Laminates and veneers:
Dental laminates are very thin non-metal shells made out of dental ceramic. These laminates are bonded onto the front of teeth and are typically used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discoloured, worn, chipped, malformed, have gaps between them, or are slightly misaligned.
The laminates are totally compatible with the body and do not cause allergies.
Zirconium-supported porcelain crowns are porcelains that use a white, non-metal zirconium alloy in their substructure. Aesthetically, it is difficult to distinguish them from the natural appearance of teeth.
Visually, the porcelain appears more natural than metal-supported porcelain.. It reflects the light and does not form a dark coloured line between the gums because of its white-coloured alloy which is used as the substructure. Like the laminates, they are completely compatible with the body and do not cause allergies.
Full porcelain crowns (Empress):
The full porcelain crowns are made from reinforced porcelain. No metal (or other substance) is used in their substructure. Full porcelain crowns have the closest aesthetic appearance to the natural tooth. However, they are more expensive.
