    I have had veneers for 20 years and have been very cautious with how dentists treat them. I have been going to the same dentist for over 12 years and until recently, felt like I was given good care. I also have been watching my tooth margins get darker and darker. They never took the time to really clean the margins.
    I traveled from the USA in early 2017 with a friend who was having extensive dental work done at DentaVac, Escazu, Costa Rica. I decided to also have a check up and cleaning. We returned in late 2017 to complete my friend's procedure, and I had another check up and cleaning. I never thought my teeth could be white, nor the margins. The wonderful techitian took her time, gave attention to my teeth. When she was finished, she gave me a mirror to view my teeth and I cried because my teeth were white and the margins were also white! I have so much grattitude for her and all of the staff at DentaVac. Their professionalism,knowledge, and authentic care and concern they have for each patient is unmatched. It will be worth it to make this office your dental office. Thank you all so much! :-)
