More Americans than ever are heading to Mexico to improve their teeth and oral health—what we are referring here to as a "smile makeover." The treatments involved can include everything from basic fillings, scaling and whitening to more complex work, such as All-on-4® treatment concept by Nobel Biocare that replaces an entire arch of teeth in one sitting. 

Whatever your circumstances, for an affordable smile makeover in Mexico, check out these highly-recommended clinics. Booking with Dental Departures gives you the chance to save around 70% compared to those ever more unaffordable prices in the US

#1 Sani Dental Group

Sani Dental Group is a collective brand composed of over 30 dental clinics across three different locations in Mexico. This branch is located in Los Algodones, the perfect place to save up to 70% on a smile makeover in Mexico. With a dedicated team of experts in every sector of dentistry, this really is a one-stop-shop of dental excellence.

If you are based in North America, particularly in California or Arizona, Sani Dental Group is easy to reach. In fact, some patients even park on the US side of the border and walk across to what has become known as "Molar City" to their appointment.
