What you need to know about Porcelain Veneers in San Francisco

Dental veneers have been in existence for over fifty years. This cosmetic treatment was first seen in the 1930’s when there was a need to improve the smiles of actors and actresses in Hollywood films. At that time, they were the only people who received smile makeovers. Fortunately, this treatment has evolved and become very affordable so that anyone can improve imperfections with porcelain veneers in San Francisco.

Any veneer is essentially a thin layer of material. This material is attached to the front surface of teeth in order to restore or enhance their appearance. Discoloration, extra spacing and misshapen teeth disappear behind the attached veneers. The result is far more than an improved smile; it will enhance your self-esteem. Since your smile is how you greet the world, you want to feel confident in showing it off.

Today, there are 2 major types of veneers available: composite and porcelain. Each material will produce a different end result; which is why porcelain is becoming the preferred choice. The main characteristic of porcelain is this material closely mimics those of natural enamel. Veneers that are crafted from porcelain will blend in seamlessly with adjacent teeth.

You want a naturally beautiful smile that will last for years. With porcelain, you are able to obtain a dazzling white smile that will resist stains. You can continue to enjoy all the foods you love without worry that your brilliant white smile will be impacted. Simply maintaining good oral hygiene is all you need to extend the life of your new and improved smile.

Porcelain has one more important benefit: its ability to refract and reflect light. It is this characteristic that allows porcelain veneers to appear life-like — just like natural tooth enamel.

To gain confidence in your smile, consider the benefits of porcelain veneers and discuss your options with Dr. Arellano.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
