In such cases, alternative aesthetic procedures such as full ceramic or zirconium veneers can be considered. We can apply lamina treatment in cases of clenching that did not cause wear on the teeth. However, together with joint examination, these patients can be recommended to use night plates after porcelain lamina treatments or botox procedures to the massater muscle.

It is the least interfered with the tooth among the aesthetic dental treatment options applied today. Only 0.3 – 0.7 mm abrasion is made from the tooth surface, which is often too small to be noticed with the naked eye. Therefore, considering the result and the intervention to the tooth, the damage to the tooth is negligible.

It is unthinkable to laminate on diseased gums or decayed teeth. First of all, the goal is to restore the health of the tissues. In our patients with gum disease, first of all, appropriate treatments are performed for the gums and the gums are expected to heal. Depending on the destruction of the tissues, this period may be 1-4 weeks. If there is no symmetry between the gums, if there is incompatibility, it is useful to wait 1-2 weeks if possible after the gingival levels of the teeth are equalized with the procedure called gingivectomy and then continue the procedures.

Along with the developing technology, there have been great developments in the adhesive systems that we stick porcelain laminates to the teeth today. Laminas that are adhered in accordance with the rules by using these systems do not experience a problem such as falling.

The same care we apply to natural teeth also applies to porcelain laminates. In addition to effective brushing, cleaning with dental floss and using mouthwash are indispensable for care. In addition, it is necessary to go to the dentist every 6 months.

Although laminates are made of extremely strong and durable materials, if care is not taken, nail biting, pen biting, accident, blow, clenching, etc. can occur. In some cases, cracks or fractures may occur in porcelain laminates as in natural teeth. In these cases, these problems can be eliminated with minor corrections or a new one can be made instead.

Porcelain laminates are not colored by factors such as tea, coffee and cigarettes.

With proper oral care and routine controls, they can be used for years without any problems. Do not bite into hard objects or shelled foods. In the presence of a problem such as clenching, physician control is essential. Hot-cold sensitivity can be seen immediately after the treatment, but this will end in 1-2 weeks.
