The Ultimate Guide to Veneers in Izmir

Last fact-checked: 19 February 2020

Change your smile for the better with dental veneers in Izmir , Turkey. If you’ve always dreamed of showing off a set of straight, white teeth when you smile, then you can do it simply and cost-effectively with this treatment, saving over 80% on the prices at home.

Dental veneers are a quick-fix cosmetic dentistry treatment that transforms the look of your teeth. Broken, discoloured, misshapen or just ugly teeth can be changed for the better. Even a row of crooked teeth can be remodeled to reveal a straight, white smile without having to endure years of discomfort that ordinarily only orthodontic treatment would be able to achieve.

Why Go for Veneers?

Whether right or wrong, having an attractive smile is almost as important to many people these days as their dental health. While it’s true that good dental health will generally benefit the cosmetic appearance of your teeth, some things are outside our control.

Not many of us are born with a perfect set of teeth. In many cases, if there is an aspect of our teeth we don’t like, we choose to hide the imperfection—either by covering our mouths when we smile or just smiling less

Dental veneers can change all that—and the procedure couldn’t be simpler. A veneer is just a thin shell of hard-wearing material attached to the front of your tooth (or teeth when having multiple at the same time). It can cover a multitude of sins, hiding whatever is behind it and presenting the perfect tooth to the world.

One of the major plus points of dental veneers is that a row of four, six or eight veneers can be placed (essentially over the teeth that show when you smile), giving you the perfect “Hollywood Smile” in one day, rather than having to wear braces for years. In fact, many Hollywood stars do have this treatment and it really is difficult to tell whether their teeth are real or not, unless you see old photos pre-treatment and see just what a difference their veneers have made.

Are Dental Veneers for Me?

It’s important to remember that dental veneers are purely a cosmetic treatment, having no bearing on fixing any dental health problems. It’s also important that you fully look into the veneers treatment and what it entails so you can decide whether it is for you, and your expectations of the treatment.

You must have good oral and dental health beforehand. It’s no good wallpapering over a crumbling wall that needs plastering, and the same goes for veneers. If the underlying tooth is not stable, then your veneers won’t last. Also, dental health problems, such as tooth decay, aren’t going anywhere just because you have a veneer fitted. In fact, it will only get worse, compromising your tooth—and the veneer.

The harsh takeaway from this is simple: make sure your dental health is in order before you even consider dental veneers.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Veneers?

The dental veneers procedure typically takes two visits to the dentist. During the first visit, the dentist will examine your mouth thoroughly and go through your medical and dental history. If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), this may be a problem as the constant back and forth motion of your grinding teeth could weaken the veneers, causing them to break or fall off.

If you are deemed suitable for the procedure, the treatment can be broken down as follows:

  1. Treatment Planning and Tooth Preparation: You will discover a choice of materials for your veneers —some more expensive than others—which the dentist will talk you through. Once you have decided on the material, your teeth will be prepared to receive the veneers. This involves removing a sliver of enamel from the front of your teeth, which essentially creates a space for the veneer to be placed so that it is flush with the rest of your teeth. After the teeth have been prepared, the dentist will take impressions of your mouth to send to the laboratory where your veneers are custom-made to fit.
  1. Affixing Veneers: After a few days, your dentist will receive your veneers back from the laboratory and you can go back to the dentist to have them fitted. After placing the veneers to ensure they fit, the teeth will be etched slightly, providing a rough surface to enable a stronger bond. A light-activated adhesive is applied, the veneers placed and, once the light has activated the adhesive, the veneers should be fixed firmly to your teeth.

CAD/CAM

Some of our clinics in Turkey offer CAD/CAM (computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacture) dentistry meaning that it is possible to receive your veneers in just one day.

CAD/CAM uses the newest digital technology to create a mockup of your mouth on a computer screen. Your veneers are designed on the screen in front of you, and the dentist or technician is able to adjust the size, colour and shape so you can see exactly how they look. Once you are happy, the images are sent to an on-site laboratory where a computer-controlled milling machine makes the veneers to the exact specifications. Once complete, the dentist attaches them to your teeth and you are then free to walk out flashing that new, dazzling smile.
