Since 2006, Dr. Sanjay Dhir has placed 2,000-plus dental implants. So, he knows a little something about this “standard” in the replacement of missing teeth. His expertise also shows in advanced credentials from the International Congress of Oral Implantology.
Think of the smiles gracing the faces of the celebrities or leaders that you admire. Often, their perfect teeth are “made” and not “born” by skilled cosmetic dentists. Fortunately, you don’t have to have millions of dollars to look and feel like a million bucks with porcelain veneers. This popular cosmetic treatment is an exceptional value; it conservatively, quickly, safely, predictably, and often dramatically transforms the appearance of your smile. In the uber-skilled hands of Dr. Sanjay Dhir of Dhir Dentistry in San Diego, California, veneers also look natural – like real teeth, only free of chips, blemishes, and other imperfections that detract from attractive symmetry and beautiful uniformity and proportions.
We all recognize a great smile when we see one. It’s almost instinctual. Smile “artists” and “designers” like Dr. Sanjay Dhir know what makes these smiles stand out so favorably from others. After all, Dr. Dhir has extensive technical training and hands-on experience in dental esthetics and smile design, courtesy of obtaining a Postgraduate Certificate in Esthetic Dentistry from UCLA. A lifelong learner, he is committed to ongoing training in the latest, advanced techniques and treatments. You, as a patient at our San Diego, California practice benefit from knowing that the latest, greatest, and safest materials and approaches have been applied to reveal or restore your most attractive and confident smile.
Dr. Sanjay Dhir and Dhir Dentistry in San Diego, California, are proud to provide a blend of authentic, relationship-based care and advanced dental technologies and treatments. Invisalign® represents a high-tech way to straighten teeth and correct bite problems comfortably, precisely, and efficiently without braces.
At the practice of Sanjay Dhir, DDS in San Diego, California, we emphasize conservative dentistry. Dental treatments and care characterized as “conservative” involve minimal alteration of the natural tooth structure. In this manner, a maximum amount of the natural, healthy tooth is preserved when treating damage or decay.
Dental onlay restorations represent a common and attractive way to resolve damage or trauma that cannot be adequately treated with common fillings or dental inlays. Likewise, the damage addressed with the dental onlay is less extensive than the amount of tooth structure typically restored with a full-coverage dental crown. For this reason, onlays are often referred to as “partial crowns.”
Dr. Sanjay Dhir of Dhir Dentistry in San Diego, California, may recommend a dental crown (or “cap”) when a tooth-colored composite filling won’t do. A crown will restore the stunning appearance, lasting health, and comfort of your damaged, misshaped, or decayed tooth. As with fillings and other dental restorations, different materials may be used to rebuild the white section of the tooth seen above the gum line. One of the most coveted dental materials is porcelain.
This ceramic is lauded for its stain resistance, strength, and ability to “mimic” the properties of natural tooth enamel – down to how light reflects off the surface of the porcelain. Porcelain crowns are also incredibly versatile.
