Not at all. I just have never seen any from Mexico or Central America that I would put in my own mouth. I tell you this as a dentist that has replaced MANY "great high quality" foreign restorations due to the fact that they were very shoddy in many ways (poor margins, substandard cements, substandard porcelains, poorly designed metal substructures, poor occlusal design/relationships, open contacts, tissue impingement, etc to name a few); you have to be extremely judicious in your choice of foreign dentists. In many cases there is no one to hold them to any standards. Yes, there are bad ones here too. There is just much better oversight so your odds are better here. Doctor means more here than in many places. Some foreign "dentists" are not doctors.
Oh yes, it is inexpensive alright. It's also cheap.
Caveat Emptor.
