Veneers in Cartagena de Indias

The Ultimate Guide to Veneers in Cartagena de Indias

Last fact-checked: 21 February 2020

Time to gain that smile you’ve always wanted (but never been able to afford) with dental veneers in Cartagena. A white, even smile with perfect rows of teeth can be achieved relatively simply with dental veneers—and you can even upgrade to zirconia veneers, one of the most natural-looking materials, for way less than prices you might pay at home.

Are Dental Veneers for Me?

We’re all aware of how important our smile is. If there is something about ours that we don’t like then subconsciously it will affect how we smile, as well as our self-esteem, which in turn affects how other people see us. Upping your smile-time can also help boost your confidence and mental health as well!

Dental veneers are an effective way of changing your smile. You may only have one tooth that you feel is spoiling yours; it may be damaged, discolored or just an odd shape. A dental veneer can fix this. Or, your smile might not be to your liking because your teeth are crooked.

At one time, the only fix for crooked teeth was time-consuming orthodontic work (braces), an involved and expensive procedure which many adults are self-conscious about. A row of crooked teeth can be easily transformed with a row of veneers.

What Exactly Are Veneers and How Do They Work?

The thing to remember about dental veneers is they are purely a cosmetic treatment and have no benefits to your dental health. Having good oral health before you start is essential: your teeth will need to be cavity-free and structurally sound. If you have crumbling teeth, the dental veneers won’t stay attached, so there’s no way you can skimp or cut corners on this aspect. Your dentist will be able to let you know if you are a suitable candidate, and you can do some research on dental veneers of your own.

The veneer is a thin sliver of material, like porcelain or zirconia, attached to the front of the tooth, essentially disguising what’s sat behind it. It is an increasingly common treatment, especially since there are plenty of celebrities who have had dental veneers fitted. It’s worth taking a look online to see what a difference they have made.

Perhaps the biggest drawback of dental veneers for us non-celebrities is the cost. They are terrifically expensive—even just for one. For a row of six or eight, you could potentially be looking at five figures (in the US), making veneers out of reach for most.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Veneers?

The dental veneers procedure typically takes two visits to the dentist to complete:

  1. Assessment, Treatment Planning and Teeth Preparation: The dentist will first do a thorough examination and assess your teeth and mouth. Diagnostic tests, such as x-rays, will also be taken and the dentist will discuss what your expectations are. If deemed suitable, your dentist will talk you through the various materials that can be used for your veneers, for example, zirconia, porcelain or composite and their pros and cons, as well as their prices. If you go ahead with the procedure, your teeth will be prepared to receive the veneers. A thin sliver of enamel is removed from the front of the teeth receiving veneers so that when the veneer is placed it will be in line with your other teeth. Impressions will then need to be taken of your mouth, which are sent to the laboratory.
  1. Affixing Veneers: Once your dentist receives the veneers from the lab, you can return to have them permanently attached to your teeth. The process uses a special adhesive that bonds the veneers to the teeth using a light.

CAD/CAM

If your dental clinic offers CAD/CAM technology (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture), your veneers can be prepped and fitted in one day. CAD/CAM allows the dentist to use 3D scanning to make a mockup of your mouth on the computer, with the veneer designed on the screen right before your eyes. Once you are both happy with how it looks, the files are sent to a milling machine in the onsite laboratory which creates the veneer while you wait. Your dentist can then fit it there and then.

Is Cartagena a Good Place to get Veneers as a Dental Tourist?

Cartagena is an excellent destination for your dental veneers; its best clinics have modern instrumentation and certified, English-speaking dentists.

However, you should always do your own research and choose a dentist with whom you feel comfortable. Not sure where to start? Then allow Dental Departures to step in. We have already done the hard work: all the verified clinics listed on our website have been background checked. We do onsite visits, verify dentist qualifications, confirm professional memberships, publish patient reviews, clinic photos, location maps and prices. This gives you all the information you need to be able to make your own informed choice on where to go for treatment.

Two popular clinics for dental veneers in Cartagena include:

Sonrisa Perfecta Dental

Cartagena is really the jewel in Colombia’s tourism crown. The Old Town’s maze of cobbled streets and colonial buildings is contained within city walls. You can climb up and have a drink at a bar on the top as the sun sets over the Caribbean.

Tree-lined squares, dungeons transformed into souvenir shops and the colorful bougainvillea draped over buildings makes this one of the prettiest cities for leisurely strolls. If you want a tropical, palm-lined Caribbean beach with turquoise waters then (instead of Cartagena’s modest offering of city beaches), a 45-minute speedboat ride is all it takes to get there.

It’s a great place for a vacation, and one to put on your shortlist for affordable, good-quality dental veneers.
