"I haven't stopped smiling"
100%Reviewed 28 Jun 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
My initial visit was very informed, they took a full scan and gave me several options including the one I had initially had come down to get done. After reviewing the X-Rays Dr. Benitez had given me a better plan that not only gave me a nicer smile but was also very reasonable in pricing to go the extra step and basically get my full upper teeth all done with bridge work. I plan to go back and work out a plan to get the bottom teeth done now. Since returning to Canada I haven't stopped smiling!!

I visited Dr. Benitez office on June 9th, 2017 after arriving from Canada. My experience was excellent, Aby at the front desk, whom I had the pleasure of finally meeting after spending weeks back and forth asking questions and getting information on not just the Dentists, but the pricing and where to stay and how to get to the office once arriving in Harlingen Texas (The closest airport to their office) was very professional and very affordable. I had spent several months researching different offices and locations and it was Aby who calmed my fears and I trusted! I finally decided to get my teeth finally done. It was very well worth the trip!!

"I can not say enough about the way we have been treated"
100%Reviewed 16 Feb 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I was referred to Dr Benitez by several friends in the US but had been reluctant to go across the border because of the many stories from the past. Nonsense.. I went with a friend several weeks ago and was soooo pleased that I did. I had two permanent bridges, two cavities repaired (can't see where, and they are on my front teeth) and two implants. Not only was it painless but I saved a mere $38,000 from the quotes I received from San Antonio Dentists.

I was so pleased with the work and cost that I took my youngest son who needed 19 cavities and a deep cleaning done. I had been told that he needed his wisdom teeth extracted and it would have to be done via oral surgery and the cost was astronomical. After going to Dr Benitez, he showed us the xrays of the wisdom teeth and they were straight and did not need surgery at all. After all said and done we saved another $11,000 and the repairs were painless.

Next was my oldest son who had just been to the dentist in San Antonio that had charged him $130 to fill one cavity. They told him that he had 9 more that needed to be filled but that would not do the work or even clean his teeth unless he had this special gum treatment that cost $300 first. We went to Dr. Benitez and guess what! One cavity easily repaired on his front tooth( can't see the repair at all) a good cleaning revealed that he did not need any other work! total cost $55.

To say that we are pleased is somewhat understated. Tomorrow I am taking my wife to have a checkup and cleaning done.

I can not say enough about the way we have been treated by the staff. They are incredible.. Abby speaks better English than I do so don't worry about the language barrier because there is not one. Also if you need other services like eye glasses, pharmacy etc. they can help you find the right one and take the worry out of which to choose. I found glasses with the help of Abby and I got progressive lenses with exam and frames for $140. I paid $800 in San Antonio.

I hope this helps someone find the right dentist in Progresso because there are so many to choose from

Extremely clean and sanitary. Xray technology was amazing.

"I definitely will return."
90%Reviewed 15 Feb 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I was at this clinic in 2016 and was very happy with the two root canals I had done. In 2017 I returned because part of my tooth/filling came out. Dr. Francisco made an overlay. Both the temporary and the permanent piece fit perfectly. I especially am happy with the spacing between my teeth both years. I do not get food caught in them.

This clinic is professional but personable right away when you walk in. My dentist looked young but did a very professional job on my overlay. The office looks clean and well kept. I definitely will return next year to have my teeth cleaned and any other work completed.

"It has been just a week today and I am still on cloud nine"
100%Reviewed 13 Jan 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Teeth Cleaning, Extractions, Dental Bridges
I had a deep cleaning and had to have 6 teeth removed. I had expected that I would need dentures on the top but to my relief I only needed a bridge on top and bottom. I was not for one moment doubtful about the dental work. Most of the teeth removed were on top. They made a temporary plate for me to wear, they told me they were not going to let me leave without teeth. I was certainly Happy about that. My teeth had been hurting for so long I never expected sudden relief but that is exactly what happened. My two permanent bridges were ready and match my permanent teeth so well. Best dentist I have ever ever been to.
I had such a great experience here. I would highly recommend this clinic to anybody! The dentist and his assistants are experienced and very helpful and gladly answer any questions. I have a very special thank you to Abby and Ana. Absolutely loved them. And Dr. Benitez was outstanding. He told me if I was his mother this is what he would do for her. So he did and I am so grateful. It was a painless procedure. Normal soreness from the removal was expected. No bleeding and I had no pain afterward. Now I am home, have a mouth full of wonderful teeth which I had not had in several years. I can actually smile again without holding my hand over my mouth. It has been just a week today and I am still on cloud nine. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I do not like to discuss the cost of anything but will tell you no one in the states could come close to his price or his work. The clinic is state of the art. Very very clean.

"Great experience"
100%Reviewed 10 Jan 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Extractions, Dentures, Teeth Cleaning
I went to Benitez Dental to have all my teeth removed and get full dentures as I only had 20 teeth left and 4 were infected. Dr. Susie advised against that for many reasons that she outlined for me. So I took her advise and got the 4 infected teeth extracted, got a deep cleaning, and they took impressions for partial dentures. They were very caring and professional. There was almost no pain and the whole procedure was done in half a day for a fraction of the cost in the US. Great experience!
I chose the Benitez clinic based on reviews, location, and price. I was extremely pleased with the entire experience. The clinic was very clean. The staff was courteous and professional and very friendly. Most of them spoke good english and Aby at the front desk was there to clarify as her english is perfect and fluent. She makes you feel very comfortable. I would recommend them highly to anyone!

"The professionalism of this clinic is beyond comparison."
100%Reviewed 10 Jan 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Bone Graft, Dental Implants
After loosing my front tooth due to a football injury, it finally died and started to turn dark. No pain, but Castle Dental recommended removal. The prosthetic took 3 weeks to make and was uncomfortable. I broke the first one, lost the second and finally accepted the fact that I needed a permanent fix. Had my molars removed too and the " specialist " left bone pieces that I removed myself. Pain!!! Dr. Alex recommended 4 posts to start. He installed all four in 2 sessions (days) and my "flipper" was ready by the time I had a margarita at the TEXAS Bar with Frank. The prosthetic he made was much more comfortable and realistic. You cannot go wrong with Dr. Benitez

The professionalism of this clinic is beyond comparison. Abby and Anna are the epitome of grace, good nature and compassion. I was treated respectfully and felt special with all the staff. Dr. Benitez, however, is the dentist of my dreams. Compassionate, gentle, focused, and exact. Down to the millimeter. Such a personable professional is rare indeed. I highly recommend his services and can guarantee satisfaction will be achieved. Thanks Doc and Ladies. See you soon.

"It was a great experience. Wonderful and pain free"
100%Reviewed 12 Dec 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Root Canals, Dental Crowns, Dentist Consultation
I had a pain free root canal with a pin put in place to stabilize sthe tooth and crown. After permanent crown was put in place I had impressions done for a partial. I go back tomorrow to have it fitted. I wasn't a candidate for implants. After having xrays a partial was the only option. Dr.Benitez and Dr.Susez were professional, courteous and friendly. The office and exam area were bright and spotless. Abby at the front desk will translate anything you don't understand . She is friendly, out going and ready to help. I would recommend this office to my family and friends and will make the 1700 mile trip for future dental work. Prices that were quoted before any work was done was very reasonable. I was quoted 8235.00 US at home and was charged 900.00US dollars here. It was a great experience.
Wonderful and pain free

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.

$650  -  $660
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.

$600  -  $610
Dental Bridges
$200  -  $210
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  -  $1100
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
$400  -  $410

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

$40  -  $45
Dentures Adjustment

As the time goes by, we loose bone tissue and it's necessary to adjust dentures so that you feel comfortable.

$60  -  $70
Dentures Repair
If your denture brakes you need to repair it, we can repair it for you.
$450  -  $500
Flexible Partial Dentures
$500  -  $1000
Full Dentures
$30  -  $40

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.

$50  -  $60

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.

Implant Dentist Consultation
$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.

$80  -  $100
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  -  $210
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  -  $210
Teeth Whitening

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

$350  -  $400

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.
