When you are on vacation, tooth fillings do not easily come to mind. However, in Cabo San Lucas, a popular holiday destination in Mexico, many visitors have discovered high-quality dental care available for a fraction of the price back home. Deploying modern techniques, Cabo dentists can quickly and painlessly treat your teeth in an hour or two, sending you on your way with significant cost savings.

Dental fillings have low treatment time and downtime, so they are a good option if you are mixing a holiday with dental treatment. There will be minimal impact on your busy vacation schedule.

Dental fillings are used to restore structural tooth defects such as holes, cracks, and decay. These cavities may cause heightened sensitivity or pain. If the cavity is not filled, further damage to the tooth can occur, and there is a potential risk of the root becoming infected. That can result in the need for a root canal treatment, a dental crown or even cause the loss of the tooth, all of which should be avoided if possible.

What Does the Treatment Involve?

Dentists in Cabo San Lucas provide superior dental fillings using the same materials as their American counterparts. Two types of dental filling are generally used, depending upon how severe the tooth decay is:

  1. Direct Fillings - These are the easiest, quickest and most common option. Nearly everyone has undergone a dental filling and the whole process can be completed in as little as half an hour.

  2. Indirect Fillings – This option is used when a larger portion of decay needs to be removed. Normally this is a custom restoration and a crown (replacement tooth) is applied to the remaining tooth after the decay has been removed. This treatment takes longer as it requires the measurement and fabrication of a crown.
