Veneers in Mexico Ultimate Guide with Updated Prices & General Information About The Process.


First, you will need to book your appointment at Ocean Dental Cancunfor the date of your preference. After arriving to Cancun, Mexico, on the very first day your dental examination will be taking place, where you will need to tell our dentists what are your expectations about the procedure:

  • What result are you trying to achieve?
  • What is it exactly that you don’t like about of your natural teeth?
  • What is your budget to undergo the veneer procedure?

Once our dentists conclude with the dental examination, they can talk you through the various treatment options that are suitable for your teeth. Assuming you are suitable for veneers, the dentist will need to identify any issues which need to be addressed before the veneers can be prepared.

What makes dental technicians (lab) a fundamental part of the veneers process?

• Their experience and expertise- specifically in working with the type of veneer you have requested.

• The quality of communication with the dentist to get the shade right and incorporate any special considerations.

• The quality of the veneer construction itself. This includes the margins against the tooth and contact points with other veneers or natural teeth.

• The ability to match the shade to your existing teeth or create the natural color requested by you and the dentist. This is where art meets science!


As the patient, you will have to be actively involved in the smile design process communicating your preferences for the color, shape, length, and width of the veneers. This will help ensure you are happy with the result.

There are a few ways the dentist can give you an idea of how things will look:

  • A Diagnostic Wax Up
  • White Filling Material
  • Temporary Veneers
  • Computer Imaging
  • Smile Design Software
  • Teeth Veneer Simulation



Composite veneers can be made at the time of your appointment while your teeth are being prepared for the veneers. Composite resin veneers or teeth bondings are cheaper, quicker, and are a less invasive way to restore and correct more minor cosmetic problems.


Porcelain veneers are prepared at your appointment but created outside your mouth by a dental technician. Taking usually from two to three visits on average. They have better aesthetics and are more appropriate for discoloration, chipping, spaced, and uneven or slightly misaligned teeth.


Unlike porcelain or composite, lumineers are recommended for slightly discolored teeth or stained teeth. Lumineers (also known as no-prep veneers) are ultra-thin veneers that require little to no teeth preparation and the complete placement of it could take from 2 to 4 hours per tooth.



In case you are wondering how much do veneers cost in Mexico, the price at Ocean Dental Cancun goes from 250 USD for composite veneers, to 450 USD for porcelain veneers and lumineers.

Best Veneers Material

Porcelain veneers are the most useful treatment in cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve the look of your smile. They also have their place in general restorative dentistry for repairing fractured or unaesthetic teeth. As with all treatments, there are advantages and disadvantages you should be aware of when considering your option.

Cheaper Prices for Cancun Veneers

By coming to Mexico for dental veneers you can save up to 70% in prices, as the US or Canada prices tend to be outrageous.

Natural Looking Teeth Results

Porcelain veneers provide a very natural tooth appearance. Being very thin and translucent.

Long-Lasting Solution

Porcelain veneers can be expected to give 10 -15 years of service.

Match Existing Teeth

The color of the porcelain veneer can be made to match your natural teeth very closely. In most cases, it is not necessary to veneer all your teeth as part of a Hollywood smile makeover unless that is what you want.

Shorter Dental Work Timeframes

It’s normally just two or three appointments thanks to our CAD/CAM technology and our In-house dental laboratory.

That said, multiple veneers can produce very dramatic and almost instant improvements in your smile as the before and after photos clearly demonstrate.

Correct Multiple Flaws

Getting porcelain veneers improves the shape, color, and position all at once. Therefore if you have a range of cosmetic flaws such as spaces, discoloration, staining, chipped or fractured teeth, these can all be dealt with at the same time.

Conservative (Tooth Shaping)

This type of veneer requires the removal of less tooth structure than a full crown- providing a conservative alternative. Because of this, they are much less likely to affect the nerve inside the tooth than a porcelain crown.

Involved In a Smile Makeover

A combined approach using other treatments (such as crowns, bridges, dental implants, orthodontics, teeth whitening, and tooth bonding to achieve a smile makeover) may be needed depending on the situation.

Little Recovery Time

After your veneers have been placed and the anesthetic has worn off (if it was needed) you are pretty much good to go.

Stain Resistant

Prevents classic stains of coffee, tea, smoking, and soft drinks.

Strong Functional Teeth

Porcelain veneers help restore the strength of fractured or decayed teeth. Remember that porcelain veneers are not as strong as untouched natural teeth and as such need to be treated with extra care.

No Additional Maintenance

You will only need your common oral health routine and regular checkups with a dentist.

Completely Customized For You

The shape, color, and size of the veneers can be chosen within the limits of your mouth to give you the personal smile that you have always wanted.

Speaking of the disadvantages of getting vaneers:

Veneers are not a good option for people with teeth grinding or clenching. If vaneers break the whole piece will need to be restored. And, the front surface of your teeth will need to be filed down removing some of the enamel to make way for the veneer.


A composite veneer or tooth bonding would probably look good for 5-7 years but will start to lose the color and begin to fail right after that time. Porcelain Veneers on the other hand tend to last longer and keep their looks a little better, sometimes 10-15 years would be the aim. It all depends on the appropriate care you give them.


How Much Does a Full Smile Makeover Cost in Mexico?

The price for full-mouth veneers (also known as a full smile makeover) in Mexico, starts at 5,000 USD and goes as high as 9,000 USD. This depends on the number of veneers you need for your smile makeover and the material you choose (composite, porcelain, or lumineers).

    There is a little bit of a misconception that porcelain veneers can be used for every situation to fix your teeth. Some problems just aren’t suitable for dental veneers or would be better treated by other means.

    Problems That Can Be Corrected With Veneers:

    The sorts of problems that may be corrected by veneers include:

    • Irregular Teeth Size
    • Chipped or Fractured Teeth
    • Uneven Teeth (Tooth Alignment)
    • Diastomers (Space Between Your Teeth)
    • Failed Fillings
    • Aging (Have a Youthful Appearance)
    • Worn Enamel Edge
    • Stained and Discolored Teeth

    At Ocean Dental, in addition to having the best costs of veneers in Mexico. We help you to orientate yourself about getting veneers in Cancun, Mexico with general information, like the following:

    Good Dental Health

    If you have untreated severe conditions like active gum disease, gingivitis, or multiple areas of decay these must be treated before veneers can even be considered.

    Have Realistic Expectations

    You need to fully comprehend what is the procedure, how much do veneers cost in Mexico, and the lifetime each type of veneer has, since each material has different durability.

    Awareness of all the Options

    Majorly crooked teeth or teeth that are severely out of position generally are not suitable for veneers and more extensive treatment is likely to be required. It all depends on your desired outcome.



    First off, arriving at our dental clinic in Cancun we will start with the dental examination which consists of an X-Ray, 3D CBCT & Intraoral scanning, and taking the bite impressions at our In-house Dental Laboratory. After that:

    1st Visit

    Smile Design

    We will scan your bit impression and send it to our smile design software so we can start modeling your new smile with the specifications you asked for (tooth color and shape).

    Veneers Preparation

    After the smile design process is done, veneers will be sent to be printed in a 3D printer, and our technicians will start crafting the veneers by milling and shaping it.

    Teeth Preparation

    This part of the veneer process requires removing little to no enamel, around 0.3 to 0.6 mm of enamel. This is equal to the thickness of the veneer that will is placed above the tooth surface.

    Temporary Veneers

    The need for temporary veneers depends on different things:

    • Your discomfort with your teeth’ appearance after the enamel removal.

    • Or if you undergo a treatment such as no-prep veneers or same-day veneers (composite veneers).

    2nd Visit


    If an anesthetic was required for the first appointment, it is likely to be required again. Once this has taken effect, the temporaries need to be removed, hopefully with a simple flick or a minor bit of drilling.

    Placing Permanent Veneers

    Will need to try in the veneers for fit and color and make sure you are happy. Because they are only thin pieces of porcelain, some color comes from the underlying tooth and the cement used to stick them in.

    Most kits these days come with ‘try-in’ pastes of various shades to allow the dentist to match the color a little more precisely and test which is the most appropriate shade of cement.

    Bonding Veneers

    The dentist will need to prepare both the surfaces of your teeth and the inside of the veneers to get the best possible bond.


    Veneers vs
    Teeth Whitening

    Not all color issues can be solved with whitening, but they can certainly be helped. Even severely ‘tetracycline-stained teeth can be greatly improved with a bit of dedication over a number of months.

    Although teeth whitening will not help to correct other problems besides teeth color. Veneers in the other hand, are great to achieve the teeth color exactly the way you want it, plus all the other problems veneers help correcting.

    Veneers vs

    Dental Crowns require more tooth shaping than veneers, since space must be made for the crown to sit completely over the top of the tooth, covering both back and front of the tooth. Not just to attach it to the front like veneers.

    If teeth are heavily damaged or decayed, crowns become a good way of actually strengthening the teeth. If not, veneers are still the best option to restore your teeth without the need of having an excessive tooth shaping.

    Veneers vs

    In case you need to align your teeth, tooth straighteners such as braces, Invisalign, or our In-House clear aligners will be the best option. Porcelain veneers can correct slightly misaligned teeth or uneven teeth, but dental veneers cannot correct facial asymmetry or put teeth back in their correct position.

    Orthodontics however can only change the position and not the color or the shape of the teeth as veneers can do.



    If having cosmetic treatment will make a big difference in your life. And, assuming you are a suitable case for veneers (you have good oral health, awareness of all options, and any of the problems veneers can correct) then… Congratulations! Now all you need is to book your appointment at Ocean Dental Cancun.

    The most ideal candidates have healthy teeth and gums and are looking to improve the appearance of their smiles. Yet, obviously the more discolored, out of position, and broken down a set of teeth are- the greater need to have the cosmetic treatment and the more dramatic the smile makeover will be.


    With more than 20 years of actively focusing on dental tourism, thousands of people from the US and Canada have chosen us to get dental veneers. See some of our patient Hollywood smile makeover results.

    • What About The Aftercare of My Porcelain Veneers?

      Do not eat crunchy, hard things, bite hard, eat things with dyes, and do not drink carbonated beverages.

      Right after getting the final veneer placement done, our dentists will give you some instructions and recommendations for the aftercare. Following these good habits will help to prolong the life of your veneers and your smile for as long as possible.

    • Will I Get Pain After The Veneers?

      Not really. Sometimes you may experience a bit of soreness from around the gum where the margins have been polished, or perhaps a little bit of sensitivity but everything should be back to normal within a couple of days.

    • What Precautions Should I Take In The Future?

      • Get a night splint if you are a teeth grinder. This will avoid you damaging your veneers while you sleep.
      •Cut up hard foods such as apples and break off chocolate bars; veneers are not as strong as your natural teeth and you need to take a bit of extra care with them.
      • Be careful with bones, pips seeds, and nuts.
      • Do not use your teeth to open anything such as packets or beer bottles.• Avoid biting your fingernails and chewing on hard objects such as pencils or ice.
      • Avoid activities such as contact sports, in which your veneers and teeth could be damaged.

    • Will I Feel Comfortable With My Veneers After the Procedure?

      If after the anesthetic has worn off, it still feels high and doesn’t settle down after a few days, pop back to see your dentist and they will polish it down to the correct level.

      It is also possible when the anesthetic has worn off, that the veneers can feel a little rough in places after bonding. Often this smooth’s down naturally on its own after a couple of days of normal eating and chewing. If it continues to be a problem, you will need a regular check-up with your dentist.

    • What About Veneers Maintenance?

      • Good Dental Hygiene
      After your veneers have been placed, it is even more important you maintain good oral habits- brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once in the evening. This will help to avoid tooth decay and gum disease which could compromise the look of your new veneers.

      • Good Diet
      It is recommended not to drink so much tea, coffee, red wine, or colas and for all you smokers out there- I couldn’t think of a more perfect time to make a fresh start and kick the habit.
      Teeth without veneers are even more susceptible to staining, so by doing this you help to keep everything nicely blended in.

      • Regular Check-ups
      It is totally recommended to visit the dentist twice or thrice a year for regular check-ups. This way any early signs of problems can be dealt with before more serious damage is done.
