Porcelain Veneers Turkey & Lumineers

(Pros, Cons and Cost)

Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers are the first choice that comes to mind when it comes to cosmetic dentistry today. They are very aesthetically pleasing due to the brightness and translucency of the porcelain material used. In Snowdrop Premium Dental Turkey, we use eMax ceramic for veneers.

Porcelain veneers aim to present a near-perfect smile on the one hand, and on the other hand, helps the person to perform their oral functions completely. Porcelain veneers are among the most ideal aesthetic dental treatments in order to have a perfect smile and to smile with confidence.

Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers

What Is Porcelain Veneers & Lumineers?

Porcelain veneers is a very thin shell made of dental ceramic which is bonded on to the front surface of a tooth. And a great option to aesthetically alter the appearance of your front teeth with minimal abrasion. Also, porcelain veneers are known as ‘minimal prep veneers’. As they only require the thinnest amount of prep work to the front and edge of your own teeth.

We can also compare porcelain veneers to fake nails or contact lenses. Veneers adhere to the outer surface of the tooth and enhance the smile, just as a false nail adheres to the upper surface of the nail or a contact lens fits on the outer surface of the eye.

Porcelain veneers do not surround the tooth like crowns, they only cover the anterior surface of the tooth. Sometimes our clients think that porcelain veneers may break or fall off because they are thin, which is completely wrong. Porcelain veneers literally fuse to the tooth beyond sticking. They can be used for an average of 15 years when the correct methods are applied to the suitable teeth.

What Are The Differences Between Veneers and Lumineers?

Same porcelain material (eMax ceramic) uses for Dental Lumineers and Veneers. Porcelain veneers may require a very small amount of abrasion from the tooth, whereas Lumineers do not need tooth abrasion. 

Usually Lumineers are thiner than Porcelain Veneers. While Porcelain Veneers are 0,5 mm thick, Lumineers are just 0,3 mm thick. Lumineers are also known as ‘prepless veneers‘. Veneers are also known as ‘minimal prep veneers‘. 

In summary, it may be recommended for lumineers if your teeth need to be already aligned or if you have gaps between your teeth. Because lumineers are thin and usually do not require shaving from the tooth.

Porcelain veneers can be used in cases where there are slight alignment problems in your teeth (but cannot be done in severe crowding).

Also for porcelain veneers and lumineers, your top and bottom teeth relations should also be ideal. There should be no problems such as crossbite, deepbite or overbite etc.

Snowdrop Premium Dental Turkey’s dentists can help you decide if veneers or lumineers are the right option for you. Please contact us to get more information.

How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?

Porcelain veneers treatment is an ideal method for providing an aesthetic tooth appearance and fulfilling natural tooth functions. Porcelain veneers, which can produce very good results when used with simple protection measures, allows teeth to look healthy, white and aesthetic, and allows crowding up to a certain amount to be resolved without orthodontic treatment.

The strength and durability of the eMax ceramic material we use in Porcelain Dental Veneers has been proven by scientific studies. When porcelain veneers and lumineers are applied with the right methods to the appropriate tooth, they remain as the first day for many years. You can use Porcelain Dental Veneers and Lumineers for 10-15 years on average. With proper oral care, this period can increase to 25 years. In addition, the maintenance of these restorations is just like a normal tooth, you don’t need to do anything extra other than brushing and flossing.

How To Take Care Of Porcelain Veneers Turkey

The most important point to be considered in the care of Porcelain Veneer is to prevent the veneers from force and breaking. Although the porcelain veneers are made of solid and strong material, they have a very thin structure. Human teeth are also exposed to many different factors during the day. Attention should be paid to hard foods consumed during the day.After the effort is made to prevent the porcelain veneer from breaking, the care that needs to be done is related to hygiene and oral care.

Porcelain veneer application is made with special resin adhesive materials with high bonding. In this respect, contrary to popular belief, a situation such as the falling of porcelain veneers is a very weak possibility today. A person who has porcelain veneer should give importance to dental and oral care as before after the application. Porcelain veneers, which are brushed regularly, mouthwash and dental floss are used when necessary, can be used for many years just like natural teeth. In addition, acidic drinks should not be consumed too often. Acid can lead to a decrease in the effect of the glue in the long term.

Porcelain Veneers Turkey

In our dental clinic, which provides service within the framework of Porcelain Veneers Turkey treatment, we apply different veneers methods to our patients within the scope of smile makeover. Among these dental applications, one of the most preferred dental veneers in recent years is porcelain veneer. The biggest reasons for this are that they look very aesthetic and that the teeth are not shaved (or minimal shaving).


How Is Porcelain Veneer Dental Treatment Done?

First of all, we check our patients who want to have a veneer in detail and make the necessary tests. As a result of the examinations we have made, if the problem experienced by our patient can be resolved with porcelain veneers treatment, we start the treatment with the patient’s approval.
In Porcelain veneers dental treatment, we first clean the teeth. Then, if needed, we do filing on the teeth at rates ranging from 0.3 mm to 0.7 mm. The purpose of this is to ensure that the veneers fit the tooth completely. Then, we take the necessary measurements from the teeth for porcelain veneers suitable for the tooth. We send these digitally transferred measurements to the laboratory and order the veneers. After we receive the permanent veneers, which arrive in about a few days, we move on to the stage of applying these veneers to the teeth. We apply Porcelain (Laminate Veneer) veneers, which are taken to full measurements, to the teeth with a specially produced adhesive. After the veneer is glued to the tooth, we finish the treatment process after some minor corrections and filings.
