On the banks of the Saigon River, this teeming megalopolis is vibrant and entertaining. From tea houses to late night bars, designer malls to market stalls and modern skyscrapers to ancient Chinese pagodas, you’ll find it all on Ho Chi Minh’s colorful streets.
Away from the hustle and bustle, you will find hygienic and modern dental offices, dispensing excellent dental treatments that are on a par with what you are used to.
Just because prices are low, this doesn’t reflect on the quality you will receive. Standards are high – the world is a small place and best practices and new techniques soon travel around the world. Wherever you go, there will always be dentists you would do well to avoid, which is why we always advise you to do some homework.
Dental Departures has taken the guesswork out of this for you. We only list quality-checked dentists on our site. This means we have already looked at criminal/legal records, checked out professional memberships and verified qualifications. Add to this the real patient testimonials and this gives you a fairly good idea of whether a dentist is trustworthy or not. Our website also includes high-resolution clinic photos, virtual tours and maps, so you can really narrow down your choices to what is best for you.
Our dentists also have warranties and guarantees on the work they do, as well as materials used in the lab work.
It usually takes 4 days in total, so you will need to factor in visits to the dentist on days 1 and 4, with the lab work taking place on the days between.
At the first dental appointment, your tooth will be prepared for the crown. This involves filing the tooth and impressions being made and sent to the lab so your crown can be custom-made to fit. A temporary crown is usually fitted until the permanent one is ready to be fitted. Your dentist will also discuss with you the type of material you want your crown to be made from. There are a variety of materials available, each with their own advantages, disadvantages and prices and your dentist will explain the different materials so you can make your own decision. For example, the most durable (and affordable) are porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM), but you may decide you prefer zirconia, which are more natural-looking, but also more expensive.
At your second appointment, the new, permanent crown will be fitted. It doesn’t take long, but your dentist will check it fits comfortably first, and perhaps do some minor adjustments, before cementing it permanently into place.
The average cost of dental crowns in Ho Chi Minh City are around AUD $160, compared to AUD $1,450 in Australia.
The price difference is so great that you may want to upgrade to the best materials you can afford – and you will still be saving over a thousand dollars per crown.
