What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-coloured shells that are attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They are often made from porcelain or resin-composite materials and are permanently bonded to your teeth.

The biggest benefit to veneers is improving the appearance of your teeth, giving you a brighter and more even smile. Dental veneers are often used to treat the following cosmetic occurrences:
• Broken or chipped teeth
• Severe discoloration or uneven colouring that cannot be fixed with whitening
• Gaps in the teeth
• Smaller-than-average teeth
• Pointed or unusually shaped teeth

Some people may only get one veneer in the case of a broken or chipped tooth, but many get between six to eight veneers to create an even, symmetrical smile. The top front eight teeth are the most applied veneers.

What are the Different Types of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are mostly made from porcelain. Applying traditional dental veneers requires more intensive prep work compared to alternatives that are sometimes called “no-prep veneers.” These no-prep veneers — which include options like Lumineers and Vivaneeres — take less time and are less invasive to apply.

Applying traditional dental veneers typically involves grinding down the tooth structure, sometimes removing some of the tooth even past the enamel. This allows for proper placement, but it is also an irreversible procedure that can be painful to go through and often requires a local anaesthetic.

No-prep veneers, on the other hand, may require some tooth preparation or alteration, but these alterations are minimal. Instead of removing layers of tooth under the enamel, no-prep veneers only affect the enamel. In many cases, no-prep veneers do not require local anaesthetics.

How Much do Dental Veneers cost in Panama?

Veneers are not often covered by insurance, as they are considered a cosmetic procedure.
In our clinic, traditional veneers can cost an average of 650 and 700 dollars each and the duration depends on the care that the patient has, hygiene, habits and regular cleanings of each patient.

Preliminary Dental Veneer Appointment
At your preliminary appointment at Clínica Dental Champsaur we will discuss which options are right for you and how many veneers you want to have placed. In some cases, if teeth are crooked or uneven, you may need to have braces before your dentist can place the veneers.

Champsaur Dental Clinic often takes X-rays at this stage to assess the health of your teeth and we will also make a mock up to simulate how the results can be, prior to starting treatment.

To get accurate sizing for your veneers, at the next appointment, we will trim down about a half a millimetre of your tooth before they take an impression of your teeth. This mould is then sent off to the laboratory for the creation of your veneers.

How Are Veneers Attached on to your Teeth?

It usually takes between one and two weeks after your dentist creates your mold to get your veneers back from the lab…. In our clinic they can be done in less time if it is planned even in 2 or 3 days, it depends on the case. Thanks to the use of digital technology that streamlines the entire laboratory setup and makes it more predictable and accurate. The dentists at Clínica Dental Champsaur will then evaluate the fit, shape and color of the veneers to make sure they are perfect for you. Your dentist will then clean your teeth thoroughly to prevent bacteria from getting trapped under the veneer and causing cavities. After we do this, we will use a grinding tool to create a rougher texture on each tooth where a veneer will be applied. This makes it easier for the veneer to adhere to the tooth.

We then use a dental cement to bind the veneer to the tooth. We use ultraviolet light to harden this cement quickly, and once you leave our clinic your smile will look much better.

This appointment typically does not last longer than two hours, though it might be an extra thirty minutes if a local anaesthetic is used.
