Cosmetic Dental Procedures in Costa Rica

Dental Implants

There are two important elements when choosing Dental Implants: the dentist and the brand of implants used. Many dentists in Costa Rica are certified IMPLANTOLOGISTS with many years of experience in working and teaching in the field of dental implants. They have successfully placed thousands of implants. The second element is: the brand of the implant. Most dentists use ZIMMER IMPLANTS. These implants are the best available on today’s market. They are known for their internal strength, anti-rotational, and come with a life time warranty.

Laser Teeth Whitening

The Zoom Laser Whitening System is a revolutionary dental whitening system applied to the tooth to obtain a whiter color. The results are amazing.

Porcelain Crowns and Bridges

Most dentists use IPS Empress® and e.max® crowns – the latest in dental all ceramic crown technology. IPS Empress crowns® and bridges are all ceramic which gives the most vital and lifelike appearance of any crown fabricated today. All appliances are made in professional labs which are also equipped with Ziron-Zahn Zirconiem Technology from Zermat.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a simple way to quickly change the shape, color, length or width of your teeth. They can be used to change the overall appearance of your smile or used on one or two teeth to correct a specific cosmetic problem.


Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth typically made out of an acrylic resin which at times incorporate porcelain or metal for additional structural support. There are two main types of dentures. Both Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures are finely crafted, custom-fitted. If you properly maintain your dentures they will appear natural and provide a perfect smile. Additionally, dentures help strengthen muscles controlling your expressions that require the support of your teeth, rid you of pronunciation problems caused by missing teeth and aid with chewing.

Root Canals

There are tiny canals within your tooth that may become infected. This leads to the pulp inside your tooth becoming infected as well. A root canal is performed to clean out and fill the tooth. Afterwards, the tooth receives either a filling or a crown.

Composite Fillings (Bondings)

The dental bonding procedure utilizes a composite resin and is used for a variety of structural as well as cosmetic purposes. One can draw a parallel between dental bonding materials and a sculptor’s clay. By using dental composite resin bonding your dentist can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile.
