Fall in Love with your Smile – Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry

October 1, 2017

Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry in Costa Mesa

How many times have you found yourself scrutinizing your smile in the mirror? Or analyzing your smile in photos on Facebook and Instagram? You’ve probably thought that achieving your perfect smile is simply out of reach, but what you might not know is that there are so many implant & cosmetic dentistry options for improving your smile.

Possessing a strong sense of pride and well-being leads to more smiling and smiling is known to be contagious.  People who love their smile tend to be happier, more outgoing, and more successful.  Implant & cosmetic dentistry help you achieve these goals by improving the look and health of your smile.  So what are you waiting for?

What Treatments are Right for Me?

Common reasons people don’t love their smile include staining, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, small teeth, large teeth, gum recession, gummy smile, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, overlapping teeth, overbite, under bite, and missing teeth.  The great news is all of these conditions can be treated right in our Costa Mesa dental office by Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson.

Implant Dentistry

Dental implants are a great long-term solution to replacing missing teeth.  We strongly recommend choosing an experienced doctor and an implant made by a reputable company.  Remember, cheaper is definitely not better when it comes to your health.

We place dental implants in a 3-step process.  During step 1, we place the implant screw into the jaw and allow 3-4 months for the jaw bone to grow in around the screw like a natural tooth root.  You will have a temporary tooth during this time.

Next, we place the custom abutment and prep for the permanent crown.  The custom abutment is the anchor for the dental crown and made for the specific screw that was placed.  In the last step, we cement the permanent crown, all-ceramic, strong, natural-looking tooth, that attaches to the abutment.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is also a great way to quickly repair chips or add size or dimension to a tooth.  The bonding procedure is similar to dental fillings in that we use the same composite material and match the composite to your tooth shade for a natural looking repair in just one visit.  See Courtney D. here and Alicia M. here.costa mesa dentist - procelain veneers - implant & cosmetic dentistry - beautiful teeth - close up teeth - dental veneers - old dental bonding - dental crowns - new teeth - hollywood smile - dentist open now - dentist near me

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin-sheets of porcelain that we bond to the front of your tooth.  The great thing about dental veneers is that you can change the look, shade, and shape of your smile allowing you to choose the type of smile you want to achieve.  The veneers are custom-made just for when and to the specifications you choose with Dr. Jorgenson.  See Libby J. here.


Invisalign is also an orthodontic procedure and provides not only a more desirable smile, but a healthier one too!  Straight teeth in the correct alignment often resolves many grinding, clenching, TMJ, gum recession, and plaque/tartar issues that result from crooked or misaligned teeth.  The Invisalign process starts with a custom treatment plan with custom made trays just for you!  The teeth slowly move into the correct position until treatment is complete.  With Invisalign you also have the added benefit of being able to take the trays out to eat and to brush your teeth.  See Mike P. here.

Help! I have a Broken Tooth. Do I need Emergency Dental Care?

June 16, 2017

Have a broken tooth?  Often times patients do not come to see their dentist unless a dental condition has become urgent and painful!  By the time a patient is experiencing acute, sharp, throbbing pain, the condition is not so cute.  Whether you just broke a tooth or have had a broken tooth for some time, it is best to see your dentist ASAP!

How and why do teeth break?

Teeth can break for a variety of reasons, including physical injury, biting into a hard or tough piece of food, decay that weakens the tooth enamel.  They can chip, crack, or fracture, damaging one or more layers of the tooth, and break above, at, or below the gum line.  Fractures of the tooth root, which are not visible to the eye, are also serious and consequently damage the blood vessels and nerves that supply the tooth.  Lastly, your tooth can become loosened or displaced from their socket.

Can a broken tooth be saved?

Depending on the severity of damage to the tooth and its root and how fast you act, your dentist has more opportunities to save your tooth!  Surface chips and cracks can most often be fixed with fillings or bonding.  Cracks or fractures that extend beyond the gum line, can be more difficult to repair, requiring a root canal and/or dental crown.

Infections in decayed or broken teeth can spread to the surrounding gum tissue, jaw bone, and can even become systemic.  Your dentist can treat the infection and may be able to repair the tooth, however, some infected teeth cannot be saved.  Teeth that have lost blood and nerve supply, necrosis, are usually recommended to remove.

If the tooth cannot be saved, don’t worry!  There are many tooth replacement options available to restore your smile to its full function and aesthetic.  At Advanced Dental Care in Costa Mesa, we offer personalized treatment to your condition and budget, including dental implants, several types of dental bridges, crowns, and dentures.

When to see your dentist?

Physical trauma or injury to your face or head or excessive bleeding, swelling, or pain are serious.  Please get emergency care immediately!  When you take swift action, injuries resulting from trauma have the best chance for recovery.  In addition, swelling, extreme pain, redness, and heat, can all be signs of a serious infection.

A tooth with a large chip, crack, or break at or near the gum line, may not bleed or swell, but be very painful.  The biggest risks associated with large or deep cracks/chips is damage to the nerve and blood supply and infection.  Call your dentist as soon as possible to get in for emergency dental care!

You may not notice when you have small chips or fractures, while other chips might be sharp or jagged.  Sharp or jagged chips cause irritation to your tongue and cheeks.  You should still see your dentist as soon as possible, even if you are not currently experiencing pain.  Small cracks and chips can expose the inner layers of your teeth leaving them susceptible to decay, infection, and further breakage.

Tooth Sensitivity – Dr. Jorgenson explains it all!

August 25, 2016

Costa Mesa Dentist Talks Tooth Sensitivity

What causes tooth sensitivity?

Do you experience an occasional zing throughout the day?  Sensitivity to hot and cold?  Or constant dull, achy pain?  These are all signs you are suffering from tooth sensitivity.  Tooth sensitivity can be very unpleasant and also be a sign of a more serious dental condition.  If you’re experiencing tooth pain, Orange County Dentist Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson can help!

Tooth Sensitivity causing Dental Pain

Tooth Sensitivity causing Dental Pain

Tooth sensitivity can come in many forms and from many causes.  You can simply be sipping in air, taking a bit of your lunch, or trying to concentrate at work and you notice that something doesn’t feel right.  Tooth sensitivity, also called dentin hypersensitivity, can occur when the outer layers of the tooth, the enamel and cementum, become thin and expose the dentin layer underneath.  When dentin is exposed, the tooth root and nerve are closer to the surface and more likely to become irritated.
