Tooth-colored fillings are much more popular than silver-colored amalgam fillings nowadays. These can be made from composite or porcelain – composite being the less costly option.
In the US and Canada composite fillings are around $150 each, whereas in Playa del Carmen you can get them for less than half price at around $70.
Dental fillings are easy and quick to carry out and can be completed in one visit in less than an hour. Larger back teeth may take longer, depending on how much of the surface of the tooth needs to be filled.
Before the fillings are done the areas of decay are removed from your tooth by gently drilling these out. You will be given a local anesthetic to numb the area around the tooth before the process begins.
Once all the decayed areas are removed your dentist will thoroughly clean the tooth before packing the cavities with the filling material you have chosen – whether this is composite, porcelain or even gold.
When the filling material has set, the surface will be filed down to smooth it and to correct the size. Your dentist will carry on adjusting the size until you are happy with how it feels.
Unless you are having a lot of fillings (or perhaps you would like to replace all your amalgam fillings) traveling to Playa del Carmen just for this procedure is not really very cost-effective.
However, if you are already on holiday in the area – or you need an emergency dental filling - you may want to think about having your dental fillings done here. Obviously, you will save money, but by taking just an hour or two out of your holiday you can really take care of your oral health. And how nice will it be not to have to rush back to work?
