Veneers in San Francisco benefit can enhance beauty and oral health

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.
