Dental crowns are a type of dental restoration which form a cap over the tooth. They are one of the most popular dental procedures as they can be used functionally to strengthen teeth, and esthetically to disguise damaged or ugly teeth.
1: Restorative – They are used to restore the full function of a damaged or missing tooth – so your speech won’t be impeded, and you can chew your food properly.
2: Protection – On damaged and decayed teeth they provide a shield, protecting a tooth from further decay and acting as a splint to strengthen a weak tooth.
3: Cosmetic – Improve the look of discolored, mis-shapen, cracked, chipped or broken teeth; and attached to a bridge replace a missing tooth to really perk up your smile.
4: Comfort – Unlike dentures they don’t slip.
5: Durable – Crowns can last for up to 15 years if you take care of them and don’t place extra stresses upon them, such as grinding your teeth.
Guadalajara is Mexico’s second city. It has a compact, historic city center which is lovely to walk around, but it is also a 21st century city as far as amenities and technology are concerned. A lot of international electronics companies are based in and around the city and inside your dentist’s office you will also find the very latest diagnostic and therapeutic equipment.
The facilities in the clinics are just as good as you would expect in any major modern city – clean, hygienic and state-of-the-art. Likewise, your Guadalajara dentist is equipped with the necessary skills and expertise to deliver good standards of care. Our dentists are all quality-checked and offer guarantees on the work they do, as well as any materials used.
The dental materials used for prosthodontics, such as dental crowns, are not cheaper versions of what you would get at home. In fact, the exact same brands are available and used here, so you needn’t worry that your dental crowns will somehow be inferior.
Usually, it will take up to 4 days to complete your dental crown work in Guadalajara, although it can sometimes be a little quicker if your dentist has their own on-site laboratory.
You will have two appointments with your dentist – on days 1 and 4, with the lab work taking place in between. At your first appointment your tooth will be prepared for the crown. Your tooth will be filed down and impressions sent to the lab where the crown will be custom-made to fit. You may be fitted with a temporary crown while you are waiting.
When the crown is ready you will return to your dentist for the fitting. After checking it fits, and you and your dentist are happy with it, it will be permanently bonded in place.
In the United States, dental crowns start from around $1,150 but start from around $208 in Guadalajara. Zirconia crowns are around $1,600 in the United States, compared to only $400 in Guadalajara.
As you can see, the savings are substantial, particularly so if you need to have several crowns.
