I was impressed by the warm welcome, professional staff and state-of-the-art equipmentDebbie, Canada, 17 12 18

I have a small mouth so dental appointments have been a most uncomfortable experience in the past. Dr Kevin was wonderful - very gentle and considerate! He explained what was going to take place every step of the way. Dr Kevin reviewed a short term and long term treatment plan. I also appreciated the kindly way he spoke with his assistant which contributed to a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. Dentoamerica was recommended by friends who vacation in Nuevo Vallarta. My husband & I made our appointment online and were provided with pricing which was very affordable. The taxi ride was just 70 pesos from our hotel. I was impressed by the warm welcome, professional staff and state-of-the-art equipment. My first visit included x-rays and cleaning. I returned the following week for two small fillings. Dr Keven made sure my bite was correct and comfortable. The appointment only took one hour. The clinic is located in the Nuevo Walmart Mall, so my husband was able to do a little shopping and have time to enjoy an ice-cream cone. The waiting room is very modern and pleasant with comfy sofas, TV and free wifi. I highly recommend Dentoamerica!

Best fillingsMelanie, US, 08 03 17

We had our teeth cleaned at this clinic and my husband has had a filling replaced. The filling was on a front tooth and I have looked several times and it is nearly impossible to see...terrific job! The cleanings are exactly as they were at home in the US only cheaper. Very thorough. my first impression of this office is that it is clean. All the dental tools were clean and sanitized and the equipment in the office was as modern as any office I have been in north of the border. Face masks were used and dental gloves. This is a very consciencious practice.

Gum Surgery $600 - $800
Gum surgeryGums are an important part of our body. They house the teeth which we employ to eat food, the energy currency of our body. Without healthy gums, we cannot expect to have healthy teeth. However, not all of us fully realize this and neglect their well being. This results in to different types of gum diseases which can be cured only through gum surgery.
Gum Contouring and Reshaping $600 - $800
Gum contouring and reshapingGum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a cosmetic form of dental treatment used to improve the general look of a person’s teeth. It is primarily used in cases where the individual has what is commonly known as ‘gummy smile’. This is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth, usually the front teeth, and this can leave the length of the teeth looking too short, which can affect a person’s general desire to smile.Such a condition may be caused due to genetics, health circumstances or as a result of certain high blood pressure prescriptions. This can have an affect on an individual’s self-confidence and may see them do their best not to smile in public. Thankfully, gum contouring is a dental treatment which is painless and able to solve the problem of ‘gummy smile’ through quick and painless treatment
Soft Tissue Grafts $300 - $600
Soft tissue graft*There are three different types of soft-tissue grafts: °Free gingival grafts °Connective-tissue grafts °Pedicle grafts In a free gingival graft, a small strip of flesh is removed from the roof of the mouth (palate). The tissue, called the "graft," is then stitched to the gum tissue in the area being treated. A free graft is often used for people who naturally have little gum tissue around their teeth and need to have the gums enlarged. In a connective-tissue graft, a flap is cut in the roof of the mouth. The flap forms a "trap door" shape. Some tissue from under the flap is removed. The flap is then stitched back down. The tissue that was removed is known as subepithelial connective tissue. This graft tissue is slipped under the gum tissue that surrounds an exposed root. Then it is stitched into place. This is the most commonly used procedure for treating root exposure. A pedicle graft uses a flap of tissue from the gum of a tooth next to the one with recession. The flap is partially cut away, with one edge still attached. This flap is called a pedicle. It is slid sideways to cover the exposed root and stitched into place. A pedicle graft may be more successful than a free gingival graft. Thats because at least some of the blood vessels that feed the grafted section remain in place. However, a pedicle graft can be done only in certain cases. There must be a tooth next to the one being treated that has enough gum tissue to "share." With all of these procedures, many periodontists will use a periodontal dressing. This is a soft material with a texture like modeling clay. It will be used to cover and protect the grafted tissue for the first week or two of healing.

It was virtually pain-freeTom, Canada, 15 06 19

I am very happy with the service provided by Dr Liliana and her team. Located in Bucerias, she is a dental implant specialist. They use the world's best, Straumann, titanium implants. During the first consultation, she explained the procedure, answered questions and took an x-ray. Several days later, once the implant arrived, she did a great job of inserting it in place. It was virtually pain-free. I look forward to seeing her again to get a crown placed onto the implant. Of course, this was all done at a significantly lower price than in BC, Canada. Thanks!
