I am excited to be a part of Dr. Esteso’s patient-centered team. My passion for dentistry grew before becoming a dental hygienist when I started working at a dental office as an assistant and doing front office work. I decided I wanted to earn my Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene from Texas Woman’s University and graduated with the highest honors of Summa Cum Laude. I love learning and attending continuing education course so I can stay up to date with the highest level of technology. My goal as a dental hygienist is to provide patients with the highest level of personalized care in a comfortable environment. I am also committed to establishing trusting relationships with my patients.

I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and moved to Texas in 2008. The thing I love most about Texas is the warm and friendly people. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling with my husband, reading, and volunteering at my church.

Oral Exams

During your scheduled dental visit, we will perform a thorough exam that evaluates all the tissues of the mouth, including the soft tissues (palate, gums, cheeks, tongue and lips among others) for any sign of diseases that may reflect in the mouth even though they may be originating in other areas of the body. We also evaluate for abnormalities that may indicate the presence of diseases that includes oral cancer. We will thoroughly evaluate the condition of your gums to ensure you do not have periodontal disease, and if found we will treat and recommend at home care designed to restore you to health. We will complete your exam with a thorough evaluation of your teeth, your bite and your jaw articulation. During your appointment we encourage you to ask any questions or concerns you may have and will help you understand the best practices to keep your oral condition in optimal health.

General Services

Dental cavities start very small. When discovered on time, we can recommend rinses and products that can reverse the condition before the destruction is irreversible without the need for more invasive procedures. If the carious process has started to break down the tooth, a white color filling can be used to repair the damage to the tooth. If the destruction is very large and compromises the integrity and function of the tooth, a crown is used to restore its function and beauty. Unfortunately, in some instances the damage is so severe that the nerve inside the tooth has been invaded, causing excruciating pain in which case a root canal needs to be performed to remove the infection affecting the tooth. In some instances, a tooth may not be saved, resulting in the extraction and replacement with either an implant, a bridge or a denture..

  • Fillings
  • A filling is a way to restore back to health, function and esthetics, a tooth damaged by decay or that has a failing restoration. Dr. Esteso will start by removing the tooth structure damaged by bacteria and any filling material previously placed, followed by thoroughly disinfecting the healthy tooth surface. The next step is to replace the part of the tooth lost to the cavity with a tooth color resin that is fast hardened using blue visible light. The final step consists of ensuring the bite is adequate and the filling feels smooth. The new filling seals the tooth to prevent bacteria from reentering the tooth thus preventing further damage for years to come. Fillings need to be replaced as part of normal maintenance when the restoration has reached the end of its useful life. We do not place amalgam fillings due to the controversy that exists around the use of mercury.

  • Crowns
  • A crown, also known as cap, is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth that has lost a large part of its structure due to a cavity, a fracture, that has received a root canal or lost a major portion of its surface to excessive grinding. A crown, is like a helmet that holds the remaining tooth structure together and transmit the forces exerted during mastication to the roots of the tooth in the same manner a healthy tooth does. If a filling were to be placed when a tooth has been seriously weakened due to structural loss, the tooth will be susceptible to fracture and the possibility of rendering the tooth non repairable, in which case the remaining fragment must be extracted. In some cases, crowns can also serve to improve esthetics.

    Dr. Esteso will prepare the tooth by reducing the tooth surface enough for the covering crown to have the size and strength that will better serve the affected tooth. A mold of the prepared tooth is taken with highly accurate impression material. This mold is then send to one of the best and most recognized laboratories in the United States for fabrication of a Zirconia crown or all porcelain crown. We do not use metal crowns due to the possibility of metal allergies in some patients as well as Dr. Esteso’ s focus on achieving the most aesthetic results. The appointment concludes with the placement of a temporary crown to be replaced with the permanent when it returns from the laboratory, and selection of a shade that best matches the patient’s expectations. On your follow up visit, Dr. Esteso removes the temporary crown and fits the new crown ensuring that comfort, function and esthetics are optimally achieved.

  • Bridges
  • A bridge, also known as a fixed appliance, is made to replace one or more missing teeth that are surrounded by strong teeth on either side. Bridges can be supported by natural teeth, by implants, or on rare cases by a combination of both. A traditional bridge has crowns on either side and one or more teeth in between to fill the empty space. The adjacent teeth are prepared following the same procedure as explained for a crown (please see crown).

  • Veneers
  • A veneer is a layer of porcelain placed over a tooth either to improve the aesthetics of the smile or to protect the tooth's natural surface from damage. A veneer can close gaps between the teeth, align the smile when minor rotations in the teeth would otherwise require orthodontic treatment (braces), the teeth are discolored, or the size and or shape are of unusual proportions. Dr. Esteso will make an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for veneers. If eligible, he will do a recommendation and work with you to understand your expectations in order to achieve the most aesthetic result. The veneer procedure is usually divided into two different office visits. During the first visit, Dr. Esteso removes a small portion of the enamel (tooth surface coating) in order for the final product to have all the characteristic of a well proportionate tooth. An impression or mold of the teeth will be taken with highly accurate material to send to the laboratory. The laboratory will fabricate the veneers from the finest porcelain. You will leave the office wearing temporaries until the laboratory finishes fabricating the final veneers (more or less 2 weeks). When you return, the temporaries will be removed and the permanent veneers will be attached permanently to your teeth both mechanically and chemically. Your new veneers will not stain or decolor like bonding would, and will last a lot longer.

  • Implants
  • An implant is a titanium tooth root that is placed in the bone to replace a tooth lost or missing. Dr. Esteso will examine you to evaluate if you are a candidate to receive an implant. This includes a thorough oral exam, a CT scan of your jaws and an evaluation of your health to determine the best approach to restoring one or more missing teeth. When the exam is completed and you have been cleared to receive the implant, Dr. Esteso will select the best implant for the case, will numb the area and proceed to place the implant. In some instances, the final tooth restoration can be placed the same day. In other cases, it is recommended that the implant is allowed to strengthen before the final tooth is placed. Implants can be used to replace one or more teeth, support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, a facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. After the implant is ready to receive the normal forces exerted on the teeth, a tooth is attached to the implant and a crown placed to complete the restoration.

  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Root Canal Therapy is the process of removing the nerve inside a tooth that has been contaminated with bacteria and the infection is or will be causing extreme pain and further destruction of the tooth. Removal of the infection results in saving a tooth that otherwise would need to be extracted. There are many reasons why a patient may need a root canal, the most common reason is that the tooth has an abscess or a cavity that extends into the nerve chamber. Endodontic therapy involves the removal of the infected structures, the subsequent shaping, cleaning, and decontamination of the hollow canals inside the tooth using small files and irrigating solutions, and the obscuration of the decontaminated canals with an inert filling such as gutta-percha. It is recommended after a root canal the placement of a crown to prevent the possibility of fracture of the weakened more brittle tooth.

  • Scaling and Root Planning
  • Scaling and Root Planning is a procedure intended to decontaminate the structures that surround the tooth as well as remove plaque and calculus. Plaque is a sticky substance secreted by bacteria that attaches to the surfaces of the tooth. It hardens over time to a concrete like consistency (aka calculus). Removal of this substance and the bacteria that nests in it requires the utilization of instruments and techniques that will adequately and completely remove it. This procedure is extremely important to avoid unrecoverable bone loss and its consequences that could be severe enough to result in tooth loss. The determination of the need for this procedure is based on a thorough periodontal exam that includes x-rays, measurement of the space between the gum and the teeth and evaluation of the gums for signs that are prevalent in periodontal disease, and a diagnosis of periodontitis. If the condition is less severe and no bone loss has occurred, it is called gingivitis and it can be easily reversed with a professional.

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Whitening is a dental procedure that can be achieved by different methods depending on the patient’s needs. The fastest method is by having an in-office whitening procedure that usually takes about an hour and a half. The results are seen after the procedure is done but the teeth continue to brighten for several days. Another method is by fabricating trays that you take home with you. Using these for 30 minutes a day with the solution provided by our office, will achieve your preferred shade in as little as two weeks. Some individuals may experience sensitivity with any of the two whitening methods, therefore in our office we provide you with medication and aids to avoid and minimize any discomfort.

  • Extractions
  • There are some times when teeth cannot be saved and the tooth must be extracted to prevent pain and further damage to surrounding areas. Now a days, we have the technology and tools to make a tooth extraction, a none painful event. The area is anesthetized to ensure there is no pain during or after the procedure. If you are anxious about this procedure, Nitrous oxide can be used to reduce the anxiety the patient may be experiencing. The tooth is then gently moved from side to side to allow the surrounding tissues to expand allowing for a smooth removal of the damaged tooth. Most patients can choose from a variety of options to replace the lost tooth if so desired. This will ensure maintaining a stable oral environment preventing teeth from shifting into the space left behind after the extraction. These include implants, bridges or temporary removable appliances as well as doing nothing. Doctor Esteso will explain your options and the benefits and consequences of each one of them.

  • Dentures
  • When teeth are lost, dentures provide a low cost alternative to regaining function, health and esthetics. There are many different types of dentures and to know what the best options are for your case, Dr. Esteso will thoroughly explain each one of them and with you, decide which one is best for you.
