Porcelain Lamina

Lamina means leaf in Latin. It is a technique that is applied by thinning only 0.3-0.7 mm of the front surface of the teeth with or without cutting the teeth or damaging the healthy tooth tissue. This is the process where porcelain dental lamina is placed to the thinned area.

What are the cases that dental porcelain laminates can solve?

  • If bleaching is not able to achieve the desired whiteness to the discoloured teeth,
  • Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped,
  • Teeth with gaps between them (Diastema closure),
  • Teeth that are worn down,
  • In fixing old fillings whose colour and structure are damaged,
  • It can be a cosmetic alternative (as an alternative to orthodontic treatment) to treat crowded and curved teeth.

The Steps of Porcelain Laminate Treatment

In the first session, the measures of your teeth are taken, and the resulting model is studied. Then the teeth are abraded, and the measures are taken again with a sensitive measure. At your next appointment, the veneers are applied to your teeth.
