How long do Dental Filling Treatments take in Cabo San Lucas?

Dental fillings are used to restore cavities, which are holes, cracks, decay or structural damage in the tooth. Cavities may cause sensitivity to hot and cold, or even pain. If the cavity is not filled it may lead to damage of the tooth or cause the root to become infected, which may require a dental crown or even cause the loss of the tooth.

Fillings may be either ‘direct’ fillings or ‘indirect’ fillings. Direct fillings are the easiest and quickest procedure to perform. After your dentist has given you a local anesthetic to numb the areas surrounding the infected tooth the decayed area is drilled out and the cavity cleaned, filled and shaped. This process can take as little as half an hour.

Indirect fillings require a larger portion of decay to be removed, and a custom restoration such as a crown fitted on top. So, after removing the decay and cleaning the area impressions will be made and sent to the lab for the crown to be made. After a day or two, when your dentist has received the crown back, you will return to have the crown cemented into place. This process usually requires several appointments.

Dental fillings should last between 5 and 7 years if composite is used, but could be as long as 15 years if porcelain is used.

What is the cost comparison of Dental Fillings in Cabo San Lucas to the US and Canada?

In the United States dental fillings start at around $170 per filling, whereas in Cabo they are around $90.
