Porcelain dental veneers are made of one of the most natural-looking materials for dental restorations. They allow patients to get a Hollywood smile makeover without replacing their teeth.
Porcelain veneers are predominantly used as a cosmetic treatment to close the gaps between teeth, whiten them and treat chipping or other mechanical damage.

Cost of Full Set of Porcelain Veneers in Turkey
The cost for a full set of porcelain dental veneers in Turkey depends on the clinic, location and the veneer’s material. For example, prices in Antalya will be different from prices in Istanbul.
At the Dentatur’s dental clinic in Turkey, a patient can get a full set of porcelain dental veneers for £ 100. Compared to prices for similar procedures in many Western countries, our prices are much lower, but the patient will get the same results as in more expensive Western clinics. Dentistry and other medical services in Turkey are more affordable in general. Because of this, Turkey is a popular destination for medical tourism.
BEFORE & AFTER
The low living cost in Turkey makes the prices more affordable to those who live in more expensive countries. But Turkish clinics are able to buy costly high-quality dentistry materials with the help of governmental aid provided to Turkey’s healthcare businesses.
Affordable prices are highly important for patients who want to restore their smiles with full dental veneer treatment, as placing a veneer on each tooth in the patient’s smile line can be very expensive in the West.

What Factors Affect the Cost of Porcelain Veneers in Turkey?
The final cost of porcelain veneers (sometimes called porcelain laminates) in Turkey will depend on a number of factors.
- The total amount of veneers. The more veneers a patient requires, the higher the price will be. While clinics in Turkey typically offer package deals on veneer installation, the price of the packages is still determined by how many veneers a patient wants to install. Often, the number will be determined by the patient’s “smile line” – the teeth visible when the patient smiles. Some patients may want to install laminates even beyond the smile
- Material. Dentists use many different porcelain materials for veneer manufacturing. Some of them, such as traditional porcelain, are cheaper than others. Modern porcelains that are manufactured from rare minerals, such as zirconium, or using proprietary technologies, such as Emax, will cost more.
- Additional treatments. Some patients need to have additional dental treatments before installing the veneers. For example, a patient who needs a root canal treatment can only get veneers installed after the treatment is completed.
- The dentist’s experience. Installing dental veneers requires dentists to make many decisions on how to perform the procedure. Each case needs an individualised approach, so the more experienced dentist can better determine the best way of conducting a veneer treatment. Naturally, as these dentists have higher rates of successful treatments, they also charge more.
The Difference Between Porcelain Veneers and Other Types of Veneers
The three most common ceramic materials used in modern dentistry for full smile restoration are traditional porcelain, zirconia and Emax. Veneers made of these materials can be called porcelain veneers. The other popular veneer type is made of composite resin – this is a non-porcelain material.
A traditional porcelain veneer is made of dental porcelain, a known and well-studied material that is known to be durable and similar in appearance to natural tooth enamel. Each veneer made of traditional dental porcelain is custom-made in the clinic’s lab for each patient to ensure it perfectly matches the shape and colour of the tooth. Traditional porcelain is durable but can crack if the patient tends to grit or grind their teeth.
Zirconia is a type of white porcelain that contains zirconium. It is the strongest of the popular dental ceramic materials. It is more expensive than traditional porcelain, and the veneer made from zirconia is thicker. As such, dentists need to remove more of the patient’s tooth to install a zirconia veneer than a traditional porcelain one. Zirconia veneers are made using CAD/CAM technology. The veneers are made with the aid of a computer by first making a detailed 3D scan of the patient’s teeth and then designing the future veneer using 3D modelling. As a result, the risk of zirconia veneer not fitting the patient’s tooth is minimal. The 3D modelling also allows the dentist to show a patient a digital simulation of how the veneers will look, either on an individual tooth or when making a full jaw or mouth veneer treatment.
E-max dental veneers are made of the newest popular porcelain material called lithium disilicate. They have a high aesthetic value, as the material is translucent, similar to natural tooth enamel. The Emax veneers are the thinnest of all porcelain veneers, and so, even though lithium disilicate is a hard material, the Emax veneer is the least durable of porcelain dental veneers. Its translucency also makes it unsuitable for people whose teeth need extensive restoration, as tooth imperfections will show through the dental veneer. This veneer type is rarely used as a tooth-whitening treatment and is most useful in subtle shape restoration treatments, such as closing gaps between teeth.
Composite resin veneers are cheaper than porcelain, but are the least durable and natural-looking. They are often used as a temporary solution before the patient replaces them with one of the porcelain veneer types. Composite resin is rarely used for permanent smile makeover treatments, as they are very easy to stain, often unevenly, making each veneer slightly different in colour.
Porcelain Veneers Implantation Stages in Turkey
Before installing dental veneers, the patient will undergo a consultation at the clinic in Turkey. The dentist will recommend what veneer type will be the best for the patient.
Porcelain veneer requires the tooth to be specially prepared before installing it. The dentist will alter the tooth’s structure by filing down some of the tooth enamel. Then, the dentist will take measurements of the patient’s teeth, usually using 3D scanning technology, that will be used to manufacture the veneers in the lab. The manufacturing will take several days, so the veneer installation procedure takes at least two visits to the dentist. The dentist will place a temporary laminate on treated teeth to protect them.
When the veneers are manufactured, the patient returns to the clinic for their installation. After that, the patient’s smile makeover is finished. The patient may want to have another visit to the clinic after the veneer installation to ensure the proper adhesion of the laminates.
How Long Does it Take to Get Porcelain Veneers in Turkey?
Patients should expect to stay in Turkey for about five days. After the initial consultation, the dentist will need to prepare the patient’s teeth for dental veneer installation. This will be done during the first visit to the dentist. Also, because dental veneers are made to order, the patient will need to wait for the dental lab to manufacture them.
The time needed for manufacturing the veneers is about forty-eight hours, but it can take longer if the patient wants to install many veneers at once. After the veneers are made, they are usually installed during the next visit to the clinic. If the patient wants to install a full veneer set, a third visit may be needed, especially if the chosen veneer type requires extensive tooth preparation.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last in Turkey?
Porcelain dental veneers, just like other dental implants, such as dental crowns, can last a long time with proper oral care. The dentists will give detailed instructions on veneer care. In general, porcelain veneer treatment can last for more than ten years without any signs of deterioration.
To keep their new smile for a long time after the treatment, patients should brush their teeth twice a day, floss them at least once a day and use additional oral care supplies, such as mouthwashes. Patients must avoid grinding or clenching their teeth, as porcelain is vulnerable to such mechanical stresses.
