Having a beautiful smile is essential for anyone, regardless of their age, profession or gender. For individuals with cracked, crooked, broken teeth or colour differences, porcelain laminate veneers are an excellent solution. The application of laminate veneers involves the placement of porcelain leaflets on the front surface of the tooth, with minimal filing down of the tooth itself. This protective procedure is highly effective and does not involve the use of metal.

Porcelain veneers offer an ideal alternative to traditional crowns, as they allow for the modification of tooth colour, shape and size, while maintaining a more conservative approach. Additionally, porcelain veneers are highly effective in correcting gaps between teeth, commonly known as diastema.

The Porcelain Veneer Treatment Process

The first step is a consultation with the dentist to discuss the desired outcome of the treatment, evaluate the patient’s needs, and determine the appropriate treatment options. Tooth impressions are taken, and photographs of the teeth and face are captured.

During the second session, the teeth are prepared by removing approximately half a millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface under local anaesthesia. An impression is taken, and the laminates are typically ready to be applied within one week. The final step involves cementing the laminates onto the teeth using special cementations, a process that takes approximately two hours.

The Advantages of Laminated Veneers

The treatment period is relatively short.

Minimal abrasion on the tooth surface.

The porcelain surface is highly resistant to coffee and cigarette stains.

Porcelain has excellent light transmittance, resulting in natural-looking teeth.

Porcelain veneers provide superior gingival compatibility and protection compared to porcelain crowns, promoting good oral hygiene.

A customized 3D model is prepared to allow patients to preview their final appearance before treatment.

The Disadvantages of Laminated Veneers

The procedure requires precise clinical and laboratory work.

Individuals with clenching/grinding habits or bruxism should inform their dentist.

Patients may experience sensitivity to hot and cold immediately following treatment, which is reversible.

Hard foods should not be broken with laminate veneers, and care should be taken to protect the laminates.
