At Advanced Dental Care, it is our personal mission to provide quality, compassionate dental care and provide support to our community in any way possible. That’s why #givingtuesday is an extra special day for us.
Throughout the year we participate in several programs to provide free dentistry, dental care kits, volunteer time, goods, and money to organizations we really love. Our goal is to make as many people smile as possible.
There is truly nothing more rewarding than helping others. This #givingtuesday we encourage you to experience this same reward by giving anything you can to an organization you support, a friend in need, or even someone passing by. Remember, there is no amount of giving that is too small.
Here are some of our favorite organizations in Orange County that you can check out today:
What’s better than having your Halloween candy and helping our troops too? Getting Paid! We’ve partnered with Operation Gratitude again to host our 4th annual Halloween Candy Buy Back to help say “Thank You” to our troops. It’s so simple – sell us your extra Halloween candy and we’ll pay $1/lb to take it off your hands. Operation Gratitude will take it from there.
Of course there is nothing more important than the love you commit to on your wedding day, but the memories of your wedding day will be memorialized in your wedding photos and video forever. You’ll want to look your best on the most important day of your life and forever in your photos. What’s in and what’s out – hair, makeup, wedding dress styles – those fashions change all the time, but one thing that never goes out of style is a healthy, beautiful smile!
So what options do you have to help perfect your smile? Depending on how much time you have until the big day and your desired outcomes, you may have a variety of treatment options. We offer complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultations at our Costa Mesa dental office.
At the consultation, you will meet with Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson to discuss how to best improve your smile and how much time you have. Then, our treatment coordinator will put together a custom treatment plan based on our recommended treatment and your budget.
You may be thinking that you can’t afford to have a beautiful smile, but we offer both financial and treatment options for every budget including 0% interest or low monthly repayment plans with our partners at Care Credit and Wells Fargo. We can also arrange an in-office payment plan if approved.
Call/text (714) 424-9099 or email us at email@example.com to schedule your free consultation and say “I DO” to a gorgeous, happy smile today!
Cosmetic Bonding or Fillings – which is the right fix for you?
Cosmetic dentistry can be used to quickly and easily fix imperfections in your smile. Cosmetic bonding and dental fillings can be great options to repair a chipped tooth or alter the size and shape of a tooth in just one visit! And you’re in great hands at Advanced Dental Care.. Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson is not only the best dentist in Costa Mesa, but an artist when it comes to restoring teeth with cosmetic bonding or dental fillings!
Cosmetic bonding is a procedure that uses a composite resin or a dense, formable plastic that looks and feels just like the enamel on your tooth. The composite material can be used to fill in chips or to add length or width to a tooth to achieve the size and shape you desire. With a skilled dentist like Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson, you can achieve the look you want in just one visit. Dr. Jorgenson will review the bonding process and collaborate with you to determine the size, shape, and color you desire. Then he will directly apply the composite material to your tooth and use a curing light to harden the material. Voila! You have a beautiful, strong, healthy smile!
Dental fillings are used when the tooth is decayed or fractured requiring both a clinical and cosmetic fix. Dr. Jorgenson uses the same composite resin used in dental bonding, but also removes any decay from the tooth ensuring the tooth is healthy and prepped for the bonding. Both the indirect and direct bonding techniques are actually comprised of several procedures.
Prepping the Tooth: may be necessary to trim away any decayed or sharp surfaces
Etching: acidic solution applied to make a better surface for the bonding material to adhere to
Applying the Bonding Agent: the glue that holds the composite to the tooth
Applying the Composite
Direct Bonding: the composite is placed directly on the tooth in layers
Indirect Bonding: the composite is formed outside of the mouth and then applied to the tooth
Curing: a blue light that causes the composite and bonding agent to harden together
Shaping and Polishing to Perfection!
Each step is necessary to ensure that your bonding restoration is the perfect size, shape, smoothness, and color to achieve the best function, health, and aesthetic of the tooth!
You may have heard your dental hygienist calling out numbers during your last cleaning appointment.. “2-3-2” “4-3-3” “5-6-4”. If your dental hygienist didn’t explain the procedure to you, this is called Periodontal Probing and Charting or Periodontal Measurements. Periodontal Probing and Charting is one of the hygienist’s most important tools for determining the condition of your gums, what type of cleaning you need, and measuring the success of the treatment on subsequent appointments.
