Porcelain Crowns at Samaritan Dental Tijuana, your Tijuana dentist

Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to:

Have your tooth restored to its original size and shape
Supply additional physical support for the treated tooth
Get a complete “makeover” on the affected tooth

For cases like these, porcelain crowns are the most logical option. While inlays and outlays cover the chewing surface of the tooth and fillings fill in the empty interior space of the tooth, crowns completely cover every visible part of the tooth – which is why they are sometimes referred to as “caps.” A part of your tooth remains but is essentially “rebuilt” to resemble the tooth at its exterior best.

While porcelain crowns certainly can improve the look of a tooth or multiple teeth, it is recommended only in conjunction with prior repair of the tooth – not simply for cosmetic purposes. The average cost at a USA dentist office for standard porcelain over metal crowns is $800-$1000. But at Samaritan Dental in Tijuana we charge $225. This is a great place to get cosmetic dentistry in Mexico
