Dental Crowns

A crown or dental cap is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.  A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain crowns are the most prevalent in Mexico, because they resemble your natural teeth.  

They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.  Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

Reasons for Dental Crowns

  • Cosmetic enhancement.
  • Decayed teeth.

Dental crowns can cost between $500-1500 USD per tooth depending on the type and size of crown used.

The cost of dental crowns in Mexico can be up to 70% cheaper for the same standard of treatment care and identical quality dental work around the world.
