Porcelain or composite resin materials are mostly preferred for laminated tooth coating. Porcelain laminates are more resistant to stains and better mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth.
Laminas are generally used in the treatment of stained, worn, broken, misaligned, irregularly shaped teeth with spaces between them.

Apart from this, it is seen as a more conservative treatment for teeth due to minimal intervention. Another advantage is that it has an appearance much closer to natural teeth due to its light transmittance. Laminated coatings have color options so that the most suitable color can be applied to the person. Laminated veneers provide a perfect fit and appearance at the junction of teeth and gums. The reflection on the gingival edge that occurs in metal-supported porcelain bridges does not occur in lamina porcelain.

Lamina porcelain rehearsal is done with polish. Since these are made in highly polished porcelain furnaces, they are more resistant to wear.
