Is Your Smile Back-to-School Ready?

Cosmetic Dentistry


Achieve an A+ Smile at San Mateo Center for Cosmetic Dentistry

Yes, it’s that time of year again. Summer vacations have ended and it’s back to business. Are you ready to shed that vacation state-of-mind? Is your smile bright and ready to greet teachers, parents, and associates?

Back-to-school is exciting for some, but with tiring schedules and routines — not to mention supply shopping, last minute school projects, grading papers, and preparing report cards — it can be a dreary thought for others.

As we transition back to in-person learning, it will be great to reconnect with friends and colleagues. And although we may be wearing masks at the beginning, wouldn’t it be great knowing there’s a confident smile underneath?

But where do you start? Here are a few cosmetic dental services in San Mateo to consider.

Whiten and Brighten

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are handy, but they’re not long lasting. The Zoom teeth whitening system at our office is a quick and comfortable way to achieve sparkling results. Utilizing a patented blue light, along with a tooth whitening gel, Zoom gets teeth up to 14 shades lighter in as little as 1 hour.

You might want to consider teeth whitening if you have uneven color; staining from smoking, red wine, coffee, or tea; or yellowing teeth.

Professional teeth whitening is quick, easy, and confidence building!

Porcelain Veneers

These durable ceramic “shells” are bonded over teeth for a completely new look. Veneers are a great solution for cracked, chipped and broken teeth; gaps between teeth; and worn, damaged or irregularly shaped teeth.

Veneers are natural in appearance and stain resistant, and a more conservative solution than implants. If you’d like to consider porcelain veneers to transform your smile, a consultation with Dr. Michael Wong will indicate if you’re a good candidate.

Invisalign Clear Braces

Another cosmetic dental procedure to consider is Invisalign. Because Invisalign uses clear plastic to straighten teeth, there are no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth or cause embarrassment.

Treatment consists of a series of aligners that are switched out every two weeks. You may be a good candidate for Invisalign if you have an overbite, underbite, cross bite, crowded teeth, or widely spaced teeth.
