Island hopping in the Philippines is a popular holiday pursuit for Aussies and Kiwis, and stopping off in Manila for affordable dental crown work is something savvy patients are cottoning-on to.

Manila is home to first-rate dental clinics and labs and provides visitors with modern city amenities and conveniences. The different districts across Manila offer a fascinating glimpse of life in this enormous city, which is often busy, crowded and noisy, but never dull.

Amble around Chinatown’s shopping thoroughfares, if you can. It’s usually very crowded but is a colorful, lively place to visit. Or if enormous shopping malls are more your thing you’ll find plenty throughout the city, including the Megamall in Mandaluyong. The tourist districts around Ermita and Malate have lots of small bars and restaurants to recharge your batteries, or you can always watch the world go by in Rizal Park.

Why have Dental Crowns in Manila? 

Manila is great to visit in its own right, but it is also a base for getting to other areas around The Philippines. While you are waiting for the lab work on your dental crowns you can take a flight to the Palawan Province and witness some of the biodiversity that makes The Philippines such a special country.

Dental crowns are a relatively simple procedure for your dentist to do. However, the lab work is rather labor-intensive which makes them expensive, particularly to Westerners.

In Manila, the process for getting your dental crowns done is the same as at home but with one major difference – the price. The cost of living is so much cheaper here, which means that everything associated with your dental treatment will be considerably cheaper too as wages, office rents and materials are not as expensive.

This is the only reason why dental crowns are much more affordable in Manila, not because they are of inferior quality. In fact, you will find every aspect of your treatment to be comparable, if not better, than what you would receive at home, from the care and qualifications of your dentist to the modern, high-tech equipment used in the clinics.

How long do Dental Crowns take in Manila?

Dental crowns are usually completed in a couple of days by the lab, and you will need two appointments with your dentist on your first and last day.

At your first appointment your tooth will be prepared to receive the crown by filing it down. After that you will have impressions made which will be sent to the lab so they can custom-make the crown.

When the crown is ready you will attend for second appointment with your dentist to have it fitted. The dentist will check that it fits properly, and provided it does will cement it firmly in place.

The procedure from start to finish usually takes 4 days. 

What is the cost comparison of Dental Crown Treament in Australia and New Zealand to Manila?

There are a variety of different materials your crown can be made from and this will affect the price. Your dentist will discuss the merits of each material with you on your first appointment, but ultimately the decision will be yours.

If cost is your main concern then porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) is probably your best option. However, if cost is not a problem then you may prefer to have zirconia, which is the most natural-looking and hard-wearing material available.

Dental Crowns start at around AUD $1,200 in Australia, compared to AUD $83 in Manila, and zirconia crowns are around AUD $1,500 in Australia and around AUD $392 in Manila.

With savings of around AUD $1,000 per crown upgrading to the best quality material might be more within your reach than you thought.
