Professional Teeth Whitening for Self Esteem

A whiter brighter smile could be just what the doctor, or dentist, ordered if you are unhappy with your grin. Sometimes all you need is a professional teeth whitening session in Delray Beach to make those whites pearly again.

According to Dr. George Sanchez, over the counter tooth whitening products do work. However, people have a tendency to use too much of the product too often as gels, pastes, strips and rinses are not as strong as professional whitening products.

Over the Counter Teeth Whitening Products

professional_teeth_whitening_Delray_Beach

Your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach explains that whiteners like strips, polishes, pastes and trays won’t get your teeth as white as professional teeth whitening products will, also those trays aren’t custom made and can leak. If any of the product leaks you will experience sensitivity.

As previously mentioned, over the counter products are used too often. People also use too much product. This will result in sensitive teeth and even chalky teeth. People have also complained of blue teeth because they used too much tooth whitening products.

Professional Tooth Whitening is the Best

Because Dr. George Sanchez and his team monitor professional tooth whitening, you will not have to worry about blue or chalky teeth. As a result, professional whitening is safer.

 You can also opt for custom made take home whitening trays that will lighten your teeth in about two to three weeks.

Does Teeth Whitening Work for Everyone?

People who have their natural teeth are the perfect candidates for teeth whitening. Over the counter and professional teeth whitening products will not work on teeth that are restored or teeth with interior stains.

If your teeth are dull, stained, and yellow with age, call and schedule a professional teeth whitening appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach.

Call and schedule your appointment today.

Don’t Be So Proud of your Old Dental Restorations

If your old dental restorations are still intact but have not been checked lately, you may want to schedule an appointment with your dentist in Delray Beach. Dr. George Sanchez will inspect your restorations using special tools that detect decay in and around existing fillings.

dental_restorations_checkup_Delray_BeachOld Dental Restorations Can Hide Things

Dr. George explains that old dental restorations will contract and expand because of temperature changes and just plain old age. When this happens, fillings crack and leak allowing food debris and bacteria to eat away at the healthy tooth. So essentially yes, you can develop new cavities in a tooth that has previously been filled.

How to Prevent Decay 

Of course, good oral hygiene including twice daily brushing and flossing once a day will keep your teeth and gums healthy. However, your teeth need to be checked out by your Delray Beach dentist at least twice a year. If you have soft enamel or other issues, Dr. George recommends three or four dental checkups each year to prevent additional problems.

Why Checkups Prevent Further Decay

Cavities and gum disease will get worse; there is no doubt about it. According to Dr. George, leaving a decayed tooth and bleeding gums to their own devices will cost you more time and money.

Small cavities are repaired with a simple tooth colored filling. However, dental caries that are not treated will become bigger and deeper. Sadly, untreated cavities and dental caries develop into deep decay requiring more intrusive treatments such as root canal therapy or extraction. 

Schedule a Dental Restorations Checkup

If you have old restorations that haven’t been checked lately, call and schedule an appointment with Dr. George today. A dental checkup makes all the difference in the world and could actually save a tooth. Call and schedule yours today.

Schedule Your Postponed Dental Checkup Today

If you haven’t seen your Delray Beach dentist in some time, it’s time to schedule a dental checkup with Dr. George Sanchez.

dental_checkup_DelrayBeachBecause most people have sheltered in place since March, scheduled dental checkups and restoration tune-ups had to be postponed. If you find yourself in that situation, call and schedule an appointment with Dr. George if you haven’t already heard from his team.

A Dental Checkup for a Healthy Body

If you follow Dr. George’s dental blog, you will remember that there is a connection between overall and oral health. A missed dental checkup could mean advanced gum disease also known as periodontal disease. Research also suggests that people who suffer from oral health problems are more inclined to be diagnosed with heart disease. Some scientists also see a strong connection between stroke, heart attack, and diabetes.

If you have gone for more than 6 months without a dental checkup, it is imperative that you call and schedule one with Dr. George as soon as possible.

Healthier Teeth with Regular Dental Checkups

Healthier teeth begin with regular dental checkups, especially if you have older fillings. Fillings that are more than five years old must be checked for breaks, cracks, chips, and especially leaks.

Over time, old silver amalgam fillings will contract and expand. This means they can develop tooth decay under the filling. Fillings don’t always prevent further decay. You could have numerous cavities in or around an old amalgam filling and not even know it.

Only Dr. George can determine if you have decay under or around old fillings. It is important to note that x-rays will not detect decay under fillings. Your Delray Beach dentist uses special tools to check for decay.

A Dental Checkup for Peace of Mind

A healthy mouth means a healthy body. Call and schedule a dental checkup with Dr. George today.

Cosmetic Dentistry for a Wonderful Life

Dr. George Sanchez is an amazing cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach who is ready to boost your confidence with a beautiful, healthy smile. Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, you will not have to cover your mouth when you smile anymore.

cosmetic_dentistry_Delray_Beach
From porcelain veneers to cosmetic crowns, professional teeth whitening and a smile makeover, you will have more confidence when you join Dr. George and his Delray Beach dental practice.

Cosmetic Dentistry in Delray Beach

A cosmetic dentist improves the look of your smile, but also makes it healthier. If you have chipped or cracked teeth or teeth that are misaligned, having them restored will make them healthier. Furthermore, crooked, broken, and uneven teeth are difficult to brush and floss. This makes you more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

Cosmetic dentistry really is a specialty taking  restorative dentistry one-step further.  

Porcelain Veneers and Cosmetic Dentistry

Porcelain veneers fit over the fronts of your teeth fix a multitude of problems, but it isn’t just chips and cracks that dental veneers repair.

You can fill the space between your teeth and also make your eyeteeth longer with veneers. If you are not happy with the color of your teeth, you can have customized porcelain veneers for your entire smile.

Delray Beach Cosmetic Dental Crowns

Cosmetic dental crowns are like porcelain veneers but require more removal of the natural tooth. Porcelain veneers require a small amount of enamel removal for a good fit. Consequently, crowns are less conservative as the crown goes over the entire tooth. Veneers fit on the fronts of the teeth. Just like dental veneers Dr. George uses crowns to change the appearance. 

If you would like to learn more about cosmetic or restorative dentistry, call and schedule a no obligation cosmetic dentistry consultation. Dr. George will help you smile again. Call today.

Mail Order Braces Aren’t Your Best Fit

Mail order braces ads are all over the internet, in magazines and your social media feeds. Sadly, some people are not suitable for online braces. That means you could actually damage your smile.

Invisalign_dentist_Delray_BeachWhat are Mail Order Braces?

Mail order braces are clear plastic aligners that are designed to gradually push teeth into the desired position. Unfortunately, you will never visit a dentist if you order braces online.

Pictures that you take are sent to the manufacturer. While some companies claim that a dentist looks over the pictures, you can never be too sure and that’s where your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach comes in.

A Patented and Preferred Tooth Straightening System

A patented tooth straightening system, Invisalign® uses 11 to 31 sets of clear plastic aligners. Unlike online braces, Invisalign® requires a preferred and licensed dentist to administer.

Not all patients are suitable for clear braces. People who have severe under or overbites, or people with seriously tipped teeth may fare better with conventional wires and brackets. Anyone can order braces online and that is where the problems arise.

How Invisalign® Works

Your dentist in Delray Beach takes pictures and creates a blueprint for your Invisalign® prescription. Dr. George Sanchez will then order your new aligners. When your aligners arrive, you will wear them for 22 hours every day removing when you eat, drink, brush, and floss. Because they are removable, you will not have to worry about the problems that come with old school braces.

While some patients see results in as little as six months, most have a straighter smile in 12 to 18 months.

If you have been considering mail order braces, call and talk to Dr. George first. After all, you only have one smile, make sure you keep it healthy.

Skip the mail order braces and call for a no obligation Invisalign® consultation today.

Porcelain Veneers Dental Crowns the Difference

Both porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns will give you a beautiful smile. Cosmetic dental crowns and dental veneers can fix a multitude of problems including badly chipped and cracked teeth and teeth that can’t be whitened with traditional methods.

porcelain_veneers_Delray_BeachIt’s important to note that porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental crowns can also make your teeth longer or shorter. 

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are custom made to fit over the fronts of your teeth. Used for both upper and lower teeth, cosmetic dentist Dr. George Sanchez recommends 8 on the bottom and 10 on the top if you are having your entire smile transformed with veneers.

What is the Porcelain Veneer Process?

If you and Dr. George agree that porcelain veneers are a good fit, your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach will take pictures and x-rays to send to the lab for manufacture.

Dr. George will then remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth or teeth to make way for your new porcelain veneer. This process is entirely safe, but keep in mind that porcelain veneers are permanent.

After the tooth or teeth are prepared, your Delray Beach dentist and his team will place temporary veneers until your new restorations are ready.

When your veneers are ready, Dr. George will check for fit and color before cementing and polishing to expose the beauty of the porcelain dental restoration.

What are Cosmetic Dental Crowns?

Your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist uses dental crowns to cover root canals, fill large cavities, and for dental implants and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. 

Made from dental grade porcelain or other non-metal materials, cosmetic dental crowns fit over the entire tooth. This means Dr. George will remove more enamel than he would with porcelain veneers. 


The Dental Crown Process

Again, you and Dr. George must decide if crowns will work. If you both agree, x-rays and digital images are next on the agenda. Dr. George will remove enamel from your tooth or teeth to make way for your new cosmetic dental crown. 

You can expect new crowns in about two weeks. During that time you’ll wear temporary dental crowns. When they are ready Dr. George will check for color and fit before placement. 

If you would like to learn, more about porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns call and schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach today.

Dental Problems will Only Get Worse

dental_problems_Delray_BeachIgnoring a toothache or other dental problems isn’t a good idea. In fact, if you ignore bleeding gums or a cracked tooth you will be up for more than a simple filling or professional cleaning.

According to your dentist in Delray Beach, dental problems will not get better by themselves. Small cavities get larger and gum disease gets worse.

Below are four dental problems that will happen if you don’t go to the dentist for regular dental checkups.

1. Tooth Decay and Cavities are Bad Dental Problems

While brushing twice and flossing once a day helps keep dental plaque under control you will need professional cleanings a couple of times a year.

Plaque, that sticky film that forms on your teeth, will convert to tartar that can only be removed by your Delray Beach dentist. Leaving tooth decay to its own devices will allow bacteria to take over creating tooth decay that is so bad that it requires extensive treatments such as a dental crown or root canal therapy.

2. Dental Problems and Gum Disease

If your gums are swollen, tender and bleed when you brush, floss or eat schedule an appointment with Dr. George Sanchez.

According to Dr. George, gingivitis, the mildest form of gum disease, can be cured if treated quickly. If gum disease is not treated, it will eventually lead to periodontitis. Periodontal disease can be controlled, but not cured. Periodontitis is also the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

3. Overall Health Problems and Oral Health

During dental checkups, Dr. George will thoroughly examine your mouth looking for any signs that could indicate overall health problems and of course dental problems.

Finding these issues early, helps prevent more serious problems, such as oral cancer, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease.

4. Stained Teeth are Just the Beginning

Drinking wine, tea and coffee and enjoying foods like spaghetti and curry sauce will stain your teeth. While good oral hygiene habits will keep tooth staining to a minimum, regular professional dental cleanings will remove stains. Professional tooth whitening is also recommended for badly stained teeth.

If you would like more information regarding oral health or dental problems, call and talk to your Delray Dentist today.

Your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach has seen a few patients who have gone overboard with at home tooth whitening overusing those pastes, gels, trays, and strips. Unfortunately, you will not see the same results with over the counter whitening products. Because they are not as strong as professional teeth whitening products people tend to use too much product all too often.
