cosmetic dentistry/lumineers

Jump to last reply

Hi all! I would really like to get lumineers done. My teeth are strong & straight, but they have a slight grayish cast. They were never white-white, even as a child. I've had them whitened several times, but it ony works a little. I can't use the at home strips & such because my gums are extremely sensitive. I've been pricing them here (I live in NYC) & it's exhorbitantly expensive.

I'm thinking it may be less expensive elsewhere in the US & I'm willing to travel. Also,
I know that peo go overseas for cosmetic surgery & dentistry, & I've always been afraid to do to. However, in this case I might be willing to take the risk, if I get good recommendations from someone. I've noticed that sometimes my teeth actually look worse on camera than in person, which is a huge issue for me since I'm a performer.

I've heard various things about Costa Rica, Panama, Honduras, Brazil ......... Does anyone have any suggestions? Recommendations? Warnings?

Thanks so much!
