What is dental lamination and what is the aftercare?

A toothbrush is a coating of toothpaste or white material that is placed on the tooth to correct the shape, form, color and length of teeth, or to close the gap between teeth and to treat broken teeth. These days it is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments. Special conditions are required for this type of veneer and it should be the maxillary and gingival conditions that are recognized by the dentist. It is not suitable for this treatment if the patient has a jaw problem or gum resection.

After the treatment is completed, you can easily eat without straining the lower teeth and the laminated teeth. The laminated teeth are extremely transparent and you can safely use your teeth to trim and shape your teeth. Today this is one of the best cosmetic treatments.

Types of dental lamination

Ceramic or dental slab has a beautiful appearance, is more color stable and more resistant to composite laminates. These types of coatings are manufactured in the laboratory after molding. The cost is higher with this method than with a composite.

In composite lamination, the tooth is shaved less than the ceramic laminate, and even when the tooth condition is ideal, this procedure is performed without the tooth. The tooth surface is shiny and the light passing through the teeth is much more than ceramic. This type has a greater variety of colors and is also cheaper than ceramics.
