Veneers can be a great way to treat various cosmetic concerns including discolored, chipped, broken, or misaligned teeth. They’re often the best fix to achieve your “dream smile” since they practically guarantee perfect pearly whites. But you may have some concerns about the installation of veneers and their results, so we’re here to introduce you to a world-renowned dentist’s secret to achieving the best natural-looking smile on the market.
“Secret Veneers” are a newly-designed version of the traditional veneers as introduced by leading and award-winning Colombian dentist, Dr. Daniel Zabaleta. A veneer consists of a thin shell that is placed in front of a natural tooth to alter its appearance. Secret Veneers differ slightly from traditional ones in application technique as Dr. Zabaleta’s are meticulously customized layer-by-layer, and they are made out of 100% dental porcelain. Each veneer is carefully made to fit the patient’s tooth and colored to match the rest of the patient’s smile (unless they request the pieces to be whiter in color). They can be made to alter a tooth’s size, shape, and color. In several cases, veneers can also correct gaps, chips, and minor alignment issues.
Dr. Zabaleta’s holistic approach aims to seek the best results for the patient in terms of a natural-looking smile. His dental office in Barranquilla, “Sonrisa Italiana”, prides itself on making sure the result is always your ideal smile, and not thick, bulky, or “fake” looking teeth. Dr. Daniel Zabaleta holds a DDS from the Fundación Universitaria San Martin and has over 17 years of experience in dentistry. He has obtained over sixty internationally-recognized post-graduate degrees and certificates and has won over four top-merited international awards. His newly designed version of the veneer has been performed over 50,000 times and has a 99% patient satisfaction rate.
Many potential candidates for the procedure share concerns that the veneers may damage their natural teeth or are fearful that the procedure requires their teeth to be shaved down, but Dr. Zabaleta tells us that neither is true, and the procedure is, in fact, nearly painless.
Assuming a patient’s teeth are properly cared for, the veneers can usually last a minimum of 25-30 years. In most cases, however, the installation can last up to a lifetime. Proper maintenance for veneers is just like proper maintenance for natural teeth, which includes routine visits to the dentist’s office every 4-6 months, bi-annual cleanings, and of course, daily dental care such as toothbrushing and flossing.
Costs for the cosmetic procedure tend to cost an average of $40,000 in the United States with a leading dentist, but in Dr. Zabaleta’s home office in Colombia, it’ll cost you nearly a quarter of that. Their Secret Veneers start anywhere from $6,500 and can vary depending on each patient’s case.
