Dental Veneers in Turkey - Overview

A dental veneer is an aesthetic dental restoration type which is made of a thin layer of glass ceramic that covers only the visible surfaces of the tooth. They are indirect restorations which are prepared in an internal or external dental laboratory and used for aesthetic purposes. Laminate veneers are not suitable for high load bearing areas such as molar teeth.

Laminate Veneers can be used to restore/improve aesthetics of;

•Discoloured & Stained Teeth
•Decayed tooth
•Chipped tooth
•Teeth with gaps (diastema)

In Esdent Dental Centre Turkey, Laminate veneers are prepared within 24 hours with 3D Design and milling devices. We ask our patients to stay for an extra day for control appointment before travelling back to their country. Therefore, 3 days in total are required for dental laminate veneers in our clinic.

Advantages of Dental Veneers:

•They require minimal teeth preparation. Therefore, less healthy tooth tissue is removed compared to full veneers or dental crowns.
•They are prepared in a single day with 3D design and milling devices.
•Laminate veneers provide highly aesthetic results.

Disadvantages of Laminate Veneers:

•Laminate veneers are more prone to debonding and chipping than full veneers or dental crowns.
•They are not suitable for high load bearing areas such as molar teeth.
•Laminate veneers are not suitable for correcting a teeth crowding.
•Not suitable for teeth grinding (Bruxism) patients.

A single dental laminate veneer costs £225 in Esdent Dental Centre Turkey, which is slightly more expensive than Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Crowns. We provide 5 star accommodation and VIP transfers at no extra cost for dental veneer smile makeover packages.

A porcelain veneered zirconia crown is prepared by applying multiple layers of porcelains on top of a zirconia base. In contrast to dental laminate veneers, a Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Crown covers all visible parts of a teeth. They are used in order to restore both aesthetics and function of a tooth and protection. Porcelain Veneered Zirconia is thicker and more durable than laminate veneer. However, it requires more tooth tissue removal than veneers. Porcelain Veneered Zirconia can be used on both front teeth (incisors) and molars.

Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Crowns can be used for;

•Mild to moderate teeth crowding. Orthodontic treatment should be considered before this option.
•Teeth with large and deep caries.
•Teeth which were restored heavily in past.
•Chipped Teeth.
•Diastema closure (Gaps between teeth).

In Esdent Dental Centre Turkey, we complete a full smile makeover (8 upper jaw and 8 lower jaw) made with Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Crowns in 4 days in our in-house 3D design and milling devices. We ask our patients to stay for an extra day for control appointment before travelling back to their country. Therefore, 5 full days in total are required for Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Smile Makeover in our clinic. Depending on the teeth numbers included, the procedure can be completed in shorter durations.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Crowns:

•Provides excellent aesthetics. Our technicians use multiple layers on top of zirconia base to achieve a highly aesthetic and natural result.
•Stronger than laminate veneers. Can be used in short dental bridges to replace teeth.
•Can be used to fix mild to moderate crowding of teeth.
•Provides support to highly damaged tooth.

Disadvantages of Porcelain Veneered Zirconia Crowns:

•Requires extra tooth tissue removal all around the visible part of a tooth.
•Non-reversible procedure.
•Teeth may require root canal treatment especially during the correction of moderate teeth crowding.

A single porcelain veneered zirconia crown costs £195 in Esdent Dental Centre Turkey. We provide free 5 star accommodation and VIP car transfers for smilemakeover packages.

A direct composite veneer is a minimally invasive chair-side procedure which is completed in a single appointment. They are prepared by a dentist who applies multiple layers of composite fillings to the front surface of the tooth. In most of the cases, dentists do not even need to perform any tooth preparation, except applying an acid etch for 20 seconds. There is no dental laboratory involved in direct composite veneers procedure. Composite veneers are suitable for front teeth and should not be used in high load bearing areas.

Direct composite veneers can be used for;

•Diastema Closure
•Straightening very low grade of crowding
•Decayed Teeth
•Fractured teeth

Composite veneer procedure for a single tooth takes approximately 25-30 minutes. Smile makeover with composite bonding for 6 front teeth on a single jaw can be completed in a single appointment of up to 2-3 hours.

Advantages of Direct Composite Veneers:

•No laboratory work. Everything completed chair-side in a single visit.
•Minimally invasive procedure. In most of the cases, acid etching for 20 seconds is enough.
•Reversible procedure.
•If gets chipped, can be easily fixed.
•Cost-effective solution.
•Provides good aesthetics when prepared by an experienced dentist.

Disadvantages of Direct Composite Veneers:

•They are not as strong as porcelain veneers or porcelain veneered zirconia's.
•Direct Composite Veneers should be considered as a live art performance. Therefore, they need to be prepared by an experienced dentist.
•Composite veneers can get stained quicker than porcelain veneers.

Composite bonding is a cost effective procedure for improving the appearance of the front teeth which costs £100 per tooth in Turkey. Even though they are a quick and affordable solution for dental aesthetics, their durability and life-time expectancy should be considered as well.

A dental veneer covers only the front surface of the tooth like a mask whereas dental crowns cover all of the surfaces of a tooth above gum level. Therefore, laminate veneers are less invasive than dental crowns.

From bleaching white to the yellowish tones, there are wide range of tooth shades available to choose from. Many people enquiring us for dental veneers are mainly concerned about the available colour shades in our clinic. We have all shades available in our clinic, including the whitest shades. However, we would like our patients to pay attention to shape of the veneers as well.

We recommend tooth colour shades that do not look fake or unnatural. Of course, the last decision is yours.

Our Cosmetic Dentists complete laminate veneers and all-ceramic crowns within 24 hours. However, we recommend our patients to stay for 1 or 2 extra days for control appointments. Therefore, ideally 4 days in total are enough for dental veneers.

Dental veneer procedures that do not require tooth tissue removal are considered as reversible. It means when we remove your restoration, you can use your original teeth as if no dental veneer was placed. Prepless laminate veneers and composite veneers are reversible procedures.

For veneer packages, we provide 5 star accommodation and private car transfers at no extra cost. This includes the extra days of accommodation for last checks after the completion the treatment.

Dental Veneers in Turkey

In Esdent Dental Centre Turkey we believe that an aesthetic and confident smile should be accessible for everyone. Our team does not only consist of professional and experienced dentists; we have also our full-time in-house dental technicians who works in a great sync with our dentists and produces excellent lab-works after we complete your chairside procedures. Whether your front teeth are crooked, discoloured, decayed, have a rough surface or a gap in-between, dental porcelain veneers in Turkey are the treatment of choice for you.

We complete porcelain veneers in only 24 hours, thanks to Tizian Cut 5 3D Dental Design and Milling Device which makes us a completely independent clinic from external labs.

Dental Veneer PartsA dental porcelain veneer is an artificial tooth that covers the front surface of a tooth like a mask. For those who are wondering what they are made of, the main material is the glass particles mixed with various substances such as lithium disilicate. In contrast to dental crowns, porcelain laminate veneers require minimum amount of tooth surface reduction. Therefore, dentists consider porcelain veneers as one of the least invasive aesthetic dental procedures. Moreover, unlike the traditional porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns, porcelain veneers do not have a black metal base. This makes them look much more natural and aesthetic.

We produce porcelain veneers in both digital (Cad Cam method) and non-digital (Press method) environment. Whatever method we use to prepare your porcelain veneers, we will perform a minimal invasive tooth preparation prior to the lab work.

Dental Veneers Appointment Sequence

In Esdent Dental Centre Turkey, we complete dental veneers in 3 appointments within 24 hours.
1- Tooth Preparation Stage: Our dentists perform a minimal tooth preparation on the tooth surface for porcelain veneers. We use local anaesthetic when necessary. Dental impression taking follows this step.
2- Mock-Up Stage: We will temporarily cement the plastic prototypes of your permanent veneers to your teeth and evaluate their look with you. We will make the adjustments at this stage as you desire.
3- Permanent Cementation Stage: After the mock-up stage, our lab will prepare the actual veneers. Once they are ready, our dentists will cement them to the front surface of your teeth permanently.

Tooth Preparation for Dental Veneers

Tooth Preparation for Laminate VeneersIn this Stage, your dentists will prepare your tooth surface for the veneers. A crown of tooth has three parts; enamel, dentin and pulp. Enamel is the outmost layer of a tooth crown. For all-ceramic veneers, it is essential to keep the preparation within the borders of enamel.

Dental veneers preparation can be done with or without local anaesthesia. Although patients usually ask for local anaesthesia, we have experienced that it is unnecessary in most of the cases.

Once we are ready to begin the procedure, our dentists start with opening two 0.5mm depth guide grooves on your teeth followed by marking these grooves with a lead pencil to prevent over reduction on tooth surface. And then the main tooth reduction stage starts. In this stage, our dentists will reduce the font surface of your teeth until these two guide grooves marge smoothly. This method allows us to keep the porcelain veneer preparation borders within the enamel layer. After that, we perform a smooth reduction of the other front surfaces of your teeth. A single porcelain veneer preparation takes approximately 10 minutes.

A dental veneer preparation for 6 of your front teeth takes approximately 90 minutes including the dental impression.

Veneer preparations that extend to dentin layer of the tooth are more prone to de-bonding. Moreover, too thick or too thin veneers have a higher risk of fracture. Therefore, dental veneers should be prepared by expert dentists and technicians with the appropriate methods. This is especially important for patients who are travelling to Turkey from other countries for dental veneers.

Dental Veneer Preparation Techniques in Esdent Dental Centre Turkey

Dental Veneers Preparation - CAD CAM Technique

Once our dentists prepare your tooth surface for dental veneers, we transfer your dental impression to our in-house dental laboratory. Then, our expert dental technicians will start designing your new teeth on digital environment. You are more than welcome to give your opinions about the real-time design of your new teeth on the screen.

Once the procedure is complete, we will produce a prototype of the end product from a plastic block (PMMA Blocks) in order to demonstrate how the end product dental veneers will look. At this stage, we will cement your veneer prototypes with a temporary material and leave you alone with your reflection on a mirror for a while. We can perform any adjustments on this plastic prototype to achieve the perfect look of your dental veneers. After that, we transfer the adjustments on your digital design on our 3D software and produce the real porcelain veneers from E.max blocks, followed by permanent cementation to your teeth.

Dental Veneers Preparation - Press Technique

Emax Press Laminate Veneers for 4 front teethIt is quite similar process with the Cad Cam technique except that the actual veneer will be prepared with a press machine. Once our dentists complete your tooth preparation, your impressions will be transferred to our in-house dental laboratory. Our technicians prepare a wax-up of your teeth on our in-house Cad/Cam devices for mock-up stage. Once your wax-up is ready, we transfer it to your mouth with temporary restoration materials to evaluate the design. This Mock-up stage is followed by the production of the actual dental veneers in a press furnace.

Types of Dental Veneers

There are three types of Laminate Veneers; Porcelain, Direct Composite and Indirect Composite. 

Porcelain Dental Laminate Veneers

Following the tooth preparation and impression in the first appointment, the porcelain veneer can be completed within 24 hours. E-max veneers are the most reputable dental veneer materials that are prepared on CAD/CAM devices within hours.

Direct Composite Veneers (Composite Bonding)

Direct Composite Veneers in Esdent Dental Centre TurkeyDentists can complete Direct Composite Veneers in a single appointment within 2 hours. For composite veneers, dentists apply multiple layers and colours of dental composite to the tooth surface and cure it with a light. Therefore, the result is very quick compared to other dental veneer options.

Indirect Composite Veneers

In this method, dentist takes impression of the teeth after minimal preparation and then completes the restoration on a model which is a copy of the patient’s teeth. Once the restoration on the model is ready, dentists transfer it to patients mouth with bonding adhesives.

Dentists use dental veneers to cover tooth discolourations, tooth shape anomalies, closing the gaps, straightening teeth and whitening. They require minimal tooth preparation on the tooth surface and also provide excellent aesthetic results. The treatment usually takes only a single day with the use of latest technology CAD/CAM devices.

Despite the aforementioned advantages, dental veneers are less durable than Porcelain Fused to Zirconia (PFZ) or Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) crowns. Moreover, because of the minimal preparation and the thin form, their bonding force is not as strong as dental crowns. Therefore, veneers are more likely to de-bond after using them for a while.

Advantages & Disadvantages of Veneers

Laminate veneers are one of the most contemporary and conservative dental treatment approach for those who are concerned about the appearance of their teeth. They provide excellent aesthetics with the least amount of tooth removal. Moreover they are highly bio-compatible which means they don't irritate gums as much as other dental prosthetics materials such as PFM Crowns or Acrylic Dentures. However, they have some disadvantages too. Now, lets go through the advantages and disadvantages of Laminate Veneers:

Advantages of Laminate Veneers

  • Excellent aesthetic results.
  • Conservative approach; requires minimal tooth preparation.
  • Short treatment duration. E-max or composite veneers can be completed in one day.
  • Non-allergic.
  • Can be done without tooth tissue removal. Therefore, reversible.

Disadvantages of Dental Veneers

  • De-bonds (comes off) easier than crowns.
  • Low durability. Veneers can fracture easily if used on high load bearing teeth such as molars.
  • They are more expensive than other aesthetic options.
  • Not suitable for high load bearing ares.

Dental Veneer Costs in Turkey

According to the NHS, dental veneers are cosmetic procedures. Patients can get veneers by NHS only when it is found clinically necessary. Therefore, it is very rare to get veneers by NHS. They are in Band 3 treatment category, which costs £269.30 in 2019. Even if you are already receiving treatment under NHS scheme, you can not get veneers for aesthetic reasons.

When it comes to the private clinics in the UK, veneers can get a bit expensive to afford. Price of a single porcelain veneer starts from £500 and may go up to £1000 or more. Contrarily, dental laminate veneers in Turkey cost between £225 and £300 per veneer.

Dental Veneer Costs in Turkey Compared to the UK

Let's assume that you are having 8 veneers to your top jaw to achieve a better smile. This procedure could cost approximately £5500 in the UK, which is a bit expensive for most of the patients. In the meanwhile, the same treatment of 8 veneers could cost approximately £2000 in Turkey.

In Esdent Dental Centre, from porcelain veneers to zirconia crowns, custom implant abutments to full mouth bridges, our expert dental technicians who works in a great sync with our dentists produce any restoration within our premises. Therefore, we have no need to use any external dental laboratory. After bypassing external dental lab expenses, we are able to offer high quality dental veneers at highly competitive costs. Moreover, our prices include 5* Hotel and VIP car transfers between airport, hotel and the clinic.

Dental Veneer Brands Available in Esdent

We use only the dental products that have proven themselves with long-term results in our clinic. There are dozens of dental veneer brands to talk about. However, instead of giving you rubbish information about loads of brand names that no one really uses and confuse you, we will explain our gold standard dental veneer materials shortly.

E.Max CAD Ceramic Veneer Blocks

IPS Emax CAD is a highly aesthetic and durable all-ceramic dental veneer material which is made of lithium disilicate glass-ceramics. They are produced to manufacture dental veneers and dental crowns on CAD/CAM devices.

In addition to independent studies, Ivoclar has published their own scientific report of E.Max CAD dental veneer blocks.

E.Max Press Dental Veneer Blocks

E.Max press is our gold standard dental veneer material. In this method, the dental veneers are made of pressure casting procedure, which gives them more flexural strength and fracture toughness compared to the E.Max Cad blocks. Instead of preparing the porcelain itself directly on the milling devices, we prepare the wax-up on the Cad Cam machine. After the try-in appointment, highly aesthetic and durable veneer will be pressure-casted in our laboratory within 1 day.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Veneers in Turkey

How long do I need to stay in Turkey for veneers?

Dental veneers are completed in our in-house dental laboratory within only 48 hours. We advice patients to stay for an extra day for last checks before they travel back to their country.

Do you provide free accommodation and VIP transfers?

Yes. Our international patients travelling to Esdent Malatya benefit from free 5 Star Accommodation in the best hotel of the city and private car transfers between airport,hotel and clinic.

How many veneers should I get for a smile makeover procedure?

Our dentists consider two things when preparing a treatment plan for smile makeover; number of visible teeth and their condition. Dental treatment plans should be custom-made for each individual. Even though we try to avoid generalised treatment packages, we understand that this is a common question. If we were to generalize the dental veneer packages, the options may include 6, 8 or 10 veneers for front teeth depending on the patient's mouth. Please contact us for a free quotation.

How much do dental veneers cost in Turkey?

Dental veneer prices in Turkey start from £200 and may go up to £400 per tooth. Single Jaw smile makeover packages with 10 E.max veneers on a single jaw costs £2250 in Esdent. Zirconia crowns are cheaper alternatives of Laminate veneers that provide excellent aesthetics at £195 per tooth.

Do I need X-rays for dental veneers treatment planning and quotation?

Dental veneers are aesthetic procedures. In most of the times, pictures of teeth are enough to prepare an accurate treatment plan for veneers. However, patient who have teeth with large cavities or advanced periodontal diseases, we may ask for x-rays. This way, we will be able to prepare an accurate treatment plan and prevent any possible inconvenience after travelling all the way to Turkey. To find out if we need x-rays, send us pictures of your teeth taken from different angles.

Do dental veneers damage teeth?

Veneers require minimal tooth preparation. Limits of tooth reduction remain within the enamel layer. Therefore, veneers are more conservative than dental crowns. However, patients must acknowledge that tooth tissue reduction is a non-reversible procedure.

Depending on the position of teeth, it is possible to get prepless veneers which require no tooth tissue removal. Prepless veneers are totally reversible procedures. However, they have a higher risk of debonding and chipping.

Are veneers good for crooked teeth? What about Orthodontics?

Even though dental veneers provide a quick and effective solution for misaligned teeth, the first choice of treatment should be orthodontic treatment. If crowding is the only problem with your teeth and you dont have any problems with their shape, veneers can be a little bit unnecessary. However, orthodontic route requires a little bit of patience. Since orthodontics require multiple visits to the dentist, we recommend patients to have this procedure in their home-country.

My teeth are extensively crooked. Can I improve their look with Laminate Veneers?

If patients do not want orthodontics, teeth with mild to moderate crowding can be straightened with laminate veneers. However, extesive crowding can not be treated with laminate veneers. Patients may need to have orthodontic treatment prior to laminate veneers or zirconia dental crowns which will require tooth tissue reduction on all surfaces.

How long do dental veneers last?

If appropriate oral hygiene is maintained, veneers may last more than 10 years. Dental veneers are under guarantee for 6 years in Esdent Dental Centre Turkey.

How should I maintain oral hygiene after dental veneers?

You should look after your veneers as if they are your natural teeth; brush gently with a soft or medium-bristle tooth brush  with 45 degree's angulation towards the gums, twice a day. Also, flossing will let you clean the areas that a toothbrush can not reach.

Why should I have my Dental Veneers in Esdent Dental Centre?

Esdent is a well established Dental Centre in Turkey which is founded and run by expert dentists since 2007. Our highest priority is to provide international patients with ethical and top-level dental services in our clinic where we take extra care about hygiene. Esdent Dental Centre is equipped with latest technology 3D Design and Milling devices. We prepare veneers, crowns or any other dental restoration within our premises.

Therefore, when patients contact Esdent, they will be communicating directly with our dentists who speak fluent English.

We found out that some dental care providers are employing salespeople with no dental education to provide treatment plans for international patients. In addition to being illegal and un-ethical, this practice also puts patients at high risk.
