Everyone wants to have healthy and bright smiles. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to have desired beautiful smiles because of the problems such as yellowed tooth enamel, misshapen teeth and teeth that are too seperate. Thanks to porcelain laminate veneer treatments, it is possible to gain healthy and beautiful smiles regardless of the dental condition. Porcelain laminate, one of the most effective applications of aesthetic dentistry, corrects the tooth alignment and gives a snow-white smile aesthetics. Also you can choose the teeth color with your doctor.
What is Porcelain Laminate Veneer?
Porcelain laminate veneer is a material that is adhered to the tooth surface by imitating the original tooth with its own special adhesives. Healthy and white smiles with porcelain laminate veneers offer us a happier life. The material used gives natural results as it has high tooth compatibility and light transmittance.
How is Porcelain Laminate Veneer Made?
The quality of the material to be selected for porcelain laminate veneer and the experience of the doctor who will apply it are directly proportional to the result. The better the quality of the material and the work done by a specialist, the more flawless the result will be. Laminate process does not consist of a single stage. The first stage of the procedure is a general dental examination. Thus, the suitability of the application is tested.
Once it is decided that the teeth are suitable for porcelain laminate veneers, first a photo is taken and then impressions are taken for three-dimensional modeling. At the next appointment, the new individually designed laminates are rehearsed, and how they will look, whether there are any errors and whether there is a need for revision are evaluated before the procedure begins.
The fixing may be the longest part of the procedure. Dentists show a high level of precision during these stages to ensure perfect results. In the stage after the rehearsal, that is, in the fixing stage, new teeth and new smiles are achieved. The result is the same as the work seen in the rehearsal, there is no error or deviation.
To Whom Can This Procedure Be Applied?
- Those with fractures in their teeth
- Those with discolored, darkened or stained teeth
- Those with curvature in the tooth structure
- Those whose interdental spaces are normally more open
For those who do not have favorable gum health but experience the above problems, gum care is first performed and the gums are restored to their former health and then porcelain laminate is applied.
In porcelain laminate treatment, tooth shaving is done most of the time, in some cases it is not needed because of the natural shape of the teeth. With proper dental care, porcelain laminates always look healthy and do not cause problems in eating and drinking.
