Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are a common procedure in aesthetic and preventive dentistry. These veneers are placed over teeth or implants that have become unusable for various reasons. Veneers are very close to natural teeth in terms of appearance and function.

Dental veneers can be made using materials such as porcelain, zirconium and crowns. These materials have a usage area in line with their prices, appearance and functionality. For the front teeth, materials with more transparent properties are more commonly used, while for molars, materials known for their resistance and durability are used more frequently. However, there are also materials suitable for use on all teeth.

Teeth can decay, fall out or break due to various reasons. In this case, there are various dentistry applications that restore teeth in terms of function and appearance. Dental crowns are used in many of these applications. Veneers are placed in the area after canal and filling procedures or dental bridge and implant applications by protecting the tooth roots. These veneers are highly similar to natural teeth both in appearance and in their role in eating, drinking and speaking functions.

Some factors that people who want to have their teeth veneered or who will get their new teeth after prosthesis, implant, etc. should pay attention to can be listed as follows;

  • The experience of the physician who will perform the procedure in this field,
  • The technology to be used when producing the coating,
  • The quality and practicality of the coating material,
  • Hygiene and equipment of the clinic where the procedure is performed.

Thanks to veneers, it is possible for a person to have new teeth without any loss in terms of both aesthetics and health. This process is used in many areas from prosthesis or bridge applications to equalization of tooth lengths. Thanks to developing medicine and technology, application times have shortened, costs have decreased and quality and permanence have increased.

How are Dental Veneers Made?

Many people who complain of tooth loss, decay or aesthetic problems in their teeth are looking for answers to questions such as “how to make veneers“. It should be known that there is no single application method for veneers. The financial possibilities of the patient, whether multiple or single veneers will be made, types of veneers, etc. can affect the details of the procedure. However, veneer applications are basically done as follows;

  • The dentist evaluates the patient’s condition and checks whether it is suitable for the procedure.
  • A mold of the area is taken, and veneers of appropriate size and properties are produced in the laboratory.
  • If necessary, temporary veneers that the patient can use for eating and drinking etc. are attached.
  • The veneer prepared in the laboratory is checked, placed in the patient’s mouth and glued.
  • The patient is examined to ensure that the veneer is compatible with the patient’s teeth and gums.

If the patient is in the implant crown process, the healing process of the implant, etc. is waited. If there is an application such as a crown bridge, it is ensured that the process proceeds in accordance with this process. Thus, it is possible to have artificial teeth that can be used for a long time and are as strong as one’s own teeth.

How Long Does 1 Veneer Tooth Last?

One of the most frequently wondered questions about veneer applications, apart from the question of how it is done and veneer prices, is the duration of the application.

Answers to questions such as root canal treatment, fracture or “How to make a carious tooth veneer” will have different answers.

  • The production process can usually be completed within a week.
  • Veneer placement-gluing takes about ten minutes.

Therefore, at least two sessions are required for a single tooth veneer. In the first session, existing problems are solved and the patient’s tooth impression is taken and the next procedure is only required for bonding and control. After these steps, it is possible to use the veneers for many years with adequate oral care.

Types of Veneer Teeth

There is no single answer to questions such as which is the best dental veneer. The molars or front teeth, the veneers to be used after decay or implant application, and the details of the procedure may differ from each other. Some types of dental veneers are as follows;

Porcelain Veneers: It is preferred because of its natural appearance. However, these veneers are not very durable. For this reason, they are not preferred for molars.

Metal Veneers: It has a durable structure but does not look aesthetically good. Its usage area is limited due to its unaesthetic appearance and the risk of metal allergy.

Zirconium Veneers: Zirconia veneers are one of the most popular applications of the last period. Many people have zirconium teeth because they are both durable and stylish.
