Lamina applications, also known as leaf porcelain, are a type of treatment used to create aesthetic color, shape and position differences for the front teeth of the person, thanks to a special bonding technique. This method can be preferred if the patient has enamel disorders, pits, fractures and cavities. The front surface of the teeth for the application are cleaned for smoothness. Measurements are taken from the patient and leaf porcelains are created. Since they are formed at high temperatures, they are very durable.
In our clinic, a few designs suitable for the patient’s mouth structure are made in a computer environment first. The patient is shown and a trial application is made with two of his favorite ones. In the trial application, the patient sees a live copy of the resulting image.
Before the laminates produced in the laboratory are attached, they are approved by making a trial in the patient’s mouth for one last time. If the color and shape are in an aesthetic harmony and approved by the patient and the physician, the bonding process is performed. Thanks to lamina applications that result in a very similar way to natural teeth, people can have the smile they dream of. The purpose of these treatments is to repair only the teeth with damaged anterior surfaces with minimal wear.

Special adhesives are used for bonding. The result is a natural tooth appearance for individuals. This application is often preferred because it’s ideal in terms of aesthetics. While producing leaf porcelain, it is aimed to create a model according to the tooth structure and color. However, if the highest quality materials are used in its construction, the post-treatment period can be quite long.

Lamina that appeal to the eye are an aesthetic application. The use of quality products in its construction is important in terms of this aesthetic appearance. If it is done with care and using quality products, it gives long-lasting and solid results. Considering the opposite, it can lead to irreparable results for patients. For this reason, the dentist who will perform this procedure should definitely be researched and an idea about previous treatment practices should be obtained. After choosing a doctor, the treatment process begins with taking a photograph of the patient’s mouth structure. The first measurements are taken and then the 3D design of the tooth shape is made.
In the second session, determined design is demonstrated to the patient so they can see the end result. Measurement is the shortest session but afterwards comes a process that requires a lot of attention and takes time. Every detail is finely handcrafted. The post-impression session can be seen as the end of the treatment if everything is harmonious and complete, otherwise further measurements are taken. If there are some deficiencies or excesses, it is arranged in that session and it will be completed in the next session. The bonding stage is the most important stage for this process.
