Veneers in Mexico

The Complete Guide to Veneers in Mexico


Veneers can be a game changer. A beautiful smile can give you the confidence to progress in your personal and professional life. Most importantly, veneers can improve how you feel when you look in the mirror or see photos of yourself. 

At a cost of up to $1,000-2,500 USD per tooth in the United States, many Americans choose to go south of the border for their smile. Read on to learn all you need to know about getting veneers in Mexico.

How Much Does It Cost to Get Veneers in Mexico?

The price of veneers in Mexico is typically 50-70% lower than the price of veneers in the United States. Among all of our partners in Mexico, high end zirconia veneers cost about $450 USD.  

That said, there is some variation between clinics and materials.

Cost of Veneers in Tijuana

Dental Brush offers veneers for between $420 and $450 USD per tooth. Located just across the border from the United States, many patients choose to stay in San Diego and make the commute across the border for their 2 visits. Their in-house dental lab makes dental veneers a quick and easy treatment. 

Evidentall, located close to Tijuana’s famed “La Revu” offers veneers for $400 USD. Evidentall uses an external dental lab, so the process can take 5+ days, but the clinic itself offers a personalized, boutique experience that many patients love.

Nakeji Dental Group, located just a few miles from the border, offers veneers starting at $550 USD. Their in-house lab makes the experience a breeze, and they offer a convenient shuttle service for their patients.

Cost of Veneers in Los Algodones

Sani Dental Group offers veneers in Los Algodones at a price of $350 per tooth for porcelain veneers or $450 per tooth for zirconia veneers.

Cost of Veneers in Playa del Carmen

Sani Dental Group also has a clinic in Playa del Carmen, with the same offering of $350 per tooth for porcelain and $450 per tooth for zirconia. 

Cost of Veneers in Mexico City

Finally, Ideal Dental Center in Mexico City offers dental veneers starting at $345 USD per porcelain veneer and $390 USD per zirconia veneer. The team at Ideal Dental Center is made up of graduates of the #1 dental school in Mexico, UNAM. 

How Long Does it Take to Get Veneers in Mexico?

Veneers can be done in as little as a single day in a clinic that has an in-house dental lab. However, most patients should allocate 2-3 days for the procedure. 

Veneers require 2 appointments. In the first appointment, your dentist will offer an initial consultation, take x-rays, and ensure that you are a good candidate for veneers. Next, your teeth will be prepared for the veneers. In this step, your dentist will shave off a thin portion of your natural tooth and make impressions that will be used to make your customized veneers. 

In your second appointment, your dentist will apply the veneers they have made in the lab and ensure that they fit well and are colored to match the surrounding teeth.

Is it Safe to Get Veneers in Mexico?

Safety is a common concern for patients traveling to Mexico for medical and dental care. The first concern is physical safety within Mexico and the second is the safety of going to a Mexican dentist. 

First of all, Mexico does indeed have some areas that are deemed unsafe by the US State Department. At Apollo Medical Travel, we only work with clinics located in relatively low risk areas including Baja California, Mexico City, and the Yucatan Peninsula. Moreover, we’ve done site visits to ensure that clinics are located in safe neighborhoods. 

We recommend that patients take sensible precautions such as not drinking in excess, refraining from illegal drug use, and not putting much trust in “helpful strangers” while they are traveling for medical care. With a few sensible precautions, traveling in Mexico can be very safe. Mexico is one of the United States’ top vacation destinations, and millions of people enjoy a safe and relaxing trip every year.

As for the quality of care, dentists in Mexico are highly capable of providing safe and effective treatment. Moreover, the providers listed on our site have been thoroughly vetted and have excellent reputations for quality and service.

Am I a Good Candidate For Veneers?

You must have good oral health to get veneers. Your dentist will need to treat disease and decay as needed before they can place veneers.

Patients who clench or grind their teeth may not be good candidates for veneers. Veneers are thin and delicate, and this may cause them to break. Your dentist may suggest you be fitted for a night guard.

Moreover, veneers are not a good option for people with crooked teeth. Instead, braces and whitening may be more appropriate. 

 Do Mexican Dentists Guarantee Their Work?

Different clinics offer different guarantees, but a clinic will typically offer a 1-3 year guarantee for ceramic veneers.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Getting Veneers in Mexico?

Veneers correct damaged or discolored teeth in a fast, effective procedure with long term results. However, veneers are permanent. A portion of enamel is removed from the front of the tooth and you must be fitted with veneers permanently once you’ve undergone the procedure.

Why Is It So Much Cheaper to Get Veneers in Mexico Than in the US or Canada?

The primary reason that it is cheaper to get veneers in Mexico instead of the US or Canada is the cost of labor. The cost of living is far lower in Mexico, and wages are about 1/3 that of those in the US. Meanwhile, dentists in Mexico use the same high end materials, techniques, and technology as their colleagues in the US.

What Other Options Should I Consider?

People considering veneers might also consider teeth whitening, crowns, and dental implants in order to correct discolored or damaged teeth. If you are interested in another destination, Colombia also offers high quality veneers at an affordable price.
