What is the laminate veener?
Laminate veneers are commonly used dental veneers. Porcelain laminate veneers, which have become popular especially since the beginning of the 2000’s, can provide an excellent aesthetic appearance with conservative methods and without much abrasion of the tooth tissue.
Laminate veneer is a process that; removes the color changes which distort the natural white of the teeth, fixes minor deformities that occur in the form of teeth, and eliminates deformation.
Unlike commonly known, laminates are not a type of porcelain. When laminate porcelain is used, it should be understood that the preparations to be made on the teeth will be carried out in a conservative way, with only minor abrasions of the necessary parts to complement the aesthetic with the damaged areas.
Although it is stated in many sources that laminate veneers can be done without any cutting, these cases do not exceed 30% of all cases in order to adjust the end point of the gum and obtain a certain thickness. This means that if necessary, the physician will make some corrections and abrasions, even if these are small ones.
