Dental implants and veneers are fairly widely used dental treatment methods. In this article, we will provide you with information about the operations of dental implants and veneers Turkey.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial titanium root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone below the gum line, allowing the dentist to place a replacement tooth or bridge in that area. It is a safe and proven effective alternative to the natural tooth root. It provides a strong foundation for permanent or movable replacement teeth which are made in accordance with the natural teeth.

They are made of titanium (a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and stable base for replacement teeth). This metal has the unique ability to connect directly to bone through a process known as osseointegration (“osseo” – bone; “integration” – by fusion). For this reason, it is extremely important that the dental implant is designed to maximize surface-to-bone contact.

A dental implant is a perfect option for people who have lost their teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury or any other reason.

Who can have dental implants?

To have a dental implant, you must meet the following basic criteria:

  •  Healthy teeth and gums
  •  Adequate bone density to support a dental implant
  •  Good oral hygiene
  •  Not being treated with bisphosphonate drugs (usually used to treat cancer)
  •  Do not smoke
  •  Standby for four to twelve months

Dental Implant Procedure

The first step in the dental implant application process is to develop a personalized treatment plan. The plan is geared to your specific needs and was created by a team of experienced professionals specially trained in oral surgery. This team approach ensures coordinated care based on the implant option that is most appropriate for you.

Most surgical procedures related to dental implants are performed in a dentist’s office and sometimes in a hospital. For these outpatient procedures, local anesthesia (numbness of the area with small needles) is usually sufficient. Additional surgical procedures, such as bone augmentation, may be performed as separate procedures or at the same time as implantation. Each surgical procedure may vary depending on the clinical situation and the preferences of the patient and dentist.

What are dental veneers?

These are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that stick to the teeth. They can also be made of a composite material. They can close cavities, improve the shape of the teeth or change the color of the teeth.

How long does the entire veneering process take?

Planning your treatment: The first step is to find out if the treatment is right for you. It requires your active participation. You should inform your dentist in detail about the expected result.

During the consultation, your dentist will look at your teeth and advise you on procedures and restrictions to make sure the veneers are right for you. A dentist can use an X-ray to analyze the condition of the dentition.

In the veneering procedure, the dentist removes a portion of the enamel as little as is necessary to align the veneer. This amount is almost equal to the thickness of the veneer to be applied to the tooth surface.

Then the dentist takes an impression of your tooth. This measurement is then sent to the laboratory, where the veneered teeth will be made individually. It may take up to two weeks for the final veneer to be applied. Usually, temporary overlays are placed first.

Before the veneer is glued to the teeth, the dentist places it temporarily on the teeth to check its fit and color. The veneer can be removed multiple times and trimmed as needed to achieve the desired fit.

The color of the shade of the coating can be balanced with the shade of the material to be used. Then a fixer is applied to the veneer and the veneer is placed over the tooth.

What are the things that should be known before dental veneer?

Before veneering, your gums and teeth should be in good condition. If you have gum disease it should be treated before putting on the veneer.

Veneers are not always a good choice for patients who clench or grind their teeth as thin veneers can crack due to grinding of the teeth. If you clench or grind your teeth, your dentist may recommend that you wear a plastic denture cover overnight.

Occasionally it may happen that the coatings come loose over time. In that case, you may need new ones. It is recommended that you discuss all your expectations and treatment options with your dentist. Regular visits to the dentist are essential to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

How to care for veneers?

You may not feel comfortable when you start using veneers. However, if the bite is not palpable immediately after placing the veneer, contact your dentist. So the problem can be solved before leaving the clinic.

Coatings may crack under pressure. For this reason, your dentist may advise you to avoid chewing on hard foods. It may take a few days for the veneers to get used to.
