What Are Veneers and Why Get Them?

Dental Veneers are a relatively simple and effective way of performing a smile makeover and have you smiling with confidence once more.

Veneers are commonly used for those with heavily stained teeth, chipped teeth or to fix gaps in an individual’s smile.  However, having veneers fitted is a big decision, as the process will, in most cases, involve the irreversible shaping and contouring of the original tooth to allow the veneer to be fitted, so it’s essential you have the best information available to you when making such a decision.

So, in the rest of this guide, our Marbella dental experts will help you take a deeper look into what veneers are, and why you might get them.

What are Veneers?

A veneer in its official dentistry definition is a “thin piece of porcelain, that is used to re-create the natural look of teeth while ensuring strength and resilience is provided of equal measure to natural tooth enamel.” Here at Oasis Dental Marbella, we specialise in the detailed bespoke custom making and fitting of porcelain veneers, matching them to the rest of your teeth’s colouring and fitting them with exquisite precision, to the front surface of your teeth, improving the appearance of your smile with a solution to meet your expectations.


Why do we as dentists use veneers? 

As dental experts, we pride ourselves in offering our patients the most suitable solution to their dental needs, and veneers are often able to correct multiple problems at the same time, including discolouration or to cover chipped and fractured teeth. Results can also be provided faster than other forms of treatment such as braces. With careful planning, we also have great predictability in the final result allowing you to pre-approve the end result.


Why should you get veneers?

As we mentioned above veneers provide a relatively simple, quick and effective solution for a range of general and cosmetic dentistry requirements, and the ability to custom make your veneers so as to match the colour and shape of your other teeth, it means you get the exact look you want.

The shade of some patients´ teeth can be naturally dark throughout their life and veneers can be used to hide this discolouration of our teeth. Due to the porcelain glaze, it is unlikely that drinking and eating some of your favourite snacks will stain your veneers, however, if you damage the surface of the porcelain you can leave the veneers susceptible to potential staining.


How are veneers fitted?

Here at Oasis Dental our veneer treatment process will require a minimum of two appointments.

After planning appointments to determine exactly what you are looking for, the first treatment visit involves contouring the teeth slightly if required by removing a very small amount of your tooth enamel.

From here we shall make an impression of your teeth which we will use to custom craft your veneer. To protect your tooth during the time between your first and second visit, we’ll fit temporary veneers. This gives you an opportunity to preview the final result.

Once we’ve created your laboratory-made custom veneers, at the second appointment the temporary veneer is removed, the tooth cleaned, and the area is prepared before the veneers are tried in to make sure you are completely happy with the result.

We will then use the adhesive bonding to ensure the veneers are fitted precisely and polished, to give your smile that beautiful gleam you were looking for.

The Smile Makeover and What It Can Do For You

One of the most upsetting body hang-ups that many of us suffer from is self-consciousness surrounding our teeth. Problem areas on the body can be covered with clothing and temporarily forgotten, but dissatisfied feelings about our smiles affect us during the happiest of occasions, leaving us looking glum or awkward in photos or suffering from paranoia during our laughter-filled interactions with loved ones. However, even the toughest tooth-related issues can be solved. A Smile Makeover, like the one offered by Oasis Dental, is a life changing investment for those who just want to let their smiles shine. Here, in a few steps, are the many ways that the Smile Makeover can help you achieve that goal.


  1. Understand your requirements

It’s your perfect look, so it’s all down to you. When you first express a wish to change your teeth, an appointment for a comprehensive smile assessment will be arranged, where expert cosmetic dentists will discuss your requirements with you. The approach they will take – which will involve a combination of your preferences and their expertise – will be agreed upon, and you’ll come to realise that the perfect smile isn’t so far out of reach after all.


  1. Visualise your new look

Diagnostic models of your teeth will be adapted to allow you a preview of what your smile will look like after the makeover, allowing you and your dentist in Marbella to discuss the process with visual aids. Approaches can include the use of a state of the art whitening process along with diamond-edge contouring of the teeth and gums to give an even, symmetrical look that is both healthy and natural.


  1. Take it for a spin

It’s your investment, so you ought to get the final say. A “trial smile” period is often arranged, where you have the opportunity to come back and request changes to your look before the process is officially completed. This allows you to truly own your look and remain in charge throughout the treatment.


  1. Debut the new you

Once your procedure is complete, you can really grab life with both hands and start to feel the full effect of your glorious new smile – on both you and everyone around you. The best thing that the Smile Makeover can offer you is a fabulous end result that will boost your self-confidence to a place you never imagined.

It really doesn’t take much to get the ball rolling and start the short and simple journey to a brand-new look. Oasis Dental is open from 10 in the morning until 6 in the evening Monday to Friday, with an earlier finish of 3pm on the Thursday. Don’t hesitate to discuss any and all concerns with the team; We are there to give you the best possible experience and put you at your ease.
