Are Dental Fillings in Mexico Safe?

May 26, 2022

We know you must be thinking: “Why would I make a trip just to get a dental filling in Mexico done?” And you would probably be right… but only in a certain way. 

Wait… What? While traveling to the southern neighborhood seems too much, only to get a couple of fillings done, one could always consider traveling to Mexico because of the price of teeth whitening, extractions, and other treatments you may have been putting on the back burner.

The truth is that, once you discover all you can save with the price of dental fillings, you could even consider going on vacation to a breathtaking Caribbean destination, such as Cancun.

For several years now, Mexico has gained well-deserved international fame, due to the great number of recognized dentists in Cancun, Tijuana, and Guadalajara, just to mention a few cities.

But let’s not change the subject. You came here to learn more about dental fillings in Mexico, and that is what we’ll give you:

Types of Dental Fillings

Direct Fillings

For this kind of treatment, the filling material is placed into the tooth, and can be made of the following materials:

  • Amalgam
  • Resin ionomer
  • Glass ionomer
  • Composite resin

Indirect Fillings

Here, the first step is getting the filling ready in a lab, before it is placed into the tooth, and can be made of the following materials:

  • Gold alloy
  • Ceramic / Porcelain
  • Base metal alloy

After your dentist has evaluated your case, you can discuss the best options, considering your expectations and specific needs.

You will be amazed when you find that while the price of dental fillings in the US fluctuates around $165 USD, you can get the same treatment in Mexico for about $60 USD.

Don’t wait any longer, get your dental treatments done in one of the most beautiful tourist destinations worldwide, and be surprised by the fantastic facilities and warm attention of Dentics Cancun, a dental group based in this Caribbean destination, featuring some of the most renowned dental specialists in Mexico.
