Questions and answers

How long do porcelain laminate teeth last – porcelain leaf teeth?

Porcelain laminates can be used for many years if good oral hygiene is observed. Thanks to new technologies and the cad-cam system, leaf porcelain can be produced with only 0.3 mm thickness and maximum light transmittance and resistance. Thus also the aesthetic aspect is maximised. They are very resistant to color changes and breakage. To prolong their life it is necessary to observe good oral hygiene, avoid very hard foods and let go of habits such as teeth grinding and nail biting.

What is the difference between porcelain laminate (leaf porcelain) and porcelain veneers?

Porcelain laminates are porcelain veneers with a thickness of 0.2 – 0.5mm, which is much thinner than ordinary porcelain veneers. They are applied with a special glue directly on the outer surface of the teeth without or only by cutting them slightly.

In porcelain veneers, the tooth surface must be cut by approximately 2 mm, after which the measurements are made. Porcelain veneers cover the entire surface of the tooth. However, porcelain laminates only cover the anterior surface of the tooth.

Which Cases are Suitable for Porcelain Laminate Teeth – Porcelain Leaf Teeth?

Porcelain laminates (porcelain leaf) are a good indicator in cases where the lengths of the teeth are shortened or the enamel is abraded. Cracked and broken enamels can be covered by leaf porcelain and because it has high qualitative light transmission they will look like natural teeth.

In cases with tetracycline stains, in other words antibiotic stains, teeth whitening (whitening) is unfortunately not possible. In these cases, porcelain laminate veneer can be used to cover these stains – leaf porcelain can be used.

Whitened teeth may need to be cleaned again over time due to tea, coffee, and smoke stains. Patients who want permanent whiteness may prefer laminated leaf porcelain.

Patients with misaligned teeth, those who do not want to undergo orthodontic treatment or those who do not have time for orthodontic braces may prefer porcelain laminates to achieve a beautiful, white smile. Leaf porcelain is also often used for covering interdental spaces and for treating separate teeth.

How long do porcelain laminate teeth last?

Laminates can be used for many years with good dental care. This is because they are made of porcelain and have superior glue properties compared to other systems.
