Getting Dental Crowns in Spain
Whether you want porcelain/ceramic crowns, porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns or zirconia crowns, you can get them at the best dental clinics in Spain. PFM crowns are the most durable but the least cosmetically desirable. Full porcelain/ceramic crowns look the most natural but are the least durable. Zirconia crowns look great, do not have any ugly gingival recession, but are the priciest among crowns. Once you have decided the kind of crown you need, you can proceed with your trip.
Visiting Your Dentist in Spain
It helps to know more about the procedure before you leave. You will make two or three visits to the dentist for your crowns. The first visit will be about examining your teeth, scanning, preparing your tooth, taking impressions and sending them to the lab for making the crown. The dentist will also fit a temporary crown.
On your second visit, the temporary crown will be replaced and fitted by the permanent one. The best part is that between these visits you can enjoy all the amenities and activities Spain offers as a holiday destination, or to recovery from your treatment. From the legendary nightclubs to amazing beaches to historic landmarks, you will not run out of things to see and do. Not to mention the cost savings you will enjoy!
If you require extractions and cannot stay in Spain till the treatment has healed, it is better to get the tooth extracted by your local dentist before you travel.
