Porcelain laminate veneers are prepared in laboratories in the form and at the size at which you and your doctor jointly agree and fixed onto the tooth surface with special adhesives after the trial within a mouth. Although porcelain laminate veneers are too thin, they are resistant to breakages.
What are their disadvantages?
The latest developments in full ceramic restorations have left behind the works of metal supported porcelain.
The porcelains processed on these substructure ceramics produced with maximum sensitivity have provided aesthetics much closer to the natural tooth. Being tissue-friendly, non-brittle and translucent have increased the long-term success of dental aesthetic treatments in the anterior region.
These glass ceramics which are produced by compressing with pressure under heat, are used in the production of Empress, Cerec, Ceram etc. In addition to the recently produced lithium disilicate crystals reinforced with Cad-Cam system and worked with the ceramics such as Empress 2 and E.max, both the front zone aesthetics and the posterior molar region has provided excellent aesthetics.
