The Department of Dentistry at Costa Rica Bluezone provides top-class dental care. There is offered the full range of services, including dental implants, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, fixed bridges, onlays, root canal treatment, teeth whitening, digital smile design and many others. The dentists work for the benefit of the patients ensuring healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.

It is known that implants have recently become very popular. The Department of Dentistry at Costa Rica Bluezone, headed by Dr. Alejandro Sáenz Gutiérrez, offers first-class services in dental implantology. Among the latest ones is All-On-4 procedure. The dental implant is placed on its own roots remaining natural teeth or dental implants that have been installed previously. The retained root or implant provides excellent stability for the prosthetic implants. There are also offered Zygoma dental implants used for the edentulous upper jaw where there is severe bone resorption in the upper jaw. They can also be used in case when bone condition has insufficient anchorage for prosthesis (fixed bridges or overdentures). Zygoma implant presents a unique alternative for rehabilitating the severely resorbed maxilla with only one surgical procedure.

The Department of Dentistry at Costa Rica Bluezone under the direction of Dr. Alejandro Sáenz Gutiérrez also offers porcelain veneers. These are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. When the patient has broken or fractured teeth, decayed teeth, fractured fillings or very large fillings, he/she can have porcelain crowns. These are coverings that encase the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Porcelain fixed bridges are also very popular and serve to replace missing teeth. In addition, the physicians of the Department of Dentistry at Costa Rica Bluezone, headed by Dr. Alejandro Sáenz Gutiérrez, offer porcelain onlays. These can be utilized to conservatively repair teeth that have large defective fillings or have been damaged by decay or trauma. Onlays are an ideal alternative to crowns because less tooth structure is removed in the preparation of onlays. All these means serve to restore your smile and to return joy to your life.

Another popular procedure provided in the Department of Dentistry at Costa Rica Bluezone is tooth whitening. It is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and which is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. The main reasons for tooth whitening include fluorosis (excessive fluoridation during tooth development), normal wear of outer tooth layer and stained teeth due to medications. There is also an innovative Zoom2 procedure (in-office whitening). It is safe, effective and very fast. The specialists of the Department of Dentistry at Costa Rica Bluezone are also highly experienced in making composite fillings and providing root canal treatment.
