Let's Talk About Your San Diego Smile

I’m Dr. Jeff Gray. My office is located at 8555 Fletcher Parkway #102, La Mesa, CA 91942. One of the best things about being a San Diego area dentist is interacting with my patients. During initial dental consultations, I listen carefully to my patient’s short and long term dental goals.

I enjoy discussing options and developing effective treatment plans tailored specifically to each person. Some of my clients desire a total smile makeover. I explain in detail the treatments available including teeth whitening, dental veneers, orthodontia, crown restoration, and dental implants.

Let’s Talk About Your Smile If a client is nervous about undergoing treatment, we discuss oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation, sometimes called oral sedation dentistry, is a great option for anxious patients. Dental visits do not have to be painful!

After the treatment has been completed, it is very gratifying for me to see my patient’s reaction to their new smile.

I never get tired of creating dramatic smile transformations for the best clients in California!

If you have been considering a smile makeover, let’s talk about your smile. Call Jeff Gray DDS to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation.


Your San Diego Cosmetic Dentist

Affordable San Diego Cosmetic DentistryRelationships of all kinds are important. Especially your relationship with your San Diego dentist.

Did your last San Diego cosmetic dentist cause you fear, guilt and pain? Perhaps you quit seeing your dentist because  you hated going and he/she loved making you wait. Was your previous San Diego cosmetic dentist insensitive to your concerns? Was he/she a poor communicator? Perhaps you have simply moved into the La Mesa or San Diego area and need a new provider.

I am Dr. Jeff Gray of Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa. I understand that many patients are nervous (okay – downright terrified) about dental visits. I also realize that no client wants to be given a shameful lecture about their oral health.

Though I have years of experience and extensive training on all the latest cosmetic dental procedures, there are some things that can’t be learned in dental school; how to build trusting relationships with your patients and create a relaxed atmosphere in your dental practice. I understand that San Diego dental clients can feel very vulnerable as they lie in the chair with their mouth open. My staff and I maintain a friendly environment in our pleasant office. We manage our practice carefully to minimize waiting and provide ample time for each valued patient.

Effective communication is a priority. I make sure my San Diego cosmetic dentistry patients understand their restorative and cosmetic options and answer all their questions before we develop a treatment plan.

If you are currently seeking a considerate, experienced, and sensitive La Mesa or San Diego dentist, I look forward to meeting you. My phone number is 619-337-7700. You can learn more about me at https://smilesandiego.mdc.work/.


Love Your Smile in San Diego

Love Your Smile in La Mesa There is nothing like bright white teeth that light up a person’s whole face when they smile and laugh. No one has to settle for dull, yellow teeth.

This is a great time for San Diego men, women and teens to get a deep teeth cleaning and tooth whitening at Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa. With a deep cleaning followed by teeth bleaching, your teeth will feel as good as they look.

If you have an important upcoming event such as a San Diego wedding, Alpine party or formal family portrait sitting, a smile makeover will give you extra confidence as you pose for photos (even close-ups).

Santee teeth bleaching can whiten teeth beyond their natural shade. At our La Mesa cosmetic dentistry practice, we don’t use a conventional shade chart for our Alpine whitening clients anymore. You have probably seen the porcelain tabs in graduated shades that San Diego tooth whitening dentists use to determine appropriate, yet natural looking, shades for tooth restorations. We now use a shade guide with levels significantly whiter than the guides we have used in the past. Tooth whitening is not a gimmick; it is safe and incredibly effective. San Diego teeth bleaching clients can maintain a white shade that equals the brightness of the ‘tooth’ models you see in dental marketing.

San Diego tooth whitening following twice-yearly cleanings is the most affordable cosmetic dentistry procedure. Tooth bleaching in San Diego is comparable to the cost of a professional hair weaving and cut, but when you consider the transformation; there is no comparison! Flash your gorgeous, sparkling smile, and no one will even notice your hair.

Straighten Teeth Fast in La Mesa

Color Braces Poorly aligned teeth? Think it takes forever for braces to straighten them? Think again. There are many new types of braces available in La Mesa. In some cases, teeth can be straightened in a few months and then, with braces off–a fantastic new smile.

If you are considering straightening your teeth, come into Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa for an orthodontic consultation. We can discuss the new types of braces. Dr. Jeff Gray will explain the pros and cons of each type and recommend the most effective (and quickest!) system for your teeth.

The first things most adult San Diego teeth-straightening clients ask about are the newer systems, sometimes called clear braces and adults braces. Invisalign and damon braces are two brand names of alternative orthodontic systems popular in San Diego. Many of our adult orthodontic patients have been embarrassed by their crooked teeth for many years and have developed a habit of covering their mouth when they smile. It is great to see them smiling confidently after they have completed treatment.

Younger clients usually have a different attitude about braces. They seem to consider braces more like a fashion accessory and are not afraid to show them off. San Diego area teens are interested in color braces and colored rubber bands braces. During orthodontic consultations, they usually ask about the possibility of a clear retainer to maintain teeth alignment after their braces have done their job.

Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa

Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa Hello! I’m Dr. Jeff Gray of Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa.

I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since 1986. Dentistry is a challenging and fascinating profession; dentists must have diagnostic skills, dexterity, extensive scientific knowledge, and good visual memory. Dentistry also requires artistic ability. In addition to the technical aspects of dentistry, I really enjoy interacting with my La Mesa dental patients.

I recognize that my clients have other choices in San Diego area dental practices, and I work continually to earn their trust and surpass their expectations.

Each dentistry client is unique. Many of my patients come in twice-yearly for an exam and cleaning. We help them maintain excellent oral health. Some cosmetic dentistry clients come to me seeking major restorative dental work. It is extremely gratifying to complete a smile makeover and see the client’s reaction when they see the result for the first time.

When I have a pre-treatment consultation with a new San Diego dentistry client, it is very informative for both of us. The patient learns the specifics about the possible procedures and I learn about the clients’ goals, concerns and expectations. Then I work with the client to develop a dental treatment plan that fits the patient’s needs, desired outcome and budget.

My dental practice is located at 8555 Fletcher Parkway #102, in La Mesa, CA. If you are looking for an experienced dentist in the San Diego area, call 619-337-7700 to schedule a consultation.

I look forward to meeting with you.


Periodontal Disease in California

Periodontal Disease in CaliforniaWhat is periodontal disease? According to an article on Wikipedia, periodontal disease is ‘the name of a collection of inflammatory diseases affecting the tissues that surround and support the teeth.’

Periodontal disease, more commonly called ‘gum disease’, is an inflammation or infection of the gums. Periodontal disease can be very painful in some extreme conditions, and can limit your ability to eat normally. In some cases, periodontal disease can affect your smile, and can create cosmetic concerns.

If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause irreversible damage. When caught early and treated, periodontal disease can be little more than an inconvenience. However the best policy is to practice good dental hygiene to keep periodontal disease at bay.

One of the best ways to avoid periodontal disease is to get a regular dental check up at your local La Mesa dentist.

Give us a call at 619-337-7700 to schedule your next dental checkup; we look forward to seeing you.

Healthy Teeth and Your Diet

Maintaining healthy teeth is an important concern for our local La Mesa residents. Healthy Teeth and Your Hayward Diet

As your Dentist, it’s my job to help you understand how to care for your teeth and to keep them healthy.

Everyone knows that maintaining healthy teeth requires regular daily brushing and flossing. Regular visits to your local dental practice is also necessary to keep watch for cavities and to help you maintain proper dental hygiene. We often forget that maintaining a healthy diet can also be beneficial for the health of your teeth.

A diet that includes foods that help your muscles and bones will also help you develop healthy gums and healthy teeth. Examples of local foods to include in your diet include foods rich in vitamin B such as breads and cereals. Foods rich in vitamin C, usually fruits and vegetables, help improve the health of your gums. Zinc and magnesium are also good for the health of your teeth and are found in foods like lean beef, fish, and poultry.

All foods increase the production of saliva. Saliva is important to healthy teeth because it helps to maintain the pH balance in your mouth. Maintaining this balance helps keep your teeth and gums healthy. Foods high in fiber also encourage saliva production as does the chewing of sugar-free gum. Gum, however, can damage unhealthy teeth or pull out dental fillings, so always use caution when deciding whether to chew gum and which brand to chew.

Just as certain diet choices in the La Mesa area can be beneficial to the health of your teeth, others can be detrimental. Foods and drinks that are high in sugars are more likely to form the acids that attack your teeth and result in decay. And while table sugar is often associated with the formation of cavities, other sugars such as glucose, fructose, and maltose are also causes, and are often found in juices and sodas. Limiting the consumption of sugars to mealtimes lessens the amount of time your healthy teeth are exposed.

Making good diet choices and limiting between meal sugar consumption can improve the health of your teeth and gums.

If you would like to learn how to better care for your healthy teeth, contact Jeff Gray DDS at 619-337-7700. We would love to hear from you.
