Step Two

Tips on taking an awesome picture

Dental Smile Makeover Application San Francisco CA - Tips on taking that awesome pictureDon't use your screen as your light source; use a lamp. Using your monitor/LCD screen as your light source would make your face color look different.

A solution for this is to use a desk lamp to make your image closer to your color. The light coming from the lamp will make the webcam lower the exposure; thus, making your color more balanced.

Using a proper background behind you can also make a big difference in the image quality

Step Three

Capturing your existing smile

Step Four

Outline your smile

This outline helps the application detect your smile so it can be replaced with the appropriate smile. The application gives you two awesome features;

1) Reset the outline which you drew
2) Move the image around the canvas so your existing smile is front and center.

It is very important that the outline you draw contains at least 5 points.

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.
