At Jeff Gray DDS we see many San Diego patients with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.
I am Dr. Jeff Gray and I recommend that La Mesa area parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most La Mesa sporting goods stores are also an option.
If you or your child is in need of cosmetic dentistry due to an injury or an accident, my staff and I at Jeff Gray DDS offer many restorative options.
If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be an option. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth or teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or discoloration.
Cosmetic dental bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than porcelain veneers and gives beautiful results.
If a crown or dental implant is required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Jeff Gray DDS will provide quality dental crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.
Jeff Gray DDS has been offering family and cosmetic dentistry to the people of La Mesa and San Diego since 1986. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
