Helping Daly City look younger with cosmetic dentistry services

Look younger with cosmetic dentistry

The Max Planck Institute in Berlin conducted a study that found most adults underestimate the age of people when they are smiling. People have a tendency to perceive smiling faces as more upbeat, attractive, and youthful. However, smiles can begin to show the esthetic and physical signs of aging when people are in their 30s or 40s as health habits and lifestyles take their toll on the teeth.

Fortunately, the advances in cosmetic dentistry now offer many opportunities to reverse the dental signs of aging with conservative treatments and beautiful results.

  • Oral health – A healthy mouth is the foundation for a beautifully youthful smile.
  • Whitening – A sparkling white smile tends to dim as time passes due to the staining agents in the richly colored foods and beverages. Professional in-office or at-home teeth whitening can lighten teeth by several shades, making the smile appear more youthful and vibrant.
  • Tooth shaping and contouring – As patients age, their teeth naturally wear down. Dental bonding can be used to shape a tooth as well as conceal stains, chips, and gaps.
  • Porcelain veneers – Thin sheaths of porcelain can be bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to change their size, color, or shape. With age, tooth enamel thins, allowing the yellowish dentin to show through. Veneers can essentially replace the enamel, restoring youthful brilliance.
  • Dark fillings – Tooth colored composite fillings, or porcelain inlays or onlays, can replace silver amalgam fillings, making dental work virtually undetectable. A smile without obvious work looks naturally beautiful and youthful.
  • Invisalign – A straight set of teeth conveys youth. Invisalign can correct misalignment discreetly using clear aligner trays.
  • Porcelain crowns and bridges – Missing or damaged teeth can be restored beautifully and naturally, eliminating flaws that age a smile. And old gold crowns can be replaced with natural tooth colored alternatives.
  • Periodontal treatments – Treatment for gum disease can halt gum recession, and gum contouring or grafting can create beautiful pink frames around the teeth for a younger looking smile.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
