Laminates  are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory.  They are bonded onto the front of teeth like a false nail to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Laminates can completely reshape your teeth and smile.  They can often be alternatives to the crowns  in treating many dental conditions for aesthetic reason.

The  porcelain laminates can be made in a lighter color, so that the laminated teeth can be whiter than before.

  The laminates  are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile but as  with most dental restorations,  they are not forever  and may someday need replacement.  

Porcelain laminates  are stain resistant.They  can last for many years like all well glazed porcelaine restorations.They really are a perfect option for;

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

The laminate treatment usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure.  The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the laminate.  A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.

On the second visit the teeth will be cleaned with special liquids to achieve a durable bond.  Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and laminate and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.

Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will make  the life of your new laminates longer.
