Throughout the 1990s, the accelerated development of Escazú provided an opportunity for the Gil Dental Clinic to expand beyond its San Pedro roots and into a new, local community.
“We wanted this to be a place where patients from the western portion of San José—not just Escazú—could come to fulfill their dentistry needs,” says Dr. Lucas Gil.
In 2000, the second Gil Dental Clinic was built in Escazú to serve this population.
With the introduction of the Escazú clinic also came the consolidation of our internal laboratory—something that, according to Dr. Gil, has granted us complete control of the manufacturing process of our restoration materials. This has been a major advantage over other dental clinics in the San Jose region.
“The type of material we use, the techniques, the manufacturing and delivery times, the immediate repairs—all of these things have helped us guarantee a better service than the commercial laboratories,” says Dr. Gil.
With the development of our Escazú headquarters came another change to expand the clinic—our new name would be Gil Dental Group, thanks to the addition of more specialists. Their expertise in all forms of dentistry allows us to maintain a level of excellence that is unrivaled in Costa Rica.
In our Escazú clinic, we offer the same treatments as in San Pedro. Some of these are described below (for more information visit here):
Crowns and bridges:
These are fixed dental restorations that are used on damaged teeth or to restore implants.
Crowns and bridges can be made of different materials: metals, porcelain, or zirconium. They are currently manufactured using the new CAD / CAM technology, which has improved delivery times and is more comfortable for the patient.
If damage to a tooth is too large to make a filling directly in the mouth, we’ll scan your mouth to create a computer model, which then allows us to produce an appropriately-shaped porcelain inlay in our digital laboratory.
When we think of a radiant smile, our minds often turn to that of a young person. This is because the passage of time moves and reshapes our teeth, along with dulling their natural sheen.
At the Gil Dental Clinic in Escazu, we can help you restore the youthful aspect of your smile with tooth reshaping and cosmetic recontouring.
Cosmetic recontouring consists of polishing the teeth edges (as long as wear is not excessive) and clarifying defects (such as differences in shapes or small pigmentations). Thus, the teeth appear much more consistent in size and color, creating a more youthful expression.
We also offer teeth whitening, closing the gaps between teeth, and white fillings, all of which will help you improve your smile. You can find these services both in the Escazú Clinic and in San Pedro Clinic.
We have dental specialists for all your dental needs:
Oral and maxillofacial surgery
If you require a wisdom teeth evaluation, or if you have a tissue or bone lesion, we will gladly help you.
We also offer services in periodontics and endodontics.
Mouths have it rough. Chewing creates pressure on our teeth, daily stressors cause our dental bones to grind, and we often fail to maintain proper oral hygiene.
Here at the Gil Dental Clinic of Escazu, we see preventive care as a key aspect to stellar oral health. That’s why we advise our patients on issues like cavity prevention and other dental issues so that you can take control of your own oral health.
These are some of the services available at both Gil Dental Clinic in Escazú and Gil Dental Clinic in San Pedro.
