San Francisco and Marin CA
Your smile is so important. It is often the first thing people notice about you and plays an essential role in others’ first impressions. It significantly affects your overall appearance and self-confidence. Because of this, a beautiful, pearly white smile is something most people want, but something that very few people naturally have. Fortunately, there is a solution: beautifully crafted veneers from Glen Park Dental. Today we explore one of the advantages for veneers, that they can permanently whiten your smile.
If you are seeking to enhance and transform your smile, veneers from Glen Park Dental offer a more permanent brightening solution than teeth whitening treatments, any of which fade over time. Veneers are designed to resist stains, even from coffee, cigarettes and tea. They are also very durable and feel natural once installed. An expert cosmetic dentist in San Francisco can place veneers on all your visible tooth surfaces, providing a long-range whitening solution. With proper oral hygiene, your veneers will last you for many years.
How do veneers work?
Glen Park Dental offers two types of veneers. The first type, porcelain veneers, consist of a thin layer of dental porcelain, which is beautiful, durable, stain-resistant and has a similar translucency to tooth enamel. The installation of porcelain veneers is minimally invasive, because only a small portion of the existing tooth structure is removed to ensure a flush bond for the veneers. Because porcelain veneers are prepared in a lab after your consultation is complete, the installation of this type of veneers requires two separate appointments, usually scheduled about two weeks apart.
The second type of veneers is composite veneers. This is a cheaper alternative to porcelain veneers, and usually can be installed fully in one appointment. These veneers are made out of composite resin, which makes them easier to repair if a problem happens to arise – by contrast, porcelain veneers require a complete replacement. If you are unsure which veneers are right for you, the cosmetic dentists in Marin can help you make the right choice based on your dental hygiene and cosmetic goals.
Are veneers right for me?
Veneers are the perfect choice for anyone looking to brighten their smile or correct cosmetic issues. While brightening your smile, veneers also provide many other cosmetic improvements as well! If you have worn, chipped, broken, uneven, misaligned, or irregularly shaped teeth, veneers can correct any of these problems while simultaneously giving you a whiter smile. Although cosmetic changes are important for the appearance of your smile, they can also provide health improvements. Having an asymmetric smile can cause your teeth to be more difficult to clean and can lead to pain or jaw problems. Whether you simply want a whiter smile, or you want to improve your oral health, veneers are an excellent investment.
