Within dental consultations there is a high demand for dental aesthetics .

The main causes of consultation are due to a bad placement of these teeth or a yellowish or grayish color of them.

In the first of the situations the solution goes through an orthodontic treatment and can use, according to indications, any of the current techniques such as: invisible orthodontics, lingual orthodontics or traditional orthodontics .

In the second case, that is, color, we are usually asked about bleaching treatments. These treatments have their advantages, such as simplicity of use. But they present some drawbacks, such as, for example, hypersensitivity. This drawback is easily reversible and therefore does not usually give any problems.

However, the biggest drawback is the lack of predictability of the results, combined with the patient's expectations, since often the expected result can not be achieved. Consequently, an unwanted color which we want to change significantly and with a permanent duration, requires other treatments. For these cases the veneers are the most durable treatment.

There are different types of veneers. The most common are composite veneers and ceramic veneers .

The composite ones have as advantages that they are prepared in clinic at the same time of the visit, easily repairable and do not require dental reduction. As disadvantages are less polished, they get dirty and fracture more easily.

The ceramic ones have the aesthetic advantage mainly but they require a reduction of the tooth, in some cases, excessive and traumatic. So many patients throw it away.

Currently gathering the main advantages of composite veneers and ceramics there are lumineer ceramic veneers .

These due to their extreme thinness makes the tooth not need to be treated and consequently be less aggressive while maintaining the hardness of a ceramic veneer. And obtaining amazing aesthetic results .
