What are porcelain veneers?


porcelain veneers are a thin shell of porcelain or ceramic that is bonded to the front of your tooth. porcelain veneers, also known as dental veneers, are used to:

  • CHANGE THE SHAPE OF A TOOTH
  • CHANGE THE COLOR OF A DISCOLORED TOOTH
  • CHANGE THE SIZE OF A TOOTH
  • CLOSE GAPS BETWEEN TEETH
  • CHANGE THE SYMMETRY OF YOUR TEETH AND YOUR SMILE


hOW ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS MADE?


DENTAL VENEERS ARE VERY THIN, SOMETIMES LESS THAN A MILLIMETER IN THICKNESS. THEY CAN EITHER BE FABRICATED IN A DENTAL LABORATORY AFTER IMPRESSIONS ARE DONE, OR THEY CAN BE DONE SAME DAY, IN THE OFFICE BY DR. ALVAREZ, USING THE CEREC CAD/CAM SYSTEM.


DR. ALVAREZ IS AN EXPERT ON CREATING VENEERS ON THE CEREC CAD/CAM SYSTEM, AND HAS BEEN DOING IT THAT WAY FOR CLOSE TO A DECADE. aDVANTAGES TO DOING YOUR VENEERS ON THE cEREC INCLUDE:

  • SAME DAY FABRICATION OF YOUR PORCELAIN VENEER
  • NO UNCOMFORTABLE IMPRESSIONS
  • NO TEMPORARIES TO BE WORN THAT CAN FALL OFF
  • DESIGNED ON A 3D VIRTUAL MODEL WITH YOU AS A PARTNER IN THE DESIGN
  • ANY CORRECTION CAN BE DONE IMMEDIATELY WITHOUT SENDING BACK TO THE LABORATORY
  • CHOICE OF MULTIPLE SHADES AND TYPES OF PORCELAIN DONE BY YOU IN THE CHAIR
  • LONG TERM STUDIES THAT SHOW THE STRENGTH AND  SUCCESS OF CEREC VENEERS


SHOULD YOU WANT YOUR VENEERS DONE BY A DENTAL LAB, THAT OPTION IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO YOU.


wHAT ARE SOME OF THE ADVANTAGES OF PORCELAIN VENEERS, AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?


dR. ALVAREZ HAS BEEN PLACING DENTAL VENEERS FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS, AND HAS MANY CASES DONE IN THE LATE 1990'S THAT STILL LOOK GREAT TODAY. TYPICALLY, PORCELAIN VENEERS CAN LAST UP TO 20 YEAR OR MORE. iT TRULY DEPENDS ON THE EXPERTISE OF THE DOCTOR PLACING THEM, AS WELL AS THE HOME AND DENTAL OFFICE MAINTENANCE OF THEM. ROUTINE DENTAL CLEANINGS AND CHECKUPS ARE IMPERATIVE IN KEEPING VENEERS IN GREAT SHAPE. DENTAL VENEERS WILL NEVER CHANGE SHAPE OR COLOR, AND MADE WITH THE APPROPRIATE PORCELAIN, THEY WILL NOT DAMAGE ANY OTHER TEETH.  The longevity of Veneers will in the long run offset any porcelain veneers cost.


IN NO WAY SHOULD PORCELAIN VENEERS LOOK THICK, OR GIVE YOU THAT "CHICKLET" LOOK. dR. aLVAREZ'S GOAL IS ALWAYS TO GIVE YOU THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND NATURAL LOOKING VENEERS POSSIBLE.
