Dental veneers are the most preferred cosmetic treatments in the last years. Dental veneers are porcelain shells applied on teeth and they are shaped like natural teeth to improve the appearance of teeth. There are different types of dental veneers however porcelain laminate veneers and full veneers (also known as dental crowns) are the most popular ones.
Dental veneers are cosmetic concerned treatments. They do not reverse or treat disease related problems; but if you have severely discoloured or misaligned teeth, you may consider getting dental veneers in Turkey for a smile transformation.
The application of dental veneers is not a complicated process. The patient does not feel any discomfort during the procedure. The process starts with taking the impression of the teeth. Then, teeth need to be shaved down 0.5mm to 1.5mm for the application of dental veneers, therefore, this is an irreversible procedure. If you have any questions on your mind, please take your time to decide. We need 5 full business days to create your new teeth, therefore, after the first appointment, we will provide temporary teeth for you to use until the application of your new dental veneers. Temporary teeth will be free of charge.
Laminate veneers and full veneers are similar since they both are offered to improve the appearance of the teeth, however, they are recommended for different conditions. Teeth need to be shaved down 0,5mm for the application of laminate veneers and since they are translucent and only cover the visible surface of teeth, reshaping is limited, therefore, we do not recommend laminate veneers if you have severe discolouration, misalignments, bite issues or have large gaps between your teeth etc. For the application of full veneers, teeth need to be shaved down around 1-1,5 mm and since they cover teeth 360 degrees, we are able to close the gaps between teeth, reshape/realign teeth and cover the discolouration successfully.
Laminate veneers last for 10-15 years and they have a higher risk to chip or fall off compared to full veneers. That is why you should avoid chewing tough substances with dental veneers. In addition, if you have bruxism (teeth grinding), we do not recommend dental veneers because you may break or chip them while you are asleep. Full veneers last for 15-20 years and they are less likely to chip or fall off unless you try to open bottle caps or crack nuts.
Your oral hygiene and oral habits directly affect how long your veneers would last. You need to maintain good oral hygiene just like your natural teeth after the application of dental veneers. You need to floss and brush your teeth carefully twice a day and visit your dentist every six months for your regular check-ups, deep cleaning and scale&polishing.
Even though dental veneers do not change colour over time, they might get stained. For example, if you smoke or consume too much coffee or tea during the day, it would be faster. But there is nothing to worry about, you can visit a local dentist for scale&polishing to clear them in 10 minutes.
