Porcelain Veneers San Mateo

Porcelain Veneers are thin porcelain shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. With veneers as an alternative, there is no reason to put up with gaps between your teeth, teeth that are stained, badly shaped, or crooked. A veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct these maladies, simply and quickly and help you achieve a beautiful smile!

The ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Because they are thin, light can shine through them and they take on the natural color of the underlying tooth. Veneers can last well over a decade.

Your Fiori Dental of San Mateo Dentist will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.

The Porcelain Veneer Procedure

This procedure will require three appointments at Fiori Dental of San Mateo:

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning
  • Preparation
  • Bonding
  • Preparation

The second appointment at Fiori Dental of San Mateo will take one to two hours. Although the porcelain veneer is very thin, the teeth are lightly buffed to allow for the added thickness. Approximately one half of a millimeter of tooth is removed.

This may require little or no local anesthesia.

Then a mold is taken of the teeth and sent to the lab for fabrication. In some cases, temporary veneers will be placed at this time to add protection to the teeth.

Dental Bonding San Mateo

Two or three weeks after preparation, your porcelain veneers will be ready for your teeth. At the time of your third appointment, doctor will first place the veneer on your teeth with water or glycerin to check the fit and color. At this point, the color of the veneer can still be adjusted by the shade of the cement used to adhere it. Once the color is determined and the veneer is ready to be applied, the tooth is cleaned with specific chemicals to achieve a bond. Special cement is placed between the teeth and the veneer and a special light is used to harden the cement. This appointment takes approximately one to two hours.

Care & Follow-Up of Porcelain Veneers

Brush and floss daily. Return for a follow-up visit after one to two weeks. You may notice some changes in your bite or speech, but these will subside within a few days as your mouth and brain adjust to your new beautiful smile.

Maintenance Of Your New Porcelain Veneers

Brush and floss as you normally would. Don’t be afraid that you will damage your veneers by doing so. Non-abrasive toothpaste is recommended. A good home care regimen will insure the best aesthetic success of your veneer.

You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold after placement of your veneer. This is due to the amount of enamel left on the tooth after preparation. Sensitivity is totally normal and should dissipate in one to two weeks. If sensitivity persists, please call the office.

Teeth Whitening San Mateo

Fiori Dental of San Mateo offers a full range of cosmetic dentistry including professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is the #1 requested and performed cosmetic dental procedure. Teeth whitening (sometimes called teeth bleaching) is a procedure that brightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration.

Throughout the day a thin coating of bio film collect on teeth, the bio film can attract stains that can be trapped in the pores of tooth’s enamel.

Teeth whitening by a dental professional is key as cavities need to be treated before teeth are whitened. Cavities are problematic because whitening solution can penetrate the cavity allowing decay to reach inner areas of a tooth. People with good dental health may also use a kit to whiten teeth at home. However, in a single office visit, teeth whiting preformed by a dental professional will produce brighter results that are more consistent in color across all teeth.

Teeth whitening is a cost-effective way to enjoy the benefits of cosmetic dentistry. From our location in San Mateo, we are your fast and knowledgeable source to provide you with bright, sparkling smiles.

First time back to the dentist in over 10 years. Friends recommended Dr. Anthony and Dr Jane and they didn’t steer me wrong. The office is bright and open, the staff friendly, welcoming, and informative. Quickly I got a great plan for treating what needed done (a filling, cleaning, X-rays) and the team was happy to help schedule and work with my insurance. I’ve recommended my husband change dentists and see Drs Ferrera as well. You know it’s a great spot when you leave smiling :). Highly recommend Fiori Dental!
