Mexicali is located just over the border from Calexico in California and is fast becoming a popular destination for North Americans to obtain good quality, reasonably-priced dental care, including crowns.

Put-off by high dental costs in the US and Canada, savvy retirees, snow-birds, day-trippers and vacationers are heading to Mexicali in the knowledge that they can find quality dental treatment for much less.

With good travel connections and a sunny climate, all your needs catered for in this modern city, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to keep you occupied while you are waiting for the lab materials to be sent back to your dentist. Others might prefer a round of golf or a trip to the nearby Guadalupe Canyon, among other attractions a short drive out of town. 

Why Have Dental Crowns in Mexicali? 

Dental tourism throughout Mexico, including Mexicali, is growing every year with dentists here experienced in treating overseas patients. You can expect the best facilities in Mexicali to be just as good as you are used to at home and your crowns made from the same high-quality materials used as standard across the world.

Mexicali has evolved into a modern city and its dental clinics are no exception. Many are equipped with the latest in dental technology (such as digital panoramic x-rays and CT scans) and adhere to strict protocols on sterilization procedures and cleanliness. Our dentists are quality-checked by us for their qualifications and experience, so you can be confident that you will receive the very best treatment and facilities that are currently available.

With all the praised heaps on our partner dentists in Mexico, you may be wondering why treatment here is so much less? Quite simply, it is because the cost of living in Mexico is significantly less than in the US or Canada, which means lower overheads (such as wages, rent, etc.)

How Long Do Dental Crown Treatments Take in Mexicali? 

Dental crown work usually take only a day or two to complete, particularly if your clinic has an inhouse laboratory using the latest CAD/CAD technology. Most facilities serving international patients understand the importance of swift turnaround; you might wish to inquire how long the procedure will take.

An appointment with your dentist is scheduled on the first day and last day of your treatment plan, and the lab work is carried out in between. If your dentist has an on-site laboratory, this may be quicker (as little as a few hours for same day crowns).

At your first appointment, your tooth will be cleaned and shaped, and impressions made to be sent to the lab. While the lab work is carried out, a temporary crown may be fitted to protect your tooth.

At your second appointment, the temporary crown is removed and the newly-made replacement fitted, possibly after a little filing down of your tooth. The permanent crown will be permanently cemented in place once you and your dentist are happy with the shape, fit and color.

How Much Can I Save on Dental Crowns in Mexicali Compared to the US or Canada?

The material and size of the crown will have a bearing on the cost, but in Mexicali they will be considerably cheaper than in the United States and Canada. Prices start at around $1,150 in North America, but in Mexicali the entire procedure can cost as little as $220.
