What is Porcelain Dental Veneers?

Having beautiful and healthy teeth is one of the most important factors that make a person self-confident. It is often encountered that the opposite situation causes a lack of self-confidence. Aesthetic concerns about the appearance of teeth due to various reasons are eliminated by porcelain dental veneers. It is ensured that the individual has a more beautiful and healthy motive.

Another feature of porcelain dental veneers is that they not only give people the smile they want, but also ideal oral functions. Porcelain dental veneers are a patient-specific, in other words, customizable dental procedure. In this way, treatment is planned and porcelain dental veneers are prepared in accordance with the needs and expectations of each patient, as well as to provide a natural appearance. Effective results can be achieved by applying porcelain dental veneers in quality, shape and appearance to represent the natural appearance.

The dental coating technique, in which materials obtained from porcelain are used to cover the surface of natural teeth, is called porcelain dental veneers. Thanks to porcelain dental veneers, which is a cosmetic and restorative treatment method, it is possible to correct many different defects in the teeth. Porcelain dental veneers can be preferred to change the color, shape and size of damaged, crooked or gapped teeth. Porcelain veneers are produced in a laboratory environment following the process steps such as taking patient-specific measurements and mold removal.

How is Porcelain Tooth Veneer Procedure Performed?

The patient who wants to have porcelain dental veneer treatment is informed about the process. He/she undergoes a detailed examination and X-rays are taken if deemed necessary. Measurements of the patient's existing teeth are taken and a model is created. With the help of computer technologies, a three-dimensional image of the teeth is obtained. The veneer is prepared in the dental laboratory using the models or images. Porcelain dental veneers are usually ready within 2 to 3 weeks. This period may vary depending on the number of teeth to be crowned.

To determine the most accurate color for porcelain dental veneers, the patient's teeth are thoroughly cleaned. The enamel layer of the tooth is slightly abraded and a new impression is taken. The abrasion process ensures that porcelain dental veneers adhere easily to the teeth. Temporary veneers are applied to the patients until porcelain dental veneers are prepared according to the measurements taken.

When porcelain dental veneers are ready, they are not immediately permanently bonded to the patient's teeth. First, porcelain dental veneers are temporarily bonded to the teeth. The patient is asked to use the teeth for a few days. The purpose of this is to evaluate the fit of the porcelain dental veneers.

At the end of the specified period, if the patient and dentist agree on the color and form of the porcelain dental veneers, the porcelain dental veneers are permanently bonded. A special adhesive is used for this and the porcelain dental veneers are fixed. They are then hardened by radiation curing, any excess is removed and the teeth are polished. A few weeks after the porcelain dental veneers treatment, the patient is called for a follow-up examination. The reaction of the gums to the veneers is checked.

In Which Situations Porcelain Veneers Are Applied?

Porcelain dental veneers are applied to eliminate serious problems and losses that occur in teeth due to different reasons. Porcelain dental veneers can be a functional solution for teeth that are broken during the root canal treatment procedure, have excessive loss of material, and have decay underneath. Porcelain dental veneers can be applied when there is a lack of teeth in the mouth, crowded teeth or when a better aesthetic appearance is desired.

Some situations that require porcelain dental veneer treatment can be listed as follows:

  • Mild crowding and curvatures in the teeth that do not require orthodontic treatment
  • Worn, broken or decayed front teeth
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Discoloration and staining of the teeth

What are the Types of Porcelain Dental Veneers?

Porcelain dental veneers are categorized under 4 groups.

Porcelain Laminate: Some abrasion is made from the surface of the tooth and very thin sheets of porcelain are adhered to the tooth. It does not contain metal and is resistant to breakage.

Zirconium Veneer: Zirconium, a white metal present in nature, stands out with its durability and aesthetic appearance. Zirconium porcelain veneers can be used on front and back teeth.

Metal Supported Veneers: During the construction phase, metal is left under the porcelain. It provides the required durability in harmony with the tooth tissue. Since the metal in the substructure does not transmit light, a matte appearance may occur on the gums. It is generally preferred to be applied to the back teeth.

Full Porcelain Dental Veneers: It is a type of porcelain dental coating applied on the tooth. The perimeter of the tooth to be applied is prepared for coating by shaving equally. Its durability is increased by adding glass ceramic on the ceramic pieces. It may be preferred for crooked and broken teeth.

What are the Advantages of Porcelain Dental Veneers?

  • It helps to have an aesthetic smile.
  • It has a shorter treatment process compared to many other dentistry procedures.
  • It is extremely durable thanks to the material used in its production.
  • It offers a long and healthy lifetime if the correct oral and dental care routine is applied and dentist examinations are not interrupted.

What is the Difference Between Porcelain Veneers and Zirconium Teeth?

In the porcelain coating method, metal-supported coating is made to ensure durability. The metal bridge used in porcelain dental veneers using a material called dental ceramic is usually platinum or gold. If these metals are alloyed, it is possible to increase durability and reach the strength of steel. However, metals are not fully compatible with teeth and gums and do not have light transmittance. This can result in a dull and dull appearance, far from the natural tooth color.

In porcelain dental veneer treatment, the color of the metals is darkened to provide fixation to the tooth, and due to the placement of a dark substance under the tooth, a purple color forms around the gum over time. Gum recession may even occur.

If the porcelain dental veneer does not fully fit the gum, food residues accumulate in the gaps between the tooth and the veneer. Bad breath and tooth decay may occur. In such cases, porcelain dental veneers can turn into a disadvantage for patients who want to achieve an aesthetic appearance.

Porcelain dental veneers can cause an artificial appearance on the front teeth because they are not permeable to light. In porcelain dental veneer treatment, natural teeth are intervened with cutting, thinning and filing processes. A rough appearance can be prevented by removing excess tooth tissue.

In zirconium tooth coating treatment, tooth coating without metal support is applied. Zirconium, a light-permeable substance, provides a natural appearance. Zirconium coating does not damage teeth and gums. While zirconium dental coating, which provides easy adaptation, intervention to natural teeth is at a minimum level. It is no different from natural teeth in terms of hot - cold permeability and sensitivity. Although it is a thin and transparent substance, zirconium has an extremely robust structure.

How to Care After Porcelain Dental Veneers?

For at least 1 week after porcelain dental veneers treatment, extremely hot - extremely cold foods and drinks and hard foods that can stick to the teeth should not be consumed. Proper oral hygiene is very important for the safe and healthy use of porcelain dental veneers for a long time. To ensure this, teeth should be brushed regularly with non-abrasive toothpastes. Dental floss should be used twice a day and care should be taken to use mouthwash after each tooth brushing.

Although the risk of staining of porcelain dental veneers is extremely low, consumption of acidic foods and beverages should be avoided to ensure long-lasting use. In addition, tea, coffee, cigarettes, cherry juice, caramel, tomato paste, red wine and other foods and beverages that may cause discoloration on the teeth should be avoided.

Avoiding impacts that may cause damage to porcelain dental veneers, being careful during the consumption of hard foods and not tearing the food with the front teeth can be listed among other factors to be considered. People who have porcelain dental veneers treatment should use protective aligners at night if they have the habit of clenching or grinding their teeth. In this way, it may be possible to use porcelain dental veneers safely for a long time.

Porcelain Tooth Veneer Prices

Porcelain dental veneer prices are determined according to the scope of the treatment to be applied, how many teeth will be porcelain veneered, the quality of the material to be used, whether different dentistry procedures are needed, the price policy of the clinic and many other factors. In addition to these, how many sessions the application will be completed is one of the factors taken into consideration when determining porcelain dental veneer prices.
