In this article, we will examine common problems such as cracking, breaking, crushing, or falling of dental laminate and provide solutions for each of them. If the dental laminate is separated, it is necessary to follow the following steps:
In most cases, the loss of the dental laminate causes the teeth to need restoration. The following are among the emergencies that may occur after the laminate is separated:
This step should be done very carefully. In cases where the tooth laminate cover is broken and parts of it are still attached to the tooth, these remaining parts may be sharp and cause damage. So, while examining different parts of the teeth, be careful of your fingers, tongue, lips, and cheeks.
At this time, there are two possible options that we will consider:
Among the two options that we examined as damage to the dental veneer, this case will cause fewer problems for you. In this case, when examining the condition of the dental laminate, you will notice that:
This event is known as the most severe problem in this field. Because in these cases, care must be taken so that the sharpness of the teeth does not cause injury. In this situation, you will notice that parts of your tooth enamel are missing. The broken part can be small or large. In any case, it is necessary to repair your dental laminate.
Even after you have emptied the contents of your mouth, it is necessary to collect the pieces that have been detached from your dental enamel. For this purpose, you can slowly wash your mouth and pour the contents into a container and then examine it carefully. In this way, the probability of collecting the broken parts of the dental laminate increases.
Hope you find these parts
After you have assembled the pieces of dental laminate veneers, look at them:
To check whether your dental laminate is still usable or not, you can use the following tips:
If you notice that your dental laminate is healthy and not seriously damaged, take it with you when you visit the dentist. In this case, it is possible to repair the coating at a small cost and save on treatment costs. So when you collect the cover, wrap it in soft tissue and place it in a sturdy container.
In case the tooth laminate is broken, you should collect its components and take it with you when visiting the dental clinic. Probably, these parts will help the dentist to examine the problem more precisely.
One of the actions you should take when the laminate falls and breaks are to call or visit a dentist. For this purpose, it is better to collect the pieces of laminate and inform the dentist about the details of the problem.
In most cases, the problems that arise from dental laminate coating are related to the beauty of the teeth and do not cause any damage to the teeth themselves. Of course, this does not mean that the problem is not very important and it is not necessary to do something special about it. Rather, interventions related to the beauty of the teeth should be performed at the first opportunity and the laminate of the damaged tooth should be repaired. There are usually no home remedies for these types of problems. Of course, putting white wax on the tooth can improve its appearance to some extent. But we do not approve or recommend any of these methods for attaching dental laminate at home, and our recommendation is to visit a dentist.
When the tooth laminate coating is removed, the sensitivity of the teeth will increase and they will be more sensitive to cold and heat. Of course, this is one of the problems that will probably get better by itself.
In most cases, a part of the front surface of the tooth is shaved to install the laminate on the teeth. But in cases where the dental laminate is used with a very low thickness, there is probably no need to shave the teeth. So, when the special underlayment is not done for the laminated tooth, you don’t need to worry about the laminate falling off. Because there will be no special problem for you and you can take the necessary measures for repair by visiting your dentist. In this situation, temporary veneers are usually not used and until your dental laminate is rebuilt and ready to be installed, the teeth will remain without veneers.
The points discussed so far are related to teeth whose dental laminates have been damaged by chewing hard food or any other indirect factor. But if the tooth laminate is fractured due to a direct impact, a different and probably more complicated process must go through.
Since you have lost your dental veneers, you are likely to experience problems such as:
Apply white wax on the teeth:
Use a mouth guard:
Ask your dentist for advice:
Visiting the dental office in person:
Since a wide range of treatments can be used to restore and repair a broken and damaged laminate, the type of treatment will depend on the amount and type of damage. In the following, we will discuss how to repair damaged laminates.
To prevent further damage to the dental laminate coating, it is necessary to avoid some activities that may damage the laminate. For example, nail-biting, teeth clenching, etc. In this situation, it is better to discuss your condition and problems with the dentist. In this way, the dentist can choose the best treatment solution and use it to repair the veneer.
The type of problem you have encountered and the discomfort you have experienced afterward can guide the dentist to diagnosing the root of the problem.
The dental laminate cover consists of several layers, which include the laminate, the tooth, and the material used for bonding. When the dental laminate separates from its surface, this separation may occur at the cement-laminate junction or the cement-tooth junction.
Explanation: The dental laminate cover will be stuck on the surface of the tooth using an adhesive material. In most cases, the looseness of this bond causes the laminate to separate and fall. If a large percentage of the tooth is used for attachment, there is a possibility that the bond will loosen.
As explained above, the dentist in Canada tries to repair and restore the laminate cover and install it on the tooth. But if the surface of the tooth weakens the bond with the laminate, this defect will always be permanent and will not be solved. So the dentist may decide to use bonding for a longer period.
Due to the thin and delicate nature of dental laminates, it is unbelievable to most people that these materials do not break easily. But if the laminate breaks, the repairs that are done will increase their durability and minimize the possibility of damage.
When the dental laminate cracks, this damage can indicate excessive pressure on the tooth structure. For example, when the laminate is attached to the tooth, the force applied to the tooth is concentrated on the veneer and causes it to crack.
