Dental Veneers in Iran
When you make your decision to travel to Iran for dental treatment, the picture of a bright white smile or Hollywood smile on the faces of the stars comes to mind. Everyone dreams of having that smile, and fortunately, this has become very easy through affordable high-quality dental treatment in Iran using porcelain laminates such as veneers.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers (also known as porcelain veneers, composite veneers, or dental laminates) are very thin, hard-wearing, and durable crusts, made of porcelain or other similar materials, attached to the front surface of the tooth to protect it and hide its defects. They also enhance the similarity and harmony between them and the rest of the teeth in appearance and function. Veneers are not susceptible to changing colors with pigmented drinks like natural teeth and are designed for each patient specifically in special laboratories.
The teeth and gums should be healthy and any oral diseases and tooth decay should be treated before applying veneers.
Note: Porcelain veneers are stronger than composite veneers (also known as direct veneers or dental bonding). They look like natural teeth, last longer, and are more resistant than composite resin veneers to stains and cavities. Composite veneers instead are cheaper and repaired quickly.
Why Iran for Dental Veneers?
Iran is known as a destination for cosmetic surgeries, such as rhinoplasty and cosmetic dentistry. Many travelers from four corners of the globe visit Iran, particularly the capital city of Tehran, for dental purposes. High quality and affordability of dental services, proficient dentists and dental surgeons, as well as technological developments, have made Iran a top dental destination in the Middle East.
What Problems Do Veneers and Lumineers Fix?
Dental treatment with veneers can be used when damage has occurred to the enamel layer, which is the outer layer of the tooth when teeth get chipped, stained, or worn out, or in those cases when there are wide gaps between teeth or malalignment, and the people wish to straighten their crooked teeth without braces. In all those cases, treatment can be done with veneers to protect the tooth from further damage and enhance its appearance.
Veneers are also used in cases of pigmentation caused by smoking or some drinks, or other aesthetic problems, especially when the discolored teeth cannot be corrected by teeth whitening or bleaching. In this particular case, Lumineers can be used to solve the problem and restore the bright white appearance of the teeth.
Porcelain laminates such as Veneers or Lumineers are also used to treat misaligned teeth (uneven teeth) as a cosmetic dental treatment to solve teeth misalignment problems.
What Are the Differences between Traditional Veneers and Lumineers?
Traditional dental veneers are a bit thicker than dental Lumineers. This implies that veneer application necessitates some preparation to the outer layer of the tooth for the veneer laminate to be applied to it to obtain the best possible aesthetic result.
During the dental veneer procedure, the treatment period may extend up to 2 weeks or 2 treatment sessions most of the time, and sometimes more, depending on the case. In that case, temporary veneers are used between the sessions until the permanent veneers are applied
With dental Lumineer treatment, we do not use temporary laminates. Lumineers are designed in a computerized manner to get high-precision results. Because Lumineers are super thin in thickness, they can be installed on the teeth without the need to carve the tooth or trim off the enamel. Despite this, Lumineers give great results and a 100% natural look.
Both veneers and Lumineers are made of highly durable and robust porcelain, which maintains its appearance and function for many years.

Is the Procedure of Getting Veneers or Lumineers Painful?
Getting veneers is easy and smooth and it does not cause any pain. Local anesthesia may be used to numb the area.
What Are the Disadvantages of Dental Veneers or Lumineers?
Veneers are distinguished by their strength and resistance, as their life extends from 10 to 20 years without needing any maintenance in cases of natural use conditions, which makes them very similar to natural teeth.
There are no serious adverse side effects for the veneers, but whenever you get Veneers or Lumineers, part of your teeth may get carved, and thus the enamel layer is lost. This happens more with Veneers, and it is an irreversible procedure. Whenever veneers are damaged, they must be replaced immediately.
Moreover, the teeth may become more sensitive to hot and cold or sweet foods and drinks after the process since a small part of the enamel is removed.
It is worth mentioning that it is necessary to beware of the habits harmful to the teeth after getting Veneers or Lumineers, such as biting the nails, eating ice, grinding or clenching, and other things that may harm the dental laminates or lead to their damage.
Note: Dental veneer procedure in Iran is usually applied in 2 sessions, and sometimes 3 appointments may be necessary. Depending on the operation, it may take between 3 to 14 days.
The Procedure of Getting Dental Lumineers?
Getting a Dental Lumineer: First Session
Hard impressions and digital models may be taken for your teeth from both the upper and the lower jaws. These models are sent to a dental lab specialized in designing porcelain Lumineer according to the sizes of your teeth, and unlike the Veneer procedure, this procedure (Lumineer application procedure) is done without carving your teeth or trimming the enamel layer. So, there are no temporary materials used between sessions.
Getting a Dental Lumineer: Second Session
On the second visit, the dentist applies the Lumineer laminates and fixes them with a special bonding material and a light beam. In some cases, they may have to carve a very small part of the tooth in a small group of patients. Then, the dentist evaluates your smile and makes sure that you do not have a teeth occlusion or any other problems.
The Procedure for Getting Dental Veneers?

The tooth is prepared by carving a small layer of the front surface, and a little from the sides, to leave enough room to apply the veneers to enhance the aesthetic and natural appearance of teeth in terms of size and alignment. Just like in the Lumineers procedure, the dentist makes impressions of your teeth and designs the smile that suits you the most, taking into account the size of facial bones. These models are sent to a dental laboratory specialized in designing Veneers according to the measurements taken. Then, the doctor will install temporary Veneers for your teeth until the next session.
Getting a Dental Veneer: Second Session
The dentist applies the designed veneers to check if they fit your teeth well from the aesthetical and functional aspects. If there are no adjustments needed, veneers are applied permanently to your teeth with a special bonding material and a light beam.
