Did you know that there are at least six different types of smiles, each garnering different responses from onlookers? From flirting to showing approval or confidence, our smiles can elicit a wide variety of powerful reactions from people. One thing they all have in common is that those reactions are more powerful when the smiles are bright, healthy, and strong.
New Smile for the New Year
Many people make resolutions in time for the new year and they often involve a small change or commitment that will make their life better. Some of the most common resolutions include losing weight, improving physical appearance, and making better financial decisions. One way to contribute to all three of those resolutions is to make an investment in improving your smile.
What Kind of Improvement Would Help Your Smile?
Whether you’ve always wanted to straighten your teeth or you have stains that have gotten worse over the years, our team at San Mateo Dental Office offers treatments that can make vast improvements to your smile. You may be surprised at how easy and affordable our cosmetic treatments are. Discover two of the procedures we offer that can noticeably improve your smile.
1. Take-Home Teeth Whitening Trays
Research shows that people find whiter teeth to be significantly more attractive than yellow or stained teeth. Our San Mateo dental team prioritizes the convenience of our patients and our take-home teeth whitening trays are perfect for those with busy schedules. See how easy it is to whiten your teeth with a customized tray that you can use on your own time.
The Teeth Whitening Process
Once you’ve arrived for your take-home teeth whitening treatment, the first step will be for Dr. Powers to take detailed images of your mouth. Those images will be used to make a 3D model and ultimately, a customized whitening tray will be crafted in a lab.
When your custom tray arrives, you’ll return to our San Mateo office to receive the whitening gel. At your own convenience, you simply have to wear the gel in the custom tray at home, saturating your teeth in the solution for a short time each day. Ask about our whitening trays and how they can give you a brighter smile within just a few weeks.
2. Porcelain Veneers
Another simple treatment offered by our San Mateo dental team that can seriously enhance your smile is the porcelain veneer. Porcelain veneers are a strong but extremely thin shell that bonds to the front of your teeth. Veneers are designed to appear as attractive, natural-looking teeth, and are therefore excellent for improving your smile despite dental problems. For example, if you have a few teeth that are misshapen, veneers can be used to give you a fully-symmetrical smile. Here are other situations where veneers are useful:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Staining or discoloration in the teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
If you have one or two problematic teeth that are keeping you from the smile you deserve, porcelain veneers may be the optimal treatment for you. Find out by scheduling a consultation with San Mateo Dental Office.
