Crowns in Mexico City

The Ultimate Guide to Crowns in Mexico City

Last fact-checked: 8 February 2020

Looking to save on the cost of your dental crowns? Dental Departures makes it easy to find and book with a reliable dentist for dental crowns in Mexico City. With prices around 60% lower across the border, it's possible to save a thousand dollars or more, depending on materials and the extent of your treatment. 

More and more North Americans are discovering that affordable, quality dental crowns (among other treatments) are available just a few hours away in Mexico City. Savvy patients looking for cost-effective alternatives to the escalating costs at home have found that Mexico City’s modern facilities deliver first-rate dental care - with plenty to do and see in this sprawling metropolis in between appointments. 

Imposing architecture, fashionable neighborhoods, tranquil parks and chic restaurants provide ample opportunities for relaxation in this historic city. Providing all the amenities modern travelers could wish for, Mexico is proving to be a safe, convenient and, most importantly, a cost-effective destination to receive dental crowns.

The weather in Mexico City is generally good all year round–even in the rainy season, you can expect sunshine (as well as showers). Direct flights from most major US and Canadian cities also add to the convenience, especially for first-time dental tourists looking to avoid the hassle of transfers and long road trips. 

Why Have Dental Crowns in Mexico City?

Yes, the substantially lower prices are the biggest draw for patients coming to Mexico City for their dental crowns, but the quality of treatment, facilities, and materials follows close behind. 

Dental tourism is a rapidly growing industry that forward-thinking cities, like the Mexican capital, are keen to embrace. Awareness of the standards in countries such as the US and Canada has prompted dental and health care providers to deliver care that is as good as patients would receive at home. This also creates the need for clinics abroad to be accredited with the same international organizations and professional governing bodies that providers at home would be.

Overall, standards in Mexico City are generally high, with modern dental clinics implementing the latest technology and labs in Mexico using the same materials that are available in the US and Canada.

How Long Will My Dental Crown Take in Mexico City?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped ‘ replacement caps’ that fit over a tooth, for example, to restore its appearance if damaged, or to provide strength or to cover a dental implant.

Crowns are either 'temporary' or 'permanent'; temporaries are made at your dentist’s office and fitted only until your permanent crowns are ready while permanent ones are made at a laboratory. If your dentist has an in-house lab using modern CAD/CAM techniques, crowns can usually be created and place in your mouth within a day or two.

The first visit to the dentist is the checking and preparation stage. Your dentist may take x-rays to check that the surrounding bone and roots of the tooth are healthy enough to receive the crown–if not, further treatment may be required. Next, the tooth and surrounding area will be numbed and the tooth filed down to make room for the crown. If a large area of tooth is missing (due to damage or decay), the tooth may need to be built up with filling material to support the crown. When your dentist is happy with the shape, impressions are made and sent to the lab for the crown to be custom-made.

This is where the temporary crown comes in handy: it's placed in order to protect your tooth until the permanent crown is ready a few days later. 

On your second appointment, the dentist will remove the temporary crown for it to be replaced with the permanent one. After some final adjustments, the permanent crown will be cemented in place.

Your dentist will discuss with you beforehand what material is most suitable for you. Crowns are available in a variety of different materials, including zirconia, ceramic, porcelain and porcelain fused to metal. 

How Much Can I Save on Dental Crowns in Mexico City Compared to the US and Canada?

Standard porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns cost around $1,150 in the US. In Mexico City, they start at around $500.  For pricier zirconia crowns, even bigger savings can be made - prices are around $1,600 in the US but just $750 in Mexico City.

Interested in seeing exactly where in Mexico City you can find treatment as these price points? Then take a look at three of our most popular partner clinics listed on Dental Departures below:

Crowns last a minimum of five years and up to 15 years (if they are made from zirconia). Coming to Mexico City will allow you to upgrade to longer-lasting higher-quality dental crowns–which still cost less than the least expensive types of crowns at home.
