Frequently Asked Questions from Patients in Dentistry
We suggest that you constantly seek harmony and symmetry in your grin. The ideal is to place 20 veneers (10 on the top and 10 on the bottom), but you can also place as many veneers as you have visible teeth when you smile.
If you have less than 20 teeth, you should choose a tint that blends in with the rest of your teeth.
Furthermore, if you have natural teeth and one or more porcelain crowns, combining the materials with resin veneers is not recommended unless the crown is not visible when you smile. Remember that different materials might change color or age differently over time, resulting in varying tones in the same arch and, as a result, an artificial smile.
In general, it takes one appointment if done with resin or composite, two appointments if done with porcelain or ceramic veneers or veneers, and numerous visits if done with oral rehabilitation.
When we do dental implants and build a smile with dental crowns on teeth and implants, or when we do plastic surgery on the gums (Gingivoplasty) and certain porcelain veneers (veneers) are also implanted, the treatment may take a few months longer. This may necessitate two or more visits while the tissues repair.

- It is a treatment that can be reversed.
- They require annual maintenance and shine, and they are more quickly pigmented (with tobacco, dark drinks, coffee, green tea, and so on); but, with correct maintenance, they restore their shine and color.
Porcelain Veneers (ceramic lenses) are applied in a minimum of two sessions scheduled 5 business days apart.
Contrary to popular belief, they can be found in a variety of more natural hues as well as Hollywood white. Its many opacities enable you to conceal dark hues or stains such as tetracycline, fluorosis, and hypocalcifications in white and dazzling teeth.
- They mix beauty with durability.
- They are quite thin.
- They have optical qualities that are remarkably comparable to genuine teeth.
- They require little upkeep (a professional dental cleaning is required once a year, much like natural teeth).
- They are not stained.
- They can endure up to 20 years if properly cared for.
Depending on the level of care: Resin or composite veneers (bonded veneers) have a lifespan of 6 to 8 years. Porcelain or ceramic veneers (veneers or lumineers) have a life span of 10 to 20 years.
We do not use dental wear to place porcelain veneers, but rather a micro-preparation with a microscope between the gum and the tooth to ensure proper adaptation of the veneer and avoid over-contouring.
With a smile design, you can eat and drink whatever you want; nevertheless, you must be cautious because veneers, like genuine teeth, can fracture. When eating really hard stuff, use cutlery if possible, and avoid tearing food or objects with the mouth.
Finally, regular dental check-ups are required, as is cleaning and maintaining your veneers to ensure the health and longevity of your natural smile design.
