Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are an aesthetic treatment that has spread from former Hollywood stars to the world to eliminate relatively minor aesthetic problems with the teeth. With their thin structure and high light transmittance, porcelain veneers can be produced in almost all tooth color shades.

Produced in line with different cosmetic and functional needs, porcelain veneers are offered in 4 different types.

  • All-porcelain veneers or conventional porcelain veneers.
  • Empress veneers are also known as Emax veneers.
  • Laminate or lumina veneers.
  • Zirconium porcelain veneers.

The dentist’s skill dramatically influences the success rate of veneer treatments. With almost 150 years of experience in modern dentistry, Turkey is also home to well-trained and experienced dentists.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are natural-looking veneers applied to tooth surfaces to correct discolorations, chips, minor cracks, and slight misalignments in the teeth. Porcelain veneers were first used by movie stars in the 1950s and became more common after the 1980s.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure

Because whitening cannot be done on porcelain veneers, if needed, tooth whitening procedures must be performed before the veneer treatment begins. Here are step-by-step procedures for porcelain veneers teeth;

First Appointment With the Dentist

Your dentist will take intraoral photographs, and dental x-rays, and perform a detailed oral examination.

Porcelain Veneer Preparation

After local anesthesia is applied to the patient, the dentist scrapes the tooth surface according to the type of porcelain veneer used. In some cases, the veneer procedure is continued after minor orthodontic treatments, which correct small misalignments.

Impression

After the dentist prepares your teeth for veneers, he will mold your teeth using a putty impression or intraoral scanner to craft your temporary veneers.

Determining tooth shade

The dentist and patient decide on which color tone to use.

Laboratory Phase

The tooth mold is sent to the laboratory with the determined tooth color. And within a few hours, your temporary veneers are produced.

Last Visit and Permanent Veneers

At your last visit about a week later, your dentist will remove your temporary veneers and take the last measurements. After the final corrections are made to the permanent veneers, they are inserted into their positions.

Bonding Permanent Veneers

Your dentist will attach your veneers with porcelain bonding resin to the teeth surface after all the adjustments are over and bid you farewell happily.

Some foods, such as sugar and ice, can cause invisible scratches on your veneers. Drinks such as coffee or red wine can also cause staining on the tooth surfaces.

Give up Smoking

If you want your pearly veneers to stay on for a long time, giving up smoking is a smart plan.
