How much do porcelain veneers cost? in Panama?

Porcelain crowns

A porcelain dental crown consists of a fixed prosthesis, which is permanently adapted over the damaged natural teeth through a process called cementation. With this technique, in addition to strengthening the affected teeth, you can improve the alignment of the mouth and recover your facial appearance.

Porcelain crowns (outer part) are made by taking impressions of your teeth. Likewise, the cap that allows adhesion to the tooth is manufactured in this material, being adjusted to fit the affected parts.

How much does it cost?

The cost of this treatment is personalized and is given according to the amount and difficulty of the treatments to be performed. For example, it is necessary to make a preparation of the tooth, and although in most cases it is minimal, in other occasions, the tooth is very damaged and needs a more complex treatment.

In the same way, other factors such as the quality of the material, the location of the tooth, and damage to surrounding teeth can increase the cost of the procedure.


Porcelain procedures have gained great prestige in recent years. This is due to the fact that these treatments are accessible to people, where, in addition to improving the quality of life, confidence and self-esteem are restored.

Porcelain fixed bridge

artificial teeth

It is a technique based on the fixation of a prosthesis supported on the patient’s healthy teeth. In most cases, these fixed partial dentures (as they are usually called by professionals) replace missing teeth adjacent to healthy teeth. Along with crowns, this procedure is the most commonly used for people with dental problems.

Types of bridges

In addition to filling in the gaps in your teeth, dental bridges improve the appearance of your face and smile. In this way, people like you can regain their self-esteem and confidence, something essential in a society that links dental absences with a low socio-cultural level.

The type of porcelain fixed bridge you should use is specified according to the characteristics of your dental problem, among the most common are:

Benefits of fixed partial dentures

In addition to improving your appearance, a bridge helps prevent sagging of the soft tissues around the mouth. In this way, you will be able to improve your eating and chewing ability, especially if you have several missing teeth. Similarly, fixed bridges correct speech problems associated with missing teeth.

An additional benefit of implant-supported dentures is that they help reduce jawbone loss by simulating the roots of the original teeth.

As you may have noticed, the ideal solution depends on the type of dental problem that is affecting you. Because of this, the best option is to visit a specialized clinic, where you can get advice on the procedure you need.

Although porcelain crowns and fixed bridges are very strong, they need to be replaced over time, so you will need to consult with specialists. They will decide if the prosthesis needs to be replaced or simply repaired.
