Why Have Dental Crowns in Bangkok?

Bangkok, the pulsating capital of Thailand, is the most-visited city in Southeast Asia, attracting over 30 million people each year. Bisected by the Chao Phraya River, a considerable factor in Bangkok's growth, the frequent ferries crossing the river still provide an important means of getting across the city.

Bangkok's strategic geographical position has ensured its evolution into a modern city, with some of the tallest skyscrapers in the region sitting comfortably alongside its historic palaces and temples. Millions of international visitors flock here every year, drawn by its cultural landmarks and exotic nightlife.

Business has been booming in recent years, with dozens of multinational companies based here and a number of major infrastructure projects recently getting the green light. Medical and dental facilities are widely regarded as being of an excellent standard, which has helped further catalyze the country's tourism industry as more and more people head to Thailand to take advantage of its lower prices—from dental implants to crowns and fillings.

The dental clinics in Bangkok offer outstanding dental treatment that is just as good as anywhere else in the world, and the services are frequently better. Facilities are second-to-none, with dentists here undergoing rigorous training both domestically and overseas. 

From solo-backpackers to families, couples and high-end holidaymakers, there really is something here for everyone. Accommodation ranges from cheap hostels to five-star hotels, with everything in between. A truly international city, the variety of cuisines available reflects this, with tasty street food vendors to luxury fine-dining restaurants catering to all tastes. Bangkok's nightlife is legendary, not to mention its long list of must-see cultural sights, such as the Reclining Buddha Temple and Grand Palace.

One thing's for sure: you won't be short of things to see and do when having dental crowns treatment in Bangkok.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Take in Bangkok?

Dental crown work in Bangkok takes a couple or three days: two appointments with the dentist on the first and last day of your treatment period, with the necessary lab work taking place in between. However, this turnaround time may take just a matter of hours if your chosen clinic has its own on-site lab with modern CAD/CAM technology.

On your first visit, your options in terms of the material to be used will be discussed. Gold crowns, full porcelain, full ceramic, zirconia and other standard materials are all used in Bangkok. When a decision has been made as to which one is most suitable, your dentist will prepare your tooth for the crown.

First, the tooth will be cleaned and shaped for receipt of the crown. Impressions of your mouth are then taken and sent to the lab for the crown to made to fit perfectly. Your dentist will fit a temporary crown until the permanent crown is ready.

On your second visit, the temporary crown is removed and the new dental crown put in place. Once you and your dentist are happy with the fit and color, it will be permanently affixed. If you are having multiple crowns, it would be wise to extend your stay in Bangkok for a few extra days for you to spend time eating and chewing with your new crowns; this will give you time for any minor adjustments to be made by the dentist if needed.

What Type of Dental Crowns Are Available in Bangkok?

In Bangkok, the same brands and materials that are available at home are readily obtainable here. The different materials for dental crowns are zirconia ceramic crowns, full porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-alloy, porcelain-fused-to-gold and full gold.

How Much Can I Save on Dental Crowns in Bangkok Compared to Australia and New Zealand?

The cost of dental crowns in Australia ranges from $1,500 AUD to $4,000 AUD. In Bangkok, dental crowns start from $280.

However, the amount of money you will save does depend on a number of factors, such as the size of the crown, and what material it is made from.

Dental crowns have a lifespan of between five and 15 years, depending on what material it is made from and how much stress is placed on the tooth from eating or bad habits, such as tooth grinding.
