Dr. Thanos Kristallis has been one of the top Prosthodontists dedicated to cosmetic and implant dentistry, treating celebrities and dignitaries for more than 30 years. He is a UCLA faculty and a board-certified specialist. If you are searching for the right cosmetic dentist, it is important to understand that board-certified specialists are not just regular dentists. Cosmetic dentists in our San Diego dental offices have at least three years of extended training and postgraduate studies. Prosthodontics is one of the only eight specialties recognized by the field of dentistry. Our board-certified specialists will carefully examine your overall oral health before doing any cosmetic procedure.
Beautiful cosmetic dentistry requires more than training and technical skill. It combines art and science to create a beautiful healthy smile that is personalized and unique. Simply creating teeth that look perfect in the abstract won’t necessarily help you to look and feel your best. You need a dentist who aims for dental health but also has a developed eye for cosmetic enhancement.
Dr. Kristallis can give you a smile that is both healthy and attractive. Every solution he recommends will be tailored to you, to enhance your overall facial appearance, shape and profile.
At the San Diego Dental Health Center, we incorporate laser dentistry practices into our treatments and use lasers for gum and bone contouring and whitening gel activation. Lasers allow us to improve procedural outcomes and benefits patients by managing and reducing pain, providing a speedy recovery, and reducing inflammation. In addition, laser dentistry can be helpful for patients with TMD and other oral-related pain.
Reconstructive dentistry is a branch of dentistry where our dentists restore beauty, function, and overall health to a smile after it has deteriorated, due to age wear, trauma or oral disease. We offer a range of reconstructive options including fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants. The type of restoration a patient requires will vary based on each patient’s specific needs. However, patients that have extensive damage can receive a smile makeover. This procedure includes a combination of reconstructive options to fully restore the mouth.
Sometimes accidents happen, and teeth can break. Fortunately, we offer restorations for broken teeth. A broken tooth not only detracts from the rest of your smile but can alter the strength of your bite and lead to the need for a tooth extraction. Whenever possible, we try to save the tooth before extracting it. We offer dental bonding, crowns, and veneers for restoration which all restore appearance and function to your natural smile.
