Dental Clinics in Andalucia

Dental clinics offer a wide range of services throughout Andalucia, with the public health system in Andalucia only covering emergency extractions and basic dental care for children. In areas with large foreign populations like the Costa del Sol, you will find dentists from around the world, as well as specialists in orthodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic dentistry who offer the latest, state of the art “smile makeovers”.

Check-ups and Dental Hygiene

Standards for general check ups and teeth cleaning vary widely from clinic to clinic. Be prepared with a list of questions before making an appointment and pay close attention to service and price as these can indicate quality. If you are coming to Andalucia from a region in the world where teeth cleaning takes 45 minutes to an hour on average, you might be surprised at the 8 to 10 minute blast cleaning offered at some of the most economical clinics. Quality comes at a price and can be procured through careful selection.



Orthodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry

Orthodontists provide service throughout Spain while the latest in cosmetic dentistry is usually secured in larger towns and cities or in more affluent areas such as Sotogrande. Specialists in cosmetic surgery work as a team to provide a wide array of services that begin with digital photography and x-ray sessions in order to assess every aspect of your teeth and smile.

These specialists are prepared to deal with numerous concerns including the size, shape, placement, or colour of your teeth. Amazingly, today’s smile makeovers can fix almost any problems you present, like gaps, chips, stains, discolouration, missing teeth, crooked teeth, short teeth, oversized teeth, slanting teeth, misaligned teeth, gummy smiles, aging dental work, and old silver filling.

Today’s specialists use a variety of diagnostic aids to accomplish the ultimate smile makeovers. We take a series digital photographs of your smile, digital x-rays, models of your teeth to analyse your bite.We make a ”mock-up” model so we can communicate clearly with the dental laboratory to create the most beautiful, natural looking smile.

A smile makeover will improve the look of your smile, as well as restore any dental problems that you might have, adjust your bite and reset muscles in your jaw so that you will look good and feel great.

Choosing a Specialist

Numerous competent professionals provide dental services across Andalucia. However, should you feel more comfortable working with someone who speaks English, it may be worth your time to travel to the provinces of Málaga or Cádiz where you will find clinics run by English speaking dental professionals.
