Porcelain Veneers, also known as Dental Veneers, Porcelain Laminate Veneers, or Laminate Veneers, are a thin shell of porcelain or ceramic that is bonded to the front of your tooth. Depending on the type of preparation or type of material or lab used, they can also be known by other names as well. Porcelain veneers can be used to:
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 the same day , in the office by Dr. Alvarez, using the CEREC CAD/CAM system.
Dr. Edward A. Alvarez is an expert on creating Porcelain Veneers on the CEREC CAD/CAM system, and has been doing it that way for over a decade. Advantages to doing your Dental Veneers on the CEREC include:
Nonetheless, should you still want your Porcelain Veneers done by a dental laboratory, that option is always available to you.
Dr. Edward A Alvarez has been placing Porcelain Veneers for over 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 years or more. It truly depends on the expertise of the cosmetic dentist, such as Dr. Alvarez, as well as the homecare and dental office maintenance of them. Routine dental cleanings and checkups are imperative in keeping Dental Veneers looking great and 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 Porcelain Veneers will in the long run offset any Porcelain Veneer cost.
In no way should Porcelain Veneers ever look thick, or give you that "chicklet" look. Dr. Alvarez's goal is to always give you the most beautiful and natural looking veneers possible.
