PORCELAIN LAMINATE

Porcelain laminate veneer, also known as leaf-coated laminate among the public, is a dental treatment modality where the dental tissue is subject to 0.4-0.5 mm abrasion or no abrasion procedure.

WHO ARE ELIGIBLE FOR PORCELAIN LAMINATES? WHEN ARE THEY REQUIRED?

  • Dental discoloration
  • Dental deformations in shape and size
  • Gaps between teeth (diastema)
  • Slight misalignments
  • White spots associated with fluorosis
  • Almost any case with aesthetic concerns

WHO ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR PORCELAIN LAMINATES?

  • Excessive tooth clenching (bruxism)
  • Excessive misalignment
  • Patients with jaw problems
  • Major cavities
  • Since it cannot be implemented in the form of bridge, porcelain laminate is not feasible in tooth gaps

STEPS OF THE PORCELAIN LAMINATE PROCEDURE

  • Before beginning the process, a mock-up is performed upon the patient’s request.
  • After implementing the temporary mock-up received from the technician, final decision is made on the size, length, etc. based on patient expectations.
  • Where gingival leveling is required, gum treatment is completed before the dental abrasion procedures.
  • Once the gums are recovered, abrasion and measurement is done.
  • Laminates received from the technician are implemented.

BENEFITS OF PORCELAIN LAMINATES

  • It offers the closest aesthetics to natural teeth.
  • A very slight abrasion is performed.
  • Owing to its shiny surface, no tea or coffee spots.
  • It offers a shorter treatment period since there are no intermediate rehearsals like in other crown materials.

HOW LONG DO PORCELAIN LAMINATES LAST?

With proper oral care and regular visits to the dentist, porcelain laminates can remain intact for many years to come. There is little to no detachment since porcelain laminates are attached using a very strong adhesive.
