Porcelain laminate veneers
Porcelain laminate veneers turkey are a fast, aesthetic and safe way to correct bad looking anterior teeth. Significant permanent stains, crooked, disproportionate, intermittent, small or deformed teeth can be corrected with this method. Porcelain laminate veneers are ceramic materials that can be chemically bonded to the tooth structure and are the main treatment method used in aesthetic treatments. One of the most important innovations in aesthetic dentistry is the development of new bonding techniques and tools that enable dentists to successfully combine materials of different tissues. The strength of the bonding between porcelain laminate veneers and the tooth surface is often so great that if any trauma occurs, it can cause fractures in the tooth, not on the surface between the porcelain veneer and the tooth. The materials of the porcelain laminate veneers adhered to the tooth structure display physical properties similar to natural tooth enamel. In addition, with the advancement of ceramic technology, natural layers and the translucency of shiny teeth have become perfectly reproducible.
Why porcelain laminate veneer?
If you want to change the color, shape or size of your teeth, porcelain laminate veneers are the perfect solution. At the same time, this method will be useful if you want to close a gap between your teeth or correct crookedness. Beyond all these problems, your porcelain laminate veneer treatment can end in a short time such as 5-7 days. This treatment period is much shorter than orthodontics, which take 2 to 3 years and never change the color of your teeth.
Which treatments or problems are corrected with the porcelain laminate veneer method?
There are many reasons why patients prefer porcelain laminate veneer treatment.
Stained Teeth: Stained teeth that cannot be corrected by bleaching or preliminary disease treatments can be treated with laminate dental coatings that cover or hide any stains on the teeth.
Damaged Teeth: Veneers can also be used in teeth that are badly worn with excessive chewing and carbonated drinks or scratched or broken in an accident. A small scratch on the tooth can be treated quickly with “composite” or “laminate veneers”. Even if a single tooth is damaged, it can be treated with a natural-looking porcelain laminate veneer by harmonizing its color with the color of the other teeth.
Gaps: Intervals or gaps (diastemas) between the teeth can be easily covered with laminate veneers to make your smile look nicer.
Crooked Teeth: Laminate veneers are not as ideal a treatment method as orthodontic treatment in preserving the naturalness of crooked teeth, however, since the duration of treatment with braces is between 1-2 years, laminate veneers glued to the front surface of the teeth to provide regular and perfectly aligned smiles is preferred for anterior teeth that are not excessively crooked. When it comes to this type of treatment, most people refer to laminate veneers as “instant orthodontics” because you will get the same result as orthodontics in a much shorter time.
How are laminate veneers fitted?
Treatment begins by having a consultation with a physician and an examination. Thus, the dentist can envision what you want, your needs and priorities. The dentist should explain the procedure properly and reveal the possible cost. Before porcelain laminate veneers are designed, your dentist will reshape the front surface of your teeth so they can accommodate laminate veneers. In the first stage, it may be necessary to numb your teeth and gums with local anesthesia. This will prevent any discomfort during the procedure.
A small part of the front surface of the teeth is prepared with a special tool called a dental bur that is attached to rotary tools. The prepared part should generally be the same thickness as the laminate coating to be placed on the upper part of the tooth. It is 3-5 mm on average. Thickness of wear is sufficient.
Subsequently the teeth are measured. A container with a special paste used by dentists is placed in the mouth and pressed onto the teeth. Thus, a mold of the teeth is obtained like leaving a footprint in the sand. This measurement or mold of the teeth is sent to a dental laboratory. The laboratory uses this impression to reveal a correct model of the teeth, and this model guides in the preparation of new laminate veneers. This process takes 4-6 days.
While you are waiting for the preparation of your porcelain laminate veneers, your dentist places ready-made temporary laminate veneers on your teeth to prevent damage to your teeth, or temporary fillings are made on the front surfaces of the teeth with filling materials on the same day.
At the second appointment, the dentist places the porcelain laminate veneers on the teeth. The dentist will first attach the laminate veneers temporarily to the teeth so you can see how they look when you laugh before sticking them on. This way, you can see and evaluate how your new smile will look beforehand.
After the decision to place the prepared laminate veneers, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and the front surfaces are roughened with a special acid gel to make them suitable for adhesion.
The laminate veneers are then glued in place and a special curing light is used to activate the dental adhesive. Thus, the laminate coatings are permanently adhered to the front surface of the teeth. If there is too much glue, this excess is usually removed and used to polish teeth for a beautiful and natural look.
How long do porcelain laminate veneers last?
Porcelain laminate veneers have many advantages in dental aesthetics compared to other bonding techniques. The first and most important of these is that porcelain laminate veneers are stain resistant. The person does not have to worry about a color change that will occur over the years. Thanks to its smooth porcelain surface, no stains can penetrate the porcelain and can be easily removed. Also, porcelain is very similar to tooth enamel in terms of reflecting light. Tooth enamel is translucent and allows light to pass through until it reaches the opaque tooth structure that reflects light. Similarly, porcelain allows light to pass through. Light passes through the porcelain until it hits the glue or internal tooth structure that will reflect it.
Finally, porcelain laminate veneers are versatile. They can be used in minor orthodontic treatments such as minor directional changes, correction of gaps or misalignment, as well as many problems such as hiding teeth that are very discolored due to root canal treatment and tetracycline stains caused by old fillings. In short, they can be used for almost all minor tooth defects.
Veneers Turkey Disadvantages;
As mentioned earlier, porcelain laminate veneers are not as conservative as whitening. In order to be done properly, a certain part of the tooth structure must be abraded. How much this is varies, but is usually between one-third and two-thirds of a millimeter. This is usually the thickness of porcelain laminate veneers. Preparing a place in the front of the tooth also prevents the tooth from looking too wide or bulky later on. Laminate veneer treatment usually requires two sessions and the first time temporary preparation is done. Another disadvantage of porcelain veneers is their cost. Insurances generally does not cover the cost as this operation is considered done for aesthetic purposes. The cost of laminate veneers varies according to geographic regions, but a typical porcelain laminate veneer costs around 300-500 Euros each and often more than one tooth needs to be treated. Therefore, having porcelain laminate veneers is a very costly procedure for most people.
Porcelain laminate veneers should be considered when the bleaching process does not give the desired result, to eliminate minor orthodontic problems and to correct dental aesthetics if there are defects. For those who can afford it, laminates are the powerful, even most effective way to enhance a smile.
So which will it be: composite laminate veneers or porcelain laminate veneers?
The most popular of the laminate veneers is porcelain laminate veneers, which are a stronger and more durable option than the composite alternative. Some dentists place composite laminate veneers on teeth. However, porcelain laminate veneers are much better with their long-term robustness. In addition, composite laminate veneers are more prone to staining and are not as permanent as porcelain laminate veneers, which provide a more natural and tooth-like translucent appearance. Composite laminate veneers are much more affordable than porcelain veneers, but they are more expensive in the long run considering they do not last as long as the porcelain ones and require replacement more often. Composite procedures are ideal for small shaping operations because most of the natural tooth structure is preserved. Laminate veneers are attached to the front surface of the existing tooth.
Your new Porcelain Laminate veneers will last approximately 10 years. This time depends on how you take care of them. If you chew hard things they will last for a shorter time than if you used them only for eating regular food. Furthermore, the more effort you put into caring for them, the longer they will last. If you visit your dentist regularly, you can make him or her make minor interventions to your laminates in terms of both biting and hygiene. Your laminate veneers will last much longer than would be expected, even if your care is less than perfect.
