Complete Dental Care Offered By Dr. Ruben Mendez

When kept healthy, your smile can last a lifetime! At our Cathedral City office, Dr. Mendez focuses on helping you achieve a healthy, bright smile with a wide range of general dentistry options. No matter the condition of your teeth, we have restorative options to put a smile back on your face, and preventative services to help you enjoy stronger teeth for life.

A Preventative Focus

A great smile begins with good oral hygiene at home, but it doesn’t stop there. Along with giving you the right information and techniques to care for your smile each day, we also recommend regular checkups with Dr. Mendez. Enjoy a brighter smile with a professional dental cleaning and exam, plus digital x-rays.

Restorative Treatments and Mercury Free Materials

Whether you suffer from a small cavity or an abscessed tooth, we have a wide range of restoration options to treat and protect your smile. For cavities, Dr. Mendez recommends mercury-free fillings, made of tooth-tinted composite resin. Composites blend into your smile and bond directly to your tooth for a durable, nearly invisible restoration.

If your tooth is damaged beyond what a filling can restore, we offer several full-coverage options, including:
  • Porcelain Fused to Metal (PFM) - this “gold standard” in crown restorations is a hybrid option that takes the strength and durability of metal and covers it with aesthetically pleasing porcelain
  • Zirconia Crowns - a natural looking restoration that’s extremely strong. Its non-porous construction makes it resistant to chips, cracks or stains.
Dr. Mendez can review your options with you and co-plan which dental therapy is best for your smile.

Dentures and Bridges

Whether you’re missing one tooth or all of your teeth, our Office has the perfect option to rebuild your smile. We offer both fixed and removable dentures, as well as full and partial prosthodontics. Need a dental bridge to hide the gap in your smile? We do that, too! We even offer implant-supported restorations so you don’t have to worry about your dental prosthetic slipping out or shifting while you eat.
