Dental Crowns

The crown is the upper part of the tooth that is located above the root of the tooth. An upper part or layer of the tooth is also called the dental crown. It is a dental veneer which is intended to restore the tooth to its previous aesthetic appearance. The crown protects the tooth from external influences, prevents tooth decay and at the same time preserves the protective properties of the tooth.

Why Choose the Dental Crown?

A dental crown gives the teeth an aesthetic appearance and it can be said that it is a very effective method for treating teeth. The crown preserves the longevity of the teeth and protects the dental enamel layer from external factors.

Thanks to this method, teeth regain their lost functions and their aesthetic appearance. It is an effective solution for the treatment of tooth deformities, tooth fractures and cracks, tooth color deformities as well as for weakened teeth after dental root canal treatment.

Types of Dental Crowns

Nowadays, thanks to the development of modern technology and aesthetic dentistry, more modern and more aesthetic crowns are produced. Whereas before we preferred metal and gold crowns.

Porcelain crowns

Porcelain crown that perfectly matches the natural color of the teeth is used for aesthetic purposes. Generally it is placed on the front teeth. The porcelain crown has excellent light transmission. Thanks to this we acquire a natural smile. Another advantage of this is that it has low hot and cold conductivity.

Zirconium crowns

This is a durable, tissue-friendly crown made from zirconium dioxide. The zirconium crown is extremely resistant to chewing and biting and does not cause any reactions in the human body. It is an ideal material for improving the appearance of damaged and discolored teeth. Compared to metal, zirconium does not leave a gray or purple color on the lips.

E-max crowns

To produce E-max crowns, monolithic lithium disilicate blocks are used. These crowns are produced individually for each person in the laboratory with a CAD-CAM system. Thanks to the ideal transmission of light, E-max crowns adapt perfectly to the natural color of the teeth and give an ideal aesthetic appearance to the front teeth. Its slippery and smooth structure minimizes the risk of tartar formation on dental surfaces. This crown does not cause problems such as purple or gray discoloration of the gums. In addition, it does not contain any metal and does not present any risk of allergic reactions due to metal.

Dental Crown Treatment Process

First, a thorough examination of the teeth is carried out. If necessary, the doctor will treat the tooth on which the crown will be placed. Then we take impressions of the teeth and send them to the laboratory. Until the permanent crown arrives from the laboratory, the temporary crown is put on. When the permanent crown is ready it is placed on the tooth.

Prices for Dental Crowns

Crown prices vary depending on the number of teeth, quality, type and cost of materials used.
