General Dentistry in Pomona & Brooklyn
Preventive and Diagnostic
All of our dental crowns are milled using CAD/CAM technology to ensure the precise fit.
Dental crowns are usually completed in two visits. During the first visit, the tooth is prepared (shaved down) and an impression is taken. A temporary crown is placed while the permanent crown is fabricated. During the second visit, the permanent crown is carefully fitted and then cemented into place.
For multiple missing teeth, an implant may be used to anchor the bridge.

Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth. This in-office whitening treatment uses a laser to facilitate the whitening process and allows the dentist to customize aspects of the treatment to each individual patient’s needs to provide the best possible results.
Sometimes when the cavity is very large and makes it to the nerve, a baby tooth root canal may be needed to save the tooth instead of extracting it. Baby teeth are needed for chewing, speech, space maintenance and self confidence for a child, therefore we always try to save them whenever possible. We deliver this treatment in a painless and gentle manner, always.
Tongue, lip or buccal ties can have many negative consequences in infants, children, adolescents and adults. A tethered oral tissue can cause issues in nursing, feeding, speech, airway, sleeping behavior and many other problems. We take time to address any functional issues a patient may have specifically in relation to a tongue, lip or buccal tie and never push for unnecessary treatment.
Our goal is to provide your child with a safe and comfortable dental experience. Some children have some anxiety when it comes to seeing a doctor, and we understand. We are happy to offer nitrous oxide sedation, better known as laughing gas to ease any anxiety or fear. It is a mild, sweet smelling gas and is one of the safest drugs for most patients that has been used for many years in medicine. The laughing gas is inhaled and mixed with oxygen through a mask placed on the child’s nose.
To treat TMJ disorders, first the cause has to be identified. Improper alignment due to genetics or injury, arthritis affecting the cartilage in the joint, malocclusion, and trauma can all cause TMJ disorders.
Advanced Platelet Rich Fibrin (a-PRF) is a new approach to tissue regeneration. A-PRF derives from the centrifugation of a patient’s own blood and contains growth factors that influence wound healing. This is important in tissue repairing mechanisms. The use of a-PRF in surgical practice could have beneficial outcomes, reducing bleeding and enhancing soft tissue healing and bone regeneration.

When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument. When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth-whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth-bleaching agents.
