We believe every smile is uniquely beautiful, and we have the training and technology to create your beautiful, healthy, exceptional smile. Let us help you smile bigger brighter, & more often.
We want to be a dental office for your entire family. Our staff is great with all ages. We pride ourselves on making dental appointments enjoyable for our youngest patients. While many dentists choose not to invest in family dentistry, Dr. Garcia enjoys the opportunity to meet and provide care to all members of the family. Since Dr. Garcia provides such a wide range of care, our staff can accommodate the varied needs of your family. From your toddler’s teeth (we see children starting at age three), to the need for dentures, we are here to serve all of your dental needs.
Cleanings and Prevention
A good preventive dental program is a cooperative effort between the patient, dentist and hygienist to preserve the natural dentition and supporting structures by preventing dental and periodontal disease before it starts. Our office personalizes your preventive program based on factors such as home care, past periodontal disease and medical history. Prevention includes regular exams and cleanings, x-rays, fluoride treatments and sealants.
Periodontal therapy or Active therapy is the treatment for periodontal disease. The purpose is to stop the bone loss and infections associated with the active disease process. The treatment can consist of scaling and root planning by the dental hygienist, antibiotic and antimicrobial therapies, and improved home care techniques.
Veneers are thin porcelain facings that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. Veneers can be used to change the shape, color and alignment of your teeth. The process of preparing teeth for veneers, as well as the experience and artistic ability of the dental laboratory, are critical to the beautiful and natural looking restoration of teeth. We use one of the finest porcelain labs in California to fabricate our restorations. In addition, Dr. Garcia has completed extensive continuing education in the preparation, fabrication as well as placement of porcelain veneers.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are used to restore individual teeth that cannot be restored with a filling. Bridges are used to replace missing teeth. These restorations can be made out of many different materials. We fabricate crowns and bridges out of gold, porcelain fused to gold and all-porcelain. The type of restoration is determined after discussion of the patients needs and desires.
We treat most oral surgery cases in our office. Dr. Garcia is a graduate of a hospital-based residency program that provided additional oral surgery training. We try to provide as much oral surgery treatment in our office as possible. Occasionally, we must refer cases out to an Oral Surgeon. We have developed outstanding relationships with the best Oral Surgeons in the area.
