What are Dental Veneers?
A dental veneer is a restorative material, either composite or porcelain, that is placed over a tooth’s surface for aesthetic and protection purposes. Veneers are used all around the world to improve the appearance of damaged teeth, and are usually expensive because of the materials and the charges of the dental surgeons performing the procedure.

- Considering that they are responsible for producing dental materials and that they have a much lower cost of living, tooth veneers in Mexico cost much lower than in the US or Canada.
- A patient can save up to 50 per cent or even more on most dental work like veneers, dentures, mouth restoration, and dental implants in Tijuana and other Mexican cities.
You can also consider getting dental veneers in Los Algodones – the dental tourism capital of the world just a few miles from Yuma, AZ.
Planning a Mexican Dental Trip
Before planning a trip to Mexico for dental work, make sure you that you have the necessary information. The following are some steps you can take:
- Consult with your dentist and ask for copies of your X-rays or other images that can help the Mexican oral surgeon study your case for the dental work.
- Contact a reputable dental tourism company that is networked to the best dental clinics, and hospitals in Mexico. The dentists in our network are highly qualified and they treat international patients regularly. Most of them received training in the United States.
- In choosing a location, consider all the factors that affect your budget. For instance, there are times when a Bangkok cosmetic dentistry clinic offers a lower price than one in Mexico. However if you are from the US, you might end up spending more for airfare to Asia than for the actual procedure.
- Inform the agency and the clinic if you want to include side trips when you get to Mexico, or you need other tourist services while there. We would be glad to help make your dental trip a fun one.
In June of 2010, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that around 45 million people in the US did not have dental insurance.
