At Irresistible Smiles, we have the advanced ability to address almost every area of oral health care, for both adults AND children. From routine services such as checkups and cleanings to minor repairs and major reconstruction, with our diverse team of top professionals, we’re pretty much prepared for anything!
Thank you for navigating to our newly updated website! My name is Dr. Shahin Safarian, and I am the founder of Irresistible Smiles, a full-service dental practice in the sensational San Diego area. Over the course of the past 17 years, I have been consistently polishing my medical skills while persistently building this business, which I am super proud to say includes 3 practices today.
In fact, the San Marcos location is our latest one, which we recently opened in early 2017! Our experienced experts here have already cared for many new patients who live in the local area. However, we always have room for more, including you and your family. You can take complete comfort in knowing that I’ve personally handpicked every member of my team. So, I’m certain you’ll always receive reliable consultations and the best dental care that’s available anywhere.
Responsible dental care begins with regular checkups! That is why we usually recommend going in for 2 each and every year. That way, we can carefully keep a close-eye on your oral health and properly address any issues before they progress any further. In addition, seeing our patients on a regular basis will provide us with the chance to detect and prevent any potential future problems.
Your dental health is extremely important and that’s why it is something you should not neglect. It wasn’t until rather recently, that medical research discovered evidence of the detrimental effects that poor oral health can have in other areas and vital organs of the body, including your heart. Therefore, you must always be sure to stay on top of it!
Everyone requires a reputable and reliable dentist who isn’t too far away, and if you happen to live in the San Marcos area, now you know where we are!
Some general points to consider when picking a new dentist:
These are merely some conditions to consider when picking a primary practice. Please continue reading for more useful advice and enlightening information about Irresistible Smiles!
Deciding on a Downtown Dental Clinic
A regular dental check-up will undoubtedly be the best way to find out if a new practice is a good fit for you. Though you can also get referrals from friends/family or read thru exhausting online reviews that are often unreliable, a first-hand experience is the only real way to make an informed decision on a dentist. After that, you’ll hopefully know if it’s the optimal place to go for your oral health care.
Here are some other conditions to be critical of:
- The Condition and Cleanliness of the Office and Equipment
- The Team’s Attitude
- Their Promptness – Waiting Time and Appointment Availability
- How Close the Office Is to Your Home
At your first dental clinic appointment, remember to mention ANY and ALL issues you may be having with your mouth, no matter how minor. Full mouth x-rays are almost always recommended for new patients, as they provide dentists with the necessary insight to assess a person’s overall oral health. If there are any visible issues at your exam, a good doctor will take the time to explain everything including all of your options for treatment as well as the costs involved.
Also, if you have insurance or similar assistance, call to confirm that it’s accepted at the particular practice prior to setting up an appointment. Plus, be sure to bring your card/credentials along in order for your benefits/discounts to apply!
A Capable and Caring Cosmetic Dentist
There are certain qualities to look for in a capable cosmetic dentist. For starters, since some procedures can require several sessions, you certainly want to feel super comfortable with them and their assistants Furthermore, they should be competent and caring while sharing all the details of any dental work they’re doing.
At Irresistible Smiles, our skilled Specialists are prepared to provide incomparable cosmetic dentistry care. Our ultra-modern facility features the latest equipment and technology currently available. Plus, our cutting-edge doctors continue their studies by staying up-to-date on the best ways to operate.
The following are 5 areas where our Surgeon can operate with precision:
- Caps and Crowns
- Smile Makeover
- Full Mouth Reconstruction
When carried out correctly, cosmetic dentistry can dramatically improve your appearance while curing any discomfort caused by the issue. Looking good will naturally lead to feeling better about yourself, which can be highly beneficial to your overall health. An Irresistible Smile is one ‘condition’ where being contagious could actually be a good thing!
A Durable Dental Implants Periodontist
A Periodontist is a specialized dentist who operates in a few very important areas of oral care. As their name suggests, they’re professionals in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of periodontal disease, which is a common condition. These are also the doctors that are responsible for the placement of dental implants. Due to the present popularity of implants, Periodontists have become a basic necessity for any full-service dental practice.
They are also experts in examining and treating oral inflammation, which recent studies have revealed can be related to other systematic diseases. So, if you currently have any pain in your gums, mouth sores, or other signs of a problem, we seriously advise you to pay us a visit.
Our Periodontists Specialize in:
- Sinus Repair and Ridge Modification
- Endosteal & Subperiosteal Implants
- Single Tooth to Full Mouth Replacement
Over the past two decades, we’ve definitely come a long way with dentistry and what we are able to successfully do for our patients. Due to the recent advancements that have been made, more things are possible and many procedures are actually much easier AND faster than they were before. While doctors like it when their job gets a little less difficult, patients will love (or at least appreciate) spending less time in the chair for quality dental care without cutting any corners.
Regardless of whether you need all, several, or a single tooth replaced, simply setup an appointment to see what your options are. In some cases, we may even be able to get started on the same day!
Progressive Periodontist Procedures
Our dental practice would be incomplete without our Periodontist! While every team member plays a vital role in caring for our patients, this is the doctor who does some of the more delicate and difficult dental work that others don’t. Because of this, these mouth experts must train extra-intensively before they can get certified and be fully qualified to operate.
On top of placing Dental Implants, here are some other procedures that good Periodontist can capably complete:
- Laser Treatment
- Gum Graft Surgery
- Dental Crown Lengthening
- Nonsurgical Treatments
- Scaling and Root Planing
- Tray Delivery Systems
Furthermore, in order to provide the best care currently available, the Periodontists at our practice are also REQUIRED to keep up-to-date on new techniques and technologies for all the procedures they conduct. So, you’ll smile while knowing that you’re receiving the latest treatment that’s available anywhere in the world.
They also specialize in diagnosing and treating gum disease, which is a condition that everyone needs to watch out for with age. So, come on in to see us for a periodontal evaluation sooner rather than later, especially since it IS something we recommended you do periodically!
An Indispensable Orthodontist
Another specialized doctor that a full-service practice must have on their team is an Orthodontist. These experts deal strictly in the prevention and/or correction of crooked teeth. Years ago, people typically wore braces during their teen years, yet with today’s technology, almost anyone has a chance to set things straight with our dental treatments that are truly transformative.
A shortlist of the issues and areas our adept Orthodontist is able to assist with:
- Overbite – Underbite – Crossbite – Open Bite
- Spacing and/or Crowding of Teeth
- Misplaced Midline
- Many Types of Braces Including Traditional, Damon, and Lingual
That’s only a taste of what these doctors can do for your mouth! Therefore, if your teeth are currently unattractive and/or uncomfortable, simply schedule an appointment to see how we can help. After completing a comprehensive and noninvasive exam, our exceptional Orthodontist will consult you on what the best options are for a successful fix.
Don’t wait any longer to look and feel better! Whatever your issue may be, the Orthodontists at Irresistible Smiles will implement an effective strategy for straightening everything out!
Same Day Emergency Dental Service
Here at Irresistible Smiles, we realize that accidents happen! We are also well aware that certain dental dilemmas do require immediate care. Whether it’s a mishap or a terrible tooth pain you can’t take anymore, there are some situations in which you simply CANNOT wait to see a dentist. We understand this, which is why we’re always on standby to help our patients and ease their pain with emergency dental care issues.
Rely on us when you’re in a rush for relief from:
- A Broken or Cracked Tooth/Lost Teeth
- A Bitten Lip or Tongue
- Objects Caught Between Teeth
- Severe Toothache and Infection
- A Broken Jaw
If an urgent dental issue ever occurs that requires fast attention, we will dutifully be here for our patients! From tooth infections to injuries, or practically any other problem, at least you won’t need to go too far for emergency dental service in San Marcos. Obviously, we don’t ENJOY seeing our patients under these kind of circumstances, but if we must, then we’ll turn that frown upside down!
A Dedicated Pediatric Dentist
Since I’ve assembled a diverse team of doctors for the purpose of accommodating patients of all ages, thanks to our Pediatric Dentists, we can also offer preventative dental care for children. These easy-going experts know all about oral care for kids because that is what they’re specially trained to do, of course!
Some GOOD Reasons for Going to a Pediatric Dentist:
- It Introduces Kids to Oral Hygiene and Encourages Healthiness
- For the Early Detection and Prevention of Future Problems
- They Specialize in Gentler Care – Which Makes Kids More Comfortable
So, if you have a young child or are planning to someday, keep in mind that they should see a dentist before the age of 3 or soon after developing their first tooth. Waiting for a toothache or terrible cavities to occur is NOT a good idea! Teach your kid/s about proper dental care when they’re still young and they will surely appreciate the lesson as they get older. Whenever they’re ready for their first visit, simply make an appointment with our Pediatric Dentist, and we’ll do our best to make it a positive and painless experience!
An Adept Endodontist
Endodontics has been a highly specialized department of dentistry for decades, and it is still in demand to this day. In fact, it’s such a specialized area, that even though all Endodontists are dentists, it’s estimated that less than 5% of dentists are actually Endodontists! These experts require an extra 2 years of rigorous training beyond regular dental school in order to be qualified for the complicated work they do.
A few procedures that our Endodontist can do with precision:
- Endodontic Therapy
- Root Canal
- Intensive/Follow-up Treatment
Despite the recent rise in the use of dental implants, good old root canals are still done to this day. In fact, they may even be more suitable in certain situations. Not only does a root canal cost quite a bit less than implants, more importantly, if there is any chance of saving the root of the original tooth, then we often recommend doing so. Were it not for our invaluable Endodontists, we most surely wouldn’t be able to make as many Irresistible Smiles!
Super Oral Surgeon Services
Oral Surgery is another one the specialized services that we provide with total precision here at Irresistible Smiles. This means that we won’t have to send our patients to a different practice when they develop dental problems that demand surgery. This makes us super happy because we’re able to help with all of your oral health right here in our San Marcos office.
Our certified Oral Surgeons are fully qualified for the following operations:
- Wisdom tooth/teeth Removal
- Tooth Extraction/s
- Bone Grafting
- Maxillofacial Surgery
- Corrective Jaw Surgery / Fixing Facial Injuries / Treating TMJ Disorders
For an exact explanation of what oral surgery is, here is the definition from the American Dental Association – “Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty of dentistry which includes the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.”
While surgery is no fun for anyone, neither is suffering in agony with mouth or facial pain. So, if you’re presently experiencing any sort of oral issue, then you should proceed with scheduling an appointment at our practice in San Marcos. Remember, when it comes to dental problems, what might be minor today can unfortunately become major overnight!
A Brightening Teeth Whitening Service
Another appealing service that we’ve made some awesome advancements with in dentistry is teeth whitening! And given a name such as ours, it only makes sense for us to offer this specialized service. Naturally, nearly anything that is white will eventually stain and/or become discolored over time, and unfortunately that happens to be the color of our teeth. The good news is that now it’s easier than ever to step out of the darkness and into the white!
Here Are the Top 5 Reasons for a Professional Teeth Whitening:
- To Effectively Remove Dark Stains Caused By Culprits Including Cigarettes, Wine, and Coffee
- To Look and Feel Better
- Better Results Over Whiteners You Buy in the Store and Apply Yourself
- It’s Noninvasive Yet the Effects are Nearly Instant
- Only Known Side Effects – An Irresistible Smile
Considering all these radiant reasons for getting your teeth whitened, why not give it a shot? It won’t cost a lot and the new treatments don’t cause any pain, so you’ve got nothing to lose, and an Irresistible Smile to gain. Whether they’re downright frightening, or could just use a little brightening, with an expedient appointment, our brilliant specialist will assist you with a professional tooth whitening!
A Dynamic Denture Care Center
Last but not least on the list of dentistry we can proficiently assist with is denture care. While many people may think that dentures are a long forgotten procedure, they are wrong. In fact, they have made a bit of a comeback due to significant advancements that have been made with them. Oh, and in case you didn’t know, dentures are typically a one-piece replacement for an original row of teeth, whether it’s the bottom, top, or both.
4 Dynamic Details on Dentures:
- There are different kinds currently available including Immediate and Conventional
- Overdentures may also be an option (that way you won’t lose ALL of your teeth)
- They’re easy to care for/low-maintenance (and nobody will ever know your wearing them)
- They can dramatically improve your appearance and even permit you to chew and/or talk better
In order to see you are a prime candidate for dentures, we would first have to thoroughly examine you in our comfortable and convenient San Marcos office. If we find that dentures would be a good fit, we’ll move forward by discussing what kind we can make and the amount of work it will take. Also, if you are having issues with existing dentures, the experts here can help with those too.
Whether you’re a V.I.P. (very important patient) at our office already, (which ALL of our patients are) or you haven’t been here yet, you still know the drill. Simply dial our number and we’ll be delighted to discuss the denture details.
Sensational San Marcos
We decided to setup our newest practice in San Marcos for several reasons, but mainly because we sincerely believe that a sensational community deserves to have sensational services, including convenient and competent dental care.
Being a long-time resident of the San Diego area myself, I can see the sense of pride that is present in certain southern California communities, and San Marcos is certainly one of them. Needless to say, we’re super happy to be here helping people with their highly important oral health today.
Situated in northern San Diego County, San Marcos now has a population of nearly 90,000 people. And while that number keeps climbing at a steady rate, this safe city still has a small town feel and appeal to it. Throw in the exceptional scenery and great weather, and there is no surprise that more people continue to move here year after year.
In addition to the various recreational and cultural programs here, over the past few decades, the city has really stretched out by building 63 miles of trails and 35 new parks. With plenty of options for eating well and opportunities for pleasant activities, this place is fit for people who want to engage in healthy lifestyles, and Irresistible Smiles!
Remember, regularly visiting a good dentist is among the requirements for remaining healthy! So, why not give the pros in our San Marcos practice an opportunity to dazzle you with their dynamic dentistry skills? Whether you’re a resident that recently moved here, a native who requires a new dentist, or whatever the case may be, you can continuously count on us for all of your dental care needs!
