How is Laminated Tooth Veneer Treatment Done?Oral, chin and dental checks with preliminary examination and x-ray are performed by a specialist physician. The treatment processes are explained in detail to the patient who has been checked. In the treatment that will take place in the anesthesia environment, the patient does not feel any surgical procedure. Immediately after the application of anesthesia, the dentist applies a rasping with a thickness of 0.1 to 0.3 mm on the tooth surface. Special measurement materials are prepared so that measurement can be taken, your measurement is taken. The measurement taken is sent to the laboratory for the preparation of your laminates in a special laboratory environment. The measurement is introduced to the computer-aided CAD-CAM system. Your computer-assisted aesthetic dental treatment will start within this period. Your personalized laminates prepared by special technological devices are sent to the clinic for rehearsal together with the polishing processes. Although the average time for these procedures is within 2-3 days, the patient is given an appointment for the first rehearsal. The prepared laminates are rehearsed on the patient’s teeth. If there are deficiencies, they are corrected. Immediately after corrected deficiencies, it is shown to the patient so that the color scale can be determined. Immediately after the color scale is determined, the laminates are taken from the patient and sent back to the laboratory environment. Laminates of the selected color scale are applied and placed in the oven to be baked. The prepared laminates are tried in the mouth of the patient so that they can be rehearsed. At the finishing stage, a chemical drug is applied to ensure adhesion between the tooth surface and the laminated porcelain, and it is permanently attached to the patient and the treatment ends. Laminated tooth veneer treatment is recommended to be applied to the anterior teeth. It is not applied to the posterior teeth. There are laminated coating types that require special labor compared to other treatment methods. These ;
- Leaf Porcelain Veneer
- Composite Laminated Veneer
Leaf Porcelain VeneerLeaf porcelain veneer treatment, which is very common and popular among these applications, is the most aesthetic veneer type among the laminated varieties. This method, known as leaf tooth, is produced by technicians who can use computer-aided design in thin layers of 0.2 – 0.6 mm. Leaf porcelains adhered to the front surface of the teeth are perfect for removing the aesthetic defects existing in the original teeth. If the person pays attention to his/her oral and dental health, The life of leaf porcelain can be used for ten or twenty years. It transmits light extremely well. It offers a natural appearance to the patient. Due to its glossy surface, it never stains.
Composite Laminated VeenerComposite laminate veneer, which is another aesthetic application, is one of the aesthetic dental treatment methods applied to correct the color of the main tooth, its position or deformities that have occurred. Laminates produced in the laboratory are applied on the teeth in a clinical environment. Composite laminated veneer, also known as boding in dentistry, is a less costly but effective treatment method in the treatment of aesthetic smile design, compared to leaf dental treatment to treat damage and deformations on the tooth surface. The difference between composite laminate veneer and leaf porcelain veneer is;
- In composite laminate veneer, less tooth enamel is filed.
- Less rehearsals. It can usually be treated with a single session.
- Compared to leaf porcelain veneer, it is more economical.
- If damaged, it is simpler to repair and fix.
