Going to Mexico for cheap dental work? You will get cheap dental work.

Since we live so close to the Mexico border, every once in a while you hear a story about someone that goes to Tijuana in order to “save money” on “cheap” dental work.

If this is something you’ve considered, I implore you to read this post. If you don’t want to read, please understand this:

If you go to a “cheap” dentist, anywhere, you will always get “cheap” dental work that will end up costing you more money in the long run.

Before & After: Crown replacement

This patient hated her crowns. They were done 10 years ago to mask her tetracycline-stained teeth.

She also had an open bite. Several other doctors told her she needed to have her jaw broken, braces, and 28 crowns done to restore her bite. She was very concerned about having “fake looking teeth”.

To top all that off, she is phobic, and wanted to be sedated to have any dental work.

Veneer before & after patient

Before, this patient did not like her old veneers. They were too bulky, the gumline was uneven and the bite was off, causing her to keep breaking the porcelain.

In 2 visits, we changed her entire bite. I used the laser to level the gumline (hence the need for 2 visits) and opened her bite so I could take the force off of the front teeth and stabilize her occlusion.

CAD Smiles is a new concept that only a select few dentists in San Diego can do, and as far as I know, we are currently the only office in Encinitas that offers it.

Basically, this is a way for you to get a complete smile makeover in one day.

A master lab technician who specializes in smile makeovers comes into our office and mills your crowns on the 3D milling machine – matching and customizing them to your desired optimal shape, color, and esthetics.

Every client that comes in is unique. We combine a variety of different techniques and treatments to create a better smile for them.

Some of our patients come in and have been insecure with their teeth for years. Others are afraid. So they’re often taken back when the entire visit goes by without pain, and they have a great smile in only a couple hours. They wonder what they were waiting for and why they didn’t do it sooner.

We’re like like dental ninjas.
