Whether you're looking to prevent future problems, restore damaged teeth, or enhance your smile's aesthetics, our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to providing exceptional care using the latest advancements in dentistry.

Personalized Care: Understanding Your Unique Smile

We understand that every smile is unique, and so are the concerns and goals of each patient. That's why we prioritize personalized consultations before recommending any specific procedures. During your initial appointment, Dr. Vijaya Cherukuri will take the time to:

  • Discuss your health history: Understanding any underlying medical conditions is crucial for developing a safe and effective treatment plan.
  • Listen to your concerns: We want to hear your thoughts and anxieties about your smile.
  • Perform a thorough examination: This includes a visual assessment of your teeth and gums, digital X-rays to detect potential issues beneath the surface, and an oral cancer screening.
  • Discuss your goals: Do you want a brighter smile? Are you concerned about missing teeth? Knowing your desired outcome helps us tailor our recommendations.

Revolutionizing Oral Health: Advanced Procedures for Optimal Results

Dental technology has revolutionized the way we care for smiles. Gone are the days when tooth extraction was the only option for significant damage. At Smile Artistry Chino, we offer a variety of advanced procedures to:

  • Restore Damaged Teeth: Modern techniques allow us to save even heavily compromised teeth. For cavities, we use tooth-colored fillings that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. If a tooth requires more extensive repair, we can use dental crowns, custom-made caps that provide exceptional strength and aesthetics.
  • Replace Missing Teeth: Missing teeth can impact your oral health and confidence. Smile Artistry Chino offers several options for replacement, including:
  • Dental Implants: These titanium posts surgically placed in your jawbone act as artificial tooth roots, providing a stable and long-lasting foundation for dental crowns or bridges.
  • Dental Bridges: Bridges are anchored to healthy teeth on either side of the gap, literally "bridging" the space left by the missing tooth.
  • Dentures: Modern dentures are far more comfortable and natural-looking than ever before. We offer both full and partial dentures to address your specific needs.
  • Enhance Your Smile: A beautiful smile can boost your confidence and overall well-being. We offer various cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as:
  • Teeth Whitening: Professional teeth whitening treatments can remove deep-seated stains and brighten your smile by several shades.
  • Dental Veneers: Thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front surface of your teeth, veneers can address chips, cracks, discoloration, or minor misalignment, creating a flawless smile.
  • Dental Bonding: Bonding uses a tooth-colored resin to repair minor chips, cracks, or gaps, offering a quick and affordable solution for cosmetic concerns.
  • Unparalleled Comfort: Minimizing Anxiety and Discomfort

We understand that dental procedures can cause anxiety for some patients. At Smile Artistry Chino, your comfort is our priority. We offer various techniques to ensure a relaxing experience, including:

  • Local Anesthesia: Numbing the treatment area effectively reduces pain sensations during procedures.
  • Sedation Dentistry: For patients with dental anxiety, we offer various sedation methods, including nitrous oxide ("laughing gas") or oral medication, to help you relax and feel calm throughout the procedure.
  • Creating Lasting Smiles: A Commitment to Excellence

Our team at Smile Artistry Chino is passionate about exceeding your expectations. We utilize advanced technology, high-quality materials, and gentle techniques in all our procedures. We are also committed to providing clear communication throughout your treatment journey, ensuring you understand every step of the process.

Transforming Your Smile: A Palette of Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Building upon our exploration of dental procedures, let's delve deeper into the world of cosmetic dentistry offered at Smile Artistry Chino. Here, we'll unveil the secrets to achieving a smile that not only functions well but also reflects your inner confidence and beauty.

  • Teeth Whitening: A brighter smile can significantly enhance your facial aesthetics and boost your confidence. Smile Artistry Chino offers professional teeth whitening treatments that are far more effective and long-lasting than over-the-counter options. We offer both in-office whitening treatments that deliver dramatic results in a single appointment and take-home whitening kits for your convenience.
  • Dental Veneers: For more comprehensive smile makeovers, porcelain veneers offer a transformative solution. These thin shells are custom-designed to bond seamlessly to the front surface of your teeth, addressing a variety of concerns:
    • Chips or cracks: Veneers can conceal minor chips or cracks in your teeth, restoring their natural appearance.
    • Discoloration: Stubborn stains from coffee, tea, or medication can be effectively masked with veneers, revealing a bright, white smile.
    • Misalignment: Veneers can be used to address minor misalignments or gaps between teeth, creating a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing smile.
    • Uneven tooth shape: Veneers can be shaped to correct uneven or misshapen teeth, achieving a uniform and balanced smile.
  • Dental Bonding: Dental bonding offers a quick and affordable solution for minor cosmetic concerns. A tooth-colored resin material is applied to the tooth and sculpted to address chips, cracks, gaps, or minor discoloration. While not as durable as veneers, bonding can be a good option for certain cases.
  • Gum Recontouring: For some patients, an uneven gum line can detract from the overall appearance of their smile. Gum recontouring is a minimally invasive procedure that reshapes the gum tissue, revealing more tooth surface and creating a balanced, symmetrical smile.
  • Smile Design: At Smile Artistry Chino, we take a personalized approach to cosmetic dentistry. Our smile design consultations involve discussing your aesthetic goals, facial features, and desired outcome. Using advanced digital imaging software, we can create a mock-up of your potential final smile, allowing you to visualize the results before treatment begins.

Restorative Dentistry: Preserving Your Natural Smile

  • Tooth Fillings: Gone are the days of dark, metal fillings. Smile Artistry Chino utilizes tooth-colored composite resin fillings that seamlessly blend with your surrounding teeth, offering a natural and aesthetically pleasing restoration. This material is also less likely to cause sensitivity compared to traditional metal fillings.
  • Dental Crowns: When a tooth is severely damaged or requires extensive repair, a dental crown provides exceptional strength and durability. Crowns are custom-made caps that fit over the remaining tooth structure, restoring its shape, size, and function. We offer various crown materials, including porcelain and zirconia, which boast excellent aesthetics and mimic the natural translucency of teeth.
  • Root Canals: If the pulp, the inner chamber of your tooth containing nerves and blood vessels, becomes infected, a root canal procedure is necessary. This treatment involves removing the infected pulp, cleaning the root canals, and sealing the tooth to prevent further infection. Modern root canal techniques are often minimally invasive and can save a tooth that might otherwise require extraction.
  • Gum Disease Treatment: Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a common oral health concern that can affect your gums, bones, and tissues supporting your teeth. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss. At Smile Artistry Chino, we offer various treatment options for gum disease depending on its severity, ranging from non-surgical cleanings to scaling and root planing procedures.

Preventive Dentistry: Maintaining a Healthy Smile

Prevention is key to maintaining optimal oral health and avoiding future dental problems. Smile Artistry Chino offers comprehensive preventive dentistry services, including:

  • Routine Dental Cleanings: Regular professional cleanings are crucial for removing plaque and tartar buildup that brushing and flossing alone cannot reach. Hygienists at Smile Artistry Chino will thoroughly clean your teeth and provide personalized oral hygiene instructions to help you maintain a healthy smile at home.
  • Dental Exams: During your routine dental exam, Dr. Vijaya Cherukuri will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues, looking for signs of decay, gum disease, or other potential issues. Early detection allows for prompt intervention and treatment, often with less invasive procedures.
  • Digital X-rays: Digital X-rays provide a valuable tool for detecting dental problems that might not be visible during a visual examination. This allows for early diagnosis and treatment planning for cavities, bone loss, or other concerns.
  • Dental Sealants: Dental sealants are thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of your back teeth (molars and premolars). These sealants act as barriers, preventing plaque and food particles from accumulating in the grooves and pits of your teeth, reducing the risk of cavities.

Considering the Cost of Dental Care:

Understanding the cost of dental procedures is an important factor for many patients. At Smile Artistry Chino, we are committed to providing transparency and working with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your budget. We accept most major dental insurance plans and offer flexible payment options to make your dental care affordable. We can also discuss financing options for more extensive procedures.
