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.

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.

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.

Dental Bonding San Mateo

Dental Bonding is a cost-effective, non-invasive procedure that Drs. Anthony and Jane Ferrera at Fiori Dental San Mateo can perform to restore and improve the look of damaged or irregularly shaped teeth. This involves the application of a safe, composite resin material, which is crafted and adhered to the compromised tooth. Not only does this resin blend with your existing teeth due to its custom shading capabilities, but it also enhances your smile to look natural.

Dental bonding by Fiori Dental San Mateo is versatile and can remedy a range of dental concerns, such as:

– Fixing cracked or broken teeth
– Bridging small gaps between your teeth
– Smoothing over surfaces with dips or ridges
– Elongating teeth that may appear too short or reshaping oddly pointed teeth
– Concealing pronounced tooth discoloration
– Providing tooth-colored fillings for decayed areas

What Can You Expect from the Dental Bonding Process at Fiori Dental San Mateo?

The treatment begins with a meticulous cleaning and preparation of the tooth in question. Drs. Anthony and Jane Ferrera carefully apply a pre-tinted bonding agent to blend in with your natural tooth color. With precision and a touch of artistry, the dentist shapes the resin to correct any flaws, such as chips or blemishes, achieving a flawless finish. Subsequently, the material is solidified rapidly using a specialized ultraviolet light. Adjustments are made to ensure your bite is comfortable. Just like that, your smile receives a remarkable boost all within a single session of dental bonding.

Could Dental Bonding Be the Solution for You?

Individuals of various ages and dental needs can typically benefit from dental bonding. If your smile is affected by any of the concerns we’ve mentioned and you’re considering a cosmetic dental treatment from Fiori Dental San Mateo, dental bonding may be just the right choice for you. To explore your options and determine if this treatment corresponds with your smile goals, we welcome you to schedule a visit with Fiori Dental San Mateo—where we’re ready to help you achieve a harmonious, radiant smile.

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.

Tooth Colored Fillings San Mateo

Carefully designed to blend in with your natural tooth enamel, composite fillings ensure that your smile remains radiant and free of any noticeable restoration work, unlike the more conspicuous amalgam fillings with their distinctive silver appearance.

Crafted from a mix of ceramic and plastic materials, these fillings not only bond chemically with your tooth, ensuring a robust and durable repair, but they also carry the advantage of being versatile. They’re the perfect choice not only for filling cavities and addressing decay but also for mending chipped or fractured teeth. While they are commonly applied to the front teeth due to their visibility when you smile, recent advancements have now made it viable to apply these tooth-colored fillings to molars.

Thanks to the chemical bonding that occurs between the composite material and your tooth, the integrity of your natural tooth structure is maintained to a greater extent. This technique might take a bit more time compared to traditional amalgam fillings, but it’s a trade-off for a subtler, more conservative treatment and a smile that doesn’t betray the presence of dental work.

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!
