Joni Florida Clinic Patient
Reviewed 04 August 2014
"When have you heard someone say, "I loved my visit to the dentist”? That’s exactly how I feel about my totally, positive trip to Costa Rico Dental Clinic Lab. The initial decision to cross International borders for my extensive dental work was based on one thing only: the high cost of treatment here in Florida. I am a single, retired woman in my seventies, living on a modest, fixed income. I have reached the age where my old fillings and crowns are cracking and falling off. I’ve also lost some teeth due to periodontal disease. All my life, I had cared well for my straight, handsome teeth. I never imagined that, as years passed, I’d be faced with 2 impossible choices. Either I had to go into debt for $28,000 to get implants, bridges and crowns or have a mouthful of teeth pulled in preparation for the cheaper option, total dentures. As a former journalist, I did some extensive research before selecting both the country and the best clinic to do my dental work. The cost of procedures was important and I liked the idea of the lab work being done in-house. The resumes of dentists and technicians were impressive, as well, but there was something else which made me completely comfortable with my choice of Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab. I loved reading the reviews from all the happy former patients. How pleased I was to find that it was all true. Franciso and Geovanna really did meet us at the airport, as well as drive us to and from our hotel for clinic appointments. I’d convinced my daughter and son-in-law, who also needed a variety of procedures, to join me on my Costa Rican dental adventure. Francisco had arranged for the whole staff at the clinic to deal only with my family’s multiple dental needs. It was all done in 3 days with speed, professionalism, concern and gentleness. We left that beautiful country with permanent crowns & bridges, sparkling whitened teeth and wonderful new friendships."
Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab responded to this review:

Hi Ms Joni, thank you for your beautiful words, it was a pleasure to meeting you all, we are very please the you are happy with your results and you experiences in COSTA RICA. I hope to see you again. Geovanna and COSTA RICA DENTAL CLINIC LAB team :0)

Reviewed 21 August 2014
"I am very pleased with the dental work I got done at Costa Rica Dental Clinic. I needed two permanent bridges that were priced at 6,500 US dollars in Naples, FL and I got it done for a fraction of that price. My teeth look amazing! The doctors at the clinic are very professional and patient. I have a lot of sensitivity and had been apprehensive to get the work done but the doctor was very patience and had great " Crisis Technics" that help me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab for any kind of dental work."
Costa Rica Dental Clinic Lab responded to this review:

Hi Ms Ibiza, THANK YOU we are very please that you are happy with the results of your bridges. It was very nice to meeting you and we hope you enjoy your stay in Costa Rica. COSTA RICA DENTAL CLINIC LAB, TEAM.

Gum Surgery
Cosmetic Gum Surgery (visible gum line) - Cosmetic gum surgery can help patients with smiles that show more gum than tooth to achieve a more attractive smile. In this procedure extra gum tissue is removed with a laser in order to expose more of the tooths surface. Cosmetic Gum Surgery (receding gum line) - As a result of age, gum disease, or a misaligned bite, patients may experience a gradual receding of the gums. This may cause discomfort as roots become exposed and loosening of the teeth occurs. To repair receding gums the cosmetic dentist will graft tissue taken from the roof of the mouth to the gum line. This "new" gum line will hold teeth in place and protect tooth roots from damage.

Root canals
When teeth undergo endodontic treatment, or root canal therapy, they are devitalized when the nerve and blood supply are cut off and the space which they previously filled, known as the "pulp chamber" and "root canal", are thoroughly cleansed and filled with various materials to prevent future invasion by bacteria. Although there may very well be enough tooth structure remaining after root canal therapy is provided for a particular tooth to restore the tooth with an intracoronal restoration, this is not suggested in most teeth. The vitality of a tooth is remarkable in its ability to provide the tooth with the strength and durability it needs to function in mastication. The living tooth structure is surprisingly resilient and can sustain considerable abuse without fracturing. Consequently, after root canal therapy is performed, a tooth becomes extremely brittle and is significantly weaker than its vital neighbors. Should an endodontically treated tooth not be properly protected, there is a chance of it succumbing to breakage from normal functional forces. This fracture may well be difficult to treat, such as a "vertical root fracture". Anterior teeth (i. e. incisors and canines), which are exposed to significantly lower functional forces, may effectively be treated with intracoronal restorations following root canal therapy if there is enough tooth structure remaining after the procedure.

Veneers
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.
