Can cheap be still good? The truth about affordable cosmetic dentistry

They say that nothing is for free; that quality has a price, and this saying is usually true. Countries that are present in dental tourism – Hungary, for instance – still offer cosmetic dentistry services for significantly more affordable prices than Western-European clinics. The question is: can relatively cheap treatment be good? In the case of Hungary, we can say without doubt that the answer is yes, it can. Affordable prices here do not imply a lower quality service. In Hungary, the most popular dental replacements such as bridges, total dentures , removable dentures fixed on implants or other types of fixed tooth replacement solutions can be obtained for lower prices, but are still premium quality services.

How is it possible that the overall costs of dental implants may be up to 60% cheaper in Hungary than in Western Europe? Do Hungarian dentists possibly use lower quality materials? Or is it their tools and equipment that is worse than what is used by their British, German or Scandinavian colleagues? Fortunately, none of the above is true. Hungarian dentists work with the finest implants, manufactured by the Swiss, the Swedish, the Israeli, or the German; the equipment is world-class, and the training that Hungarian dentists get is completely equal to that of their colleagues living and working in the Western countries.

The secret lies in the differences among living costs. In Hungary , these costs are one quarter of the United Kingdom’s on average. So it makes sense that patients from abroad have to pay considerably less for the same quality of service in Hungary than in their home countries. Compared to the somewhat inflated prices of dental care in the Western and North European countries, the prices in Hungary are perfectly affordable for patients visiting from those countries. Even including flight and accommodation costs, these patients save a lot of money on cosmetic dentistry treatment, and the long-term results of these treatments are excellent.

More on the most popular types of tooth replacement

The dental bridge is one of the most frequently applied types of tooth replacement, used for bridging a tooth gap between two existing teeth. Bridges, as the name suggests, attach several artificial teeth, located side by side, into one single unit. Artificial teeth are attached to the “pillars” of the bridge, and the bridge itself, as a whole, can be placed in the mouth using several methods. It may be attached to the healthy teeth existing in the mouth, to the polished surface of the teeth or to dental implants. The latter solution provides the patients with the opportunity to avoid using removable dental dentures. Bridges attached to implants function as natural teeth; without moving or “clattering” like some removable dentures. If there is no natural carrier for the bridge, it is the insertion of implants in the oral cavity that is usually recommended.

Tooth replacement attached to implants

Implants are very well suited for replacing a tooth; in this case, the dentist places a crown on a superstructure bolted into the implant, which is already healed and has nerves inside. Implants are also suitable for fixing tooth replacements in the completely toothless oral cavity. Removable full dentures – which replace the entire upper or lower teeth, and which are kept in place practically by the gum and the adhesive forces – can be perfectly attached by the use of a few implants. The dentures “click” in; they stick in the connectors that are fixed on the implants, significantly enhancing stability while speaking and while chewing food. If the patient undertakes the implantation of 6-8 dental implants in their lower and upper jawbones, the dentist can attach non-removable implants as bridges or CIRCLE bridges. With the help of this technique, patients can get new teeth that are similar to their previous, natural ones, not to mention the fact that they will be able to chew properly, and can be their true selves again.


In case the bridges are not sufficient, dentures are necessary. We usually differentiate between dentures according to the method they are attached, and based on whether they are removable or not. We also distinguish partial and total dentures. Dentures are recommended by dentists when the tooth gap that needs replacement is so large that bridging, that is, the use of bridges is not possible, or the result would not be satisfactory.

The aim of partial dentures is to replace a certain missing part of our teeth, while full dentures are made for the replacement of the entire teeth. Whether the patient needs partial or full dentures depends on what condition their own teeth are; whether the original teeth can be used to attach and carry the dentures. It is also questionable if there is an opportunity to use implants – to which these types of partial dentures can be attached – in the case of complete tooth loss.

When it comes to patients without any teeth in their oral cavities, in which case implantations cannot be applied due to health-related issues, the only solution for tooth replacement is the use of removable total dentures. This time, artificial dentures that are fitting the gums perfectly, are placed on the gums, and are fixed by adhesive forces present on the palate. In the daytime, removable total dentures can be fixed even more tightly using a special adhesive.
