"I am very happy with the end results. My smile looks great"
4.5 50Reviewed 15 May 2018 Verified user.
Treatment Received: Composite Veneers
I had 20-year-old composite veneers that were long overdue to be replaced. I had all 10 of these veneers replaced with porcelain veneers. I was on a tight schedule. The dentist, Dr. Calderon, met me on Sunday for a consultation and I had the work done the next day. I was impressed that he was able to accommodate my schedule and meet me on his day off. I was also very pleased with his English fluency and the time he took to explain the procedure to me and answer my questions and concerns.

I am very happy with the end results. My smile looks great!

I had been unable to afford this work in the United States and had to repeatedly defer the work. In the US the cost would have been between $10,000 - $20,000 and I just could not afford it. I was reticent to have this work done outside the US or Canada, but I'm happy I did.

I had the original composite veneers done in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. That dentist did a great job too! Those veneers were only supposed to have lasted 10 years and they lasted 20. I am equally happy with this dentist and I expect these new veneers will outlast me.

My first impressions of the clinic were very favorable. The office is located in a modern office building near the Hilton Princess Hotel in downtown Managua. The dentist uses state-of-the-art technology to perform laser scans of patient’s teeth, digitally engineer the new smile, show the patient what it will look like, and then mill the veneers on-site.

Not only does this ensure high quality, it allows the patient to see what the smile will look like beforehand, and allows all the work to be completed in one day. The milling machine is a German product called CEREC OMNICAM. There is a YouTube video of it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orqRRaFc8o0. It is quite impressive and it is one of the main reasons I decided to have the work done here.

If you have never been to Nicaragua, don’t be afraid. Managua is a modern city and it is much nicer and safer than a city like San Jose, Costa Rica. I actually considered having this work done in Costa Rica; however, after living there for a year and a half, I would not recommend it. In general, I have found that Nicaraguans have a much better work ethic, are much more competent, and much more punctual. There is a moto in Costa Rica: “Pura Vida”. It translates to “Pure Life” but what it really means is: “I don’t give a crap.” And that careless attitude is pervasive. That’s not to say that everyone is careless but it does make it challenging to find competent people there. It has been my experience that the people in Nicaragua take much more pride in their work. The cost is less too.

If you need accommodations, I would recommend staying at the Hilton Princess. It is a great hotel in downtown Managua. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is awesome. The hotel is only about 10 – 15 minutes from the dentist and they can arrange for transportation not only from the airport but also to the dentist. I would strongly recommend using the car service at the hotel rather than local taxis. The cost is a little more but the vehicles are much nicer (new Toyotas).

If you need the same type of dental work done, I would recommend that you consider Nicaragua in general and this dentist, Dr. Calderon, in particular.
