The surface no longer keeps its brightness and integrity. This change is an irreversible aging process. It is not possible to return your teeth back to their original condition but it is possible to stop. Porcelain laminates are the best solutions.
If necessary, the tooth surfaces are roughened at certain points. Then according to the need 0.1-0.7 mm porcelain laminates are prepared according to smile design. This way, integrity, brightness, color and aesthetics can be provided to patients smile.

They are more robust against staining and abrasion. In order to prolong their life, it is necessary to show sensitivity to oral care. Everything that threatens the tooth threatens the laminate as well.
