SERVICES

Mercury Filling Removal

We use a safe protocol to remove amalgam fillings without the dangerous release of mercury and replace them with tooth-colored biocompatible materials like Emax.

Sedation Dentistry

We offer various sedation techniques to ensure patients' comfort during dental procedures tailored to each patient's unique needs and overall health condition.

Zirconia Implants

Are you allergic to metal or want a more natural-looking implant option? Zirconia dental implants offer several advantages: They're metal-free and biocompatible, won't cause any of the discolorations that titanium implants can, and are corrosion—and bacteria-resistant.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone is a naturally occurring molecule (O3) used in many industries to disinfect water or surfaces. It can kill bacteria, including those that cause tooth decay. Able to reach parts of the tooth that traditional instruments can't, ozone gas is a quick, painless, and affordable alternative to conventional drilling and filling.

Clear Aligner

Clear aligner therapy is an orthodontic treatment in which clear alignment trays gradually move your teeth into the desired position. It involves professional supervision every step of the way.

IV Nutrient Therapy

Replenish your body and bolster your immune system with nutrients like Vitamin C, Glutathione, and B Vitamins while you undergo treatment. Dr. Vane can also administer anti-inflammatory medications via IV or intramuscularly to help with pain, inflammation, and prolotherapy.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Consider Dr. Nicole Vane for your cosmetic dentistry needs. With optimal education, experience, and expertise, she utilizes cutting-edge techniques and technologies for smile transformation.

Same-Day Crowns

Dr. Vane can create a custom crown in a single visit using innovative technology and her extensive experience. Digital scanning produces detailed images of your teeth, resulting in beautiful restorations that blend seamlessly with your smile. Contact your dentist in Encinitas, CA for more information.

Teeth Whitening

Are you tired of hiding your smile because of stained or discolored teeth? Look no further than Moonlight Beach Dental for professional teeth whitening in Encinitas, CA. Our team, led by Dr. Nicole Vane, is dedicated to helping you achieve a brighter, more confident smile.

Extractions

At Moonlight Beach Dental, we provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for our patients who need to undergo tooth extraction. Your comfort and safety will always be our top priority.

Veneers

Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that dentists use to cover imperfections in the teeth. They hide fractures, cracks, stains, and discoloration, leaving you with a beautiful smile. They're permanent fixtures that can only be installed and removed by a professional dentist in a clinical setting.

Root Canals

A root canal is a procedure that removes decay and infection from the inside of a tooth. This may sound intense, but with our minimally invasive approach, we are able to restore your teeth quickly and without the discomfort of outdated methods.

When my previous Dentist retired a couple of years ago, I was referred to Dr. Vane and the staff at Moonlight Beach Dental by a friend and couldn’t be happier! They took the time to make me feel comfortable and put me at ease and now I actually look forward to my visits.
