Whiter Teeth for a White Christmas

In Santa Ana a white Christmas isn’t exactly a realistic option, no matter how many times you watch Bing Crosby sing it in Holiday Inn (yes, this was way before he performed it in White Christmas in 1952). But Dr. Fong, being a merry old soul himself, would like to help with that by bringing some whiter […]

Bioclear Can Help with Receding Gums and Black Triangles

Everyone’s gums recede to some degree as we get older. One unfortunate consequence of this recession is the formation of black triangles at the base of the area between teeth. This blackness is simply the dark interior of the mouth that is now showing through thanks to the gum recession. Porcelain veneers or bonding have […]

What to Do About Black Triangles After Invisalign

It’s not unusual for a person to find that they have black triangles — dark triangular spaces between their teeth where the gum isn’t filling the space — after their teeth are moved with Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment. These black triangles are the blackness of the dark mouth showing between the teeth in spaces […]

Bridging the Gap

When a person has a single tooth extracted, some people choose not to replace it with an artificial tooth. After all, it’s just a single tooth, right? An estimated 69% of Americans age 35 to 44 have at least one missing tooth. The problem isn’t necessarily the gap; it’s your other teeth. Just like fans […]

Funny Name, Somewhat Serious Business — Gingivitis

L.A. may not be the hotbed of advertising to the degree of New York or Chicago in the East and Portland in the West, but it holds its own. L.A. firms such as Chiat-Day probably wish they had been as successful as the agency that decided to throw the word “gingivitis” at the American consumer. […]

Five Ways Invisalign Is Better Than Braces

At Dr. Fong’s Santa Ana practice our patients love Invisalign, the orthodontic treatment that moves the teeth through the use of clear plastic aligner trays, rather than the traditional metal bands and wires. Both teens and adults prefer Invisalign mainly due to the fact that wearing the clear aligners give them a “metal mouth.” But […]

Your Teeth Look Mah-vel-lous, Darling!

In Southern California, you could say we’re pretty cognizant of how we look and try to take care of ourselves. This doesn’t simply apply to our waistlines or sun damage on our skin. It also applies to our smiles. Many people who come see Dr. Fong have healthy teeth, and don’t have any pressing issues […]

Root Canals — the Unappreciated Tooth Saver

Everyone hates to hear certain phrases:   “Your mother-in-law is going to move in with us.” “Our flight will be a little bit delayed.” “The boss wants to see you, in private.”   Or “You need to have a root canal.”   Since we’re in California, people may instantly bring to mind the torture scene […]

Who Wants a Perfect Smile?

While our teeth in America are in good shape compared to most of the world, it’s still a fact that no one has perfect teeth. Well, maybe some in Hollywood do, but they cheated just a bit. They’ve had porcelain veneers placed onto the front surfaces of all of their visible teeth. In your smile, […]

Veneers, But Not Like Those at Ikea

Everyone loves to traipse around the Costa Mesa Ikea store, appreciating the design used by the company…along with their Swedish meatballs, of course. Ikea is known for its affordable furniture and much of it relies on veneers. A dresser will have a thin veneer of a fine wood masking a lesser-looking wood that is making […]
