The Ultimate Guide to Fillings in Ajijic

Whether you need a routine or emergency dental filling in Ajijic, book with one of our quality-checked dentists to save more than 65% compared to at home.

What is the cost of dental fillings in Ajijic?

Dental fillings in Ajijic start from around $47 for a white, composite filling, compared to $155 in the United States and Canada.

What does the procedure for fillings involve and how long does it take in Ajijic?

Your dentist will first numb the area around the tooth to be filled with a local anesthetic. After this either a drill or laser is used to remove the decayed area. Once this is removed the space for the filling is prepared by clearing the cavity of debris and bacteria. The filling material is then put in place and allowed to harden, after which your dentist will finish it by filing it to fit. When you are happy with how it feels, the filling will be polished and the procedure is complete.

If you are having a tooth-colored filling, the material is applied in layers, and a special light that hardens each layer is applied between each application. Once the multilayering process is finished the filling will be shaped as desired and polished to complete.

Most fillings are completed in less than an hour. If you have a large back tooth it may take a little longer.

What filing materials are available?

There are several dental filling materials in use today. Teeth can be filled with amalgam, gold, porcelain and composite. Your dentist will discuss the options available with you.

Why have dental fillings in Ajijic?

It probably wouldn’t be cost-effective for you to travel to Ajijic specifically for dental fillings, unless you were thinking of having your amalgam fillings removed, in which case it probably would be. However, if you are visiting Ajijic you may need an emergency dental filling. You will certainly save a lot so it is worth considering having your routine dental maintenance done while you are visiting.
