Dental veneers and why the movie stars choose them
These surface blades that are placed on the tooth surface achieve a perfect result instantaneously
Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or composite, a synthetic paste very similar to the tooth tissue, adhering to its surface and restoring the visible part of the smile.
They are a good and immediate solution to aesthetic problems such as teeth not as white or as aligned as you would like. This method has become popular thanks to its recurring use among the Hollywood stars, getting through it spectacular smiles. Víctor Cubillo, medical director at Artedental, says that this treatment “does not pose any kind of damage to the original tooth”, on which the sheets are adhered.
The choice between porcelain and composite, and of course, the number of veneers to be adhered, will vary the final price. Composite veneers are more economical and practically do not require carving of the tooth. On the other hand, porcelain veneers, despite having a higher price, are also more resistant, and can hold between 20 and 25 years in good condition and achieve optimum results, since they are manufactured by hand and tailored in a laboratory. In this case, it will be necessary to crimp the tooth slightly before the placement of the sheets.
The problems that can be corrected through these “stickers in the teeth” are quite diverse and sometimes they can be solved with this same method: from correcting the size and shape of the teeth, whitening the smile permanently, hiding the blemishes or divide between the teeth and cover the teeth aged or in poor condition. The adhesion of the sheets is made by the use of a special resin and very resistant, being a painless treatment and, in normal conditions, will be fixed in the same consultation.
Smile is a fundamental part of our identity, being one of the most colourful elements that is offered to others. That is why our self esteem depends to a large extent on feeling comfortable. The dental veneers can be an immediate solution to the discomfort of a smile with which we are not completely at ease to have a star-like star on the big screen. George Clooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Penélope Cruz are some of the celebrities who have opted for this treatment, getting some perfect smiles.
It is important that, in the case of considering them, ask for both opinion and treatment from a serious and ex-perienced dental centre since this treatment has been perfected very recently and it is now when it begins to become popular. “We should point out that the veneers are an aesthetic method and not a solution to more complex oral-dental problems,” insisted the medical director of Arte-dental.
