All You Need to Know about Dental Veneers
What are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are thin layers which are used for cosmetic reasons; to correct and improve deformity as well as whiteness and overall appearance of teeth. Dental veneers are mainly considered to have the same function as false fingernails have. Dental veneers cover the surface of teeth and hide, correct unwanted features of teeth. There are two types of dental veneers: porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Porcelain veneers are more expensive but more durable with more natural look whereas composite veneers are cheap but less durable. You can be a perfect candidate to have porcelain veneers, if you feel discomfort about:
• Broken tooth or teeth.
• Uneven teeth structure.
• Discoloured teeth.
• Spaces between teeth.
• Stained teeth.
How are Dental Veneers Performed?
Length of Dental Veneers: dental veneer procedure has 2 phases. First appointment is given for preparation and the second one is given for fitting. Both appointments, individually, take around 2 to 3 hours.
Inpatient or Outpatient: outpatient
Anaesthesia: local anaesthesia
At your first appointment, your MCAN Health dentist will examine your teeth and you will discuss about your expectation from porcelain veneers. The size, shape and colour of your teeth will be decided by you and your dentist. Your teeth will be prepared- some amount of your enamel will be shaved off- to make them ready for the application of porcelain veneers. Your MCAN Health dentist in Turkey will then take an imprint of your teeth by using a special dental tool. This impression will be sent to the dental laboratory to be used as a model to produce your veneers. You may be provided with temporary veneers until you get your new veneers by your MCAN Health dentist in Turkey.
At your second appointment, your MCAN Health dentist in Turkey will remove your temporary veneers if you have one. Your new veneers will be fitted on the surface of your teeth. Before your veneers are bonded to your teeth, you will have time to consider if you are happy with your dental veneers in terms of shape, size and colour. Any changes or alterations that you request will be done by your MCAN Health dentist in Turkey. Upon your approval, your MCAN Health dentist in Turkey will clean your teeth thoroughly with a special solution. Then your new porcelain veneers will be placed and bonded to your teeth by using a special adhesive. Then your new porcelain veneers will be exposed to a special light which will ensure that your porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth strongly. Finally your new teeth will be cleaned and polished.
