Dr. Rafael Yanez’s comprehensive approach to dentistry allows for exceptional smile function and aesthetics built on a foundation of excellent oral health.
Philadelphia, PA — As a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and a Diplomate of the International Dental Implant Association, Rafael Yanez, DMD is well-known for his expertise in implant dentistry. While dental implants are a chief area of focus for the Philadelphia dentist, he notes that the full scope of his practice extends well beyond implant-related treatments. In fact, he offers a comprehensive range of dental services, including a complete span of general, preventative, cosmetic, and restorative options.
According to Dr. Yanez, a key attribute of every great smile is a foundation of good oral wellness. As a result, he says he takes pride in performing 3D imaging and digital x-rays, teeth cleanings, periodontal therapy, and various other general and preventative services to ensure his patients achieve—and maintain—excellent oral wellness while protecting against future issues that may negatively impact smile aesthetics and/or tooth function. He also remains an active member of both the American Dental Association and the Pennsylvania Dental Association to stay abreast of the latest routine care advancements and recommendations for patients of all ages.
In regard to cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Yanez offers porcelain veneers, Invisalign®, and Zoom!® teeth whitening. These treatments can be performed individually to address specific concerns, or they can be grouped together in any combination to create a full smile makeover that resolves a variety of different issues. Technologies like iTero® intraoral scanning and 3D milling enable Dr. Yanez to custom-design and manufacture veneers and Invisalign® trays in-house, leading to what he describes as more personalized and effective treatment. As a member of the International Academy of Facial Aesthetics, he also has a unique understanding of how the appearance of the smile affects the rest of the face, which he explains is critical to achieving exceptional cosmetic dentistry results that accentuate one’s natural facial beauty in addition to the smile.
Lastly, when it comes to restorative dentistry, Dr. Yanez provides fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures, the latter three of which can be secured through traditional means or anchored in place via dental implants to replace missing and/or damaged teeth. Using iCAT® Cone Beam imaging, 3D milling, 3D printing, and other state-of-the-art dental technologies, the Philadelphia dentist is able to precisely plan treatment and fabricate many restorations right in his office for optimal efficiency and customization—which he notes is particularly beneficial for All-on-4® cases, full mouth reconstructions, and complex dental implant procedures.
For anyone seeking dental care, Dr. Yanez says a comprehensive approach to dentistry can allow for the proper diagnosis and treatment of oral concerns both large and small in the most effective manner possible. “No dental treatment is one-size-fits-all, so offering a complete span of care enables a dentist to provide the absolute best solution(s) for every individual based on their unique needs and goals, ultimately resulting in an optimal balance between aesthetics and oral wellness for a healthy, beautiful, long-lasting smile.”
