We are committed to understanding your concerns. We channel all our experience into exactly what you need, and deliver it with your utmost comfort in mind. Even complicated dental procedures that might drag out for months elsewhere may take a week or less with us.

From childhood through senior years, teeth can change dramatically. Encinitas dentist Dr. Michael Han and his experienced, highly trained dental staff have a genuine passion for maintaining your beautiful smile throughout your life.

Encinitas: By-the-Sea Beauty

One of the brightest jewels in a string of Southern California beach cities, Encinitas (Spanish for “little oaks”) is the home of artists, professional businesses, scientists, and educators. With a vibrant flower growing industry, championship golf, and internationally acclaimed surfing, as well as year-round temperate weather, Encinitas is a sought after place to live.

The Encinitas community is largely founded on the recognition that fine arts are essential to its culture. It opens its doors to the full range of artistic experience for residents and visitors. As a result, it has the highest density of artists in San Diego county. Creative professionals are driving new business and helping to build a high-quality sustainable environment that harmonizes with the beauty of its oceanside setting.

We love serving this aesthetic community and we are committed to putting a great smile on every face that comes through our doors.

Advanced Dental Procedures Delivered with World-Class Service

Whether you are coming to us for a routine cleaning or major dental work, the moment you step into our office you can expect to be pampered and treated like a VIP. Patients who first come to us in fear or anxiety are relaxed and calm by the time they leave. Sometimes it wasn’t that their earlier dentist was particularly bad, but the experience was impersonal – the patient was just another mouth to fix. Encinitas dentist Dr. Han understands that everything he and his highly trained team does is based on their personal relationship with you.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Encinitas

Cosmetic dentistry covers a wide range of technology and procedures but the end result is an artistically created new smile that is natural and harmonizes with your face. Even more than the eyes, the smile brings a face to life and balances its features. For professional people, a bright smile is a calling card and a sign of self-esteem. For 5 years in a row, top Encinitas cosmetic dentist, Dr. Han, has been recognized as one of the best cosmetic dentists in the San Diego area. He has been featured as “San Diego’s King of Cosmetic Dentistry” on the Health and Wellness show.

One-Visit Restorations

Utilizing the breakthrough technology of computerized 3D imaging (CEREC®), Dr. Han can create custom dental crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays while you relax and listen to music or watch a movie. These restorations are strong and durable and fit with computer precision exactly to the shape of your teeth.

Dental Implants

While dental implant technology has been around for years, the most recent state-of-the-art innovations we employ can help replace missing teeth with permanent, natural-looking teeth that give you a level of comfort and aesthetics you haven’t experienced since you lost your original teeth.

KÖR® Teeth Whitening

Why go through periodic tooth whitening every few years when you can get your smile at its whitest and have it last a lifetime? Even the toughest stains disappear and with easy periodic maintenance, your bright smile will never fade. Sensitive teeth? Not a problem. Encinitas dentist Dr. Han uses uses the KÖR process to seal the nerve channels when it is being applied, so the bleaching agent never gets close to the nerve.

The Cure for Crooked Teeth: In Just 6 Months

Many adults needlessly endure crooked teeth because they are unwilling to wear braces for years. Now there is no reason not to have wonderfully straight teeth – and it takes only 6 months. The Six Month Smiles ® cosmetic braces system uses braces and wires that are colorless and blend in with your teeth. They are applied only to the teeth that show when you smile, so it takes far less time to get a great result -- and the cost is typically 20-30% less than metal braces or plastic aligners.
