The cost depends on what material you use. Nowadays most people prefer the natural-looking tooth-colored fillings, which can be made from composite, porcelain or zirconia, rather than the old-fashioned silver-colored amalgam.
Composite, white fillings are the least expensive, costing around $155 in the United States, but only $35 in Guadalajara.
They don’t take any longer than they would at your dentist’s at home. Most fillings are usually completed in less than an hour, but some back teeth may take longer because they are larger.
Quick and easy to do, there are no after-effects apart from the numbness in the mouth after the local anesthetic, which takes a couple of hours to wear off.
The procedure involves your dentist drilling out the decayed areas of your tooth (after the local anesthetic has been administered). Once the decay is removed the tooth will be cleaned and the resulting cavity packed with the filling material you have opted for. After a few minutes the material will have hardened and the dentist will file down and shape the material until your tooth feels the right size and you are happy with the bite.
While planning a trip to Guadalajara just for dental fillings is not cost-effective (unless you are having several amalgam fillings replaced), if you already have a trip lined-up then there is no reason why you can’t try and schedule in an appointment for a dental filling.
The cost benefits speak for themselves, as does maintaining your overall dental health by attending to minor problems like fillings before they become bigger (and more expensive) problems. Also, wouldn’t it make a nice to change not to have to rush back to work after your dental filling?
