In Which Situations Is Porcelain Laminate Veneer Applied?

This treatment can be used for many dental problems. The laminate veneer method can be used in cases where your tooth color is very discolored and cannot be corrected, or it can be used for teeth with bad structure and shape. In addition, if there are too many spaces between your teeth and if you have broken teeth, leaf-like dental treatment can be applied to correct these images. Although it is a treatment method that is generally used to make your teeth look beautiful, you can also have laminate veneers in cases where the teeth cannot fully perform their chewing and cutting functions.

How is Laminate Veneer Treatment Performed?

For lamina veneer treatment, first of all, tooth measurements are taken from the patient. The model, which is made by taking the size of the patient's teeth and using special methods, is prepared by modeling with wax according to the exact size of the teeth. After the measurement is taken for the laminate leaf treatment, preparations are made according to the targeted result at the end of the treatment. Our specialist dentists at Dentasel will support you in every way during and after the treatment.

A model is made according to the measurements taken after the preparations. A pattern is determined by applying the model to the person. Then the mold is taken and the porcelains are formed by heat treatment. The laminated veneer created and rehearsed in the patient's mouth is checked. After these processes, the most important issue is the bonding of porcelain. Gluing is the most complex and critical part of the whole job. If it is not done by experts, many problems can arise. In addition to improper seating of the teeth, unwanted and irreversible problems such as gum problems or discoloration of the teeth may occur. For this reason, it is vital that the treatment is carried out by experts and institutions.

Who Is Laminate Veneer Treatment Not Suitable For?

  • Nail biting,
  • biting a pen,
  • Teeth grinding,
  • In people who have habits such as jaw clenching,
  • This treatment is not suitable for people whose lower jaw is anterior and who have malocclusion in their teeth.

If you have a disease that causes the destruction of the tissue of the tooth enamel, the amount and quality of the tissue on the tooth surface will not be sufficient for laminate veneer bonding. In addition, porcelain lamina may be insufficient to completely hide this color in teeth with bad discoloration. In these cases, alternative treatment methods should be considered, since laminate tooth treatment cannot be applied.

Is There Any Loss of Laminate Veneer?

In addition, other similar dental treatments are by design a temporary cosmetic solution. The only disadvantage of this treatment is that it is difficult to change and remove it after it has been done. Laminate veneer is an advantageous and harmless treatment compared to its price.

Veneers also need daily brushing and are almost no different from your other teeth. Without normal daily cleaning, veneers discolor like natural teeth. Proper care and cleaning will maximize the life of any dental veneer.

How Long Does Laminate Veneer Treatment Take?

The treatment is usually completed in 2-3 sessions. This period may vary depending on the number of teeth to be treated and the health status of the teeth. In the first session, no action is taken on the teeth, only the measurement is taken. The appearance, which is planned to be achieved after the laminate veneer, is designed on a model obtained from the tooth size and the mold is prepared for the proofing stage. This process is completed in one session and the session can take up to 1 hour. In the next session, the prepared mold is rehearsed. If this rehearsal goes well, the anterior surfaces of the teeth are treated and a place for the laminate veneer is prepared. There is very little wear during this treatment process. For this reason, pain is mostly not felt. However, if necessary, regional numbing methods can be applied so that the patient does not feel pain. After the necessary operations are performed on the teeth, a new measurement is taken for the laminate leaf. A temporary laminate is adhered to the tooth surface until the day the veneer is adhered. Like this; The possibility of sensitivity in the teeth is prevented. All of these processes can be handled in 2 or 3 sessions.

What are the Differences of Laminated Tooth and Zirconium Tooth Coating?

There are many differences between

Laminate veneer and zirconium veneer. Both treatments have advantages and disadvantages over the other. Laminate veneer is applied only to the anterior surface of the tooth and does not completely cover the tooth. However, zirconium coating surrounds your tooth. These cause some advantages and disadvantages during treatments.

Zirconium is a white solid, similar in color to silver. It is used in many areas thanks to its durable structure against external factors. Zirconium, which is preferred as an infrastructure material in aesthetic dentistry applications due to its color and durability, is a product that stands out in dental treatments due to its easy workability, not damaging your teeth and being more durable. It is often preferred in cases where good results cannot be obtained with filling.

While zirconium is a covering method that surrounds the tooth, laminate veneer treatment is applied only to the front of the teeth. In this treatment method, also known as porcelain veneer adhered to the teeth, plaques of preferred size, color and shape are prepared. This treatment, which stands out as a preventive treatment method, can be preferred for a high-level aesthetic appearance as well as being a permanent treatment. After the tooth measurements are taken completely before the leaf tooth treatment, the person can continue his daily life with temporary teeth. The meticulously prepared leaf porcelains are attached to the patient's teeth in a short time. This treatment method offers long-term use due to its strong adhesion to the teeth.
