How Long Do Dental Crowns Take in the Philippines?

A dental crown will usually be completed by a lab in a couple of days, although if your clinic has CAD/CAM technology then you may be able to get your new crown in one visit while you wait. You will need an appointment with your dentist on the first day so that your tooth can be prepared to receive the crown and your dentist can take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab to make the crown. After the crown has been made, you will return to your dentist to have it fitted. You should be able to get your dental crown treatment completed in four days or less.

How Much Can I Save on Crowns Compared to Australia or New Zealand?

The size and material of your dental crown will affect the final cost. On your first appointment, your dentist will discuss the pros and cons of each type of material.

For example, if budget is your main concern, the most affordable is porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). However, if you want the most natural-looking and cost is no object then you may be happier with zirconia, which lasts 15 years or more. Your dentist can explain other options as well.

In Australia and New Zealand, dental crowns start at $1,200 compared to $83 in the Philippines. Zirconia start at $1,500 in Australia and New Zealand; from $392 in the Philippines.

Our past patients give high marks to Sacred Heart Dental Clinic and Smile More Dental Clinic (both in Manila), Bonifacio Dental Center in Angeles City, and Lim Dental Center in Davao City.
