The Ultimate Guide to Crowns in Ubud

Last fact-checked: 11 February 2020

Book yourself in for a dental crown in Ubud on your holiday-of-a-lifetime to Bali and make savings of 85%.

Granted, with Bali’s incredible lineup temple ruins, expansive beaches and jaw-dropping scenery, dental work might not be high up on your island to-do list. But with the chance to save over a thousand dollars on this important dental procedure, you might want to hear us out first!

What Is a Dental Crown? Do I Need One?

Dental crowns are useful in a variety of dental problems. They are sometimes referred to as ‘caps’ because they are placed on top of your existing tooth, like a hat. They are used to:

● add strength to a tooth that may have become weakened due to decay or damage;

● cover a discoloured, stained or badly shaped tooth;

● restore a missing tooth in either a bridge or as part of a dental implant.

Your dentist will let you know if you need a crown from a health point of view as sometimes other treatments, such as a filling, may in fact suffice. If you want one for cosmetic reasons, your dentist can also advise on the best materials available and talk with you through other potential solutions.

What Is the Procedure for a Dental Crown?

Before a crown or bridge is made, the tooth (or the teeth either side of a gap where a crown is being used to replace a missing tooth) must be prepared. This involves reducing the tooth structure in size so the cap can be fitted comfortably. Once the tooth has been prepared, the dentist will need to make impressions that are sent to a laboratory where your new crown is to be made to measure. You will need to return to have the crown fitted in a few days’ time, but in the meantime, you will be fitted with a temporary crown.

If your dental provider offers CAD/CAM dental restorations, it may be possible for the entire procedure to be completed in one day. Although prices may be higher, this is something to consider if time is of the essence.

Your dentist will also discuss the type of materials that are available for your crown. Your preferences will be taken into account, as well as the suitability of the material for each particular tooth.

All materials have their pros and cons; for example, porcelain is aesthetically pleasing but prone to fracture. An alternative is porcelain-fused-to-metal, which is stronger but sometimes the metal casts a grey shadow, especially as it ages. Zirconia is one of the newest materials available. It is biocompatible, very strong and has natural-looking qualities that mimic your own tooth. This is one of the most expensive options, although in Ubud you may find there is little difference in the price and so you could upgrade to zirconia without it costing too much more.

Can I Rely On the Quality of Dental Crowns in Ubud?

The quality of dental care in Bali is good and, with some research, you will discover excellent facilities on the island catering to international patients. Ubud is a popular location, and where traditional tourists go, dental tourism soon follows. This generally ensures that clinics offer services with which international patients are satisfied; after all, if the services weren’t good, then patients would have stopped coming a long time ago.

However, as with any medical treatment, it is up to you to make sure you have carried out your due diligence and researched the dental providers in the area. This isn’t always easy to do when you are coming from overseas. Rather than leave it to chance, it’s best to book a facility that you know is reliable, and this is where Dental Departures comes in to help.
