Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are materials that are porcelain leaves that are glued to the front of the teeth. This is a feasible option because there is very little tissue that needs to be removed from the tooth for the veneer to be attached. It is sufficient to remove dental tissue (enamel) from the application area by an average of 0.3-0.7 mm in thickness. These veneers are aesthetically very successful due to their very thin and metal-free properties. Porcelain veneers have a unique ability to allow the light to pass through, making the teeth on which the veneers are applied look completely real.

The treatment process is very short. At the first examination, a measurement is taken from the patient without cutting the teeth using a mold. With this mold model, a mock-up (rehearsal work) application is made from a special material in the laboratory. The doctor and the patient have a chance to reach consensus on this 3D model. The teeth are then prepared with a short and painless procedure according to the measurement that has been taken. The doctor will provide the patient with temporary plastic veneers made in the form and length agreed upon, which are important in protecting the patient’s teeth until the actual veneers are glued, which may take a few days. The permanent veneers are attached onto the teeth, and the procedure is complete. Further changes may be made at a later appointment if needed, and other than porcelain, materials like composite resins may also be used to produce these veneers. The teeth and gums must be kept clean and healthy after the procedure just as one would do in the process of taking care of natural and intact teeth.
