Clayton Kerrville,TX WhatClinic User
Reviewed 11 June 2015 "Everything fits well"
"I first used a Mexican dentist in ELPASO.TX in the mid 1980's. The prices were excellent...the people were very nice and knowledgeable and the end product was Great. I had new teeth put on my Metal upper Partial Denture. In 2009 I spent the winter in Mercedes ,TX and had occasion to go to over to Progresso ,MX...while I was there I checked out a couple dentists for future consideration. As it turned out I did need help some 6 months ago. I called Dr. Benitez' office made and appointment and the rest is History. I had several teeth extracted caps installed, a new Metal partial and except for one minor problem every thing went smooth! Again the people were very nice, very professions=al and helpful. I will certainly go back to Dr. Benitez in the future. I live 300+ miles away but well worth the drive and time.

My first visit we did a workup and the Dr. explained what I needed and having already figured all this out basically all we had to do was agree on price and procedure...this was done and the work was done in a timely, again, professional manner and everything fits well and I was satisfied. The cost was Very competitive. I was totally at ease with the staff and their work. I highly Recommend this clinic and the staff."

Reviewed 24 June 2015 "My experience with Dr. Benitez was great"
"I went in to get an upper denture plate and to get all my upper teeth pulled but Dr. Benitez advised against pulling so many healthy teeth. Instead he will fit me with a permanent bridge. Currently, I'm wearing the temporary bridge, everything so far has been great though.

My experience with Dr. Benitez was great, he is very knowledgeable and my appointment was handled very well by his receptionist, Aby. Everyone in the office is very professional and I feel very comfortable there."

Reviewed 10 July 2015 "Don't go anywhere else but here"
"I saw an implant specialist through this clinic in January. I received a deep cleaning and a Straumann implant on the right side. I was to return in 4 months for the abutment and crown. I was also going to have a sinus lift and two implants done on the left side when I returned.

I was a little disappointed in the 'deep cleaning' because it took less than 10 minutes for the dental assistant to do it - not enough for a true deep cleaning. I was very happy however with the implant work that I had done. The dentist gave me something for pain, but I never needed to take it. I used Aleve once, then there was no more pain or swelling. When the time came to return, I was having some financial struggles so I contacted another dentist. Long story short, it was a terrible decision. The healing was long and painful and the implants fell out of my mouth after less than 3 weeks. I am now out almost $2,000. Now I have to start saving my money again and return to Benitez for the work to be finished. Don't go anywhere else but here."

Dentistry

$150  -  $250
Bone Graft

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone in order to repair bone fractures that are extremely complex, pose a significant health risk to the patient, or fail to heal properly.

Bone generally has the ability to regenerate completely but requires a very small fracture space or some sort of scaffold to do so. Bone grafts may be autologous (bone harvested from the patient’s own body, often from the iliac crest), allograft (cadaveric bone usually obtained from a bone bank), or synthetic (often made of hydroxyapatite or other naturally occurring and biocompatible substances) with similar mechanical properties to bone. Most bone grafts are expected to be reabsorbed and replaced as the natural bone heals over a few months’ time.

$500
Braces
Dental braces

 (also known as braces

orthodontic cases

, or cases

) are devices used in orthodontics

 that align and straighten teeth

 and help to position them with regard to a person's bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct underbites

, as well as malocclusions

, overbites

, open bites, deep bites

, cross bites

, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth

 and jaw

. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate

 or jaws

 and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.

$60  -  $70
Dental Bonding

Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discolored tooth. Unlike veneers, which are manufactured in a laboratory and require a customized mold to achieve a proper fit, bonding can be done in a single visit. The procedure is called bonding because the material bonds to the tooth.

$510  -  $570
Dental Bridges
Free
Dental Checkup
$170  -  $190
Dental Crowns
$350  -  $370
Zirconia Crown

Zirconium crowns and bridges are so strong they can be used anywhere in the mouth. Zirconium crowns can withstand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as back teeth grinding.

The look of zirconium crowns and bridges is so close to natural teeth that it is hard to tell the difference and it is this quality which makes it very useable within dental work. Zirconium crowns can be fixed using traditional dental cements.

Zirconium crowns have quickly become the preferred material for dental crowns. Zirconium is a very strong substance that can endure wear and tear of everyday use. When looking at Zirconium crowns from an aesthetic point it is clear and very similar to a natural tooth and reflects light the same way. This may be important if your new crowns are on the front of your mouth and it is particularly relevant in cases where the crown will be seen next to the natural teeth.

$1000  -  $1500
Dental Implants

This method employs a non-submerged one-piece implant that has a metal collar designed to protrude through the gum while the bone is healing to the implant. After a suitable healing time, an abutment can be connected to the implant, allowing for fabrication of the crown to replace the missing tooth. Alternatively, a one-stage technique can be achieved by immediate connection of a temporary healing abutment to a two-piece implant that protrudes through the gum in much the same way as a one-piece implant. Both single stage and two-stage implants have similar success rates and you should ask your dentist which systems they use and discuss how one- or two-stage procedures might be appropriate for you.

$10  -  $50
Dental X-Ray

Radiographs, commonly know as x-rays, are an essential tool for your CDA member dentist to properly diagnose your oral health. They allow your dentist to see beyond what can be seen visually and provide the ability to diagnose dental disease in the early stages– before it has advanced to the point of causing discomfort and destruction. X-rays assist the dentist in determining the presence and degree of dental caries (cavities), periodontal disease, abscesses and abnormal growths, such as tumors or cysts. They also show the location and condition of impacted or unerupted teeth.

 
Dentist Consultation
$380
Dentures

Dentures are removable false teeth made from either acrylic or metal that replace missing teeth

$20  -  $30
Dentures Adjustment

Extractions

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, do not always erupt properly when they decide to make an appearance. It's wise to get an early opinion from your dentist on getting wisdom teeth removed before they become impacted, causing pain, swelling, infection, cavities or gum disease.

$30  -  $35
Non-Surgical Extractions

If you are experiencing extreme sensitivity or are suffering from advanced periodontal disease, you may be required to have a tooth extracted.  With a simple extraction, the dentist can safely remove the affected tooth without the need for major surgery.

$60  -  $200
Surgical Extractions
$30
Fillings

Composite is the filling of choice when it comes to matching your tooth color. Composite fillings consist of plastic and glass particles. They have become the most popular filling material because in addition to closely resembling your existing tooth color they also solidly bond or glue to the tooth. Also, they don’t contain mercury or any other metal like silver fillings and there is less likelihood of sensitivity to cold food and drinks.

$50  -  $70
Amalgam Filling

In dentistry, amalgam

 is an alloy

 of mercury

 with various metals used for dental fillings

. It commonly consists of mercury

 (50%), silver

 (~22–32% ), tin

 (~14%), copper

 (~8%), and other trace metals.

 Dental amalgams were first documented in a Tang Dynasty

 medical text written by Su Kung in 659, and appeared in Germany in 1528.

 In the 1800s, amalgam became the dental restorative material of choice due to its low cost, ease of application, strength, and durability.

$170  -  $190
Inlay or Onlay

In dentistry, an inlay is usually an indirect restoration (filling) consisting of a solid substance (as gold, porcelain or less often a cured composite resin) fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place.This technique involves fabricating the restoration outside of the mouth using the dental impressions of the prepared tooth, rather than placing a soft filling into the prepared tooth before the material sets hard.

An onlay is the same as an inlay, except that it incorporates a replacement for a tooth cusp by covering the area where the missing cusp would be. Crowns are onlays which completely cover all surfaces of a tooth.

$50  -  $80
Mouth Guard

A night guard is a thin piece of hard plastic made from impressions of your teeth placed on the upper or lower teeth.

Night guard is hard and durable, but it protects the teeth from wear since it is softer than teeth.

Night guard is adjusted to fit your bite evenly and smoothly when you try it.


$200
Root canals

A root canal treatment generally involves the removal and replacement of a tooth’s pulp. The pulp is soft tissue containing blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don't remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. During a root canal, the dentist removes the pulp, and the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Afterwards, the dentist places a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger.

$25  -  $40
Teeth Cleaning

During a dental cleaning, you’ll receive diagnostic and preventive services from your dentist as well as any needed educational information.

$40  -  $100
Scaling and Root Planing

If plaque and tartar is left on the teeth, as we mentioned before

, it provides the right conditions for bacteria to thrive. The bacteria irritate the gums, which means that they bleed more easily. You may notice this if you are brushing your teeth, or eating, and sometimes your gums may bleed a bit. This is the early stage of gum disease called gingivitis

. If you have gingivitis, your dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth by scaling and polishing

 them. They may also recommend an antiseptic mouthwash and show you how to brush and floss your teeth effectively. Most adults have some degree of gum disease.

$200
Teeth Whitening

The whitening process consists of bleaching stained or dull teeth. A dazzling smile is only a simple and painless procedure away!

$350
Veneers

Laminate veneers are a conservative treatment of unaesthetic anterior teeth. The continued development of dental ceramics offers clinicians many options for creating highly aesthetic and functional porcelain veneers. This evolution of materials, ceramics, and adhesive systems permits improvement of the aesthetic of the smile and the self-esteem of the patient. Clinicians should understand the latest ceramic materials in order to be able to recommend them and their applications and techniques, and to ensure the success of the clinical case. The current literature was reviewed to search for the most important parameters determining the long-term success, correct application, and clinical limitations of porcelain veneers.
