Many patients who visit our Chula Vista, CA, office don't know the impact a missing tooth can have on their oral and overall health. The roots of a tooth provide signals to the bone tissue in your jaw, keeping it healthy and strong. Without these signals, your jawbone begins to deteriorate. Fortunately, dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. If you are concerned about your missing teeth, our dentists can review your candidacy and provide information about dental implants at your next appointment.
At Perfect Smiles California in Chula Vista, CA, we offer several orthodontic options including conventional and self-litigating Damon braces. We also offer the incredibly discreet ClearCorrect system which uses a series of custom clear aligners. For those who are interested in straighter teeth in only a few months, our dentists offer Fastbraces® which can provide a beautiful smile in a fraction of the time compared to traditional braces. A straighter smile can not only improve your confidence but also boost your oral health.
Dental crowns are one of the most effective and versatile restorative treatments. If you have a severely decayed or cracked tooth, or you need a root canal, we might recommend a crown. Implants can also be topped with these restorations to repair missing teeth. We use porcelain and Zirconia for our full-coverage dental crowns, luminous materials that have a beautiful sparkle and translucence that mimics natural teeth.
Did you know just a single missing tooth can have serious effects on your surrounding teeth, bone health, and even general health? Bridges literally bridge the gap caused by one, two, or three missing teeth in a row. We offer traditional bridges, anchored by lifelike dental crowns, as well as implant-supported restorations. Implants allow us to preserve your natural teeth and put a stop to the bone loss that occurs after teeth fall out or are extracted.
Establishing effective dental habits as a child can lead to a lifetime of good oral health. To help your child enjoy a beautiful smile for life, developing a positive relationship with the dentist is incredibly important. Our dentists understand this principle and strive to offer children gentle care and a warm, friendly environment to promote lasting oral and overall wellbeing. Special care is taken to promote a positive association with routine procedures such as cleanings and exams, fillings, fluoride treatments, and orthodontics.
Dental emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere. An injury to the gums or teeth can be incredibly serious and should not be ignored. Common injuries include a serious toothache, knocked-out tooth, a soft tissue injury, or a jaw injury. If you think you need the attention of an emergency dentist in Chula Vista, CA, call our office immediately and we can advise you on how to proceed. We offer same-day appointments at our dental practice so that no matter when a dental emergency strikes, you can receive the care you need when you need it most.

State-of-the-Art Technology 3-D Scanning, 3-D Printing, and More
At Perfect Smiles California, our Chula Vista, CA, dentists use a number of state-of-the-art tools to ensure patients receive the best possible treatment. With the help of computer-enhanced images provided by our 3-D panoramic x-ray machine, Drs. Garate and Falcon can pinpoint issues that may go undetected with traditional imaging techniques. This allows our dentists to accurately plan for advanced oral treatments such as dental implants and orthodontics. We also use this information with a 3-D printer to create surgical guides for implant placement.
We can also take 3-D scans of our patients' teeth, avoiding the need for messy traditional impressions, and intraoral cameras provide an added level of precision during all types of treatments.
