How Do You Feel About Your Smile?

Refresh Your Smile at San Mateo Cosmetic Dentistry

When you smile in the mirror, what do you see? How does it make you feel?

There’s no judgement here; everyone has minor flaws they’d like to overcome. It’s just human nature to want to improve the way we look and feel. And let’s face it. For many of us, a bright, white smile adds a degree of confidence that’s hard to match.

We can’t help you with hairstyles, make-up tips or fashion choices; but our cosmetic dental office in San Mateo DOES offer treatment options to help change how you feel about your appearance and self-confidence. Our innovative dentistry techniques are tailored to each patient’s specific needs and desired outcomes.

Here’s a quick look at two of the most common dental concerns and our solutions. Can you identify with any of them?

Discolored Teeth

Age. It’s an unavoidable truth that teeth discolor over the years. Our teeth are composed of layers, and the outermost is a protective coating of enamel that wears away with age, allowing the yellow layer of dentin beneath to show through.

Beverages, like coffee, tea, and wine, can stain enamel too, as can the use of tobacco and nicotine products. Sometimes medications cause discoloration, as does poor oral hygiene when plaque builds up or teeth decay.

Our Solution

Teeth whitening and veneers are great ways to brighten any smile. Teeth whitening in San Mateo is accomplished at our office quickly and easily. Our safe and effective technology takes care of signs of aging, stains from smoking or beverages, and uneven color.

Porcelain veneers are another option, and they are thin shells of strong, durable dental ceramic that bonded to the front of each tooth.

Misaligned Teeth

Teeth come in all shapes and sizes, and we’re all different. Sometimes teeth grow in crooked, crowded, or widely spaced. Some people have an overbite (when the upper teeth overlap the bottom teeth) while others may have an underbite (when the lower teeth overlap the upper).

Our Solution

There are many options to correct maligned teeth, and corrective solutions often depend on the severity of the condition. A consultation at our San Mateo cosmetic dental office will help us determine the best way to move forward, and one of those orthodontic treatments includes Invisalign braces. They’re clear, comfortable, and far less bulky than traditional metal braces.

And the result? A boost in confidence when you flash a smile with straight teeth!

There are many other reasons why you may want to think about cosmetic dentistry, including missing teeth or gaps. What’s important to know is that we’re here to help — and it would be our honor to make looking in the mirror a joy!
