Dental Services

  • Cosmetic Dentistry

    At Espire Dental in La Mesa, 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 La Mesa 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 La Mesa can provide you with the dental care you need in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere—stress-free.
  • Veneers

    Veneers are a natural-looking and effective way to improve the appearance of your smile. These ultra-thin, porcelain laminates permanently adhere to the front of your existing teeth. They are custom-made for you and your desired smile outcome. Your look can be customized for color, shape, and even length. Contact our La Mesa cosmetic dentists and see how a beautiful smile can improve your confidence.
  • Cerec Same-Day Crowns

    At Espire Dental in La Mesa, we use a cutting-edge CEREC machine to provide same-day porcelain dental crowns. Unlike traditional crown procedures, this system generates high-quality crowns in just one visit, enabling us to provide patients with natural-looking crowns quickly and effectively. This minimizes the number of injections required and eliminates the need for temporary crowns. The CEREC machine produces porcelain crowns that are aesthetically pleasing and exceptionally strong and durable, meaning patients won’t have to give them a second thought for years.
  • 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 La Mesa 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!
