Porcelain Lamina are porcelain leaves (0.3 - 0.7 mm) that are affixed to the front surfaces of the teeth. Laminates, whose light transmittance imitates natural teeth, are the most aesthetic treatment that can correct the shape and color of teeth in a very short time.
While applying Porcelain Laminate, much less enamel tissue is abraded than that which is cut in classical porcelain crowns.
Today, Porcelain Laminate can be applied to the upper jaw teeth without cutting.
The treatment time is very short. If the patient does not have gums or teeth that require root canal treatment, laminates can be applied within 5-6 days.
Porcelain Laminate can be applied to people who do not like the shape of their teeth. It can be applied to people with advanced tooth discoloration in the anterior region (tetracycline discoloration, advanced yellowing, etc.).
It can be applied to people who have gaps between their teeth. It can be applied to people with large and discolored fillings in the front teeth. It is applied to people whose front teeth are broken or worn. This application can be applied to patients who have no tooth deficiency and who have not had porcelain restorations before. Porcelain Laminate can be applied to people with good gum health. It should be applied to people with bad gum health after gingival health is restored.View More
Oral care recommendations for Porcelain Laminate are identical to those for natural teeth. Effective tooth brushing should be done twice a day. The toothbrush should be held at an inclination of 45 degrees and massage movement should be applied at the tooth-gum border with 7-8 circular movements.
Porcelain Laminates do not fall off when glued with today's adhesives by an experienced physician. Porcelain Laminate applications have a life span of 10-20 years if they are made correctly and used with care. Receding gums or disease may shorten this period. If a small break occurs in the porcelain laminate, it can be repaired with white fillings in the mouth without removing the laminate.
Porcelain Laminates are stain-proof due to their structure and do not turn yellow with good oral care unless there is an excess of tea, coffee and smoking.View More
