Dental veneers in Barcelona: get a smile makeover at Turó Park Clinics!

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment. In other words, they can improve the appearance of your teeth but don’t have any effect on your dental health. People generally get veneers because they are not satisfied with the color, shape or alignment of their teeth.

Veneers are strong and long-lasting and provide a very natural finish. They offer a good alternative to time-consuming orthodontic treatment with braces.

Dental veneers are usually used on front teeth (incisors or canines) for better cosmetic results. Your dentist may recommend using dental crowns for your teeth at the back of your mouth.

What is a dental veneer?

Veneers are thin coverings designed and customized for each patient, that adhere directly to the front of the tooth to improve its appearance.

Dental veneers can be used to treat a number of different cosmetic concerns, including chipped, broken, discolored, or smaller-than-average teeth.

Why choose dental veneers?

Dental veneers are a great way to enhance the look of several teeth at once.

The main benefits of dental veneers are:

  • They are affordable
  • They do not require invasive or long dental procedures.
  • They preserve the tooth enamel (the protective, hard outer surface of your teeth) better than composites or crowns.
  • They are comfortable because they are custom made to fit over your teeth
  • They are long-lasting over time
  • They can be incorporated into fixed dentures

The main advantage of veneers are that they require the removal of very little (if any) tooth enamel, something that can put you at risk for periodontal disease later on.

Types of veneers

There are different types of veneer available.

Indications and contraindications of veneers

Indications of dental veneers

Dental veneers are one of the most popular and effective treatments in cosmetic dentistry. They can be used for functional and cosmetic correction of the following conditions:

  • Stained or darkened teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Uneven spaces or a large gap between the upper front teeth
  • Malposed teeth (not requiring orthodontics)

Contraindications of veneers

Long-term teeth-grinding (bruxism) can wear down and shorten the incisor teeth at the front of your mouth. Veneer application may be a more complicated procedure if you grind your teeth.

Applying veneers to the incisors can lengthen them, but there is a risk of weakening the veneer attachment if your dentist does not build up the height of your teeth in the back of your mouth at the same time.

Some diseases and diets with large amounts of acidic foods and drinks can decrease the thickenss of your outer tooth enamel or dentin.  The adhesive used to hold the veneers is not as strong, the thinner your dentin.

Your Turó Park Clinics dentist will talk more with you about whether or not you are a good candidate for dental veneers.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about dental veneers

Will I need to have my veneers replaced?

Highly-skilled dentists, like those at Turó Park Clinics have a longer success rate with dental veneers’ lifespan. Ideally, dental veneers should last at least 12 years. You may need to have your veneers replace if there are cracks or fractures in the ceramic film. These cracks can allow staining through liquids soaking into the cracks. They also increase the risk of cavities. Veneers rarely fall off.

How long after veneers can I eat?

The veneers will be cemented with a much stronger and permanent adhesive, but should not be chewed on for 24 hours so it can set properly. You may eat 1-1.5 hours after your appointment; this is just the crucial initial time that the veneers should be allowed to set without any eating whatsoever.

How do I care for my veneers?

Good oral hygiene is the most important factor in determining the health of your teeth and how long your veneers will last. One of the benefits of dental veneers is that they require the same care as your other teeth: Brushing with a fluoride-containing toothpast a minimum of two times a day, preferably with an electric toothbrush, flossing daily, and visiting the dentist every 6 months- to one year for a dental hygiene appointment. If you grind your teeth, your Turo Park dentist will advise you to wear a night protection guard for your teeth
