Dear Dr. Rivas "It is a pleasure to add my compliments. I left my recommendation with the concierge at The Holiday Inn, with some of your brochures. I visited 4 dentists for their opinions before I decided to ask Dr. Rivas to work on my teeth. Dr. Rivas choose the approach I was looking for. Thorough, yet not too invasive and economical but with to up-to-date technology. I felt very secure of placing my dental work in his hands, he has practiced for over 25 years in Guadalajara and has taken refresher courses both in his country and in the United States. His manner is meticulous and elicited. He is also very nice man and puts his patients at ease. His English is impeccable, a big plus when you are discussing medical decisions. The work Dr. Rivas did for me was beyond my expectations. I planned on having Dr. Rivas do my husband and my dental work on my next visit to Vallarta." Susan Kephart Montana, USA

"This was a perfect job"
5 50Reviewed 14 Jun 2010 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation,Dental Crowns,Veneers
Were you pleased with the treatment? I was not only pleased with the treatment, but the price. I needed all of my teeth done (28) with crowns and veneers as they were wearing away and cracking. I was quoted over $60,000 in Seattle (from 2 dentists) and I saved 80%. I have a new smile with fine work, that I wish I had done years ago as I am now 66.
The first day was to prepare the top teeth and I was given temps that looked great. The second day was the bottom teeth. Then on the 4th day he installed the crowns and veneers. This was a perfect job. He made them a bit higher in height too as I had worn down by bottom front teeth to almost nothing. We picked a perfect color too. I came back one more time for an adjustment and continued enjoying a vacation. I am very proud of my smile!
My wife is getting work done in November 2010 as she needs to have 5 crowns. She was quoted $7,500 for these here.

In choosing Dr. Rivas we did our research so we knew we would not have any surprises and there were none. Just a movie star smile. on there are no more cavities, and they will not change in color.
He is a terrific person with great chair side manner and concern. He is an artist. You will not be disapointed.
Would you recommend the clinic? Yes, yes yes.
Would you return for further treatment? yes. But for me it is a done deal. I won't even get any cavities.

Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Were you pleased with the treatment? Yes I was pleased, and the price was what they quoted me. The clinic was very clean and seemed pretty up-to-date. I liked that it was attached to a hospital that also looked pretty good.
Would you recommend the clinic? I have already recommended the clinic and will continue to do so. I will return myself in the future. The staff was friendly and honest. The treatment was very timely and they considered our schedule as much as possible.
Would you return for further treatment? Yes I will return in the future. As a Canadian with no dental plan it is currently worth the effort to go there.

Teeth Cleaning

Your teeth cleaning every six months or as adviced for your specific needs is the more important preventative   procedure you may have. Plaque, tartar and stains are removed from the teeth surfaces using a gentle ultrasound machine and special polishing rubber cups and brushes. In some cases the use of a baking soda and water jet stream is used to remove stains from between teeth.

€137 - €172
Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is accomplished applying a peroxide gel to the teeth surfaces. This gel has to be concentrated in order to work fas; the stronger the gel the faster the whitening process. When we use the strongest gel available (38% hydrogen peroxide) soft tissues must be protected and isolated using rubber barriers and gum isolation. The gel is applied for 15 minutes and a special light is activated after that time gel is removed from the teeth and re applied for another 15 minutes. A third application can be done to finish with the procedure. We can expect a change of 4 to 5 shade tabs lighter with this procedure.

€420 - €508
Guaranteed for 3 years.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic material used to change the color, shape, size and texture of teeth to make them appear more beautiful and give the patient an attractive smile. Can be used to hide unsightly discoloration of natural enamel, to close gaps between teeth and to re design the smile. They are permanently cemented to the teeth with a very strong cement. They are a less invasive alternative to crowns.
