Getting Porcelain Veneers Done in Colombia
Porcelain veneers are done in 2-5 business days, depending on quantity.
Work is done in 2-3 sessions, each lasting 1-2 hours.
During the first appointment, you and the dentist will discuss your desired shape, size, spacing, and shade of veneers.
Based on this feedback, the dentist shaves 0.3mm of your tooth enamel to prepare for the temporary veneers. These are made with a lighter, more flexible, but less durable material.
When you and the dentist are both happy with the temporaries, an impression will be made which will be used by the lab to custom create your permanent porcelain veneers.
Once they’re ready, you will return for a second appointment where the dentist will remove your temporaries and place the permanents.
The veneer is attached to the tooth with a special cement, then an ultraviolet light is used to harden it quickly.
You will experience a little sensitivity during these few days.
Take care of your veneers are you would your regular teeth. Brush and floss thoroughly and regularly.
Getting Composite Veneers Done in Colombia
Composite veneers are done in 2 business days.
Work is done in 2 sessions, each lasting 1-2 hours.
During the first appointment, you and the dentist will discuss your desired shape, size, shade of veneers.
Based on your feedback, the dentist will create and apply your composite veneers.
Composite veneers are made with a “high end, semi porous dental putty” that goes directly over the teeth in the desired shape.
An ultraviolet light is used to harden the veneer quickly to your natural teeth.
You will return the following day for a second appointment to ensure things fit as they should.
The Best Dentists in Colombia
One team serving Colombia’s major cities
So happy I went to Colombia to get porcelain veneers!
"The service was beyond my expectations. Travel from the USA to Cartagena, Colombia was simple. Dr. Julio Oliver’s office arranged my pickup from the airport and then got me to my hotel and then his dental office. The recommended accommodations were reasonably priced, very nice, and in walking distance to the office. I felt safe and secure the entire time I was there. I’m in love with my brand new smile and this beautiful city. I definitely recommend Dental Tourism Colombia!"
