The steps to be followed during porcelain laminate veneer tooth manufacturing are as follows:
The patient’s expectations are determined and a porcelain leaf tooth modeling mock up is made in line with these expectations.
The form determined by mock up is applied to the patient with a fluid composite. At this stage, the patient will not encounter any surprises at the end as he can see the form of the finished teeth in his mouth.
After the application, an interview is held with the patient and if the expectations are met, the second step is taken.
Application studies for laminated leaf teeth begin. First, regional anesthesia is applied.
After anesthesia, the necessary arrangements are made on the teeth to be covered with porcelain veneers.
After the arrangements on the teeth are completed, porcelain veneer impressions are taken.
After the actual measurements are transferred to the laboratory, the leaf porcelain tooth production process begins.
The laminate dental veneer, which is manufactured in the laboratory and whose process is completed, is adhered to the teeth with special adhesives in a process that takes approximately 2-3 hours.
Porcelain laminates do not discolour like natural teeth or filling teeth. It is not affected by tea, coffee and bleaching agents. As long as it is cleaned systematically, it remains the same color as the first day, even if used for years.
Since its light transmittance is close to natural teeth, it gives a very natural tooth appearance. Among all the poreless teeth made in the mouth, porcelain laminates are the most aesthetic and wonderful.
During the production of porcelain laminate veneers, only a few elements are abraded from the front surface of the teeth, or there is no need for any abrasion in individuals with short and small teeth. This allows the teeth to have an aesthetic structure without being damaged.
There is no limitation in color selection, the patient can have teeth in as light a color as he/she wishes.
