Jeff Gray DDS Can Make Your Whites Whiter

Jeff Gray DDS Can Make Your Whites Whiter

Hi, I’m Dr. Jeff Gray, an experienced La Mesa general and cosmetic dentist serving the greater San Diego area. One of the most common requests I get from my dental patients is whiter teeth.

I am happy to say that La Mesa dental patients are in luck when it comes to teeth whitening in California, because cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening and veneers are safe, effective, and affordable.

Some La Mesa patients might be interested in bleaching their teeth at home. There are many affordable teeth whitening products available at San Diego, La Mesa, and San Diego drugstores. Remember that even though you are doing this procedure at home, you should discuss it with your La Mesa dentist and report any sensitivity that may occur.

At Jeff Gray DDS, we offer in-office teeth bleaching which can often be done in one visit. San Diego residents who do in-office bleaching usually appreciate the care that is given to protect the soft tissues of the mouth from the bleaching agent.

Any toothpaste that has an added polishing agent is considered a whitening toothpaste. For my patients, I always tell them to look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance when purchasing these.

As you can see, there are a lot of great ways to keep your teeth nice and white here in San Diego.

If you’re interested in any of these whitening methods or a complete smile makeover, call Jeff Gray DDS at 619-337-7700. Our friendly and professional staff will schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation at your convenience.

We hope to hear from you soon!

San Diego Wants Silver Screen Smiles

Cosmetic Dentistry San Diego

With the constant media coverage of celebrities, many San Diego dental patients are interested in having a smile like the stars. With an experienced cosmetic dentist and the right smile makeover procedures, anyone can have a smile they want to show off.

Many smile makeovers include teeth whitening. There are a variety of ways this can be done. Most San Diego area drugstores sell over-the-counter whitening strips and gels. Your San Diego dentist can recommend an effective one, or he or she may offer in-office teeth bleaching. This is a quick way to see whiter teeth in less than an hour.

For missing teeth, most San Diego cosmetic dentists will recommend a dental implant. Because a dental implant is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels just like a natural tooth. A dental implant prevents jawbone recession and the shifting of adjacent teeth.

Porcelain veneers are especially popular in the San Diego area. They cover the front of the teeth and are custom-made for each individual patient. These are useful for San Diego patients who have broken or chipped teeth, stained teeth, or gaps between teeth that they would like to hide.

Enamel shaping, bonding, and braces are other successful treatments that can be used to help your teeth look their best.

I’m Dr. Jeff Gray, trusted San Diego dentist. If you are looking for quality dental care in the San Diego area, I hope you’ll give us a call at 619-337-7700.

We offer cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants, and porcelain veneers.

Do You Have Sore Gums?

Affordable La Mesa Dentistry Every San Diego dentistry patient’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you are diligent about oral hygiene and have healthy gums, these microbes usually don’t affect your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause problems.

Gingivitis is the term for the mild gum disease. At Jeff Gray DDS, we routinely discover gingivitis in San Diego clients who are not even aware they have the condition.

The first signs of gingivitis are swollen, sore gums.

It is important for our San Diego dental patients to understand that it is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. If you haven’t had an oral examination in a while and live in the San Diego area, call Jeff Gray DDS at 619-337-7700. Dr. Jeff Gray thoroughly exams teeth and gums and takes time to discuss the results and recommendations with each San Diego dentistry patient.

Jeff Gray DDS is a full-service dental practice at 8555 Fletcher Pkwy Ste 102 in La Mesa. We provide comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry for clients who live in San Diego and the nearby communities of La Mesa, Alpine and Santee.

During your dentist consultation, we can discuss any cosmetic or restorative procedures in which you are interested. Some of the San Diego procedures that we use to create perfect smiles are porcelain veneers, orthodontics, dental implants and teeth bleaching.
