Do they help with Insurance, This can benefit you if you have travel insurance and need help to claim on this unexpected outgoing.
SANITATION AND STERILIZATION
Do they follow correct and proper sterilization techniques, follow procedures to ensure that you as well as the doctor are safe at all times. (Ask to see their equipment, single use needles, washers, sterilization machines, Have them open everything in front of you.) Any good doctor will happily show you the high standards they work too.

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?
- Restore your smile
- Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
What Types of Dental Bridges Are Available?
There are three main types of dental bridges:
- Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
- Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
- Maryland bonded bridges (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.
What Is the Process for Getting a Dental Bridge?
During the first visit for getting a dental bridge, the abutment teeth are prepared. Preparation involves recontouring these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be placed over them. Next, impressions of the teeth are made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, pontic, and crowns will be made by a dental lab. Your dentist will make a temporary bridge to wear to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the bridge is being made.
During the second visit, your temporary bridge will be removed and the new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit of the metal framework and bite. This is dependent on each individual’s case. If the dental bridge is a fixed (permanent) bridge, your dentist may temporarily cement it in place for a couple of weeks to make sure it is fitting properly. After a couple weeks, the bridge is permanently cemented into place.
The cost of dental bridges varies depending on the type of bridge selected and the country in which the procedure is performed. Here at Sunset Dental Cancun a 3 Unit Bridge can cost as little as 1410 usd that includes all work, materials and Temporaries! Dental insurance will typically pay a percentage of the fee depending on the individual dental plan and if needed Sunset Dental Cancun can help fill out any relevant forms for you to get as much money back as possible, While providing x-rays and photos along with receipts etc.
How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?
Dental bridges can last five to 15 years and even longer. With good oral hygiene and regular checkups, it is not unusual for the life span of a fixed bridge to be over 10 years.
Will It Be Difficult to Eat With a Dental Bridge?
Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge should actually make eating easier. Until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.
Will the Dental Bridge Change How I Speak?
It can be difficult to speak clearly when teeth are missing. Wearing a dental bridge with the anterior teeth in their proper relationship will help you speak properly.
How Do I Care for a Bridge?
It is important to keep remaining teeth healthy and strong as the success of the bridge (depending on the type selected) depends on the solid foundation offered by the surrounding teeth. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease that can lead to tooth loss. Your dentist or dental hygienist can demonstrate how to properly brush and floss teeth. Keeping a regular cleaning schedule will help diagnose problems at an early stage when treatment has a better prognosis. Selecting a balanced diet for proper nutrition is also important.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much can I save having dental treatment abroad?
A: Crowns, bridges and implants can cost up to 4 times as much in the UK (and 60% Less than in the United States and Canada) compared to dental tourism destinations and there are still considerable saving even after flights and accommodation has been booked. On average by having your dentistry provided abroad you can save around 50% on like-for-like treatment compared to the UK, United States and Australia.
A: Dental tourism destinations can offer treatment at a reduced price because all the factors that contribute towards the cost you pay are significantly less than in the UK, United States and Australia. These include:
- reduced cost of labour overheads
- reduced administrative expenses
- reduced rates including, heating, lighting, water, etc
- reduced cost of laboratory bills
Q: Do you have access to the latest technology abroad?
A: Yes, the majority of dental tourism locations have dental equipment and technology that is at least on par with the UK, United States and Australia and many clinics also exceed these standards with state-of-th-art treatments on offer.
NB: Before committing to having any dentistry provided abroad it is extremely important that you carry out your own research, look at patient testimonials, speak to the practice, ask about cross infection control, sterilisation practice and get them to send you evidence of cases they have previously performed.
Q: What should I tell my dentist?
A: Discuss the option of having dentistry abroad with your dentist and see what they say. Don’t be surprised if there initial reaction is very skeptical and they advise you against it. There concern is for your dental health and they don’t want you going abroad and getting cut price, low quality dentistry. This again is why it is so important to do your research and select a high quality clinic with a good reputation.
A: The universal language of dental tourism is English but to avoid any pitfalls speak to the clinic before you travel.
Q: What happens if I have problems when I return home?
A: Whether having treatment at home or abroad there is always a chance that complications can occur. In most cases infections only occur if the patient does not follow the oral hygiene instructions and post operative care advised by the dentist.
If you have a problem it will generally not be feasible to travel back to the country where the treatment was performed immediately, so you should seek emergency care and relief of pain in your current location.
Try to get a diagnosis from the treating dentist and then you can speak the clinic that performed your treatment abroad and decide the best way to proceed with any additional work that is required.
It is advisable to check with each individual clinic before having any treatment and find out if they provide any guarantees on the work they provide or what to do if problems occur.
A: If you have a treatment plan then you can contact the clinic where the treatment will be provided and the will be able to provide you with a time scale. Most procedures can be completed within 7-10 days but if you require particularly complex work then it may take longer.
If you are on a tight schedule then it is advisable to have an examination and treatment plan done in your home country having this provided abroad will just add to length of time required to complete the treatment.
Q: How much notice do I have to give for an appointment and travel planning?
A: Quite simply the longer the better but if you need to have your treatment done quickly contact the clinical you have chosen directly to see what time scale they can work out.
Q: How do I know what I need to have done if I haven’t been to a dentist in many years?
A: There are two options here:
Options 1 : Visit a dentist in your own country and get a comprehensive examination including radiographs, written treatment plan and quote. You should be able to request copies of all this information which can then be forwarded onto the treating clinic.
Option 2: The alternative is to have your examination and treatment provided whilst abroad. You may need to factor more time for this option as it is difficult to know exactly what you will need.
Q: Will I need a passport and a visa ?
A: You will definitely need a valid passport. Depending on which country you select for your treatment will determine whether you need a visa. For further information on visa requirements please visit the countries page which you intend to travel to in our dental tourism destinations section of the website.
A: There is no reason why the sterilisation and hygiene standards shouldn’t be as good as in the UK, United States or Australia. So again it is essential that you specifically ask the clinic that will provide your treatment about there hygiene and sterilisation standards before committing to any treatment.

What we pride ourselves on here at Sunset Dental Cancun is our commitment to offering all our patients the very best treatment options. Everyone’s needs and wants are different that is for sure, but the one thing that is not is our approach for checking clinically and the diagnosis of the work needed for each and every patient.
One of the main reasons a Dental Implant can fail is an improper diagnosis and placement. Sunset Dental Cancun is renowned for the meticulous detail and planning of the work carried out being it a single implant or a full Oral rehabilitation with multiple Dental Implants.
On the initial examination we will take Panoramic x-rays and complete a comprehensive clinical check up, We will then arrange for a Scan to be taken called a Tomography, this is a detailed 3D image of the mouth. This allows the doctors to see a more complete and detailed view of the actual structure of the Bone and also permits high-resolution views of the shape and condition of the areas where the implants are to be placed.
With this scan an actual planned guide of the exact area of implant placement can be worked out with actual size, angle and amount of Implants needed, using the state of Art software simulator provided by the worlds leading Dental Implant Manufacturer and a clinical partner of Sunset Dental Cancun – Noble BioCare
As shown below from a previous patient of Sunset Dental Cancun, this software and state of the art imaging technology can allow the doctors to give you a precise and detailed plan of the work needed. See the work and measurements that are included and the detailed plans and options all to minimize the possibilities of failures and allow Dental Implants placed by Sunset Dental Cancun and their specialists to come with the very best possible outcomes and guarantees, along with the peace of mind this type of planning and preparation gives to each and every patient it also continues to allow us to work on numerous different types of cases from the simple to the complex and often difficult cases.
This detailed plan can also be presented to a patient who sends a copy of a Tomography scan to us here at the clinic and without having to travel will be given a breakdown of treatments costs and expected outcomes: (This comes at an additional cost)
We do not believe that there are many Dental Clinics in Cancun that can offer the Worlds number one Dental Implant brand with Such detailed pre treatment case breakdowns along with at least 2 Implant doctors working on each case. With a support network of some of the Leading Dental Implant specialists and resources in Mexico. All using the very latest techniques and ongoing education to offer a more affordable solution to a Dental Treatment that deserves not only respect but a continued commitment to improving, educating and teaching.
The work with Dental Implants here at Sunset Dental Cancun comes with a 12 month rework guarantee, if they fail we will redo completely free of Charge! (Subject to doctors consultation findings and patients agreement to follow instructions)
Noble BioCare are known for IMPLANTS FOR LIFE as the world’s leader and innovator in the field of Dental Implants they commit to the quality and durability of their products.
Healing after the placement of a Dental Implant is just as important as the placement and we now offer a revolutionary treatment system called ENDORET from BIOTECHNOLOGY INSTITUTE
Endoret™ was initially developed to be applied in oral and maxillofacial surgery, becoming an international reference and revolutionising the sector..
The advantages that this technology brings to this field of medicine are the following:
· It stimulates the healing of wounds..
· It improves the osseointegration of soft tissues.
· It accelerates the osseointegration of the implant by creating a biologically active nano-membrane on the titanium surfaces.
· It provides an autologous clot and a biocompatible fibrin membrane to fill in and seal defects which, in addition, reduces inflammation.
· Its preparation and handling are simple, reducing the risk of infection or any other post-op complication.
· It offers more biosafety and predictability for dental implants.
Endoret™ technology can be used in daily clinical practice in:
· Post-extraction areas
· Regeneration around implants
· Intraosseous defects
· Sinus elevations
· Crestal expansion
· Vertical Growth
· Treatment of periodontal defects
The results show high levels, unheard of until now, of effectiveness, safety and predictability in oral surgery and oral implantology.
Endoret™ is used in oral surgery to promote bone and adjacent soft tissue regeneration in post-extraction defects. The method consists of filling and sealing the post-extraction defects with the standard biological matrix and with autologous fibrin.
The wetting of the implant surfaces with non-activated Endoret™ creates a much more favourable biological environment for osseointegration, as a protein interface is achieved that favours cell migration over the new fibrin bridges created between the osseous wall and the implant surface.
If you research the costs of Dental Implants in Mexico there can sometimes be a considerable difference and this can sometimes be a big factor for patients looking for more economical options- But remember Noble Bio Care is such an internationally renowned make that you are not committed to returning to a specific clinic to have the second stage completed (most people do because of the savings) it is not a problem, if for some reason a return trip was not possible a Product Passport from Noble Bio Care is given detailing the type, size and placement area of the implants placed and can be given to any experienced and qualified Dental Implant specialist who can complete and order any piece necessary from Noble Bio Care. If you receive a Dental Implant from a lesser known Implant supplier you may have difficulty trying to find someone to complete the second stage other that the original clinic who placed them.
Peace of Mind is guaranteed here at Sunset Dental Cancun – We want to make a positive Impact in the lives of all our patients and with our Promise and commitment to give the very best at a more affordable price, Our doors are always open to help!

MOST IMPORTANTLY: HAVE FUN BE SAFE AND ENJOY THE PARADISE THAT IS CANCUN SENSIBLY
ALL WHITE IS NOT ALWAYS ALL RIGHT! AFFORDABLE DENTISTRY IN CANCUN
SEEK THE BEST STANDARDS OF CARE – TRAVEL - PAY LESS - ENJOY THE STAY – AND MORE IMPORTANTLY THE RESULTS!
What we here at Sunset Dental Cancun really want to show people is that it is not just a White Smile that makes and constitutes good dentistry!
Far from it, having a Laboratory make Bright White Crowns, Veneers etc is the easy part. What the difference is the pre planning, Clinical consultations, Correct diagnosis and evaluation of the Oral health of each and every patient. What is the current periodontal situation? what is the likely need for root Canal Therapies? what type of bite the patient has? is the patient aware of the type of work and difference in the work done to the actual tooth?
Putting a White Crown or Veneer over an ill prepared and poorly diagnosed tooth is definitely not the correct thing to do. What lies beneath the Crown or Veneer is just as if not more important.
- Has the tooth been prepared correctly?
- Is the Crown made of a sufficiently high quality material ?
- Is it seated properly? (does it fit)
- Has it been sealed correctly? (cemented)
- Are the gums inflamed or sore?
- Is the bite checked, is it to high or too low?
- Did the dentist try proofing the Crowns before applying the porcelain or Metal and Porcelain or did they just put the finished Crown/Veneer on and tweak it here and there to get the fit right?
There is an increase in the popularity and attractive options of Dental work abroad and this has enabled thousands of people to realistically afford much-needed treatments and even cosmetic procedures at such reduced costs it is astounding. But the real fact is that research, and arming yourself with the basic information on the treatments you are interested in is just as important as the destination you choose. That is the aim of Dental Tourism, Dental Vacations, and all reputable dentists in Cancun.
CHECK YOUR OPTIONS- At home with your current dentist, get their recommendations and what they believe is the best course of action to you.
CHOOSE A LOCATION- This is also an important part: Location is shown to help with Recuperation. Do you want beach breaks or City breaks, calm and relaxing or busy and active remember this can also be a much-needed vacation.
RESEARCH THE DOCTORS AND CLINICS- Look on-line for clinics specializing in the treatments you need or are interested in, request information from as many as you want, ask questions, speak to staff and doctors.
TAKE ADVANTAGE- Take advantage of the Free consultations clinics offer, go for more than one. This is the sure-fire way to really get to know a doctor, clinic, environment and all round feel of a place you will be trusting to work and improve your health. If it’s rushed, or staff unfriendly, stressed even lack of communication give a points systems and see the difference.
ASK TO CONTACT PREVIOUS PATIENTS- How important is it to speak to previous patients? Extremely as this is a genuine personal reference and a great way of getting a first hand unbiased insight into what to expect.
COSTS- Last and but never least and in a lot of cases the patients biggest factor, costs! What should be kept in mind is the difference between AFFORDABLE and CHEAP! If you are investing your time, money, health and appearance choose wisely.
We think that this is a great idea, below is a chart and when going for more than one consultation, use this to help remind yourself of where you have been and what you have been offered Mark each one out of 1 to 5 – 5 being the best.
And as you can see on this mock-up chart CLINIC D came out overall so would be the sensible choice for the patient
We hope this helped and if you would like more information on how Sunset Dental Cancun could help you receive Affordable Long lasting Dental Solutions then simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0052 998 1768084
