What is Dental Veneers? What is Porcelain Teeth?

Porcelain Veneer Teeth Turkey

Porcelain veneer is the process of veneer the tooth surface for therapeutic purposes or to increase aesthetic beauty. Since the material used in this dental veneer method is a material with high light transmittance, it is perfect for those who dream of an aesthetic smile. With porcelain tooth veneer, color differences in teeth can be eliminated, crowding that is not at the orthodontic level can be corrected with porcelain tooth veneer.

The teeth can be adjusted in a natural tooth color that is compatible with the skin color of the person or in a lighter whiteness upon request. Thus, individuals can have beautiful smiles without losing almost anything from their dental functions (chewing, speaking…). They are very durable products with very high biocompatibility.

The veneers are fixed to the tooth with special veneer dental adhesives that are applied to the tooth surface to be porcelain veneered. Thanks to these veneers, the underlying tooth becomes stronger and more resistant to decay since it does not come into direct contact with food.
