People in San Francisco know the benefits of veneers for enhancing their teeth

Dr. Leo Arellano and his team love what they can do for their patients. Their talent, artistry, compassion, and training give them the ability to create positive changes in people’s smiles, making them happy and improving their self-esteem. Porcelain veneers treatment is a favorite among the dental team and patients because the smile transformation and ensuing delight are just a few weeks away.

There are numerous benefits to choosing porcelain veneers for smile enhancement:

  • Versatility – Rather than patients having different treatments to correct various dental flaws, porcelain veneers can address a variety of concerns. Misaligned teeth that are simply a cosmetic concern can be covered with veneers rather than waiting months to complete orthodontic treatment. Discolored teeth that do not respond well to a whitening treatment can be brightened with veneers. Minor chips and cracks can be addressed with a veneer rather than dental bonding or a crown.
  • Beauty – Porcelain is glassy, translucent, and refracts and reflects light, closely mimicking natural tooth enamel. The material is extremely hard, durable, and stain resistant, resulting in a lustrous smile for many years.
  • Easy Care – Porcelain veneer maintenance is simple. Veneers need the same care as natural teeth, brush and floss regularly, but make sure the toothpaste is non-abrasive. It is important to avoid habits such as using teeth to opening packages and bottles, and refrain from biting fingernails, chewing ice, or anything that exerts excessive force on the teeth.

  • Conservative – Veneers are an ideal alternative to dental crowns in many cases, as they can change the color, shape, or size of teeth without the significant grinding down of tooth structure required for crown placement.
  • Healthy – Porcelain is biocompatible, so the veneers will not cause gum irritation or be rejected by the body. They protect teeth that have been affected by enamel loss or erosion, and restore some strength to fractured and chipped teeth. The best benefit of all – patients are so delighted with their new smile that they tend to take better care of it with improved oral hygiene and regular checkups.
  • Fast – Treatment can typically be completed in two to three weeks.

Dr. Leo Arellano and his team of professionals offer a complimentary 15-minute consultation with the doctor. Call 415-881-4343 today, to get on the fast track to a winning smile.

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.
