Dental - Crowning

Post by synkronize » Wed, 17 Oct 2007 2:40 pm

Anyone has any idea how much a regular crown cost in Singapore? Nothing fancy as far as materials are concerned.

I just had a crown put on and it cost $1200 - but this was in Camden Medical Center - so probably on the more costly side with an expat dentist. I had a dodgy crown fitted last year and needed replacing.

In general the prices here are around S$ 600 to 800 for a normal crown, without complications such as rootcanal and alike.

But it makes much more sense to go to Bangkok, to Bumrungrad hospital, arguably the best hospital in Asia, where highly skilled dentists do it for half the price of here in Singapore.

Even with the flight and accomodation, it would turn out to be worth it, even more when knowing their quality is superior.

Welcome! :wink:

Few people here still seem to know about this place, but once you have been there, you don't go anywhere else.

Singapore would wish it had a place like Bumrungrad (medical tourism).

As you can read on the website, they do implants.

Prices will be given at consultation prior to the treatment, but you can always give them a call, they are most helpful.
