Teeth Whitening

Treatment Steps:

  • Pre-whitening Exam: Before deciding to have teeth whitening treatments, you must have a dental exam to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening treatment.
  • Recent Dental Cleaning: A recent dental cleaning is required in order to make sure the whitening treatment is effective as possible.
  • Color/Shade Selection: Your dentist will match the current shade of your teeth using the guide, and you can discuss which shade is most desirable and reasonable to achieve, and compare the results to the original shade as treatment progresses.

Crowns

Dental crowns are also known as “caps,” as they fit on top of existing teeth or over dental implants. Dental crowns are most often made of porcelain, a material that is both strong and non-porous (thus more resistant to staining like tooth enamel), and reflects light in much the same way as a natural tooth.

Treatment Steps:

  • First, your dentist will numb the area to be treated with local anesthetic.
  • Next, they will reshape the outside tooth by shaving and removing enough of the tooth material to allow the crown to sit on top and fit with the rest of your teeth.
  • Once this process is complete, your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory where a permanent crown will be created to match your smile.
  • Your dentist will create and place a temporary crown to seal and protect the tooth temporarily until your permanent crown is ready for placement.

  •   Dr. Hofkes is a great and nice dentist, and makes you feel very comfortable. Compared to other experiences at dentists, definitely a very positive one and I also like the use of technology to show me photos and help me understand what is happening. Would definitely recommend.

  •   I started looking for a new dentist a few months ago.  I have had bad experiences with prior dentists.  I am so happy I found Dr. Hofkes.  He is the nicest guy and very thorough.  I had a crown done and he called me the next day to make sure there was no problem.  The staff also makes sure you are always comfortable and helpful.

  •   Best dental experience ever!!

    Recently I visited this dental office to get my teeth cleaned. I was referred here by a friend who highly complimented this place. Naturally, my expectations were very high. Walking in, the office is very clean and comforting with very aesthetic features. The receptionist was very helpful as it was my first time here and showed me all the paperwork I needed to fill out. She was also very helpful with all my questions about insurance. Dr. Hofkes was very gentle and made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole procedure. My teeth have never felt cleaner! Definitely recommend this place!!

  •   Dr. Yin and Dr. Hofkes were both so caring and professional. I have been to countless other dentist and was always over charged, but not at Center Plaza Dentistry. They were fair and always went over the pricing in a way any lay person could understand. The best part was that during the whole procedure they were making sure my comfort was a priority. I have recommended this location to countless family members and they have all been so happy with their visits.

  •   I've heard that smile is the best way to make a good impression. And since I am about to start a new job, I figured I needed to take care of my yellowing teeth which is a result from my coffee guzzling obsession. I tried to get this done with my dentist in San Diego, but they didn't offer the service. And I know you can do it with an at home kit, but I always felt that my teeth weren't white enough.

    By chance, a friend recommended that I check out Dr. Yin and Dr. Hofkes to get this service and I am so glad I did. Just my luck, they are close to my family AND they take patients on Saturday. Score!

    From start to finish I felt that the whole team was very attentive and friendly. Judy, the dental hygienist was nice and gentle. I didn't expect them to take x-rays of me teeth, but I am glad they did. (More on that in a second.) Dr. Hofkes performed my whitening service. He put a mouth guard on me to keep my mouth open and dental dam on my gums to protect them from the whitening agent. He did two 20 minute sessions to achieve the whiteness I was asking for. The procedure was a lot of waiting and sitting, but luckily there are TVs to pass the time. I am totally happy with the results! My whole family noticed my bright white smile. 🙂

    Now back to my x-rays. Dr. Hofkes informed me that I had two cavities forming and I should plan on taking care of it with my current dentist. Well guess what, I just had two cavities taken care of last month, but those were the only ones that she mentioned. What, more?? How did my doctor miss this? Turns out that they have the latest and greatest equipment so that they can catch these things early. Hearing dentists who invest in the best equipment speaks volumes to how they are going to treat their patients. That's all I needed to make my switch!

    I highly recommended Center Plaza Dentistry!

  •   So I was referred to to Center Plaza Dentistry by a longtime friend due to a loose filling and boy, was it a amazing experience. Yes....I said "amazing" in reference to a dentist office. Right?  

    Facility: 5 stars. Flat out - it's the nicest and most modern dentist office I've ever been to.  The entire office had the latest dental equipment that included a standing x-ray scanner and brand new chairs. Light and airy office.

    Reception and Customer Service: Absolutely wonderful receptionist that was well prepared and efficient upon my arrive. When I departed, she was more than patient in explaining my bill and breakdown of each service.  

    Dentist: I had Dr. Jaime Hofkes check out my loose filing and found a couple of cavities that was missed by my recent check-up. Very gentle and took his time to explain the procedure and what he was about to do.  Dr. Hofkes was awesome and made sure I was comfortable the whole time.  Dr. Yi swung by to say hello and I have to say that they're such wonderful folks. Very caring and genuinely passionate about their profession and patients.

    Overall, a very positive experience and super impressed!!!

Online Appointment

  • Exam & Cleanings

    Great oral health starts here, with a dental exam. Based on this initial exam, your dentist will create your customized dental treatment plan, which will be a guide for you and your dental team going forward in order to give you a healthy mouth.

  • Whitening

    Many people are satisfied with the sparkle they get from brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, flossing once a day, and getting regular cleanings at the dentist’s office. However, if you decide you would like to go beyond regular care to make your smile look brighter, we offer several options to help make sure your smile is as bright as possible.

  • Fillings

    Dental fillings are a treatment option to help restore the function and appearance of a tooth that is damaged or decayed. Dental fillings are most commonly used to treat a cavity. Having a tooth “filled” is a very common procedure and can be completed in one appointment at the office.

  • Crowns & Bridges

    A dental crown is a type of dental restoration and serves as a component in many different types of restorative treatments. Dental crowns are also known as “caps,” as they fit on top of existing teeth or over dental implants. Dental crowns are most often made of porcelain, a material that is both strong and non-porous (thus more resistant to staining like tooth enamel), and reflects light in much the same way as a natural tooth.

  • Root Canals

    Root canal treatment is a treatment option available to “save” a tooth that has sustained damage, inflammation, or infection in the pulp, deep inside the tooth. Put simply, the damaged internal sections are removed from your tooth and replaced with material to seal the tooth. In most cases a crown is placed over the tooth to protect it from further decay and damage.

  • Extractions

    A Tooth extraction, put simply, is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Dental extractions are most often performed because a tooth has sustained damage or decay, or cannot be saved by Root Canal treatment, or to prepare for the placement of a Dental Implant. Advanced gum disease may be another contributing factor in a tooth extraction.

  • Veneers

    A veneer is a very thin, tooth-coloured piece of porcelain (like a false finger nail) that is bonded on top of your own tooth.

  • Dental Implants

    Dental implants are the closest possible alternative to actual tooth replacement. With proper care, maintenance, and regular checkup visits with your dentist, dental implants are designed to last for life.

  • Partials & Dentures

    Affordable Dentures are offered in a variety of denture styles that include full and partial dentures. Our experienced staff will help you find the best match for your needs.

  • Mandibular Advancement Devices

    Mandibular Advancement Devices for obstructive sleep apnea are often used as a substitute for CPAP or sleep apnea oral surgery. Sleep apnea mouth guards can also help prevent snoring by reducing airway turbulence. Snoring is usually an underlying symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.

    Mandibular Advancement Devices work by moving the jaw forward, which increases the size of the upper airway, thus reducing the air resistance that leads to sleep apnea and snoring.

    It is important that you visit a medical doctor to receive a proper diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea before seeking a mandibular advancement device.
