If you have missing teeth in San Diego due to cavities, injury, or other reasons, there is hope for you. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or cracked, there’s nothing to worry about. Even if your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there’s hope. Cosmetic dentistry can fix all of those problems.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dr. Ortega at Marcos Ortega DDS has the competence to handle the toughest cosmetic dental issues. Since 1986, Dr. Ortega has restored and improved smiles with advanced cosmetic dentistry.

Regardless of the problem, it is usually preferable to save your natural teeth. If this is not viable, and you’re missing teeth in San Diego, we offer numerous ways for you to maintain or regain your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.

Dental Veneers

If you still have your teeth but are not comfortable with them, dental veneers might be the best answer for you. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a relatively cost-effective approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They brighten unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.

Dental Implant

A dental implant is a tooth replacement from missing teeth in San Diego that includes an artificial tooth plus an artificial root, usually made from bio-compatible titanium. With local anesthesia, the artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.

A dental implant is often the best restoration, as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often take places at the site of a missing tooth.


Most San Diego residents have heard of dentures, a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. These are customized and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth. There is no need to miss out on a gorgeous smile.
