What Are Laminate Veneers?

Laminate veneers (or dental laminates) are extremely thin coatings applied to the front side of the teeth. Mostly made of porcelain, their main purpose is to counteract aesthetic problems. Laminate veneer treatment Istanbul is made by best methods in our clinic. They contribute to correcting common ones such as stubborn tooth discolorations, gaps, and some forms of misalignment. Thanks to their wafer-thin surface, they don’t require major changes in the tooth size or structure prior to the intervention. So in most cases, they ensure the overall preservation of the original teeth. Most patients are very satisfied with the end result. For instance, the way laminate veneers reflect light is remarkably life-like. This is a bonus aspect that increases their highly natural-looking appearance even more.

What are the Advantages of Laminate Veneers?

  • With very little intervention, a healthy and natural appearance is reinstated in a short time,

  • It is enough to open a small slot on your tooth (even if it is not always necessary),

  • Laminates are manufactured from durable, strong materials that, mainly, retain their colour,

  • Giving teeth the desired aesthetic characteristics – without spoiling their natural appearance – is possible only with laminate veneer. It is possible to give your teeth an excellent appearance which requires none or very little interference with the original tooth. In fact, the amount removed from your teeth is limited to 0.3-1.0 mm in thickness.

  • The laboratory stage of the treatment is only four to eight days, though it may take an additional three to four weeks for your lips to adapt to this new appearance. We recommend that patients do lip exercises and read about the procedure during this adaptation stage. At the end of this stage, patients can smile brightly and comfortably with confidence, showing off revitalized teeth that look completely natural and are completely integrated with the face.

  • An impression of your teeth, which you are not happy with, can be taken and designed. In other words, we can demonstrate you the changes that will take place before the treatment commences.

  • The colour will remain stable due to external factors such as coffee, tea, cigarettes.

  • As a material, porcelain is fragile. But when it is completely bonded onto enamel, its ability to withstand strain and stress strengths rise considerably. For example, it is not possible to remove the bonded veneer from the tooth’s surface. It can only be removed from the tooth’s surface by a special diamond-tipped drill.

Who Can Get Zirconia Crowns?

Zirconium crown can be applied to anyone who has enough abutment teeth or meets implant surgery requirements.

Does The Color of The Laminate Tooth Change?

Natural teeth become stained over time because enamel is porous. It allows tiny particles, including pigments from foods, beverages, and tobacco, to sneak inside of it and cause discoloration. While porcelain looks like natural tooth enamel, it does not share its porous nature. In fact, porcelain is totally nonporous — just like glass. Pigments simply slide off of it.

Therefore, after you and your dentist choose the color for your veneers and they are custom-crafted to your specifications, the porcelain will never change color. That is one of the reasons why most cosmetic dentists recommend veneers rather than dental bonding to patients who want to make over their smile. The dental bonding material can become stained with consistent exposure to things like red wine and coffee.
