Laminated Dental Veneer
Laminated tooth coating is an innovative treatment method offered by today’s dentistry, which is preferred especially for aesthetic concerns. Laminates in the form of thin porcelain plates are generally used to eliminate aesthetic problems in the front teeth. This treatment method is performed with a minimally invasive intervention in the tooth structure, that is, the entire tooth is not cut, only a thinning of 0.3 – 0.7 mm is performed.
After thinning the front face of the tooth where the laminated veneer will be applied, the laminate is placed in this area by means of special adhesives. In this way, the tooth is restored in accordance with its original form and a natural appearance is given.
Laminated tooth coating is a very effective alternative for cases where tooth whitening procedures are insufficient. In addition, this coating method provides an effective restoration for broken, cracked or deconstructed teeth. If laminates are to be used in the process of joining separated teeth or replacing old fillings, it is possible to achieve much more permanent and aesthetic results.
Another advantage of laminated veneers is their longevity. With proper care and regular dentist control, laminates can provide a quality and aesthetic smile for many years. However, laminated veneer treatment may not be suitable for all patients. For example, people with intense teeth clenching or grinding habits may not be suitable candidates for this treatment due to the risk of laminates breaking. Therefore, it is important to have a comprehensive dental examination before starting laminated veneer treatment.
