What Are Veneers?

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain, zirconia, or composite resin bonded to your teeth and can change the size, shape, or color of your smile.

They repair crooked, stained, and chipped teeth.

They should not be confused with crowns. Crowns act as a cap that wraps around your teeth recommended for broken teeth, deep cavities, and root canals.

It’s also worth mentioning that veneers are a purely cosmetic procedure. That means your dental insurance will most likely not cover their cost.

Types of Teeth Veneers in Turkey


Porcelain Veneers in Turkey

  • Porcelain veneers can last 10 to 20 years with proper treatment and maintenance.
  • Typically the veneer procedure involves trimming the tooth enamel which makes it an irreversible procedure.

Procedure

The time to complete the procedure varies depending on the type and the technology that the dentist uses.

Rest assured, you don’t have to make multiple trips to Turkey to get it done.

Here’s an overview of what to expect:


  • Your doctor will do an exam and diagnostic tests (X-rays and CT scans), then ask about your goals and expectations.
  • Later, impressions are taken and sent to the lab to make a trial set (mockup) of veneers.

  • The lab creates a wax model to ensure the patient likes the veneers’ shape and length.
  • Then, the mockup is placed over the existing teeth to see if the patient approves the overall look.

  • The patient is made comfortable for the procedure with a local anesthetic. Then, a small amount of the facial enamel is removed.
  • Afterward, impressions are taken for the lab to create the veneers. Temporary ones (meant to last for 2 weeks) are provided while permanent ones are being made.

  • The procedure starts like appointment 3 with an injection, and then the permanent veneers are tried in and placed.

Dental Veneers Procedure

Dental Veneers Procedure

Should the dentist you choose have CAD/CAM technology, you can leave your appointment with same-day veneers.

This technology enables your dentist to upload 3D scans onto his computer, from which he can design them while you’re sitting comfortably on the chair.

You can also request adjustments on the spot. Once you feel satisfied with the computer-generated smile, the final mockup is sent to an onsite laboratory.

After fabrication, the veneers are placed during the same appointment.

Success Rate

Dental veneers have a high success rate with few complications, as shown in the following table.

Type Survival rate
Porcelain 10-year survival rate close to 95% [5]
Composite A 10-year survival rate of 90% [6]
Laminate 10-year survival rate of 93.5% [7]
Zirconia 5-year survival rate of 97.6% [8]

Pros and Cons

Lumineers are irreversible.  [12] May need replacement after 10 years. [13]
 Your smile can be customized. Bruxers have a lower success rate. [14]

Aftercare

Caring for your veneers, like the rest of your mouth should be a priority. Otherwise, you risk reducing their life span.

Here are some quick tips to help you increase their longevity:

Keep a Teeth-friendly Diet

Certain foods, when consumed continually over time, can discolor your veneers. These foods include tea, coffee, and berries.

Create a Bulletproof Oral Hygiene Routine

That includes brushing your teeth after consuming staining foods, once in the morning and once before bed. Also, use mouthwash daily.

Regular Check-ups

Regular checkups with your dentist and professional cleanings with a hygienist should be done twice a year.

Invest in a Nightguard

It could be a lifesaver for those who grind their teeth (Bruxism).
