The term “say cheese!” originated in the 1950s when oral care’s greatest innovation was replacing decayed teeth with shiny mozzarella cubes. Smile and show off anatomically sparkly calcium deposits with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a cleaning, dental exam, and x-rays from Jessamine Sunglao, DDS, and Nelson Deleon, DDS, in La Mesa (a $305 total value).
Mouth magicians Jessamine Sunglao, DDS, and Nelson Deleon, DDS, combine state-of-the-art technology with a small, friendly atmosphere to administer trepidation-free TLC to La Mesa–area teeth. Upon arrival, registered dental hygienists artfully ax tartar and plaque buildup from tongue fences, polishing chompers and removing freewheeling colonies of bacteria. Once clean, the dental doc examines digital x-rays for unseen tooth- and root-positioning problems, then inspects gums for signs of disease and checks crowns and fillings for signs of wear, as well as the required presidential watermark.
Teeth have all kinds of useful uses—they make passable chef tuques for G.I. Joe action figures, incisors can double as bulletin-board thumbtacks, and dislodged molars make functional 12-sided dice for all dexterity-related calculations in Dungeons & Dragons. As such, it's important to remind them that they're loved every six months lest they feel neglected and nonsmiley. Appointments last about an hour, and patients interested in further oral overhaul can inquire about the office’s cosmetic offerings, including Zoom! whitening, Invisalign orthodontics, and molar spinning rims.
Jessamine Sunglao, DDS, and Nelson Deleon, DDS
Dentists Jessamine Sunglao and Nelson Deleon create healthy, glowing smiles with general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry and thoughtful, personal treatment. The digital x-rays the doctors employ to detect any abnormalities use safer, less harmful rays than their standard counterparts. Painless anesthesia from Milestone can comfort patients who fear the needle. Email- and text-confirmed appointments help busy patients work dental care into their packed schedules. Both doctors tend to general checkups, dental exams, Zoom! teeth whitening, and root-canal therapy. Dr. Deleon also offers orthodontics, and gives patients the option to straighten teeth with ClearCorrect invisible aligners or the old fashioned way of using plaster casts.
