Porcelain Laminate Veneers (also known as dental laminates) are thin protective “porcelain” veneers that are layered over the front of your teeth.
Since Porcelain Laminate Veneers are roughly ½ mm tooth reduction, they are not considered a reversible form of treatment. Another Porcelain Laminate treatment is Ultra-Thin Porcelain Laminate Veneers that don’t require shooting and drilling.
Porcelain Laminate Veneers are perhaps the most aesthetic family dentistry method to create a more pleasant and beautiful smile.
They require a minimal amount of tooth reduction (approximately 0.5 mm) and are therefore more conservative restorations than crowns. Porcelain veneers allow us to change tooth position, shape, size and color. They are not the only alternative for all aesthetic abnormalities, but they are truly a remarkable restoration when they are the dental service of choice.
WHAT ARE PORCELAIN LAMINATE COATINGS USED FOR?
The main purpose of treating with Porcelain Laminate Veneers is to improve the appearance of your teeth. Some of the primary indications for Laminate Veneers are discolored teeth, worn/distorted/broken teeth, poor tooth alignment or misaligned teeth. Porcelain Laminate Veneers are usually determined by patient selection.
HOW DO PORCELAIN LAMINATE VENEERS WORK?
Porcelain Laminate Veneers adhere to your teeth with a special tooth bonding process, in which a strong dental bond, a dental composite-tooth enamel bond is formed. This process bonds the Porcelain Veneer to the tooth Enamel, giving a flexible and long-lasting result.
WILL PORCELAIN COATING BREAK?
Porcelain Laminate Veneers can withstand all the wear and tear you have created on them. Porcelain is actually brittle, but when firmly bonded to your teeth and reinforced by the tooth structure, it creates a very strong and durable surface. This is like trying to bend a sheet of paper laid on flat concrete by hitting it with a hard object. Concrete prevents the paper from bending.
SOME REASONS TO HAVE PORCELAIN LIMINATE VENEER ARE:
Porcelain Laminate Veneers may be a good option for your dental restoration if your teeth are slightly worn, have small chips/pits, or have fairly minor abnormalities (fixed lateral incisors). Porcelain Laminate Veneers are an excellent dental option if the front of your teeth is defective or damaged enough to warrant this dental restoration process.
Dental composite fillings with a white beginning may change color over time. The ceramic surface of Porcelain Laminate Floorings provides significant flexibility, which often leads to long-lasting and visually pleasing results.
