Featured Treatments

Our family-friendly dentists offer a complete range of services from preventive dental care to general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry treatments. Popular procedures include:

Dental Implants

A missing tooth can impact your oral and overall health, causing jawbone deterioration and changes in your facial appearance. Fortunately, dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. If you have missing teeth, our dentists can review your implant candidacy.

Explore Implants


At our Chula Vista, CA, office, we offer several orthodontic options, including conventional and self-ligating Damon braces. We also feature the discreet ClearCorrect™ system, which uses a series of custom clear aligners, as well as Quick Aligners for straighter teeth in only a few months.

Explore Orthodontics

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are one of the most effective and versatile restorative treatments. If you have a severely decayed, missing, or cracked tooth, we might recommend a traditional or implant-supported crown. We use porcelain and zirconia for our lifelike dental crowns.

Explore Crowns

Dental Bridges

A single missing tooth can have serious effects on your surrounding teeth, bone health, and 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 and implant-supported restorations.

Explore Bridges


LANAP® is a revolutionary, FDA-cleared treatment protocol for the management of gum disease. Instead of the metal tools used in traditional gum surgery, LANAP uses a special dental laser called the  PerioLase MVP-7. The result is quicker, quieter, and more comfortable treatment performed with greater precision. Dentists must be certified to perform LANAP. Our Chula Vista dentists are proud to offer this modern treatment option.

Prioritizing Patients And Their Comfort

"I had not been to the dentists in years until I absolutely had to. I was desperate and googled dentists near me. Perfect Smiles was the first dentist I called. Within minutes Bernardo returned my call, verified my insurance and scheduled an appointment for the same day. The whole staff is professional and very personable. They go out of their way to make me feel comfortable and make sure every one of my concerns is addressed. Dr. Garate and Dr. Falcon have made it feel like a family atmosphere and it is a bonus to be able to watch anything on TV as they are working on your teeth. I highly recommend Perfect Smiles."

Dr. Falcon fitted Matteo with a set of braces, and treatment left him with a gorgeous and well-aligned grin he's now proud to show off.
