Today, dental veneers are aesthetic dentistry applications that include more than one treatment method that deals with the restoration arrangements and aesthetic roughness of the person’s tooth and mouth structure. Dental veneer applications are the most effective treatment methods that deal with deep caries, fractures, color problems and congenital or acquired disorders in the oral structure.
The most important factor to be considered in aesthetic dentistry and tooth coating treatments is naturalness. The person or people who have dental veneer treatments gain self-confidence and aesthetics.
In recent years, dental veneers types have gained serious popularity with aesthetic dentistry and aesthetic smile design. In the past, in the treatment methods applied by dentists, metal-supported porcelain veneer method was mostly used. However, today, with the advancement of technology, aesthetic and more useful dental veneers are developed and applied. Types of dental veneers are listed as follows:
- Metal Backed Porcelain Veneer
- Porcelain Dental Veneer with Zirconium Substructure
- Porcelain Leaf Laminate Tooth Veneer
- Full Ceramic E-Max Dental Veneer
Dental Veneer treatments;
- Having white and aesthetic teeth
- For teeth that have lost or lost their congenital aesthetic functions to regain these functions.
- In the recovery of broken or decayed teeth
- Gaining an aesthetic appearance by covering the implants in implant treatments.
Metal Supported Porcelain Veneers
In the Metal-supported porcelain tooth veneer treatment method, a metal infrastructure is created with the measurement taken from the tooth. If the tooth size taken from the patient to be treated is compatible with the metal infrastructure, the tooth shape is created with special materials by the technician who will make the infrastructure. If the porcelain checked at the proofing stage does not cause any problems, the porcelain veneer is sent to the laboratory to be polished. After porcelain is polished, it is made ready for use. Metal-supported porcelain veneers are less preferred in the fields of aesthetic dentistry and smile design than in the past and other treatment methods.
Porcelain Dental Veneer with Zirconium Infrastructure / Zirconium Veneer
Zirconium veneer consists of a more durable element structure compared to Metal-supported porcelain veneers, although its infrastructure is very close to the metal infrastructure. Its difference from the metal infrastructure is that it has color scales that are very close to the natural tooth color. In addition, the most useful and durable treatment method in tooth deficiencies and bridge applications is zirconium veneer.
With the development of technology, the zirconium veneer treatment method not only has the color scales closest to the natural tooth, but also does not change the sense of taste, is more compatible with the natural tooth, does not form the gray reflection that occurs in the teeth with metal infrastructure, has teeth that are more resistant to hot and cold sensitivity, effective in choosing the method.
Porcelain Leaf Laminated Tooth Veneer / Laminated Veneer
Porcelain leaf laminated tooth veneer method is a dental veneer treatment method that prioritizes aesthetics and smile with a minimally deformation of the tooth tissue. In general, it is among the most used treatments in smile design applications, and it is applied in yellowing of teeth, fractures and cracks caused by neglect and external factors over time.
The porcelain leaf laminated tooth veneer treatment method, which is applied to individuals of all ages who have completed their jawbone development, is not applied to the person or people who make habits such as pencil eating and nail biting and who have advanced gum recession problems.
Porcelain laminate veneers are made to be used by taking the size of the person’s teeth and sticking the porcelain laminates designed in the clinical and laboratory environment to the front surfaces of the person’s teeth. Thus, tooth adaptation is ensured.
Full Ceramic E-Max Dental Veneer / E-Max (Empress) Dental Veneer
With the development of technology day by day in terms of aesthetics and dental health, more advanced dental veneer methods that protect dental health are emerging. Your teeth are among the factors that increase your quality of life as much as your smile. People who experience deformation, wear and breakage in their teeth prefer to hide their smiles. One of the most effective methods for people who have this problem is the full ceramic e-max tooth veneer method.
In general, they are preferred in cases where a single tooth veneer or short bridge should be used in anterior group teeth where aesthetics is considered in terms of appearance.
With the development of aesthetic dentistry and dental veneer methods, e-max veneer is generally applied for incisors located in the front. This method is mostly used for aesthetic purposes, not for health reasons. The full ceramic e-max dental veneer treatment method, which is used for people who have a disorder in the anterior teeth alignment, is not preferred for welded posterior canines, as it is not durable.
