I have been coming to Bay View for a number of years and sad when Dr Emerson retired. He encouraged my family to stay with office, the staff would remain and have 2 female dentists come in. I had to change my dental plan to stay on and I’m glad I did ! Everyone is friendly, professional and like family. Thank you Bay View

Featured Procedures

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a cap that covers a damaged or decayed tooth. Dentists can also use crowns along with dental implants to replace teeth. At our Clairemont office, we can produce precisely crafted crowns and other restorations in a single office visit using advanced CEREC technology.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium rods that act as prosthetic tooth roots. Once implants are placed in the jawbone, they provide outstanding support for crowns, bridges, or dentures. For most patients with missing teeth, dental implants are the best restoration option available in modern dentistry.

Explore Dental Implants


Having crooked teeth may make you feel self-conscious. While traditional orthodontics like metal braces are effective at straightening teeth, they aren't subtle and can be uncomfortable. Our dentists are providers of the Invisalign system, which uses clear, removable aligners to discreetly and comfortably straighten teeth.

If you have cosmetic issues like chipped, cracked, or stained teeth, veneers may be right for you. Veneers are ultra-thin ceramic shells that our dentists can attach to the front of teeth to conceal imperfections. They are made from durable, natural-looking materials that can be color-matched to the surrounding teeth.

Advanced Technology for Same-Day Crowns Save Our Patients Time & Hassle

Our San Diego practice features the revolutionary in-office CEREC system which allows Dr. Shelton and Dr. March to provide patients with durable dental crowns in just a single appointment at our Clairemont office.

After treating a weakened tooth, your dentist will take a detailed digital impression of your smile, allowing you to skip the mess of traditional impressions. With these digital impressions, they can design a dental crown that will blend seamlessly with your smile. It will be fabricated from a porcelain ceramic blank that has been selected to color-match your surrounding teeth.

Your new crown will be ready in about 20 minutes. Once your permanent custom crown has been completed, your dentist will make any adjustments to ensure you are both happy with the fit, form, and function. They will then permanently affix your new crown to your treated tooth. You will leave your appointment free of discomfort with a newly restored smile you can be proud to share with the world.

Why Should I See a Dentist?

We understand that taking the time to visit the dentist can be inconvenient and, for many people, a cause of anxiety. However, basic at-home care is simply not enough to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.

Regular appointments at our dental practice in San Diego, CA, have many benefits, including:

  • Thorough cleanings that eliminate plaque and bacteria that brushing and flossing can't alone
  • Early detection of serious conditions like gum disease or tooth infections
  • Preventive treatments that make the development of oral health issues less likely
  • Cosmetic benefits like whiter teeth and healthier-looking gums
