Cosmetic dentistry is booming in Costa Rica – for two simple reasons: affordability and great results. Thanks to the miracle of modern cosmetic dentistry, you can sport a flawless smile without having to break the bank – you’ll be amazed at how quick and affordable it can be.
Dental porcelain veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic customized to fit over the surface of a tooth to cover worn enamel, correct uneven tooth alignment, or fill in chips or cracks.
Metal-free Crowns & Bridges
When a tooth is extensively damaged for reconstruction with a filling, inlay or veneer, a crown is the solution. Our porcelain crowns (and inlays and bridges) are metal-free (no metal core) and give excellent aesthetic results. With our porcelain or zirconium crowns there is no irritation of gingival tissue and no black metallic lines from receding gums. Allergic reactions are less likely, and the crowns look and perform like natural teeth.
Dental implants are the best solution for replacing single or multiple missing teeth. A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces the root of a missing natural tooth. It is inserted in the jaw bone and left to heal for a period that varies depending on the patient’s bone quality and quantity. An artificial tooth can be attached after the implant merges with the bone. The cost of an implant varies from country to country, but at Dr. Arnoldo Anglada Dental Care Clinic in Costa Rica you get high quality standards at a surprisingly affordable cost.
Restoring broken teeth can be very expensive, but composites can save you money over time. With a silver filling, the tooth weakens and becomes more prone to breaking. A composite filling, on the other hand, bonds to the tooth and restores most of its original strength.
Costa Rica is a dream destination for tooth whitening. At Dr. Arnoldo Anglada Dental Care Clinic we can whiten your natural tooth enamel with simple non-invasive treatments that attack spots or discoloration from foods or aging or the darkening that accompanies injured teeth. Our all-inclusive whitening system consists of bleaching materials, a bleaching light, and a full range of disposable accessories, enabling us to vary the level of whitener. The white light included in the protocol, which can illuminate all upper and lower teeth simultaneously, enhances the whitening effect. The entire treatment usually takes about 90 minutes.
Teeth can sometimes be uneven. When one tooth is notably longer than others, we can use several techniques to sculpt it down to size quickly and painlessly.
