Porcelain Laminates

Porcelain Laminates For Great-Looking Pearly Whites

Porcelain veneers or laminates are one of the quickest and most viable options for restoring slightly misaligned, badly chipped and discolored teeth. It is also safe and virtually pain-free to do, which makes it an attractive option for people who long to smile with a perfect set of teeth. It also looks very natural, just like your own teeth, and people won’t even think that you’re wearing laminates at all.

The Cost Of Porcelain Laminates Installation

Porcelain laminates are done within a day or two. They are bonded to the surface of a tooth to make the tooth look like new. The laminates are created in a dental laboratory for a few days or weeks, and are shaped based on the intra and extra oral photographs, impressions, cast or models, and x-rays that are taken of your mouth.

Laminates vary in costs although the porcelain ones are said to be more expensive than composite ones. In Singapore, having the laminates done on a tooth could cost you anywhere from a hundred to a thousand dollars. The laminates can be installed in a single visit, or up to three.

How Long Do Porcelain Laminates Last?

Laminates made of porcelain appear like thin shells. The reaction of the surface is more predictable with other elements and substances, which makes it easier and flexible to prepare. Porcelain, although more expensive, is more preferred by people for laminates over composite resin (if they can afford it), since it’s impeccable. A porcelain laminate is also resistant to staining and can last up to a maximum of twelve years if you take good care of it. Despite its higher cost, availing a porcelain laminate treatment is something one should invest in for that pretty, uninhibited smile.

If you wish to have your teeth fixed and beautified, you can always go to cosmetic dentists. They’ll know just what to do to improve your smile and overall dental health.
