Celebrating Modern Restorative Dentistry In San Diego

It has now been 150 years since the first dental license was issued to Sir John Tomes. California dental patients should be grateful for the advances made in cosmetic dentistry during the past 150 years.

There was a time when San Diego blacksmiths and wig makers would also extract teeth with forceps to make a little extra money. Anyone could call themselves a dentist. Often these untrained people broke the jaws of the person they were trying to help. Ouch!

At Marcos Ortega DDS, we celebrate with the San Diego dental community and marvel at the many advances made in the history of restorative dentistry.

One of the modern treatments that has helped countless San Diego patients is invisible braces. This non-visible orthodontic therapy is custom made for each patient. They are transparent and removable and will help you achieve your desired smile in about 3 to 18 months.

I am Dr. Marcos Ortega. My training didn’t end when I graduated from dental school and opened my practice in San Diego. As a cutting-edge cosmetic dentist, I continually seek training so I can expertly perform the latest procedures. In addition, our practice uses the most advanced dental materials available.

If you are one of the many San Diego residents who has dreamed of an esthetic improvement to your smile, we invite you to make an appointment with Marcos Ortega DDS to discuss a smile makeover. Complete smile transformations are completed as quickly and professionally as possible – sometimes in just one visit!

One of our most sought after treatments at Marcos Ortega DDS is cosmetic and sedation dentistry and many San Diego folks are enjoying a brighter smile because of porcelain veneers and dental crowns.


At Marcos Ortega DDS we have been serving the residents of  zip code area 92103 since 1986 and would love to provide you and your family with professional, friendly dental care.
