How much can I save when having dental implants & cosmetic dentistry abroad?

You can save approximately 50-70% on your dental treatment if you need dental implants abroad, crowns, bridges, veneers or dentures. We’ve created a couple of senario examples so you can calculate your costs.

Why do dental implants and cosmetic dentistry treatments cost less abroad?

In central Europe property costs much less and wages are also less than in western Europe. This means the cost of dental work, such as implants abroad, bridge and crown work, is half /one-third of western European prices. However, the quality of central European dental services is acknowledged as excellent all over Europe. This is why towns such as Budapest, Bratislava, Prague and Krakow are such popular destinations for dentistry abroad.

Do dentists use the same materials and techniques?

Our dentists and implantologist have more than 15 years of experience in treating patients. They are continuously refreshing and improving their professional skills by participating in national and international courses and workshops. Our surgeries are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, and the products of the best-known brands, such as Branemark dental implants, Ankylos dental implants and Cerec 3 crowns, are used by our professionals. We would like to invite you to a tour of our dental clinic abroad and on site labs.
