Dental Implants

dental implants | Fontana CA DentistDental implants are the ultimate high-tech replacement for missing teeth. Because they feature a surgically implanted titanium post to replace the root, they offer benefits that can't be found with other tooth replacement options. 

Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Choosing a dental implant can be a big decision. Not only do you need to consider the quality of the crown or other restoration that will be replacing the visible portion of your tooth, but you also need to consider the quality of the provider who will be performing the surgery so you can count on the highest possible chance for success. 

At WinningSmiles, we offer complete implant treatment right here in our Fontana dental office from start to finish. Dr. Koperly is an expert at implant placement and restoration, and we feature an on-site oral surgeon, Dr. Anderson. Additionally, we use state-of-the-art imaging technology, including cone-beam computed tomography, to precisely plan your implant placement for outstanding results. If you need additional procedures to become a better candidate for dental implants, such as a sinus lift or bone graft, we can complete these right here in our dental office as well.

Cosmetic & General Dentistry

Two young boys | Kids Dentist Fontana CAAbsolutely! 

The entire family is welcome at WinningSmiles. Our dentists, along with our entire team, are fun, friendly, compassionate people who love helping everyone have a healthier mouth and smile. We'll make it easy for your child to get a strong start on their dental experience for a lifetime of good dental habits. 

Dentist for Fontana Kids

Like the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, we recommend that kids start seeing a dentist by their first birthday, preferably around the time that their first tooth comes in. While your child probably won't remember these early appointments, they allow us to keep a close eye on your child's dental development from the get-go and help normalize the dental office for your child. 

Millions of Americans are afraid of the dentist, and a lot of those fears originated in childhood. If you've never been to the dental office before, all the new sights, smells, and sounds can be intimidating! We gently introduce your child to dentistry, using kid-friendly language, rides in the dental chair, and tell-show-do techniques so they can feel comfortable with us. This helps build trust and allows the next generation to grow up without any kind of dental fear! 

Family Dentistry in 92335

If you are seeking a new dental home for your family, we invite you to call our Fontana dental practice at (909) 822-3003 to learn more about us!

In our society, having a healthy smile is only part of the equation. We know that it's also important for you to have a smile that looks good and that you feel confident about. 

Consider Cosmetic Dentistry

If you find yourself smiling with your mouth closed or using your hand to cover your teeth when you talk, it might be time to start thinking about cosmetic dentistry. While every treatment we offer at WinningSmiles is completed with an eye toward aesthetics, we also offer a range of services that focus on improving the appearance of your smile. Whether you just need a few tweaks or you're ready for a complete smile makeover, call our dental office and request a consultation with one of our talented doctors. 

Cosmetic dentistry doesn't have to be expensive or complicated. We offer services that fit every need, lifestyle, and budget: 

  • Professional take-home Zoom! whitening trays allow you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home. We offer customized trays and professional-strength gel for beautiful results. 
  • Bonding using composite filling material can repair chips, conceal discolored areas of your tooth, build up worn down teeth, and even close gaps. This treatment can often be completed in a single appointment. 
  • Veneers use tooth-shaped porcelain shells to completely transform the appearance of individual teeth. 

Cosmetic Dental Consultations in Fontana

We'll review your needs and work with you to create a customized treatment plan to help you have the smile you've always wanted. 

What is dental bonding? Perhaps you've heard the name before, but how can bonding improve your smile quickly and drastically?

Same Day Crowns & Bridges

Man holding jaw | Fontana CA DentistBroken teeth are never fun, but the good news is that they can often be saved using crowns. If the tooth cannot be saved, a bridge might be the right option to fill in the space to prevent teeth from shifting. 

Unlike in the past, we have the technology at WinningSmiles in Fontana, CA to craft crowns and bridges right here in our dental office using a system called CEREC. This system utilizes computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing technology so your dentist can design and mill your crown or bridge in a single day while you wait. 

For our patients, this means:

  • No more uncomfortable messy impressions because CEREC uses digital impressions to send images of your tooth to the designing software
  • No more temporary crown or bridge that needs to be removed
  • No more weeks of waiting for a permanent crown or bridge 
  • Immediate testing and adjustment, if necessary

CEREC allows us to restore your smile quickly so you can get back to living your life.

CEREC crowns can also be used to restore worn-down teeth or teeth damaged by decay that need more than a filling. Because CEREC crowns are crafted from tooth-colored ceramic, we can also use them to make aesthetic improvements to your smile, which might mean correcting a tooth this isn't shaped properly or is severely discolored. 

Same-Day Dental Crowns and Bridges in Fontana

We encourage you to call our dental office at (909) 822-3003 to find out more about same-day crowns and bridges in Fontana, CA!

Same-Day Emergency Care

There are several steps you can take to manage a dental emergency until you can get to our office for treatment. But the first thing you need to do when you experience anything out of the ordinary with your oral health is to call Winning Smiles at (909) 822-3003.

Here are some of the most common problems our emergency dentist in Fontana, CA treats, and how to handle them until we see you.

  • Toothache – Don't ever ignore tooth pain. Take OTC pain relievers, swish salt water around in your mouth, or try a cold compress to reduce pain and swelling until you get to our office.
  • Broken tooth – Collect the broken fragments and bring them with you to your dental appointment.
  • Lost dental crown or filling – Wrap the lost crown in tissue to keep it safe. If we see you promptly, there's a good chance we can cement it back onto your tooth. Our emergency dentist will need to replace any lost tooth fillings.
  • Knocked-out tooth – Hold the tooth by the crown only and do not touch the root. Try to gently place the tooth back in its socket; if this isn't possible, put it in the pocket between your cheek and gums, or in a container of milk or saliva, and bring it with you.

Since we offer same-day emergency care and we'll decide if you need to see our emergency dentist in Fontana, CA right away or if it's safe for you to wait until our next available appointment.

We are available to take your emergency call 24/7. Call our main office number at (909) 822-3003 to speak to a member of our team.
