Advantages of porcelain dental veneers in Daly City, CA

dvantages of porcelain dental veneers in Daly City, CA

Dental veneers are increasingly becoming a popular option for patients in Daly City, CA. Veneers can be used to cover teeth that are misshaped, yellowed, out of alignment, cracked, or broken. The procedure involves several trips to a trusted and trained dentist; however, the process ends with a bright and confident smile.

Unlike crowns, dental veneers don’t require extensive shaping or removal of the tooth’s enamel. Therefore, this treatment is a great option for patients who only want to make minor changes to their smile. Patients have two veneer options — those made of a composite resin or those made of porcelain. While resin veneers will be a little bit thinner, the porcelain veneers provide a more natural appearance because of the way they reflect light.

Dental veneers have several other advantages including the following:

  • In most cases, patients do not have irritation from porcelain.
  • The veneers can be custom-made, in shape and color, to give patients a completely unique and natural-looking smile. For patients who want to brighten their smile, the veneers can be created in a whiter shade than the original teeth.
  • While dental veneers are incredibly thin, once bonded to the teeth they are extremely strong.
  • Caring for dental veneers requires no additional daily steps or activities. Brushing and flossing every day are important to keeping the veneers looking great and the teeth healthy. Patients are advised to avoid biting into hard items such as ice or chewing on pens because the veneers can chip or crack, just like the natural teeth.

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.... More Reviews
