Dental laminates are thin shells. Laminates are made according to the shape and characteristics of each person’s teeth. In making these thin shells, materials with natural colors close to the color of the teeth are used. Laminates are attached to the front part of the teeth. The thickness of the thin laminate changes things like the color, appearance, size, and length of the teeth. Thin laminates can be made for a more attractive smile.
As mentioned above, laminate is a thin shell. This shell is added to the front surface of the tooth. In this way, the shape and color of the teeth are corrected. Usually, the thickness of the laminate is about half a millimeter. Laminates with thin thickness are uncut laminates. The thickness of the laminates is from two-tenths to half a millimeter. This thickness is similar to the thickness of eye lenses.
The thickness of the dental laminate is determined according to a series of special issues. Issues such as the type and system of dental laminate, the amount of damage and crooked teeth, the number of teeth grinding, and other specialized issues.
