Dentists in Spain continue to attract a growing number of dental tourists. People from the UK and other countries with expensive dental care look towards Spain’s dental clinics. Their ability to offer first-rate dental services at much lower rates makes them among the best in Europe. Since they are part of the EU, they are regulated by European Union authorities. Take a peek at some popular dental services and how much these clinics can help you save in Spain.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a surgical component used to replace a missing tooth. It interfaces with the jaw bone and a dental prosthesis like a crown, denture or bridge is added on its top. Dental implant procedures require two visits to the dentist, four to six months apart, to allow the implant to infuse with your bone.

The average cost of a dental implant in the UK is £3,000 (€3,417). Here are the prices top dentists in Spain charge:

FULL-ARCH RESTORATIONS / All-on-6

The main difference between all-on-6 and all-on-4 is that six implants are used in the former. And while the all-on-4 is an immediate load with a fixed temporary plate, the all-on-6 has a removable temporary plate. It also does not have an artificial gum line; it merely depends on the patient’s preference. On average, this solution costs around

£25,638 (€28,465) in the UK. Here are the prices at the best dentists in Spain offer:

  • Velez and Lozano Dental Office: £6,197 (€7,400)

  • Crooke & Laguna Malaga: £7,604 (€9,100)

Crowns

A dental crown is a “tooth-like” restoration that goes on top of a dental implant or tooth. Common materials include porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), full porcelain or full ceramic, and zirconia crowns. Each material has its own pros and cons; discuss these with your dentist before choosing one. The only con of zirconia crowns is the price. But since you can get it for so much less in Spain, you can go for this material without spending a fortune. In the UK a crown will cost £863 (€1,026) on average. Here are the starting prices at the best clinics in Spain:

Root Canals

The root canal treatment eliminates the infected pulp of a tooth. The length of the procedure depends on your tooth’s condition and the extent of the infection. After the infection is cleared, your dentist will fill or crown the tooth, which may need some more time to complete. It is best to discuss these factors with your dentist before traveling to Spain. On average, the treatment costs £954 (€1,133) in the UK. Here is what the leading clinics in Spain charge:

  • Velez and Lozano Dental Office: £201 (€240)

  • Crooke & Laguna Malaga: £183 (€220)

Fillings

A dental filling restores tooth damage to its original shape and function. The dentist will remove the decayed tooth matter, clean the affected region, and then add a filling in the cavity. Common types of filling material include gold, amalgam (silver), composite and porcelain. While the price of fillings may not warrant a special trip to Spain, you can consider getting it while already in Spain or combine it with another more expensive procedure if possible. The average price of fillings in the UK is £116 (€137). Here is what the top Spanish clinics charge:

  • Velez and Lozano Dental Office: £42 (€50)

  • Crooke & Laguna Malaga: £42 (€50)
