Smile makeovers happen every day at Brea Dental Group. Our dental team can turn your dream smile into a reality with affordable cosmetic dentistry. Anyone who wants a better looking smile can benefit from the various cosmetic dental treatments we have on offer.
We offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help you maintain optimal teeth alignment and jaw health. From classic metal braces to discreet clear ceramic braces to virtually invisible Invisalign aligners, we will recommend an ortho treatment that is best suited to your needs.
Whether you need help with a problematic tooth, improvement for an unhealthy jawbone, dental implants, or otherwise, our treatments can improve your smile (and your life) in a number of ways.
Did you know that dental problems are associated with bone loss, infection, and even heart disease? Oral health affects your overall health in many ways. Great oral hygiene is the best way to protect your smile and your entire body. Here at Brea Dental Group, we focus on prevention, and we stress the importance of regular teeth cleaning and exams.
Root Canal Therapy
Endodontics, or root canal therapy, is the removal of infected tissue in the center of the tooth. Instead of extracting the damaged tooth, our endodontist will perform a root canal procedure to save it. Extraction may seem like the obvious solution when there is extensive damage, but removing a tooth can actually be more expensive and complicated.
Teeth discoloration is a common problem that can ruin an otherwise healthy smile. Discoloration is a natural consequence of aging, but it can also be caused by excessive consumption of certain foods and drinks, tobacco use, genetics, and some medical conditions. If you are unhappy about the color of your teeth and want a brighter, whiter smile, we offer professional in-office teeth whitening.
We recommend porcelain veneers for the ultimate smile transformation. Because we have our own CEREC system and milling machine, we can do veneers in one visit. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front of the tooth, changing its color, shape, and appearance completely. We offer both regular cosmetic porcelain veneers and minimally-invasive no-prep veneers.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that are designed as replacement tooth roots. They can be used to replace individual missing tooth or several teeth. Because implants are embedded in the gums and bone, they are the most secure foundation for replacement crowns, bridgework or dentures. Getting dental implants is like growing new teeth.
Crowns & Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are used to restore the appearance and function of damaged or missing teeth. At Brea Dental Group, we provide beautiful, high quality restorations to create stunning and healthy smiles.
Air Abrasion Fillings
Have cavities but afraid of the drill? Air abrasion is a drill-less and virtually pain-free technique that we use to remove tooth decay and to perform other procedures. Air abrasion generates no heat, pressure, or vibration, and greatly reduces the chances of a tooth chipping or fracturing, which can significantly increase the life span of a filling.
Invisalign aligners are a popular alternative to metal braces for adults, kids and teens. These clear aligners are virtually invisible, and can easily be removed while eating, brushing, and flossing.
About Oral Care the benefits of maintaining great oral hygiene
There is increasing evidence showing a link between oral health and general health. Your mouth is part of your body, so it makes sense to maintain great oral health. Aside from regular brushing and flossing every day after meals, regular checkups with a dentist and hygienist are key to keeping your mouth (and body) healthy and your smile beautiful. Here are several reasons why oral care matters:
- Healthy gums for a healthier heart
- A healthy mouth could mean a healthier pregnancy
- There’s a two-way link between gum disease and diabetes
- Detect oral cancer before you have symptoms
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Safe and effective on-site surgery
Sometimes a tooth cannot be easily saved or patched via conventional methods. While extracting and replacing teeth entirely is often a last resort due to cost, dental implants are considered to be the ultimate teeth replacement solution as they most closely mimic our natural teeth. Implants are tiny rods or screws that are embedded and allowed to integrate into the jawbone. A dental bridge, crown or denture is then attached to the dental implant. Implants restore almost 100% of your chewing ability, help preserve jawbone density, and won’t slide off when you’re speaking or eating.
Orthodontics & Endodontics Our specialists have your needs covered
Do you want straight, even teeth but not sure which orthodontic treatment is right for you? Our friendly and professional orthodontic team is here to help. Brea Dental Group offers several teeth straightening options that fit your busy lifestyle. We have traditional braces, Invisalign aligner therapy, and 6-month fast braces.
Endodontic therapy is performed under local anesthetic, and treatment is no more uncomfortable than getting fillings. Our endodontist will drill a hole in the tooth, remove decay and bacteria, clean the area, seal it with filling material, and restore the tooth with a crown.

Dental Implants are Comfortable Posted by Gregory Peterson
Dental Implants are Comfortable
Patients who have their teeth extracted say it is more difficult compared to replacing implants. The advances of today’s technology mean both extractions and dental implants are easy to sit through and heal following treatment.
While surgery may seem scary, patients are delighted to feel almost no pain during the procedure. An experienced dentist such as Dr. Saghatchi takes the time to learn his patients’ desired wants, needs, concerns, and goals before examining their teeth. We employ the most modern level of technology to perform thorough exams, which are necessary for a successful and comfortable treatment.
To further alleviate the process and make it easier for the patient, the doctor employs IV sedation, antibiotics, pain medications, tranquilizers, and nitrous oxide. You are regaining a lost body part when you choose to have a dental implant. The additional time spent planning for the procedure will help you accommodate financial costs and make you feel like you have made the right decision. With the source of pain or infection eliminated, the treated area will be experience more comfort.
The long-term benefits and advantages of dental implants are clear, numerous patients are happy to recommend this treatment to their fellow peers.
Protecting Dental Implants from Bone and Gum Disease Posted by Gregory Peterson
Gum disease found around dental implants is known as mucositis and can cause bleeding, tenderness, pain, swelling, or redness of the gum tissue. An essential step to catching disease early is to perform peri-implant probing consistently. Frontal inflammation found on dental implants is not a healthy sign.
A dental implant requires attention and regular thorough cleaning as much as a natural tooth. Removing residual cement found on the crown, bridge, or prosthetic tooth can be helpful for removing most mucositis.
For increased prevention against mucositis and peri-implantitis, you must spend increased time and attention on cleaning dental implants. Effective brushing and flossing can produce the best results in preventing gum and bone disease. Differences in brushing techniques can make significant differences in results.
The Advantages of All-on-4 Dental Implants Posted by Gregory Peterson
All-on-4 Dental Implants are the ideal and affordable solution for replacing missing teeth if you have insufficient bone density. Patients who cannot afford dentures can now benefit from the tooth replacement solutions provided by All-on-4 Dental Implants.
All-on-4 dental implants have been in use for over a decade and are time tested with their 98.5 percent success rate. They are a less expensive option than single implant procedures and are more secured, preventing them from slipping around the mouth, which can happen with regular dentures.
There is a minimal recovery time following an All-on-4 procedure. This makes them convenient for time-pressured patients and will restore optimal chewing functions, prevent further bone loss, and improve your confidence.
To experience the benefits of All-on-4 dental implants, call our Laguna Hills office to schedule your consultation.
