6 Cosmetic Dentistry Services that Restore Confidence

Cosmetic Dentistry

It’s no secret that our confidence is linked to our appearance – more directly, our smile. Our smile is supposed to be big and bright. But if you are insecure about your smile, you may not want to smile big and bright all the time.

Luckily, cosmetic dentistry offers several procedures to give you the confidence you desire with your smile. Dr. Michael Wong and the dental team at San Mateo Center for Cosmetic Dentistry are ready to help you!

Here are some common cosmetic dentistry services that have been proven to boost confidence!

Teeth Whitening

You hear it all the time when you go to the dentist – drinking coffee, teas, sodas and more will discolor your teeth. Yellow or discolored teeth are common, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with them.

We offer teeth whitening at our dental office, and our services are safe, effective and last longer than your standard over-the-counter solutions. In fact, in a single hour, you can go up to 14 shades lighter! Talk about a confidence boost!

Invisalign Braces

There’s nothing like a crooked tooth to bring that confidence down! But fear not – Invisalign braces are the ideal solution to straighten your tooth or teeth, giving you the perfect smile.

Invisalign are “invisible” braces, unlike the metal braces and brackets from years ago. You can get straight teeth without getting a full mouth of metal. Invisalign are clear plastic braces that are custom designed just for you, making them more comfortable.


Veneers can bring your confidence level up without a major dental procedure. Veneers are thin, shells of dental ceramic that are placed on top of the tooth that needs repair. This is a great solution if the tooth is strong and still functional.

If you’ve been struggling with discolored teeth, you’ll be happy to know that veneers are also stain resistant!


Crowns, also known as caps, are the ideal solution for badly shaped, discolored, damaged, or weakened teeth. They are made of porcelain and they look natural, making the perfect fit over the damaged tooth.

To get that perfect fit, we take molds of your teeth so we can customize a natural-looking cap that’s strong enough to withstand the daily use of your teeth.


If you are missing a tooth, a dental implant may be the best solution! An implant is one of the most successful options available for replacing missing teeth. We place a small titanium post, which is surgically placed on your jawbone. That post holds your new tooth in place, closing the gap between your teeth, giving you a bright smile.

Let Dr. Wong determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant.

BioClear Matrix

Gaps and holes between your teeth can be charming for some, but they can be a confidence issue for others. BioClear Matrix is the perfect solution if you are looking to close gaps or fix teeth that don’t suit your smile. Over time, our teeth end up with triangular spaces in between them, and sometimes, these areas are discolored.

The great thing about our BioClear Matrix service is that it doesn’t interfere with your daily life. There is no need to remove enamel or grind teeth prior to the application; it’s also less expensive than porcelain veneers.
