Why Have Dental Crowns in Puerto Vallarta?

The dental clinics in Puerto Vallarta are just as good as the clinics at home. They offer the same treatments, have the same facilities and use the same materials. You can be certain that the dental crowns you have in Puerto Vallarta will be fashioned from the same material as dental crowns at home – the only difference will be in the price.

The best dental clinics in Puerto Vallarta are actually much more modern than some clinics at home. This is because dental tourism is increasing every year, which benefits patients in a number of ways. First, this increase is cross border dental tourism increases competition. Those with up-to-date facilities, modern clinics and the best reviews will naturally get the most patients. Second, the increased competition also keeps prices lower. Thirdly, the increased competition also ensures your dentist offers outstanding quality treatment, and to achieve this, they must be fully trained in their specialist areas.

Although there is no mandatory requirement in Mexico for ongoing professional registration and certification, many Mexican dentists, particularly those involved in dental tourism, are choosing to have professional certification, not just with the Mexican Dental Association (ADM) but with recognized dental certification boards in the US and Canada. Many are members of the American Dental Association (ADA).

How Long Do Dental Crown Treatments Take in Puerto Vallarta?

Dental Crown work in Puerto Vallarta usually takes 2-3 days. Two appointments are scheduled with your dentist on the first and last day, with the lab work completed in between. These days it's common for the best clinics in Mexico to provide same day service if the facility's lab uses CAD/CAM technology.  If you are pressed for time, ask your dentist about while-you-wait crowns.

On your first visit, the dentist will thoroughly clean the tooth and it will be shaped using a drill. Impressions of the teeth will be made and the lab will make the crown to fit your tooth. A temporary crown will be fitted by the dentist while the lab work is carried out.

The temporary crown will be removed on your next visit, and the tooth filed in preparation to receive the new dental crown. Once you and your dentist are happy with the fit, color and shape the new crown will be firmly cemented in place.
