The Ultimate Guide to

Dental Crowns in Costa Rica: The Complete Guide

Visit a dentist in Costa Rica for dental crowns and get high-quality care for a low-cost price. Book with Dental Departures and save around 70%.

For travelers from US and Canada, Costa Rica is only a few hours flight away. Its varied attractions provide the perfect place for a holiday and plenty of things to do for patients visiting for dental crown work.

Already a popular destination, its tropical climate, diverse landscapes and the friendliness of the ‘Tico’ people has ensured its popularity on the tourist map. Very much concerned with preserving shrinking wildlife habitats, Costa Rica has been at the forefront of ecotourism and offers visitors the chance to experience something a little different from a sand, sea and sunshine holiday – although there is, of course, plenty of this too.

For patients visiting for dental crowns, there are plenty of things to keep you occupied while waiting for the lab work on your crowns to be completed. From lying on a beach on the Caribbean Coast to trekking through jungles, and a whole host of other activities in between, Costa Rica does not disappoint.

Why have Dental Crowns in Costa Rica?

For anyone wanting varied experiences on their holiday Costa Rica packs a surprising amount into a tiny country. Because it is easy to get around, travelers can see a lot of what Costa Rica has to offer on a short vacation, which is something larger countries cannot offer simply because of the time required to travel large distances.

Increasing numbers of North American’s are finding they can travel here for their holidays, have their dental crown work done and still have spent less than the cost of their treatment alone at home. As one of our most popular destinations Costa Rica is hard to beat.

Despite the incredible savings to be made going to Costa Rica for dental crowns, there is no compromise on the quality of dental care patients receive. Many of our clinics are modern and use state-of-the-art equipment and the labs in Costa Rica use materials that are available inNorth America.

Furthermore, the Costa Rican dentists that we have hand-selected have all been quality-checked by us, to ensure they deliver a standard of service.

How long do Dental Crowns take in Costa Rica?

Altogether you will need to attend at your dentist’s office for two appointments over 4 days.

At your first appointment your dentist will discuss the options with you regarding the material for your dental crown. When you have made the decision the tooth receiving the crown will be shaped using a drill. After that impressions of your teeth will be made and sent to the lab so that they can make the crown. You may be fitted with a temporary crown until your permanent one is ready.

While you are waiting for the lab work to be completed you will have 2 or 3 days to enjoy whatever takes your fancy in Costa Rica.

When you return to the dentist your temporary crown will be removed and your dentist will carry out some final shaping of your tooth to make sure that your new crown is a good fit. When satisfied with the look and feel the new crown will be fixed permanently in place.

What is the cost comparison of Dental Crown Treatment in the United States and Canada to Costa?

The size of the crown and the material it is made from will ultimately decide on the final cost. However, whatever the material your dental crown will be substantially cheaper in Costa Rica – starting from around $275 compared to $1,150 in the United States.

The savings soon begin to mount up if you are having more than one crown, or other dental treatment, and it is not unusual to return home after a holiday in Costa Rica and one or two new dental crowns and still have saved more money than if you’d stayed at home.
