What are Dental Makeovers?

These refer to cosmetic dental treatments aimed at improving the appearance of one’s smile.

  • Missing teeth are replaced with dental crowns.
  • Broken, chipped teeth are masked with dental veneers.
  • Yellowed, stained teeth are corrected through dental bleaching.
  • A gummy smile can be corrected through gum contouring.
  • A gamut of other procedures may be used to correct the alignment and color of teeth to make one’s smile more pleasing.

Travel Tips

By choosing to have a complete dental makeover in Mexico, you can expect to pay only a fraction of the prices charged in the United States. Also you can look forward to quality treatments rivaling the standards of those provided in the USA and Canada.

If you have made your mind to choose the North American country for your smile makeover, the following travel information and tips should help you plan your trip better:

  • Valid passports are necessary for US and Canadian citizens to gain entry into Mexico.
  • American citizens are advised to sign up for the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) in order to receive the latest travel related information and security alerts.
  • US citizens are allowed a visa-less stay of less than 72 hours if they remain 20-30 kilometer within the border zone.
  • For travel beyond 20-30 km from the border zone, all non-Mexican citizens must have valid FMM (Forma Migratoria Multiple), FM2, FM3 or FME.
  • Border crossing timings:
    • San Ysidro, CA for Tijuana – 24 hours/day
    • Andrade, CA for Los Algodones – 6am-10pm
  • In most parts of the country, ATMs will be plentiful. However, do not expect every store or restaurant to accept credit cards.
  • The official currency here is the peso. However, most of the stores and restaurants accept US dollars here.
  • Check the weather in your destination beforehand. While many people think of the country as a land of endless sun and desert, the climate is actually quite varied, and temperatures in some parts of the country can dip below zero in the winter months.
