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.

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.

Delray Beach Professional Teeth Whitening with Kör

Although you may be tempted to whiten your teeth at home, resist the temptation. Consequently, over the counter products can do more harm than good. Not only can they make your smile hurt, but also turn it blue.

Avoid Over the Counter Products

professional_teeth_whitening_DelrayBeach

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.

According to Dr. George Sanchez over the counter whiteners can cause sensitivity. Patients who use too much have also had to deal with chalky or bluish looking teeth. Dr. Sanchez monitors your progress so that you won’t be tempted to overdo it.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Delray Beach

Your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist is a preferred provider of the Kör Professional Teeth Whitening System supplying you with custom-made whitening take home kits. Unlike other types of whitening systems, Kör can even remove interior stains caused from too much fluoride or tetracycline use.

How Does Kör Work?

According to your dentist in Delray Beach, Kör gel is a remarkable product that absorbs deeply into your teeth dissolving and removing even the toughest stains. Kör provides patients with lasting results and is easily maintained with Kör whitening touch up kits. As a result your smile will always be white and bright.

Does Kör Hurt?

Kör is the gentlest system available without discomfort. Unlike some in office whitening systems, Kör causes very little sensitivity, if any at all.

Will My Teeth Look Fake with Kör?

Natural teeth will never look fake. Kör will only whiten your teeth as light as they can go. While everyone’s teeth are different, Kör provides the best results with some patients glowing with teeth that are 16 shades lighter.

Is Kör Professional Teeth Whitening for Everyone?

Keep in mind that Kör wont’ work for everyone. For example, if you have teeth that are restored or a mouth full of dental implants, professional teeth whitening will not work.

If you would like more information regarding Kör professional tooth whitening, call and schedule an appointment with Dr. George Sanchez today.

smile_makeover_Delray_Beach

A Smile Makeover Turns a Frown Upside Down

A smile makeover takes restoration dentistry one-step further using cosmetic dentistry procedures that enhance your smile.

What is a Smile Makeover?

smile_makeover_dentist_Delray_BeachRestoration dentistry means repairing teeth so that they are healthy and functional. Cosmetic dentistry means cosmetic dental crowns, dental implants, cosmetic dental bonding, porcelain veneers, professional tooth whitening, inlays, onlays, and clear braces. In other words, a general dentist will restore your smile while a cosmetic dentist will enhance it with advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures.

A Smile Makeover and Cosmetic Dentistry

In most cases, your smile makeover will be both restorative and cosmetic because some procedures cross over. For example, dental implants are both restorative, as they help rebuild bone, and cosmetic as they provide you with a natural looking artificial tooth.

Dr. George Sanchez practices mercury free dentistry providing you with tooth colored fillings and crowns. Because of his tooth colored solutions, his restorations are also cosmetic.

Types of Cosmetic Dentistry in Delray Beach

Your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist provides cosmetic dental services that include:

Professional Tooth Whitening for a Smile Makeover

Done in office or with custom made whitening trays, professional tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world and is usually performed before other procedures for an accurate color match.

Cosmetic Dental Crowns

Cosmetic dental crowns cover the whole tooth like a cap. Fitting over the whole tooth, cosmetic crowns match the rest of your smile and can be completed in a single dental visit. Cosmetic crowns go hand in hand with a smile makeover.

A Smile Makeover and Inlays/Onlays

These are custom-made tooth colored restorations that are laid in or on the tooth depending on the damage. The inlays and onlays are made to match the damaged tooth perfectly.

Clear Braces

Your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach uses the clear plastic aligner system for a smile makeover to gradually move teeth into place. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign® works in 12 to 18 months. Conventional wires and brackets can take up to 2 years.

Dental Implants

The strongest replacement for missing teeth, dental implants can last the rest of your life as long as you practice good oral hygiene. Dental implants are as strong, if not stronger than your own teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers repair cracked, chipped, and stained teeth. However, veneers fit over the tops of the teeth where the crowns fit over the entire tooth.

If you would like more information regarding a smile makeover in Delray Beach, call and schedule a no obligation consultation with Dr. Sanchez today.

amalgam_free_dentistry

Silver Amalgam Fillings a Ticking Time Bomb?

While the American Dental Association and some dentists still see silver amalgam as a safe material for dental fillings, your Delray Beach dentist disagrees.

Dr. George Sanchez practices mercury-free and mercury-safe dentistry so that your risks are minimal when it comes to silver amalgam fillings.

Why are Silver Amalgam Fillings Dangerous?

Amalgam fillings contain mercury. Nearly 50 percent of amalgam is made up of mercury with silver, tin and nickel.

amalgam_free_dentistry

Because metals contract with heat, your fillings are contracting and expanding every time you eat something hot or cold.

Over time, your old silver amalgam fillings will not have a tight seal. This allows food particles, debris, and bacteria to move in and around the fillings. What most people don’t realize is that filled teeth can still get cavities.

On top of old decay, dental amalgam is potentially toxic because it contains mercury. Mercury has long been known to cause problems as it is classified as a toxic substance. Dentists from the mid to late 20th century had no idea that silver amalgam would have long-term physical effects.

Why is Mercury Dangerous?

While mercury thermometers are rarely used today, mercury is still used in silver amalgam fillings. One of the biggest issues with mercury is that its vapor is toxic. If those vapors are absorbed into your lungs and tissues, you could suffer from muscle aches, depression, and anxiety.

Because mercury is cumulative, it builds up in your system. The more mercury that is released when you chew the more build up you will have in your cells. So bad is mercury for humans, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden have restricted its use or banned it altogether.

If you would like to learn more about dental fillings that are safe for you and your family, call and schedule an appointment with your Delray Beach Dentist.

Dr. George believes in treating the whole body, not just the teeth and gums. Call for a dental consultation with Dr. George in Delray Beach today.

dental_bonding_Delray_Beach

Dental Bonding if You’re Not Ready to Commit

Porcelain veneers are not as expensive as you may think, and thanks to modern dental technology, dental veneers can last a decade or more as long as you practice good oral hygiene. However, porcelain veneers are permanent as are cosmetic dental crowns.

If you are unsure, you want to make a permanent commitment to cosmetic crowns or porcelain veneers, talk to Dr. George Sanchez. about dental bonding. Your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist will evaluate your situation offering you the best advice for your new smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding Permanent, But Not Forever

dental_bonding_Delray_Beach

If you haven’t wanted to commit to porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns, but would like your chips and cracks repaired, talk to your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach. Dr. Sanchez is an artist when it comes to fixing teeth that are chipped, cracked or badly stained.

Bonding is used to fix teeth that are chipped and cracked, but is also used by your Delray Beach dentist to change the shape of teeth. If you have teeth that are too short or too long, Dr. Sanchez uses a technique known as enamel shaping along with cosmetic dental bonding. This completely changes the shape and size of your tooth or teeth without resorting to porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns.

What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

If you follow Dr. George’s Blog, you will remember that cosmetic dental bonding is a process that takes place in a single dental appointment. Dental bonding uses a dental resin that is matched to the rest of the tooth. Dr. George will use a conditioning liquid to roughen up the tooth before applying the dental resin. After the dental resin is sculpted into shape, it is cured with a laser or light before being polished to mimic the rest of your smile.

A Beautiful Smile without the Commitment

If you aren’t ready to commit to porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns just yet, schedule a no obligation cosmetic dental consultation with Dr. George. You won’t believe what he can do for your smile. Call for a dental bonding consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach today.
