Lamina (leaf porcelain)

In recent years, with the increase in aesthetic expectations, the interest in lamina porcelain has also increased. It is now possible to have a whiter and one’s own smile. in public
Thanks to Lamina teeth, also known as “Leaf Porcelain”, an unaesthetic smile is no longer a destiny. Ceramic laminates, which are applied to provide perfect aesthetics, are a preventive treatment method for disorientated, discolored, traumatized, broken or worn, split anterior teeth. They are used to change the color, form and position of the anterior teeth. In addition, lamina treatment increases the self-confidence of the person with a more beautiful smile.

They can often be preferred because of their tissue compatibility, wear resistance, color stability and aesthetic superiority similar to natural teeth. Due to their glassy structure, they transmit the light widely and regularly as well as reflecting it widely and radially. In this way, they have the potential to show the light transmittance and reflection properties of the natural tooth. It is almost impossible to distinguish laminates from natural teeth.
A layer of 0.3-0.7 mm is removed from the front surface of the tooth. Impressions are taken, teeth are prepared from wax on the model obtained. After the candles are arranged according to the patient’s wishes, the ideal smile is achieved. It is ensured that the laminates, which are prepared in perfect harmony, are integrated with the tooth by using a special adhesive.
In case of discolored teeth, porcelain thickness should be increased and whitening should be applied beforehand in order to prevent bad reflection of the underlying tooth color and to provide an ideal aesthetic.
After the laminates are attached, the most important point is the oral care of the patient. If oral care is not good, the aesthetics obtained will soon deteriorate due to the bad appearance of the gums.
In lamina restorations, the success of the laboratory is as important as the knowledge and skills of the physician.
