Laminates are thin sheets of composite or ceramic that will be designed according to the needs of each person and the color matching the color of natural teeth.
Laminating is used to correct minor tooth defects such as fractures, inter-teeth spacing, discoloration or tooth height. These thin sheets will sticks to the front surface of the teeth and change the color, shape, size, and height of the teeth.
In general, we have two types of dental laminates that called ceramic and composite laminates. Ceramic laminates are, as the name implies, ceramic, and are more beautiful and durable than composite laminates.
Does the question now arise as to whether the laminates will cause damage to the original teeth or not? In answer to this question, no, if the dentist has enough information and experience in lamination, the teeth will not be harmed. Before installing your dentist, will carefully examine your teeth to make sure your teeth are fit for lamination.
It is impossible to distinguish lamination from a natural tooth because the laminates are made individually for each person and its color is consistent with the color of the natural teeth. Laminates can whiten teeth that are too dark to withstand other methods. To prepare the laminates, the teeth must first be molded and after tooth grinding and mold preparation, laminate should be ready and installed
In Dr. Mehri Ghasemi’s Digital Dental Office, with the uses of digital devices such as CAD / CAM technology we can scan the teeth and their position together. After simulating on the computer, the laminations will be designed by a computer and the dentist. After finishing these steps, the laminates will be printed with 3D printers and ready to be mounted on the teeth. All of these steps will be completed in a very short period and eventually one session. It should also be noted that digital laminates have a longer life span than the traditional method and are more durable and accurate.
