WHAT IS LAMINATED PORCELAIN VENEER?
To solve the aesthetical problems at the anterior region, at which there is not a missing tooth, the fixed prosthetic restorations are used. Specialists have been trying to solve the aesthetic problems, which include the biggest concerns of the patients, with full crowns for many years. However, this is an application that causes a vast amount of material loss in the tooth. Lifting the bigger part of the dental tissue may lead to several problems. Thus, the value of the natural dental tissue has been understood better, and the restorations at which the material loss is minimal are targeted to minimise the permanent damage in the tissue.
HOW IS IT ADMINISTERED?
The restorative materials and the rapid improvements at the adhesive technology make us able to make aesthetical restorations at which the natural dental tissue is preserved. Laminated porcelain veneer is a protective choice for full crowns for improving the appearance of the anterior teeth. In recent years, laminated porcelain veneer has become one of the most popular restorations of dentistry. This is a method that removes the aesthetical problems by changing the colours and the shapes of the teeth. Laminated porcelain veneer, which is prepared within the lab environment by the dentist, is administered to the front side of the tooth with adhesive methods.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?
The administration of the laminated porcelain veneer to the tooth may be done in two sessions at least. The duration of the sessions changes depending on the number of laminated porcelain veneers that will be administered. At the first session, the enamel part of the tooth is corroded around 0.3 – 1.0 millimetre, and it is measured. However, in some cases, there is no need to corrode the tooth. In a next session, the laminated porcelain veneer, which is prepared within the lab environment in accordance with the smile design and the tooth colour of the patient, is administered to the exterior surface of the tooth with the adhesives which has got the similar colour with the tooth.
