Advance Dental | Costa Rica Treatments Offered

We Completely Specialize in the following Dental Procedures:

  • Teeth Whitening Bleaching: Enjoy the look of a whiter, more radiant smile with a teeth-whitening treatment. We offer different bleaching/Whitening options. This is the ideal complement to dental hygiene or oral restorations.
  • Composite resins: After an accident, trauma, cavities or any other dental problems, one of the treatments recommended by our team is a white composite restoration. Such restorations are made when a small portion of  the tooth  needs to be resconstructed. Resins are applied to the tooth, and after undergoing photo-curing and polishing, these acquire the necessary properties to give you a shiny and natural looking smile.
  • Porcelain veneers: Give your teeth a new look with porcelain veneers. This type of restoration covers your front teeth with a porcelain veneer that helps the tooth acquire a fresh new look, since it hides all imperfections caused by pigmentation (stained teeth), small fractures or any other small imperfections.
  • Inlays/Onlays: Do you have silver or blackened fillings that you wish to change into something more aesthetic-looking? Are your molars affected by small to moderate cavities? Are they cracked, fractured or do they show damages that are still not severe enough for a dental crown? Then this type of restoration may be part of  your treatment in order to fulfill your expectations! Remember that in order to qualify for porcelain inlays, your teeth must  have at least 80% of their original structure present and intact.
  • Dental crowns: This type of restoration is used on teeth that show a significant loss of dental structure. A much damaged tooth is strengthened in its entirety by covering it with a porcelain jacket. This way the tooth recovers its function and natural beauty.
  • Dental bridges: When one or more teeth are lost, a bridge may be the recommended solution. The bridge is a structure that spans through space between teeth, which is connected by existing teeth in both side. Lost teeth are replaced by crowns cemented to such structure, and once these are fixed in place, your mouth regains its functions and healtly and natural look.
  • Dental implants: These are artificial substitutes of the roots of natural teeth. Restorations are permanently implanted in the oral cavity. Replaced teeth are fixed to the supporting part of the  implant. They  can support either fixed or removable prosthesis.
  • Complete dentures: These type of removable oral restorations are designed for persons that have lost all their teeth, upper, lower or both, for different reasons. With complete dentures the appearance functionality of the mouth is renewed. They are also utilized in the initial stage before complete fixed rehabilitation through implants.
  • Partial Dentures: By employing the teeth that still exist in the mouth, partial dentures help restore empty areas after loss of. These are highly complex rehabilitations involving all or almost all the teeth. When is this treatment necessary? The reasons range from a large quantity of crowns and bridges made during several years, where the materials and colors are different; persons with bruxism whose teeth have been worn due to constant teeth grinding; gastric reflux, or any other disorders causing the loss of dental structure.
  • Oral surgeries: There is a wide variety of surgical treatment designed for different puporses, such as improving gum outline, setting implants, removing teeth and some of an exploratory nature, among others. This type of intervention is mostly perfomed by a team including other highly professional specialists sucha as: periododontists, endodontists and maxilliofacial surgeons.
  • Root canal treatments, endodontic procedures: When the vitality of a tooth is compromised, or its nerve has been damaged, a root canal treatment is in order. The affected nerve is then replace by an restorative material and, depending on the amount of the remaining dental structure, it is restored with a resin, veneer, incrustation, crown or bridge in order to provide a more aesthetically pleasing look to the mouth.

Advance Dental | Costa Rica Testimonials

Julia Smeirat
During the past eighteen months I have been treated at L.L.U.S.D. by Dr. E Brenes. From the beginning of the treatment I knew I had been truly fortunate to have been assigned a caring, considerate and compassionate man. He has always kept me fully updated and taken great lengths to make sure I completely understand and agree with the treatment plan. Initially I thought the dental school would be overwhelming and impersonal but Dr. Brenes made the experience the exact opposite. He is approachable and makes himself readily available  even for the smallest of questions or concerns, and yet maintains the utmost professionalism.

I have always had a phobia pf going to the dentist but Dr. Brenes changed that. He is patient and makes sure all procedures are painless. His skills, enthusiasm and calm, reassuring manner have all contributed to enjoyable visits. He is a very special individual and has a unique way of putting me at ease, knowing he will always strive to achieve the highest possible results for me. He has accomplished more than I could possibly have hoped for and I feel privileged to have had Dr. Brenes work on my case. I wish him success as he moves on hid professional life.




So Thankful For You, Dr. Brenes

I hope you’ll always realize how very much you mean to those whose lives you’ve touched along the way that you’ll know the happy smiles you see and laughter that you hear…are the thank you`s words alone could never say.

Dr. Brenes, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all your hard work, and your caring manner. I have been to so many dentists in my life, but none as considerate as you! I wish
you all the success in the world!
