It is always good to do some research before undergoing any dental treatment, for this reason we have created this post where we are answering the most common questions we are receiving about smile designs in Colombia.
They are thin and durable covers that adhere to the tooth to improve its appearance, there are different materials for their manufacture, the most common are porcelain and composite. Depending on the material, its price and duration vary.
Composite Veneers and Porcelain Veneers, the first is molded on each tooth manually, the second is performed by a specialized laboratory, then the dentist puts them on each corresponding tooth.
There are several factors to take into account, the most important is usually the price, porcelain veneers are more expensive and durable, they can last up to 15 years, or even longer if you are a careful person, composite veneers or also known as bonding veneers They are cheaper, since their manufacture depends on fewer people, but they also have a shorter duration, 5 to 7 years, they require more constant maintenance
They are a quick solution for people who are not happy with their current teeth, it totally improves the color, the shape, the spacing, the brightness, the effect on safety when speaking immediately.
How is the process to make me smile with veneers?
The process is simple, but it varies a bit depending on the Composite or Porcelain material in each link you will find how the process is in more detail for each one, you may also be interested in seeing how your first day would be to start the process.
It depends on each case, the dentist will review the state of your teeth and give you his point of view, it is recommended that they be even numbers for purely aesthetic factors, the usual thing is to offer packages of 20, 10 veneers above and 10 veneers below.
In the same way that you would take care of your normal teeth, washing them at least 3 times a day, using the dental wax properly, not biting hard things, do not do anything with your veneers that you would not do with your normal teeth and you will not have any problem.
Again this depends on the material in which they are made, porcelain or composite veneers, in the following link you can see our prices for you to perform these procedures in Medellin – Colombia, saving up to 70% of the value you would pay in the United States.
No, it is not a procedure that can be classified as painful, but it is likely that you will feel some discomfort, it may be several hours working with your mouth open, but in general terms it is nothing you should worry about.
In some cases and for purely cosmetic reasons, patients with short teeth are candidates for gum trimming prior to veneer treatment. It is made to give a better appearance to the smile.
You should avoid unnecessarily straining your teeth, biting your nails, uncovering things with your teeth, chewing on a pen, etc … these kinds of habits are not good for veneers, neither are they good for your natural teeth.
