Dental Aesthetics in Fuengirola and Mijas Costa
Every day, more and more patients are coming to us in search of the perfect smile, asking us to correct small defects and improve the way their teeth look.
At Clínicas Dentalcer, we are continually expanding to adopt the latest advances in dental aesthetics and searching for the best and latest materials and the least invasive techniques.
You might have heard of zirconium crowns, porcelain veneers, and so on. Below, we answer some frequently asked questions, in order to give you clear and accurate information about dental aesthetic treatments.
What is Zirconium?
Zirconium is a white, crystalline metal. It is used in the manufacturing of crowns that are placed on teeth and implants. Its main advantage is that it is a completely white material. Therefore, it prevents the development of dark areas (black edges) around the tooth which, over time, tend to appear with traditional metal-ceramic crowns.
In crowns, its white structure allows for better results in terms of aesthetics and translucency. Porcelain can be added to zirconium, or you can get solid zirconium, called monolithic zirconia.
In this image, you can see the difference between conventional ceramic metal crowns and zirconium ones at the edge of the gums.

What are porcelain veneers?
They are thin sheets of porcelain that adhere to the tooth and they are used to correct dental colour and shape defects. They require minimal preparation and they preserve practically all of the dental tissue.
There are different types of dental veneers, depending on the material we use, so you may have heard of feldspathic veneers (pure ceramics), disilicate veneers, and so on.
Having a beautiful smile can have a positive impact in many ways, improving the patient’s self-esteem and confidence. Also, as a result, many patients become more careful with their oral hygiene in order to maintain the results of their dental aesthetic treatment.
No, none of the treatments at DentalCer Clinics are painful for patients. Dental veneers can achieve the smile you are looking for without any discomfort. The experience of our dentist, Dr. Javier Cerezo, and the materials we use at our clinics make these treatments more comfortable for patients who come to our clinic.
Among several different popular dental aesthetic treatments, we offer teeth whitening and dental veneers. But they are not the only aesthetic treatments that can improve the smile of our patients. So please don’t hesitate to book an appointment with us to find out more.
