Dental Veneers

What is dental veneer?

It is a method used to treat dental diseases such as fractured, worn and dysfunctional teeth. Dental veneers, which are applied in times of tooth loss, serve two purposes as aesthetic or functional. Dental crown treatment, which is one of the most common applications of prosthodontics, can also be applied to missing teeth with dental bridge application.

How are dental veneers performed?

Dental veneer is a dental treatment method that can be completed in 2 or 3 sessions. After deciding on the veneer material and type to be applied to the damaged tooth, an impression of the tooth or teeth to be veneered is taken. After the impression, the relevant tooth is cleaned. The prepared dental molds are attached to the tooth and the patient is given an appointment for the next session to get used to the dental mold. In the last session, the dental crown application is completed.
