What are Dental Laminates?

Dental Laminates are also known as laminate veneers in Mumbai and this name is often interchangeably used with veneers.  Dental laminates are very thin (almost like a potato wafer) porcelain/ceramic shells that are placed on the front of the teeth covering the enamel. They are full customizable.

They are made in such a way that you will hardly notice any different than the natural teeth. Their life like appearance is one of the reasons that laminates are so popular and in demand in Mumbai.

Difference between Veneers and Laminates

Although Veneers and laminates are used interchangeably the two are very different in terms of manufacturing and procedure of treatment. Both are customizable and change the color, size and shape of the tooth.

 A veneer is made up of two kinds of materials

  • Composite Veneer
  • Porcelain Veneer.

Porcelain veneer are more durable of the two and can last for up to a decade. They are preferred choice for designing the Bollywood smile. Composite laminates on the other hand stain easily and are damaged sooner but they can be placed in one sitting and repaired if needed. However, in veneers both the tooth and the enamel is eroded for the veneers to fit better.

Laminates are the more advanced and newer versions of veneers. They are thinner, can be placed in just one sitting and are much thinner (like a contact lens). Cost of laminate treatment in Mumbai is higher than the cost of veneer treatments.

Both the veneers and the laminates are the great option when it comes to enhancement of smile. The decision of treatment purely lies on the patient desire and the dentist, with regards to which option is better for you.
