New Year, New Smile

Cosmetic Dentistry

A Fresh Start with a Fresh Smile

It’s time for the New Year — and it’s also a great time to consider a new smile too! A smile makeover will not only boost your confidence for the new year, but it will also provide long-term benefits for your oral health as well. It’s a great way to start 2023!

Everyone’s smile is different, and a makeover isn’t a one-size-fits-all process. There are all types of different treatments, and depending on how you want your smile to look, a dentist will help you choose what’s best. Here are a few of the different ways to achieve a fresh, new smile.


If you’ve ever been self-conscious about crooked or crowded teeth, Invisalign may be the way to go. Unlike traditional braces that consist of brackets, wires, and bands, Invisalign clear braces are made of non-irritating plastic aligners that are switched out every few weeks.

Wire braces and Invisalign work similarly as they gradually move teeth into place by applying gentle pressure over time; however, Invisalign is a great alternative for those who want a less noticeable option.

Teeth Whitening

As more people strive for a pearly white smile, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments available.

While there are many over-the-counter products, teeth whitening by a dentist provides longer-lasting results. Our cosmetic dentistry office in San Mateo offers Zoom, advanced whitening technology that uses a blue light and gel to lighten your teeth up to 14 shades!

Good Habits

Having good oral hygiene habits doesn’t just mean brushing your teeth twice a day—it also means flossing daily too.

Flossing helps remove plaque from between your teeth that can lead to cavities and gum disease if left unchecked. All these little things help keep our smiles healthy so they look great all year round!

This New Year, why not make a resolution that you know you can stick with?
