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

Meza Dental Care

Try www.thedentalplancr.com in Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, 20minutes from the Liberia International Airport (LIR).

Dr. Silvia Morales is the dentist, speaks both english and spanish, studied in the US. She is really great!

There is a boutique hotel on site for your stay.

If anyone prefers not to undertake this process on their own, costaricamedicalcare.com does a great job. They work with a number of the most respected Dentists and Doctors. They can handle everything from Your Dental appts,airline flights, transportation, lodging, meals..well you name it really. Kind of a Concierge service. I did not know about them when i chose Dr Obando but did find out when looking for a medical procedure. Certainly helps one with all the "bothersome details" and research. I was very relieved when I discovered that they often use NOVA and Dr Obando as I think they (The Morales at costaricamedicalcare) are very well informed and Professional.

From personal experience, I would definitely not use Dr Cavallini again. I am now having the same work re-done by Dr. Anglada in San Jose. Dr. Cavallini may well be among the cheapest but he does shoddy work. I have had 2 implants poorly done. The implants are of reduced size, one is crooked, the temporary crown fell off after 2 weeks, the permanent crown constantly gets food stuck under it and after more than a year, I still feel discomfort from the forward implant as it moves slightly under pressure. I am now getting Dr. Anglada to remove these implants & start over with appropriate sized implants and appropriate crowns, rather that the cheap sh** Dr Marco uses. So.... buyer beware. Dr. Cavallini may be cheap, but Dr Anglada does far better work!
