Our experienced dentist, Dr. Shahin Mahallati comes from a family of dentists. Dr. Mahallati grew up in Iran and moved to the US as a teenager. He attended dental school at USC and graduated in 1995, then moved to Orange County in 1997. Dr. Mahallati is committed to continuing education, and attends courses in orthodontics and implant dentistry. In his spare time, he enjoys yoga, traveling and spending time with his family.
At Bay Dental, we emphasize the importance of a preventive approach to dental care. We recommend biannual visits for routine teeth cleanings and comprehensive examinations. We take special care with pediatric patients to make their earliest visits to the dentist a positive, engaging experience, and offer extra protection with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Preventive treatment is the best way to keep teeth free of tooth decay and gum disease. For patients who are exhibiting the signs and symptoms of gum disease, we provide periodontal laser therapy, to remove bacteria that have accumulated below the gum line, and to restore the tissues to an improved state of health. Laser dentistry is a gentler way to deliver care as it is performed with maximum precision and minimal heat, pressure and vibration. During your checkup, your dentist will also check your jaw for TMJ disorder, a condition that inhibits the movement of the joints that hinge your upper and lower jaws. To treat TMJ disorder, we may recommend an oral appliance, which keeps your teeth slightly separated when you sleep, to alleviate pressure on the joints. For patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, we offer a selection of oral appliances that prevent airway collapse during sleep and help you to get a good night’s rest.
Not only do we provide services to improve the health and function of your teeth, we can also improve the appearance of your smile with cosmetic treatments. A beautiful smile contributes to an overall positive self-image and leaves a lasting impression in social and professional settings. We offer non-invasive teeth whitening procedures that can leave your teeth several shades whiter in just one short visit to the dentist. Porcelain veneers can correct more severe discolorations, as well as improve teeth that are chipped, too small, or slightly misaligned. We also offer high quality dental crowns, using CEREC technology, which allows your dentist to fabricate your dental restoration on-site in just one visit, eliminating the need for a temporary crown or a return visit. When missing teeth affect the appearance or function of your teeth, we can use the most effective and cosmetic approaches to tooth replacement. Dental implants are the most advanced approach to tooth replacement, preventing the issue of bone loss that typically occurs when a tooth is lost or extracted. An implant acts as an artificial tooth root, stimulating bone growth and providing support for a dental prosthetic. In addition to implants, we offer other effective and aesthetic choices for tooth replacement, such as fixed bridges and comfortable, natural looking dentures.
