What is the objective of the treatment with composite veneers?The objective of this treatment is to change the appearance of the smile to all those patients who for some reason are dissatisfied with the same. This treatment allows to change color, shape, position or size of teeth in a very fast way and only in one session.

Who is the ideal candidate to undergo treatment?Any person who is dissatisfied with his smile, who retains natural teeth because all the work is done over his own teeth and is between 16 and 18 years of age, when the teeth are fully erupted with a healthy and stable gum.

The veneers are the star treatment to get the best smile quickly 

What is the treatment with composite veneers?It consists of making small sheets on each of the teeth involved in the smile to get a new look, such as changing the proportion, size, shape and / or color of the teeth, to achieve a new and youthful appearance in this new smile.

What kind of anesthesia is used?Actually 99% of these treatments are performed without anesthesia because it is practically painless. You work on your own teeth without having previously cut, drilled or manipulated them. Only the enamel is polished a little superficially to achieve a good adhesion of the veneers to the tooth and therefore the treatment is painless. Anesthesia is not necessary.

In what cases is it indicated to use this technique?All those cases in which the patient really wants it and wants to avoid another type of longer treatment, as is the case of orthodontics. Basically it is indicated in those cases in which we want to make a change of color, shape, size and / or proportions of the teeth achieving optimal results in only one or two treatment sessions.

what results can be expected?Get a new smile and meet the expectations of the patient through a new color of the teeth, a new shape, a new position and thus get the patient to smile again without complexes and with total satisfaction.

When can I resume my normal activities?After one or two hours after leaving the consultation, the patient can live absolutely normal life, only being restricted during the first 24 hours to smoke and drink liquids that can stain, such as coffee, tea or coke between others. For the rest, the patient can eat and drink without any worry and make normal life from the moment the treatment ends.
