Dental Emergency Frequently Asked Questions

If you're interested in cosmetic services, give us a call or stop by in-person to schedule a consultation at our Rancho Peñasquitos office. Otherwise, feel free to read our most commonly asked questions for more information.

Do I need cosmetic dentistry?

If you are unhappy with your teeth or you feel self-conscious about your smile, cosmetic options may be right for you. At Carmel Mountain Dental Care, we can improve:

  • misshapen or irregular teeth
  • small gaps between teeth
  • tooth decay, stained teeth or discolorations
  • dental trauma, such as a chipped or broken teeth

Even small cosmetic or orthodontic imperfections are quickly and easily fixed with cosmetic dental care including veneers, dental crowns, dental bonding, contouring, teeth whitening, and Invisalign.

What are tooth-colored fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composite fillings, are exactly what they sound like: fillings that are the color of your natural tooth. They're made of composite resin that can be dyed to match the shade of your surrounding teeth, making it indistinguishable from the existing tooth structure. You won't have to worry about silver fillings standing out or giving your teeth that grayish hue. Seamlessly fill cavities in a beautiful way with this aesthetically pleasing option.

How can veneers improve my smile?

Veneers are beautiful, custom-made shells of porcelain or composite resin are carefully bonded to the front of your teeth. They are extremely thin to create a natural look, yet very durable. With proper care, they can last decades. Veneers can correct a wide variety of imperfections and are often recommended for those who want to straighten slightly crooked teeth, fill in gaps between teeth, or hide aggressive or unremovable stains.

What is bonding, shaping and contouring?

During the dental bonding process, your dentist uses a natural-colored composite resin that's applied to a tooth, set with a special light, and then shaped using dental tools. Similarly to other cosmetic services, such as veneers, bonding and shaping are treatments used to fill in gaps between teeth, hide staining, and generally give the teeth a more aesthetically pleasing shape. Bonding and shaping is usually recommended when the imperfections are less extensive.

Contouring is a subtle reshaping of the tooth (or teeth) for an improved appearance. It is often used in combination with bonding for the ultimate smile makeover.

What's the difference between professional teeth whitening and store-bought brands?

Experiencing staining from coffee or wine? Even the simple, unavoidable process of aging can cause tooth discoloration. The professional-grade teeth whitening agents used in dental offices offer a stronger formula with longer-lasting results. They help break down and remove stains better than store-bought kits, and often produce better results in a shorter amount of time than typical drugstore whitening strips or gels.

How can dental implants improve my smile cosmetically?

A preferred alternative to dentures, dental implants replace one or more missing teeth with an artificial root, abutment and crown. By replacing missing teeth, you prevent your remaining natural teeth from shifting inward to fill the gap. Dental implants also help to strengthen the jaw bone and prevent deterioration of the jaw and malocclusion. Plus, when you have all your teeth, speak more confidently, eat more comfortably, smile more naturally.

How can receive a dental crown in just one day?

CEREC stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics and is an in-office, advanced digital technology that allows us to design and build a custom tooth restoration, such as a dental crown, in just one day. Our Rancho Peñasquitos practice offers CEREC same-day technology, so you can receive a permanently dental crown the day you need it, without temporary crowns or having to wait on an off-site lab. It's convenient and cost-effective for our patients!

Is Invisalign right for me?

Invisalign clear aligners are made of clear, smooth, thermoplastic. They're strong enough to gradually shift your teeth into a straighter position while remaining comfortable to wear continuously throughout your treatment. They're nearly invisible which allows patients to enjoy the progress of their treatment. The Invisalign system is also convenient and flexible, so it's likely that Dr. Lee, Dr. Moeckel, or Dr. Saade can find a treatment plan that will work for your case. The only way to know for sure is to come in for a consultation at Carmel Mountain Dental Care. We can help you explore your orthodontic options and find the right treatment for your smile.
