What are Dental Veneers?
Costa Rica dental veneers are an excellent way to get that perfect smile that you have been missing. A dental veneer is actually a very thin layer of porcelain that is placed over the natural tooth in order to improve appearance or correct flaws that include gaps between the teeth or fractured teeth. In order to place the porcelain veneer on the tooth, a very thin layer of the tooth’s own enamel must be removed. A bonding agent is placed on the tooth and hardened with a light designed to cure the bonding agent.
Dr. Mario provides beautiful porcelain dental veneers right in his Costa Rica dental office. The procedure involves minimal removal of tooth enamel and is often almost painless.
The porcelain veneer works well for people who are unhappy with the shape of their natural teeth or who have had damage or discoloration to their teeth due to trauma or eating habits. Porcelain veneers look most like your own teeth and resist the staining that occurs when natural teeth are exposed to things like tea, smoke or coffee.
