Tijuana is exciting and cosmopolitan, and is one of the fastest-growing cities in Mexico. It is an important manufacturing and industrial base, and is highly influential in politics, art, education and economics. Geographically, its position on the US-Mexican border, neighboring San Diego, has guaranteed its popularity, particularly for US citizens who travel here for its inexpensive shopping and restaurants.
Tijuana is home to an eclectic mix of nationalities, including North and South Americans and Asians. Spanish is the main language here, but English is widely spoken. The main tourist areas, such as Avenida Revolución offer signs and menus in both languages.
Recently, there has been an influx of visitors coming for dental crowns in Tijuana because of the excellent quality and affordability.
The price of Dental crowns differs significantly in the US and Canada, and is largely dependent on what the crown is made of and what size it is. In the US they can cost anything between $900 and $1,500. In Tijuana, dental crowns start from $295.
The dental clinics in Tijuana are every bit as good as they are at home, the dentists have undergone training as rigorously as dentists in the US and Canada, and the facilities are second-to-none.
Tijuana is conveniently placed for international visitors. It is served by two airports – Aeropuerto Internacional Abelardo L Rodríguez just East of Downtown Tijuana, and San Diego Airport, around 30 minutes drive away.
Tijuana is an energetic city and offers everything that other major cities do. Accommodation is plentiful and has price ranges to suit all budgets. Restaurants are abundant, from street stalls selling local cuisine to US fast-food outlets to high-class dining.
Although Tijuana is on the ocean, it is not renowned for its beaches. However, a short trip by car or bus will bring you to the beach resorts of Rosarito or Ensenada. Here you will be able to engage in typical outdoor activities, such as surfing, horse-riding and fishing. Or you can just relax on the beach and take in the sunshine – a great way to unwind after dental crowns treatment.
Dental crown work takes around 3-4 days altogether, with two appointments at your dental clinic on the first and last days, and the days in between where the lab work takes place. If a clinic has an on-site laboratory the dental crown procedure may be completed in a couple of days.
The procedure involved your dentist first preparing your tooth for a crown. On your first visit the tooth will be thoroughly cleaned and shaped with a drill. Impressions or your teeth will be made and sent to the lab. The lab will made the crown to fit your tooth perfectly. While the lab work is being carried out, a temporary crown will be fitted to the tooth by your dentist.
On the next visit to your dentist the temporary crown will be removed and the surface of the tooth prepared to receive the new dental crown by simply filing it. The new crown will be put in place, and once you and your dentist are satisfied with the shape, color and fit, it will be cemented firmly in place.
In Tijuana, all the same brands and materials – zirconia ceramic crowns, full porcelain crowns, porcelain fused to noble alloy crowns, porcelain fused to gold crowns and full gold crowns – used by your dentist at home are readily available.
Dental crowns should last between five and fifteen years although what material they are made from and how much stress is placed on the tooth from eating or, for instance, tooth grinding will affect their durability.
Modern clinics, tourist-friendly facilities and high standards of dentistry at substantially reduced prices make the decision to have your dental crowns in Tijuana an easy one.
