Welcome to the best Cosmetic Dentistry in Cancun

What are teeth made of?

Maybe you would have thought that teeth are some sort of bone, but the truth is way more interesting. Teeth are way stronger than any other human bones, which might be the reason why archeologist find more teeth than any other part of the body in ancient excavations. Healthy teeth can be just that durable!

Each part of the tooth is made of different substances. For example, the outer layer is called Enamel, the hardest of all layers and is composed mostly of a white and rock-hard mineral called calcium phosphate. The enamel is supposed to withstand the pressure of chewing for your entire life, but this doesn’t mean it is impervious. The enamel can be cracked by blunt trauma or can be breakdown by the bacteria’s acid from eating food debris on the tooth surface (caries and cavities!). The enamel cannot regenerate itself like bones, so it requires the intervention of a dentist.

The second layer of the tooth is the dentin. The dentin is made out of a combination of living cells that secrete a hard mineral substance. The dentin is not as hard as the enamel and even the color can go from cream to light yellow. Is very important that you get in immediate contact with your dentist if you start to notice a marked difference in color on your teeth, specially on molars and premolars (white edges with a yellow softer center). There are ways for the dentine to partially regenerate itself, but you need to address bacterial infections and other protection first with the help of a dentist.

The inner most layer of the tooth is called the pulp, which consist of nerves and blood vessels that connect to the jaw bone. This is the most delicate of all part of the tooth. If anything starts reaching the pulp, the pain will let you know.

Here at our dental clinic in Cancun, we usually specialize on advanced implant and denture treatments, but we can also handle general dentistry procedures without a problem. Give us a call for more information about affordable fillings, cleanings and whitening. You could make your appointment during your vacation in Cancun or Riviera Maya.  Call toll free from USA & Canada 1-800-565-1424.

Cheap Porcelain Crowns Makeover Dental Work in Cancun

 

Today we would like to thank our dear patient Morris for his preference. He’s a returning patient from a while back and he keeps coming to us for his affordable dental work.  He first heard of us from  from someone he met at his hotel while he was having a vacation in Cancun. He was at first surprised about someone getting dental work during their vacations but it was not long when realized this was a great opportunity for him and his smile.

 

He got some amazing dental crowns for much less than in USA. He told us that was one of his main reasons to have his dental work in Cancun; it was less expensive and after looking at our services he learned we had a good reputation. We have over a hundred testimonial videos at our YouTube channel backing up our work and service.  While he didn’t have much trouble with dentists back in USA, he knows a good deal when he sees it!

 

Morris thinks Cancun is great and we agree. There are many things to do in Cancun, like fishing trips, jungle and adventure tours, diving, snorkeling, golfing, sun tanning or simply relax at your hotel with a margarita. There are plenty of hotels options depending on your budget, from quaint affordable beach hotels in Cancun, to luxury all inclusive resorts in Cancun and Riviera Maya. You should definitely come for your next vacation when you have the chance!

Cheap Mini Implant Dentures in Cancun

 

We had a very special visit from our dear patient Harrie from Philadelphia! He returned to Cancun for vacation and to get his second affordable Snap in Dentures. When he first came here, Harrie had looked over the internet for a good option and he was satisfied with what he found out about our dentists in Cancun. After all, we have great amount of video testimonials at our YouTube channel and, obviously, our twice a week Happy Patient post like this one!

 

Harrie had very bad experiences with other dentists before he came to Cancun. This is a widespread problem for many patients who feel they can’t trust any other dentist after some disastrous experience with them. Perhaps they were too rough, their job was bad or they came as rude and uncaring. This last point is quite normal because usually dentists don’t have training on how to deal with patients. Some would argue their job is to work with teeth, not people. It is very difficult to find a group of dentists that care about their patients and take the time to talk to them to understand the patient’s situation and explain every detail of their treatment. That is where we excel. We always get praise from our patients and most of them leave wonderful message for us like Harrie did:

 

The staff is incredible friendly and professional. It’s a pleasure to have treatment done here even if previous experiences were negative (with other doctors). As always many thanks to all staff and Doctor German Arzate.

 

Harrie, it’s an honor for us that you hold us in such a high regard. We hope to see you next year for your check up when you vacation in Cancun.

Dentists in Cancun Doctor German Arzate
Today we gathered some of the most usual questions from our patients and want to share them with you. This will likely help you make a decision to get the affordable services of our dentists in Cancun.

 
I want to change the shape of my teeth, what options do I have?

This is a very easy question to answer. If you only want to change some small detail of the way your teeth look (perhaps there’s a small chip or imperfection) then you could definitely get veneers. If there is a bigger problem with the way your teeth look then the best could be to get full dental crowns. You should know that crowns and veneers require the best oral hygiene possible, so you should use toothbrush, floss, oral irrigator and even mouthwash to ensure your crowns will last for a long long time. You can find cheap crowns with the same materials and quality here than in USA.

 

Will my jaw shrink when I lose all my teeth?

Yes, this is a definite fact. Without  the chewing stimulation when eating from the root of the teeth, the bone will be affected by accelerated bone resorption. This means it will start loosing mass with time and you could end up with a very fragile jaw bone. The speed at which this happens varies depending on sex, age, health and other hereditary genetic factors.

 

What are the benefits of dental implants rather than using dentures?

There are many benefits to use dental implants instead of dentures. First, the dental implant will stimulate the bone like the natural root of the tooth so that means you will stave off losing bone. Dentures can’t help with this problem and in fact sometimes they seem to exacerbate bone loss. For this reason you will have to regularly reline the interior of your dentures to keep fitting with the new form of your gums.

A dental planner will be happy to assist you.

Low Cost of Smile Makeover in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry

 

Today we will talk about our dear patient Shady, who came to our dental clinic in Cancun to get affordable dental crowns! Ceramic crowns are perhaps some of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments people come to us for during their vacation in Cancun. He came from Canada after getting a referral about us, looking for crowns at a better cost. He was simply shocked that the same crowns would have costed him over $12,000 dollars. He is a small business owner so that kind of money would have left him in a terrible economical position. There’s even a name for that kind of financial ordeal: ‘catastrophic dental health expenditure’ (CDHE). So when he learned how much he would save by doing his dental work during his vacation it took him just minutes to made up his mind.

 
You don’t have to spend that much to get a wonderful smile makeover. Here at Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry we use the very best materials for your treatment, the same FDA approved materials that American and Canadian doctors use back home. Our doctors have also years of experience and our patients always praise the rest of our staff. We will do our best to let you feel relaxed and among friends.

 
Most of the time, new patients like Shady are surprised the first time they enter our clinic because they didn’t expect it to be such a modern and upscale facility, decorated with Doctor German Arzate’s sculptures and art. Doctor German Arzate is the head dentist at our clinic. Shady is pictured above with our doctor Wilmer Travieso.

 

This is a small message Shady left for us and the staff:

Very good job guys, Thank you

Laser Whitening in Cancun

 

Laser whitening is a great option for people who only want to improve the coloration of their teeth and have no problem with their shape or position. A white smile can make a great difference specially for people for people who have a business. Researchers have found out that people will like someone better on their first impression if they have a white nice smile. This is the reason why millions of people use laser whitening or whitening kits to fix the color of their smiles. Is perhaps one of the most popular procedures done by dentists.

 

Teeth molar incisive, Laser Whitening in CancunHow does laser whitening works?  You should understand what happens in the surface of your teeth when doing this procedure. Laser whitening works on the enamel, the outer layer of the tooth. The layer under the enamel is called dentin or dentine and it is usually a pale yellow color. The color of your teeth is usually affected by how thick the enamel is. In fact, if your gums recede and show the root of your tooth, they would appear yellowish because the roots are made of dentine and have barely no enamel around them.

 

Another reason why your teeth could have another color is the tiny microscopic pores on the enamel and those can be stained. Additionally, aging itself can be a decisive factor on the color of the enamel. And obviously there’s also the problem of cavities. Usually, cavities cannot be whitened with lasers or normal means, so instead, inlays or onlays can be done to restore the look of a tooth.
Teeth molar incisive, Laser Whitening in CancunAfter your teeth have been treated with laser whitening or other procedure, you should not drink coffee, sodas, wine or any pigment heavy liquids or foods, as well as smoking that day or the work done might be for naught. Remember, whitening is not permanent because your teeth will keep being in contact with food and liquids for the months to come. The good thing is that the cost of laser whitening is low at our dental clinic and you can do it quickly during your vacation.

Winter Vacation in Cancun while getting cheap dental work

 

You might like to know that many of our patients come to Cancun during the winter season for the most obvious of all: Cancun’s weather! Cancun is located  in the eastern side of Mexico. For all intents and purposes, Cancun has a tropical climate with little temperature variation between seasons. The average temperatures almost always stay over the 20°C or 68F, making it the perfect spot to spend the strongest part of the winter.

 

Our patients says they love Cancun on these days because they can go out to walk on the beach and even enjoy jungle tours, while, in comparison, they would have been turning up the heating back home, unable to go out. Also, they say they simply feel so energized because we have so much sun here. Just to give you an idea, in Winter’s Solstice (the shortest day of the year) we have 11 hours daylight!

 

Forget about snowstorms and blizzards and simply enjoy a little over a week in Cancun while you get your dental work gets done by our professional staff. That’s the other thing our patients love: the amazing helpful staff at our dental clinic in Cancun. They will always try to make you feel at home.

Get cheap dental cleanings in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry at low cost

 

For today’s case we are going to do a throwback to last October with our dear patient Amber from Alaska. She came with her husband Timothy to have a wonderful dental vacation in Cancun. They are pictured above with Doctor Wilmer Travieso, one of our dentists in Cancun. We talked about Timothy before in this post. Amber and Timothy had come to Cancun specifically looking for cheap dental cleanings because the estimate back home was too expensive (over $1000 USD). They knew a dental cleaning is essential to keep their mouth healthy.

 

People often neglect their teeth by pushing back their dentist appointment or ignoring them altogether. This is very worrisome as it is calculated that at least 50% of all American adults have some level of gum disease. Gum disease and other mouth related aliments  can start by the accumulation of bacteria from the left over food trapped between our teeth that not even brushing and normal flossing can reach. This is why is so important that you get a dental cleaning twice (or at least once) a year.

 

Amber and Timothy were very smart and made plans for a dental cleaning during their vacation days. They had looked through the internet and the amount of information and videos about Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry were the enough to make them decide this was the best option for them. The costs of dental cleanings was affordable and it wouldn’t take much time.

 

This is what Amber had to say about her experience with us:

Good service and helpful staff. Very helpful and friendly.

Thank you Amber! We always try to make our patients feel at home among friends. Our customer service will be with you at each step of your procedure, answering all your questions in English to make sure there are no confusions.

Affordable dental crowns, inlays, onlays, fillings, dental cleanings in Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry

 

Today we would like to thank to another of our dear patients, Aaron, who came from Canada. Aaron was looking for options to get his dental treatments for a good price. Sadly, the costs of dentistry where he lived were too expensive.  Then he found Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry where he could get dental cleanings, crowns, inlays and fillings for a fraction of a price without compromising the quality of materials.

 

Aaron came to Cancun to get dental work done but also to enjoy the Holidays. Cancun is the perfect option for a vacation in winter as the temperature never goes lower than 13°C/55F. In fact, last year we had a very temperate weather in December with a record low of 14°C/57F at night. While for most of the locals this is extremely cold, we know our dear patients from USA and Canada find this weather simply delightful. They take the chance to go out to walk on the beach, go fishing or take an adventure tour. During December there’s also the opportunity to go to Chichen Itza to witness the Winter Solstice event at the pyramid.

 

This is what Aaron had to say about us:

Doctors were good and had good information about up-keep and preventive care to keep good teeth. Staff was great to deal with I really enjoyed the staff.

 

This is very important for us. Our doctors will always explain to you all the necessary steps to take care of your dental work. They speak in English so everything is clear.

Bioactive Glass used for tooth filling

 

Current technology is advancing at a shocking pace and your dental fillings are just one of the things that will likely change in the future. You better start getting familiar with this now.

 

As some of our readers and patients might know already, the history of dental fillings as been a complicated one. Humans had always tried to find a way to cover the decay of their teeth one way or another, experimenting with all kinds of materials. Researches have found filling made out of beeswax from 6500 years ago. Sadly, organic materials would tend to rot themselves of accelerate tooth decay. It wasn’t until the 1800’s when the amalgam was developed to fill the tooth with softened metal containing a mix of copper, silver, tin and mercury. For a long time the presence of mercury was a red flag for many people, even when the safe amount of mercury has been regulated to make it safe for patients.

 

Even here at Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry, we use white resin fillings to give it a more natural look. This way no one will notice the work in your mouth. You can smile all you want!

 

In any case, researchers at the Oregon State University have made some promising findings about the ability to «bioactivate» glass to reduce the ability of bacteria to attack composite tooth filling, and perhaps even provide some of the minerals needed to restore the decayed area. This would prolong the life of composite tooth fillings! The idea is to use this special crushed glass and use it as part of the filling. It’s called «bioactive» because the body notices it is there and can react to it, as opposed to other biomedical products that are inert.  This will make strong

 

We will have to wait for them to continue their research. Hopefully, dentists in Mexico, USA and Canada will be able to use this new technology in the future to restore smiles on our patients. In the mean time, you can always come to our clinic during your vacation in Cancun.
