Whether your teeth have decayed or they are uneven, dental porcelain veneers have been proven to be a reliable way that can quickly help you get the smile appearance you want.

Well, I won’t keep you waiting with a cliffhanger: if you’re interested in learning much about dental veneers, keep reading.

What are Dental Veneers?

Also known as instant orthodontics, dental veneers are customizable shells of teeth that can correct chips, stains, and even deeply discolored teeth giving one a beautiful smile. Dental veneers as a procedure that masks the visible dental surface of the tooth and it provides a highly conservative approach to esthetic smile makeovers.

While veneers provide a conservative way to repair damaged teeth, the procedure has to be performed by an expert dentist, and this is why we always recommend Istanbul Dental Center. There are a few types of dental veneers. Each has distinct features knowing them will guide you to determine which veneer suits you:

Composite Veneers: this type of veneers is the most commonly used treatment. It is not as natural looking as porcelain. Composite veneer treatment requires significantly less time. Hence veneers are sculpted and applied during your appointment. It is a popular choice to improve minor chips, cracks, and gaps between teeth.

Removal Veneers: As the name suggests, they are veneers that allow you to remove them and place them back on your own accord. These veneers will enable you to remove them and clean them as you take them off. Removal veneers can cover the existing tooth flaws and attain the desired aesthetic appearance.

Porcelain Veneers: this type of veneer is considered the highest quality among the other types, it is resistant to stains, discoloration mimics the properties of the natural-looking tooth, and the results are almost always satisfactory.

Instant Veneers: this type of veneer is pre-made and ready to be applied to your tooth. Similar to buying a pair of glasses frame and waiting to install your preferred lens. The dentist will apply minimal alterations to the veneer to better fit your tooth. Similar to composite veneers, they only require a single appointment to be installed.

What Problems Do Veneers Connect?

The purpose of veneers is usually cosmetic, but it may also be preferred as part of an overall dental makeover that includes treatment for gum disease. Here are 6 common oral issues that can be corrected with veneers:

  • Gaps between teeth.
  • Chips and worn areas.
  • Permanent stains.
  • Uneven, misshapen teeth.
  • Slightly crooked teeth.
  • Tooth sensitivity.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the price of Veneers treatment varies from one location to another but is estimated to cost around $1300 per tooth. Research shows it costs cheaper in locations popular with medical tourism such as Turkey.

In Turkey, dental treatments like veneers, dental implants, dentures, and crowns are performed at a lower cost This is one of the reasons why thousands of medical tourists visit Turkey every month for dental procedures.

Having a dental veneer procedure in Turkey will help you save up to 80% of the amount you'd have used for the same treatment in the United States and the United Kingdom. In the US, you are more likely to spend between $925 to $2,500 for a dental veneer procedure. But for that same treatment in Turkey, you can fork out something between €85 and €150.

How Long Does Veneers Last?

Although they are made of cemented dental materials, veneers are destructible. This simply means that their longevity depends heavily upon how you care for them. You should care for them as much as you care for your natural teeth, and you'll be able to extend their wear.

According to  1-800-Dentist, veneers should last between 10 and 15 years with proper care. Depending on the type of wear or damage they incur, veneers may need cosmetic repair or full replacement. It's up to the wearer to protect them to increase their lifespan.
