Teeth Whitening

Let Your Smile Shine

We all enjoy foods and drinks that may leave our teeth dull or stained over time. We offer traditional in-office whitening that takes about an hour per session, with noticeable results right away. Our Sinsational Smile® Teeth Whitening process can restore your smile to its former glory in as little as 20 minutes. We can also prescribe custom take-home trays to safely whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home.

Tooth Contouring

Reshape Or Smooth Teeth To Revitalize Your Smile

Tooth contouring corrects minor issues by removing minuscule amounts of enamel from problem areas. This cosmetic procedure is commonly done on the front teeth since they are most visible. Small chips, extra pointy canines, slight overlaps or other minor imperfections of the incisors or canines can be sculpted into an aesthetically pleasing shape.

Dental Bonding

Correct Minor Imperfections In One Visit

Dental bonding uses tooth-colored composite resins to repair and mask minor cosmetic and structural imperfections in teeth. Composite resin is brushed on in thin layers and cured before being shaped to attain a proper bite. One visit is usually all it takes to correct chips, uneven tooth lengths and even small gaps.

Dental Veneers

Permanent Solution With a Huge Impact On Your Smile

Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way thanks to new digital dentistry options in San Diego such as CAD/CAM technology. A 3D map of your teeth is made to determine the perfect fit and position for your dental veneers. Thin wafer-like porcelain shells cover the front of the tooth surface to correct misshapen teeth, gaps, ridges and discolorations. Now, thanks to CEREC, you are no longer have to wait for the dental laboratory to mill the veneers.

Same Day Smiles

CEREC Technology Supports Same Day Crowns, Bridges, Veneers and Even Dental Implants

Advanced CAD/CAM technology gives Dr. Schaffer one more way to positively impact patients and the environment. Once a virtual 3D map of the teeth is complete, CEREC technology allows the crowns, bridges and veneers to be crafted in-house. Use of 3D digital imaging also results in the accurate placement of dental implants during an in-office oral surgery procedure.

Tooth-colored restorations are free from BPA, Bis-GMA, and mercury. We reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating the need for transport to and from the laboratory. As the first certified green dentist in San Diego, Dr. Schaffer offers high-tech options that reduce the practice’s environmental impact. We are proud to be a stellar Carmel Valley practice, determined to promoting patient wellness.
