Receiving restorative and preventative treatments, such as tooth fillings and professional cleaning, can really add up at home. This is why more and more Americans are crossing the border to take advantage of the low prices available in Mexico.

Americans are taking dental vacations in response to the increasing dental costs in the US and Canada, and with Dental Departures, you can narrow down your search when looking to save money on everyday dentistry in Mexico.

Get Long-Lasting Tooth Fillings in Mexico

Fillings restore decayed or damaged teeth using either direct or indirect fillings:

  • Direct tooth fillings involve placing the material—normally amalgam, composite resin, resin ionomer or glass ionomer.
  • Indirect fillings, on the other hand, are created in the laboratory and cemented onto the tooth.

Whatever type of filling you choose, the quality in Mexico is high, so return visits will not be necessary.

Pay Just 20% for a Filling in Mexico

In Mexico, teeth fillings are a fraction of the cost in the US, with people traveling from all over North American to take advantage of Mexico’s affordability. Below is a comparison of Mexican prices with those in the US and Canada for a composite filling:


$201 VERSUS $45 Saving $156


$257 VERSUS $58 Saving $199
