If you’ve ever considered getting porcelain veneers, Mexico is the place to do it! Veneers are thin pieces or porcelain that adhere to your teeth permanently making them look whiter and even.
They don’t always have to be porcelain though, there are composite veneers too – your dentist can tell you which type is best for you by taking into account many factors such as your lifestyle, needs, and expectations.
What are veneers for?
They are the most effective way of fixing all kinds of flaws such as discoloration, chips, stains, misalignments, gaps and more. Years of drinking tea, coffee, and wine, or smoking can leave one with a set of teeth so stained that not even a whitening can fix. However, that damage is easily repaired with veneers that can last up to a decade.
Also, nail-biting and teeth grinding habits can lead to worn and crooked teeth that make chewing a whole lot more difficult. That can be fixed within a couple of dentist appointments with porcelain veneers. Nevertheless, one must try to avoid said habits in other to preserve the veneers for as long as possible.
This procedure is the simplest way of fixing genetical imperfections because it takes weeks to do so instead of months, which is the case with dental implants. Making teeth even and filling in gaps are another two amazing functions that veneers have. They come along with functional benefits like avoiding gum diseases and protecting teeth from bacteria.
So now you know that transforming your smile is quick and accessible when choosing to get veneers in Mexico but it is not just for the looks, it also brings many more benefits that as little as they may seem will make your everyday life much easier.
When should I get veneers in Mexico?
Anytime is great for scheduling a dental vacation to this country but you need to decide on a specific city before moving on to that final step. As you may know, Cancun is one of the best options because it has direct, cheap flights most of the time (except during spring break and the summer months). It is also home to some of the best dentists in all Latin America and they use the same materials as they would in the United States and Canada.
Assuming that you do choose this world-class destination, the best time for getting veneers should be from August to February when it is the offseason and most airlines and hotels offer discounts or deals. Take on account that even when adding the hotel and plane expenses, getting veneers in Mexico is still a lot cheaper than in its northern neighbors.
The whole process lasts about a week in which first, you will get a part of your teeth’s surface scrapped, then the cosmetic dentist will take an impression and make sure that the veneers fit you perfectly, and finally, the porcelain pieces will merge with your teeth to create a beautiful, even smile.
After your appointments, you can enjoy the fact that you’re in a tropical paradise and go for a swim in the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea, dance your heart out in a world-famous night club, try the delicious food and drinks – just try to avoid red wine – and many more activities!
