Improving Your Smile, The Basics

Latest update from Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is becoming more and more popular today.  There are so many fixes to a smile that can be made, whether it be whitening, straightening, closing gaps, or even replacing teeth.  Now there are various procedures that can take place in order to fix these problems.  It is important to understand the problem you see with your teeth and make sure you elect for the right operation in order to fix it.  Lets take a look at some of the options you have to correct your smile.

First is your basic teeth whitening.  Don’t you just hate that light stain look drinking coffee can leave?  Teeth whitening can fix that.  Teeth whitening is designed to help teeth that have become stained or discolored over time.  The great part about teeth whitening is that while it can be done at the dentists office, the dentist can also provide you with a system to use at home.  While whitening at home can take a couple of weeks to see results, if you have the whitening done in the dentists office, you can have results in hours.

Next we will take a look at bonding.  Bonding typically fixes gaps between teeth as well as chipped, broken, stained or cracked teeth.  Bonding can fix your teeth for many years down the road but it is also known to wear down eventually.  Materials used for bonding can also be used to fill small cavities.

Finally, lets take a look at veneers.  Veneers are made to cover the front side of teeth, often changing the color and shape of the tooth.  They are made out of porcelain but sometimes can be plastic as well.  If you are very worried about your teeth, you should go with veneers as opposed to bonding because veneers will last longer and give off a better look.  Veneers can fix everything bonding can all the while be less expensive than crowns.  Its a great alternative.

How much does a single dental implant NYC cost?


Very expensive.

Originally posted on Dental Implants New York City $ 999:

Gráfico dientesA dental implant NYC cost can vary by as much as a few thousand dollars. In NYC the price can be quoted from $3500 up to as much as $5500 or more for a single tooth implant.  

The procedure involves 2 steps – The first step is the placement of the implant then, after a healing period, which can be 3 – 6 months, comes the second step – the restoration, which is building the crown on top of the implant. So why is there such a great difference in the price?

The dental implant cost is determined by:

The dental implant type/ manufacturer and the crown on top of it
Patient’s physical condition which means age, oral hygiene, jaw bone anatomy – these factors may determine if additional treatments are needed or not.

X-rays or CTs which are more modern, more precise and of course – more expensive.

As many of you know, we periodically release new features and updates to the software that powers sites. We’re excited to share the freshest crop of improvements with you today, and hope they’ll make great content even easier to create.
