Now, let’s learn about dental crowns and bridges.

Understand Dental Crowns and Dental Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are permanent prosthetics that are cemented to your teeth.

You need not remove them everyday for cleaning like you do for dentures.[1]Colgate
What are dental crowns and tooth bridges?
“Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist”
View in Article

Dental Crowns

Crowns are hollow dental caps placed on existing teeth or teeth implants.[2]Canadian Dental Association
Crowns: Restoring damaged teeth
“A crown, also called a cap, is a hollow, artificial tooth used to cover a damaged or decayed tooth”
View in Article

Being tooth-colored caps, they cover the flaws concerning size and shape.

Further, they add strength as well.[3]Colgate
What is the difference between dental crowns and bridges?
“When a crown caps a damaged, weak, or decaying tooth, it’s generally to help maintain its size, strength, shape, and appearance.”

Typically, crowns are used:[4]Colgate
What are dental crowns and bridges?
“Your dentist may recommend a crown to:Protect a weak tooth from fracturing Restore a fractured tooth,Cover a dental implant, Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth”
View in Article

  • As the visible part of a dental implant.
  • To improve aesthetics of damaged visible teeth.
  • To restore the aesthetics or function of a broken or fractured tooth.
  • To provide strength and reduce the risk of fracture in a weakened tooth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges “bridge” the gap left by missing teeth and can replace more than one missing tooth.[5]Hiossen implants
Dental bridges vs. dental implants
“A dental bridge, as the name implies, literally “bridges” the space between teeth that results from missing teeth. ”
View in Article

They improve aesthetics and chewing ability.

Like crowns, they may be supported on existing teeth or teeth implants.

Note that bridges are recommended if you prefer non-invasive and non-surgical methods.[6]Hoissen implants
Dental bridges vs. dental implants
“Here are some advantages of dental bridges:Nonsurgical: You won’t require surgery, Less invasive: You can easily replace a tooth that has been missing for a while.”
View in Article

A typical dental bridge has two crowns holding a center pontic.

The pontic teeth span the gap created by missing teeth.

The crowns hold them on either side. They anchor the entire bridge on the existing natural teeth or implants.[7]Medical News Today
Dental bridge: Everything you need to know
“The term “bridge” refers to a structure that contains one or more fake teeth. The structure is often anchored in place with one or more crowns on either side of the gap in the mouth…Dentists call each fake tooth in a bridge a “pontic,” …”

Now, let’s look at the different types of crowns that Mexico offers.

Dental Crowns Types Available in Mexico

Depending on the material used, dental crowns can be full porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, porcelain fused to gold, or Zirconia.

Full Porcelain/ Ceramic Crowns

Porcelain or ceramic crowns are made completely out of porcelain material.

They present a translucent look and closely resemble natural teeth.

Due to their natural aesthetics, they are ideal for replacing front teeth.[8]Healthline
How does gold crown stack upto porcelain?
“Because they look so natural, porcelain crowns are most often used on front teeth, which tend to be the most visible to others.”
View in Article

The average cost of a single unit of a porcelain crown in Mexico is about $250, which is only a fraction of the US cost.

Full Metal Crowns

Gold Crown in Mexico

As the name suggests, full metal crowns are completely made of metal.

Your dentist in Mexico may use a metal alloy, as per your case, to make your dental crown.

Some dentists also recommend a gold alloy crown for patients allergic to certain metals.

Metal crowns are not aesthetically pleasing.

However, they provide better strength than others.[9]Animated teeth
Types of dental crowns
“All metal They’re known for their great strength and exceptional durability”
View in Article

The cost of metal crowns in Mexico starts at $120 and depends on the material used.

Gold crowns usually cost more than other metal crowns.

Porcelain Fused to Metal or PFM Crowns

PFM crowns are metal crowns with a thin porcelain layer.

They are stronger than all-porcelain crowns and are also more durable.[10]Canadian Dental Association
Crowns restoring damaged teeth
“Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns look natural and are stronger than porcelain or composite crowns”
View in Article

PFM crowns give a better survival rate compared to porcelain crowns.

However, they have less appealing aesthetics due to the metal framework underneath the porcelain.[11]WebMD
Dental Crowns
“porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns look most like normal teeth. However, sometimes the metal underlying the crown’s porcelain can show through as a dark line, especially at the gum line and even more so if your gums recede. ”
View in Article

Porcelain fused to metal crowns

PFM Crowns in Mexico

For this reason, they are rarely recommended to replace front teeth and mostly used for rear teeth replacement.

Porcelain fused to gold crowns are an alternative to PFM crowns for patients allergic to metal.

In Mexico, the average cost of porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns is $210.

Zirconia Crowns

Zirconia crowns

Aesthetically Pleasing Zirconia Crowns in Mexico

Zirconia crowns are made of a material called zirconia.

This material is well-known for its strength and aesthetic appeal, making it ideal for front and rear teeth.[12]Colgate
What are Zirconia crowns?
“Zirconia, however, is a much stronger, more durable material that also has a similar aesthetic to teeth”
View in Article

The cost of Mexican dental crowns made of Zirconia is $400 and you will save up to 80% by choosing them.

CEREC Crowns

These are also known as same-day crowns.

CEREC crowns use CEREC® CAD/CAM technology to fit porcelain or zirconia crowns in just one day.[13]Healthline
Everything you need to know about a dental crown
“You can get a crown in a single appointment. Some dental offices offer same-day crown installation using one of several methods involving computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM). ”
View in Article

The process of getting same-day crowns is the same as other crown types except for the duration.

After taking the 3D scan of your mouth, the crowns are prepared and fixed on the same day.
