LAMINATES AND VENEERS

Smile Designing

Laminates and Veneers are a boon to cosmetic dentistry and are composed of porcelain or ceramic or a composite material that gives a natural and aesthetic appearance. They are placed over the natural teeth and protect them from decay and improve the smile. They enhance the aesthetic of an anterior tooth.

There are many benefits of using laminates. When teeth whitening procedures fail or aren’t effective because some intrinsic stains like fluoride stains or stains from any chemical are not removed while simple whitening. So we can place dental laminate over the natural tooth to provide an appealing smile. Laminates can also be used over the broken or fractured tooth; they are used to close the gaps to the tooth, to cover diastema. So dental laminates have many advantages and are very useful in cosmetic dentistry.

There are different types of dental laminates like composite laminate that are less expensive and can be effectively used for 5-7 years. The second one is porcelain laminate that has more extended durability of 10-20 years.

The second option for dazzling smiles is dental veneers, and they are a flexible oral health solution that is highly effective and can blend in with surrounding teeth. Veneers are comparatively thicker than laminates and are used to cover large gaps. The teeth are shaved, or grooves are created on the tooth surface for the attachment of veneers. Veneers require alteration in tooth shape and structure. This poses a problem because the tooth’s natural protection is removed and the only thing left to protect it is the veneer. There are two different types of Veneers available, they are zirconia and Emax Veneers. Emax veneers are a type of porcelain veneers that are made up of lithium disilicate glass ceramic. The most significant advantage is that it is translucent, making it more natural and aesthetic and they are lighter and thinner than porcelain veneers.

How to Decide Between the two Types of Treatments

If the patient complains of crooked teeth or larger gaps, the best treatment option available is veneer. Still, if the chief complaints are discoloration ,a minor diastema, we suggest trying dental laminates. Dental laminates are also usually more expensive than porcelain veneers. But the decision ultimately depends upon the patient, and they can choose wisely according to cost, budget, personal needs and other factors.
