Dental Laminates

Dental laminates are very thin materials produced from tooth-colored porcelain or composite and adhered to the outer surface of the teeth. They are used in the treatment of problems such as eroded tooth enamel, misaligned teeth, gaps between teeth, discoloration of teeth and tooth breakage. Dental laminates are very thin restorations with a thickness of 0.3-0.7 mm. The fact that these restorations are so thin allows us to obtain the closest aesthetics to the natural tooth by maximizing the light transmittance. Laminates made using the right technique and adhesives are very durable and offer a beautiful smile to our patients for many years.

dental laminates; They fall under the scope of aesthetic dentistry as they help smile design by providing smooth, aligned and shaped teeth. But they also show protective properties and eliminate the need for more difficult treatments. For dental laminates, either no or very little abrasion is required from the natural structure of the tooth. The amount of etching required for crowns and bridges is much higher.

Problems That Can Be Solved With Dental Laminate

Regardless of the cause of dissatisfaction with the teeth, dental laminates provide a solution for all or most of your problems in the field of aesthetic dentistry.

Worn Tooth Enamel

Tooth enamel can wear down over time (due to the consumption of soda, tea, coffee, smoking or certain medications) or due to a genetic predisposition. Dental laminates are a great solution for correcting smiles that are affected by erosion of tooth enamel.


With advancing age, our teeth naturally begin to wear out. As age progresses, the likelihood of fractures, ruptures or mismatches in the teeth increases. Dental laminates can give you a healthy, young and natural tooth appearance.

Mismatched Teeth

Size differences between teeth or crooked teeth can result from clenching/grinding and/or wear of the teeth. In addition to causing aesthetic problems, this can also prevent the teeth from closing properly.

Color Change

Resistant tooth staining may not be completely cured by teeth whitening. In such cases where bleaching does not work, dental laminate offers a simple and aesthetic solution to this problem.

Spaces Between Teeth

Structurally, some individuals have spaces called diastema, especially between the teeth in the anterior region. Sometimes over the years, gaps may occur between the teeth due to age or tooth loss. Dental laminates are one of the most commonly used treatment methods to close these gaps.
