Tooth Extraction

Little To No Pain For Extractions & Root Canals? Here’s Proof

Ahh! What is that, you say? This here is an extracted tooth with a little something extra on it. The patient came in for a different treatment, but we noticed a “pimple” that was draining on the gum. That pimple was a fistula, and it was pus draining from a failing root canal that was performed years prior at another dentist.

Before & After: Replacing old crowns with modern ones

Over 10 years ago, this patient had some facial trauma as a child, and had 4 crowns done by her childhood dentist to fix it. As gorgeous as she already is, the crowns were too “gummy”, and appeared grey underneath from the way they had been done.

We redid just 4 of them, and now her veneers match her youth, they’re whiter and brighter, and the tissue has adapted much better around these.

Moonlight Beach Dental in Encinitas offers a 5-year warranty on crowns

Our crowns come with a 5-year warranty! No other dentist does this.

We now offer a 5-year warranty on our crowns! We know of no other dentist that does this. New cars don’t even come with a 5-year warranty.

If you have ever gotten a crown at another dentist, only to have that crown break in the next year or two, you know it can be an expensive, and frustrating situation.

We are very proud of the quality of care we provide. That’s why we stand behind it, with a 5-year warranty on all major work.

Before & After: See the difference of crowns done well

I think this is it… the perfect example of the difference crowns done well can make.

You can see in the before pics, how the existing crowns from another dentist make the patient look 10 years older.

And in the afters, you’ll see how by replacing just 4 teeth in a single visit, she looks 10 years younger.

Before & After: Crown replacement

This patient hated her crowns. They were done 10 years ago to mask her tetracycline-stained teeth.

She also had an open bite. Several other doctors told her she needed to have her jaw broken, braces, and 28 crowns done to restore her bite. She was very concerned about having “fake looking teeth”.

To top all that off, she is phobic, and wanted to be sedated to have any dental work.
