Dentist Oakland The Value of Veneers

Dentist in Oakland describes the benefits of dental veneers


The team of Franklin Dental Care understands the importance of a beautiful smile. When imperfections negatively impact the appearance of the teeth, it can cause patients to feel self-conscious about how they look. Instead of hiding their smile or avoiding talking to others, patients should speak to a dentist in the Oakland area about the possibility of obtaining porcelain veneers.


Porcelain veneers are just one of several cosmetic treatments available with our team. Drs. Norman Yung, Kwang Kim, Lawrence Wu, and Adam Wu work together with new and existing patients to help them determine if porcelain veneers are right for them. Veneers are thin ceramic facings that dentists custom-fabricate for patients to cover problem areas of the smile. They are bonded right over the tooth and can disguise issues such as permanent staining, breakage, misalignment, and gaps. Veneers are fast, easy, and affordable, while looking completely natural within the smile.


Most candidates are appropriate for the placement of porcelain veneers. Patients are advised that preparations are needed which include the filing down of the natural tooth enamel before taking impressions of the teeth. Once porcelain veneers are in place, they can last a decade or longer if patients maintain their regular dental appointments with a professional. Conditions such as periodontal disease and cavities can still form on the tooth structure underneath the veneer, so it is just as important as ever before to visit the dentist at least twice a year for cleanings and examinations. Porcelain veneers are an alternative to composite resin bonding, another option available for patients seeking a more economical solution.
