What are Porcelain Veneers?

Would you like to wear a stunning smile? We want to tell you about a treatment we are using, which modifies and designs the appearance of teeth in record time: porcelain veneers.

These are ceramic or porcelain veneers that are bonded to the tooth to restore its appearance, without altering the tissue or wearing it down.

Its origin goes back to the movies in the 1930s, when dentist Dr. Charles Pincus developed veneers to give actors a better look on screen.

However, it was not until 1980 that the technique as we know it today was created.

Frequently Asked Questions

When opting for dental veneers to beautify your smile, there are probably some questions you may want to clarify before scheduling the start of your treatment.

Porcelain veneers can modify the color, size and texture of teeth very easily; but this does not imply that there are no disadvantages related to their application (although this risk is quite low).

Some of the limitations that occur with porcelain veneers are:

  • They cannot be repaired. If any part is damaged, it must be replaced with a new one.
  • Its application may cause gingival irritation.
  • The previous contouring of the tooth to place the veneers produces a controlled wear in the dental enamel that weakens the tooth.
  • They can cause temporary dental hypersensitivity, which does not occur in all cases. However, among those that do occur, temperature changes caused by food and beverages are accentuated.
  • They peel off more easily than other types of veneers.
  • They often suffer from chipping at the edges.
  • They are contraindicated in patients with bruxism.

Additionally, the costs of this type of veneers are higher than those of other materials, which, although they do not represent a risk, they do have an impact on the patient's economy.

It is sometimes difficult to estimate how long a veneer can last after it has been placed in the patient's mouth.

In fact, one of the main reasons has to do with conditions that vary from patient to patient. Lack of proper hygiene and bad habits can cause parts to break or wear out more easily.

However, beyond individual care, the type of material from which the parts are made also plays a role.

In particular, composite veneers are more economical, but their life span is shorter (between 5 and 8 years). After this, it is time to restore, polish and even replace them.

On the other hand, porcelain veneers can last more than 15 years, hence their high cost.

Currently there are Lumineers veneers, which, according to studies, last for about 30 years, as long as they are maintained with proper care.

This treatment is not recommended for teeth with severe fractures, as these require the application of other techniques to help restore the tooth and prevent the problem from progressing.

Similarly, the use of dental veneers is not recommended when the enamel of our teeth does not have enough dentin, a condition that produces weakness in the dental piece.

Finally, if you still have any doubts regarding dental veneers; contact us through our established channels and we will gladly assist you with the advice you need.

We want you to have a fabulous smile and that is why our clinic offers various treatments that will help you look the way you want. We specialize in the placement of porcelain veneers, where you will have options to suit your condition (ultra-thin, zirconia and feldspathic).

The success of this treatment allows you to increase your self-esteem, maintain a glowing face, look great and smile all the time!
