Repair and strengthen your teeth with dental crowns in Nuevo Progreso for 80% less than prices at home. Save almost a thousand dollars and book your appointment with Dental Departures.
A pretty little town on the US-Mexican border near Weslaco in Texas, Nuevo Progreso is a popular place with snowbirds, retirees and day-trippers alike. Great shopping and warm weather attract many for bargain-hunting and it is an excellent place to come for big savings on dental crowns.
Many patients regularly travel here from Texas for their dental treatment – choosing to leave their car on the Texas side and strolling over the International Bridge into Nuevo Progreso. The streets are perfect for a leisurely stroll, with plenty of handicraft stalls to mooch around and lots of street vendors to pick-up a chilled drink from when you’ve worked up a thirst.
Dental crown work can be very expensive north of the border but in Nuevo Progreso dentists can do this procedure for as much as 80% less! This is a massive saving -especially when you consider that most crowns are well over $1,000.
This doesn’t mean that just because the prices are low you will receive inferior quality treatment. At Dental Departures we know it is difficult trying to choose a good dentist to undertake your dental care, so we have already quality-checked the dentists we list, so you don’t have to.
We look at dentist qualifications, experience and professional memberships as well as visiting their clinics to check hygiene and safety standards and the types of equipment they use, and only if we are happy do we recommend them to you.
In common with many of our other dentists in Mexico the dentists we work with in Nuevo Progreso are as well-trained and qualified as their US counterparts – with many also having membership of the American Dental Association.
The procedure usually takes 3-4 days from start to finish. You will need an appointment with your dentist on the first day, then the lab work will be done over the next few days and you will return again to see your dentist to have the crown fitted.
The procedure involves your dentist cleaning and shaping the tooth receiving the crown on your first appointment. Impressions will be made that day and sent to the lab. When the lab has returned the finished crown to your dentist you will go back to have it fitted. Your dentist may have fitted a temporary crown at your first appointment and this will be removed and some final shaping and adjustments made to ensure the new crown fits well. When you and your dentist are happy with the feel of the new crown it will be fixed firmly in place.
Crowns can obviously come in all shapes and sizes and this, as well as the material it is made from, will affect the final cost. Options on materials will be discussed by your dentist before your treatment commences.
The cost of a crown in the US is approximately $1,150 but in Nuevo Progreso they start from $220.
The savings are so substantial that you may consider it worth it to upgrade to a higher quality material, such as zirconia, which will last for years longer than a standard crown.
