There are people without enough dental coverage, and there are people who simply cannot afford to pay $4,000 for two dental implants.
But they can also not go to work with two missing teeth in the front or with bad breath complications due to rotting teeth that need fixing. There is a solution available, and this is called dental tourism.
Abroad, you can get high quality dental care at up to 50% lower prices. You will receive treatment in modernly equipped dental clinics, and treatments are performed by highly specialized and experienced cosmetic dentists.
Costa Rica, Mexico or Hungary in Europe seem to be three of the leading dental tourism destinations when it comes to excellent care at affordable prices.
For instance, teeth whitening costs exactly 50% less in Mexico than you would pay in the US. In the US, you will pay even up to $4,500 for dental implants, while if you choose Costa Rica, you will pay only between $600 and up to $900 for the same procedure.
Dental bridges which represent a lower cost alternative for implants, are again much cheaper in these dental tourism destinations just mentioned.
For one single dental veneer, in the US you will pay about $1,300-$1,500- but you cannot get one single dental veneer in order to get perfect results.
For the exact same high quality porcelain dental veneer, you will pay only about $500 if you choose to travel to neighboring Mexico and get your veneer at a reputable dental clinic there.
For porcelain to base metal crowns in Mexico you will pay only as little as $250, compared to even $700 charged in the US for the same procedure.
Orthodontics represents yet another outrageously expensive treatment in the US. If you do a thorough research, you will see that you can save thousands of dollars on your dental braces if you just take the effort to travel to another country and get your braces there.
There are many alternatives, and it is really only up to you to research them and take the final decision.
