Dental crown veneers are the placing of aesthetic materials made of porcelain on the teeth, which are specially applied to the person. In order for the veneer to be placed on the tooth to be veneered and not to have a height difference with other teeth, it should be cut down by at least 1 mm. The purpose of dental veneers is to protect the tooth, to give it an aesthetic and beautiful appearance and to increase its functionality.
In which cases are crown veneers applied?
– Used to restore fillings when there is not enough dental support in the area

Crown Coating Materials
The materials used in dental veneers vary in quality. These differences reflect the price of the processing and determine the porcelain coating prices. Together with your doctor, you will decide on the coating material to be applied to your teeth. Today, the most frequently used materials in dentistry are metal-supported and completely porcelain veneers. The difference between these two porcelain veneers is that full porcelain veneers are more aesthetic than metal-supported ones.
How long does it take for dental veneers to be completed?
Dental porcelain veneers are completed after 2 or 3 sessions. The time-consuming steps of porcelain veneers are carried out in a laboratory environment. Your time in the dental chair is very short. Necessary measurements for your tooth will be taken, your tooth will be cut to fit the prosthesis up to 1 mm, and the measurements will be sent to the laboratory and your dental prosthesis will be prepared in this environment. In the second session, the procedure will be completed by applying your dental prosthesis. Dentists who are not located in the same environment as the dental laboratory and the dental clinic may extend the session for 1 more session as a result of mistakes that can be made in the dental prosthesis measurements.
