Patient undergoing teeth whitening treatment at Hurma Dental Clinic

Your teeth build your self-confidence. Stained, yellowed, cracked, and broken teeth can damage this trust. In addition, we may experience various losses in our teeth over time. These losses you experience in your teeth may not be caused by the loss of the tooth itself but may be caused by the losses in its main structure. At work, we may need to have our teeth veneered due to both aesthetic concerns and losses in our teeth. One of the dental veneer methods is Porcelain tooth veneer. As the name suggests, the veneer is produced from Porcelain. With this procedure, mouth functions can be fully fulfilled. It is one of the most preferred procedure methods, biocompatible, durable, and light transmittin

What are the advantages of having a Porcelain Veneer?

In general terms, it will be seen that the Porcelain tooth procedure procedure is more advantageous than other options. First, Porcelain is a durable material, which is the most important advantage of Porcelain procedure. It has high resistance against light impacts, and it is low cost. Veneers are made meticulously to ensure that your teeth are long-lasting.

There is no problem when using functions such as biting and chewing. It can meet all expectations in terms of aesthetics.

Porcelain Veneer procedure makes it easier to have an aesthetic smile. It requires short-term treatment. With the procedure, our patients do not stay away from their work and daily lives for long.

It is made from tooth-colored Porcelain to blend veneers seamlessly with natural teeth. This not only strengthens your teeth but also gives you an aesthetic smile.

On which teeth is Porcelain Veneer applied?

Although the aesthetic aspect predominates, the most important reasons are the compensation for caries and tooth loss. The cavity formed in the tooth after tooth loss reduces the person’s quality of life and causes eating problems. This method, besides compensating for tooth loss, provides an aesthetic smile by eliminating deformities in the teeth. We can list the situations where Porcelain Veneer can be applied as follows;


Repair of broken teeth,

Compensation for missing teeth,

Elimination of structural tooth disorders,

Closing the spaces between teeth,

Correction of teeth that look different from other teeth,

Equalizing the size of small teeth with other teeth,

Bleaching of teeth that cannot be whitened with the whitening process,

Treatment of bruises that cannot be completed with normal filling,

To eliminate the above situations, you can safely have Porcelain tooth procedure.

After examining our dentists, we decide with our patients what kind of veneer we will use in Porcelain Veneer and how the procedures will be performed.

Who can not apply Porcelain Veneer?

This method, which can be applied to everyone in general, is not applied to those who have the following types of ailments. These ailments are:

Those who have jaw disorder problems,

Those who have pen biting and nail-biting habits,

Those who have advanced gum recession problems

This procedure is not made.

How is Porcelain Veneer made?

We first start the practice with the oral and dental examination of our patients by our dentists. During the examination, caries in the mouth, deformities, and gum problems are detected. The color and shape of the procedures to be applied to the patient are determined together with our patient.

The second stage starts with a deep cleaning of the surfaces of the teeth. Our dentists remove a thin layer of plaque from the teeth to be Porcelain Veneered. This layer differs according to the patient’s needs and what kind of Porcelain Veneer he will have. If there is no extra problem, a 0.5 – 0.7 mm layer is removed. In most cases, this procedure is so short and simple that it can be performed without anesthesia.

After the completion of the second stage, it is time to take the measurements of the teeth to be coated with Porcelain teeth. Our dentists precisely measure your teeth and mold your teeth. Your molds and mouth measurements are sent to laboratories specialized in this field, and Porcelain Veneers are produced according to the desired dimensions. If our patient has gingival problems, caries, and deformities, they are treated before the veneer is applied.

The process of producing the desired veneer teeth and the completion of the rehearsals generally take 10-14 days. During this time, our dentists put temporary veneers on our patients so that our patients do not suffer.

After the permanent Porcelain procedures arrive, the fourth stage is started. This stage is the bonding stage of Porcelain Veneers. With specially prepared Porcelain tooth veneer adhesives, the bonding of the veneers to the tooth surfaces is started. Where necessary, rasping and reshaping processes are performed on the veneers, and they are made most suitable for the mouth and teeth structure of our patients. With the completion of the processes, the procedure process is terminated.

What are the types of Porcelain Veneers?

A Porcelain Veneer is divided into four groups according to the type of material used;

Porcelain laminated tooth veneer: It is a type of leaf veneer made entirely of Porcelain.

Full ceramic empress dental veneer: It is an procedure with a compressed personnel base and a ceramic procedure on the top. We can also express it as ceramic cladding on Porcelain.

Porcelain tooth procedure with metal infrastructure: It is the procedure of Porcelain procedure on metal infrastructure.

Porcelain tooth veneer with zirconium substructure: It is a veneer method made with Porcelain on the zirconium substructure.

It is divided into three groups according to the position of the tooth to be veneered;

Full Porcelain Dental Veneer: It is a type of veneer that completely covers the teeth from front to back.

Porcelain Veneer for anterior teeth: It is a veneer method applied more regionally (on the front teeth) with aesthetic concern.

Single tooth Porcelain Veneer: It is a veneer method applied to a single tooth damaged for any reason.

What should be considered after Porcelain Veneer?

After Porcelain Dental Veneer, you do not expect a heavy recovery period. Our patients can continue their lives from where they left off and return to work the next day. Post-procedure pain is almost non-existent. In cases where the pain is felt, pain relievers recommended by our physicians can be used.

After the treatment, our patients should be careful not to consume excessively hot and cold foods and drinks for about a week. Hard and sticky foods that are difficult to chew should also be avoided.

As with natural teeth, there may be yellowing and deterioration in Porcelain Veneers. The important thing here is to perform proper and proper oral and dental care. Teeth should be brushed regularly, the floss should be used, and oral hygiene should be provided with mouthwash after each tooth brushing.

If your Porcelain tooth breaks, cracks, or becomes dislodged, consult your dentist about the broken piece. If it is possible to repair, it will be repaired by your dentist; otherwise, it will be replaced with a new procedure. If the Porcelain Veneers come off or break, there is no pain or ache.

We perform Laminated teeth procedure in 7 stages;

Clinical evaluation

Tooth preparation

Measurement and modeling

Insertion of temporary teeth

Preparation of tooth leaves


Bonding of tooth leaves

Now let’s see these procedures in detail;

Clinical evaluation

Our first examination will be on whether there is a problem in the teeth and gums because we cannot make this procedure for our patients who have these problems. First of all, these ailments need to be treated, and if there is such a problem, we proceed to the veneer procedure after the treatments are completed.

Our dentists and the patient determine which teeth will be veneered and start the procedure. In the meantime, the type of model to be applied is determined together with the patient. Our physicians prefer to determine a model compatible with our patients’ faces.

Tooth preparation

After the teeth to be veneered are determined, the required reduction (rasping) process is started. First, we apply local anesthesia to our patient so that he does not feel pain during the procedure. Depending on the need, a rasping in the range of 0.4-0.7 mm is provided on the tooth. This filing is done on the front and upper surfaces of the teeth where the laminate will come.

Measurement and modeling

After the preparation process, lower and upper jaw measurements are taken precisely. Our dentists send the jaw and tooth measurements to the dental laboratory. The models produced in the laboratory are tested on the patient, and it is checked whether there is a compliance problem. After a consensus is reached, porcelain laminates are produced in the laboratory.

Installing Temporary Laminate

There will be hot and cold sensitivity in the filed teeth. The patient will not be comfortable at this point, and he may have trouble eating and drinking. For this reason, we install temporary Laminate.

Preparation of tooth leaves

After our tooth leaves are prepared in the laboratory, under the most suitable conditions and using the best materials, they are shown to our patients, and their approval is obtained. This is a method that increases physician-patient trust.


After our patient approves our laminates, a rehearsal is done with temporary bonding. If no negativity is encountered during the rehearsal and the patient is satisfied with the general appearance, we move on to the last part of our practice.

Bonding of tooth leaves

Laminates, which the patient likes, are bonded to the teeth with a special adhesive. The hardest part of this procedure is sticking the Laminates. Adhered Laminates will not be removed from their places again. Therefore, the job here is left to the experience and skill of the physician. Our clinic specialist dentists are experienced and skilled in this business. They will give you a wonderful smile.

What should be considered after Laminated teeth?

How long do laminate veneers last?

Laminate veneers (also referred to as dental or porcelain veneers) are custom-crafted thin shells designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth. A common concern when considering laminate veneers is determining their lifespan – one such concern being “how long will my laminate veneers last?”. While the lifespan of laminate veneers varies based on individual factors like oral hygiene practices and lifestyle habits, on average they last between 10-15 years with proper care and maintenance.

Regular dental check-ups, diligent oral hygiene routines and refraining from engaging in habits such as teeth grinding and chewing on hard objects are key components to prolonging the lifespan of laminate veneers. Consulting a dental professional for advice and maintenance tips to preserve them for as long as possible is recommended to help extend their longevity.
