While most news coverage tends to focus on how many Mexicans enter the US, did you know that almost 500,000 Americans and Canadians are heading in the opposite direction every year to receive more affordable health and dental treatment?

Complete mouth makeover dentists in Mexico can help you to achieve a brand new, designer smile for a fraction of the prices charged by American dentists.

Want to know more? Let us enlighten you as to how you can find affordable, and most importantly safe, dental treatment at one of our quality-checked dental clinics in Mexico today.

Traveling Abroad for Your Dental Treatments

America and Canada are fortunate enough to have some of the highest living standards in the world and are, by many, considered desirable countries in which to live.

However, one thing that blights some of these so-called First-World nations is how expensive healthcare and dental treatments are. If you compare these nations to somewhere such as Mexico, you'll find that the prices are more than 60% higher in the West.

These kinds of savings can be found in dozens of other dental tourism destinations around the world, such as Hungary, Croatia, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. However, the long-haul flight involved for those based in North America (to places like Europe and Asia) means that heading south to Mexico just makes a lot more sense. 

If you want to improve your smile and light up the room but do not want to pay the extortionate prices back home, complete mouth makeover dentists in Mexico might be the alternative you have been dreaming about.

More people than ever before are visiting Mexico to take advantage of not only the low prices on offer but also the choice of clinics that follow the same international standards as dentists back home.

If you are based in California, then our range of verified Tijuana clinics are particularly easy to reach.

If you are from the northern reaches of the USA or Canada, you might be more interested in hopping on a short flight to one of Mexico's world-renowned vacation destinations (that also happen to be popular for dental tourism). These include:

These are ideal places for those who want to enjoy a sun-drenched vacation while receiving treatment for a complete mouth makeover in Mexico.

Recommended Clinics in Mexico for Mouth Makeovers

If you are more interested in finding the most highly-recommended dentists in Mexico for a mouth makeover from former patients, here is a list of clinics you can trust to do a top-notch job:

How Much Can I Save in Mexico?

A complete mouth makeover is generally comprised of a series of procedures to address the appearance and function of the teeth, as well as your overall oral health. Thus, the overall bill at the end can vary dramatically between each patient. 

That said, our clients find that they can save in the region of 60% to 75% on popular treatments, like veneers, teeth whitening and teeth replacement systems using implants. 

For example, a full arch restoration with 4 implants in Mexico starts at just USD $10,000 (CAN $12,696; UK £7,688; Euro €8,722; Aus $12,788; NZ $13,645); this is compared to the prices in the US which are, on average, around USD $26,000 (CAN $33,431; UK £19,382; Euro €23,130; Aus $33,910; NZ $34,841) for the same treatment.

What's Next?

Americans and Canadians are now visiting Mexico in their droves to save tens of thousands of dollars on dental treatments, such as implants, to transform their smiles.
