At our office, we make every effort to provide you, our valued patient, with the best that dentistry has to offer. We use state-of-the-art procedures, equipment & techniques. Most services are performed in our office.
Carlsbad Dental Excellence, we understand your concerns regarding the use of metal fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to offer our patients the option of using advanced, new fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metal.
We offer in-office digital x-rays for your convenience. Digital x-rays are computer-generated images.
These images require up to 90% less radiation than conventional, film-type x-rays.
Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide x-ray film that must be developed &
then fixed in caustic & environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes
pictures via a small electronic sensor & instantaneously transmits a picture of
the tooth onto a video monitor. Therefore, we can see your
teeth & surrounding structures immediately. Feel free to contact us for more
details, or to make an appointment!

isn't just convenient, it's also healthy. Instead of the amalgam,
gold- & silver-colored mercury fillings of the past, CEREC® uses
stronger, natural-colored, ceramic materials. Contact us today to learn more.

Dental & Restorative Implants
Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace, partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone & a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge). Treatment can be finished in 3 to 5 visits over the space of about 4 to 12 months.
We understand your concerns regarding the use of mercury fillings. Accordingly, at our office we have elected to offer our patients the option of using advanced, new fillings made of tooth-colored materials that contain no metals or mercury, instead of traditional silver fillings.
Healthy Gums Lead to a Healthy Body!
Continued research has linked gum disease to diabetes, heart disease & low birth weight. In an effort to rid your teeth of the plaque & tartar that causes gum
disease (gingivitis) & tooth decay, your dental care hygienist may suggest a regimen of care that requires more frequent visits.
