Dental veneers are custom-designed shells of wafer-thin, tooth-colored ceramic material that bonds to the front surface of a patient’s teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers can cover worn tooth enamel, correct uneven tooth alignment or spacing, obscure chips or cracks, and change the teeth’s color, shape, size, or length.
There are different types of veneers used by dentists. Empress Veneers are modern micro polymerbonding materials that can comfortably, securely adhere porcelain veneers to a patient’s teeth for up to 30 years.
At Angeles Hospital Tijuana, we use the Empress Dental Veneers, which are made from porcelain ceramic and many dentist feels are the strongest on the market. Porcelain resists stains better and retains more of the light-reflective qualities of natural teeth than resin veneers do, while resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement.
Dental veneers create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. Even better, the translucent ceramic quality of Angeles Health’s veneers provides a more natural look than anything else available.

What to Expect from Dental Veneers at Angeles Hospital Tijuana?
Dental veneers were originally invented in the 1930s by a California dentist who created them for Hollywood actors to help change the look of their teeth for various roles. Held onto the teeth by denture adhesive, those early veneers fell off after short periods, which was not a problem at the time because they were designed to be merely temporary solutions to a short-term goal.
As technologies developed for bonding material to teeth and patients in the public began to seek aesthetic improvements to their smiles — without the time, expense and difficulty of invasive solutions such as implants — today’s porcelain veneers became the industry standard. Modern micro polymer bonding materials can comfortably, securely adhere porcelain veneers to a patient’s teeth for up to 30 years. Dental veneers are custom-made shells of wafer-thin, tooth-colored ceramic material that a bond to the front surface of a patient’s teeth to improve their smile. Veneers can cover worn down tooth enamel, straighten uneven tooth alignment or spacing, hide chips or cracks, and change the color, shape, size, or length of the patient’s teeth.
Today veneers are generally made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers are better at resisting stains retain more of the light-reflective qualities of natural teeth than resin veneers do, while resin veneers are thinner and need removal of less of the tooth surface before they are placed. Dental veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. Even better, the translucent ceramic quality of today’s veneers provides a more natural look than anything available in the past.
Are you an ideal candidate for Dental Veneers at Angeles Hospital Tijuana?
Anyone who is embarrassed by the appearance of their teeth, who often tries to hide their teeth or hesitates to smile may find dental veneers can solve their problems. Dental veneers can correct moderate and even severe cosmetic tooth problems, well beyond simple discoloration.
Ideal candidates for dental veneers at our dental clinic, have serious problems with their teeth including severe discoloration or staining, crooked, misaligned and uneven teeth, cracks, chips, or gaps. Problems that cannot be easily fixed with teeth whitening treatments and fillings can be addressed with veneers. Additionally, dental veneers are a good choice for anyone wanting straighter teeth without the hassle and discomfort of braces.
Other problems that can be addressed with dental veneers include small teeth that can be enlarged to enhance their appearance, teeth with small holes in them, gaps between teeth, and overcrowded teeth.
Dental veneer candidates at Angeles Hospital Tijuana must have generally good oral health and use proper dental care. Patients must also have enough natural tooth enamel to provide a bonding surface for the veneer. Porcelain veneers are a permanent solution to dental problems and require that the natural tooth underneath be shaved or altered to properly fit the veneer.
In addition to improving the cosmetic appearance of a patient’s teeth, dental veneers can improve other issues that may be caused by tooth problems. People with chipped, cracked, or uneven teeth may suffer from tooth or jaw pain and tooth problems can negatively impact their social life and self-confidence. Veneers can stop tooth and jaw pain, make it easier for people to chew and speak, and improve a person’s self-confidence and sense of well-being.
Benefits and Risks of Dental Veneers
Veneers offer many cosmetic and structural benefits. They provide a more natural tooth appearance than other cosmetic dental solutions, such as dentures or crowns. Gum tissue tolerates porcelain well, making the benefits of natural and healthy-looking teeth almost immediate. Because porcelain is stain resistant, veneers ensure bright-looking teeth for years to come after they are applied. The color of a porcelain veneer can also be selected to make dark teeth appear whiter. Veneers offer a conservative
approach to changing a tooth’s –or many teeth’s– color and shape because they generally don’t require the extensive shaping and dental work prior to the procedure that crowns do, and yet offer a stronger, more aesthetic alternative.
Veneers are permanent; the process is not reversible. They are more costly than composite resin bonding. They are usually not repairable should they chip or crack. Because enamel has been removed, teeth may become more sensitive to hot and cold foods and beverages.
Though not likely, veneers can dislodge and fall off. To minimize the chance of this occurring, nail biting is discouraged; as is chewing on pencils, ice, or other hard objects; or otherwise putting pressure on teeth.
