Laminate veneers are thin porcelain restorations (0.2-0.7mm) that are cemented to the frontal surface of teeth. When the frontal surface is restored, the desired form, color, size can be displayed, without intervening withthe rest of the healthy tooth hard tissue.
Compared to crowns, laminate veneers don’t need as much, if not no preparation of teeth. The thin porcelain can be as translucent as the enamel itself, therefore it’s the most natural treatment for esthetic dentistry with healthy teeth. If the teeth have no large fillings or caries, previous root canal treatments, laminate veneers are the best choice of esthetic outcome.
Digital or non-digital smile design is mostly provided with laminate veneers.
