Porcelain Veneers are among the most popular and most effective achievements in the cosmetic dentistry. These veneers are normally thin and custom made so that they cover the entire front side of your teeth. Patients usually choose to veneers so that they can correct chipped teeth, uneven teeth, irregular spacing, worn enamel, and discoloration. These Veneers can last up to 20 years and longer, protecting your damaged teeth from any further damage.
What does the procedure involve?
If you choose to perform the procedure at Medical & Dental Care Tijuana, we will first perform a deep examination of your teeth. This examination will often include taking X-rays and impressions of your teeth. After that, we will need to remove a thin layer of enamel from the teeth. We will later create an impression which will be sent to our laboratory to create a veneer. While we make your permanent mold, we will provide you with temporary veneers. Before your permanent veneers are cemented to your teeth, they will be given one last adjustment.
Advantages of veneers:
Veneers can give your teeth with so much more beautiful appearance. Veneers made in our Tijuana dental office always look aesthetically satisfying and really natural. Our veneers are also very gentle to your gums, and resistant to stains. The reason that clients love our veneers so much is that they protect their teeth from further damage and their restorative quality.
Types of veneers used on our clinic are: E.max Porcelain, Empress Porcelain, Lumineers Porcelain
Lumineers have raised extremely popular because of the marketing campaign of the company. You need to know that they while being the most expensive, are not the very best quality of veneers. Even though many people think that these veneers don’t require teeth to be shaved, the truth is, all types of veneers require the surface to be prepared so that they can be sealed properly. Even though our Lumineer-placing is a lot cheaper in Tijuana, and we will place them on client’s demand, they will still cost $520 each. To be honest, a lot higher quality can be achieved with the custom-made veneers that we make out of E.max, and will be less expensive.
Empress veneers are strongly similar to Lumineers. They are as thin as Lumineers and have the same luminance. Our Empress veneers will cost you only $380 each.
The E.max brand are the best veneers we can offer. Additionally to being made of the hardest available material, and being the most resistant to damage, these veneers also have a great amount of luminance.
To install a complete custom-made set of veneers on our clinic, it will take 2-3 visits. Our veneers have proven they can last over 20 years.
Are there any risks?
A very rare risk is veneers chipping or cracking. In case that this happens, they will need to be replaced. Because the enamel is permanently removed during the procedure, some stronger sensitivity of your teeth to cold and hot food may occur. Because teeth grinding might damage veneers, you could also be advised to wear a mouthguard during your sleep.
How much do veneers cost?
Depending on the reputation of the dentist and the quality of used material, in the US, veneers can cost from $1,100 to $2,000 per tooth. The most expensive are usually porcelain veneers. To our patients at Medical & Dental Care Tijuana, we will charge only $380 per tooth.
