Smile Makeover/Cosmetic Dentistry
We care about every aspect of your smile! While we work very hard at recreating natural oral structure and health, Dr. Fallah and our staff also recognize the need for aesthetic beauty. When you visit our North County Coastal office in Carlsbad, we can plan your perfect smile makeover based on precise images and x-rays and thorough understanding of your goals and expectations.
This innovative technological advance has changed the way we perform cosmetic and restorative treatments with crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. CEREC gives us the ability to create lifelike restorations right in our office. The process does not require multiple visits, letting you get back to your normal schedule with your smile intact.
More than time saving, CEREC treatment provides you with the most natural appearance as well as quality that will last. Restorations are made with a high quality, durable, and natural looking porcelain that matches the hardness, and beauty of your natural enamel. The bonding process that is used to adhere your veneer, crown, or other prosthetic to the tooth in question is also a key factor in achieving longevity.
Cosmetic dentistry changed a great deal with the development of ultra-thin porcelain veneers. A veneer covers only the front surface of a tooth, which means that the overall process is much more conservative than placing a full crown. Dr. Fallah may recommend veneers if you want to close a gap between two teeth, disguise chips or cracks, or you need to improve the shape or size of a tooth. In some instances, veneers are ideal for the restoration of your brightest, most healthy looking smile.
We use porcelain to create veneers because this material is extremely strong, making it ideal for the front teeth responsible for biting. Porcelain allows us to cover a tooth without losing the natural translucency you would expect to see in your smile. Dr. Fallah has extensive training and skill in the enhancement of teeth. We are happy to consult with you about veneer treatment!
A smile makeover may involve finding a suitable form of tooth replacement. For many of our patients, this may be found in a partial denture or bridge. We are very careful in the way we perform all forms of care because our goal is to move you into a healthy smile that will provide functional chewing, comfort and confidence. Partial dentures are used to replace a number of teeth in the mouth. Made with precision in our dental laboratory, the final partial denture can be affixed to remaining teeth in a way that achieves the comfort and stability you deserve.
Full mouth reconstruction
Dr. Fallah is known for treating patients from our local Southern California area as well as from other states and countries. Our reputation for successfully handling complex cases has been earned through several years of personal care provided to men and women who came to us feeling frustrated and hopeless.
Every patient requires a unique level of care in order to address their dental condition. We determine what is needed by performing a thorough consultation and examination, which includes x-rays and advanced imaging as needed. Dr. Fallah listens to each patient’s expectations and designs care accordingly. An important aspect of full mouth reconstruction is patience.
Dr. Fallah is meticulous about the method in which old restorations are removed, using the Huggins Protocol to ensure safety for the patient and for our staff. He is also particular about the process of restructuring the smile, creating a wax-up model of alterations as discussed in the consultation and planning visit. Before patients make their final decision about care, they get to "try on" their new smiles, in the form of temporaries, and suggest changes as they wish before we order final restorations from the dental lab. The time we take in planning the ideal proportions, color, size and shape of veneers and other restorations leads to the best result for each patient.
The health and the appearance of your smile can be improved in a healthy, holistic way. Contact us in Carlsbad Village to schedule your private consultation with a dental team that cares about the longevity of your oral and systemic health.
Dr. Al Fallah
A few years ago I had one of my front teeth repaired by Dr. Fallah. His color match and technique for my chipped tooth was so good that I still cannot tell which one he did!
Dr. Fallah consistently demonstrates integrity, knowledge, and kindness. He is an outstanding talented dentist.
