dental veneers

Does the appearance of your smile impact your self-confidence? Porcelain veneers are designed to help individuals with dental flaws such as crooked, discolored, or spaced teeth. Veneers dramatically change a person’s smile and, in the process, help improve their self-esteem.

At Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic, our team of dental professionals takes pride in providing our patients with the highest standard of dental care based on a foundation of art, science, experience, and passion. Our cosmetic dentistry services are designed to provide you with the smile you’ve always dreamed of!

What Are Dental Veneers?

A cosmetic dentist may wish to restore your teeth with dental veneers to help you achieve the look you desire. Dental veneers are thin covers that are placed on the front surfaces of teeth to enhance their shape, colour, and size.
If you want to improve your smile, dental veneers are a simple, minimally invasive option that stands the test of time. Veneers are thin coverings that are placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. They look like natural teeth and can be made to match the natural color of your teeth.

Veneers can be used to correct a wide range of dental concerns, including:

  • teeth that are stained and can’t be whitened,
  • chipped or worn teeth,
  • crooked or misshapen teeth,
  • uneven spaces or large gaps between the upper front teeth.

Types of Dental Veneers

Veneers are made of either porcelain or composite resin material. Your dentist will help you choose the material that is best for you. Each type of veneer has its pros and cons.

  1. Porcelain Veneers: A porcelain veneer is a thin shell that is custom-made to fit on the front surface of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are strong and long-lasting. They have a natural-looking surface and require less tooth enamel to be removed than with a crown or cap. Non-porous, porcelain veneers are generally stain resistant, and with proper care, they can last between 10-15 years.
  2. Composite Veneers: A composite resin veneer is made from a tooth-coloured engineered resin material which can be directly bonded to the outer surface of the tooth. Quicker to apply than porcelain veneers, with proper care, they can last up to 8 years. However, composite veneers are more prone to chipping than porcelain veneers, and like regular teeth, they can become stained over time and so will require regular polishing and maintenance.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

Veneers are a great treatment option for adults in Dubai looking to enhance their smile. If you are considering getting porcelain veneers, the following signs indicate you may be an ideal candidate for this simple dental procedure:

  1. You have good overall dental health.
  2. You have plenty of tooth enamel to attach the veneer to.
  3. Your teeth are severely stained and resistant to traditional teeth whitening treatments.
  4. You have minor cosmetic dental concerns, including cracks, chips, misshapen teeth, and/or gaps between teeth.
  5. If you need to treat multiple cosmetic conditions, such as stained teeth, chipped teeth, and cracked teeth – porcelain veneers can treat all three concerns.

Are crowns the same thing as dental veneers?

While dental crowns and veneers are both types of dental restorations that can improve the cosmetic appeal and function of your teeth, crowns and veneers are not the same thing. Dental veneers cover the front surface of the tooth and dental crowns encase the entire tooth. Your dentist will determine whether a crown or veneer best suits your oral health needs.

What Is the Procedure for Dental Veneers?

Getting dental veneers usually requires three trips to the dentist – one for your consultation, one for records taking and preparation of the teeth for the veneers, and one to fit the veneers. You can schedule one tooth or several teeth to undergo the veneering process at one time.

Diagnosis and Treatment

During your initial consultation appointment, your dentist will discuss the goals you are trying to achieve. They will examine your teeth and take x-rays to make sure it is safe to proceed with the treatment. The dentist will also explain all the necessary steps and procedures for your treatment, including preparation, anesthetics (when applicable), and bonding.

Preparation for Dental Veneers

To prepare a tooth for a veneer, your dentist will reshape the tooth surface and then take impressions, bite records and photos. All the records will then be sent to the dental laboratory where a ceramist will analyze the information and construct the veneers accordingly. It can take between 7-10 days for the veneers to be made. During this time, temporary dental veneers will be placed on your teeth whilst you wait for your permanent veneers.

Dental Veneers Bonding

Once your veneers are made, your dentist will try them on your teeth to examine the fit and colour. If the veneers fit well, they will be permanently cemented on your teeth using dental resin cement. This will ensure your veneers are securely attached to your teeth for long-term use. The final steps involve removing any excess cement, checking your bite, and making any needed adjustments. Your dentist may ask you to return for a follow-up visit in a couple of weeks to check your gums and the veneers’ placement.

Client Feedback

Amit Raj

Gum bleeding can be scary. I never had any dental issue before and last week when I had bleeding from my gums. Booked an appointment with Dr Tosun clinic. He was very kind to see me on such a short notice. The clinic is located on road only very easy to find. The staff is very friendly. The Dental Hygienist, Ms Madalyne Tucker, is indeed passionate about educating patients on the importance of maintaining good oral health. I learnt how my brushing technique was wrong and learnt how to do it properly. Then I met Dr Maysoon, who gave me detailed status about my oral health. They have state of the art equipment, devices and experience of more than 50 years combined together. What I really liked about Dr Tosun Dental Clinic is they not only treat the patient but also educate them so that they themselves can take care of their oral health.

Clearly Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic believes in “Prevention is Better Than Cure”. I am very happy with their service and highly recommend it to everyone.

Dr. Yahya Tosun and his team are very professional, experienced and understand the patient psychology well. I had a 10-month long Invisalign treatment and at every step of the way, Dr. Tosun has put the extra mile to achieve the perfect result even if that meant longer treatment plan at no extra cost. He’s approachable and warm, listens to patient’s concerns with all the patience and a smile 🙂

Dr Tosun is an absolute gem!!!! So knowledgeable, incredible at his work the kindest and supportive dentist you could imagine. I can’t recommend him enough. My 7 year old son had a reverse bite and in less than 6 months he has the best smile with his bite the correct way round.

Lina Al Murdaa

I highly recommend Doctor Tosun clinic, I am a very detail-oriented person and I am so happy and satisfied with the treatment I have received. My whole journey at Doctor Tosun clinic was perfect. From hygiene, to the friendly staff and to the highly professional doctors. Doctor Yahya Tosun is an extremely professional orthodontist, he has such a wide experience and his advice on the change required for my orthodontic treatment was instrumental. He is so attentive and goes the extra mile for his patient. He has such a positive attitude while working, very observant and very particular about the patient’s treatment plan, which makes the visit very comfortable and efficient. Doctor Maysoon Abdelmajeed is just fantastic! Her detail-oriented approach, her recommendation, her explanation to the patient on treatment required is so valuable. I am absolutely beyond satisfied on the changes and the esthetic work that she’s done to give me the perfect smile. The Nurses, Brian Aquino, Susan Derona and Michelle Maggay are highly experienced, very professional and supportive had such a huge impact during my treatment journey. The receptionists, Cholo Papio and Christine Solito are WONDERFUL. They have a very friendly and positive approach and they’re always on top of their game in managing appointments, responding to queries urgently and supporting on any customer request. I highly recommend Doctor Tosun clinic, I am a very detail-oriented person and I am so happy and satisfied with the treatment

Dear Dr Tosun,

I set out below a draft text of the testimonial:

Dr Tosun started my orthodontic treatment about 2.5 years ago. Complications arose when i had an infection and needed to have a tooth removed. At this point Dr Tosun worked with Dr Hani and they decided to carry out an innovative treatment in order to grow more bone before removing the tooth,  doing a bone graft an eventually an implant. They worked together effectively, were very flexible and supportive throughout.

The practice is very modern and well equipped to the highest standard and the team efficient and very helpful.

I have been extremely happy with everything and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them

Dear Dr. Yahya,

I dedicate this testimonial to you and your team at Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic!

When you introduced your collaborator, Mrs. Madalyne Tucker, who works as a Dental Hygienist in your clinics, a couple of weeks back in our chapter, I decided to ask for an appointment.

Today Maddie spent one hour with me where she first explained in details the importance of dental hygiene to then clean my teeth and me tips. I felt very fresh (mouthwise) when I left your clinic. Maddie has a very pleasant personality, explains well and worked carefully.

Overall, I really felt welcomed starting by Jessie the receptionist who had sent me the location upfront via WhatsApp to the friendly coffee boy, and even you took some minutes to say hi to myself and my husband!

Furthermore, I enjoyed the clean and modern atmosphere, the nice colours and paintings, and the latest state of the art technology you are utilizing.

I will definitely recommend Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic to anyone who wants to be his teeth taken care of in a professional manner.

My husband is already in.

I want to wish you best of continued success to you and your team of dental experts, and in particular to Maddie!

Both our children went to Dr. Tosun for their braces. Excellent orthodontist!! They have beautiful smiles because of him😊 Because of the package Dr. Tosun offered we did not have pay extra when my son had some issues with his braces. Dr. Tosun always took the time to explain things to us, but was always ON TIME with his appointments. We can highly recommend his clinic!!

David Hodgson

Having been referred to Dr Tosun by my wife, I have been receiving Orthodontic treatment for the past 11 months. The service and expertise provided has been excellent.

On the rare occasion I needed a quick appointment and Dr Tosun is always on hand to give in person help or help via email. I would highly recommend anyone with Orthodontic needs to feel confident when dealing with Yahya Tosun.

Natalie Hodgson

I decided to get braces after my brother had them done in the UK and I was unable to tell he even had them on for a few days. I looked around at several dentists until I came across Dr Tosun. He seemed to know exactly what he was talking about and gave me some good advice. He advised that it was likely to take 2 years for the treatment and it ended up only taking 21 months in the end.

Dr Tosun is very professional and friendly and if there was ever any problem (on holiday and had a question) he would always respond very efficiently by e-mail with some advice. If I needed to go in to get something checked I was almost always able to go that same day and be fitted in between other appointments, I am very happy with the outcome of my orthodontic work and regularly get comments about my good teeth, thank you Dr Tosun.

Natalie Hodgson

Kathryn Cantwell

We have been going to Dr Tosun and his clinic since inception and have only kind words to say. Excellent care before, during and after.

Kathryn Cantwell

Louise Brown

You will always feel welcomed at Dr Tosun’s clinic. The staff are kind and professional and Dr Tosun did a great job with my daughter’s braces. He took lots of time and care to ensure that the end result was a positive one. I think he genuinely cares about the wellbeing of his patients and was always happy to explain things to us and make himself available if the braces ever needed adjustments or repair in between scheduled appointments. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Tosun’s clinic to anyone looking for excellent dental care.

Louise Brown

Jennifer Atkinson

As a patient of Dr. Tosun for 4 years, I would highly recommend him and his team to serve all your dental needs. He is the most patient, professional, and caring orthodontist. Dr. Tosun makes visiting the dentist a pleasure.

Debbie Hewitt

This testimonial is to say how happy I was with level of customer service I received during our visit to Dr. Tosun, Dental Clinic.

My 4-year old son needed to see a dentist and Dr Yahya suggested we book an appointment with Dr Maysoon.

Dr Maysoun was very kind, understanding and friendly with my son. My son particularly loved the screen on the ceiling where he was able to select a cartoon from the Internet and watch it during his treatment.

The result was one very relaxed and happy little boy. So much so that yesterday he asked me when he would be going back to the dentist again.

As a parent, it makes me very happy to know my 4-year old is having such a positive experience at the dentist.

I was also very impressed with the friendly feel about the clinic, it’s beautiful interior and overall cleanliness.

I would recommend Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic to anyone, particularly parents who may be concerned about their children being anxious when visiting the dentist.
