Repair and strengthen damaged or weakened teeth with dental crowns in Pattaya. Receiving dental care like this in Thailand can save you up to 75%. With Dental Departures, you can find a quality-checked dentist, compare prices and book an appointment online.
Maintaining a healthy smile is an increasingly expensive business, especially for treatments such as dental crowns. However, thanks to dental tourism thriving in places like Pattaya, Thailand's boisterous seaside city, dental crowns have become much more affordable. The savings made can often cover your flights with a little spending money leftover!
A well-established holiday destination since the 1960s, Pattaya is geared up for Western tastes and needs, delivering not only the usual holiday amenities and conveniences but also expert medical and dental facilities that are on a par with those at home.
Only an hour and a half away from Bangkok, Pattaya is a decent base for exploring the laid-back islands dotted around its coast, which offer a peaceful antidote to Pattaya’s frenetic nightlife.
Thailand is one of the world leaders in medical and dental tourism and has invested heavily in first-rate facilities in order to meet the increased demand.
Our dentists in Pattaya are particularly used to treating international patients, providing high-quality services in fully-equipped, modern clinics.
Detailed assessments of dental work required using advanced dental technology and state-of-the-art techniques ensure patients receive a high standard of care from dentists who Dental Departures has pre-screened. Booking an appointment through us gives you a quality assurance that our dentists are well-trained and suitably qualified. Furthermore, our dentists offer warranties on their work and materials used, giving you that added peace of mind.
To a certain extent, this will depend on why you need a dental crown and whether you require other treatments prior to the placement of the crown.
Generally, you will probably want to schedule three to four days in total—with appointments at your dentist on the first day and last day, and the lab work to have the crowns made in between.
Impressions of your teeth are taken at your first appointment and the tooth receiving the crown is cleaned and shaped. The impressions are sent to the lab for the crown to be made. Your dentist may fit a temporary crown in the meantime to protect the tooth.
At your next appointment, the temporary crown is removed and your tooth will be given some final shaping before the new crown is permanently fixed in place.
Note: With new CAD/CAM instrumentation, your dentist can have you fitted with crowns in one sitting, provided there are no extractions.
The size of the crown and the material will affect the cost. In Australia, average prices start at around AUD $1,100 whereas in Pattaya they are significantly cheaper at AUD $250.
Even Zirconia crowns will be less than a third of the price in Pattaya—costing only AUD $485 compared to AUD $1,500 in Australia.
Visiting Pattaya for dental crowns enables you to receive better quality materials at less than half the price of standard materials at home. Good quality materials can last as long as 15 years, making a trip to Pattaya for your crowns doubly worth it.
