Dental Tourism In Phuket

Affordable cosmetic dentistry and dental clinics in Phuket

Dental tourism in Phuket is fast becoming increasingly popular for many tourists who visit the Island.

With the cost of cosmetic dentistry in western countries becoming extremely expensive, more and more people are opting to travel to Phuket for affordable treatment and a cheap vacation at the same time.

Dental Tourism in Phuket

I didn't intend to add a page to our website about medical or dental tourism in Phuket.

However after having dental treatment done myself and experiencing first hand what it is like to have dental treatment abroad while on holiday in Phuket.

I feel that I can write about our own personal experience about dental tourism in Phuket.

Firstly, the quality of dental treatment at a dental clinic in Phuket is not only as good.

But in some cases more advanced than what is offered in some western countries.

Most dentists in Phuket have spent time studying, training or working in the USA, Europe or Australia.

The only thing that is not the same is the cost, in Phuket the prices are much lower; a fraction of what you would pay at home, but with the same level of care.

Cosmetic Dental Treatments in Phuket 

  • Tooth Implant or Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or a number of teeth. Implant supported teeth look, feel and function like your own natural teeth, they preserve the facial structure and improve the appearance and function of the jaw
  • A Tooth Filling fills in cavities or holes caused by tooth decay. Tooth-coloured fillings are made from composite resins; they look natural unlike silver amalgam fillings
  • Tooth Veneers or dental veneers are available to correct stained, chipped, or crooked teeth
  • Dental Bridge is commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth
  • Tooth Crowns are also known as dental caps that completely cover a tooth or dental implant. Dental crowns are often needed for decayed, broken or brittle teeth. You can choose from either plastic, porcelain or metal compounds
  • Root Canal treatment is needed when the nerve or blood supply of the tooth known as the pulp is infected through injury or decay
  • Tooth whitening with laser treatment or with a gel and applicator set, that are available from dentists in Phuket

Where to go for Dental Tourism in Phuket

The hardest part is deciding which dental clinic in Phuket to go to.

After researching lots of different dental clinics online I was still unsure where to go as there are so many dental clinics throughout Phuket.

I was lucky enough to find out that a long term friend of ours that was once a dental nurse in Australia had not long returned, after having major cosmetic dental surgery in Phuket and highly recommended her dentist to me.

Dentist Dental Clinic

The Dentist Dental Clinic is owned and operated by Dr Lappakhon Kongraksawech who has teamed together with a Dental Specialist and his friendly staff.

Who are offering affordable dentistry in a friendly, professional and above all provide an honest and caring service, not only for tourists but locals alike.

From my own personal experience Dr Kongraksawech and his Specialist were honest and only advised me to have work done to prevent any further problems with my teeth.

They didn’t try to persuade me to have extra work done on my teeth that I really didn’t need, just what was necessary.

Most importantly I felt comfortably in knowing that someone that I know and trust had been to this dental clinic in a foreign country and was extremely happy with the treatment and outcome of her dental treatment.

Not to mention very happy with the low cost dentistry compared to home.

Below is a price list of the low cost and affordable dentistry at the Dentist Dental Clinic In Phuket.
