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.

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!!
