Yes you could have a claim for false advertising under California consumer protection lawsuits. My only concern here is what are your damages. A separate and stronger claim may be malpractice if the implants were done incorrectly. Local dentists probably would not testify against one another. If you were to hire a medical malpractice attorney to file the lawsuit he or she would try to identify and hire an out of state or other city dentist to testify about the poor work performed.
