    Your frequently asked questions about cosmetic dentistry in Madrid

    1. How can I get a non-fake-looking restored smile?

    Before treatment, it’s actually very common for patients in Spain to say that they don’t want fake-looking teeth. This is very easy to avoid now: by using advanced technology and ‘natural algorithms’, we are able to create natural-looking teeth with form and texture and follow the 3D design on the real teeth. Every face has its own unique proportions and dimensions, by including these in the smile design process, teeth can be created in harmony and symmetry, which gives a naturally attractive result. In addition, when taking color into account, by not choosing something that is too white for example, also helps the smile to look more natural.2. 

    2. What are the different types of veneers available at your office?

    Our preference is to always work with porcelain veneers because of their excellent quality. As a result of the chemical bonding, which causes the tooth and the veneer to become one single, strong, stable core, porcelain veneers last longer than other types.

    3. How are porcelain veneers made?

    Innovation in dentistry has dramatically advanced in recent years, giving patients far more choice and much higher quality tooth restorations. Traditionally, veneers have been handcrafted by a ceramist, a lab technician. Now, veneers can also be milled in a machine using a 3D design.

     4. Do you offer composite veneers?

    We don't. This is because they don’t last as long as the porcelain veneers and require fixing more frequently, sometimes ending up more expensive for the patient as often, the whole veneer will have to be done again. The composite also stains more and the color doesn’t last as long. At Clinica Cloe, we only want to offer our patients the best treatment options, which is why we use porcelain.

    5. How long do veneers last?

    There have been such significant improvements in materials, bonding procedures, and cementation processes that veneers can last indefinitely.

    6. What factors affect how long veneers last? Can they change color or discolor over time?

    Patient compliance and patient maintenance are key! For example, veneers can last well if the patient takes good care of them by visiting their dental hygienist and following our instructions. It’s rare for veneers to discolor. As they are such polished materials, they are also very easy to clean and very easy to remove stains from.

    At Clinica Cloe, we are specialists in cosmetic dentistry with a track record of making happy patients! Our highly experienced team uses the very latest technology to offer innovative treatments and give our patients back the confidence to smile.
