Why have Dental Fillings in Cancun?

The cost benefit is a major factor – prices in Cancun are only around a third of the equivalent cost in North America. If you are in need of a few fillings then the savings can be quite considerable. It may be something to think about seriously if, either for health or aesthetic reasons, you want to replace all your amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings instead.

Cancun provides many past-times for your enjoyment, from soaking up the sun, snorkeling and diving or just enjoying the different lifestyle. Whether you are a beach bunny or prefer to explore the surrounding areas of the Riviera Maya or the ancient Mayan archaelogical sites such as Chichen Itza, there will always be something to do to suit your mood.

How long do Dental Filling Treatments take in Cancun?

Dental fillings are among the quickest and easiest of all the dental procedures to complete, with one filling taking around half an hour.

The procedure is carried out with a local anesthetic to numb the area surrounding the affected tooth. The dentist then removes the decayed areas with a drill before thoroughly cleaning the ensuing cavity. Your chosen filling material, which can be composite, porcelain, gold, resin, or amalgam is then packed into the cavity. Once it has hardened your dentist will shape the tooth to the correct size and shape until it is comfortable.

Your new filling should last for between 5 and 7 years for composite fillings, but up to 15 years if porcelain is used.

What is the cost comparison of Dental Fillings in Cancun to the US and Canada?

Dental fillings in Cancun are as much as 60% less than they are in North America, however the size of the filling and the material used will affect the cost. In the United States it is around $170 per filling, whereas they are around $60 in Cancun.
