Eliminate the space between your teeth without orthodontics: Dental veneers

by Wildsmile

Dental veneers are a type of aesthetic treatment that considerably improves the appearance of our smile, being one of the best options for all those people who suffer small defects in their teeth, such as tooth spaces, discolouration, poor formation, fissures or worn teeth. Within the speciality of Aesthetic Dentistry, dental veneers are one of the most requested procedures to improve the appearance of our teeth in a fast, effective and minimally invasive way.


What are dental veneers?

They are thin, custom-made porcelain or composite covers that encase the front of your teeth, giving them a natural and aesthetic appearance. Dental veneers are usually between 0.3 and 1 millimetre thick, this will depend on your teeth and the problems that these have, your dentist will recommend the option that best suits your needs.


Dental Veneers Materials

Today there are two types of materials used to make dental veneers on the market, each with its own pros and cons. Porcelain veneers are the most recommended because of their durability and resistance, having a life time of 15 to 20 years, resulting in the most expensive. Composite or resin veneers have a lower durability and resistance, since the material with which they are made tends to be fragile, having a life time of 5 to 10 years.


When is the use of dental veneers recommended?

This type of aesthetic treatment is recommended in cases such as:


  • - A gap between teeth
  • - Stained teeth
  • - Misaligned teeth
  • - Misshaped teeth
  • - Chipped teeth
  • - Worn teeth


Dental veneers are an excellent option for people who want to maintain a beautiful and long-lasting smile, since it is very difficult for their colour to change due to the consumption of substances that would pigment or stain our natural teeth. It is very important to highlight that dental veneers are a merely aesthetic solution and not a functional one, since it is a treatment that serves to cover and hide defects in our teeth, thus the patient does not need to undergo treatments that require more time. Remember to visit your dentist so that he can assess you and determine the best option for you.
