Yucatan Dental provides a host of dental services, including Aesthetic and Prosthetic dentistry, Implantology, Orthodontics and integrated dental disciplines with a high standard of care and the assistance of qualified specialists.

We use the Zoom2 bleaching system, the best cosmetic whitening system available in the world (www.zoomnow.com). We use dental software to track our patient records, and digital X-Ray technology. We use technology from Nobel Biocare and Ivoclar Vivodent for prostheses. For dental implants, we use products from Nobel Biocare, 3i and Straumann.

The following are a list of some of the services that we provide and approximate prices for those services. Some prices obviously are dependent upon the situation and the patient. Prices are in US Dollars (you can find the current exchange rate to pesos by clicking here).

Procedures

Composites (fillings)
Description: Instead of using metals or silver-mercury alloys, we use a composite matrix with a nonmetric ceramic filling. This results in a material that has the strength and aesthetic appearance similar to natural teeth. Also, the material is biologically neutral and compatible with the natural tooth structure.
Cost: 1 surface: $60 USD per unit. 2 or more surfaces: $70 USD per unit
Typical Duration: 1 day if no more than 3 or 4 standard fillings

Inlays/Onlays
Description: Solid ceramic fillings for big cavities. When a cavity is too large for the maximal safe performance of a composite, it is necessary to use a stronger material for the filling. This filling is created by a CAD/CAM robotic and software system which is able to achieve an excellent aesthetic and seal on the existing tooth structure.
Cost: $320 USD
Typical Duration: 1 day or more than 3 or 4 standard fillings

Crowns: Porcelain Fused to Metal
Description:Crowns with a thin metallic structure and a porcelain covering. These are standard crowns, and are both effective and long-lasting. They are the standard choice for back teeth, bridges and some anterior teeth. Good aesthetic.
Cost: $280 USD per unit (includes a temporary crown and any required X-rays)
Typical Duration: 3-8 days, divided in two or more visits depending on the number of crowns. If many crowns are needed, the time elapsed can be considerable.

Crowns: E-max Full Ceramic Jacket
Description: Crowns with no metal inside. These are a solid piece of biologically neutral material that are strong and natural-looking. They are an excellent choice for any anterior or posterior single tooth. These crowns are created by a CAD/CAM robotic and software system, and are made from a Lithium Disulfate solid block. The most remarkable aspect of these crowns are the excellent aesthetic, and the neutral reaction from the body.
Cost: $360 USD per unit. (includes a temporary crown and any required X-rays)
Typical Duration: 3-6 days, divided in two or more visits depending on the number of crowns. If many crowns are needed, the time elapsed can be considerable.

Crowns: Zirconia
Description: Non metallic crowns with Zirconia internal structure and a porcelain covering. Zirconia is the strongest and most translucent structure for crowns and bridges. It is stronger than steel. A crown made of Zirconia will avoid the use of metals and provide an extremely natural-looking tooth with exceptional strength. The Zirconia structure is created by a CAD/CAM robotic and software system, which allows us to achieve a perfect fit and seal on the tooth core.
Cost: $380 USD per unit. (includes a temporary crown and any required X-rays)
Typical Duration: 3-6 days, divided in two or more visits depending on the number of crowns. If many crowns are needed, the time elapsed can be considerable.

veneers done by dentist in Merida Yucatan Mexico

Laminated Veneers
Description: Full Ceramic veneers provide extraordinary aesthetic appearance with minimal invasion into the tooth structure. This is the best option when aesthetics are the only concern and there is no major structural damage to the teeth and no malfunction of the masticatory system.
Cost: $360 USD per unit (includes a temporary crown and any required X-rays)
Typical Duration: 3-8 days divided in two or more visits depending on the number of veneers.

Bridges: Porcelain Fused to Metal (fixed)
Description: Fixed bridges. These appliances are fixed prostheses made of a metallic internal structure, with porcelain coverings to cover short edentulous areas (areas without teeth). The two parts of a bridge are the "pillars" and the "pontics". The pillars are the existing teeth to which the bridge is fixed. The pontics are the "fake teeth" that cover the edentulous area. NOTE: One bridge can consist of three or more pontics, depending on the extension of the edentulous area and the retention and support requirements of the pillars. Each pillar and pontic is considered one unit each. In some circumstances, osteintegrated titanium implants can be substituted for fixed bridges, avoiding the need for pillar preparation and crowning.
Cost: $280 USD per unit.
Typical Duration: 5-10 days divided in two or more visits depending on the number of units.

Bridges: Full Zirconia (Fixed)
Description: Non-metallic fixed bridges with Zirconia internal structure. Zirconia is the strongest and most translucent structure for crowns and bridges; it is stronger than steel. Using Zirconia avoids the use of metals and provides natural-looking and exceptionally strong bridges. The Zirconia structure is created by a CAD/CAM robotic and software system, which allows us to achieve a perfect fit and seal on the tooth core. NOTE: One bridge can consist of three or more pontics, depending on the extension of the edentulous area and the retention and support requirements of the pillars. Each pillar and pontic is considered one unit each. In some circumstances, osteintegrated titanium implants can be substituted for fixed bridges, avoiding the need for pillar preparation and crowning.
Cost: $390 USD per unit. Units are the pillars and pontics of lost teeth. One bridge can consist of three or more units depending on the extension on the edentulous area and the requirments of retention and support from the pillars.
Typical Duration: 6-14 days divided in two or more visits depending on the number of units.

Root Canal
Cost: $200 USD per unit
Typical Duration: 2 hours if tooth is not infected. Can be up to 6 days divided into two appointments if there is an active infection. If the tooth is infected, medication has to be applied "in situ" (inside the canal) to exterminate bacterial activity. This is the time it takes to obtain an adequate sterile environment. Oral or IM Antibiotics help a lot in this situation but cannot get inside the canal. Therefore, the internal canal medication is mandatory.

Post and Buildup core
Description: Almost every tooth that requires a root canal also requires a post and buildup core to retain the crown. Posts are carbon fiber or preformed fiberglass, and core build ups are made from composite.
Cost: $90 USD. For every additional fiberglass or carbon fiber post if required in the same tooth, an additional charge of $20 USD each.
Typical Duration: 45 minutes

Cleaning
Description: Very conscientious cleaning that involves ultrasonic and manual scaling.
Cost: $50 USD.
Typical Duration: 50-60 minutes

Deep Scaling
Description: Root planing and cleaning with the elimination of residuals and damaged tissue from pockets. This procedure is performed in order to obtain a new union between the gum and the root surface, and to close or control the growing of pockets. This procedure is used for medium-depth pockets.
Cost: $160 USD per quadrant
Notes: For Periodontal problems. Requires novocaine.
Typical Duration: 1 hour per quadrant

Periodontal Surgery
Description: Surgical root planing and cleaning with damaged tissue removal. This procedure is used for extensive and deep pockets. The gum is deflected and replaced after the procedure with stitches.
Cost:$260 USD per quadrant
Typical Duration: 1.5 hour per quadrant

Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Description: Surgical extraction of the wisdom tooth
Cost: $180 USD per tooth
Typical Duration: 1 to 1.5 hour

Bone Graft
Description: When there is not enough existing bone to anchor an oseointegrated implant in position, or when a bone defect won't allow complete coverage for the implant, the use of synthetic bone and collagen membranes is necessary. Many times, the bone graft is needed to prepare the existing bone for the osteointegrated implant a few months later.
Cost: $350 - $450 USD depending on the amount of bone and collagen membrane required.
Typical Duration: 1.5 hr

Implant, Osteointegrated titanium Implant (Surgical Step)
Description:
An osteointegrated implant with a titanium appliance replacing a tooth or group of teeth. This implant is fixed using a microintegration between the titanium and the bone. This is called "osteointegraton" and is a solid union between the bone and the titanium post (osteointegrated implant). The crown is placed over this post.
Cost: $900 USD. Includes osteointegrated titanium implant. Does not include the titanium post/abutment or Zirconia crown or any bone raft.
NOTE: A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts. 1) The titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone 2) The abutment, which fits over the titanium implant and 3) The crown which fits over the post abutment. Cost of a single complete tooth: $1750 USD.
Typical Duration: 1.5 hours if it is only one or two colaterals. More time will be required if more implants are being done or if a bone graft is required.

Implant Post (abutment) and Crown for osteointegrated titanium implant (Prosthetic Step)
Description:
The post abutment is a titanium appliance attached to the osteointegrated titanium implant (inside the bone) and connects it to the final Zirconia crown. This step finishes the implant process.
Cost: $850 USD. Includes titanium post abutment and Zirconia crown. Does not include the osteointegrated implant.
NOTE: A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts. 1) The Titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone 2) The abutment, which fits over the Titanium implant and 3) The crown which fits over the post abutment. Cost of a single complete tooth: $1750 USD.
Typical Duration: 4-8 days, divided into two or more visits depending on the amount of required units.

Partial Dentures
Description: Partial dentures are prosthetic appliances designed to supply teeth in the edentulous areas (areas without teeth) where fixed bridges are not possible. They are removable structures attached to existing teeth. They are built from a wide variety of materials, such as Polymeric resin and thermonylon and are a combination of metallic structure, retainers, polymeric base and teeth.
Cost: $550 - 650 USD (Cost depends on material used)
Typical Duration: 10 days or less

Full Dentures
Description: Full arch dentures are for totally edentulous (without teeth) top or bottom arch patients. A full arch denture is a removable tooth replacement option for those who need all their teeth replaced. It is made from thermoinjected polymeric resin.
Cost: $600 USD per arch
Typical Duration: 10 days or less
