At Marcos Ortega DDS we see many San Diego children and teens with serious mouth and tooth injuries that could have been prevented had they been wearing a mouthguard. When a tooth is knocked out or broken, speaking, eating, and smiling can become very difficult.
I am Dr. Marcos Ortega and I recommend that San Diego parents encourage their children to wear mouthguards when participating in team sports, skateboarding, skiing, and ice skating. Ask us about custom mouthguards that will fit your child perfectly and offer excellent protection. Stock mouthguards found at most San Diego sporting goods stores are also an option, they just might not fit as well.
If you or your child is in need of cosmetic dentistry due to an injury or an accident, my staff and I at Marcos Ortega DDS offer many restorative options.
If the tooth is cracked, porcelain veneers may be an option. This procedure is done by bonding a custom-fitted porcelain veneer to your tooth or teeth. This can cover a crack, chip, or discoloration.
Cosmetic bonding is also an option for a chipped or cracked tooth. A composite material is matched to your tooth color and then sculpted around your existing tooth to repair the crack or chip. This procedure is less expensive than veneers and gives beautiful results.
If a dental crown or dental implants are required to repair your tooth, my staff and I at Marcos Ortega DDS will provide quality crowns made from high-strength ceramic or porcelain with beautiful shape, color, and translucency.
Marcos Ortega DDS has been offering family, cosmetic dentistry and emergency dentistry to the people of San Diego since 1986. My staff and I would love to serve you and your family. We invite you to contact us today to schedule a consultation.
