Laminate veneer, also known as leaf porcelain, is a thin layer of veneer on the front surface of the tooth. It is one of the most protective prosthesis applications that are studied by making a small file on the tooth. In laminated veneer, the teeth are worked one by one. All necessary treatments for oral health must be completed before laminate coating is applied. And your dentist will make sure of that.
If you have dark teeth,
If you want to have more beautiful smile,
If your teeth are apart,
In cases where teeth whitening is not enough,
If you have a problem after a previous root canal treatment,
If your teeth are damaged in braces treatment,
If you say that the shape and direction of the teeth should improve a little, you can lay laminate veneer.
If the patient has nail biting habit or jaw disorder, laminate veneer is not recommended.
However, your dentist will offer you the most appropriate method according to your complaint.
First of all, your dentist will be in contact with you and evaluate your expectations from the treatment.
Informs you about the post-treatment situation by modeling according to your oral health and general health status.
A rasping is performed on your teeth within the selected plan. The laminated area to be adhered is cleaned and prepared for the next process.
The teeth under treatment are measured for the veneers and a period of time is waited for the sensitivity to pass. Depending on the condition of the person, but after a period of about one week, the coatings are made. After the approval of the dentist and the person undergoing treatment, the bonding process is started.
Laminate veneer is a treatment method that is frequently applied especially in terms of aesthetics. Since the front surface of the teeth to be treated is filed in a very thin layer, the procedure is carried out without damaging the tooth enamel. In addition, the tooth made on implant treatments can be studied using the laminate technique. Since the laminated tooth will be more resistant to discoloration, you can have teeth in the color you want for many years.
In addition to regular brushing, mouthwash and dental floss should be used in daily oral care.
If there is a habit of clenching teeth at night, a mouth plate should be used.
Hard food should not be plucked with the front teeth.
