Porcelain Veneers vs. Dental Bonding

If you want to enjoy a brighter, more stunning smile, you have a number of cosmetic dentistry options to choose from. Two of the most popular and versatile treatments are porcelain veneers and dental bonding. Both treatments can achieve similar results, and they each have their own unique advantages. For example, if you are looking for a cheap dentist in San Diego, you may want to consider bonding. Although Dr. Georgaklis will provide outstanding results, this treatment typically costs less than other cosmetic procedures. On the other hand, if you want the most lifelike results possible, porcelain veneers may be a better solution. […]

Determining Your Candidacy for Porcelain Veneers

However, with so many cosmetic treatment options to choose from, it can be difficult to know if veneers are truly the right choice for you. Ultimately, your choice will depend on your aesthetic goals, overall dental health, and Dr. Georgaklis’ recommendations. […]

Can Music Relieve Dental Anxiety in Patients?

I have over 30 years of experience as a dentist, and in my career I have seen many patients with dental phobias and anxieties. These fears can be quite common. Many dental providers and myself have began to offer environments with television, music, calming décor, aromatherapy, etc. in order to help patients relax. The goal is to help patients achieve a level of comfort where they can receive the necessary treatment without the dental visit causing unnecessary stress. I strive to ensure that patients always have the most positive experience possible when they visit my San Diego office for cosmetic or orthodontic treatments. […]
