Especially problems in the anterior teeth can cause people to hesitate to smile and have self-confidence problems. You can eliminate this problem with an aesthetic laminate coating, which offers a fast, reliable and healthy solution.
What is Dental Lamina?
Aesthetic Lamina is the process of connecting porcelain veneers by thinning 0.3 – 0.7 mm on the front surfaces of the teeth. This process is applied mainly to the teeth in the anterior group and provides an aesthetic tooth structure.
When is it applied?

How is Dental Lamina Applied?
Before applying dental Lamina, caries in the patient's teeth are treated, and the appropriate oral environment is provided by cleaning the tartars. After these preliminary procedures, the patient's mouth measurements are taken with the precision measurement method. A model is prepared according to these measurements, and after the approval of this model, the preparation of the teeth begins.
First of all, the dentist checks the compatibility with the temporary veneers. Laminas are fixed to the teeth by using a special application adhesive for this process. In case of any problem, necessary corrections are made, and authentic porcelain pieces are produced.
