Do you have deeply decayed, cracked or badly damaged teeth?
Troubled by one or more missing teeth?
Affected by large spaces between your teeth?
Disillusioned with the exorbitant prices of dentists in Canada?
Would you like to restore the size, shape and strength of one or more teeth? Improve the appearance of your smile, relieve pain, prevent further damage, and improve functionality by properly aligning your teeth?
Unfortunately, you know that the costs for dental crowns in Canada are around $ 2000. Can you believe that a few crowns can cost you the price of a new car!
The good news is, you don’t have to break the bank for dental crowns if you choose to travel to Colombia , because for the same quality, you will save 75% of the costs compared to Canada or the United States.
But there is more to it. We leave every year two months in winter and two months in summer to Cartagena in Colombia, which is located on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, in order to take care of all the details at no additional cost and without unpleasant surprises!
A dental crown is not only something complex, but is also a work of art designed to perform and look good for many years to come.
Your teeth are part of your smile and when they are healthy and well-groomed, you can feel much more confident and have long-lasting well-being.
An accident or illness may have weakened or damaged one or more of your teeth. The dental crown is a means by which the natural tooth can be saved, strengthened and to some extent protected from procedures such as tooth extraction.
A dental crown or dental cap is a restoration with a fixed prosthesis intended to restore a damaged tooth to its original shape and size so that you can function with that tooth again.
It can strengthen the tooth and at the same time improve its aesthetic appearance. It is permanently cemented to a deeply cracked tooth, a badly decayed tooth, or a badly damaged tooth.
You can expect a dental crown to last over fifteen years. Longevity depends on its exposure to stress and wear (chewing and biting forces, trauma, teeth grinding) and your personal care.
Tooth decay is one of the contributors, if not the most important, to the need for dental crowns. Relatively minor cavities can be treated with fillings.
However, more severe decay once involved the extraction of teeth. It was a job that dentists didn’t really want to do because of the implications that came with it.
Today, procedures such as root canal treatment can be completed and then a crown adjusted to avoid extraction which is an irreversible procedure.
Here are the criteria if you are an ideal candidate for dental crowns:
Several types of materials are used in the construction of a dental crown and each has its advantages and disadvantages.
The most popular are metal / porcelain crowns, 100% porcelain (therefore ceramic) crowns, and zirconia crowns, as they most closely resemble natural teeth when placed.
The material used for a crown depends on the location of the tooth, the amount of tooth remaining and the cost of the material.
On the other hand, if the crowns are for the front teeth, you will probably opt for materials that have more aesthetic and natural benefits while for your molars or premolars you will choose stronger and more resistant crowns.
Here is a table concerning the prices of a dental crown in metal and porcelain in Canada, the United States, Mexico and Colombia. Note that the price of the plane ticket to Cartagena is the same as Mexico, around US $ 450. Modest accommodation in Cartagena is priced at us $ 300 per week.
On the other hand, it is not advantageous for you to go abroad for just one dental crown and therefore we also present the costs for 6 metal / porcelain crowns to you.
