Crowns and Full Veneers in Turkey
Are you thinking about installing a crown or full veneers in Turkey? Then this article is for you.
Many people in today’s world have problems with their oral health and the beauty of their smiles. Teeth often crumble, turn yellow, or become damaged.
That is why any dental procedure is so popular in the modern world. But, let’s focus on two of the most popular treatments in Turkey in recent times, dental crowns and full veneers.
What are Dental Veneers?
This is a procedure that involves the installation of special overlays on the teeth. To make veneers doctors use different materials. They can be installed in different ways. Also, these overlays are made by different brands. All of these can affect the quality and durability of your veneers, so choosing the right brand and material is not an easy task.
However, our experts will help you to choose exactly the option that suits you the most. Findglob dentists will be happy to answer all your questions. Do not hesitate to write to us.
I understand what Veneers are, but what are full Veneers in Turkey?
Full veneers are almost the same as dental crowns. While traditional veneers are just transparent shells, full veneers are overlays that cover the entire tooth.
The installation procedure is completely painless. The most unpleasant stage can be the removal of impressions. However, Findglob dentists do everything to make your dental treatment as comfortable as possible
What is the Difference Between Full Veneers and Dental Crowns?
In dentistry, there are certain stages in the installation of both of them. Among these stages, several common ones can be distinguished, one of which is tooth grinding
After grinding the tooth, the doctor determines which treatment is best for the patient. If enamel remains on them after the grinding process, this is an indication of the installation of full veneers. If there is no enamel left after grinding, the doctor uses a crown.
The main features of full veneers are:
- restoration of the natural shape of the tooth
- restoration of the natural colour of the teeth or their whitening
- restoration of the aesthetics of the dentition in general.
It is also worth noting that veneers are more often installed for the anterior group of teeth. To do this, the doctor must determine your smile line before the procedure.
What is a Smile Line?
The smile line is the shape of your smile. While you are smiling, the width of your smile is limited to your upper and lower lips. The shape of your smile is the indicator that helps Findglob doctors determine how many dental veneers you need.
Before starting the treatment process, Findglob doctors may ask you to take both X-Rays and simple pictures of your oral cavity, to determine your smile line. Such a preparatory online examination will help our specialists in Turkey to determine the condition of your oral cavity, as well as outline a treatment plan.
What are Crowns?
This is a dental treatment that involves placing a special cap on your teeth to prevent them from being completely destroyed. Most often, they are installed on non-living ones, on which there is almost no enamel left
You can see different types of them in our price list:
- Porcelain fused to metal
- installation without pain and with minimal preparatory work;
- Zirconia-based porcelain
- Celtra Duo
Porcelain Fused to Metal
This type is the oldest among all types. They are reliable but less aesthetically pleasing. Their main advantage is their low price. However, it is worth considering the risks when installing this crown. Metal can cause gum irritation or allergy. In this case, the crown will have to be changed.
This type is more durable and more aesthetic than the previous one. Such a crown is considered a more optimal solution since zirconium helps to reduce the risk of an allergic reaction.
E-max and Celtra Duo
These are the most innovative solutions in modern dentistry. They are made using CAD/CAM technology, which makes these two types the most aesthetic and most durable. Their main advantage is the ability to completely copy the structure of the tooth. They are the most expensive of all, however, they are worth their money.
Indications and Contraindications for the Installation of Full Veneers and Crowns in Turkey
In general, they are practically the same thing, and accordingly, almost all indications will be the same for them, as well as contraindications.
Indications for the procedure:
- Chipped tooth
- Tooth enamel damage
- Unsatisfactory enamel colour
- The desire of the patient to improve the appearance of the smile
- Unwanted and unaesthetic space between teeth
- According to the doctor’s decision
Contraindications to the procedure:
- Partial or complete absence of teeth
- Bad habits of chewing on hard objects (pens, nails, hard shells of nuts, etc.)
- Problems with the bite, which can lead to chipping of the material
There are also certain installation conditions that apply to both dental veneers and dental crowns.
Veneers can be installed if:
- The person has reached the age of 18
- After grinding the tooth, it has enamel
- A tooth is without problems with enamel and without caries
- A tooth is alive and with a root
Crowns are usually installed if:
- After grinding, there is no enamel on the tooth
- The tooth is no longer alive, with a removed root.
- Tooth without caries
What are the reasons for such indications and contraindications?
It is important to note that the veneer and crown protect the tooth enamel from any damage. However, if the tooth is not healthy already under such a cap, then it will not be able to protect it, on the contrary, it will harm it because it simply will not let you see the problem in time. That is why it is important to carry out this treatment on already treated teeth.
As for the age limit, it is worth noting that until the age of 18 a person is constantly growing. It affects everything. To avoid damage to veneers, it is recommended to put them when the body’s bones are fully strengthened and formed.
Why do people today need Dental Treatments more often than before?
In the modern world, the state of oral health in each new generation is getting worse. Due to the high pace of life, people often do not adhere to the simplest rules of oral care. As a result, caries appears on the enamel, in the best case. And in the worst case, a person can lose their teeth at all.
Another reason for the increasing popularity of dental procedures is the high sugar content of all foods. Exactly this destroys tooth enamel the most. Given the time constraints, people have to brush their teeth at least once a day, and sugar remains on the enamel for a long time. Accordingly, the destruction of enamel occurs at a very high speed.
In addition, many people are simply terrified of going to the dentist. Because of this, they delay going to the doctor and neglect the diseases. Such fear arises due to the huge number of unprofessional specialists in this field and the always very painful treatment. However, Findglob clinic in Turkey can guarantee a professional approach and painless treatment. We will be sensitive to all your fears and desires.
