Cosmetic Dentistry In Costa Rica Dental Tourism

Anyone had Porcelain Veneers or any other type of Cosmetic Dental work in Costa Rica?

I've been doing research for Porcelain Veneers and narrowed it down to these 3 dentists listed below, they all have websites. Anyone has used them or has pictures they can email me? (st5777@yahoo.com) Thanks.

Prisma Dental Care

Kaver Smiles

Nova Dental. I had 2 implants with no problems and minimal pain. Dr Obando is fantastic on the implants. I also had a root canal, crowns, sinus lift and all old fillings removed and replaced. A third the cost of quotes in FL and superior equipement, office and staff! I'm sold. Dr Obando and Chavarria are great. Since I finished work last Fall, I have Friends who had even more work done and were also very pleased! Nova Dental and Villa Escazu worked very well for me!

I recommend The Costa Rica Dental Team, they are well run and organized so you feel like you are in an office in the USA and their prices are very competitive fro most procedures including veneers.

Get a free quote for them if you want.,

Hi Lainie, I was just looking through TA posts for fun and came across your message. I suppose you have done lots of research by now, but in case you are still looking into implants, I still stand behind Dr. Anglada (and his partner, Dr. Castro). It has been almost 3 years now since my husband had his implant done, and we are still very happy with it. In addition, we have made 2 more trips for additional work (crowns, fillings, inlays etc) and been very happy with the quality and especially the price compared to the highway robbery here in Minnesota. If you want to contact me, feel free, I like telling people how good our experience was! (320) 968-3300, cathytousey@gmail.com . (I think if you click on my name it will show you my previous posts?)

Is anyone familiar with Dr Marcos at http://www.aestheticdentistrycr.com/home.html ???

I thought I would read a lot more posts here about this dental office since they advertise online over 20,000 implants completed to date at a price of only $500 per implant for immediate load and $600 for the more traditional two stage implant. And only $300 for porcelain fused to precious metal crowns.

I was getting ready to pull the trigger and get a number of implants and crowns but did not know there are so many other popular choices in costa rica. Anyone have any comments on this dental office and the cosmetic dentistry they provide in san jose?

I agree with Cathy -- I'm going back down there on Monday for more work. You get what you pay for down there just like anything in life. You can get things done cheaper but will you be happy? I've heard too many bad stories about other dentists so give Dr Anglada & Dr Castro a call and get an estimate!

Feel free to send me a memo for more referrals too

Thanks,

Scott

I spoke to NOVA dental about immediate load implants after reading of them elsewhere, mainly out of curiousity. They will not perform them due to the failure rate. My advice BE CAUTIOUS and do your homework. I could not find a single negative comment on the NOVA Dental Team anywhere! Dr Obando and Chavarria were excellent. I actually looked forward to returning for the final work. Truly a first for me!
