Porcelain laminate veneers may not be the best dental treatment choice for you if your teeth are badly damaged, aged, or packed. Instead, dental crowns, often known as complete veneers or full veneers, maybe the recommended dental treatment for you. After a comprehensive evaluation of your case by a competent and knowledgeable dentist, the best kind of dental treatment should be determined, specific to you.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are often used to correct cosmetic dental issues. Full porcelain veneers may be used to provide a flawless and natural teeth appearance, especially when the front teeth are cosmetically troublesome. Please remember that dental veneers may be manufactured from various materials, including laminate or complete porcelain. We exclusively use complete porcelain veneers at our dental clinic in Istanbul since they are durable, natural-looking, and stain-resistant.
Dental veneers are tiny, tooth-coloured coverings that cover the front surfaces of teeth to enhance their look. They’re usually composed of porcelain, laminate or resin structural components and are attached to your teeth indefinitely. Dental veneers may be used to correct various aesthetic issues, including; broken, cracked, discoloured, or undersized teeth.
Some individuals only need one veneer when a tooth is damaged or cracked, but most need six to eight veneers to achieve an equal, balanced smile line. Dental veneers are most frequently used on the upper front eight teeth.
What are The Different Types of Dental Veneers?
Porcelain or laminate are the most frequent materials used for dental veneers. Traditional dental veneers need more preparatory work than substitutes, often referred to as; “no-prep veneers.” These no-prep veneers, including lumineers and vivaneeres, require less time to install and become less intrusive. Traditional dental veneers require pulverizing the tooth structure and, in some cases, even removing part of the teeth beyond the enamel. This enables accurate installation, but it’s a permanent operation that may be unpleasant and often necessitates local anaesthetic.
On the other hand, no-prep veneers may require some tooth preparations or modification, but only minor changes. No-prep veneers impact the enamel rather than removing layers of the tooth under the enamel. No-prep veneers don’t always need the use of local anaesthetics. Dental veneers are not the same as dental crowns or dental implants. Veneers are thin shells that cover the front of the teeth. Implants, on the other hand, are tooth replacements that replace the whole tooth. Veneers cover the tooth’s front surface, while crowns surround the whole tooth (visible with a smile).
Who Can Get Dental Veneers at Our Dental Clinic in Turkey?
In our dental clinic in Turkey, we use CAD/CAM digital tooth design to carry out the procedure required. The following are some of the reasons why you may choose to have a complete set of porcelain veneers:
- Heavy stains that are resistant to cosmetic teeth whitening,
- A non-orthodontic dental treatment option for tooth gaps or crooked teeth,
- Teeth that are broken or damaged beyond repair,
- Problems with the middle teeth’s placement or the extraction of a tooth.
How do you distinguish between veneers and crowns?
Crowns act as a covering over your teeth. A veneer is a thin shell placed on the front of your tooth to protect the dental tissues from harm.
How will my teeth seem after being reshaped for porcelain veneers?
Bonded veneers usually need two visits: one to form the teeth and another to cement these natural-looking replacements in place. Your dentist may install beautiful temporary veneers between appointments to help avoid discomfort, restore function, and give you a pleasant smile.
These temporary veneers are only meant to be in your mouth for a short period, but they should keep you comfortable until your new veneers are installed.
Will having veneers on my teeth cause cavities?
As long as veneers are properly cared for, there is no difference in the incidence of dental decay.
What are the advantages of dental veneers?
Veneers retain the most significant tooth structure possible since just a tiny quantity of tooth structure must be removed. Dental veneers may significantly enhance the look of your teeth, and gum tissues well tolerate them. The colour may be customized to match the rest of the teeth, and these restorations are very stain resistant.
What are dental veneers’ disadvantages?
The procedure is not recoverable after your tooth has been prepped for the veneer. It is difficult to restore a veneer that has cracked without having to replace the whole veneer. Veneers are not a suitable choice for individuals who have poor gum health. Pen-chewing and nail-biting are bad habits to avoid since they may break the veneer.
Additionally, individuals who grind or clench their teeth put their veneers in danger of fracturing or breaking. Finally, since veneers are still vulnerable to deterioration, you must regularly maintain good dental hygiene and see your dentist.

How Long Does a Laminate Veneer Last?
Laminate veneers are made using E-MAX material at our dental facility. For laminate veneers, E-MAX is recognized to be the most durable material available. You may expect to have a longlasting smile if you don’t grind your teeth.
How Much are Veneers in Turkey?
Veneers in Turkey are much more affordable than in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Europe. You can get a full set of veneers in Turkey for £250 each.
Porcelain laminate veneers are very costly in most countries since they need extensive lab work and creative touches to provide a natural and appealing tooth appearance. However, you may save up to 70% on porcelain laminate veneers treatment at our dental facility in Istanbul.
How Many Appointments Do I Need For Dental Veneers?
In most cases, three to four visits are required. The first visit is for an examination and consultation (considering your preferences for the shape, size, and colour of your dental veneers), x-ray, finalizing the dental treatment plan, and finally preparing the teeth, taking the imprint and placing your temporary dental veneers.
The practice part is the second appointment. Your dental veneers will be examined by the dentist and ceramist together, and you will be asked for comments on the shape, size, and veneer colour. We want you to be completely satisfied with your dental veneers, not just 90 per cent; thus, any input you provide during the rehearsal visit is essential. When you are happy with the final appearance of your laminate veneers, they are ready to be installed in your mouth.
The third visit is for the dental veneers to be permanently fitted to your mouth. This process requires careful attention to detail and takes some time. As a result, a local anaesthetic is administered before dental surgery for your comfort. The dental veneers are carefully placed one by one, with sufficient friction between them to allow flossing.
The fourth visit is for final checks and controls to ensure that you are delighted with your bite after eating with your new teeth. Second and third visits, or third and fourth appointments, may be merged on the same day, depending on the extent of the dental treatment and your appointment calendar. Also, please be informed that we are doing a unique procedure on your teeth. As a result, the frequency and length of appointments may vary. At the end of the day, our team strives for perfection in cosmetic dentistry.
What Is The Difference Between a Dental Crown and Laminate Veneers in Terms of Aesthetics?
The answer to this question is yes and no. An E-MAX crown (full veneer) and an E-MAX veneer are made of the same components and have the same appearance. Patients have a common misconception regarding the appearance of dental crowns.
The majority of people believe that dental crowns are less attractive than laminate veneers. In reality, it’s only a misunderstanding. Because most dental laboratories lack the necessary expertise or time to create beautiful dental crowns, several dental crowns do not seem attractive.
Because producing a dental crown is a straightforward and uncomplicated procedure, most dental laboratories can produce dental crowns but not laminate veneers. However, like with laminate veneers, additional effort and creative touches are necessary to create an attractive and flawless outcome with dental crowns or full veneers.
Dental crowns may be made to look as good as laminate veneers in this manner. Unfortunately, not every lab can produce aesthetically pleasing dental crowns. That is why we have our laboratory. Our skilled ceramists are among the finest in Istanbul, Turkey, and they operate like craftsmen to produce the most beautiful dental crowns, full veneers, and porcelain laminate veneers in Turkey.
