Laminate veneer (laminate-Laminate) Tooth coatings can be made basically for the purpose of removing color changes and correcting the shape to a certain extent. The main application areas can be summarized as follows:
Connecting split teeth (diastema closure)
Restoration of broken or worn teeth
In the correction of old fillings with discolored and structured
It can be a near-perfect cosmetic alternative for correcting crooked and crooked teeth (as an alternative to orthodontic treatment).
Treatment of spaced teeth (diastema) with laminate
Almost everyone! People of all age groups who complain about the above reasons can benefit from laminate treatment. However, bad habits such as jaw disorders, nail biting, pen biting are not applied in cases where there is severe gingival damage. Your dentist will decide this best.
First of all, your tooth is prepared for the procedure, the residues on it are cleaned. Impressions are then taken to obtain an exact copy of your tooth. The layer to be adhered to your tooth is prepared from porcelain material. Finally, as with adhesive systems (bonding), laminates are fused to the surface of the existing tooth with resin (an adhesive intermediate).
Laminates can be used for years without any problems with good oral care. Because they are made of porcelain with superior properties than other adhesive systems (bonding). They are more resistant to staining and abrasion. In order to prolong their life, it is necessary to pay attention to oral care. In addition, it is necessary to avoid bad habits such as biting very hard foods and biting nails.
In cases where you cannot smile confidently due to caries, abrasions, fractures or structural anomalies, it is possible to give your teeth a natural beauty with this method. While fillings and full coatings were the only solution in such adverse situations in the past, there are new alternatives such as laminate treatment today. The advantages of this new application;
A healthy and natural appearance is achieved in a very short time with a small intervention.
Just make a nail-wide slot in your tooth (which may not always be necessary)
They are produced from durable, colorfast and durable materials.
It is only possible with laminate veneers to have the aesthetic features you want without deteriorating the natural structure of your teeth. Either no change is made on the tooth or with a little correction, the result can be more perfect. The amount removed from the tooth is already limited to 0.3-0.7 mm. Thus, there is no need to cut (reduce) any teeth.
The laboratory stage of treatment is only 3-4 days. However, in smile design, it may take 3-4 weeks for your lips to adapt to your new look at the end of this period. We recommend some lip exercises and reading during this alignment. At the end of this period, you can easily smile with your new teeth that are completely integrated with your face and cannot be detected as artificial.
A copy of your teeth that you are not satisfied with the appearance can be obtained and a design can be made on it. that is, we can show you the change that will occur in your teeth before any intervention is made on your teeth.
Since the porcelain surfaces will be extremely smooth, it minimizes the stains and tartar formations caused by smoking and similar reasons.
It does not change color with external factors such as coffee, tea, cigarettes.
It is quite fragile in material. However, when fully bonded to enamel, its resistance to tensile and tensile forces becomes very high. For example, it is not possible to completely remove an adhered veneer from the tooth. However, it can be removed from the tooth surface by abrading with diamond burs.
It has high resistance to abrasion.
It has advantages over other restorations in terms of health. However, it is a slightly more expensive system compared to others.
It is a delicate technique. It requires a good clinical and laboratory work. Physicians and dental technicians must have full technical knowledge and artistic ability on this subject.
