Sorry, I posted in the wrong area :( ( Local Talk )
So lets try and get it right this time!

I lost a crown diving, was directed to a local Dentist by the dive shop and was told it will cost approx. 1000 US to fix. Does this sound correct? They will have to do a root canel and replace the tooth as it was lost at sea! :lol:

My first thought, answered by your earlier post, was if the crown was gold or platinum. I have no idea the going rate for a gold crown, especially now with the price of gold above $1,600. Who was the dentist recommended? Most porcelain crowns might run around $300 dollars> It would depend on the dentist's opinion of the condition of the tooth whether they would suggest a root canal or not. U.S. dentists would pretty much always want to do root canals first as that is an extra potential $1,200-1,500 bucks.

Dental prices might average 20-25% of the cost in the U.S. The most pricey procedures dental implants for an example might only be 1/3 the cost in Mexico. I trust the quality of the work in Mexico far more than in the States. Just me, but if prices, costs were the same, I'd never have dental work done in the States.

I agree with the other post. At the very least you need to get another quote. the check up with most dentist is very reasonable like 15-20 usd or free. ask someone else for a recommendation. i use a local dentist on 30 ave on the corner of 33 calle. DR. Maya The price of 1000 usd seems high to me

Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

I agree with the other posts. My daughter comes to Cozumel just for her dental work because of the price and quality. She just had a root canal and crown done that was $350.

Hi,

Would you mind to share the name of the dentist your daughter used and if she is pleased with the docs work? also, when did she have the work done and has she had any problems? I will be back on the island last of this month and need a root canal. Many thanks.

Yes I would love somebody to recommend a good dentist to me as well. I need an implant and crown. I know this procedure takes a while to do, and about 3-4 visits - but this would be a great excuse to visit the island more frequently than I have been. Would appreciate any recommendations of good dentists. Thanks!

I too can vouch for This person last march she did some work on my partial denture and it has been good to go ever since and at a fraction of the cost it
was going to be here in the country of greed.

I called and I have a good feeling about it. Definitely going Walk-in basis they told me. This dental work is way too expensive in the U.S. and most dental plans aren't that great in the U.S.

Just to finish this off, I contacted Alejandra on 30av. and was amazed at how quickly and completely I was treated.
She did a Crown, Bridge and replaced a filling as well as two new ones for under 1k. Cleaning and great conversation free! I highly recommend her. :D
