Evidentall, located close to Tijuana’s famed “La Revu” offers zirconia 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.

How Long Does it Take to Get Veneers in Tijuana?

Composite Veneers can be done in as little as a single visit at a clinic in Tijuana. However, ceramic veneers can take more time as they are custom made in a milling machine for each individual tooth. In a clinic that has an in-house dental lab, patients should allocate 2-3 days for the procedure. For clinics using an external lab, the process can take 5-7 days.

Get a Free Quote

The first step to getting veneers in Tijuana is getting a free quote from a dentist. You will want to have a good idea of what your procedure will cost, how long it will take and what kind of results you can expect.

In this stage you should get quotes from several dentists you feel comfortable with and see the portfolios and reviews of previous patients. 

Make an Appointment

Once you’ve found a dentist you want to do your veneers, you will need to make an appointment. It is best to make an appointment at least 2 weeks before your visit.

Travel to Tijuana

Most people who get veneers in Tijuana travel by car into the city or cross on foot at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Tijuana is within a reasonable drive of San Diego, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tucson, and Las Vegas.

A pro tip for those flying in from the United States is to fly into San Diego’s Airport and take public transportation to the border. This is almost always less expensive than an international flight to Tijuana.

Travelers entering Tijuana will need a passport or an enhanced drivers license. Crossing the border with a birth certificate and a driver’s license, as has been allowed in years past, may result in being denied entry when going into Mexico or in delays when re-entering the United States. 

Your Appointments for Veneers in Tijuana

Ceramic 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, which will typically be 2-3 days later, 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.

During this time, most patients opt to stay at a hotel close to the Paseo de los Heroes in the Zona Rio, a section of the city that is safe and popular among international visitors. Other patients opt to stay in San Diego and commute across the border for their appointments. 

For those getting composite veneers, the procedure can be completed in as little as a single visit. 

Is it Safe to Get Veneers in Tijuana?

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

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 Tijuana can be very safe. The border crossing between Tijuana and San Diego, the San Ysidro Port of Entry, is the busiest border crossing n the world and millions of Americans enjoy  safe and fun trip to Tijuana every year.  is one of the United States’ top vacation destinations, and millions of people enjoy a safe and relaxing trip every year.

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 Dentists in Tijuana Guarantee Their Work on Veneers?

Different clinics offer different guarantees, but a clinic will typically offer a 1-3 year guarantee for ceramic veneers. Since veneers are delicate, your dentist may recommend that you be fitted for a night guard in order to protect your investment in your smile. A night guard will protect your veneers from chipping if you grind your teeth in your sleep.

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

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.

Traveling to Tijuana for your veneers will get you the same high quality care you could expect back home at a much more affordable price. Many patients use their savings to invest in higher quality materials than they would otherwise get back home or on enjoying a little vacation while they are abroad. 

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

The primary reason that it is cheaper to get veneers in Tijuana 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 Tijuana 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, Los Algodones, Mexico City, and Playa del Carmen also offer high quality veneers at an affordable price.
