Laminate veneers

Laminate veneers in Turkey are a dental veneer treatment thinner than modern dental veneers. Laminate veneers are amazing dental restorations used in smile makeover treatments. Patients with slight positional issues and low to moderate bite issues can be suitable for laminate veneers. Staining and discoloration issues are easily resolved within a week. Laminate veneers integrate well with soft and hard tissues which means the body readily accepts laminate treatment. Laminates are preferred for their durability, aesthetic and longevity.

What is a Laminate veneer?

Laminate veneers in Turkey are a thinner veneer type, applied to the front of teeth at approximately 0.3mm to 0.5mm thickness. There is a light shaving preparation to the front of teeth that could be from 0.3mm to 0.7mm. Depending on the angles and shape of the teeth. Laminate veneers are a great option to enhance and restore a natural looking smile with minimal prep within a week. Laminates are able to be coloured and still keep a translucency that resembles natural tooth enamel.

Laminate veneers are colour-lasting and durable for their lifetime. Patients can expect up to 10-15 years use of their quality smile. Due to the minimal prep, patients are able to easily replace laminate veneers when the time comes.

How is Laminate Veneer performed?

Laminate veneers in Turkey require a light shaving preparation between 0.3mm to 0.7mm of the natural teeth. Laminates differ from a dental veneer in their thickness and shaving preparation. Generally a dental veneer will include 0.7mm to 1.2mm of shaving prep. So laminates are a great option for patients looking to reduce the amount of damage to their natural tooth enamel.

The doctor uses a dental polymer to take impressions of the patients jaws to produce a 3D model. Which is then scanned using CAD technology to upload a virtual 3D model. The dental technician uses the 3D virtual model and the doctors specifications to digitally create a designer smile. Once the smile is digitally created and tested for functionality, it is then milled from blocks of porcelain using the latest CAM technology.

Using the rehearsal method, doctors are able to trail fit the laminate veneers without permanently applying them to test for aesthetic and function. Once the doctor is happy with any slight modification the laminate veneers are then installed by the doctor by use of a specialised dental adhesive known to last at least a decade. The doctor ensures the fit of the veneer is made perfect to your gum line and positioned with the correct parameters of a functional bite. The laminate veneer smile makeover is now complete and the patient is ready to smile with a new found confidence.

What cases are best suited for laminate veneer treatment?

Patients with open bite, and class 1 & 2 bite are suitable for laminate veneers and have a lower risk of breakages and fractures compared to other bite issues and so are more suited for treatment. Patients with diastema (gaps between teeth), discolorations, stained teeth, slightly rotated teeth, damaged enamel, uneven smile line, small chippins and broken teeth. Anyone that isn’t quite happy with their smile but still have a healthy dental status.

Who is not suitable for dental lumineers treatment?

Laminate veneers are purely an aesthetic restoration option and so patients with certain conditions would be better suited to have crowns or veneers. Patients with cavities and other damages to the back side of their teeth could consider crowns, as the laminates only protect the front of teeth. Patients that present these varying bite issues: a deep bite, class 3 bite, crossbite, and straight bite (when bottom and top teeth meet at the tip of the teeth). With these bite issues, the laminate veneers have a high probability to clash resulting in breakages and fractures. Patients with a grinding habit, extremely rotated teeth, lots of cavities, and poor oral hygiene are not very suitable for this type of veneer treatment.

If the patient took tetracycline medications as a child, their teeth are heavily stained and would be better suited to have dental crowns.

What are the benefits of laminate veneers

The benefit of having laminate veneers in Turkey is the cost-effective minimal prep design. Small orthodontic issues can be resolved and the smile is completely renewed while still feeling like these are your natural teeth. Other benefits include:

  • Biocompatibility: The reaction of dental adhesive and laminate porcelain material against the natural tooth and gingiva is minimal.
  • Strength: Porcelain has a slight scratch-resistance
  • Thinness: Laminate veneers are 0.3mm-0.5mm in thickness which makes them feel very natural.
  • Longevity: The expected lifetime of laminate veneers is 10-15 years.
  • Translucency: The porcelain has great translucency replicating natural enamel. So laminates feel incredibly natural.
  • Enamel replacement: Enamel can become damaged by foods, beverages, and medicines. Laminate veneers give a thin protective surface from future damage.
  • Cavity-proof: The porcelain surface is slippery, so bacteria and plaque have a hard time sticking to the veneer.
  • Minimal prep: only 0.3mm to 0.7mm of the tooth prepared for treatment.

Although the laminate veneer is cavity-proof, the natural tooth underneath is not. Bacteria and plaque can attach between the gums and from behind the tooth. The back-side of the tooth is not covered by veneer so proper dental hygiene is still required to avoid cavities.

What are the disadvantages of laminate veneers?

Laminate veneers are made of porcelain which has a translucency attribute. Deep staining and discolouration can show through and so the dental veneer would be a better suited treatment.

Cheap materials and laxed laboratories lead to poor quality laminate veneers. Dentares uses only high quality porcelain material and we use our own private laboratory. In this way, we are able to control the quality of every step of the manufacturing process.

Laminate veneers will need replacing within 10-15 years. With the minimal prep, laminates are simple to replace without damaging the natural tooth.

What is the difference between laminate veneers and other veneer treatments?

Laminate veneers are mistakenly interchangeably used to describe other veneer treatments such as a dental veneer or dental lumineer. Laminate veneers are a minimal prep veneer. Whereas the lumineer is a non-prep veneer and thinner. Dental veneer can be confused with the laminate veneer. However the dental veneer is made up to 1.2mm thick and zirconia and emax are additional materials to be used. Laminate veneer is made from porcelain and milled by the CAD/CAM method similarly to the dental veneer method.

How long do laminate veneers last?

Laminate veneers in Turkey are a great option for patients looking to improve their smile. With minimal prep, laminates are a popular option when patients don’t wish to consider crowns or dental veneers for a smile makeover treatment. The life expectancy of laminate veneers can be up to 10-15 years. Provided that patients follow the maintenance and dental hygiene techniques recommended by the doctor. Greying is not an issue over time either, as the laminate veneer is metal-free.

How do I take care of my laminate veneers?

After laminate veneer treatment in Turkey, patients should use a soft-bristled brush or square headed electric toothbrush. Frequent brushing 3 times a day after meals, regular flossing and use of non-alcoholic mouthwash is the recommended standard for personal oral hygiene. Patients should schedule regular check ups with their dentist every 6 months for a deep clean to get rid of hard to reach plaque and tartar. Be aware about the onset of sensitivity. This could be a warning about forming cavities. Increase oral hygiene practices to see a reduction in sensitivity. If it persists, it’s best to see a dentist.

Are laminate veneers good for oral health?

Laminate veneers are a fantastic option to correct minor bite issues and reduce the risk of cavities forming on the fronts of a patient’s smile. Patients will often increase their dental hygiene practices after laminate veneer smile makeover treatment because they are now proud of their smile, and they wish to protect them. For these reasons, dental lumineers in Turkey can be quite healthy for oral health.

How long does laminate veneers treatment take?

Laminate veneer treatment is completed within a week. Only 0.5mm of tooth material is prepared and our private laboratory is equipped with 3 CAM machines. The dentist spends time with the patient to understand their needs, complete tooth preparations, take measurements and impressions for a 3D model. By day 3, the first rehearsal for laminate veneers is trialled and the patient gives their feedback and the doctor makes slight adjustments to the laminates. By day 5 the doctor is able to use special adhesive to join the laminates to the appropriate teeth.
