Chipped, cracked, and broken teeth can not only affect your overall self-confidence, but can affect your oral health. In addition to taking away from your smile, these dental issues can lead to sensitivity, chewing discomfort, cavities, and infections. At Otay Lakes Dental Group, Dr. Liu provides a range of advanced dentistry techniques to restore your smile and alleviate any oral health issues. Our Chula Vista patients are able to choose from veneers, bonding, gum recontouring, crowns, caps, bridges, dentures, and fillings. Call 619-656-1865 today to schedule a consultation to learn which restorative dental procedures best suit your needs.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that Dr. Liu can use to cover stains or mask flaws such as cracked, broken, or misshapen teeth. Porcelain veneers are sometimes referred to as "instant orthodontics" because they can also be applied to straighten the appearance of a crooked smile.
By applying a thin coating of a tooth-colored resin composite material to teeth, Dr. Quan Alex Liu can improve the appearance of a number of cosmetic flaws. In many cases, cosmetic bonding is more affordable and just as effective as porcelain veneers, though results will not last as long.
When a person's gums extend too far onto the tooth surface, he or she is said to have a "gummy" smile. In just one painless office visit, Dr. Liu can use a diode laser to gently sculpt the gum line into a more pleasing proportion, making teeth appear larger and the smile more brilliant.
When a tooth has been damaged by a cavity, Dr. Liu will most likely perform a root canal to remove the infected tooth pulp. To restore functionality and appearance, and to seal the tooth from further damage, a dental crown will then be placed over the entire tooth surface.
If a patient is missing one or more teeth but is not necessarily a good candidate for dentures or dental implants, he or she may be fitted with a dental bridge. A bridge is an artificial tooth that is held in place by a dental crown on either side of the gap created by the missing tooth.
At Otay Lakes Dental Group, we offer both full and partial dentures to our patients in the Chula Vista area. Unlike dental bridges or dental implants, dentures are removable replacement teeth. Dr. Liu uses the most modern materials and methods to create our patients' dentures, so they can always be assured of a comfortable fit and the most realistic appearance.
Traditional metal fillings are often composed of mercury, which, in addition to creating a black appearance, can be harmful to our patient's health. For this reason, at Otay Lakes Dental Group we use only composite, or tooth-colored fillings. White fillings applied by Dr. Liu are less likely to cause tooth breakage like with metal fillings. White fillings are also virtually undetectable which makes your smile healthy and beautiful at the same time.

I love this place! Before coming here, I was terrified of dentist and would only come in when I absolutely had to. Dr. Liu is awesome and seems to really care about his patients. He's very kind and his method of giving shots is remarkable (almost painless)! He is also a great educator and makes sure his patients leave his office with the tools to care for their own teeth. Everyone else is fun and welcoming, it's never a dull appointment. The receptionists, Gus and Pablo, are hilarious and can get you to talk about anything and everything. Leticia, the dental assistant, has great chair side manner and is very sweet. I highly recommend this dentist office!
