Dental Services

  • General Dentistry

    Whether you’re in need of general dental services like fillings and crowns, implants, gum disease treatment, cosmetic dentistry, or more, we can help you achieve your optimal oral health goals. Our highly-trained dentists in Encinitas are ready to deliver exceptional patient care at our state-of-the-art office.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry

    At Espire Dental in Encinitas, we take pride in giving confidence back to our patients. Our cosmetic dentistry services can resolve numerous issues with your smile, including cracked or chipped teeth, misalignment and uneven spacing, and discoloration. We offer a cosmetic dental experience that’s convenient and safe, and many of our procedures are pain-free with quick or no recovery periods.
  • Dental Implants

    At one time, when a person lost a tooth, they had limited options. They could have no tooth or get removable dentures, and that was it. Today, however, patients can have one or more teeth replaced with dental implants for a more natural look, feel, and function of their teeth and gums. While the concept of implant dentistry may seem newer, dental professionals have been perfecting it for decades. Modern dental implant procedures can improve your oral health, confidence, and overall quality of life. Our expert implant dental providers in Encinitas can show you what's possible for your smile.
  • Sedation Dentistry

    If you feel nervous or anxious about going to the dentist, we understand. For some, going to the dental office for an appointment is like any other day. For others, it can be terrifying, bringing back bad memories that cause them to avoid the dentist altogether. It may seem like skipping regular cleanings and checkups can help lessen dental anxiety. But in reality, skipping dental appointments can lead to additional dental problems, resulting in even costlier procedures. Our sedation dentists in Encinitas can provide you with the dental care you need in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere—stress-free.
  • Crowns

    Crowns and bridges are typically used for patients with decayed, fractured, damaged, or missing teeth, and they can make your smile look whole and healthy again. Since they mimic the appearance of your original teeth, you can expect long-lasting correction of your dental issues. Our Encinitas dentists can help you improve the appearance of your smile and make it easier for you to eat with crowns and bridges that fit your lifestyle.
  • Clear Aligners

    Clear aligners are a comfortable and convenient tooth straightening treatment that is virtually invisible. They are custom-made for your mouth and shift your teeth gently into the desired position. Patients change their aligners every week, allowing for quick and easy treatment. Not only do clear aligners look better than traditional braces, but they are also more efficient. Thanks to the treatment’s precise and personalized adjustments, it has been proven to work for a variety of complex cases. Clear aligner experts at Espire Dental in Encinitas can help you learn more about the benefits of this treatment and determine whether you’re a good candidate.
  • Teeth Whitening

    To help you achieve a beautiful, bright smile, we offer many teeth whitening options! For the fastest option, or if you are looking to whiten ahead of a special event, we perform in-office laser teeth whitening. Laser whitening can lighten your teeth four to six shades in a single visit. If you prefer to whiten at home or have a few weeks to get to your desired shade, we offer at-home teeth bleaching kits. The best part? All proceeds from ANY whitening service in our office go to charity! So you can feel good while looking good, too!
