Veneers in San Francisco benefit can enhance beauty and oral health

Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular and transformative cosmetic treatments available in San Francisco. The principal purpose of veneers is to cover aesthetic issues such as discoloration, chips, and cracks. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are placed on the front surfaces of the teeth.

Porcelain is ceramic fired at such a high temperature that it develops a glass-like structure. The properties of this material include strength, durability, hardness, translucency, whiteness, light refraction, and resistance to stains and temperature changes. Porcelain mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel, making porcelain veneers ideal for creating beautiful, natural looking smiles.

Instant Orthodontics

Many people don’t realize that there are other benefits to porcelain veneers above and beyond their beauty. Veneers are frequently called “instant orthodontics” because they can accomplish the following:

  • Lengthen short teeth
  • Widen narrow teeth
  • Straighten crooked teeth
  • Improve misshapen teeth
  • Strengthen weak teeth
  • Close gaps between teeth

By correcting problems such as those listed above, a uniform smile is created and the bite can be improved. An improved bite can relieve abnormal pressure on the jaw joints, potentially avoiding jaw and face pain, earaches, and headaches.

A Healthier Mouth

Efficient oral hygiene practices will be easier, reducing the risk of developing periodontal (gum) disease. When the bacteria are not removed from teeth, they increase and can result in periodontal disease. In the early stages (gingivitis), the gums will redden, become inflamed, and bleed when the teeth are brushed or flossed. If not treated, gingivitis will advance to periodontitis. This severe form of periodontal disease can cause the loss of gum tissue, bone, and over time, teeth.

Additionally, doctors have found that people who have enhanced their smiles are inclined to practice better hygiene routines at home and visit their dentist regularly. When patients love their smiles and enjoy having a healthy mouth, they maintain better dental care.


Many people who are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles have a tendency to refrain from smiling. When they transform their smiles with porcelain veneers, they begin to smile proudly. Smiles have excellent health benefits. The body releases serotonin, endorphins, and dopamine during a smile. These neurotransmitters send “feel good” signals throughout the body, lowering heart rate and blood pressure as well as facilitating relaxation. San Francisco dentist, Dr. Leo Arellano, is dedicated to the health and wellbeing of his patients. The doctor and his talented team love what they can do for their patients.

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.
