When it comes to maintaining one’s youth and beauty, many people think it’s all about the skin or the hair. But don’t forget your teeth! Discolored, chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth also play a significant role in your attractiveness and youthful appearance. Contrary to what you may think, improving your smile doesn’t always require a complex and invasive set of procedures, especially when the imperfections are cosmetic. If cosmetic imperfections on your teeth are obscuring the beautiful radiance of your smile, dental veneers may be a great solution. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of one tooth, a few, or a full set.
That’s the good news. The less fun news is that in the United States, a full set of veneers could cost you up to $30,000 or more. There’s no doubt that a radiant smile is priceless, but there’s no need to spend that much money when just a few minutes away from the U.S. border in Tijuana, Mexico, you can get the same excellent service by top-tier dentists using the highest quality materials—at a fraction of the cost. Read on for more information about the cost of porcelain veneers in Mexico.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are wafer-thin tooth-colored shells that are custom-made to fit over the teeth in order to correct cosmetic imperfections and create a brighter, more uniform appearance to the teeth. They can also provide additional structural support to weakened teeth. The dental veneer procedure involves filing down a small amount of enamel from the surface of the tooth in order to create a natural and seamless fit for the veneer. A special bonding material is then used to adhere the veneer to the tooth, correcting stains, chips, slight misalignment, disproportionate tooth size, or other cosmetic issues. The veneers are typically made from porcelain or composite resin.
What is a full set of dental veneers?
Every smile is different. When it comes to transforming a smile with veneers, there’s no single way to do it. It depends on the smile anatomy and preferences of the individual. Some people show very few teeth when they smile. Some show only upper teeth, and others show both upper and lower teeth. Veneers are usually placed on anywhere from 6-12 visible teeth, usually only in the front, but sometimes also on the inside of the back teeth where they would be visible when the mouth is open. Each treatment plan is customized to the desires and budget of the individual.
How much does a full set of veneers cost in Tijuana, Mexico?
There’s no doubt that dental veneers and other dental procedures are much less expensive in Mexico than they are in the United States. Dentists in Mexico tend to graduate with less debt, have significantly lower insurance rates, and a lower cost of living than dentists in the U.S. Dentists in Mexico pass the same rigorous tests, are held to the same high standards, and use the same high-quality materials, but they can charge their patients much less.
In the United States, porcelain veneers cost anywhere from $800 to $3000 per tooth. A full set of 12 veneers in the US can cost approximately $9,600 to $36,000.
At BioDental Care in Tijuana, Mexico, we offer porcelain veneers for $350 per tooth! If you come to us for a full set of 12 veneers, you’ll pay $4,200. And if you want to go with just 8 veneers, you’ll pay even less.
Veneers are not the most expensive dental procedure you can get, but they’re also not the cheapest. When you think about it, though. veneers are one of the best “bang for your buck” cosmetic procedures you can get. While you have to keep going back to the hair salon and the beauty spa every few weeks, once you have porcelain veneers, they can last 10-15 years as long as you take good care of them.
