Porcelain Veneers: Radiant and Natural Smiles at CosDent Clinic
Porcelain veneers are an aesthetic and durable solution to enhance the appearance of teeth. At CosDent Clinic, we take pride in offering this cutting-edge procedure to help you achieve a radiant and natural smile.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are placed over the teeth to correct their shape, size, color, and texture. These veneers provide a natural appearance and strength comparable to dental enamel. They are ideal for those who desire subtle changes in tooth position or a complete smile transformation.
At CosDent Clinic, we are leaders in cosmetic dentistry, and porcelain veneers are our standard of excellence. Thanks to our state-of-the-art dental laboratory on-site, we can complete the treatment in just two sessions, allowing us to maintain strict quality control and ensure the best results.
When are porcelain veneers used?
Porcelain veneers are an effective solution in various situations, such as discolored, fractured, uneven, decayed, or visibly flawed teeth. They are also an excellent option when superficial stains do not respond to dental whitening. At CosDent, we will help you identify the cosmetic improvements that can be achieved through veneers.
How is the procedure?
The process of placing porcelain veneers consists of approximately four appointments. We start with a comprehensive dental assessment, followed by a diagnostic trial called Mock Up, where you will see a preview of the final result. This will allow you to visualize the changes that will be made and ensure you are satisfied. Then, we will proceed with the preparation of the teeth and finally, place the veneers permanently.
What is the price of porcelain veneers?
The price of porcelain veneers varies depending on several factors, such as the number of teeth to be restored, the condition of the teeth, and any necessary prior work. To obtain an accurate quote, a personalized clinical evaluation is required.
At CosDent Clinic, we are committed to your satisfaction and to providing you with a beautiful and healthy smile. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and discover how porcelain veneers can dramatically transform your smile.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
The lifespan of porcelain veneers varies depending on different factors such as the placement technique used, the manufacturer, and the patient's commitment to following the dentist's instructions for proper maintenance. Although they may seem to last forever, it is essential to mention that approximately 95% of placed veneers still remain in place after 15 to 20 years. However, over time, their aesthetic quality may deteriorate, and it may be necessary to perform some restoration or even replace them with new ones.
Advantages of using dental veneers
Porcelain veneers offer a wide range of aesthetic and functional benefits. Here are some of the key advantages you can enjoy by choosing porcelain veneers at CosDent Clinic:
- Natural appearance: Porcelain veneers are custom-made for each patient, ensuring a natural and harmonious look. It is challenging to distinguish between teeth with veneers and natural teeth, providing an impeccable and realistic smile.
- Stain resistance: Unlike natural teeth, porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains caused by foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, and tobacco. Thanks to their polished and non-porous surface, veneers remain stain-free and maintain their brightness over time.
- Preservation of dental tissue: Porcelain veneers are a conservative alternative to dental crowns. Minimal dental wear is required to place veneers, preserving most of the natural dental tissue. This allows for the maintenance of dental health and structure while significantly enhancing the aesthetic appearance.
- Easy maintenance: Taking care of porcelain veneers is simple and similar to caring for natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing, along with periodic visits to the dentist, are all that's needed. The use of non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste will be recommended to maintain the brightness and durability of the veneers.
As for the indications of porcelain veneers, they are suitable for various dental issues, including:
- Fractured or chipped teeth.
- Stained or discolored teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Diastemas (spaces between teeth).
- Teeth worn down by erosion or abrasion.
- Teeth with visible or defective restorations.
- Teeth with gum recession.
At CosDent Clinic, our specialists will evaluate your specific case and provide a personalized recommendation on whether porcelain veneers are the best option for you and how they can help you achieve the smile you desire.
