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.
