They say that flashing a smile is one of the simplest ways to make a great first impression; but for patients whose teeth are yellowed or uneven, it isn’t always that easy. Many patients suffer from cosmetic imperfections in their teeth such as stains, chips, cracks or overcrowding, leading them to feel self-conscious in everyday situations. At Durán & Martínez Cosmetic and Reconstructive Dentistry, we believe that all patients deserve to have beautiful, healthy teeth that they are proud to smile wide with. Puerto Rico cosmetic dentist Dr. Ramon Durán is pleased to offer porcelain veneers to patients who wish to enhance their smiles.

What Are Veneers?
Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain or plastic that are placed over the teeth to cover up imperfections in the smile. Unlike dental crowns, which encase the entire tooth, porcelain veneers only cover the front of the teeth. They are also a longer-lasting solution than dental bonding. At Durán & Martínez Cosmetic and Reconstructive, we pride ourselves on providing the highest-quality porcelain veneers, and work closely with two of the area’s top dental labs to provide our patients with beautiful, natural-looking restorations. Porcelain veneers reflect light similarly to natural teeth, and can be shaded to match surrounding teeth, making them virtually undetectable to others.
This versatile dental treatment can be used to eliminate a number of flaws in the smile, including:
- Attach dental bridges
- Cover dental implants
- Cover a chipped or cracked tooth
- Restore the appearance of the tooth after extensive decay or dental work
- Cover a compromised dental filling
Veneers can be used on a single tooth that is hindering the appearance of the smile, or they can be placed on several teeth to accomplish a complete smile makeover.
