Going to Cozumel just for dental fillings is probably not particularly cost-effective – unless you are planning on having all your old amalgam fillings replaced.  However, if you are already holidaying there or having other dental treatment then it will definitely save you money.

A few hours discomfort should ensure your teeth remain healthy – saving you considerable discomfort and money later on if that simple filling turns into something more serious.

Cozumel’s crystal-clear waters, white sands, jungles and ancient ruins combine for a fascinating island to explore. The laid-backCaribbeanambience of the islanders provide a warm welcome, and with over 300 restaurants on the island you will be spoilt for choice for places to eat. Scheduling in some minor dental work such as fillings should not be too much of an imposition.

Why have Dental Fillings in Cozumel?

Spending less than an hour in the dentist’s chair you can soon be back on the beach or exploring the coral reefs knowing you have not only made substantial savings but also improved your dental health. This is a small price to pay to enhance your overall wellbeing.

The savings you can make are one of the main reasons for having dental fillings in Cozumel – with some prices being around 50% lower. For someone having a number of dental fillings this can lead to substantial savings overall – and may be something you wish to consider if for health reasons you want to replace your amalgam fillings with tooth-coloured non-metallic fillings instead.

This doesn’t mean because prices are lower that the quality is in any way compromised with inferior materials. In fact, the same materials for your dental fillings are available in Cozumel as are available at home – and there are excellent dental labs here that, in fact, US dentists send their work to.

How long do Dental Filling Treatments take in Cozumel?

Each filling can be done in under an hour in most circumstances if only a small tooth or area needs attending to and only a direct filling is required. Larger teeth or bigger areas of decay may necessitate indirect fillings up to 3 surfaces which are bigger and more expensive to do.

For the procedure your dentist first numbs the area with a local anesthetic. The decayed tooth is then drilled to remove the decay and cleaned, shaped and filled with your chosen filling material.

Filling material is a matter of personal taste and your dentist will discuss the pros and cons relative to each type of filling with you.

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

The cost will depend upon the size of the filling and the material used but in the US prices start at around $108 and in Cozumel can be as much as 50% less at around $51.

Fillings aren’t meant to last a lifetime and do need to be replaced from time to time, with composite fillings lasting around 7 years. However, porcelain fillings can last between 15 and 30 years, making the small extra cost payable in Cozumel for a higher quality material well worth it.
