Dental laminates procedure

Dental laminate, which is sometimes also called veneer, is a thin veneer that is the same color as the tooth and is designed to improve the beauty of the smile and the overall appearance of the person. When small pieces of laminate are placed on the teeth, they change the color, shape, size, or length of the teeth to the person's desired condition. In addition to aesthetic benefits, laminates also have other benefits, such as increasing the strength of the teeth compared to tooth enamel, and by covering misalignment and other tooth defects, they make the row of teeth appear neat and uniform.

Laminates can be made of porcelain or resin composite materials. Porcelain dental laminates resist stains better than resin composites. Some people prefer porcelain veneers because they are more resistant to stains and their light-reflecting properties are closer to natural teeth. You should consult your dentist about choosing the most suitable veneer material for your teeth.



Types of dental laminates

Dental laminates are classified into two types: composite veneer and ceramic laminate. The type of dental composite laminate is more popular due to the choice of color type and its small thickness (usually 0.5 mm) and also the lack of need for tooth sharpening. Among the other advantages of composite laminate, we can mention the modification of the smile design and its shaping according to the physics of the face. You can also take advantage of tooth restoration services that are easily performed by a specialist.

Dental ceramic laminate or porcelain veneer, the price of which is relatively higher than the composite type, in most cases it needs to be sharpened and sometimes shaped, and it is usually made in the laboratory, but it has more variety in terms of choosing the type of material and transparency and of course its beautiful appearance. Because of its quality and durability, this type of laminate is better for people.
