Winn Smiles
I enjoyed high quality service (used Dr Lara), great personalities on staff, and pleasant office environment. I got 2 crowns done at once, and paid for them out-of-pocket, since my insurance does not cover crowns. I found Winn Smiles to be pricy. The 2 crowns cost me $2800 for basic porcelain. I have had several crowns in my lifetime (I am 59 yrs old), and this was the first time I ever paid an additional charge ($306 each) for "build up". This is considered the "standard" charge, on top of the $1200 base charge per crown, and could be as high as $400. For my case here, "build up amounts to some filling material placed under the crown. No posts or anything like that. It was presented as a possible upcharge at the initial estimate, but I think the new trend in dentistry is to invent things to charge extra for. So just expect the maximum charge the estimate allows. I like the quality of the work done, but I feel like I paid the price of 3 crowns to get the 2.

Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
