Porcelain Veneers

What are Dental Veneers?


Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.


In Torrevieja, we offer all kind of dental veneers. They can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.


What do Porcelain Veneers cost?


Porcelain Veneers cost from 360 € per tooth. What you have to understand is that all porcelain veneers last a long time and are very strong. The cost of porcelain veneers vary based on only one thing. “How natural will I look?”. If you want a fake looking smile then the porcelain veneers are cheaper. If you want an amazing natural looking smile then they get a bit more dearer.


How many teeth should I do?


Generally most of the time you should do the number of teeth you show when you smile. This can range form 6 to 10 teeth. However in certain instances just doing 1 to 4 teeth can also make a huge difference.


Will my teeth look natural or fake?


That depends on what you are actually looking for. Porcelain veneers are a result of artistic capabilities of a technician.

Therefore if you want really natural looking porcelain veneers then you need to see a dentist who has high levels of experience such as the team at Lucrecia Botella.


How long will porcelain veneers last?


In Lucrecia Botella, we offer them from seven to twenty years. While the veneer itself is inert and non-living, the tooth or teeth to which they are attached and the surrounding gum tissues are living and may change. For example, gum line shrinkage may expose or reveal root surfaces. If a veneer comes off it can generally be re-bonded. If it chips it can sometimes be re-bonded or otherwise replaced.
