In dentistry, a veneer is a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth, or to protect a damaged tooth surface. There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer, composite(Lumineers) and porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental laboratory, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Rely X ARC. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.

Dental Implants  If you are considering to replace missing teeth and would like to know more about Dental Implants Surgery in Costa Rica. ADULT DENTISTRY OF COSTA RICA we use the most recognized brands of dental implants around the world .  When someone loses  their teeth, they also lose  the confidence to smile or speak. Besides, the malocclusion or bite, which generates the tooth loss, could have a negative effect over the eating habits and this could lead to secondary health problems, like malnutrition.  dental implant is a device made of titanium destined to be the artificial substitute of the root of a missing tooth, and is used to replace from a tooth, up to generalized bone restoration of the entire mouth. Usually, they have the shape of a screw (threaded) and are made of biocompatible materials that don't produce allergic reactions or rejection and allow bone integration (binding to the bone). This implant is inserted into the jawbone or maxillary by a surgical drilling system which causes less trauma, and will serve as support for the future pieces or crowns to be replaced. By replacing the lost teeth through dental implants most of the alveolar bone is preserved since this is reabsorbed by not receiving any stimulus, and by definitely losing the natural teeth. The implants act as an anchor and can be used to substitute only one tooth, one or two ends of a bridge, of a complete denture or even functioning as a removable denture with one hybrid bar screwed to them. The age is not a problem when it comes to the placement of an implant, but good health and adequate bone structure are required.

Dental Bridges
Root canals
$300  -  $500 Enquire
Root Canal Therapy is necessary when the inside of the tooth and area around it becomes infected due to cracking, deep decay or injury. "Endodontics" is the area of dentistry dealing with root canals, it literally means inside the tooth.  After numbing your tooth but before beginning the actual process of performing the root canal treatment, your dentist will stretch a sheet of rubber around your tooth. Dentists call this sheet of rubber a "rubber dam". It is held in place by a small clamp that grasps your tooth. Now the process of performing the root canal can begin, we will get access to that area inside the tooth that needs to be cleaned. This is accomplished by using a dental drill and making an access hole which leads to the pulp chamber of the tooth. On back teeth this hole is made on the chewing surface of the tooth, on front teeth the access hole is made on the tooth's backside. The next step of the root canal treatment process is to clean out the interior of your tooth, this cleaning process will remove any bacteria, toxins, nerve tissue, inside your tooth. Once the tooth has been thoroughly cleaned we will fill in and seal up its interior by placing root canal filling material. The most common root canal filling material being used by dentists now days is a rubber compound called gutta percha. A root canal sealer (a paste) is usually used in conjunction with gutta percha cones. After finished the filling and sealing aspect of the root canal process they will place a filling in the access hole they created at the beginning of your treatment.

We have all the information you need about public and private Costa Rican dental clinics. Compare all the dentists and contact the dentist in Costa Rica who's right for you.

A recent World Health Organization (WHO) report rated Costa Rica’s health system above that of the USA*. A high level of professional training and an impressive public healthcare system reflect in the private care available to Medical Tourists. Once known mainly for its acclaimed promotion of ecotourism, dentistry in Costa Rica is now gaining significant international recognition.

A study at the University of Costa Rica showed that almost 14% of visitors to the country come in search of its medical expertise. The well-educated, tech-savvy population is gaining Costa Rica the reputation of a Central American 'Singapore', with industry analysts putting it in the top three offshore development destinations for American companies along with China and India.

Professional Aftercare

One of the most interesting aspects of the Medical Tourism industry in Costa Rica is in the area of recuperation facilities. While other destinations offer high quality hotels and accommodation, Costa Rica goes a bit further. Once a treatment has been completed, patients are able to check into dedicated recuperation centres. These centres have excellent accommodation and relaxation facilities but also provide qualified nurses and medical workers to help monitor their client’s condition and keep doctors updated on the recovery progress.

Regional benefits

Most doctors in Costa Rica spend much of their time maintaining the country’s excellent public healthcare system. Revenue from the treatment of foreign patients enables local medical specialists to continue devoting their resources to the local healthcare. Benefits are mutual, with skills passing between the two sectors. In addition to dental and cosmetic practice the Medical Tourism boom is enabling corrective eye surgery clinics to open and encourage hospitals — such as CIMA Hospital San Jose — to seek Joint Commission International certification.

Dentists in Costa Rica have the advantage of being able to offer patients dedicated recuperation centres in sun-filled tropical surroundings. As the regions leading healthcare destination it attracts patients from the U.S as well as neighbouring countries to take advantage of the low-cost, high-quality dental care available.

The Colegio De Cirujanos Dentistas overseas all Costa Rica's dental practices. It's practices conform to the very highest standards represented in world dentistry. A lengthy college career of 6 years is followed by a commitment to continuing education over the entire course of a dentist's career. To benefit from research and developments in US dentistry many Costa Rican dentists maintain not only local affiliations but membership of the American Dental Association (ADA) and of those US dental associations connected to the specialties they practice.

A combination of lower local wages and costs allow Costa Rican dentists to operate with the same materials and equipment as their North American counterparts at far lower prices. The same implant that might cost $2000 or more in the US can cost under $1000 in Costa Rica. Our most popular destination in Costa Rica is San Jose and San Pedro.

You can also consider Mexico for your dental needs, where for similarly low price the same quality treatments are offered.

Dentists in Costa Rica - Qualifications

Costa Rica’s Board of Dental Surgeons, Public and Private Dental Universities, Professional Associations and Specialist Boards, all work together to oversee and maintain the high quality of dentistry in Costa Rica. The Board of Dental Surgeons governs all practising dentists in the country with continuing education required for all members. Regular inspections of clinics are carried out by the National Health Department to ensure strict standards of sterilisation and health are maintained.

Formal training for all Costa Rican dentists begins in university where students undergo six years of education from the University of Costa Rica or similar courses from various private universities. Many graduates then travel abroad to further their dental knowledge in a specific area of dentistry.

Practicing dentists in Costa Rica receive the same education, have access to the same hi-tech medical equipment and follow the same Board Certification Requirements as a dentist in the United States, Canada or Europe. A reputable dental practice in Costa Rica will be a member of the American Dental Association, the international authority providing continuing education and teaching in the advancement of Dental Science.
