Dental Crowns Abroad


Dental Crowns Abroad



What are dental crowns abroad?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped precious metal piece that is placed over the affected tooth or an abutment, should it be part of a dental implant procedure. 

When the natural tooth and root is still healthy, it is given a cylinder shape and then the dental crown is cemented onto it.

Dental crowns are one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures people undergo to keep their oral health intact.
A dental crown fitting might need the following:
  • your natural tooth or a dental implant as the abutment
  • a filling as a middle ground
  • a temporary crown
  • a permanent crown of your choice

Dental tourism facts and numbers

Not sure whether to travel abroad and benefit from dental treatment yet?

Maybe numbers will help you out!

The dental veneer procedure has performed outstandingly on millions of individuals by now. 95% of porcelain veneers remain in place and in their original condition even after 5 years, while 83% remain in good condition after 20 years. However, figures might be lower for composite veneers.


    Cost of dental crowns abroad

    Eastern European countries are very promising and extremely affordable when it comes to porcelain veneers abroad. Romania is one of them. It’s a place where the quality of affordable dental care is exceptional and patient satisfaction is always guaranteed.

    While UK dental crown treatment prices range between £310-480, quotes from dental clinics in Romania offer considerable lower dental crown rates: £130-175

    Dental crowns are applied when people experience one or more of the following issues: have cracked or chipped teeth, teeth got worn out over time, severe tooth decay, crooked, stained, or discolored teeth.
    As a consequence, the final cost of a dental crown is determined by:
    • brand
    • materials used: zirconia, ceramic-metal or PFM (porcelain fused-to-metal), all-metal, gold and base metal alloys, all-ceramic, gold-ceramic, platinum
    • number of treated teeth
    • X-rays sessions
    • + other treatments that might come along: root canal treatment, materials to build the tooth, teeth whitening veneers or other procedures

    After a recent trip to Bucharest, I can’t recommend the Mediwhere team enough as they exceeded every expectation and was always on hand to help with everything I needed!

    Dr Mircea completed my veneer procedure with nothing but patience, 100% recommended as he works to absolute perfection- his work is flawless!

    I am very happy that I chose Mediwhere and wish all of them the very best! Thank you so much for giving me my new found confidence!

    Dental crowns abroad time requirements

    Although a single tooth dental crown placement session usually lasts 1 hour, you would need 2 visits in average. The procedure itself is fairly straightforward, although it can take some time. It really depends on the treatment procedure and level of tooth damage.

    First, an impression of the tooth is taken to aid the application of the dental crown. This is then sent away to the laboratory to be moulded. Once the dentist receives the finished crowns (average 1-3 weeks), they are fitted under local anesthetic and cemented on the natural tooth/implant.


    • consultation and designing a treatment plan
    • shaping the damaged tooth
    • adding the filling
    • taking impressions and applying a molding a tooth resembling yours
    • applying a temporary crown


    • removing the temporary crown
    • removing the temporary crown
    • fixing the crown to the abutment (if part of a dental implant procedure) or natural tooth

    Risks and implications of dental crowns abroad

    • unrecommended to those with unsuitable bone support like an unsuitable root
    • the average time you need to spend with a dental crown treatment is 1 week
    • some may experience an allergy to metal (PFM crowns) and need to opt for a higher-quality dental crown (porcelain, zirconium)
    • the average recovery time is 2-3 days
    • dental crown life depends on the how much patients stick to a dedicated aftercare program
