Dental Veneers for a More Brilliant Smile

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin composite that your doctor places and bonds over your teeth.

First, your doctor will make a thorough diagnosis of your teeth’s’ status. In case the recommended course of treatment is veneers, then he will take a mold of your teeth and send it to a lab.

Once the veneers return from the laboratory, your doctor will prep your teeth (minimal grinding and trimming) and then bond the veneers over your teeth. The entire veneers by Merve Askerden Cosmetic Dental Clinic procedure doesn’t take more than 2-3 visits.
At the end of the intervention you will enjoy a bright, white, and impeccable smile.

Veneers come with plenty of cosmetic and therapeutic benefits:

* They cover teeth stains, cracks, surface irregularities, gaps in between teeth, discolored fillings, and so on.

* They mimic the color and shine of your natural teeth, offering you straight, even, and smooth smile that will last you for years.

For a week or two you will have to adjust to your new teeth and their improved shape and size.

Maintenance is easy – daily brushing and flossing should be enough.
You may also have to see your doctor again for follow-up in a couple of weeks after the application.

Why does the Dentist polish my teeth?

Your teeth may be polished to remove fine layers of plaque or small traces of calculus debris.
Your dentist may polish some or all of your teeth depending on what they see after cleaning your teeth.
Traditionally, polishing was a standard part of your check-up dental clean, however it is not an essential part of the process. In most patients it has little therapeutic value and so you may never have your teeth polished.
If your dentist does need to polish one or some of your teeth. They will use a slow speed drill, except the drill bit is replaced with a very soft rubber cup. They fill the rubber cup with a special tooth polishing paste called Prophylaxis paste (or prophy for short). Prophy paste tastes like mint flavoured mud and feels like gritty toothpaste.
Once the rubber cup on the end of the dentist hand-piece is filled, your dentist will start it up and then selectively place the spinning rubber cup on the surfaces of your teeth they want to polish. It may sound like a drill, but it is definitely not a drill!
The result you get from having your teeth polished is a smooth glossy feeling when you run your tongue across your teeth.

Can dentures be made into implants?

Dentures cannot be “made into implants”. Implants are metal screws placed into the jawbone to help anchor and support artificial teeth (dentures). It may be possible to have implants placed beneath existing dentures to aid in the stabilization and support for those dentures. This could only be done if the current dentures were otherwise in excellent condition. You should consult with your prosthodontist to have your existing dentures carefully examined.

What if I want "metal-free" implants?

There is no such thing as “metal-free” teeth. Almost all materials used for teeth replacements have some sort of metal ions in them. Dental implants are made of titanium alloy (similar to hip implants, shoulder implants, and knee implants), which is highly biocompatible, and an allergy to titanium is extremely rare! Currently, there are no proven alternatives to titanium dental implants.

What is the success rate of dental implants?

It varies from individual to individual and with health and habits. For a healthy individual with good oral hygiene and good health, dental implants are predictably successful with reported success rates above 90-95 percent.

Do I Need to Have X-Rays?

Many patients are reluctant to have xrays because of the risks associated with radiation exposure; it’s also the reason why many dentists only choose to get x-rays when absolutely essential in your diagnosis or treatment.

X-rays provide your dentist with additional important information about the condition of your teeth and will reveal any hidden decay, problems with the roots of your teeth or issues with your jaw and your facial bones.
Things that they can’t get to view any other way without serious undertakings that are very costly to you.

If you are in doubt about the need for x-rays, ask your dentist to explain why they want or need them.
You may also want to ask if there is any other alternative to having x-rays; that way you can make a fully informed decision.

What is Dental Pulp?

While your teeth may appear to be strong rock-like objects in your mouth, they are in fact multi-layered living human tissues.

Dental Pulp is the soft tissue deep inside your teeth that extends from the top most part of your tooth (the crown) right through down to the tip of the root that goes into your jaw bone.

The dental pulp is made up of connective tissues through which blood and lymphatic fluids flow plus contains the nerves that cause toothache when there is something wrong a tooth.

What types of veneers are there?

There are two types of veneers; Porcelain Veneers and Composite Resin Veneers.

Porcelain veneers are made and bonded to your teeth.
Resin veneers are put directly on your teeth.
Both are designed to cover the front side of your teeth.
Both are intended to fit your mouth and your smile to look natural.
Caring for veneers is the same as cleaning natural teeth.

Do I need to have my denture relined?

The extractions and the fitting of the immediate denture, are followed by rapid bone shrinkage, and your denture will need the fitting surface relined once the shrinking has slowed.

The relining will be done from 3 to 6 months after the immediate denture has been fitted.

Relining will involve an additional fee, but it’s cheaper than a new set of dentures and you will probably be much happier with a better fit.

Natural changes in the mouth will cause dentures to lose their fit.

Avoid chewing gum or biting your nails when you have dentures; grinding your teeth is something else to avoid.

See your dentist every year or two years in case relining is necessary; even losing weight can cause the need of a denture reline.
