How is Lamina Porcelain Veneer Made?
Lamina porcelain veneers are veneers that can be applied with minimal or no abrasion on the teeth, bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth, thin as a leaf and have a transparent appearance. As they are thin and aesthetic, they blend in with the natural appearance of the teeth they are bonded to and become almost invisible. They are usually made to eliminate aesthetic disorders such as fracture, abrasion, discoloration, deformation, especially in the anterior region of the teeth. People who are uncomfortable with the appearance of their teeth can achieve the dental appearance they want with lamina porcelain veneers.
Despite its thin structure that provides the appearance of natural teeth, porcelain lamina veneers are very durable and do not break easily. It is also one of the most ideal treatment methods for patients with mild dental crowding and deformities who do not want to undergo orthodontic treatment.
What is the lamina porcelain veneer treatment process?
One of the most important points in lamina porcelain veneer treatment, which is very easy to apply and has a short treatment time, is to provide the appearance that the patient wants. The patient should be informed at all stages of the treatment and should act in line with the patient’s wishes.
In the first stage of treatment, the patient’s intraoral measurements are taken. Tests called mock-ups are performed in the laboratory on the model prepared according to the impression. When the model obtained is approved by the patient, the preparation of the teeth to be bonded begins. After the patient’s adaptation process is checked with temporary veneers, necessary arrangements are made and the application of real porcelain is started. Porcelain lamina veneers bonded to the teeth with a special adhesive can be used on the same day.
Porcelain lamina veneer treatment is not recommended for people with receding gums, patients who have a habit of clenching their teeth, and people with significant disorders in the jaw structure. Although it is more costly, it is one of the most preferred methods because it meets the aesthetic expectations of the patient and gives the teeth a natural appearance.
