Destination Dental Work: Costa Rica a Top Choice

John’s a 77-year-old retired lawyer from Austin, Texas.  He’s a fairly nondescript looking American, possibly of Scandinavian descent. He’s seated next to me on the plane to San Jose, Costa Rica. He’s wearing dark pants, a light solid shirt and a dark suit jacket. He isn’t dressed like your stereotypical beach goer or cruise shipper. Yet, he doesn’t look like he’s in a business mode. He sports practical shoes rather than shiny leathers. Since I can’t peg him and his travels, I ask why he’s headed to Costa Rica. Dental work. Read more here: Shared from:

Dental Bonding Can Alter the Look of Your Teeth

How Dental Bonding Can Alter the Look and Feel of Your Teeth Dental bonding can be an economical solution for stained, broken, or chipped teeth and other minor cosmetic dentistry issues. Have a chipped, broken, or stained tooth? Dental bonding can make it look like new again without causing too much damage to your budget. “Bonding is a relatively inexpensive way to make minor dental repairs,” says Kimberly Harms, DDS, a dentist in Farmington, Minn. and consumer advisor for the American Dental Association (ADA).

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable Partial Dentures Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. Depending on your needs, your dentist will design a partial denture for you. A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your teeth, or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to attach to your natural teeth with devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than clasps. Crowns on your natural teeth are sometimes needed to improve the fit of a removable partial denture and they are usually required with attachments. Partial dentures with precision attachments generally cost more than those with clasps. Consult with your dentist to find out which type is right for you. What to expect:   In the beginning, your new partial denture may feel awkward or bulky. This is normal, and you will eventually become accustomed to wearing it. Inserting and removing the partial denture will require some practice. Follow all instructions given by your dentist. [...]
