    Its appearance is natural

    Due to its high light transmittance, the closest image to natural teeth emerges. It is difficult to notice that an artificial veneer is made on the tooth covered with leaf tooth.

    Laminate veneer does not discolor

    The surface of the laminated veneer is not rough. Due to this feature, there is no discoloration, no tartar formation, even in long-term use.

    Smiles become aesthetic

    Since personalized modeling is done during the preparation phase, you will have an idea about the image that will be formed after the dental veneer is completed. Smile samples are also made during the preparation phase. After these preparations and the veneer process, the smiles become aesthetic.

    Laminate veneer is durable

    It has high resistance to abrasion on the tooth surface. It can be used for a long time because it is durable. Porcelain veneers have a lifespan of 10-15 years if well-maintained.

    No sensitivity

    Since the amount of removed tooth tissue is filled very little, there is no sensitivity to hot or cold.

    Implementation time is short

    Two sessions, measuring in the first session and veneer in the second, may be sufficient. In cases requiring pre-treatment, the time may be extended (such as gingival treatment).

    The amount of cut in the main tooth is very small

    Because it is a small type of veneer, very little cutting is done on the main tooth. It is sufficient to open a slot by taking 0.3-0.6 mm from the outer side of the tooth. The reason why it is called a nail tooth is that the veneer is both thin and similar to the nail.

    Easy to get used to

    It is easy to get used to the new teeth after the treatment because the amount of cut is small and the chewing surfaces of the teeth are not processed.

    Does not separate from the main tooth, does not fall out

    As long as there are no severe impacts, it is not possible for the veneer to fall off as it is adhered with a special medical adhesive.

    Pain is usually not felt during tooth cleaning and veneering procedures. However, there may be patients with a low pain threshold, and there may be people whose anxiety and fears become evident during dental treatments. In this regard, the area to be covered is usually anesthetized and the patient does not feel pain during the application.

    Tooth surface is cleaned

    In the first stage, the dentist removes the plaque layer on the tooth or teeth to be veneered and cleans the surface. The surface of the tooth is etched in 03-06 mm thickness.

    Digital imaging and laboratory work is done

    Digital imaging of the teeth to be veneered is done. The patient's expectations, tooth color and smile line are evaluated as a whole. Imaging recordings are sent to the laboratory for veneers to be made. The covering process in the laboratory takes approximately 2-3 days.

    Temporary veneer is attached to the patient

    Temporary porcelain dental veneers are attached to prevent damage to the cleaned teeth during laboratory studies. The patient, who is waiting for the permanent leaf porcelain to arrive, does not feel any discomfort in this process.

    Dental veneer teeth is attached to the patient

In order to prolong the life of the veneer, it is necessary to pay attention to the criteria listed above. The presence of gum diseases can also reduce this period. In cases where oral, dental and gingival care is not taken care of, the life of the veneer may decrease to 5-10 years.

    How many sessions does the laminate veneer process take?

    In case of gum disease, the disease in the gum should be treated first, before the laminate veneer. This process before dental veneer will increase the number of sessions.

In the first session, the surface to be bonded is cleaned and thinned.
