Laminate Veneers Treatment

Laminate veneers treatment is a procedure that requires minimal filing down of the teeth.

Laminate veneers are applied as a thin layer on the intact tooth. This procedure is derived from the Latin word Lamina, which means leaf.

Although the veneers are very thin, they provide the most natural appearance as a cosmetic dental procedure.

It is also known as a prosthesis procedure that protects the remaining tooth structure, since the teeth are only filed down.

How Laminate Veneers Work?

We will apply local anesthesia before we begin with the laminate veneers treatment and filing down your teeth. In this way, we can prevent pain and aches that you may experience during the filing procedure.

The treatment process may vary in accordance with the number of teeth to be veneered and the general condition of the teeth. The treatment process of each patient may vary.

Three sessions may be sufficient for a standard laminate veneers treatment.

As the first step for laminate veneers, we will determine a smile design with you by evaluating your expectations.

Then, we will present you the treatment method and the closest result that can be achieved in line with your expectations.

We will give you local anesthesia in the second session to prevent possible pain and toothaches. In this way, the teeth are filed without any pain and toothache.

We will begin with the filing procedure when the necessary numbness is attained in the mouth. We will take the measurements for the veneers.

After we take the measurements, you will have to wait for a week for the second procedure.

You will need to be careful in using your teeth during this time. 

We will have our last trial after the teeth and laminate veneers are ready. During this trial, we will check the color of the teeth and whether they are comfortable according to the measurements taken.

We will discuss with you the fit of the veneers and if we’re all satisfied with the result, we will begin to attach laminate veneers after a treatment process that will take 2 or 3 hours.

After the bonding process, the laminate veneers treatment is completed.
