Teeth whitening is not for everyone.Boston University The Truth about Teeth Whiteners “Bleach will not work with a stain from major deposits caused because a patient has not brushed their teeth. If we’re not taking care of our teeth, we’re not going to get a very effective whitening from any type of product.” View in Article It is usually for people with healthy, unrestored teeth and gums. Talk to your doctor to find out if teeth whitening is the right option for you.
Your dentist will remove some portion of the enamel from the tooth surface, and then these shells will be cemented in the front of the teeth. Thus veneers will change the color, shape, size, or length of your teeth.
Dr. Koty carefully designs each porcelain veneer and has excellent skill and experience in Cosmetic Restorative. In advanced Cabo dentistry, in almost 90% of the cases, E-Max Porcelain material is used.
Zirconia is used in particular cases, and Resin/Composite Veneers are ideal for non-invasive patients.
In our partner clinic, you have the option to choose the material to restore your teeth with dental crowns. Each material has its benefits, but choosing a dental crown depends on the patient’s medical needs and aesthetic.

|E-max Crown||USA: $2,000
|Zirconia Crown||USA: $2,000

A dental crown works like a regular tooth, and it needs the same dental care as natural teeth. In case your natural teeth start to decay, the crown will get loose and fall.
1. Restores Tooth
If your tooth damage hasn’t affected the root, you can keep your teeth just by removing the infected area and placing a crown over your teeth.
2. Over an Implant
If you have a Dental Implant, you will require a crown to rehabilitate your tooth, which will act as a regular tooth.
If you are not comfortable with your teeth’ height/width, a crown can be placed for Cosmetic purposes.
Inlays and Onlays are an alternative treatment for crowns. Teeth that are not damaged much can be treated with Inlays/Onlays instead of a crown.
Thus it acts as the support system which holds the dental crown or bridge in place, similar to how dental roots have our natural teeth.
A dental implant consists of several parts:
It is estimated that more than 36 million Americans (11% of the total population) do not have any teeth. And for 120 million (36%) people in the United States, at least one tooth is missing.American College of Prosthodontists Facts & Figures “More than 36 million Americans do not have any teeth. Tooth loss happens from decay and gums disease, and as a result of injury, cancer, or simply wear.” View in Article
Dental implants can improve your smile as well as tooth functionality. Your treatment will begin with an evaluation of your mouth. An intraoral scan will be done. If you qualify, your dentist will proceed to the planning and preparations for the surgical phase.
In case you need a bone graft, it will be scheduled before the implants are placed.
These are traditional implants, which are titanium cylinders or screws. It acts as anchors and replaces the roots of your natural teeth. It can be used for the upper or lower jaw, and these implants attach directly to your jaw or gum tissue.
Please note: These implants require enough jaw tissue for support. Patients with jaw atrophy (jaw size reduction) might not qualify for traditional implants without a bone graft.
If you are missing one or a few teeth, you can use single-tooth dental implants. It will help to improve your chewing, talk, and smiling.
Many try to avoid the surgery required for regular implants. Whereas many others lack the bone mass in their jaws to hold them.
For them, a mini dental implant is an option where you can get your lost teeth replaced. These implants are made up of titanium alloys.
They are strong enough to resist normal chewing strength. Mini implants have the same structure like that of regular implants but are a little smaller in size.
Depending on the number of implants used for one jaw, these may be called all-on-4 or all-on-6/8. It is a full set of implants designed to restore your complete upper or lower set of teeth. It acts as a permanent and natural-looking substitute for dentures.
