Who are veneers suitable for?
Dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues, including:
- Teeth that are discolored or stained
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped
- Teeth with gaps between them
- In some cases, veneers can even be a viable alternative to orthodontic treatment.
What are veneers?
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored ceramic or porcelain that bond directly to placed over the natural teeth to create a more unified and healthy appearance, usually between .3 and .5 millimeters thick and and are an easy way to address a variety of physical and aesthetic problems.
They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their durability and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. At Cancun Dental Design we practice veneers frequently, and design individually to match and enhance characteristics already present in each patient's teeth.
According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), this dental procedure ranks in the top three most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures in the United States.
How veneers are applied on teeth?
With our in-house dental lab we reduce the waiting time for your new veneers. On the first day we will take a mold of your teeth, once your veneers are done out ofit, you need to have them placed. At this second appointment, we evaluate the fit, shape, and coloration of the veneers to make sure they’re perfect for you.
Next, we will clean your teeth. This is important, as it keeps bacteria from being trapped under the veneer and causing decay. We carefully use the grinding tool to create a rougher texture on each tooth on which a veneer is to be applied. This makes it easier for the veneer to stick to the tooth.
Then we apply a dental cement to bind the veneer to the tooth and use ultraviolet light to harden this cement quickly, and once you leave Cancun Dental Design, your new smile is ready to go!
This second appointment (where veneers are placed) typically doesn’t last longer than 2 hours, though it might be an extra 30 minutes if a local anesthetic is used.

In-house dental lab- CAD/CAM technology and temporaries
Our in-house dental laboratories use CAD/CAM technology to fabricate veneers.
Temporary veneers provide a preview of the expected outcome, though it should be noted that temporaries may not always be placed. If your treatment can be done in a short time period we likely skip the temporary process.
However, after your teeth are shaped, they may be more sensitive to hot and cold due to the loss of enamel during tooth preparation. Increased sensitivity may also occur if you have temporaries placed and for a brief time following placement of the final veneers.
During the placement appointment, we might remove the temporaries and place your final veneers, after which we will evaluate and adjust them to ensure the optimal fit and color.
What veneers are the best?
Dental veneers are most commonly made out of porcelain. Applying traditional dental veneers requires more intensive preparation work compared to alternatives that are known as “no-prep veneers.” Which include options like Lumineers that take less time and are less invasive to apply.
Applying traditional dental veneers typically involves grinding down the tooth structure, sometimes removing some of the tooth even past the enamel. This allows for proper placement, but it’s also an irreversible procedure that can be painful and often requires a local anesthetic.
Ultra-thin laminates (Lumineers) on the other hand, may require some tooth preparation or alteration, but these alterations are minimal. Instead of removing layers of tooth under the enamel, no-prep veneers only affect the enamel. In many cases, no-prep veneers don’t require local anesthetics.
Veneers aren’t the same as tooth implants or crowns. Implants, on the other hand, replace the entire tooth. Crowns also encase the entire tooth, while veneers only cover the front surface of the tooth.
Wich is better veneers or Lumineers?
Composite veneers are typically about 0.5 millimeters thick vs Lumineers wich are typically 0.3 millimeters thick. Many patients and dentists prefer the Lumineers brand over traditional veneers because they're thinner and easier to place on the teeth.
However, because they are thinner than other veneers, it may be harder for Lumineers to mask discolored teeth. If your teeth are heavily stained, there may not be enough material to hide the stains, and traditional veneers may be a better option.
Because Lumineers cover the existing tooth surface, you'll notice that your tooth is thicker. You may find it more difficult to clean your gum line, which may place you at a higher risk for gum disease. If you choose traditional veneers, we will smooth the tooth using a grinding tool for a better fit.
Does the insurance covers dental veneers?
The short answer is no. We think that’s why you might be looking for affordable veneers options in Mexico.
While traditional dentistry is always a necessity, the patient can decide if he or she wants to pursue cosmetic treatments. Most insurance does not cover this type of procedures
