Dental Veneers, a solution without surgery

What are Dental Veneers?

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), dental Veneers are a “thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.”; They are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth’s original enamel during a series of in-office procedures.


Veneers are the fastest and easyiest way to a perfect smile; the best part about it, is that is completely secure and don´t need surgery;  it´s perfect for people with teeth that are stained, chipped or have gaps. On the other hand, veneers, are an irreversible treatment; so you better think twice before you and your dentist take any decision about this procedure; with the correct information, you´ll know if it´s the best choice for your teeths.

Dentists use veneers to close gaps, correct small misalignments; or as a cosmetic solution to enhance the brightness of their teeth and to straighten their smile, correcting discoloration, fractures, or chips issues. Porcelain veneers, Lumineers and composite resin veneers are the most commonly used material in dentistry; porcelain veeners corrects issuies of shape and color and can last from 10 to 20 years.

Placing Veneers

The laboratory can fabricate the veener; the procedure on highlighting placement of the porcelain veener created by the laboratory is the following:

  1. Local anesthetia isn´t required when placing veneers. However,  it can be used depending on the patient’s sensitivity. The dentist will clean the tooth and determine the correct shade for the veneer;  removes a small amount of the enamel of the tooth to provide room to place the veneer on the tooth.
  2. An impression of the tooth is made for the laboratory ; a temporary veneer will be placed on the tooth with spot etching in the center of the tooth away from the margins.
  3. The laboratory delivers the porcelain veneer to your dentist and he is going to remove your temporary veneer; then the dentist clean your tooth with pumice and water. The veneer is then etched, rinsed throughly with water and air dried. The adhesive is placed on the preparation; the cement and the veneer is placed for exact fit and contour.
  4. The veneer is then light cured for 60 seconds on all surfaces of it to attach it to the tooth structure.
  5. Your dentist removes the excess material and polish the margins of the veneer.

Many dentists will schedule a follow-up visit to check for comfort; a comfortable veneer will be a long-lasting veneer.

Take care of your Veneers


It´s important to brushing and flossing as you would your regular teeth. Do a proper daily brushing, 3 times per day. Use an non-abrasive flouride toothpaste. Avoid coffee and stain-inducing foods.

A proper hygiene help your veneers to last longer; remember,  and no matter how well you take care of them, it will need replacement at some point.

Implant Restored | Keith Testimonial

Implant restoration is a complet process that our Ocean Dental Cancun specialists can perform for you.

Learn more about dental implants here and listen to the testimony of our patient Keith who was satisfied with his treatment, his implants restored.

Implant Restored | Keith Testimonial

Dental implants are a substitute for tooth bone. These implants are placed by performing surgery on the jaw below the gingiva, where the dentist embeds the replacement tooth. Once the implants are placed, they can not be removed as is normally done with natural teeth. Once placed the dental implant begins to adapt with the gingiva, which is not necessary to hold the implant with the help of another tooth.

When implants are placed, the dentist may place crowns or veneers on them to replace lost parts without any problem.

For implant restored the bone is placed in the jaw providing a secure and stable support to place the artificial teeth. This adaptation helps prostheses and bridges (as well as individual crowns placed on implants) feel more natural than conventional ones.

Implant Restored

For a Front Tooth Implant Which is Best? Screw Retained or Cement Retained?

For a Front Tooth Implant Which is Best? Screw Retained or Cement Retained?

Cement-retained restorations offer a couple advantages including the elimination of un-esthetic screw access holes and greater resistance to porcelain fracture. The main advantage for screw retained is retrievablility.

In my practice for the usual when the abutment is at least 5mm and/or of proper retention I usually place cement retained restorations

Is it possible if I can I have bone graft and teeth implants at the same time?

Is it possible if I can I have bone graft and teeth implants at the same time?

Not only is it possible (with a few exceptions), but also recommended. As we like to practice a more conventional approach to implant placement, and reduce the amount of surgeries. If we are able to place the bone graft and implants this reduces Osseo integration periods, and helps give better initial stability to the implant itself.
If extractions are needed, if you have severe bone loss, or if you have infection in this area then the possibility of placing the implants along with bone grafting may be questionable and a full x-ray and physical evaluation will be needed.
