Those in-the-know are traveling to Thailand for dental crowns at unbelievably low prices compared to back home - let us show you how.

Why have Dental Crowns in Thailand? 

Amazing hospitality, a landscape that ranges from lush mountains to white sandy beaches, a world-renowned cuisine and countless activities to try and it is little wonder that Thailand’s popularity shows no sign of decreasing.

It’s ‘land of smiles’ reputation is now becoming synonymous with expertise in dentistry, with many patients who have had their care here insisting that it surpassed the standards they had received at home.

Standards of dental care in Thailand are particularly good. The country has embraced dental tourism and no matter where you are in the country, especially in the major tourist resorts, you will find good-quality facilities with well-qualified and highly-skilled dentists.

Dental and medical care is competitive, which means that dental clinics strive to provide the best services to ensure that they have the edge over their competitors. This is good for patients as it keeps prices lower, and guarantees that dental clinics will provide quality services.

Many Thai dental clinics have state-of-the-art facilities and equipment and are careful to maintain excellent standards of hygiene and safety in line with international protocols. Furthermore, lower priced treatment does not mean lesser quality materials as labs in Thailand have access to the same materials your dentist at home does. 

How long do Dental Crowns take in Thailand?

It usually takes 4 or 5 days to complete your treatment. You will need two appointments with your dentist on the first and final day, and the lab work is carried out in between.

The process will involve your dentist preparing your tooth to receive the crown on your first appointment. The tooth will be filed down and impressions made and sent to the lab so they can make the crown to fit.

You may be given a temporary crown for a few days until you can return to your dentist for the permanent one to be fitted. At your return appointment the dentist will first check that the crown fits properly, and if satisfied will cement it permanently in place. 

What is the cost comparison of Dental Crown Treatment in Australia and New Zealand to Thailand?

The different materials that your crown can be made of will affect the price. If budget is your concern then porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns are usually the best choice. If cost is not a concern you may prefer to go with the most natural-looking, which incidentally is the most hard-wearing, zirconia. Your dentist will discuss the merits of each type of material with you on your first appointment.

In Australia, dental crowns start from around AUD $1,200 but start around AUD $264 in Thailand. Zirconia crowns are around AUD $1,500 in Australia, compared to AUD $444 in Thailand.
