Dental Laminates

What are Dental Laminates?

Dental laminates, also referred to as dental laminate veneers, are thin, smooth and shiny custom made shells that are placed on the surface of teeth to restore an aesthetically pleasing appearance to the smile. Dental laminates are bonded to the teeth’s surface to improve their shape, size, color, and appearance and unlike dental crowns only require the removal of a small part of the tooth.

Why are Dental Laminates performed?

Dental laminates are primarily performed to treat the physical deformities of the teeth. Dental laminates are performed to:

  • Treat chipped or broken teeth.
  • To fix uneven or misaligned teeth.
  • To eliminate the gaps between the teeth.
  • To create a new appealing smile.
  • To permanently remove and prevent stains.

Stains caused by certain antibiotics or excess fluoride are unable to be resolved through teeth whitening and therefore require Dental Laminates to be inserted, which provide a permanent stainless teeth surface.

What are the conditions for Dental Laminates?

Patients might not be suitable for dental laminates if they suffer from:

  • Insufficient or unhealthy gums
  • Teeth grinding problem, bruxism
  • A protruding lower jaw, prognathism
  • Crooked teeth that require orthodontic treatment

Patients who do not have these listed conditions and wish to fix chipped, broken, uneven, or stained teeth are eligible for dental laminates.

What are the things to be considered before getting Dental Laminates?

The patient’s health history is taken, and it, along with additional information that may be requested, is examined to create a treatment plan for the patient. After the patient arrives in Turkey a thorough dental examination is made where the color of the dental laminates most appropriate for the patient’s teeth is chosen.

How are the Dental Laminates inserted?

Dental laminates usually require 2 to 3 visits to be fully inserted. The first appointment involves the teeth enamel being filed down approximately 0.5 - 1 mm to create space for the dental laminates. Measurements are then taken and a mold of the patient’s teeth and gums are taken. The second visit starts by an acidic gel being applied to the teeth and then the dental laminates being bonded to the teeth through the acidic gel. In some cases an additional visit might be required to check and make mild adjustments to the dental laminates.

First appointment usually takes up to half an hour while the second appointment, on average, takes 2 hours. Dental laminates, if taken care of properly, usually last 5 to 15 years.

What are the things to be considered after getting Dental Laminates?

Patients are recommended to diligently follow their cosmetic dentist’s instructions, which includes taking provided prescription medicine. The patients should also take care to avoid hard or sticky foods, including chewing gum, for at least the first 24 hours after the procedure. Patients are also recommended to be gentle while brushing their teeth for a week after the procedure. After the recovery period, the patients should care to keep good dental hygiene and avoid putting excess pressure on the teeth, through grinding or using teeth to open packaging for example. Otherwise the expected lifespan of the dental laminates might decrease.

What are the risks of Dental Laminates?

While dental laminates are considered a safe cosmetic dental procedure, like with any other major procedure, there is a risk of complications. Potential risks of dental laminates include, but are not limited to:

  • Discomfort or excessive sensitivity to changes in temperature.
  • The dental laminates chipping, getting loose, or dropping off, often as a result of excess physical pressure.
  • An allergic reaction to the material dental laminates are made up of.
  • Discoloration
  • Gingivitis or other gum diseases
  • Poorly fitted dental laminates may impact the balance of biting, leading to an increased risk of breakage, discomfort while eating, and stress on the jaw joints.

Un grand merci à Pierre,Oscar,Stella et Ellie. Vous allez beaucoup me manquer

Mags reviewed Excellent service with

I used for procedures at medistanbul with Dr Yalcin. From getting in contact to having the procedures the care has been second to none. The coordinators and interpreters have made everything seamless, many thanks to Lily, Morgan and Frank for all your help. The nursing staff are always at the end of the buzzer and the cleaners are popping in regularly with a smile and a mop. The food not so amazing but I didn’t come here for a gourmet experience! Would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this company.

I had a boob augmentation (implant under the muscle) this week at medistanbul with booking surgery and I arranged the booking with David a co-ordinater who was nothing short of brilliant and even came to see me post surgery to make sure things were all okay. Dr Yalcin did my surgery, post surgery care and took out my drains and was a lovely bloke who achieved everything I asked for and more. Lily - my interpreter helped me the whole time and even got me English tea and coffee into the hospital, she helped me with my payments and general healthcare. All of the nurses were so caring, considerate and made me feel comfortable. On my leaving day, I felt reassured and ready to leave. I will definitely be returning for more surgery in the future :)

Danielle selwood reviewed Incredible service 5☆ all the way!

FDL 360 & BREAST UPLIFT n IMPLANTS Op date 3rd June 2024 Under Dr Yalçin At Medistanbul Hospital Omg I honestly have so much to say! What a fantastic service from the moment I contacted them nearly a year ago. My coordinator was Deniz and nothing was to much. I was given all the information about surgeons, pictures of there plastic surgery work and the decision was mine. I chose Dr Yalçin🩺 Upon arrival in Istanbul Sunday 2nd June I was picked up and it all began. Loads of staff a lot of different faces and always an translators at all times. I meet Dr Yalçin Monday 8am he done his drawings in me and I went down about 8.30am. Pain was manageable, nurses would come when you buzzed. Dr visited very day to check on all my wounds. Honestly just so incredibly grateful to Dr Yalçin and his team, 20yrs I waited and you made all my dreams come true in 1 day. Plus he has the loveliest smile you will see in your day. I had a few peeks and the wounds and stitching look phenomenal. If only Dr Yalçin new how much is amazing work literally changes people's lives. Thank you so much ;-) Big shout out to Lily and the whole translators and Booking Surgery Team. Would 💯 recommend to anyone asking and i know where to come if I'm ever looking for something else in future (Maybe thigh n arms we will see)! Though my husband did say next time we come to Turkey 🇹🇷 it's for a holiday😜 Take Care All Danielle Selwood

Jo Davis reviewed Breast uplift with implant…

I had a breast uplift with implant through BookingSurgery.Com on 3rd June 2024, and my partner had dental work done by them too whilst we were there. My partner and I used this company through personal recommendation from someone he knew who had used them for weight loss surgery and then for plastics/reconstructive surgery after. After hearing "horror stories" about surgeries abroad, it was important to get it right. I initially contacted BookingSurgery.Com through their website and a coordinator named Robert Campbell followed up my enquiry through WhatsApp message. After discussion about breast augmentation, Robert consulted with the surgery team and came back to me with a recommendations and quote from two surgeons. The recommendation was breast uplift with implant. I was very happy that the quote included transfers from airport to hospital, the surgery and medications, three meals a day for myself and a companion and their overnight stay too. To secure the price I only had to pay a £100 deposit and the outstanding balance didn't need to be paid until my surgery date. Robert asked me when I'd like to come for my surgery, I gave him an ideal date and he secured it. Robert was a brilliant coordinator, very polite and responded to my queries in good time, liaised with the surgeon and informed me accordingly at all times. When it came to the time for us to come to Turkey, the person who met us off the plane (Gurçan) was very friendly, helpful and a good driver. The cab had WiFi we could connect to which was great. (We also had the same driver who took us back to the airport for our return flight.) We arrived at the hospital and were met by a very happy, welcoming friendly translator called Stella who showed us to our room and explained what would happen next (as you have your pre-op on the day of arrival.) The consent form was very transparent on the surgery I was receiving, what to expect and any risks associated with the procedure which meant I could make an informed choice. The hospital we were at was called Yasam and the rooms, corridors etc were very clean and nice. The nurses were friendly and the care received was of a high quality. The cleaners were friendly and polite too. We had our own bathroom and smart tv and were comfortable. My partner's coordinator, Nora, arranged affordable transfers using the BookingSurgery.Com drivers to take him to the dental hospital in the city where he had his prep work and crowns fitted. The following day was surgery day and I met with my surgeon (Dr Nebil) and the anaesthetist. Dr Nebil really listened to what I was hoping to achieve and very informative. Before going down for surgery, the nurse gave me a sedative as general procedure. I was very happy with the results of my surgery and glad that I followed Dr Nebil's advice of implant with the uplift. His work is amazing! The nurses looked after me very well and the Dr visits you every single day to check on your progress and to answer any questions. There's always a translator on site which makes communication no issue. Pain relief and medications are all included in the care during hospital and when you go home. You receive an information pack to go home with which gives you very detailed advice on how to care for yourself following surgery including when you can resume normal activities such as driving, exercise, sunbathing etc. There are fit to fly letters, medication list with instructions on how to use, all tests taken prior to surgery, and after with the results, and a detailed write up on the surgery process, what was performed and how. I have photocopies of the boxes that my implants came in with serial numbers, details etc, and also contact info for a post op coordinator should there be any issues or if my recovery isn't as explained in the letter. This is very reassuring that BookingSurgery.Com are still looking after me once home. There were 4 translators in the hospital who were all helpful but I want to give a special mention to Stella and Oscar who I felt were more like friends. I met some lovely people on my ward who were all with BookingSurgery.Com for various procedures and having them to talk with definitely helped in terms of company and what to expect in regards of recovery etc. Before leaving Yasam hospital, I was very happy that I was able to have a photo taken with my Dr and translators, and am so happy that I chose to use BookingSurgery.Com

MRS VICTORIA CONNELL reviewed This is my 2nd time with…

This is my 2nd time with Bookingsurgery. Both bariatric and plastics. The nurses and surgeons and translators are amazing. The care they provide is so much better than the UK. You want for nothing, I’ve need help this time and they are with you in minutes. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back again. Dr Nabil, Nadia, Oscar and the whole team thank you for changing my life
