About Us

Welcome to Mountain Crest Dental!

Here at Mountain Crest Dental, you will find an experienced team of dental professionals ready to provide you with the highest quality of care for your oral health needs. If it has been a while since your last check-up or you are simply looking for a new home for dental care, you are probably wondering, "Is there a dentist near me who can provide excellent service at an affordable price?" Fortunately, you have found the answer here at Mountain Crest Dental. Our highest priority is your satisfaction and comfort for everything from cosmetic teeth whitening to root canal therapy.

Here at Mountain Crest Dental, we focus on the connection between dental care and your body's overall health.  We are dedicated to the idea that your oral health directly affects your overall health, so even a minor toothache or simple tooth filling requires serious attention and individualized care. Dr. Jason Thibodeaux will work with you to develop an effective regimen for dental hygiene, preventative maintenance, and regularly scheduled exams. In order to provide the best possible service, our entire dental team pursues continuing education and professional training in the latest diagnostic techniques, treatment, and technology.  In addition to caring for the physical integrity of your teeth and restorative structures such as fillings and crowns, we also monitor any changes that could indicate diseases or disorders that might require the specialized service of an orthodontist, endodontist, periodontist or prosthodontist.

Take the first step towards enjoying the beautiful smile you deserve by calling us at 480-718-9443 to schedule an appointment today!

Comfort Dentistry

It is quite normal to feel anxious about visiting the dentist, but you can relax as the gentle dental professionals here at Mountain Crest Dental assess your particular needs and take the time to discuss your best dental care options. You can count on our experience and expertise to provide care that is as pain-free as possible even if you have particularly sensitive teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry

At Mountain Crest Dental, we want your smile to look as good as it feels. Our dental team can help you smile with pride by effectively treating problems that range from discoloration to misalignment.

Professional Teeth Whitening with Opalescence Boost

Even the most carefully treated white teeth can fade over time or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or aging. We offer a variety of options for improving your teeth's appearance and we will work with you to determine the best teeth whitening treatment for your personal needs and lifestyle.

The Opalescence Boost system utilizes a powerful teeth-whitening gel to brighten your smile by several shades in a short amount of time. We also offer the option of using custom Take Home Trays for your whitening treatments. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home with a teeth-whitening kit.

Invisalign and Invisalign Teen 

Mountain Crest Dental is proud to be your Invisalign provider in Mesa, Arizona. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces for correcting dental misalignment or spacing problems.  Your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports.  Working adults are able to maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious. Invisalign Teen is specially designed to complement your adolescent patient's lifestyle, which also encourages their enthusiastic participation in a way that traditional metal braces simply can't match.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, then porcelain veneers may be right for you. Veneers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are permanently bonded to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come. Dental veneers can also provide relief from the tooth pain associated with worn enamel.

Restorative Dentistry

Are you experiencing a toothache? Have you chipped or broken a tooth? Do you need a professional dental examination to find the cause of your pain? At Mountain Crest Dental we offer a variety of restorative procedures from a same-day crown to root canal therapy. These services do more than just improve the appearance of your smile. Our goal is to provide pain relief, restore function, and ensure future oral health.

Crowns

At Mountain Crest Dental, we apply a custom, natural-looking crown (or "cap") in cases where decay or trauma has done too much damage to completely restore the original tooth. Crowns are an excellent alternative to extraction that offer long-term durability, protection from decay or cracking, and an improved, natural appearance. We can even create and place your crown in just one day.

A crown may be right for you if...

  • you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could require tooth removal and cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
  • you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
  • you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
  • you have a tooth that is severely discolored.

Implant Supported Dentures 

If you are looking for affordable dentures in the Mesa, Arizona area, you can find them here at Mountain Crest Dental.  Our implant-retained dentures are custom crafted to look natural and provide greater stability that allows you to enjoy proper oral function. Our dental team will help you determine if a partial or full denture will best suit your individual needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Oral Surgery

If you need a surgical tooth extraction or wisdom teeth removal, we can save you the time and money of making an extra trip to see an oral surgeon. These procedures require only local anesthesia and can be performed here at our dental clinic.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have symptoms like pain or a clicking sound, you will be happy to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Early detection and treatment are important because some types of TMJ problems can lead to a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or even more serious conditions.

Emergency Dental Care in Mesa, Arizona

A severe tooth cavity, physical trauma, and other oral health problems can be incredibly uncomfortable, and we are here to treat dental issues that just can't wait for your regular check-up. Whether you're suffering from a painful cavity, cracked tooth, or a loose filling, please don't hesitate to give Mountain Crest Dental a call! Research shows periodontal problems can potentially elevate the risk for other health issues, including diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Your health and comfort are our first priority. If you are in the Mesa, Arizona area and experiencing serious oral pain, call us directly at 480-718-9443 and one of our team members will schedule a consultation with you during our regular business hours.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Here at Mountain Crest Dental, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, at Mountain Crest Dental we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution dental images and x-rays that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, periodontal disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.

We are able to reduce the duration of your dental visit to Mountain Crest Dental by using the iTero Element digital scanner to quickly obtain an extremely high-quality image of your entire dental structure. You are able to see not only the current condition of your teeth, but also a before-and-after-simulation of your ideal smile -- and this is all done without the discomfort of using dental trays and impression goo to produce a physical model. The iTero Element scanner is non-invasive, convenient, and comfortable for dental imaging while allowing our dentist to deliver a higher level of care to our patients in Mesa.
