TriDent Budapest, Hungary Frequently Asked Questions

Questions and Answers

Q. How much money can I save? An average dental tourist saving around £ 2.500 (around € 3.400) based on making 2 implants, 8 porcelain crowns, 10 fillings (composite restaurations), 1 panoramic x-ray, 4 intraoral x-rays, visiting TriDent Budapest 3 times. Let's take another example in Euros. Say your dentist says you need twelve crowns or units of bridgework at 900 Euros per unit. That's a total of 10 800 Euros. At TriDent Budapest that would cost 2316 euros. If we add 15% to that to cover any extras, that is a total of 2663 Euros. That would represent a huge saving of over 8137 Euros on your local dentist's price giving plenty of scope for an enjoyable stay in Budapest.
