When do you need a dental crown?

When a tooth is decayed, a dental filling is sometimes enough to restore the tooth’s health and prevent the bacteria from spreading.  But in cases when the tooth has been fractured or the decay has impaired the tooth’s structure, a dental crown is usually a better option. When determining whether a filling or a crown is most appropriate, your dentist will take into consideration the size of the cavity and the condition of the tooth.  A dental crown may be needed if:

  • The cavity is larger than appropriate for a filling
  • Your tooth is cracked or broken
  • Your tooth is weak
  • Your tooth structure has been impaired by other fillings
  • You need a dental implant
  • You’ve had a root canal
  • You’ve opted for a bridge to replace a missing tooth

When you come to BioDental Care for a consultation, Dr. Trejo will perform an examination to determine whether you need a filling or a crown, or some other dental procedure to restore the strength and health of your smile. 

What is a dental crown?

A crown is the part of your tooth that you can see above the gum line, while the roots lie below. When a natural crown is fractured or decayed and can’t be repaired by a filling, Dr. Trejo gently shapes and fit an artificial crown to restore the function and appearance of the damaged tooth.

How much do dental crowns cost in Tijuana, Mexico?

What to expect when you book a dental crown appointment in Tijuana, Mexico

When you book an appointment for a dental crown at BioDental Care, the process will be broken up into two visits. During the first visit, we’ll perform an examination to determine the condition and the scope of the treatment, prepare the tooth to make room for the crown and create an impression to ensure that your new crown will look and feel natural. Afterward, we’ll affix a temporary crown that will allow you to eat comfortably while you wait for the permanent crown to be fabricated. The first appointment usually takes one to two hours, depending on the condition of the tooth and preparation requirements.
It takes approximately one week for the laboratory to custom fabricate the permanent crown or up to two weeks if a full-mouth restoration must be done. Once it’s ready, we’ll call you back to the office for a second appointment, during which we’ll remove the temporary crown and replace it with the permanent one. The second appointment generally takes 40 minutes per crown.

How long does a dental crown appointment take at BioDental?

The procedure takes about 1-2 hours, similar to having a filling done. During the first appointment, Dr. Trejo cleans and shapes the tooth and places a temporary crown. The following visit is when they replace the temporary for the permanent crown.

What do the procedures entail exactly?

Getting a dental crown is much like having a filling performed, both in length of time and comfort level. After decay has been removed and the tooth is reduced in size, leaving only healthy tissue, we take an impression that is used in creating the final crown.  A second visit is scheduled for placement of the final crown. In the meantime, we place a temporary tooth to protect the reduced tooth and to allow you to use it as you would a natural tooth.

What types of dental crowns do we offer at BioDental Care, Tijuana Mexico?

At BioDental Care, we offer zirconia crowns and ceramic crowns. Both are strong, long-lasting, and beautiful options for restoring smiles.  Each material has its particular benefits. 

  • Zirconia has been used regularly in dental restoration since the early 2000s, and it continues to grow in popularity. Known for its durability, zirconia can withstand 5x the pressure of chewing and biting that ceramic can.  Zirconia is also stain-resistant, metal-free, and biocompatible. 
  • Ceramic has been used in dentistry as far back as the late 1800s. Not only is it strong and durable, but because it reflects light in the same way natural teeth do, ceramic crowns look more like natural teeth than other types of crowns. Ceramic crowns are also comfortable, resistant to breakage, and biocompatible.

Sometimes, deciding on the best crown type for your teeth is a matter of personal preference. Other times, the doctor may recommend one or the other, depending on the specifics of your procedure, the location and condition of your treated tooth,  and the condition of the teeth around it.

FAQ about Dental Crowns

No. Thankfully, as with a filling and most dental procedures, local anesthesia is used to numb the area. You may feel a little discomfort as the anesthesia wears off but nothing that can’t be easily controlled with over-the-counter pain medications. We do offer a variety of sedation and anesthesia options upon request. Your comfort is our priority.

It’s best to wait about 30 minutes after the completion of your procedure before eating or drinking. We recommend you wait 24 hours before eating anything hard or sticky that might pull at the crown, as the cement is setting.

Dental crowns can last up to 20 years, depending on care, location in the mouth, and the materials used for the procedure. We’ve seen them last even longer!

Care for a crown the way you care for your natural teeth. Simply brush twice and floss once daily, and make sure to keep up on your regularly scheduled cleanings with us.

I had a great experience with this place. I live in California and have been doing research on places in TJ to get an implant and I ended up picking BioDental Care for these reasons--1) Their... patient coordinator Antonio was a lot more helpful than any of the representatives I spoke to from the other dental clinics in TJ2) They use holistic materials, in particular zirconia ceramic implants as an alternative to titanium. Not a lot of places offer them so this was a big plus for me.3) They are listed with the Better Business Bureau and have an A rating... out of all the clinics I looked at in TJ only 2 were listed with the BBB and BioDental was one of them.4) Their reviews on Yelp, Google and DentalDepartures.com were consistently good... but also one thing I noticed is most clinics in TJ have a lot of 5 star reviews and a lot of 1 star reviews-- leading me to believe some of the 5 star reviews were fake and that the 1 stars were by customers who were really unhappy. This place had a more realistic spread of reviews that seemed like they were from genuine customers, and what negative reviews they did have were over an honest mistake that could happen to any good dentist.As soon as I crossed the border they had their driver pick me up and take me to the clinic... no dealing with taxis or directions. The moment I got out of the car a rep was there waiting for me on the sidewalk. They escorted me to a nearby facility for a CT scan, then took me to their office for the procedure.... everyone spoke perfect English and was very professional. The dentist, Dr. Trejo is very particular and it's clear he holds himself to high standards. After the procedure they had a pharmacy bring my medications up to me in the waiting room so I never had to go fill them... and after everything was done their driver took me back to the border.Their customer experience is incredible... it's basically a luxury dentist office with a patient concierge and private driver. I would recommend to anyone from the US looking for a dentist in Tijuana.read more

I fell victim to a dental office this side of the border. After eleven month of run around and misdiagnosis and pain and suffering, I decided to give Tijuana a shot. I was apprehensive and hesitant... and fortunately did a lot of research. I was very lucky to choose BioDental. For a fraction of the cost in US and ten times better customer service, professionalism and expertise I had my problem taken care of. I am definitely going back and recommend them to anyoneI can. Antonio, the patient coordinator is a real pro and extremely friendly. My thanks to the dentists, their assistants and the beautiful ladies at the front desk. Thank you all and Merry Christmas!Far Mofidianread more

5 stars is not enough for the work done by the team at BioDental Care. I was suffering from autoimmune issues and decided it was time to get my metal mercury fillings removed and replaced. It's so... important when doing so to have them removed properly. I went with BioDental Care because they take the right measures in removing these fillings. My first visit I was very nervous as I usually am when going to the dentist, but the atmosphere at BioDental Care really put me at ease. Dr. Trejo, Carmen, Antonio, and the rest of the team are so kind and wonderful. Also, I need to mention the look of the work they did is fantastic. I went to the doctor recently and when she checked my throat she complimented my teeth! If I ever need major dental work again I will not hesitate to reach out to them. I am so thankful for the work they do.read more

When I found that I was in need of extensive dental care, my friend suggested I go to Mexico to save money. That suggestion resulted in an extensive internet search of Tijuana dentists. Dr.... Trejo’s credentials were pretty impressive and fit what I needed to have done. When I contacted the office Tony was very helpful in addressing all my questions. His English is excellent, and he was able to accurately explain what dental procedures I likely needed, the cost and what to expect and why. \In choosing a dental clinic, I had several factors that were important to me: My safety while in Tijuana was at the top of the list. Also, I did not want my health to be effected from mercury removal and chemicals so the fact that this is a holistic dentistry was a good fit. The price quote I was given prior to my coming was accurate and true to the actual cost. My friend was right, in comparison to US costs, I saved a significant amount of money.My initial concerns for my safety were quickly dispelled. The district the clinic is clean, and well maintained. The shuttle that people usually use to get to and from the clinic was shut down due to Covid, so Tony arranged the most attentive, delightful driver who drove me back and forth from the USA. Of note here is that the border waits were a bit long so if that matters take Tony’s suggestion and stay at the new, very nice, safe hotel that is just a block from the clinic.Before my arrival, I had apprehensions as to whether the glowing on-line reviews were honest, and about what the cleanliness of the clinic would be, and if I would be safe. I had a Hollywood version of what Tijuana would be like. Those concerns were quickly dispelled. Now, after returning home and re-reading the reviews, I am in total agreement with the praises that are lavished upon them.The words used in other‘ s reviews give an accurate description : Precise, qualified, meticulous, competent, perfectionist, accommodating, attentive to one’s needs, and truly caring, In addition, as a RN infection control instructor, I found them to be very clean and I did not see one breach in aseptic techniques. The team work was also remarkable, all of the staff know and do their jobs well, and are fully client and service centered. I was fortunate to also have Dr. Alma Barron Plata work on me. She is truly an angel in disguise as she is highly technically competent and attentive to detail, all while being gentle, kind, and caring. If I had only one word to describe their care and the dental work I received it would be--Outstanding. Excellent could also be used. I am thankful.read more

These guys literarily gave me back my life... they are amazing at what they do!! For 6 years I battled with dental problems, and now I regret not knowing them sooner, because I’m pretty certain I... would have saved a lot of money, time and even some tooth extractions. Before meeting the people of Biodental care, my dental problems had caused me systemic medical problems to where other dentists, (like Dr Edgar of Bioimplant center), had made several costly mistakes, to where I continued going back to them for repeated surgeries which they’d still charge me for. It costed me a lot of money, time, pain and inconvenience. Biodental care, is different. They have so far made my dental experience in Tijuana a wonderful experience. I have never had to return to correct a mistake, one touch and that’s it! Like wow! I’m telling you, the Drs here are highly knowledgeable! This clinic repaired the mess that Dr Edgar of Bioimplant center did to my mouth!I am so glad I found this place.. they are very thorough in their work. The rooms are super clean, and the Drs are super kind. My health has since improved tremendously, and I can’t be happier. I’m keeping this Dr!read more

I recently had several extractions and then implants placed. They picked me up from my hotel in San Diego, brought me to their office and took care of me AND my husband every step of the way. They ... carefully explained our plan of care and were extremely informative on what to expect. The very friendly staff made a very uncomfortable trip more bearable! I highly recommend Bio Dental Care!! They were excellent!!read more
