material and little remaining healthy tooth tissue.
- In worn, weak, broken or very dark colored teeth.
- When an aesthetic requirement is required, in terms of shape and size.
- When placing an implant.
Types of artificial dental crowns
Artificial crowns differ, mainly, by the materials with which they have been manufactured. In this sense, the most common are the following:
- Metal-porcelain crowns. They are made of metal (inner part) and porcelain coated (outer part). They are usually placed on back teeth, to prevent the metal from being seen through the gums. Their main advantage is that they are resistant.
- Zirconium crowns. Being a material capable of withstanding daily wear and tear, they are resistant. Also, light and aesthetic, since they are translucent and reflect light in the same way as a natural tooth. It is an excellent option for those patients who may develop allergies or adverse reactions.
- Metal crowns. They are made of gold, palladium, nickel or chromium. Although they are long-lasting, these days they are not widely used.
- Porcelain crowns. They are used to restore the aesthetics of the anterior teeth. And this is the one that provides the best combination of natural colors. However, they are more fragile than metal-porcelain or zirconia, for example. For those patients who have Oralprima dental insurance, undergoing this treatment usually costs 50% less than usual.
- Resin crowns. Being a soft material, they are usually used temporarily. They are ideal for protecting teeth that have been carved in the period between measurements and cementation of the dental crown.
Artificial dental crowns must be placed by an expert, since the natural teeth have to be “carved” first and then the artificial caps that mimic the appearance of teeth must be placed on them.
How do bridges work?
If you are missing one or more teeth, your dentist will recommend a bridge. The gaps between the missing teeth cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the gaps over time, causing an inappropriate bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
Bridges are often used to replace one or more missing teeth, occupying the space left by them. The dentist cements the bridges to the natural teeth or to the implants that surround the empty space. These teeth, called abutments, serve to anchor the bridge. Then you attach a replacement tooth (in the missing space), this tooth is called a pontic, and it is attached to the crowns that cover the abutment teeth. As with crowns, there are various materials for bridges. Your dentist can help you decide which one to use, based on the location of the missing tooth or teeth, its function, cosmetic considerations, and cost. The color of porcelain or ceramic bridges is matched to that of your natural teeth.
How are crowns and bridges made?
Before making a crown or bridge, the dentist must reduce the size of the tooth or teeth so that the crown or bridge will fit properly over it. The dentist will then take a dental impression to provide an exact mold for the crown or bridge. If you are using porcelain, the dentist will determine the correct stain so that the color of the crown or bridge matches that of your teeth.
Using this impression, a dental laboratory makes your crown or bridge from the material specified by the dentist. While the permanent crown or bridge is being performed, a temporary crown or bridge will be placed to cover the prepared tooth.
How long do crowns and bridges last?
While crowns and bridges can last a lifetime, they sometimes loosen or come off. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your crown or bridge is to practice good oral hygiene. If the teeth or bone that support a bridge are damaged by dental disease, the bridge will lose support. Keep your gums and teeth healthy by brushing with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, using the dental dam and mouthwash daily. Also consult the dentist and the hygienist periodically for check-ups or professional controls and cleanings.
To prevent damage to your new crown or bridge, avoid chewing hard food, ice, or other hard objects.
When the permanent crown or bridge is ready, you will remove the temporary crown or bridge and cement the new one to the prepared tooth.

Dental implants are also known as artificial teeth, and they are the ideal substitutes to replace the natural root of the tooth, they serve as supports for other dental pieces, such as: crowns, bridges, prostheses, etc. They are normally made of titanium since it is a biocompatible material and does not generate rejection from the body.
With the advancement of technology, it is now possible to implant teeth in a safe, fast and almost painless way. Implant prices vary depending on the number of units to be installed and the complexity of the area. Usually they are inserted directly into the maxilla or mandible and then the bone grows which is fully attached to the facial structure.
Implants are currently the most used option to replace a dental piece and a definitive solution is delivered to patients. Many times before performing a surgery of this type, it is necessary to proceed with a bone graft so that the implanted screw has an excellent fixation.
Types of implants
In dental implants we find two main types:
1 – Endo-osseous: they are the most used and morally they are fixed by means of surgery to the jaw or maxilla, this type of implants has three main forms that are the following:
Screw (It is the implant most used by specialists)
2 – Subperiosteal (juxta-osseous): these are metal arches that are attached to the jaw bone. This type of implant is normally used in patients whose bone development is minimal.
Success conditions for implants
Having a good amount of bone, this is evaluated by the specialist using diagnostic tests before proceeding with the surgery.
Not having infections at the time of the dental implant procedure.
Have the procedure performed by a specialist in implantology.
That the implant is from an internationally recognized brand.
That the crown or piece that is placed later to replace the upper part of the tooth is placed by a specialist and also has high quality standards.
The main risk is that the body rejects the implant or it does not adhere properly to the bone. These cases with a correct procedure are mitigated by 99%.
What material is a dental implant made of?
At veneerscolombia.com we use biocompatible titanium dental implants. Subsequently, a prosthesis made of different materials will be placed that will replace the lost tooth.
What are the pre-dental implant tests?
Once the dentist has determined that you need a dental implant, at Veneerscolombia.com, we will do some tests so that everything goes well.
The first thing that the specialist does is a radiographic examination that allows to see the state of the bone and verify if it is possible to perform the implant.
In addition, a clinical examination is performed, where we assess the general comedtions of the patient’s oral status.
Types of treatments
Single dental implants
The single dental implant is the best alternative to solve the loss or extraction of a tooth.
Don’t give up on your teeth: all teeth are necessary. If you have lost one, do not hesitate and go to our dental clinics. Our specialists will be in charge of carrying out a totally free diagnosis of your mouth and will recommend the most appropriate solution for your needs.

It is a simple process that will allow you to recover all the functionality of your teeth, and gaining aesthetics.
Bridge on dental implants
When the patient needs to replace or has lost several pieces, we can replace them with a bridge supported on two or more dental implants. This treatment is carried out where there is a loss of two or more teeth.
Bridge procedure on dental implants

With this we manage to provide full functionality to your new teeth and thus recover a natural and healthy appearance.
Fixed prosthesis on dental implants
The fixed dental prosthesis on implants replaces all the teeth of one or both arches.
If you are missing all your teeth, this is a totally personalized option for each patient that allows you to obtain great results and improve dental aesthetics.
Procedure of a fixed prosthesis on implants

Overdenture on dental implants
The overdenture model for full dentures is a solution that gives you security in a simple way. This type of removable prosthesis is anchored on the implants to improve support, retention and stability.
Procedure for overdenture on implants
- We distribute four biocompatible titanium dental implants along the gum, which simulate the function of the dental roots, securing the teeth to the bone.
- On these “new roots”, we fix a metallic structure in which the complete prosthesis is fitted by means of clamps. So you have the tranquility and aesthetics of a fixed denture, and also the freedom to extract, reposition and clean your prosthesis with ease.
Hybrid prosthesis on dental implants
When the lack of all the teeth has caused the bone to lose volume, the most appropriate solution is a hybrid prosthesis screwed on implants.
Procedure of a hybrid prosthesis on implants

- Next, we fix the implants with a prosthesis with a metal base and a resin structure, with all the teeth.
So you have an aesthetic solution, which recovers the expressiveness and functionality of your mouth in an economical way.

DENTAL IMPLANTS DEFINITELY IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE
SINCE THEY ALLOW:
Regain functional comfort, reducing chewing and speech difficulties.
Being more stable than removable alternatives, the implants guarantee a better chewing function and facilitate the digestion of food. In addition, they allow to recover the normal locution.
- Obtain a good aesthetic result.
Implants replace one or more teeth, blend harmoniously into the mouth and adapt optimally to the gingiva. Implants look identical to adjacent natural teeth and bone is preserved. This allows the patient’s face to retain its natural shape and expression.
- Maintain the integrity of adjacent healthy teeth, avoiding having to file them.
In the cases of placement of bridges or removable prostheses, it is necessary to file the adjacent pieces. Thanks to dental implants, these pieces can be preserved. This advantage considerably prolongs the long-term life of teeth.
- Ensure good tolerance.
- The implants are made of biocompatible materials.
Avoid the discomfort associated with removable prostheses.
- Lack of stability, hooks, deterioration of the adjacent natural teeth, possibility of difficulties in chewing and alteration of speech.
- Preserve bone structure.
By using the jaw as a fixation point, the implant helps preserve bone, reducing bone loss that occurs after tooth extraction. In addition, the load that the bone receives during chewing stimulates it and prevents its resorption. On the contrary, if the bone is not used regularly, it runs the risk of degrading.
- Recover well-being, comfort and quality of life.
The implants are integrated into the bone, and are perceived as own teeth and not as foreign bodies, thus providing a feeling of comfort. The patient regains self-esteem when talking, eating or laughing.
- Provide a more durable solution, by permanently and permanently replacing missing teeth.
The long-term success of implants is assured as long as their placement is done professionally, there is regular follow-up by a dentist and the patient maintains strict oral hygiene.
FAQS OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
How the dental implant is held in the bone?
By a biological process known as Osseointegration, described by Professor Bränemark in the 1950s, through which the body establishes a direct connection between the bone and the implant surface. When osseointegration has occurred, the implant is firmly attached to the bone and can support a prosthesis to meet all functional and aesthetic requirements as if it were a healthy natural tooth. Another characteristic of osseointegration is that it is very stable over time, which is why these treatments offer satisfactory results that are enjoyed for many years.
Why choose dental implants over removable dentures?
When a person loses one or more teeth, they have numerous options at their disposal to solve it, but without a doubt, the best option in the short and long term is to use dental implants.
The removable prosthesis was very successful before the advances in implantology and in fact, it still remains a great solution for those people who, due to their dental conditions, do not meet the requirements to wear dental implants.
Dental implants offer a series of advantages that make them the most recommended choice:
Once the osseointegration process has been successfully completed, dental implants have a perfect fixation, and can last for many years in good condition.
Saving on dental health can be very expensive. Removable prostheses are tailored to the patient, but they do not really belong in the mouth (they are not 100% integrated) and that carries a series of risks.
Dental implants are undoubtedly much more comfortable than other dental replacement alternatives. Implants only require the same care as a natural tooth and since they are fixed in the mouth, no different cleaning is necessary than the rest of the teeth, so the brush and dental floss will be enough to keep them in perfect condition.
Removable prostheses, not being fixed in the oral cavity, can cause greater problems when chewing or speaking. In addition, they need to be removed for dental hygiene tasks and require special cleaning.
Dental implants guarantee a better state of dental health than removable dentures.
Removable prostheses are fixed on teeth in good condition and the effort made by natural teeth to hold the removable prosthesis can deteriorate their condition, causing them to wear out and move.
When losing a tooth, a process of bone loss can begin, affecting both the functional and aesthetic aspects, even modifying the shape of the patient’s face.
To avoid problems of this type, a dental implant is recommended that, occupying that space, restores the functionality of the maxilla and the original appearance of the face.
In addition, dental implants allow to achieve an image very similar to that of natural teeth, since, after placing them, dental crowns are placed that perfectly imitate the appearance of the teeth.

But let’s start with the basics
What are veneers?
In essence, a veneer is a thin sheet that is permanently bonded to your tooth, with the intention of changing its shape, color, and position. You can use a single veneer for a single tooth, or fully cover all teeth, there is also the option of having a partial veneer, this means that it does not cover the entire tooth, it all depends on each case and of course on your budget.
Can everyone get veneers?
The dentist is the one who has the last word, but in the vast majority of cases, with healthy gums and good dental hygiene, the patient is suitable for veneers if he wants to change something he does not like about his teeth. For some cases, a previous treatment may be necessary in order to prepare the mouth to receive the veneers. If you are still in doubt be sure to see enough before and after photos of the veneers so that I know the dentist’s style.
What are the different types of veneers?
Now if we get into the matter, there are basically 2 types of veneers, both are excellent, but there are some differences that are worth clarifying to have a totally clear picture.
It is the Top treatment of dental cosmetics, they are thin layers of porcelain, which adhere to the size of the teeth, are more resistant and last longer, basically they are made of a better material than composite veneers, but they are also much more expensive .
All types of veneers require periodic review by the dentist to keep them in perfect condition.
Porcelain veneers are made one by one, tailored to your tooth in a laboratory that is exclusively dedicated to this, it is a delicate job since each tooth is unique, almost like a fingerprint, the average manufacturing time of veneers porcelain is approximately 7 days in Colombia, here they work really fast, in other countries it can be much more.
You can choose the shade of your teeth, that is, how white you want them to look, 80% percent choose the whitest shade possible BL1. It’s a matter of taste, I suppose that if you are completely renovating your teeth, you want it to be something that people notice, I do not judge them, I did it too.
Composite veneers are made of composite resin, directly on the tooth, they do not need to be cast in a laboratory, it is the same dentist who gives them the shape and color on your tooth, being a one-person process is therefore cheaper (you do not need a complete laboratory to create them), that is an advantage, but composite veneers have some disadvantages when compared to porcelain. They are weaker and prone to staining and also have less longevity, they last less because the material wears out, the approximate life time is 5 to 6 years, which is not bad, it is the normal duration of the material in which they are made. , the form they have depends to a great extent on the experience and skill of the dentist.
Are your teeth shaved to make veneers?
Yes, in the case of porcelain, but it is usually a minimum of 0.2 mm, it all depends on how the dentist finds your teeth, this is necessary to give the tooth the space it needs to be able to fix the veneer, 0.2 mm is almost imperceptible, Our dentists have a very conservative philosophy, nobody wants to damage your natural teeth, but you should know that if a light shave is necessary, the procedure requires it. In the case of Composite veneers in most cases it is not necessary.
Veneers Vs lumineers:
If you have spent enough time searching Google for veneers, surely you have come across the term “lumineers” but what about this? It is a specific brand of veneers, an alternative solution and they are presented as a “more affordable” option but it all “depends. de ”, since not everyone is an ideal patient for lumineers, it also depends on whether your dentist offers this treatment or not.
How much do veneers cost in Colombia?
Here they are too cheap, it is said that you can save between 60% and 70% of the cost that you would have for the same dental treatment in the United States, and with a quality that can be many times higher, we are talking about that for $ 7000 dollars you can make all the change from your mouth to porcelain, or for $ 3500 to Composite Veneers.
But why are dental veneers so cheap in Colombia and if they are of good quality?
Absolutely yes, dentistry in Colombia is of excellent and hight quality that you can be sure and the reason that they are so cheap is in the first place the currency exchange, simply your dollars here are worth more, between 3 and 4 times more. The other reason is the high competition between dental clinics, there are very good dentists offering their services, this makes them forced to make promotions and discounts to attract the attention of the international public.
Do i still need to brush dental veneers?
Please! Keep brushing your teeth, do not believe that because you have porcelain or composite teeth you are exempt from washing your mouth, it is essential and now more than ever, you should go to the dentist for control at least twice a year, he will check the status of the veneer in detail, he will polish it, he will see how your gums respond, this is absolutely important. You must take care of your veneers equal to or even more than your natural teeth, the duration of the treatment depends on your care.

Dental veneers, whether made of composite or porcelain, are a treatment with high demand in Dental Aesthetics consultations. Their popularity is due to the fact that they offer a natural, fast and personalized solution to improve the appearance of the smile. But, in addition, patients value another of their essential aspects much: they are very durable.
Even so, so that we can keep them as long as possible, it is essential that the person be careful with them to avoid possible problems. It should not be forgotten that, no matter how resistant veneers offer today, they are still thin sheets of porcelain or composite. That is, they are a part adhered to the external face of the tooth, so we must take care of them as much or more than our own natural pieces.
What is the most durable type of dental veneer?
The daily care of the veneers is essential to ensure their durability, although due to the characteristics of the materials, some are more resistant than others.
Composite or Bonding dental veneers last a maximum of approximately 5 years.
However, porcelain ones are more resistant, lasting around 10 or 15 years if the person maintains them correctly.
Within this type of aesthetic porcelain veneers we usually distinguish between the two main brands –e.max and Lumineers–, both having the same duration.
Take care of your veneers like natural teeth
Do not forget that the veneers are glued to your pieces, so take care of them as if they were your own teeth.
How should dental veneers be cared for?
Despite having indicated the years that veneers last, do not forget that it is only possible to keep them in good condition if we follow a series of tips.
Therefore, we want to give you these indications related to the following aspects:
- Foods and drinks with coloring
Although this point is not important to take into account in the case of wearing porcelain veneers, it does play a fundamental role in the event that they are made of composite.
And it is that this material tends to stain with the passage of time and with the consumption of foods or drinks that have a lot of color.
For example, we refer to coffee, red wine, tea, cola, dark chocolate, red berries, curry, soy sauce …
Having composite dental veneers does not mean having to eliminate these foods and drinks from your diet, far from it.
However, in order for it to retain all its aesthetic properties, our recommendation is that you restrict its consumption as much as possible.
In contrast, porcelain veneers do not pose such problems.
This is because it is a material that does not lose its color or darken, in addition to preserving its aesthetic qualities for many years.
Smoking causes stains on natural teeth, which is why it inevitably affects composite veneers as well.
Therefore, if you wear this type of dental veneers, we advise you to be especially careful with cigarettes and eliminate, or at least reduce, their consumption.
As with strongly colored foods, tobacco does not affect the tone of porcelain veneers, as this material does not stain.
Despite this, keep in mind that tobacco is very harmful to the body in general and to oral health in particular.
If cared for correctly, porcelain dental veneers can last up to 15 years and not cause any problems in your day-to-day life.
Very hard or sticky foods
It is very important to keep this aspect in mind, regardless of the material with which our veneers are made.
Any very hard food – or even sticky – is a danger for aesthetic veneers because they run the risk of detaching or, even worse, breaking.
Examples of these foods could be certain nuts or snacks (kikos, roasted chickpeas …), hard nougat, raw carrot, ice cubes .
Also, pay attention to the way you bite into sandwiches or apples.
It is common to perform a lever movement that puts the integrity of your veneers at risk, so it is preferable to break them into pieces.
Oral hygiene routines are crucial to ensure optimal oral health in every way, as it allows us to maintain healthy teeth throughout life.
In the case of dental veneers, they help preserve them and retain their aesthetic properties for much longer.
In order to have a proper daily cleaning of your teeth and gums, we give you a series of tips:
- Brush your teeth after every meal.
- Floss after every brushing or at least on the last of the day (before bed).
- Use a mouthwash before going to sleep and after brushing your teeth.
- Go to your trusted dental hygienist for a professional oral cleaning at least once a year.
Chew on objects
There are people with little hobbies that, although they seem harmless, can greatly damage teeth and veneers.
It may not be your case, but one of these vices would be, for example, nibbling on pens or nails.
Use your teeth as a tool
On the other hand, there are times when we tend to use our teeth as if they were tools to open or break certain objects, such as packaging, shells .
In the same way: be careful with these bad dental habits, as they can cost you a veneer to peel or fracture.
People with bruxism clench their teeth involuntarily, especially at night or during times of stress.
For this reason, it is always recommended that these patients wear a discharge splint to help relax the muscles of the face and avoid jaw tension.
In addition to preventing pain and wear on the teeth that contact each other, the discharge splint will prevent the veneers from breaking.
Mouth guards are indicated for people who practice contact sports such as football, basketball, rugby, hockey, boxing, kickboxing or any martial art (jiu jitsu, karate, judo, taekwondo …).
But in the case of wearing dental veneers, it is a very effective protection to prevent fracture or fall in accidental shocks that occur in this type of sports.
If you have questions about what kind of mouth guard is the most suitable for you, you can consult with your dentist.
Maintenance and reviews
Although porcelain veneers do not require periodic maintenance, composite veneers do.
The maintenance consists of going to the specialist in Dental Aesthetics to carry out a polishing of the veneers.
The objective of these reviews is that the treatment lasts the previously mentioned time: 5 years.
The frequency with which these visits to the clinic should be made is set by the dentist based on each specific case.
Thus, a person who smokes should attend more regularly than a patient who does not.
Once you have the veneers already in place, it is important that you follow the instructions indicated by the specialist who has carried out your treatment.
Go to all the appointments and check-ups that I schedule you and follow all the instructions that they offer you regarding the care of the veneers.
He is the one who knows your case best, so he can give you a series of very useful and personalized advice.
