Exploring Laminate Veneers: A Comprehensive Overview

What is a dental veneer?

The dental veneer is an extremely thin (about half a mm) prosthesis placed on the front teeth, which allows the correction of primarily aesthetic problems, as well as small tooth deficits and minor injuries. As the shell does not cover all the surfaces of the tooth, only the front surface, the tooth requires minimal preparation (filing) during preparation.

The second session, dedicated to dental refinement, lasts 1 to 1.5 hours, depending upon the number of veneers. After local anesthesia, a half millimeter reduction is performed on each tooth. An impression is then made and the laminates are ready usually within a week.

The final phase, the cementing, takes around two hours. Initially, porcelain laminates rest on your teeth for a full assessment of color and shape. Customizable cement color allows for adjustments. Once perfection is achieved, the laminates are fixed with cements, revealing your new smile.

Who are recommended for veneers?

If your teeth are healthy but you are not satisfied with their appearance or they have minor injuries or discoloration.

Dental veneer is the solution for you:

  • If you are not satisfied with the shape of your teeth.
  • If there is a small gap between your first teeth.
  • If your teeth have become discolored due to lifestyle habits or previous medication in such a way that teeth can no longer be treated by teeth whitening.
  • If your root-treated teeth are discolored.
  • If your front teeth are damaged.
  • If enamel defects can be detected on your teeth.
  • If you find your teeth too small, too short.
  • If, due to minor formal defects, positional abnormalities, your teeth need aesthetic correction, which does not require orthodontic treatment.
  • If you want a younger, fresher smile.

Considerations for Laminate Veneers: Navigating Potential Drawbacks

While Laminate Veneers offer unparalleled advantages, it is crucial to be aware of certain considerations:


  • Precision Requirements: Attaining flawless results necessitates meticulous laboratory and clinical work, ensuring a seamless transformation.
  • Addressing Bruxism: Inform your dentist if you have a tendency to clench or grind your teeth (bruxism) for a personalized approach.
  • Temporary Sensitivity: Normal and reversible sensitivity to hot and cold sensations may occur immediately after cementation.
  • Caution with Hard Foods: Despite robust cementation and abrasion resistance, it is advised to refrain from biting into hard foods to safeguard the integrity of your laminates and ensure their longevity.
  • Rely on the expertise of Smiles Turkey to sculpt your perfect smile with Laminate Veneers—a harmonious blend of precision, professionalism, and enduring results.
