Their life-span is between five and seven years.

Tijuana, Mexico is a modern, cosmopolitan city with a vibrant culture. Its position on the US-Mexican border adjacent to San Diego has ensured that tourists from the US have been coming here for years. While there has always been a transient flow of visitors to Tijuana, it is home to many who have migrated her permanently - Mexicans from other parts of the county, North Americans, South Americans, native Indians and Asians. This mix of different cultures gives Tijuana an air of sophistication, which has encouraged national and international businesses to establish bases here, fuelling a growing middle- class with disposable income.
Tijuana has been a popular place for US citizens to visit for its low-cost shopping and restaurants. It is particularly easy to get here too from the US - you can walk across the border from San Diego in a matter of minutes. Although the main language is Spanish, English is widely spoken, especially in the main tourist areas, such as Avenida Revolución. Recent years have seen a surge in dental tourists, flocking to the inexpensive dental clinics offering specialty dental treatments, such as dental veneers, at considerably cheaper prices than the US or Canada.
Direct international flights come into Aeropuerto Internacional Abelardo L Rod ríguez just East of Downtown Tijuana, and San Diego Airport, a half hour drive away. Accommodation is plentiful and suits all budgets, whether you stay in Tijuana, or in San Diego. The San Ysidro Border border crossing is open 24 hours and is reasonably quick, although during holiday times it can get busy. There is an alternative at theMesa de Otay crossing, just 8km east of San Ysidro.
Dental Clinics here offer the same standard of care and treatment as the US and Canada. Dentists are highly trained, and facilities are state-of-the-art.
Treatment with Dental Veneers is one of the easiest ways to transform a smile. Damaged, stained and crooked teeth can be transformed into a Hollywood smile, by bonding wafer-thin laminates of either ceramic, porcelain or composite bonding material to the front of the existing teeth.
Dental Veneer treatment in Tijuana usually takes two visits.
An initial consultation with your dentist decides on whether dental veneers will be suitable for you. If it is yes, then the exciting work begins by choosing the ideal color and shape of your new smile. Your dentist will then prepare your teeth for the new dental veneers. This involves shaving a thin layer from the front of your teeth, so that the veneers will sit on top. At this time impressions of your teeth will also be taken by the dentist and sent to the laboratory so that they can custom-craft the veneers to the impressions. This may take a few days, or a few weeks. In the meantime, your dentist will fit temporary veneers.
On your next visit, the temporary veneers will be removed and the new, permanent veneers will be fixed. This is done by a bonding process which uses a light-activated adhesive to bond the veneers to the existing teeth. After the bonding process is finished, your dentist will clean your teeth thoroughly to complete the procedure.
Tijuana is an exciting, lively city and is transforming itself into a very desirable place to live. Its close proximity to the US border should make it one of your top considerations for dental veneer treatment for value, convenience and quality.
