To fit the dental porcelain crowns, a layer is shaved from the tooth that is receiving the treatment to prepare it for the crown. They are a “Crown” that goes on top of the tooth restore the damaged tooth.
Porcelain Crowns might be needed and you might require a trip to Cancun in the following situations:
- To protect decayed teeth from breaking or to hold parts of the cracked tooth together
- To cover severely discolored teeth or misshaped teeth
- For dental Implants
- To restore teeth that are severely worn down or broken
- To cover teeth with large fillings when there isn’t a lot of enamel or tooth left
There are a couple different crowns available. For permanent crowns they can be made from all metal, porcelain fused to metal, all porcelain, all resin or all ceramic.
For dental crowns in Cancun you would need 2 visits to the clinic and you should stay in Cancun for at least 3 days. On the first visit we would examine the tooth and prepare it, take an impression and send it to the lab. On the second visit Dr. Irma Gavaldon would remove the temporary crown and place the permanent dental Crown.

Porcelain fused to metal Crowns
These types of crowns supported by an underlying metal structure given them greater strength that just all porcelain crowns.
Zirconia Crowns in Mexico
These crowns tend to eliminate metal from restorations, instead of having precious metals supporting the porcelain; zirconia crowns here in Cancun use the strongest porcelain available today as a substructure.
All porcelain Crowns
These types of crowns are similar to the Cerec crowns but usually have a more natural look. These are custom made in a dental lab here in Cancun, by a world-class ceramist here in Cancun. They are shaded to match the color of other teeth like dental Veneers. They are great for front teeth where esthetics is very important to the patient.
Precious metal crowns
These types of crowns included all precious metals including gold. These are the strongest types of crowns because no porcelain is used. Esthetics might be a concern for some patients coming to our dental clinic here in the hotel zone of Cancun. They are the best option for people with a very strong bite or who clench their mouth in the back teeth.
