Facts About Dr. Friedman’s Porcelain Crowns & Veneers & Our Featured Smile of the Week Featuring the Hardest Procedure for all Cosmetic Dentists…
This patient came to us with three existing root canals as a youngster. Three of his upper four teeth were damaged in an accident when he was younger. After the three root canals were completed as a child, the teeth turned grey. This is normal with root canals because the tooth is basically dead from the removal of the nerve inside the root of each tooth. Bonding was placed when he was younger & now that he is grown & his face has matured, the patient is ready for a more permanent, natural procedure for his smile.
Dr. Friedman placed three upper full coverage porcelain crowns with his unique “blocking out method” to block the grey tone of the patient’s root canal teeth & one porcelain veneer giving this patient a natural smile all while saving his natural teeth in the process. This is the most difficult for cosmetic dentists using the latest in porcelain restoration materials because the best porcelain materials are translucent. Without Dr. Friedman’s “blocking out method” the dark tone of the root canal teeth would show through usually not matching the veneer tooth to which the root is much lighter in shade because of no root canal. As you can see, this “blocking out method” worked beautifully and his upper four teeth match the rest of his smile that we whitened before the porcelain was placed with our in-office, Zoom teeth whitening procedure.
~Fact 1) Dr. Friedman is able to change your smile shape, tooth color, smile width, & straighten teeth in as little as two visits with porcelain restorations. Bonus: The porcelain restorations Dr. Friedman uses will never, change color, shape or size, no matter how much RED Wine you drink…..EVER!
~Fact 2) Dr. Friedman uses Cad Cam 3-D technology to build your porcelain restoration/s for the perfect fit that feels & looks just like your natural teeth. Bonus: (No messy impressions for your crown, veneer or porcelain restorations)
~Fact 3) Dr. Friedman uses the strongest porcelain material available to state of the art dentists that are free of all metals often used by other dentists. Bonus: (No grey lines showing at the gumline, & your crowns & veneers will not “glow” in photos like metal filled crowns do, but they will blend with your natural teeth in your smile line making for great photos every time)
~Fact 4) Dr. Friedman is so confident in his technology, materials, & skilled workmanship, MOD Squad Dental offers a warranty to all their patients after treatment.
Bonus: Think this one speaks for itself!

Shoes are Different Sizes for a Reason… Worth the read…
We were thrilled to work on this little gem last week. Revisit our blog later in the week for her after photos.
More importantly, this patient and daughter wanted me to share her story so others can learn from her almost huge mistake. This patient visited her regular dentist of many years and was told that she needed the latest dental treatment often referred to as “All on Four”. This procedure involves extracting all existing teeth including roots and placing 4 implants on the upper arch and 4 implants on the lower arch with both an upper and lower snap on denture. As she sat there in tears contemplating how she was going to refinance her home to be able to afford the 40,000 quoted of “needed” treatment, she phoned her daughter with the news.
Her daughter, our existing patient, recommended seeing Dr. Friedman for a second opinion.
As you may guess, after reviewing her xrays, Dr. Friedman did recommend some extractions for decay. But Dr. Friedman recommended 3 extractions vs. the 23 she was previously quoted, some porcelain restorations consisting of crowns and veneers but most importantly….she was keeping 20 of her original teeth giving her the best quality of life.
The entire office was moved by her procedure and we can not wait to share the remaining of her dental journey with MOD Squad and Dr. Friedman.
If you or someone you may know is about to invest in dental treatment and would like a complimentary second opinion, phone Jess today 858-547-0070 to reserve an appointment.

Smile! You’re on candid camera! Ok, well not really, but if you were, would you smile for the camera or would you try to hide your smile? If you’re one of those smile hiders, then it’s time to do something about that so you can smile with confidence. Porcelain veneers conceal the smile you don’t want to show and reveal a new smile that you wouldn’t think of hiding. Dr. Greg Friedman and his team at MOD Squad Dental have created beautiful smiles for many people in and around San Diego, CA, and they can do the same for you.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are made of micro-thin layers of dental porcelain or ceramic that are bonded to the facial surface of the teeth in your smile zone. As such, they cover a number of cosmetic smile flaws including teeth that are chipped or slightly cracked; stained or discolored teeth that have not responded to teeth whitening; somewhat crooked teeth; and teeth that have gaps in between them. In addition to covering damaged teeth, veneers also help protect those teeth from further damage.
Porcelain Veneers in San Diego, CA
Once you and Dr. Friedman determine that porcelain veneers are the best cosmetic dentistry option for you, you are on your way to a beautiful new smile. It usually only takes two visits to complete the process of having your veneers placed. At the first appointment, Dr. Friedman will take an impression of your teeth that our dental lab will use to fabricate veneers that are a perfect fit and match for you. Then, he will prep the teeth by removing a minimal amount of enamel, so your veneers will lay flush with the rest of your teeth. After this appointment, you’ll wear temporaries until your permanent veneers are ready. Then, you’ll return to MOD Squad Dental in a few weeks to have your permanent veneers bonded in to place. With your new smile, you’ll be looking for the camera!

Everyone is familiar with before and after photos. Does your smile currently look like a before photo? Do you want it to look like an after photo? Then porcelain veneers from Dr. Greg Friedman at Mod Squad Dental in San Diego, CA, may be the cosmetic solution you need.
Porcelain veneers are used to correct and cover up a variety of dental flaws from chipped and cracked teeth to teeth that are misaligned or have uneven and large gaps between them. And with our financing options—including cash, check, credit and debit card, most major dental insurances and third party financing—porcelain veneers may the best option financially for you, as well as cosmetically.
Porcelain Veneers in Two Appointments
For most patients, Dr. Friedman can complete the entire process required for your new smile with porcelain veneers in only two visits. Porcelain veneers are made of micro-thin layers of dental porcelain that are created in a dental lab. For a natural looking smile, Dr. Friedman will match your veneers to your existing tooth color. In addition, he will take an impression of your teeth to make sure the veneers are the correct size and shape for your mouth and facial features.
Once the dental lab fabricates your custom designed porcelain veneers and sends them to Mod Squad Dental, you’ll return to the office for your second appointment. Dr. Friedman will prepare your teeth for the veneers and carefully cement them into place. If necessary, he can further trim and shape your veneers for a perfect fit. When completed, you’ll have the “after” photo you’ve always wanted with a picture perfect smile thanks to porcelain veneers.

When this patient was ready for her smile make-over she knew exactly who she wanted for her dentist because Dr. Friedman has already restored the smile of her grandmother, uncle, and other family members. This patient did not particularly like her smile and wanted the space closed between her front two teeth. This patient also had a very strong muscle (frenum) that caused her front two teeth to separate and restricted her upper lip from raising when she smiled.
During her complimentary smile consultation, Dr. Friedman discussed braces with a surgical procedure (frenectomy) to release the muscle above her two front teeth. The patient and mother were not interested in braces and wanted porcelain for her smile. Dr. Friedman completed the frenectomy along with miner gingivectomy (removal of extra gum tissue), and placed upper 8 porcelain veneers giving the patient a natural beautiful smile.
