A very common cosmetic dental treatment, veneers/ laminates are popular to enhance your smile. They are shell like layers that are bonded on front surface of teeth for smile makeover.
Laminates are a little thinner than veneers. They can be made of composite or porcelain. Composite veneers can be used for only mild esthetic issues, while ceramic/ porcelain veneers are thicker, so are stronger.
When to give veneers / laminates?
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Mild to moderate cases of reshaping of teeth
  • Stained teeth where stains are not removed by scaling or bleaching.
  • Broken or damaged teeth.
What are the benefits?
  • Minimal preparation of tooth enamel

What is the care to be taken with laminates/ veneers?
