Dentures in Costa Rica

The Ultimate Guide to Dentures in Costa Rica

Last fact-checked 16 February 2020

Wouldn't you rather have a holiday and a set of new dentures for the price your dentist is quoting you at home? Now you can by getting your dentures in Costa Rica. Book an appointment with Dental Departures and get reliable, quality dental care at the guaranteed best prices available. 

Patients traveling to Costa Rica for their dentures will save a substantial amount, but will also find that it is a terrific country for getting out-and-about. Activities range from the adrenaline-fueled to the sedate, and you are sure to find something that suits your tastes and capabilities.

Getting close to nature is one of Costa Rica’s many draws, with treetop canopy tours proving particularly popular. However, the beauty of these tours is that they are available for all-comers. If you don’t fancy hurtling through the canopies on a zip-wire, there are ski-lift style chairs that will transport you gently through the trees at a pace slow enough to take in the glorious surroundings.

With plenty of time on your hands to discover this captivating country while you are waiting for lab work to be completed on your dentures, you will find plenty to entertain and enthrall you. 

Why Have Dentures in Costa Rica?

Despite advances in dental care missing teeth are still a common dental problem. Obviously, as we are living longer our teeth have to last longer than they ever did before, which means, eventually, we may lose a few along the way. This may be compounded by our predilection for all things sweet, as well as tooth loss from trauma and accidents.  

Coping with missing teeth is embarrassing and can affect your confidence immeasurably. Dentures are not cheap at home, but it is important to get dentures that are of a high-quality and fit well. Unfortunately, our budget may not necessarily extend to accommodate our desires.  

Costa Rica dentists are able to offer you high-quality dentures for considerably less than your dentist at home. While dentures in Costa Rica cost less than they do at home, this does not mean they are of inferior quality. In fact, it is far more likely that you will be able to afford dentures made of higher-grade materials in Costa Rica, meaning your dentures will not only look better but last for longer too. Whether you are new to dentures or simply replacing your old set, Costa Rica is a good option for dental tourists.

Booking through Dental Departures gives you peace-of-mind that the quality of your dental care is reliable. We make it our business to pre-screen every facility that we partner with. You can check our verified clinics knowing that we have carried out onsite visits, confirmed dentist qualifications and their professional memberships as well as getting together patient reviews. Our listings also include clinic photos, prices, location maps and much more—so you can make your own informed choice on what dental provider suits your needs. Below are some of the popular clinics in Costa Rica where you can get your dentures:

• Costa Rica All on Four
Prisma Dental
Clinica Mario Garita – The Dental Experience

How Long Do Dentures Take in Costa Rica?

If you have recently had extractions or surgery you will have to wait until your gums have healed before permanent dentures are fitted. This doesn’t mean you will have no teeth–you will be fitted with a ‘healing denture’ in the meantime. It is a temporary measure, and many people have worn them for years before returning for their permanents.

Dentures with Porcelain Teeth vs Dentures with Acrylic Teeth

Dentures are available if you have lost all your teeth (full dentures), or just some of them (partial dentures). They come in a choice of materials, of which your dentist will discuss the suitability to your particular circumstances.

Porcelain dentures have a more natural appearance than acrylic and are much more durable and longlasting. However, they are heavier than acrylic and may place more stress on your bones and gums. They are also more expensive than acrylic. Some patients find acrylic dentures much more comfortable to wear, simply because they are lighter.
