Laminate veneer crowns show some differences from other prothetic applications in terms of application.
This treatment is applied in the visible parts of the teeth as a result of a certain amount of abrasion according to the need or demands. In other words, in some cases there is no need to abrasion on the teeth or sometimes abrasions can be made at different parts of teeth.
Since this treatment was done as a result of aesthetic needs, the material used in the treatment is determined for aesthetic outcome. The most common use is the glass ceramic. This material is very close to the natural tooth structure in terms of light transmittance.
Laminate veneer crown application is a very gentle application. The first thing that makes this treatment gentle is the aim of achieving a high level of aesthetics with very fine ceramics.
