Welcome to Noriega Dental! Our office goal is to create and maintain a comfortable environment where patients can make educated decisions towards their dental health. We believe it is a critical role that requires both the doctors' and patients' participation to ensure success. Our dental team will work closely with you to help you achieve your personal goals. Armed with the proper knowledge, we feel anyone can maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.
We have proudly served the dental community since 1997. Over the years we have successfully completed countless dental procedures, many of them cosmetic in nature. Patients who are happy with our office have referred family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. We have numerous patients that have been here for over 15-20 years. Most are local, but many from out of town, some even from out of state. We are very blessed to have great and loyal patients that entrust their dental needs in our practice. Our formula for success all these years is to offer quality dental care at an affordable price.
We strive to uphold and maintain the highest standards in dental care because that's what our patients deserve! We continuously mark high ranks among many dental insurance companies when it comes to infection control, standard of care, treatment planning and case outcomes. Our office willingly complies with regular office inspections to ensure that we are up-to-date with the latest standards regarding sterilization and cross contamination processes recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
We look forward to meeting with you and providing the specialized care that you may need. Should you find that our location is not convenient, we can recommend one of our other office locations to you. We are a part of a group of 5 dental offices with 20+ dentists that serve tens of thousands of patients. Our other locations are: Van Ness Dental located at 2243 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, South Van Ness Dental located at 240 Shotwell Street in San Francisco, San Antonio Dental located at 530 Showers Drive in Mountain View, CA & Reach Dental located at 4200 Klose Way in Richmond, CA.
Your initial visit to our office will consist of a consultation to explain your diagnosis and treatment options. On occasion, and time permitting, we may be able to provide treatment on the same day. If, however, you present with a complex medical history or require extensive care, we may need to schedule a follow-up visit to ensure we are able to fully commit our time to suit your dental needs. Please be prepared with copies of any previous dental x-rays and a list of current medications you are taking.
Crown & Bridges
The most conservative approach is always to do a filling, however often times larger fillings may tend to wear down resulting in the need for a full restoration. Our goal is to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible as we re-inforce them with crowns OR bridges in the event you have a missing tooth. We have much experience with porcelain fused to good quality metals as well as an
even higher success rate with fully fused porcelain crown and bridges.
Here at our office, we like to take the most conservative approach necessary. That means focusing on thorough examinations and taking preventative x-rays only when necessary.
There are many options available should you require a filling. Whenever possible, we try to steer clear of the fillings that contain mercury. Those fillings are more prone to leakage resulting in further tooth destruction when trying to repair later. We have found much success when using high quality tooth colored resins which can be bonded and sealed to your natural tooth surface creating a natural, yet durable result that can last for many years.
A whiter, brighter smile is a simple way to boost your confidence. We offer one hour Zoom whitening that can improve your teeth's natural color by up to 5 shades! With the latest improvements in whitening gels we can whiten your teeth painlessly and with minimal sensitivity. Inquire about a no risk assessment.
