Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, but there are many options for every situation. Cosmetic dentistry has evolved over the years to include advanced treatments that address even stubborn dental concerns. Teeth whitening, for instance, is effective in many situations but may not be as effective for teeth stained by medications. In such an instance, the dental veneer may be the best treatment option. Working with your dentist to improve the esthetics of your smile is the best way to determine how to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Dental veneers are used not only to correct significantly discolored teeth, but they are also able to enhance the esthetics of a smile by covering one or more teeth that are misshapen, cracked, or slightly turned. Using porcelain, even a single tooth can be treated to give the patient the perfect look; there is no need to cover all visible teeth. Porcelain closely mimics the characteristics of natural tooth enamel. With its translucency and ability to refract light, a porcelain veneer will be indistinguishable from natural teeth, creating a uniformly dazzling smile.

We’re here to help you feel your best with a healthy and beautiful smile. Contact us to see how cosmetic dentistry can benefit you!

Addressing gum recession with gum grafting and the Pinhole® Surgical Technique

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.
