Invisalign

Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign’s clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.

Cosmetic Dentistry

At Dental Care on San Antonio, we want your smile to look as good as it feels. Our dental team can help you smile with pride by effectively treating problems that range from discoloration to misalignment.

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen 

Dental Care on San Antonio is proud to be your Invisalign provider in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces for correcting dental misalignment or spacing problems.  Your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports.  Working adults are able to maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious. Invisalign Teen is specially designed to complement your adolescent patient's lifestyle, which also encourages their enthusiastic participation in a way that traditional metal braces simply can't match.

Professional Teeth Whitening with Opalescence Boost

Even the most carefully treated white teeth can fade over time or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or aging. We will work with you to determine the best teeth whitening treatment for your personal needs and lifestyle.

The Opalescence Boost system utilizes a powerful teeth-whitening gel to brighten your smile by several shades in a short amount of time. We also offer the option of using custom Take Home Trays for your whitening treatments. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home with a teeth-whitening kit.

Lumineers

If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, then Lumineers may be right for you.  Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are ultra-thin and require no grinding down of the original tooth, therefore the process is completely painless and reversible.  Lumineers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are engineered to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come. During your exam and consultation, our Certified Lumineer Dentist can evaluate your situation, explain the difference between veneers and Lumineers and help you decide what will best serve your needs.

Composite Resin and Porcelain Veneers

If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, dental veneers may be right for you. Veneers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are permanently bonded to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come. Dental veneers can also provide relief from the tooth pain associated with worn enamel.

Restorative Dentistry

Are you experiencing a toothache? Have you chipped or broken a tooth? Do you need a professional dental examination to find the cause of your pain? At Dental Care on San Antonio we offer a comprehensive suite of restorative procedures from fixing a cracked tooth to root canal therapy. These services do more than just improve the appearance of your smile. Our goal is to provide pain relief, restore function, and ensure future oral health.

Crowns

At Dental Care on San Antonio, we apply a custom, natural-looking crown (or "cap") in cases where decay or trauma has done too much damage to completely restore the original tooth. Crowns are an excellent alternative to extraction that offer long-term durability, protection from decay or cracking, and an improved, natural appearance.

A crown may be right for you if...

  • you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could require tooth removal and cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
  • you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
  • you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
  • you have a tooth that is severely discolored.

Implant Retained Dentures 

If you are looking for affordable dentures in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area, you can find them here at Dental Care on San Antonio.  Our implant-retained dentures are custom-crafted to look natural and provide greater stability that allows you to enjoy proper oral function. Our dental team will help you determine if a partial or full denture will best suit your individual needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

What is Sleep Apnea?  Put simply, it is a condition that affects the way you breathe while sleeping. Sleep apnea symptoms often include frequent, loud snoring and interrupted sleep cycles. Specifically, this is instigated when the soft tissue in the back of your throat relaxes while you sleep, causing interruptions in breathing. These interruptions usually last between 10 to 20 seconds and can occur up to hundreds of times a night. Sleep apnea is typically more prevalent in males, smokers, and the elderly; it can also cause a wide range of problems from sleep disturbance to more serious health issues; however, with advances in dental devices, this condition can now be treated and controlled.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have symptoms like pain or a clicking sound, you will be happy to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Early detection and treatment are important because some types of TMJ problems can lead to a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or even more serious conditions.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Here at Dental Care on San Antonio, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, at Dental Care on San Antonio we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution digital images and x-rays that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, periodontal disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.

Emergency Dental Care in Albuquerque, New Mexico

A severe tooth cavity, physical trauma, and other oral health problems can be incredibly uncomfortable, and we are here to treat dental issues that just can't wait for your regular check-up. Whether you're suffering from a painful cavity, cracked tooth, or a loose filling, please don't hesitate to give Dental Care on San Antonio a call! Research shows periodontal problems can potentially elevate the risk for other health issues, including diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Your health and comfort are our first priority. If you are in the Albuquerque, New Mexico area and experiencing serious oral pain, call us directly at 505-797-3000 and one of our team members will schedule a consultation with you during our regular business hours.
